There are a lot of products marketed as treatments for acne, but not all of them are effective. Regular cleaners and toners will not target the underlying cause of your acne, so look for treatments that contain the following active ingredients: Benzoyl Peroxide, Nicotinamide, and Potassium Hydroxyquinoline Sulphate.
These kill the bacterium responsible for acne, soothe inflammation, and dry up excess sebum. Targeting the sebaceous glands and eradicating the bacteria will tackle existing spots and prevent new ones from forming. Choose an acne treatment product that won’t dry out your skin. Many acne sufferers have dry skin, so use acne treatments in conjunction with acne specific cleansers, toners, and moisturisers.
