Article Body:
Recent studies have concluded approximately 90% of all teenagers, 50% of all adult women and 25% of all
adults had suffered from acne, either as a chronic skin disease or at some point in their lives. Although
there's no universal cure, acne is definitely easier to treat now than it used to be. However, finding the right
acne treatment product is still a mystery for many of the sufferers.


Despite all the scientific knowledge today, people still think that acne is caused by particular things we do.
Actually, it is mostly a combination of factors underneath our skin that lead to acne. The good news that
there are acne treatment products that can eliminate it completely in about 95% of all cases.


Your skin has many wonderful features that help it recover completely even from serious acne if treated
properly:


* It is self healing.
* It is very elastic.
* It registers and remembers sensations very precisely.
* It is very resilient.
* It is self-cleaning and hardly ever suffers any serious infection.
* It lets in some elements and protects you from others.
* It holds in the entire amount of liquid that flows through your body.


Salicylic Acid
There's a lot of evidence that salicylic acid is one of the most effective approach on acne problems. It
decreases the number of primary acne lesions, as well as the number and severity of all lesions associated
with acne. Salicylic acid is safe to use even on dark skin and gives good and fast results.


Glycolic Acid


Among popular alpha hydroxyl acids, glycolic acid is one of the most commonly used. It has similar results
with a chemical peel. Even when used in strong concentrations, glycolic acid has only few negative side
effects. Long-term day to day use may also have a beneficial effect on acne scars.


Glycolic acid is also effective in increasing skin resistance to ultraviolet light, improving moisture retention,
as well as the general skin condition. However, even though it is quite effective and has only minor side
effects, it is better to use as part of a more complex skin care system.


Benzoyl Peroxide


Benzoyl peroxide is a widely used ingredient in acne treatment products. It used to be very popular in the
1930s, but since then, medical science has come up with new and more effective treatments. However, many
dermatologists are still pleading for the benefits of acne treatment products that contain Benzoyl peroxide.


In addition to its antibacterial effect, Benzoyl peroxide apparently has an anti-oxidant action as well. Among
its most common side effects is dry and irritated skin.


Many acne treatment products available on the market today use one of the ingredients mentioned above in
combination with other ingredients. Some of the most famous and effective products against acne are
ProAcrive, ZENMED Derma Cleanse System, Accutane and Benzoyl Peroxide. However, when purchasing
an acne treatment product, you have to look through the side effects thoroughly, as some of them may be
worse than your acne itself.
