Which are the best acne treatments? It depends.
by: Peter Crump
Iím sorry to be the bearer of bad news but itís not as simple as just listing the best acne treatments. Thatís not because thereís no good acne treatments available, quite the opposite in fact, itís just that thereís a few steps to take before deciding which are the best acne treatments for your acne.

Not everyone has the same acne problem and so the best acne cures for one person may not be the best acne cures for another. Acne attacks different people differently. For some, itís just a mild attack which will be managed quite satisfactorily with some simple facial cleansing routines. No more required. No need to search out any acne treatments, certainly no need to investigate the best acne treatments.

For others acne can be a serious problem indeed. Acne can be serious enough to produce scars which, if left untreated, can be emotionally and psychologically distressing. These people certainly need active acne intervention, and the best acne treatments available.

How do you know which category you are in? Consult your doctor. Itís not always easy to know whether your acne is a simple passing phase which can be easily controlled, or something which needs serious intervention before itís too late. And your doctor will tell you the best acne treatments for your individual needs. The best acne treatments for YOU.

And not all acne medications work the same way for everybody. The best acne medications for some people may not work at all for others. This is just the way it is, thatís not restricted to acne medications.

So, often, finding the best acne treatments can be a difficult process. The most highly recommended treatment may not work at all for you, but work well with your best friend. Thatís life, you need to move on to try another one until you find the best acne medication that works for you.

And remember that acne isnít a condition that is cured by a simple application of an acne medication. Acne isnít cured, itís controlled, itís managed. Acne decides for itself when it is finished. Up to then you need to be active in managing it. Once you body says ďenoughĒ then itís over. So the best acne treatments are treatments which need to be continued as necessary. Donít expect to just apply a treatment and ďhey prestoĒ no more acne. Sorry, itís not that simple.

And adult acne? Which are the best treatments for adult acne? Same answer. It depends. The best treatments for adult acne are the same as the best acne treatments for teenagers. They are the treatments that work for you. After you have seen your doctor, had your acne checked out, tried one or more until you find the one that works, and then settled on that one. Then youíve found YOUR best acne cure.

And, one final suggestion, donít buy a suggested acne cure, apply it for a week and expect that your acne will be gone. Itís not that easy. Apply the product for at least 2 or 3 months, or longer as recommended, before you make any judgements. Acne takes a long time to develop, and a long time to control. Even the best acne treatments on the market take quite a while to work. And remember to apply them exactly as recommended.

So, in closing, what are the best acne treatments? See you doctor, then test and try until you find the one for you. Most of them work for some, and none of them work for everyone.
