Acne treatment no Rx: Acne can be prevented or minimized by using a gentle cleanser twice daily, over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid products followed by a noncomedogenic moisturizer such as Cetaphil, Ceravue or similar. A 'clean' diet of whole grains, vegetables and fruits, devoid of fast or prepackaged food, can help your skin and overall health.
