What are the different acne creams?

Acne creams are over-the-counter creams that supplement

anti-acne medicinal treatment

with suitable active ingredients. A mattifying treatment is suitable for people with oily skin and dilated pores. A comprehensive treatment is for acne-prone skin with blackheads, whiteheads and acne spots. When spots are red and inflamed, the treatment must also help to limit residual marks. Creams for adult acne fight against imperfections as well as against marks, spots and wrinkles. Finally, some oral medication treatments irritate and dry out the skin, which must be soothed and hydrated with a compensatory cream.

Many people want an acne healing cream or acne spot cream. Regular application of an acne cream limits the appearance of scars and spots. However, if scars or spots have already formed, you are better off seeing a dermatologist.

How do you apply an anti-acne cream?

Always apply acne cream to clean, dry skin.

Contrary to popular belief, acne creams are not applied spot by spot, unless it is an "anti-spot" stick specifically formulated to locally dry out the spot and accelerate its disappearance. Acne creams are applied to the entire face as if they were an acne day cream, avoiding the eye contour area.

Acne creams have light, non-greasy, non-comedogenic textures and are often an excellent base for makeup.
