I would go to a dermatologist. I tried proactive, but it was too harsh for my face. A dermatologist will match the right routine to fit your skin type and tolerance to certain chemicals. I went and after a few trials to test my skin with different topical creams and medication my skin is looking much better.
The most important part of your acne treatment is understanding what skin type you are and the most effective acne treatment to use on it. If you have oily skin, you would not want to use cleansing products, moisturizing products, or cosmetics that contain oil.
You should buy products that are oil-free. On the other hand, if you have dry skin, you would not want to use the oil-free products because your skin could use a little extra oil.
Both oily and dry skin need to be moisturized daily. Just because skin has extra oil does not mean it doesn’t need moisturizer. Plenty of good oil-free moisturizers are available to use on oily skin. Dry skin has its own specific problems and should be moisturized with a product made especially for dry skin.
Before you understand how to develop the proper acne care skin treatment for your skin, you should try to understand what is causing the acne in the first place.
