Acne Treatment Products

Acne is a common skin condition that occurs when the oil-producing (sebaceous) glands of the skin enclose the hair follicles, causing the hair follicle to get inflamed. Acne is normal during puberty, and a significant 70-90% of teens experience acne. During puberty, increased testosterone (in both genders) can cause the sebaceous glands to over-produce oil, which then gets trapped under block skin and allows for bacteria to multiply. Acne is not exclusive to teens, as many people also get adult acne. Adult acne can be the result of stress or perhaps hormone changes from menopause or a change in birth control. Some people are just more likely to get acne, and it cannot be prevented.

While acne is unaffected by diet and hygiene, dermatologists recommend the best action to manage oily skin is to cleanse your face both morning and night. Gentle cleanser since harsh soaps can trigger the skin to increase oil production. Benzac products contain benzoyl peroxide and has is mildly drying, which helps excess oils and dirt to be easily cleansed from the skin. Products such as the Oxy Cleansing Pads, which are medicated with salicylic acid, glycolic acid, or other oil-reducing ingredients are a helpful daily product to use in your skincare routine. Canadian Pharmacy Meds also offers cosmetic blotting papers, which are a good way to control excess oil during the day between face washings.
