Acnease - Herbal Supplement
I went off of spironolactone because of all the side effects, and I broke out pretty bad. I ordered this stuff in desperation. I have been taking this for about 11 days at 12x/day and it has healed my acne about 70%. I am still breaking out a little but nothing like it was before. My skin is glowing, the zits aren't red they are more pink, less oily skin, and its only been 11 days. I'll repost after a month!.

Real Guys Have Acne Too tips to prevent them

More than 60 million adults in the US are diagnosed with acne, over 50% of adult women and 25% of adult men having this skin disease. The average age of an individual with acne problem is now, 26.5, while just 10 years ago it was 20.5.

So what other myths prevent men from having clear skin?

Acne is only for teens. If you toughen up and wait until those uncomfortable years are gone- acne problem will go away too. Wrong!

The reality is that most acne can be traced back to fluctuations in hormone levels. A common misunderstanding is that men have testosterone and women estrogen and progesterone; the truth is that both – males and females have a balance of all three hormones. The primary cause of the formation of acne is a fluctuation in androgens (male’s hormones) and in particular testosterone, DHEAS (dihyroepiandrosterone sulfate) and DHT (dehydrotestosterone). Elevation in these hormones can lead to over secretion by the sebaceous glands and the onset of acne formation.

My Experience With ACNEASE: A Review
My Experience With ACNEASE: A Review & Photos

I’ve said it before and I’m not embarrassed to say it again… I have hormonal acne issues.  Being a beauty blogger who doesn’t have the slightest idea how to use photoshop, (I’m trying to learn, and it’s seriously like I’m trying to teach my grandpa how to use “the twitter”) I try to keep my face as under control as possible.  With products from Reviva Labs and Murad, it’s been pretty easy.  BUT.  I test A LOT of skin care.  And sometimes different products will just make a break out happen.

As I said, my acne is hormone related.  It’s all along the jaw and chin area.  (Having kids does a lot more to your body than stretching out that gut!).  I’m always in the market to shock my face into submission.  So, when the opportunity to try out AcnEase came about, I jumped on it much like I jump on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Good Sun & Bad Sunscreen: 2 Myths About Sun Protection By Dr. Agnes Olszewski
Most of us are led to believe that if we slather on sunscreen  in the morning and then stay out on the beach all day long, our skin is protected. Unfortunately, this is incorrect.  Learning about proper sun protection and sunscreens will keep you and your skin safe!

Myth 1:  The sun is bad for you

Fact:  No, the sun is NOT BAD for you.

In fact, the sun is healthy if you take precautions. Ultraviolet light from the sun comes in two main wavelengths: UVA and UVB. They are quite different in respect of the risk they create for your health. UVB is the “good” sunlight and UVA is the “bad” one.   UVB helps you produce vitamin D that is extremely important for your overall wellbeing, supporting the health of your bones, muscles, skin, eyesight, heart and immune system. UVA can cause free radical damage.

Acne and Diet
Acne and Diet

Now that I have your attention, let’s talk about what you eat and how it affects your skin.

Diet alone isn’t the cause of skin problems like acne, but it can clearly exasperate its symptoms. The good news is, it can also help in eliminating them.

Acne is a manifestation of an internal imbalance that makes our sebaceous glands go “bonkers” and produce too much sebum (skin oil) that, together with dirt, creates an inviting  “playground” for bacteria, and results in inflammation (cysts and pimples) or less dramatic, but still unwelcomed, whiteheads and blackheads.

Want Your Skin Glowing For Valentine’s Day?
Want your skin to glow for Valentine’s Day? You still have two days left to get your skin looking its best for the Cupid’s Day! Here are some of Dr. Agnes’ quick tips on DIY treatments designed to provide you with instant results especially good for troubled, acne prone skin. These treatments are good for all types of complexion both women and men.

Take your Skin to the Spa (at Home!) Try to do the following treatments at least twice before Tuesday, and in this order; steam first, followed by the astringent, lastly the rejuvenation.

Steam Bath: Steaming is very good to keep skin clean and blemish free, as it can remove excess sebum and dirt and deeply cleanse clogged pores. It also allows the black heads and whiteheads to be pushed out easily and therefore avoid pimples. Steam will also improve circulation, giving you a healthy glow.  Do the steam facial once before Valentine’s Day, but NOT on the big day.
