The Best Thing You Can Do for Your Acne

Do you want to know the absolute best thing you can do for your acne? There is one thing that you can do that will ensure you get the best results possible, no matter what treatment you're using.

Ready for me to let you in on this secret?

OK, here it is: use your treatments consistently, every day, without skipping days.  Maybe that seems too simple, but it works.

Today's treatment tip: It doesn't matter which acne medication you're using, whether it's over-the-counter or prescription, topical or oral. In order for them to really work, you need to be extremely regular with your usage.

Try to use them at the same time every day. Don't skip days. And don't wait until you're completely out before getting your prescription filled.

When you miss a dose of your medication, or you don't apply your treatment lotions when you should, it allows acne to gain a foothold. Even if you just skip your treatments one day a week, assuming that you use them twice daily, it adds up to over 100 missed treatments a year. Now think if you skip treatment just twice per week -- it really adds up!

And, let's face it, acne is tough enough to clear up anyway. Let's not allow it to gain traction.

It may seem like a tiny thing, but using your treatments as consistently as possible will pay off big in the long run.

These articles will help you get better results from your treatments, too:
