Ain’t Misbehavin’ Medicated Acne Control Serum contains some proven acne-fighting ingredients, including salicylic acid and azelaic acid. However, the amount of alcohol (it’s the second ingredient here) makes this product too drying and irritating to consider. The tea tree oil is not present in great enough quantity to function as a topical disinfectant.

Helps address all the factors that contribute to the formation of acne.

Active: Salicylic Acid (2%), Other: Water, Alcohol Denat., Glycerin, Oleanolic Acid, Nordihydroguaiaretic Acid, Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Extract, Polyquaternium-37, Propylene Glycol, Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, PPG-1-Trideceth-6, Cyclomethicone, Azelaic Acid, Methyl Methacrylate Glycol Dimethacrylate Crosspolymer, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Phospholipids, Superoxide Dismutase, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil

The DERMAdoctor line is the brainchild of Kansas City-based dermatologist Dr. Audrey Kunin. Dr. Kunin's Web site retails not only the DERMAdoctor brand but several products from other brands, many of which have ties to specific dermatologic concerns (everything from athlete's foot to warts). Many of these specialty products are available from your local drugstore, but Kunin's site provides helpful, mostly reliable information concerning various skin-care concerns.

We wish her own products followed the strength of her advice, but alas, most do not. This is another dermatologist-developed line with plenty of products whose names and claims make you think they're a cosmetic corrective procedure in a bottle (or, in some cases, a jar, which is never a good packaging move). There are some products to pay attention to, though whether you want to strongly consider them or not comes down to how much you feel comfortable spending (DERMAdoctor products aren't cheap).

DERMAdoctor isn't exactly "your prescription for beautiful skin" but Dr. Kunin gets enough right that her line isn't one to gloss over, particularly if you're shopping for sunscreens, AHA products, and facial cleansers. Those with acne should look elsewhere, because DERMAdoctor's products don't have the solution, despite their cute product names.
