Let me start off by saying that not all acne treatments are the same. There are hundreds of different products containing hundreds of different ingredients. When looking at treating acne, you have to see what treatments are comprised of the best ingredients. Forget about anything chemically based, as chemicals do more harm than good and can cause painful irritation and sometimes severe allergic reactions. If you want to treat acne, use the best all natural ingredients and save yourself the trouble.

Resveratrol is an anti oxidant found in grape skin that has tremendous health benefits. It is the compound that make red wine good to drink (in moderation, of course). When used with other all natural ingredients in an acne treatment it blows the big name acne treatments (you know who you are) out of the water. Benzoyl Peroxide is the active main ingredient in many acne treatments and can lead to redness, inflammation, and swelling. Resveratrol has been proven in a study done by Oxford University study to kill acne causing bacteria just as good if not better than Benzoyl and without any harsh side effects.

Glycolic acid is a gentle ingredient that removes old dead skin cells and helps kill bacteria. It also helps promote new, fresh, skin growth as well as giving the skin a lustrous appearance. Tangerine oil is another key ingredient to look for as it is a natural antiseptic and aids in exfoliation and skin cell regeneration.

Aloe Vera, Shea Butter, Niacinimide are other all natural ingredients help to soothe the skin and calm inflammation which is one of the main causes of acne breakouts.

When looking for a treatment to help get rid of your acne, stick to using only the finest organic ingredients. Find out as much as you can about a specific product. Talk to a dermatologist or someone you know who may have used it, then research all of the ingredients on the internet. Read customer reviews, even go as far as writing to the company. You can never know enough about anything, especially when it comes to what's going on your skin.
