Acne is a bacterial problem. The Clarisonic Mia is a physical exfoliation device that can remove dead skin cells – one component of acne formation. This product is overpriced and you can get the same results with chemical exfoliation such as salicylic acid and glycolic acid.
If you want to get rid of acne, you need a combination approach to skin care.
You need a gentle cleanser that can remove surface oil.
You need a gentle pH-adjusted exfoliant with salicylic acid to reduce inflammation, kill bacteria, and exfoliate within the pore.
You need a benzoyl peroxide medication at 2.5% or 5% to kill acne bacteria; best used together with salicylic acid.
You need a broad-spectrum sunscreen during the day to prevent UV-inflammation and skin cancer.
You can get rid of oily skin when you age and your hormone levels out. Prescriptions options are birth control and isotretinoin.
Hydroquinone for dark spots.
