Even in ancient Rome were invented by the first way to combat acne, but since the twentieth century, with the rapid development of cosmetology treatment of acne, or acne, improving rapidly. When in the thirties of the twentieth century, for example, to treat acne assumed by laxatives, already in the fifties in the fight against acne including antibiotics. And now to get rid of acne can be as taking special drugs and chemical peeling.
Acne: the result of poor lifestyle choices?
Before talking about treatment of acne, it should be noted that the acne, as well as any other problem with the skin - this is, in most cases, the result of poor lifestyle: lack of skin care, poor nutrition. As a rule, even experienced dermatologists, prescribing a course of treatment, recommend their patients to make certain changes in lifestyle. In fact, they may be considered as one additional way to treat acne. This normalization of power, following a balanced diet and proper skin care - in particular, regular washing with antibacterial soap or a mild gel cleanser, cleansing, non-greasy cream too, which can cause clogging of pores. An obligatory condition for the treatment of acne - use nekomedogennoy decorative cosmetics and skincare. But ideally, the period of treatment of acne makeup in general is better to refuse.
Ways to treat acne
Choosing a treatment for acne depends primarily on the severity of the disease. In the most mild forms of acne medication taken to treat only for external use - medicinal ointments, which contain special ingredients. In the most severe forms of an integrated approach - the preparations for external use in combination with antibiotics consumed. In addition, there are a number of additional measures to combat acne - including hormone therapy, phototherapy, at last, chemical peels.

The main ingredient in the majority of medicinal ointments designed to deal with milder forms of acne - this is benzoyl peroxide, an antibacterial agent that has been successfully used in treating various skin diseases for more than two decades. Benzoyl peroxide has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, so are suitable for different types of acne.
Along with benzoyl peroxide for acne treatment using drugs with retinoids - derivatives of vitamin A. As a rule, these creams and ointments are used in case of intolerance benzoyl peroxide. Retinoids not only have anti-inflammatory effects, but also normalizes the sebaceous glands, reducing sebum production. Retinoid analogue - azelaic acid, which also has antibacterial properties, but the sebaceous glands are not affected.

Most external devices used for the treatment of acne, there is one drawback - namely, to achieve optimal results, requires a sufficiently long period of time (up to three months). In addition, the active ingredients (and in particular retinoic acid) may cause irritation, increased dryness of the skin, a number of other side effects.

Much more effective in treating acne complex treatment program - the simultaneous use of external agents and antibiotics. In more severe forms of acne are prescribed antibiotics of tetracycline group, possessing anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. And in extreme cases, prolonged courses of treatment assigned (up to three months or more) of antibiotics and drugs for external use.
