Best Pimple Cream

If you're looking for the best cream to get rid of pimples, you should know that there is no such thing as a “the best pimple cream.” Fact is, all of them have the same common ingredients, and contain either benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid.

I know you’re contemplating it, popping that pimple. But before you do so you should know that if you pop a pimple, you risk spreading an infection and getting more! Also, you can end up having a scab. So, don’t go that route, regardless of how tempting it may be.

Rather than giving you a “top ten” list of pimple cream medications, which would be misleading, all you need to look for is that the aforementioned ingredients are part of the solution.

A face with a pimple.

Benzoyl Peroxide: Comes in 2.5%, 5%, or 10% concentration levels. 2.5% has been shown to be just as effective as the 5% and 10% concentrations. Furthermore, the more highly-concentrated solutions can irritate your skin and may even make things worse. Mayo Clinic provides a list of products with this solution.

Salicylic Acid: Works similarly to its benzoyl peroxide counterpart. Brand names include Neutrogena, Akurza, and Salex, according to Mayo Clinic. Before using any over-the-counter or prescription cream, make sure that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients. Furthermore, children have a higher chance of side effects from this ingredient than adults.

Before you apply any creams, make sure to wash the infected area. This way, you clear you skin of oil, which will allow your pores to absorb the solution and work more effectively. You also might be thinking to yourself, what is the difference between an acne cream and a pimple cream? Well, there is none. An acne cream can be used to treat pimples and a pimple cream can be used to treat acne. They all have the same active ingredients.

Also, if you are going to be browsing user reviews off of sites like Amazon or, know that what works for one person may not work for another. Regardless, because there are so many medications out there, if one doesn’t work, just try another one.

Now go get rid of that annoying pimple!

Nice article, lays out the basics for fighting pimples. Most people would be wise to read this article before they rush out to choose just any facial product.

The Made from Earth Rosehip & Hibiscus Face Serum is EXCELLENT for controlling my acne breakouts. I've tried many more expensive products, even those recommended by various dermatologists but the products didn't give me consistent acne control.

Then my doctor (not a dermatologist) suggested I try the Made from Earth Rosehip & Hibiscus Face Serum and I've never looked back. It works well under make-up, and with other skin care products and I saw immediate results as my breakouts got less and less and now I just have one or two (if any) mild pimples a month, when I used to get from six to ten bad pimples in a month, many during the same week. Also my pimples come less frequently so my face has more time to heal and blemishes disappear.

Even if you only bought it once, this product is much cheeper than many acne products out there claiming to help heal or control acne prone skin. I've told so many people of all ethnic skin types, age groups, and sexes about this product, even strangers, because I know that they are looking for a product that works to control acne. If I had only found it sooner I could have avoided some of my acne scars and wear on my skin. That's why I telling you now; for the price you should BUY IT/TRY IT. Made from Earth also has great acne cleansers, like the Green Tea Toxin Cleanser and other products; including wrinkle creams.

Since I have sensitive skin I only use the Rosehip Face Serum and the Green Tea Toxin Cleanser - best combination and finally cleared up my face!!

I used Clearasil and it makes my face very dry! I'm not very sure if it has those 2 ingrediants but I wonder if it helps at ALL! Is Clean and Clear good? It's for $5 in all drug stores and I wonder if it's too cheap it does no good. I dont have money for the Proactiv and I know it does good. Help...
