Re: Spots and whiteheads

GMcGregor - I definitely agree with you. I also use Aknicare and it has worked so well for me. I can't praise it enough :)

Adult Acne Treatment

My son and daughter both suffered horrifically with acne and when I started to go through the menopause I found that my skin changed dramatically, and much for the worse! I started with acne, despite never having suffered with it before. I used the products that I have been purchasing for them for y...

Re: Adult Acne

A really interesting comment was left on one of my posts that there are studies out there that show benzoyl peroxide can actually deplete vitamin E within the skin. This is harmful to the skin, as Vitamin E is the main antioxidant that protects the skin from damaging factors such as UV exposure. I p...

Acne and dehydrated skin

Hormonal sensitivity causes the loss of essential fatty acids from the skin and it has been shown that the oil (sebum) of acne sufferers can lose up to 90% of its linoleic acid content. Such a change causes a rapid increase in the rate the skin loses water (trans epidermal water loss - TEWL). This c...

Effective control of Acne

After years of struggling with acne I finally a decent regimen that keeps my skin clear. I have used Aknicare's 3 Product set for quite some time now and it works brilliantly at keeping my oil production under control and hence my skin clear.

Re: Adult Acne

Acne has blighted my twenties. I certainly relate to your feelings of self consciousness and depleted self confidence. My acne is predominantly on my face but does work its way down my neck and occassionaly to my chest. It really gets me down during a breakout. My Mum found me a product called Aknic...
