Powderma Acne Treatment is a dual action anti-microbial powder that regulates oil production and destroys acne causing bacteria. For the best results, apply Powderma once daily in the morning or evening before bed after you have cleansed your skin with soap and water. Simply blend the acne treatment into your skin with your hands or with your microfiber body applicator if you suffer from back acne. Your skin will nautrally absorb the acne treatment powder in just a few minutes, leaving your skin soft and smooth.
Acne Treatment Tips from WebMD
- Skin takes time to heal. In some cases, your skin may experience minor irritation the first couple weeks of treatment, says Diane S. Bertson, MD, FAAD, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Weill Medical College of Cornell University. Existing acne can take up to two weeks to appear, so any activity you see in that time frame after starting an acne treatment is your skin's response to combating an existing blemish. "It's not an infection, it's an inflammation that can get worse before it gets better," says Dr. Berson. Particularly, if you have moderate to severe acne, the key is to be patient.
- Over treating your skin with harsh cleansers, alkaline bar soaps, and alcohol-based products may worsen acne. Barbara R. Reed, MD, a dermatology professor at the University of Colorado Hospital in Denver says many people tend to over wash and over scrub when they get acne, which can cause irritation.
- Consistency is the key to success. April W. Armstrong, MD, MPH, assistant professor of dermatology at the University of California Davis Health System, tells WebMD that she advises patients to keep using a product even after they notice an improvement or the acne is likely to return. Your skin may look clear for a few weeks after stopping, but that's just because blemishes take time to develop. Also, using a product as a spot treatment does not prevent acne from developing in other untreated areas. You need to apply medication to the entire affected area that tends to break out if you want to have consistently clear skin.
