Hello Dear. Treatment at home can help reduce acne flare-ups.
•     Wash your face (or other affected skin) gently one or two times a day.
•     Do not squeeze pimples, because that often leads to infections, worse acne, and scars.
•     Use a moisturizer to keep your skin from drying out. Choose one that says "noncomedogenic" on the label.
•     Use over-the-counter medicated creams, soaps, lotions, and gels to treat your acne. Always read the label carefully to make sure you are using the product correctly.
Examples of some over-the-counter products used to treat acne include:
•     Benzoyl peroxide (such as Brevoxyl or Triaz), which unplugs pores.
•     Alpha hydroxy acid, which dries up blemishes and causes the top skin layer to peel. You'll find alpha hydroxy acid in some moisturizers, cleansers, eye creams, and sunscreens.
•     Salicylic acid (such as Propa pH or Stridex), which dries up blemishes and causes the top skin layer to peel.
•     Tea tree oil, which kills bacteria. You'll find tea tree oil in some gels, creams, and oils.
