FIND OUT THE
BEST ACNE TREATMENTS

It is approximated that 85 percent
of Australians will suffer from acne in their lifetime. Finding an effective acne treatment can be difficult leaving many to rely on makeup products to cover blemished skin.

This introduces a new issue as certain makeup products contain ingredients that worsen acne by clogging pores, increasing sebum production, and further inflaming pimple-causing bacteria.

If you want an acne treatment plan that works, incorporate products with proven ingredients for clearer skin long-term.

WHAT CAUSES ACNE?
As explained by Scientific Communications Manager at La Roche- Posay, Rachel McAdam, “Acne occurs when a hair follicle becomes clogged with excess sebum and dead skin cells.”

Acne can manifest as a whitehead, a blackhead, or a deeper cyst. Typically, it occurs on the face, neck, back, and shoulders as these locations present a higher concentration of sebaceous glands.

BEST WAY TO TREAT ACNE?
The best acne treatment can depend on
the individual. When seeking the best acne products, look for ingredients such as salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid) and niacinamide (vitamin B3) to decongest and repair the skin.

Cleansing morning and night is essential. A gentle exfoliation a few times a week will help clear pores and reduce marks, while a non-irritating moisturiser will work to soothe and reduce inflammation.

BEST PRODUCTS FOR PIMPLES?
For mild to severe acne La Roche-Posay E aclar Duo (+) Anti-Acne Moisturiser is an anti-blemish moisturiser proven to treat acne, scarring, redness, and over-production of sebum. It contains salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid proven to dissolve pore-clogging oil and bacteria. It also contains procerad, niacinamide and zinc to reduce bacteria, brighten, soothe, and reduce scarring and redness.

In terms of the best face wash for pimples, Effaclar Foaming Gel Cleanser ticks all the boxes: It’s soap-free, non-comedogenic, and soothes thanks to the addition of La Roche-Posay’s signature ingredient, Thermal Spring Water. It cleanses thoroughly, and when paired with the Effaclar Duo (+) is an extremely effective acne treatment routine.
