When people ask about the best acne treatment, many will name 3 step systems with a cleanser, toner, and lotion. Or maybe someone may say using a certain facial wash works great for them. Everyone is different, so everyone's acne is different. Some may be treated with a simple facial wash, while some may take much more.
However, not one of those over-the-counter products is the best acne treatment. First off, they only treat existing acne, they do not prevent more acne from breaking out. Second, your skin will become immune to them after using them repeatedly, which you have to do in order for it to clear your acne. After using the product over and over, you will notice it no longer treats your acne.
In order the prevent your acne from breaking out again, you first understand what causes acne in the first place. During the teenage years (puberty) and pregnancy, hormones levels rise causing your oil glands to become overactive. When oil and dead skin mix and clog the pores in the skin, an infection occurs known as acne. Another main cause of acne is due to the chemicals in foods today. Some of the chemicals and toxins cannot be broken down in the body. Since our skin is the largest organ of the body, much of these toxins are released through the skin, resulting in acne.
The best acne treatment is one which prevents acne (which is why over-the-counter products are not the best acne treatment). By preventing acne before it starts, you can permanently cure yourself of acne. A simple tip to help release the toxins in your body is by drinking plenty of water daily.
