Acne is not a pleasant thing to suffer from – and although it can’t be cured, it can be controlled with a variety of treatments.

The type of treatment you have will depend on how severe your acne is, but no matter what method you choose it can still take several months to see any signs of it improving or diminishing.

Blackheads, whiteheads and spots are the most common, and these can be treated successfully with various over-the-counter topic treatments (creams, gels and lotions) as well as some basic self-help and hygiene techniques. However, more severe cases of acne call for stronger solutions such as prescription antibiotics.

Ultimately, the point of any treatment is to reduce bacterial growth, unclog your pores and let you get on with living a spot-free life.

To this end, here are some of the most practical and effective treatments to get rid of acne once and for all.
