The truth about acne is, while it poses some complexities, it’s absolutely possible to improve this condition. To do so, you’ll need to understand the different types of acne, and have an individualized treatment plan. Not every acne treatment or product works the same for, or on, everybody, so be patient.
In addition, don’t overdo, too much of a good thing may worsen your condition! Over-drying your skin no matter how oily it is, will only lead to increased oil production. Likewise, over exfoliating skin compromises the skin’s barrier, allowing bacteria in and aggravating acne. The idea is to treat your specific type of acne while keeping your skin healthy and balanced.
