Treatment for acne had been one of the most common skin problems of people. Fortunately, Amazon offers a range of products that effectively removes unwanted spots. Aside from Amazon, skin experts also point out other alternative solutions for acne treatment.

In an interview with Fashionista, Miami-based dermatologist Dr. S. Manjula Jegasothy stated that dark spots occur when inflammation from acne, an insect bite or rash occurs. "This happens mostly to people with medium to dark skin tones, and these dark spots also last longer," she said. Jegastothy then mentioned that it would be more difficult to treat than the original inflammation. 

Nonetheless, if a person’s skin doesn’t see results from products on Amazon, experts reveal other over the counter products that might help acne treatment as well. It was shared by the experts that some of those mentioned products should include niacinamide, vitamin C, retinoids, soy, kojic acid, licorice root, daisy or peony extract.

Meanwhile, Teen Vogue reported that the top selling acne treatment products on Amazon last 2016 were Nexcare Acne Absorbing Cover, Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, Proactiv Renewing Cleanser, Clean & Clear Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment and Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash. Some of these products were mentioned to still remain as best-selling and effective products this year.

Speaking of this year’s top-selling Amazon acne treatment, cleansers and exfoliators were identified to by the publication with the help of Amazon Beauty. The top selling 2017 acne solution product was identified to be the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. Following bestselling products include Proactive Renewing Cleanser, the aforementioned Clean & Clear Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment, Neutrogena Oil Free Wash, and The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash.

Dr. Joshua Zeichner, the director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital advised getting help from a dermatologist if Amazon or any products wouldn't work. He also advised that the last resort for acne treatment would be that visit which would lead to procedures or other strong medications suitable for a person.
