Bacne… not a good look for summer!

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

Bacne and swimsuits just don’t go together.  For guys, bacne can ruin those traps you worked so hard to perfect at the gym all year long.  For girls, one bacne can ruin that adorable bathing suit that cost you your entire paycheck!  Here are some tips from the experts on how to keep that bacne at bay…

1.  Never use a loofa or scrub brush on your back.  This can spread bacteria which can make your acne worse.

2.  When using an acne wash on your back, make sure it is a little stronger than the wash you use on your face. It takes a higher strength medication to penetrate the skin on the back.

3.  When choosing hair care products for the summer, make sure you choose products that are low in oils.  Kairos Acne Care Solutions for the hair offers safe shampoo and conditioner.  Too much oil on the scalp and hair can migrate to the back and surrounding skin areas.  If you use mousse, gel or hair sprays, make sure you use Kairos styling products that have also been created especially for acne sufferers.

4.  Along those same “hair” lines, if you have long hair, keep it up off your back and shoulders during hot weather.

5.  Keep your pillowcase clean and change it more often, especially if you are using oily hair care products.

6.  Use sunblock when you are out in the sun, and make sure it is oil-free!

Have fun in the sun this summer and use these tips to beat bacne before it starts!

Acne hurts inside and out!

Friday, May 7th, 2010

Acne sufferers have one thing in common. Their acne hurts.  Only some of them suffer the physical pain, but it’s safe to say that mostly all of them suffer some emotional pain associated with their acne.  I had a patient once tell me that having acne was like being forced to wear an ugly outfit everyday.  For some reason, that stuck with me.  I guess it was my aha! moment that acne isn’t something to be taken lightly and many people are not able to be the best they can be because of it.  Most people who don’t suffer from acne have never taken the time to consider how painful and embarrassing it can be.  Having worked for many years in a super busy acne clinic with many severe cases of acne, it became crystal clear that it is a disease that can damage the self-esteem by making you feel self conscious and not able to get out there and do what you want to do.  I want nothing more than to help you get clear and stay clear!  People who don’t know that their hair products are contributing to their acne are getting pimples (and maybe even scarring from those pimples) that they never should have had in the first place!  It is our goal to make sure that everyone knows that hair care products can make your acne worse and also to make sure that everyone knows they now have an alternative to traditional hair care products.  For more on acne and acne prevention go to and get clear skin now!
