Nobody nowadays needs to have bad acne -- life's hard enough without it. Good luck. ...Read more

What skin care product for acne works best and are easily available in retailers?

Many: I like benzoyl peroxide 2 x daily as it kills bacteria in the skin. Add a salycilic acid wash and a non-comedogenic moisturizer and you have a good start.
