Simple Steps for Effective Facial Acne Treatment

For skin tolerant of most acne products there are many powerful options to heal your acne.

Facial acne can be annoying and even affect your confidence. With proper treatment, you can reduce your acne and be on your way to a clearer complexion.

If you are dealing with facial acne, chances are it is facial acne vulgaris, the most common type of acne seen as pimples, cysts, and blackheads. This acne often first appears in your classic T-zone, but eventually spreads to involve your entire face. How you treat your acne breakouts will vary based on how tolerant your skin is to acne products.

Below is my simple, four-step acne treatment for facial skin that is tolerant of most acne treatment products. Follow this program and banish your facial acne!

Step One: Cleanse

ultimate acne kit

Use my Foaming Acne Treatment Cleanser twice a day to thoroughly clean your face. This medicated cleanser also starts to correct your acne problem because it combines 2% glycolic acid with 2% salicylic acid. It works well for oily skin, but won't over dry normal skin. The wash gently lifts oil and unclogs pores to prevent and treat your pimples. 

Increase the effectiveness of the cleanser by using either a Buf Puf Exfoliating Facial Sponge, the Clarisonic SMART Profile or the Clarisonic Mia 2 Skin Cleansing Brushes.

Step Two: Correct

Next, kill acne germs and treat blackheads and by using my Salicylic and Glycolic Acid Acne Treatment Pads and Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Cream 2.5%.

Save money and make ordering easier with my Ultimate Acne Solutions Skin Care Kit, which contains the foaming cleanser, treatment pads, and acne cream from the first two steps. Start your treatment with my regular strength kit. If your skin tolerates this strong treatment combination, you can advance to the extra-strength kit, if needed.


Step Three: Hydrate

After your treatment, apply Daily Moisturizing Face Cream for Oily to Normal Skin to the places on your face that need a little more hydration. If you notice a lot of redness after using your acne treatment products, consider applying Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy twice a day to those areas. Be sure to put on the green tea therapy before applying your face cream and sunscreen.

Step Four: Protect

Finally, be sure to use daily sun protection to prevent hyperpigmentation of acne scars and to improve your overall anti-aging facial skin health. I recommend only mineral zinc oxide sunscreens. Chose from Sheer Strength Pure Physical Spray Sunscreen or EltaMD UV SPF 46 for non-tinted protection, or Sheer Strength Pure Physical Tinted Matte Sunscreen for the highest tinted matte technology in today's sunscreens. This product has advanced tinting technology to blend with all skin pigment to help cover complexion flaws such as pimples or acne scars.
