Acne Products Proven Not to Work

Teens and adults with acne are always on the lookout for the newest acne products in the hopes of finding the one magical formula that really works. Some people continue to purchase the same products over time, in spite of never getting real results that last. Not only are some of the most popular products on the market ineffective, but they can even be harmful to your skin or your overall health, with extended use. Even when using a 100% natural acne medicine, there is a risk of interacting with other medications or treatments, or of simply irritating your skin to make it worse.
There are thousands of acne products on the market, making it difficult for anyone to choose the best product for their needs. The extended period of time some products have been on the market gives us the data we need to determine they simply are not effective. Some of the products and natural treatments used for acne in the past and today that do not work include:

  • Low-Fat Diet
  • Rubbing Skin with a Lemon
  • Benzoyl Peroxide
  • Salicylic Acid
  • Antibiotics
  • Vitamins and Supplements
  • Alcohol
  • Laser Treatment or Light Therapy

Although some of these acne products may enhance results as part of an acne treatment plan, none of them work alone to effectively combat acne. Although acne is the result of dead skin cells and bacteria being trapped in the skin’s pores, the root cause of this condition is the over-production of sebum, the oil in the skin.
Harsh products that contain alcohols can over-dry skin and exacerbate the condition. While benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid can provide short-term solutions by getting rid of the debris in pores, it doesn’t stop the over-production of oils, so the skin becomes blemished again. The inability to get to the heart of the acne is the sole reason these products don’t offer long-term results. Their ability to provide temporary improvements to the skin is the reason that people keep buying them anyway. Clearogen is the perfect combination of known acne-fighting ingredients, and natural acne medicine, to stop acne from occurring and provide lasting results.
