What about topical acne treatments? Well, here’s something that will surprise you. Traditional acne creams and lotions contain an ingredient that can actually irritate your skin and make problem worse. That’s right, your efforts to clear your skin may actually be adding fuel to the fire. These products disrupt your skin’s natural acidic pH, chip away at your skin’s protective layer and actually trigger production of sebum. To avoid these types of products, I prefer gel or gel-cream type formulations that avoid harmful ingredients like PEG’s, Glycols and soap-based emulsifiers (often listed as Self-Emulsifying Wax or Polysorbate).
