Treating acne is no different. Home care compliance (a.k.a. the hard work) is the number one factor in getting and staying clear. I find that the those who are compliant and patient achieve the best results. Those who want immediate results usually struggle and some eventually fail at obtaining clear skin. Having struggled to control my acne for many , many years, I understand the dedication that is required to get results. Once you make that commitment to yourself to put in the work, you will be so glad you did!
Treating acne takes determination, dedication and patience. There is no miracle cure and you can't expect overnight result. Understanding what is occurring within your skin and communication with your acne specialist are two key components to clearing your acne. Changing your regimen on your own usually leads to disappointment. Having an acne specialist on your team can help you stick with your regimen and get you through the rough times.
Find an acne specialist, educate yourself by asking questions and follow the regimen given to you. You can have acne free skin!
