There are so many different methods for treating acne these days, from laser and light procedures to products, but what are the most effective acne treatments for your skin? Antibiotics are an extremely effective way to clear your skin as they go beneath the skin and into your body, killing the harmful bacteria that are responsible for your breakouts, clearing your skin. Doxycycline and Minocycline are two of the most popular oral antibiotics to treat skin, but you should check with your dermatologist in order to decide which medication will suit your skin best.

Some of the lasers that are used to treat acne include Diode, Pulsed Dye, Fractional, Pulsed Light and InfraRed. While research has not been able to find a direct link between food and acne, many people have noticed a difference in the quality of their skin by making simple changes to their diet and avoiding certain foods. In retrospect, doing a combination of the above mentioned therapies will yield the best results for your skin.
