Essentials for an Entire Acne Care Regimen
Most dermatologists recommend a full daily acne care regimen. A skin care
regimen consists of multiple steps, and to complete each step, you'll apply one or more products.
The first step in a healthy acne care regimen is cleansing, which is necessary to remove impurities that can clog the pores. Cleansers
are offered in liquid, bar and towelette forms, giving you the freedom to choose the type that is most convenient for you.
In addition to cleansing, an effective acne care regimen usually includes moisturizing. This is done with a specially formulated moisturizer that hydrates and nourishes the skin without worsening congestion. Moisturizers for acne
control are offered for every skin type. For best results, you'll want to choose one that's the right match for your complexion.

Treatments for Existing and Future Blemishes
Acne treatments are the products that are used to address existing blemishes and decrease the risk of future breakouts, and they are applied in between cleansers and moisturizers during a daily regimen.
Spot treatments speed up healing to help breakouts disappear as fast as possible. This may be done with a drug that breaks down whiteheads, such as sulfur, resorcinol or salicylic acid, or with antibacterial, oil-controlling benzoyl peroxide.
All-over acne face lotions, creams, gels and balms are used to keep the pores clear and make breakouts less likely to occur. The most commonly used FDA-approved active ingredients in these products are benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid.
