How To Cure Acne

Millions of teens and adults have experienced acne, many of them struggling to find a permanent solution or even failing to find something that works at all. There are also a thousand acne products out there. Am I the only one who sees something wrong with this picture? If there are a thousand products that supposedly can get rid of your acne, then why do millions still struggle with it?

This is what caused me to start digging deeper into the subject and find a solution for myself. First thing that I found was that any product claiming to cure acne in "a day" or "only 3 days or less" was a lie. This is simply impossible. Acne grows deep in your skin before it is even ever visible and by the time you can see it, the pimple is pretty mature and nearing the end of its life cycle. All that’s left is for it to either come to a head so you can pop it, or for it to die down. This makes it difficult to treat. Even the strong oral prescription Accutane cannot treat acne in a matter of days, which is one of the most effective acne products out there, but saved as a last resort due to the many side effects it can cause including suicide from depression or death.

That is not to say there is no hope for getting rid of acne. Rather than treating a pimple that is old enough to be visible to the eye, the best approach is preventing it from even happening. Much like the best way to cure a cold is preventing one from ever happening by washing your hands. The only way to get rid of acne is through a consistent use of an acne treatment over a course of at least a few weeks. This gives the treatment time to bring any acne deep in the skin to the surface and preventing new pimples from forming. I know it is a slow process, but if acne was that easy to cure, then no one would have it and the world would be a much better place. Just like curing any illness or injury, acne is no different in that your body needs time to recover.  Click the link below for a database of the most common and effective acne treatments divided into categories depending on your interest:
