Multiple Ways: Treating acne requires antibacterial cleansers, and they usually contain salicylic acid. Benzoyl peroxide can be very effective for spot treatments. Mechanical exfoliation is useful to scrub away the outer layer of your skin which can become dull and possibly result in clogged pores. Chemical exfoliation (chemical peeling) is important in your initial acne regimen to prime your skin for home care.
