Clear Skin Ahead

What causes acne and how can I prevent it?

Whatever your age, breakouts have similar causes. Hormones play a big role. Your body starts producing them during puberty and continues through adulthood, flaring back up in your 40’s. 

Is there a difference between adult and teen acne? The location of breakouts changes as you get older. Teen frequently have clogged pores and whiteheads in the t-zone and center of the face. Women tend to break out at the periphery of the face- on the jaw and neck and along the hairline.

What ingredients will help with my acne?

The most effective treatments are salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. Make sure they are professional grade clinical skin care and not just over the counter cosmetic grade. Try Mark Lees BPO wash and Jan Marini Bioclear lotion or crème. Also facial treatments help to control and prevent acne.

Can I control breakouts and wrinkles at the same time?

Retinol is a super powerful ingredient that does double duty. It gently exfoliates to reduce breakouts while building collagen to plump up fine lines. Try Jan Marini Retinol Plus.
