The third important thing is to tackle the bacteria . There are both oral and topical antibacterial agents to treat acne. In the past this was the main strategy to treat acne but due to resistance this is no longer the first step in treating acne.
Furthermore, there are also products on the market that work in the opposite way . Yun developed probiotics that add good bacteria to the skin that will fight the bacteria causing acne . A product like Yun supplies a large dose / mass of good bacteria in such a way that it gets the upper hand. Does it work spectacularly? No, with a really acne-prone skin, antibiotics will work much faster because they will actually kill the bacteria. But it's a good idea!
Next to antibiotics and probiotics, there is also ' benzoyl peroxide' that kills the bacteria on the skin, as explained above.
