Where is your acne?

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

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.  To find out more acne facts, visit the Kairos acne help center at

Accutane takes a hit in LA Times Saturday, November 7

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

The need for better and safer acne solutions is now greater than ever. The fight against acne may have just lost one of its heavyweights.  LA Times reports  that Accutane, one of the heavy hitters against acne for more than 25 years, has been linked to another serious side effect, inflammatory bowel disease.  This isn’t the first time controversy has reared its ugly head around this drug.  When it was released in 1982, it was warned on the labels that if Accutane was taken during pregnancy, it would cause serious birth defects.  So serious were these defects, that in 2005 the FDA started a program with the help of doctors and pharmacists to join a risk management registry that would ensure that females taking the medication would not become pregnant.  In the past, the package insert from Accutane showed what appeared to be little alien babies with a warning that this is what you’re baby might look like if you take Accutane while pregnant!  I don’t know about you, but I think if a drug can cause serious harm to a fetus, it stands to reason that the question should be asked by the user, “What’s it doing to my body?”

So, another nail in the coffin of Accutane.  Inflammatory bowel disease is a serious disorder and studies show that Accutane users are almost twice as likely to develop the disease as nonusers.   Inflammatory bowel disease causes the intestines to become irritated and swollen, causing severe cramping, diarrhea, weight loss and sometimes intestinal bleeding.  Along with other side effects including, sun sensitivity, muscle and joint aches and pain, headaches, thinning hair, high cholesterol and liver toxicity, this new link to bowel disease may be the final knockout punch for Accutane.  There have also been links to depression and even suicide in some users.  The data regarding the link between bowel disease and Accutane has yet to be published in a peer-reviewed journal, so some physicians are considering it preliminary.  So, once again, the risk of the benefits of the drug must be measured against the risk of the side effects.  I know that the emotional scars of acne run deep, but the physical ailments left in the trail of Accutane may be worse still.  I feel for acne sufferers who feel they are now are left without an option, but this may force the industry to find an acceptable and safe alternative for the future.  Which, in my opinion, is what they should have done in the first place.  A simple, safe and effective alternative for acne sufferers was the compelling force behind the creation of Kairos Acne Care Solutions and we are proud to be able to help!

Oil Reducing – Pore Perfecting Treatment

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

Many customers are ordering the trio and we want to make sure you know the complete benefits of the Kairos Oil Reducing – Pore Perfecting Treatment.  Remember, the treatment should only be used as directed on the scalp by those individuals who have a VERY oily scalp.  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.  The shampoo and conditioner will do the rest to protect and prevent your hair from causing breakouts.  For those of you who don’t have to wash your hair every day, you may be able to get by with just using the scalp treatment only once a week.  Or, even just use it as a face and body wash if it is too drying for your scalp. Some customers have said that they just dab it on new pimples and it is very effective in drying them up quickly!  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!

How to use Kairos for best results…

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

Many customers have called about how and when to use Kairos Acne Solutions.  The simple answer is… whenever you wash your hair! Just using the shampoo and then using salon conditioners WILL NOT WORK effectively to clear up your acne!  Additionally, using Kairos Shampoo and Conditioner and then using your old styling products WILL NOT WORK effectively to clear up your acne!  Many people ask if they can use their “regular” shampoo and conditioner and then use Kairos when they get breakouts.  The answer is… not if you want to get clear and stay clear! The way Kairos works is to help treat the acne that is there and then to help PREVENT new acne from popping up. If you go back to your old habits of using other hair products, you will not get the full benefit of staying clear!  New acne in the morning is never a pleasant surprise!  So, when using Kairos Acne Care Solutions, make sure you follow the directions carefully for each product and stick with the Kairos hair care line for all of your cleansing, conditioning and styling needs.  Kairos – Where healthy hair and clear skin meet!

Anti-Acne Shampoo to the Rescue!

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

If you’re struggling with acne, you may want to consider using an anti-acne shampoo. Free of ingredients that can clog pores and aggravate acne, Kairos anti-acne shampoo can seriously help when it comes to breakouts.

What many people who suffer from acne don’t realize is that their hair care products could be the reason for their breakouts. While special masks, cleansers and even diets may be tried, the problem may simply be the shampoo, gel and other hair care products you’re using.

So how exactly does a shampoo or other hair care product cause acne? Well, their ingredients can wind up exacerbating overproduction by the sebaceous glands, triggering a further imbalance and possibly leading to clogged pores and new acne. Breakouts on the neck, chest, jaw line and face can actually be triggered by certain hair care products. These hair care products wind up causing breakouts when they’re unknowingly transferred to the skin when you touch your hair and then touch your skin, or when your hair lays against your skin, for example.

The first hair care product line developed to treat and prevent acne, Kairos Clear’s medicated formula — found in the anti-acne shampoo — combats acne-causing factors linked to hair and hair products. With Kairos’ anti-acne shampoo, you get a product that leaves you hair silky and shiny — and it won’t cause breakouts. In fact, it works to clear acne and prevent future breakouts. This product features a carefully chosen cocktail of natural botanicals that clarifies and balances the hair, delivering salon-quality results without the worry of new acne breakouts.

Users of Kairos anti-acne shampoo have reported that their blemishes heal; future breakouts are prevented; frequency, intensity and number of acne breakouts are lessened; and excess oil on the hair, face and scalp is reduced.

Stop letting  your hair care products contribute to your acne and get Kairos Clear’s anti-acne shampoo. We also have a great selection of other hair care products like anti-acne hair gel and anti-acne conditioner.

Use a Three-Pronged Attack With Kairos Anti-Acne Hair Care Trio

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

Our Anti-Acne Hair Care Trio is a discounted purchase of three products designed to work together to combat acne in a comprehensive, complementary way.  At Kairos, our products are already used to multitasking.  We’ve decided to take that approach one step further by bundling our Clarifying Complex-Clearing Shampoo, our Balancing Breakout-Controlling Conditioner, and our Oil-Reducing Pore-Perfecting Treatment.  Why fight acne one way when you can do it with three methods?

Anti-Acne Hair Care Trio: How It Works

Even without the added skin care benefit, these three products would work well together as the core of a hair care regimen; however, the Anti-Acne Hair Care Trio bundle is very effective  at eliminating, treating, and preventing acne breakouts.  Here’s how:

  • Clarifying Complex-Clearing Shampoo works to clear blemishes and prevent future ones while simultaneously cleansing and detoxifying hair.  The anti-acne shampoo also does a great job of eliminating any products left in the hair, which are notorious for enhancing oiliness in the skin that exacerbates acne.
  • Balancing Breakout-Controlling Conditioner does what any great conditioner should by softening, detangling, smoothing, and moisturizing your hair.  At the same time, however, it also reduces the appearance of blemishes and helps prevent future acne breakouts.
  • Oil-Reducing Pore-Perfecting Treatment is applied biweekly after the use of the Clarifying Complex-Clearing Shampoo.  This anti-acne hair care treatment works to dramatically reduce excess oils on the face and scalp, reducing that greasy look while lessening the frequency, intensity, and duration of future breakouts.

Taken together, these products provide an excellent three-pronged attack against acne while providing world-class care for your hair.

The Kairos Anti-Acne Hair Care Philosophy

We believe that anti-acne hair care doesn’t simply mean removing aggravating oils from our products.  It’s more than that.  Our products specifically attack acne, reducing the appearance of blemishes and altering the conditioning of your skin to ensure that blemishes don’t return.  Sure, we eliminate those oils from our products, but then we treat your acne problem and work to prevent it from coming back.  That’s the Kairos way.

Fight Breakouts with Anti-Acne Hair Gel

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

Meet your new secret weapon in fighting breakouts: anti-acne hair gel. Part of Kairos Clear’s anti-acne hair care system — the first-ever complete system of its kind — anti-acne hair gel fights frizz, provides a smooth, relaxed hold, and best of all, it’s formulated to treat and prevent breakouts.

A lot of hair gels out there contain ingredients that can cause acne breakouts by exacerbating overproduction by the sebaceous glands, and that can trigger a further imbalance by clogging pores. When this happens, it’s possible for acne to appear on the chest, back, neck and jaw line — not just on the face.

Even if you’re really careful to avoid putting any hair care products on your face or close to your hairline, the fact remains that what you put in your hair will most likely eventually end up on your face. For example, if you touch your hair and then touch your face, or if you hair lies on your skin. And at night, oils from hair care products can be transferred from your pillowcase to the skin on your face, chest, back and neck. All of these situations increase the risk of acne.

But Kairos Soft Control Clear Style Hair Gel is anti-acne hair gel that was designed to not only provide salon-quality hair care benefits, but to do so without causing acne breakouts. This is a high-quality blend of natural ingredients, and the gel won’t flake — just non-sticky definition for sleek styles or natural curls.

Using Anti-Acne Hair Gel

Using anti-acne hair gel is simple: Just apply it to wet hair, work it through to ends and style as you desire. Kairos suggests using anti-acne shampoo, treatment and conditioner as well.

Many acne sufferers have been told to just not use any hair care products or to use very little. But it doesn’t have to be that way, thanks to Kairos Clear’s anti-acne hair care system and Kairos anti-acne hair gel.

Acne? Your Hair Care Products May be to Blame

Monday, July 27th, 2009

A lot of 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.
