Quick guide to the best products for treating acne
My best friend suffered from acne for a very long time and it really made me sad. Thankfully, those were times of hormonal acne, and looks like they and receding steadily. Acne, at least the stubborn ones will leave their marks. There are several kinds of acne that one might encounter- Whiteheads, clogged pores, dull skin, hyper-pigmentation, and cystic acne. The number of products available for any of these across brands is mind boggling and I can only imagine your confusion. Acne is usually caused due to three main reasons- hygiene, genetics and hormonal issues. Yes, it is true that you need to find and use specific products for your specific acne type, but how to know what to use? When it comes to acne, using just anything will not just break your bank but will probably end up causing more skin irritation. As consumers, we might never know what product to commit to that will suit your best. So, I found out a list of 10 best products for treating acne hoping it will soothe your acne troubles and also be products you can swear by.
(I will try to add the best products for treating acne available in India but some brands are really nice and you can try getting them from abroad.)
