3 Reasons You Shouldn’t Try to Fight Acne on Your Own

Fighting acne isn’t easy, but it can be harder if you are trying to do it alone.

When you first see the signs of a pimple popping up on your face or neck you probably immediately reach for the nearest acne-fighting tools that you can get your hands on. For millions of people that means something you found on the shelf of a drugstore, a local big-box store, or online.

Unfortunately there is no guarantee that your skincare routine is actually going to work to get rid of your acne. Instead, you are paying money for products and going through the motions while still seeing that frustrating acne on your face, neck, or body. If that sounds like you, it might be time to enlist the help of a professional in treating your acne. Here are three reasons you shouldn’t be fighting this on your own.

1: Everyone’s Skin is Different

The skincare products you find on the shelf of a local big-box store or online are usually formulated for a mass market. That means they are not specific to your needs. Everyone has different skin, which means treating acne requires a specialized regimen that has:

  • The right ingredients
  • In the right products
  • Used in the right order

When you are just winging it buying things from the drugstore or online, you may not be helping your acne at all. You may even be doing things that could make acne worse. Working with a skincare professional ensures that you get exactly the right products based on your skin and your acne-fighting needs.

2: Skincare and Acne Products Can be Confusing

Anyone who has spent a few minutes online or standing in a skincare aisle knows that there are a lot of products. Thousands to choose from, in fact. Each one has marketing claims about being the best thing for to fight acne and clear up skin, but without advanced knowledge of skincare ingredients it’s hard to know which products you can trust.

When you work with a professional to get a skincare and acne treatment regimen, you get knowledge and expertise of all the ingredients and tools available to design a routine that will work.

3: You Need the Best Products to Address Your Acne Issues

The products you can buy at the store—and some that you can buy online—don’t always have the highest quality ingredients. Some companies cut corners or use fillers and cheap ingredients to make their products more affordable. A skincare professional can help you sort through the products that won’t work to recommend the ones with the highest quality ingredients to be most effective.
