So how does it work to help your acne? As you may well know by now, pimples and acne are a direct result of your pores getting clogged with oils and other bacteria, either from your face or from the environment. The more oils your face secretes, the more clogged pores you are likely to experience. Hydrocortisone works to reduce the inflammation on your face as well as the red-rash appearance, and it also serves to dry up the pimples so that they virtually disappear. You can then wash your face of the cream to reveal a shrunken pimple or patch of pimples.
