Skin systems tend to get a bad rap.  Some think they are gimmicky or cheap but NWS believes skin systems are the most effective regime for problematic skin.  Acne being the most common concern.

By using a system the skin gets the most appropriate dosage of the active ingredient in each step of the regime.  When mixing and matching products from different lines there is a risk of getting too much or not enough of the problem solving element.  Results may then be nil or could cause additional problems in its wake such as dry, flaky or inflamed skin.

The two best acne fighting regimes by our standards are Proactiv and Clinique Acne Solutions.  Proactiv boasts proven results and a celebrity clientele with its basic, 3 step system.  Use all three products in the range twice daily.

Clinique Acne Solutions offers a bit more flexibility than Proactiv so consumers can build their own system within the range.  The Cleansing Foam is a standout as is the Post Blemish Formula which helps to fade the lasting marks of pimples.

The best advice when starting any new skin care routine is consistency.  Stick with the new products for at least two weeks, barring an allergic reaction.  If results are marginal, say "Aww hell with the system" and switch out only one product at a time until desired results are seen to isolate the effective from the ineffective element(s).
