Top Searched Acne Treatments on AOL Search:
1. Proactiv
2. Differin
3. Tazorac
4. Benzaclin
5. Retin-A
6. Phisoderm
7. Minocin
8. Vibramycin
9. Zenmed
10. Triaz



Well that just shows you that "Top Searched" doesn't mean best. Proactiv is good for bad acne in many patients, but my first advised treatment is usually a generic salicylic acid wash that you can get over the counter for a few bucks. For many people with mild to moderate acne, this works great. You just have to use it a few times a day.

Retin A works quite well too and it went generic recently. Low strength generic Retin A will run you 1/3 the $$$$$ and works very well even when used just a few times a week. Don't use it when you anticipate a good deal of sun exposure in the next day or two as it can make your skin sensitive to sunlight.
