Choosing the best skin care products

When there are so many products claiming to fix acne, it can be hard to know what’s best for your skin. Using the right skin care products can make a big difference in your acne management but it’s important to base your decision on credible advice rather than the skin of a well-paid, photo-shopped model or celebrity.

Acne is a medical condition so your pharmacist, general practitioner (GP) or dermatologist are good people to speak to for guidance in choosing the right skin care products to help control your acne and avoid treatment related problems. In the meantime, here are a few general tips.
