hi Sibu..thanks for your query
Acne can be of various types like comedones( blackhead, whiteheads), papules,pustules,cysts and nodules.What treatment you need, depends on the kind of lesions you have .Also , since manifestations change, you need to be under the supervision of a dermatologist for effective treatments.There is no single product that will work on all forms and be always effective.SO, I would advise you to first visit a dermatologist and then start the treatment.This prevents scarring which is a very common outcome of acne for most people.You may also follow these steps:
1)Use Salicylic 2% based gel twice daily to wash your face .Do not over wash your face ; if you do o , the body starts producing more oil to compensate the loss of poi due to cleansing.So restrict washing to 2-3 times a day maximum.
2) Use only non comedogenic preparations on your face.Like sunscreen and moisturizers should be gel based and from a good brand which mentions 'non-comedogenic' in its packaging
3)You can go ahead with a few sessions of Salicylic peels once in 15 days and get your comedones extracted regularly with a qualified dermatologist to reduce pimples further.
Hope this is helpful..take care!
