With the fast-rising problem of teens and other adults regarding acne, medicinal breakthroughs were introduced in order to deal with the outbreak directly. In this article, Reddit users shared their best acne spot treatments that would surely erase those annoying spots.
“What is your preferred spot treatment?” was the million-dollar question on one Reddit user’s mind two days ago when they posted to the Asian Beauty subreddit, more than likely with the hope of crowdsourcing some legit methods to add to their arsenal. And with their luck (not to mention people’s stark obsession with acne), myriad responses began rolling in at a rapid rate. So much so that I was ready to put them to the test myself. I wondered, How many of these actually work? And how many of them are just random “treatments” people got lucky with?
Intrigued, I tapped my dermatologist friends for backup. Because if anyone can call bullshit on acne advice, it’s them. Thus, here I bestow on you some of the best, expert-approved acne spot treatments, according to Reddit users (along with one you should probably cross off your list for good).
