Best Acnes Treatmet available

I was fortunate enough to not have had an acne problem as a teen However; into my late 30's I started to develop blackheads around my cheekbones. I tried so many products I can't even remember them all. That's probably because none of them were effective.
I tried the Menscience Acne Treatment Pads after being very happy with their other products. This is the most effective product I have found. Within a week of use, my blackheads were disappearing or shrinking. After two weeks, 90 percent are completely gone. I did notice some minor drying, but moisturizer took care of that very quickly.
I cannot recommend this product highly enough!
After one order.

I have only used this product one time. I found that, in my case, there just isn't enough. I have acute adult "backne" so I have a larger area to cover and it takes four to six pads to cleanse the area, so fifty pads doesn't last me but a week when applying twice a day. I like the abrasiveness of the pads, it feels like they are just rough enough to take off the dead skin, but not irratate the area. They make my skin feel very clean and sterile if you can imagine that. They smell fantastic.
I would buy this product again and again

An easy everyday habit to healthy looking guy's skin, no creams or lotions or smelly fruity cover-ups, just clean looking and feeling skin in thirty seconds a morning, or night.
• Diminishes redness and inflammation associated with acne
• Helps heal and repair acne-stressed skin
How to Use :
Cleanse skin thoroughly.
Apply pad to affected area 1-3 times daily.
Because initial overdrying may occur, start with 1 application daily, then gradually increase to 2 or 3 times daily if needed or as directed by doctor.
Additional Tips :
• If dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day. If going outside, allow product to dry, then apply TiO2 Sunblock SPF 30.
How often should I use the Advanced Acne Pads?
Apply Advanced Acne Pads once daily. Gradually increase usage to 2 or 3 times a day as needed.
Will the product cause irritation?
Because of the high concentration of Glycolic and Salicylic Acids, it may take some time for skin to get used to the treatment. Begin with 1 application daily, then gradually increase to 2 - 3 times daily as needed. Once skin has become accustomed to the treatment, irritation, redness or dryness usually disappears.
Why is Salicylic Acid an effective ingredient in acne treatment?
Salicylic Acid helps prevent clogged pores by gently exfoliating oily residues and dead skin cells from the surface. By removing this organic debris, new cells are revealed and pores are kept free of acne-causing bacteria. Salicylic Acid also helps smooth skin and refines skin texture.
What do you recommend for acne-prone skin?
Keep skin clean by washing with Daily Face Wash twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. Apply Advanced Acne Pads to eliminate blemishes and blackheads and clear pores. Apply Acne Spot Repair directly to blemishes to diminish them in 24 hours. Only use products that are non-irritating and noncomedogenic. Do not pick at or pop blemishes, and twice a week, use Microfine Face Scrub to exfoliate skin and unclog pores.
Does tanning clear up acne?
No, it does not. When you tan, dead cells build up on your skin’s surface. This can often cause pores to seem smaller and the surface to appear smoother. Tanning masks redness caused by acne, but once the tan disappears acne will become apparent once again. Exposure to the sun can also darken acne scars and marks, so protect skin regularly by using TiO2 Sunblock SPF 30 when you go outside.
Is acne caused by eating greasy foods?
Contrary to popular belief, there is very little scientific evidence to back up this claim. However, you should aim to eat a balanced diet full of vitamins from fruits and vegetables, and drink plenty of water for overall well-being.
