July 23, 2010, Newsletter Issue #188: Natural Treatment Is Best for Acne

Tip of the Week

While natural acne treatment is the preferable way to rid your skin of blemishes, most people use products found in their local pharmacy. Many over-the-counter remedies contain chemicals that kill acne bacteria quicker.

There are two general ingredients found in many acne treatment products. Benzyl peroxide kills the bacteria that causes acne; however, it often irritates sensitive skin and cause overall dryness. Salicylic acid removes the dirt and oil that clogs pores and destroys acne-causing bacteria. It is easier on the skin and does aid in collagen production. These two ingredients are found in most over-the-counter acne medications and are the most common forms of treatment.
