If you think acne is a nuisance, you need to do more than just wipe it away.
Here are six steps to minimize it and reduce the chance of getting it again.

In a study published last month in the Journal of Cosmetic Science, researchers at the University of Alberta found that two types of ingredients — the hydroxy acids keratin and titanium dioxide — were effective in treating acne in women.
They found that women with mild acne could get relief by using either of the two ingredients alone.
“The combination of these two ingredients could be used to effectively manage acne and reduce inflammation,” lead author Dr. Laura McEwan told CBC News.
“They were able to do that in an oral form.”
In fact, the authors of the study say that a third ingredient, glycolic acid, can be used on its own to help with the symptoms.
The hydroxy acid can be found in a wide range of products, but researchers say that it’s especially important for people with dry skin.
It can be added to soaps, lotions, facial scrubs and soaps and cleansers to help reduce the appearance of dryness, and to help the skin heal.
“I think this is something that is very important for all women,” said McEwen, who’s also a researcher in dermatology at the Centre for Bioethical Research at the Faculty of Health Sciences at the Royal Military College of Canada.
“Women with dry and sensitive skin may be particularly sensitive to the hydroXY acids and this is why they are being able to take advantage of these ingredients.”
The study found that the products did not cause irritation to the skin and did not have the potential to worsen acne.
It’s a promising step for people trying to get relief from acne, which is a common side effect of the treatment.
But the researchers say more research is needed to confirm the efficacy of the products.
For now, the products may be effective for people who suffer from mild acne, although it’s not clear if they will work for everyone.
“There are a lot of different things that can cause acne,” McEwan said.
“It’s not necessarily just dryness.
It could be a reaction to some products that are used.
It also could be because the product was not formulated for acne or it was not designed with a specific type of skin.”
The products were also tested on mice.
While they weren’t able to show any differences between the products in terms of their ability to treat acne, they did find that the hydro-sorbent products were able do more for the skin’s cells than the hydrooxy acids.
McEwan said that she and her team are still studying how hydroxy-sulfuric acid can affect the skin, but that they’re confident that the results are promising.
“The results show that hydroxy sulfuric acids are very good at repairing the cells,” McElwan told CBC.
“If you’re using hydroxy sulphuric-acid products on your skin, you’re getting a very strong protection against the damage that can occur from sebum, which can cause the eruption.”
McEwen says that she’s also looking forward to trying out the hydrozy-sodium-sulphuric oxide.
That is an alternative to hydroxy azide, which has been used for centuries.
“It’s a really interesting idea, it’s very new and there are a number of things that are going to be done in the future,” McEllan said, noting that hydro- and sulfur-salt solutions have been around for centuries and are used for thousands of years.
“Hydroxy sulfur, as the name suggests, is a sulphur compound, which means that it is very stable.
It is also relatively inexpensive.”
