Controlling Oily Skin and Acne
Indeed many products used to clear or control acne are irritating, cause intense dryness or itching, stinging, burning or peeling! Initial skin reactions , however, do indicate that skin is responding to a repair process. Certain regimens are designed to eliminate a lot of those adverse effects and still gain the optimal results. Consulting a provider that is passionate about treating acne and who carries an up-to-date medical skin product line ( such as ZO Skin Health Care) will be a good place to start to develop a treatment plan that will combine products, peels or laser treatments to control the active acne and the residual adverse effects.

Non-prescription treatment options are limited. If you are getting irritated, make sure that you are not scrubbing too much and that you are cleansing and hydrating with basic, non-irritating products.
