It is important to do some research before buying, as each treatment has its own effectiveness and risk of side-effects. Particular factors to take into account include your skin type and the affected area of your skin.
Acne creams have proven to be effective for people with normal or oily skin who are looking for general treatments. Acne creams can be used easily over a sizeable area of skin and provide some moisture while attacking acne. However, acne creams are usually not as quick or effective as exfoliating scrubs or spot treatment gels.
If your skin type is normal to oily and the area of affected skin is medium sized, acne creams may be the right choice for you. For severe acne or excessively dry skin, other treatment options may work best.
