Cleveland Clinic defines acne as a common skin condition where the pores of your skin become blocked by hair, sebum (an oily substance), bacteria, and dead skin cells. Those blockages produce blackheads, whiteheads, nodules, and other types of pimples. 

According to Healthline, dermatologists typically categorize acne into the following:

  • Mild non-inflamatory acne which includes whiteheads and blackheads.
  • Moderate inflamatory acne includes papules and pustules.
  • Severe inflammatory acne includes nodules and cysts.

Noninflammatory acne can usually be cleared up with over-the-counter (OTC) products containing active ingredients like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide, or prescription-strength topical retinoids.


Cetaphil Facial Cleanser

This effective & gentle cleanser was formulated for dermatologists to keep normal to oily skin clean and healthy. It removes excess oils, dirt, makeup, and any pore-clogging residue and is also gentle enough for everyday use.

Rugby Acne Medication 10

Benzoyl peroxide works to treat and prevent acne by killing bacteria underneath the skin, as well as helping the pores shed dead skin cells and excess sebum (oil). The Rugby Acne medication contains 10% Benzoyl Peroxide & helps to clear up acne pimples.

Vitamin C Serum

According to Femina, Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that oily acne-prone skin can benefit from majorly. Vitamin C is necessary for healthy skin & helps treat inflammation associated with acne. Apart from consuming it in your diet, topical application can show off amazing results.

Vitamin E 

Vitamin E oil is absorbed into the skin quickly because it is fat-soluble. This leads to faster healing of acne and acne scars. It controls the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. It is NOT recommended for topical application on oily skin.

Differin Gel

As one of the top 20 acne treatment products on Healthline, the main acne-fighting ingredient in Differin is 0.1 percent adapalene, which was formerly only available with a prescription. Now, this prescription-strength retinoid is available in an OTC product.

Acne Treatment

Salicylic Acid is one of the most common treatments for acne. Medical news today states salicylic acid works to treat acne by unclogging blocked pores. It does this by breaking down the bonds between dead skin cells so that they can release from the pore more easily, and breaking down oils, such as sebum.

Rose Water

AcneStar describes Rosewater as an effective anti-acne remedy. It can effectively reduce the symptoms of acne breakouts while providing you with clear and glowing skin. Rosewater soothes the skin, removes excess oil, & maintains the skin’s pH balance. 


For many individuals suffering from acne, the condition not only affects their appearance but their emotional health as well. It can lead to a lack of confidence, depression, or more. With the right products and healthcare professional, acne problems can be resolved with time. Getting rid of acne typically involved using multiple products & certain lifestyle changes.
