Common Acne Treatment Mistakes

Most people suffering from acne commonly make simple mistakes when treating their acne. So, hopefully we can help some of you avoid making these mistakes.

Perhaps the biggest mistake everyone makes is trying too many acne products at once; most of the time they are natural or home made products -- which usually makes you think it's safe, but it is definitely not the case. Although your skin is able to endure a lot things, it is more delicate than you might think. This is why you must be very selective using acne treatments.

Acne can be caused by internal and external factors, so identifying the root of your acne problems is key to select the best acne treatment, which should always include gentle acne skin care products with dermatological-grade ingredients to treat the causes of acne. In some cases it can be stress related, or triggered by hormone disorders, etc.

If you always keep this in mind, you can get rid of acne permanently.

There are no miracle quick-fix home made acne solutions. If you are looking for overnight acne treatments, then you need to make sure these contain professional acne medicines.

Typically acne sufferers make the mistake of trying different supplements, vitamins and minerals, combined with moisturizers, spot treatments, exfoliants, face cleansers, and many other things.

Another common slip is that they normally don't give acne treatments enough time to really work on the skin. Treating acne can be a long process sometimes -- changing your acne products after using them for only a week is a big mistake. This will only disturb your skin and produce more breakouts. Just try to be patient and give your skin enough time to get used to your acne treatment.

The best acne advice we can give you is to try not to use too many acne products at once. Simply start with a gently face cleanser and oil-free moisturizer, and treat your breakouts with an acne lotion. You don't really need more than that.

Picking and squeezing. This can be hard to avoid sometimes, however, popping zits only aggravates the problem and it will take longer for your pimples to heal. Besides, you'll be guaranteeing black spots from acne.

Keep it simple and try a professional Acne Treatment System.

Secret Acne Weapon: Relax and Heal Your Acne Stressed Skin

Acne treatment has become a huge industry; medication and surgical procedures (both aimed at curing acne) as a measure to clear and eliminate acne. Nonetheless, a simple and effective practice is right in front of us (or under us I should say).

In today's fast-paced, frustrating, demanding, and difficult world, stress can take a toll and it's been medically proven to be directly connected to acne breakouts. Whether is your work, college, kids, social life, or perhaps medical conditions, these can all easily lead to stress and end-up causing acne. Not to mention other skincare conditions. The secret weapon to defend your skin against stress-related acne breakouts is relaxation.

You should always use an acne treatment -- but you should also practice relaxation to help clear your acne stressed skin.

The relation is still not too clear. What we do know is that stress provokes tension and anxiety, which can both trigger the production of sebum (the oily substance that lubricates skin), and as we already know, increased sebum production means oily skin -- and oily skin means clogged pores and acne breakouts. Also keep in mind that stress delays the healing process of skin. And of coarse, we should always avoid falling into the vicious cycle of feeling mentally stressed-out about having acne breakouts.

How can you relax about acne?

It's very straightforward. You can start by getting a good night sleep. When you sleep well, the body recharges, and it keeps stress levels down, reducing its production of sebum. Also, practice breathing exercises to help calm you down.

Another great way to relax your body is by clearing your mind. Try playing some Tibetan music to prod your chakra. Get into a meditation mode and clear your mindset.

So, if you're stressing about which is the best acne treatment for your skin? Perhaps you should just relax about it. MenScience Acne Treatment System is guaranteed to eliminate acne in 3 simple steps. It's a clinically developed acne treatment with dermatological-grade acne medication for visible results.

Isn't this relaxing?

Curing Your Acne Breakouts

Our previous acne posts covered general information about acne and the causes of acne for those of you experiencing frequent breakouts looking for a fast cure, yet effective and definitive acne treatments for your skin. In this segment we present the best acne protocol clinically developed by our skincare experts in this bleb field, along with a practical list of which acne products you should apply to start your own acne treatment cure.

How to cure acne: Starter guidelines for your acne stressed skin:

Learn what each acne product does for your skin.

Distinguishing between acne product ingredients and their general benefits for your skin is very important. Many acne specialized sites concur that both the acne product ingredients and the benefits for the skin have much greater importance in maximizing their benefits.

This includes both general and specific benefits; examples of this include the specified purpose of each acne product like acne treatment/repair/diminish, and specific ingredient benefits such as absorbs into the skin to clear acne-causing bacteria.

Even if you just want to prevent acne, you should still be learning the benefits of every medicine. MenScience acne experts agree that many people wanting to prevent acne are going to acne information web sites; as they want to guarantee not breaking out, and finding the best acne medicine. So if you want to learn how to prevent acne, our acne skin care experts agree - read MenScience's acne treatment recommendations.

Distinguish between acne medicines

According to our acne experts, "Acne is triggered by several factors, including hormone imbalance, overproduction of sebum (the oily substance on the skin) and growth of bacteria (known as P. acnes). For this reason, using gentle, effective acne medicine (not abrasive) is an integral part of an acne treatment as it regularly removes the blockage of dead cells from pores."

One acne medicine that stands out greatly is the Acne Spot Repair. According to feedback from customer reviews, nearly 99% of current customers that have used this zit killer give it 5-stars and say it has become the main acne product in the their acne treatment routine.

Steve, from Tucson, AZ, a 48 year-old male with occasional breakouts - has made this his "go to" acne medicine every time he gets a pimple now. "I thought I was using the best until I tried this product. Doesn't dry your skin out or leave dry patches like other products."

Customize your acne treatment to control and eliminate acne permanently

Before you put together and start using an acne treatment, you need to know what each acne product targets and how it will relate to your skin needs. Ireneo, a customer from Soledad, CA, says, "MenScience Acne Treatment hydrates my skin, minimizes pores, it's soothing, and works effectively. I needed an acne system to clear my skin since I been breaking out from stress."

MenScience Acne Treatment offers pharmaceutical-grade acne medicine so that you can get an acne-free complexion:

  • Daily Face Wash: This advanced liquid cleanser promotes a clear complexion by removing the bacteria, impurities and oily residues that cause acne.
  • Advanced Face Tonic: This gentle, yet high-potency wonder softens, smoothes and conditions for a radiantly clear complexion. Professional-grade Alpha Hydroxy Acids remove organic buildup while dissolving dead skin cells and pore-clogging, oily residues to renew and clarify.
  • Acne Therapy Lotion: This intensive acne medication cures recurring acne with dermatologist recommended Benzoyl Peroxide. Enriched with vitamins and skin restoring ingredients, the prescription-grade formula repairs and conditions acne stressed skin to help prevent scarring. Ultralight and oil-free, the Lotion absorbs quickly and invisibly without leaving a residue.
Distinguish between comedogenic vs non-comedogenic acne medicine

Comedogenic refers to ingredients or products that have a tendency to block pores and promote comedones (plural of comedo), or acne.

If you already suffer from oily or acne-prone skin, keep an eye out for these comedogenic ingredients when purchasing products:
  • Cocoa Butter
  • Pigments & Dyes (red in particular)
  • Coal Tar
  • Lanolin
  • Isopropyl Myristate
Consider acne products with dermatological ingredients

You have the option of using an acne product comparison chart to find acne products that target the causes of acne and keep acne blemishes under control with effective pharmaceutical-grade acne ingredients to diminish acne and prevent acne outbreaks. Consider ingredients like:
  • Glycolic Acid
  • Salicylic Acid
  • Alpha Hydroxy Acids
  • Benzoyl Peroxide
  • Allantoin
  • Urea
  • Green Tea
  • Vitamins B5, A, C and E
Where to search: Search engine are the best resource
You also have the option of maintaining a clear complexion at all times by using convenient prescription-grade acne pads anywhere oily residues start building up. Advanced Acne Pads help you diminish acne areas, healing and repairing acne-stressed skin.

Acne's Bestest Treatment - Acne Treatment System

I have a cousin, Tony, who suffered from severe acne since his early teenage years. He was always trying out the best acne creams doctor's would recommend him. I always remember how he was continuously changing his diet, the soap-bar he used to wash his face with, the towel to dry his face, and I know a lot people that had acne and would do the same. Often, our customers have trouble learning about real acne treatments and trusting them, and I think Tony's struggle is one that many people live with throughout their lives - trying acne cures. Are you looking for the bestest acne treatment?

Whether you believe it or not, the ingredients contained in real acne products set the difference and its effectiveness with others. By using prescription-grade acne ingredients, some acne treatments can eliminate acne permanently. (This is what our Acne Treatment System does, it gives you an acne-free complexion)

The best part of it all, is that you'll be able to make a smarter decision choosing acne products when you learn to recognize which are the most effective acne ingredients. When you savvy what different acne products do to your skin, you can create your own treatments - you-ll be able to combine different products confidently after evaluating them, and knowing their individual benefits. The following task explores how you can treat your acne blemishes with acne medications and clear your skin from acne on your findings.

Review Task: Reality check on the facts about acne

1. Find your old notepad and peaceful spot where you can be by yourself. Answer these questions:

  • Do you pop acne pimples thinking they will go away?
  • How often do you wash your face?
  • What type of environment do you work in?
  • Do the acne creams you use contain Benzoyl Peroxide, and is it prescription-grade?
  • Do you give your skin enough time (at least 4 weeks) to allow acne products to work their magic, or do you just get desperate after 5 days?
  • Do you think that just by working out and sweating those toxins your skin is getting cleansed?
  • Do you believe that acne is a bacteria?
  • Do you stress a lot about acne?

2. Compare your actual acne treatment with your vision of effective acne treatments. You'll probably be appalled to learn that you are treating your acne prone skin with acne products that don't have the right ingredients. You might keep hoping these will give you results soon, but most of the time they're just damaging your skin even more. Maybe your skin is nagging or irritated. You probably have been changing your diet, but haven't considered replacing your acne treatment system. Your face is the best test of your acne treatment products: If they haven't cleared your skin and eliminated acne after months of applying them, then shouldn't you consider changing them?

3. Becoming ingredient savvy. In the previous task, you stumbled on the kind of acne treatments you want. Now that you have compared your method to eliminate acne with an effective one, you need to get to work. Make up your mind to improve your acne treatment and clear your skin from acne by using simple steps.

An easy way to do this exercise is to compare acne product ingredients as you would compare those laptop features. Ask yourself, "What does Glycolic Acid do to my skin? What acne products contain this ingredient? Can Tea Tree Extract benefit my acne healing process? What are comedogenic products" You'll probably find yourself confused about so many terms. How do you choose the right acne products? Will any of them be harsh on your skin? When you start comparing all of the different products you will begin to develop your own acne treatment to eliminate acne permanently and have an acne-free complexion. Write down your acne ingredient picks, and find products that contain them.

4. Have trust, regulate. You have to regulate the frequency of use for your acne treatment in order to cure acne. Always use acne products with care and consideration. Write a list of recommendations from the acne product manufacturers and have it handy. Renew your protocol for clearing acne every month for at least three months. With regular rehearsal, treating your acne blemishes becomes easier and you'll start to feel more relaxed.

The greatest advantage of becoming savvy in what acne products really work is knowing how to apply them and switch them as your acne-stressed skin needs it. Apply what you have learned about acne products and acne ingredients to develop your own acne treatments. What reduces your acne breakouts? What keeps your pores clear? What clears your pimples? It can be anything from using the right daily cleanser, a soothing face tonic, or applying a dermatologist recommended acne lotion to repair and condition acne stressed skin to help prevent scarring. Write a list of your favorite "acne ingredients". Make sure the list includes comedogenic ingredients (Benzoyl Peroxide, Glycolic Acid - Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Salicylic Acid (BHA)) to reduce acne breakouts and treat acne effectively. Keep the list handy in case you need to review it.
