Be kind to your skin: Treating adult acne can be a challenge. The first step is to be kind to your skin and clean it with a gentle cleanser. Harsh scrubbing and strong soaps can make acne worse. The second step is to try the over the counter treatments available. Consult with your doctor to see which ones are right for you. The last step is to avoid picking at your acne as this can lead to scarring and inflammation.

See your doc: Aside a multitude of over the counter preparations you can try, you may want to see your doc or schedule a consult with a HealthTap doc for prescription strength medications to help. Otherwise benzoyl peroxide over the counter is initial drug of choice, mild soap and a good diet with adequate hydration.
