Back to Basics for Acne Control

Whether an adolescent suffering from acne or an adult plagued with pesky pop-ups, acne is still the number one diagnosis for dermatological visits. But there are ways to lessen the problem.

At home Remedies:

  • Use a warm compress a few times a day on the breakout to open it up. Once open, it should go away in 24 hours.
  • Don’t use your dirty fingernails to pop pimples. Use rubbing alcohol to prevent bacteria from causing further infection.
  • Look for active ingredients such as salicylic acids, benzoyl peroxide, or retinol.
  • If you run out of medication, a small amount of tea tree oil, Neosporin can help.
