“how to find the best cheap products” — kiplinger

Consumers want an acne treatment to be effective, gentle on the skin, and easy to apply. The best acne treatments for mild to moderate acne contain benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. Each can dry out or irritate the skin, but applying the acne therapy every other day and/or following-up with a moisturizer can help mitigate any negative effects. The acne treatments on our list come in different forms, including pads, creams, gels, and washes. All can be applied quickly and without fuss.
