At various times in our lives, most of us are going to get pimples. These may be isolated breakouts or full-scale warzones on the face. Either way, you're going to want to treat them effectively, so follow our checklist of to-do items.

1. Cleanse gently.  Everybody knows clear skin comes from clean skin, but you can take washing too far.  Don't excessively strip your skin of oils, because dry skin can also cause breakouts. Use a gentle product such as La Roche Posay Physiological Gel Cleanser or [Link Removed]can improve the texture of your skin in myriad ways, including resurfacing blemish-prone skin through exfoliation.
5. Spot treatments, such as Effaclar AI and Effaclar Duo, can clear up isolated trouble spots.
Whatever approach you take to clearing up your skin, give it time. Don't be discouraged if it takes at least two weeks to notice an improvement. Because of the way acne treatments work on your skin, you can even expect for skin to look a little worse for the first few days while the damaged and toxic cells are purged and fresher skin comes to the surface. Continue to be gentle, persist with your chosen treatment, and don't forget a good moisturizer and sunscreen.
