How to choose the right cream to treat acne?

With all the over-the-counter acne treatment options out there, it can be a daunting task to find the right acne treatment cream for you. So let’s start with the basics – to choose the right acne treatment cream, the types of acne[2] you have must first be considered. 

Inflammatory acne

This type of acne is the most common and is seen all around popular culture and media. Specifically, inflammatory acne consists of papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts. 


When oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells clump together, papules are formed. This type of acne causes inflammatory craters or indentations on your skin. 


This type of acne also arises from an excess build-up of oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells. However, the distinction is that pustules are filled with pus – thus the name pustules


This type of inflammatory acne is similar to papules but has no centre yellow head or dot. It also causes more dark scarring as it digs deeper into your skin.


While being similar to pustules, cysts affect the face in a more serious manner. Cysts are larger pus-filled bumps that are embedded deeper into the skin. This causes more inflammation, irritation, and scarring over time. 

Non-inflammatory acne

Non-inflammatory acne also affects the pores on the face. However, it does not cause any swelling and overt redness. The two main types of non-inflammatory acne are whiteheads and blackheads. 


Also known as closed comedones, whiteheads completely cover the pores on the skin. They come in the form of flesh- or white-coloured bumps and cannot be removed by scraping or squeezing. 


Blackheads are called open comedones since they do not cover the top part of the pore. They are caused by a build-up of dead skin cells and an oil-like substance called sebum.  

Now that you are familiar with the types of acne, you can better understand acne treatment cream. However, before you go order a generic solution, keep in mind that not all women react to skincare products the same way. 

Instead of a guess-and-check strategy, why not save precious time by using a more reliable method? Subscribe to Moshy’s services and get an acne treatment cream custom made for your specific needs. 

What are the benefits of using acne treatment creams?

Using topical solutions like acne treatment creams offers a number of benefits. Listed below are the two main advantages[3] this type of acne treatment provides. 

Anti-bacterial properties 

The active ingredients in acne treatment creams focus on removing bacteria on the skin. As a result, they eliminate the noticeable inflammation and redness often associated with moderate to severe acne problems. 

Skin oil reduction

Some acne treatment creams also aim to remove the excess oil build-up on the surface of the skin. Stripping the face of just the right amount of oil means that there would be a reduction in papules, nodules, pustules, and cysts. 

While these generic acne treatment creams may be effective for some men, others may still need a more direct approach. To receive expert advice and a personalised solution provided by an Australian health practitioner, check out our convenient subscription service at Moshy.

How to apply acne treatment creams?

When it comes to acne treatment cream, Moshy keeps it simple so that it’s easy to use. Always ensure you follow your health practitioner’s instructions, but normally, the following are the basic steps in caring for your skin. 

First, wash your face and use our cleanser to make your skin a fresh canvas for the personalised acne treatment cream to seep into.

Afterwards, dry your face and then squeeze the cream onto the tips of your fingers. You should create a paddle shape with your hand so that you have full control over the amount. 

Next, dab the treatment onto your face, making sure that it is applied to all sections of your face. Once this is done, you can rub in the cream to create an even layer.

Lastly, leave the cream on your face overnight and let it do all the work – don’t forget to wash off the active ingredients on your hands after application. Remember to consult with your health practitioner regularly to give updates regarding your situation. 

Now that you know how important acne treatment cream can be for your skin’s health, it’s time to finish up the sign-up process and officially be a patient at Moshy. Subscribe now and enjoy convenient, automatic refills as you need them!
