Health Tip: Can't Clear Your Acne?
Here's what you can do

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- If you're having little success in clearing your acne, experts say you shouldn't give up hope.

The American Academy of Dermatology suggests:

  • If you're trying a new treatment, give it time to work before you try something else. You should see some improvement in four-to-six weeks.
  • Always follow the instructions on any medication or skin care product.
  • Don't scrub or pick at your skin. Avoid touching it repeatedly.
  • Use products labeled "oil-free," "non-comedogenic" or "non-acnegenic" that shouldn't clog pores.
  • Use acne medication on any area prone to a breakout, not just on active blemishes.
  • Regularly wash pillowcases, hats and anything that touches your face.
