I'd do anything to get rid of this acne!

Sound familiar? Well if so, you're not alone. In fact, millions of people worldwide do battle with acne every single day. And whether you have mild to moderate acne every once in awhile or you're constantly fighting severe acne outbreaks, you can get to the point where it just seems like nothing is going to help get rid of this embarrassing, yet common skin problem.

No one has been able to determine a single cause of acne. In fact, there are likely several factors that contribute to acne development. Some of the factors that can lead to acne forming or make it harder to get rid of include environmental factors, hormones, and reaction to cosmetics. In addition, poor diet can impact acne development.

The good news is that research has shown that most acne medications available today can treat 9 out of 10 cases of acne. Other, more drastic measures might need to be taken for severe cases of acne but for most of us, it's clear that the acne medications available are at least worth trying and, most likely, will produce some favorable results.

Acne medications come in three broad categories, either traditional, homeopathic, or herbal.

Traditional acne medications are the type you're probably most familiar with, the medications lining the shelves of your local pharmacy or that your doctor might prescribe.

Homeopathic acne remedies use herbs and other natural materials to help cure acne. However, these must be obtained from a licensed homeopathic specialist as opposed to simply buying them like you can with over-the-counter medications. Your specialist can help determine the cause of your acne and which remedies will work best in your situation.

Herbal remedies also rely on herbs that can be mixed together to create acne-fighting treatments. Certain herbs, when mixed together, not only have acne-fighting properties but also help detoxify the skin and reduce inflammation. Typically, you won't need to rely on a specialist to obtain these ingredients, though it's always a good idea to check with your doctor or other medical professional before starting any type of treatment, even if it's all natural.

More than likely, your regimen for acne treatment will develop over time as you determine which remedies work best for you. In addition, keep in mind that most likely, it will consist of a combination of two or three of these broad categories of medications. And finally, be patient, since no acne remedy produces immediate results.

FACT: Acne affects 90% of people worldwide. Why are some people able to stop acne dead in its tracks while others continue to suffer? Discover how you can quickly and easily find remedies for acne outbreaks and finally have clear, smooth, acne-free skin by visiting
