Some often pop, squeeze and pick zits and believe that it’s the fastest and best acne treatment. But actually, it’s a big no-no because these actions tend to make acne worse. They cause permanent scars and may greatly irritate the skin making the condition all the more unsightly. There are so many creams, pills, soaps, and other mixtures that were proven to be effective as they are widely prescribed by skin care physicians. For treating acne, dermatologists recommend products that contain benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid.
