Acne is a common skin ailment among many people that can be treated easily if you start treatment as early as possible. There are many causes for acne and hormonal imbalance is one of them.

There are many products to control hormonal imbalances. But these hormonal medications also have side effects such as low blood pressure and dizziness. A better option is to get treatment for your acne, not for the hormonal imbalances. Below is a list of acne treatment creams, which are very easy to use and are extremely effective.

We all have different skin types and skin issues so it’s important to know what is going on with your skin before trying to treat it. A dermatologist can help you determine this if you are able to go to one. Is your skin oily, dry, combination? Are you battling blackheads, whiteheads, large pores, cystic acne?

● Benzoyl peroxide is one of the best topical acne creams for acne treatment. It should be applied at night after cleansing and moisturizing the skin. It dries out and kills acne-causing bacteria and is very effective at eliminating blackheads. Benzoyl peroxide can bleach bath towels and bed sheets so make sure to use white colors only! Your skin is much more sensitive to the sun when using this treatment so avoid being in the sun too long. If you are in the sun, wear sunscreen with SPF to minimize irritation to the skin. It can dry your skin out so make sure to use an oil-free moisturizer morning and night.

● Topical Retinoid Cream comes in both cream and gel form. It works by reducing the production of sebum, which is the oily secretion that comes from the sebaceous glands. This treatment is best utilized when applied once a night after cleansing and moisturizing. It is not safe for women who are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant. Most common side effects of topical retinoid are mild irritation and stinging of the skin.

Salicylic Acid Cream will help clear skin by killing acne-causing bacteria that forms on and in the pores of the skin. This can be used every day until the affected areas are cleared of pimples. It can dry out your skin so make sure to apply an oil-free moisturizer morning and night to keep skin hydrated.

For severe acne, it is best to consult with your dermatologist. Since acne treatment depends on what your skin type is and what kind of acne you’re dealing with, it is best to get advice from an expert in skin.
