It’s time for your hair to apologize to your complexion!

January 8th, 2011

Many people who suffer from acne have tried everything to get clear skin. Facial cleansers, special masks, topical treatments, diet — you name it. But what is often completely forgotten about is something that seems so obvious once it’s mentioned: hair care products. If you have acne, your hair care products may be to blame.
How Hair Care Products Can Cause Acne
Hair care products can cause acne by exacerbating overproduction by the sebaceous glands. This actually triggers a further imbalance — and it can clog pores, which contributes to the creation of new acne, or even inflammation of existing breakouts. It is possible for acne breakouts to be triggered — or worsened — on the neck, jaw line, chest, back, ears and the entire face.
Since acne is caused by the accumulation of excess skin cells, bacteria and sebum, which is the oil produced by the body, it can appear in many different forms. Some forms are whiteheads, blackheads and cystic acne.

A Testimony from a Kairos fan…
I went to the Dermatologist for three months and tried every topical and acne wash imaginable.  I even took antibiotics for a while.  My sister had used Kairos for back acne and had great results and within days so I decided it was worth a try.  After using Kairos for just one week the acne on my cheeks that had haunted me for three months was gone!  I highly recommend Kairos for all acne sufferers, it works wonders!

Give the gift of clear skin for the holidays…

November 21st, 2010

We all want to look and feel our best during the holiday season.  Acne sufferers and those who suffer with other inflammatory skin conditions such as rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis, etc. know that the stress of seeing family and loved ones on the holidays can sometimes overshadow the joy of the season.  We all want to look and feel our best when we reunite with our family and friends, but if our complexion is compromised, many times our attitude is, too.  So why not give the gift of clear skin to yourself and to others?  While acne, rosacea, and seborrheic dermatitis are different diseases, they are linked and similar because they are inflammatory conditions that have no cure.  We would certainly be remiss if we didn’t mention how many of our Kairos Acne Care Solutions users have found that not only did their acne improve after using Kairos, but their rosacea and other skin problems  improved after using our hair care products, as well.  Remember, they are all inflammatory conditions, and Kairos is built to fight inflammation!  Replace your current hair care products with Kairos and watch your gift of clear skin appear right before your eyes!  Order yours today…  kairosclear.com

Got razor bumps? Calm the war between razor and skin!

October 10th, 2010

If you experience those little, nasty, red post-shave bumps, we have some simple solutions for you.   Actually, the medical term for those little monsters is PFB (pseudofolliculitis barbae) or as they are more commonly called, ingrown hairs or razor burn. These bumps and/or skin irritation are a result of shaving, waxing, and other types of hair removal.

For the guys, this condition usually occurs on the neck after shaving.  An easy way to reduce this problem is by shaving everyday.  Guys always want a nice smooth shave and think if they let their hair grow a little longer and then shave it, they will get a “closer shave”.  The reality is that when the razor pulls on the hair, the follicle becomes irritated and inflammation results.  Another hint for reducing PFB is to use an electric razor rather than a straight edged razor.  This type of shave reduces the irritation and thus, the PFB.

For girls, many experience post-shave razor bumps at the bikini line.  Because there is the added irritation of clothing rubbing on the already irritated skin, special care should be taken to avoid infection of the skin in this area.

For both guys and girls there is a simple solution that will calm the war between razor and skin!  Kairos Acne Care Solution’s Oil-Reducing/Pore Perfecting Treatment. This anti-inflammatory solution contains both antibacterial and exfoliating properties that will rid your skin of those irritating and unsightly bumps.  Applying this solution to the shaved area after shaving will give your skin a clean, smooth and bump-less finish!

Laser Treatments – Talk apples to apples before you decide…

September 20th, 2010

Many people are choosing laser treatments for their acne and acne scarring.  Having worked for many years in one of the busiest laser centers on the west coast, I saw some BIG mistakes being made by the consumer.  Comparing prices of laser treatments can be a tricky business.  You can get huge discrepancies in pricing but that doesn’t mean that one doctor just charges more than the other.  There are different ways to use the same laser.  Some doctors are more aggressive than others and do “more pulses” (firings of the laser)  More pulses = more $$$.  More pulses, however, typically mean better results.  Some doctors do “more passes” (layers of pulses)  More passes = more $$$.  More passes generally mean better results.  (this is “generally speaking”… some lasers would harm you if you do too many pulses and passes, so don’t demand more to try to get your money’s worth!)  Here’s a typical scenario – Dr. John Doe may do 100 pulses and distribute those pulses one time over the face (one pass).  Dr. Jane Doe may do 500 pulses and distribute those pulses over three passes (three times around the face).  So, there you have the same laser being used, but the intensity of the treatment differs significantly, as do the results, as does the price.  The bottom line when choosing a doctor and a laser treatment is research, research, research!  Here are a few pointers to get you started in your quest to find the perfect doctor for your laser therapy…  remember, make sure you’re talking apples to apples when purchasing a laser treatment!
-be sure that the doctor you choose is well educated and experienced in laser therapy.
-ask how long he has had the laser he is going to use on you and how many patients have had the same treatment. (some offices have before and afters so that you can see the results of other patients)
-be sure that all staff performing laser treatments are licensed to do so as laws differ from state to state.  (i.e. in the state of California, it is unlawful for anyone but an RN, NP, PA or MD to perform laser treatments.)
-ask how long the technician has been performing laser treatments.
There are many other questions to be asked before you choose your doctor and your treatment.  Study and research before you take the laser leap!

Where is your acne? This tells us why you’re getting it…

September 15th, 2010

Where your acne is located can tell you much about the probable cause.  For example, many people experience perioral acne (acne around the mouth and on the chin) when they are “hormonal.”  Acne that is on or around the hairline and down the sides of the cheeks can be caused by hair products.  Back acne can also be caused by hair products as they run down in the shower or during the day with perspiration.  To find out more acne facts, visit the Kairos acne help center at http://www.kairosclear.com/acne-help/

Tired of washing your hair everyday?

September 12th, 2010

Many people find that in the summertime, when the weather is hot and sticky, their hair tends to get oily faster than usual.  Since summer isn’t over yet, here’s a beauty tip because washing your hair everyday can get old, especially when you have to take time to style it, too!  If you can dry up the oil on your scalp, you won’t need to wash your hair as often.  The creators of Kairos Acne Care Solutions have developed a skin care line that not only helps treat and prevent acne, but also allows for more days between shampoos because it keeps the scalp and skin from producing too much oil.  They offer a special “Pore-Perfecting, Oil- Reducing Scalp Treatment.”   During the hot summer months, or just for those with very oily hair, it keeps the hair looking cleaner longer.
Here’s how the scalp treatment works.  With the pointed tip applicator, squirt lines of the product in three or four rows and then massage into your scalp.  Leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing.  There is no need to pull it through the hair, just treat the scalp.   Remember, reducing the oil on your scalp makes your face less oily, too.  So if you suffer from midday oiliness on your face, the Kairos Oil Reducing – Pore Perfecting Treatment may be just what you so that the only shine on your face throughout the day is your beautiful smile!

Here’s some help for inflammatory skin and scalp conditions…

August 28th, 2010

When we created our line of hair care products, we had our acne patients in mind.  However, Kairos Acne Care Solutions has shown to be effective against other inflammatory disease processes.  Seborrheic Dermatitis is a term used for an abundance of inflammatory skin conditions.  Since Kairos’ active ingredient is Salicylic Acid, it has been effective in reducing some of the symptoms of these conditions.  Patients with Rosacea, for example, have noticed a dramatic improvement of the redness on their cheeks, nose and chin after using Kairos.  Customers with irritated areas of unknown origin on their scalp have also noticed improvement.  Even customers with flaky scalp have benefited from Kairos because of its exfoliating properties. Kairos was built to fight against acne and other inflammatory diseases of the scalp and skin.  The anti-inflammatory botanicals are helpful in soothing irritated scalp and skin along with the Sal Acid.  Guys who use the skin and scalp treatment on their “razor rash” have also found it to be therapeutic in reducing those nagging little bumps.  So, Kairos isn’t just for acne!  It is a multipurpose product with amazing hidden benefits!

Tired of washing your hair everday? Here’s a solution…

June 30th, 2010

Many people find that in the summertime, when the weather is hot and sticky, their hair tends to get oily faster than usual.  Washing your hair everyday can get old, especially when you have to take time to style it, too!  If you can dry up the oil on your scalp, you won’t need to wash your hair as often.  The creators of Kairos Acne Care Solutions have developed a skin care line that not only helps treat and prevent acne, but also allows for more days between shampoos because it keeps the scalp and skin from producing too much oil.  They offer a special “Pore-Perfecting, Oil- Reducing Scalp Treatment.”   During the hot summer months, or just for those with very oily hair, it keeps the hair looking cleaner longer.

Get rid of acne before summer!

June 22nd, 2010

In recent years, “bacne” has become a common and acceptable word that refers to the irritating, unsightly and often embarrassing acne that occurs on the back.  Although it hasn’t made it into Webster’s, Wikipedia has welcomed the term into its dictionary.  Bacne isn’t usually a troublesome issue for most people during the cool autumn and cold winter months when clothing can easily conceal the problem.  However, as spring and summer approach, those pesky bumps do become irksome when you want to wear your brand new bathing suit or adorable, new little tees.  And, why is it, that the breakouts always seem to show up right above the line of your favorite summer shirt?  Well, instead of buying new shirts to conceal those uncooperative blemishes, let’s get down to the basics of WHY you’re getting them and HOW to avoid it!  As most of you know already, hair care products are a huge culprit to acne breakouts on the back.  Especially for girls with longer hair.  In our before and afters, you can actually tell where the girl’s hair ends… it’s where her acne ends! http://www.kairosclear.com/before-and-after/ For guys who wear gel or hair glue, this can be a real problem for the neck and back as the product drips down in the sweat throughout the day. Even rolling around on your pillow night after night, if you don’t wash the products out before you go to sleep, can be a bacne culprit.
As summer approaches and the weather heats up, for most it means more sweating. The oils that are on your hair and scalp will travel downward! Also, if you are putting a ton of oils on your head and hair in your haircare products, you will subsequently have an oilier face, neck, back and chest where blemishes will thrive. (your scalp and face are connected, remember?  the skin is one big organ… the largest one, as a matter of fact!)   Obviously, showering shortly after exercise or being out in the hot weather is essential, but also using Kairos Acne Care Solutions offers an easy way to avoid blemishes all together! When you use Kairos and sweat, acne-fighting and noncomedogenic ingredients travel downward!  Those ingredients actually treat and prevent bacne rather than cause it. Kairos offers a win-win solution in the fight against bacne!
