Face time

Recently I've been trying to get my face to be clearer. Ever since I started some new medications for my psoriasis back in Dec/Jan I've broken out a ton. I have a few acne treatment products but they weren't doing much to help. I started actually paying attention to things like acne commercials and acnepril reviews trying to see what might help. Than I read a simple tip somewhere. Maybe in a magazine. That is to put heat on the problem areas for a few minutes a day to kill the bacteria. It said if you keep getting acne in the same areas that means the pores are continuously getting infected with bacteria there and if you apply heat (I think it said somewhere around 110*) for a few minutes then it helps kill the bacteria that causes the acne. I thought it would be worth a try, and cheaper than buying a bunch of different acne treatments. So most nights for the last week I've remembered to wet a washcloth with the hottest water I can stand and hold it to the affected areas. It's not completely clear but I've noticed a big difference already. I don't know if it would help a person with severe acne, but it has helped me with my trouble spots.
