If you’re just starting to get breakouts or you have really mild acne with a few blemishes here and there, the over-the-counter (OTC), do-it-yourself route may be just the ticket for you. Look in the mirror. If you see a few blackheads and whiteheads or a few pimples, you can probably find ways to treat them on your own.
You can find many acne products waiting for you at your local drugstores and cosmetic counters. You can do many things to improve the appearance of your skin without a prescription if you’re a teenager just starting to get acne. Shelves are also stocked with products specifically geared toward adult women.
You can also follow some of the skin-care tips and further ideas to help you, like the face-washing advice under the tips for healthy skin or the list of things you should never do to your skin. Although going to a doctor generally costs more than buying a cream at your local drugstore, you’ll likely save money in the long run and get better results than you’ll get by running through the gamut of OTC acne products.
