9 Anti-Acne Treatment Kits For Every Budget
Treating acne is as easy as 1-2-3.
If you get an occasional blemish, a spot treatment is probably all you need to keep your skin clear. But if acne is a chronic problem, occurs either monthly before your period or even more frequently then that, a specialized skincare regimen may be in order. According to Dr. Jeannette Graf, dermatologist and Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, “The advantage of using a kit is that you have a complete regimen and the ability to have different treatment ingredients in one package.”
Today’s acne treatment kits can help get your acne under control for good. They’ll treat blemishes as they appear and will prevent new ones from forming. To achieve this goal, Dr. Graf recommends looking for products that contain salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide, because they effectively combat acne.
