Acne Treatments for Women

An essential and comprehensive guide to acne treatments for women of all ages

Acne is no longer just a teenage affliction. In fact, dermatologists often refer to it as a woman's disease, and drugstore shelves are filled with acne products specifically geared toward adult women. But how do you choose from the overwhelming selection of acne treatments? Which products are appropriate to use as you grow older, become pregnant, or enter menopause? How can you work with a dermatologist to get the most out of prescription acne medications?

Lydia Preston answers all of these questions and more, with up-to-date information drawn from her years of reporting on dermatology, as well as her own long personal experience with acne. In Breaking Out, she shares the wisdom of dozens of doctors and scientists who have devoted their careers to studying acne treatments, including:

  • Guidelines for buying and using over-the-counter acne treatments
  • Acne Treatments for acne scars
  • Emergency acne remedies and camouflage tips
  • Alternative acne treatments, including herbal remedies, acupuncture, dietary approaches, and ways to unlock the mind-skin connection  

No one has to live with acne or its consequences. Breaking Out is an invaluable guide to understanding and combating acne that women of all ages can turn to with confidence.

Fantastic resource

After years of dealing with my acne issues, both on my own and with a dermatologist's arsenal of treatment options, I'd still found myself frustrated by my persistant skin problems.  This book did a fantastic job of explaning how and why each type of medication/treatment works so now I finally understand the best way for me to utilize drugstore and prescription treatments.

After less than a month of following the author's advice, my skin is already clearer than I can remember it being, basically since puberty!  I can't stress enough the value of her explanations of HOW medications like benzoyl peroxide work, so that you can understand how you need to use them for them to be effective.

Everything I've always wanted to know about acne.

The author suffered from acne several years and therefore she understands better how we feel.

Everything you need to know about acne you'll find in this book. As a journalist she interviewed the best specialists from coast to coast.

That said she doesn't try to impose, what a doctor would, her own view point towards acne treatment. This way you feel free to pick whathever treatment works best for you. And believe me, she goes through every single one there is.

Although I have a dermarologist, this book helped me out as far as giving me the tools to better explain my doctor what kind of acne treatment I wanted. Knowledge is power especially when it comes to acne and I am much more confident towards my acne treatment now.
