Got Bacne? Hurry! Summer’s coming! See what the experts say…

Friday, April 9th, 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! 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!

Kairos isn’t just for acne…

Tuesday, April 6th, 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!
