There is a big misconception about which race acne attacks the most. People with fairer skin like Caucasians believe that they get acne more than people with darker skin tones like Blacks and Latinos. The belief couldn’t be further from the truth. Acne affects people from all racial groups and with all skin tones. But given the difference in skin tones, Blacks and Latinos have to use different measures to treat and fight acne.
If you look at all of the advertisements for acne products, they all seem to target people with fair skin. Perhaps the companies that make these products don’t think that the minority skin care market is big enough for them to target. But just because you don’t see some one that looks like you on the acne product package, that doesn’t mean that you can’t find products that will treat your acne. In fact, those companies that aren’t targeting you are actually doing you a favor. They are almost forcing you to create your own acne care products.
Creating your own acne care products is very simple and you can do it with ingredients that you already have in your home. If you have some oatmeal and some honey, you can make a paste to apply to the acne bumps on your face. In just a few minutes, this paste will help end your acne breakout. A paste made from lemon and salt will do the same thing. If you try some of these and other homemade acne remedies and they don’t work, you can always consult your family doctor or a dermatologist to find a solution to your acne problem.
Just because the personal care companies don’t make a product that you feel fits your particular needs, you don’t have to despair. Instead of just sitting there, you can take control of your acne skin care needs. There are ingredients sitting in your home right now that will make a better, safer and cheaper product than you can find in any store. With just a little research and a little time, you can cure your own acne without anyone else’s help. And you can have that product ready at a moment’s notice so than when the next acne outbreak happens, you will be prepared to fight it.
