Best acne medications following the recommendations and reviews of people


This article will deal with the best acne medications, which have worked for a number of people, and that’s why they have recommended these products and I have gathered their recommendations through my research. (To have some basic understanding of acne please read my Tips on Acne article.)

The lists are in no particular order. Bear in mind that a solution which worked for someone may not work for you because each person is unique in their “bio-condition”, however, I have selected through my research solutions which have worked for most people or which have gotten the highest stars in reviews.

Have a look at the list and don’t forget that for anything that you think is serious you need go to your dermatologist. Do not delay because usually in medicine time works against you.
