The first step to treating acne spots is to start with a good skin care regiment to help prevent acne from happening in the first place. The regiment consists of cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing, and protecting (which is the sun protection factor). Protecting is very important because the sun is very strong and can add to build up and make acne worse. To treat specific acne spots a glycolic or salicylic serum is recommended. These can be purchased from a beauty store or professional that can help you determine which product is right for you. The host chooses to use spot treatments immediately after cleansing, letting it set in for a few minutes, then applying moisturizer.
