Comparing OTC Acne Treatments

Fri, 30 May 2014 10:10:41 +00002014-05-30T10:10:41Z

Anyone who knows me knows I'm just a little bit cheap. I don't buy brand name clothes, I don't buy salon shampoo, and I definitely don't buy expensive skin care products. Inexpensive brands can be just as effective.

Getting Your Parents On Board with Treatment

Thu, 29 May 2014 16:00:43 +00002014-05-29T16:00:43Z

I've known lots of teens who have had to be dragged, kicking and screaming, to the dermatologist's office by their parents. But what if you are the one who wants to see a doctor about your acne, and your parents are digging in their heels?

Kick Off the Summer Season with the Right Sunscreen

Fri, 23 May 2014 14:00:23 +00002014-05-23T14:00:23Z

Memorial weekend marks the unofficial start of summer. That means more time enjoying the outdoors. So... are you wearing your sunscreen?

Yeah, I kinda hate it too. I mean, most sunscreens feel thick or heavy on my face, even the oil-free ones. (Although I do like Purpose Redness Reducing Moisturizer with SPF 30.)

What Teens Really Think of Acne

Wed, 21 May 2014 01:05:46 +00002014-05-21T01:05:46Z

Teens get acne. It's a natural, normal part of adolescence. So, many of us assume acne isn't that big of a deal to teenagers.

Guess what? Acne does affect them. Maybe more than they're letting on.

Personalize Your Acne Treatment

Sat, 17 May 2014 13:25:40 +00002014-05-17T13:25:40Z

Acne vulgaris, what we know as common acne, is just that: common. It doesn't matter how old you are, or what skin type you have, acne happens.

But teens are going to have different issues than adults with acne. Same goes for males and females. I was always interested in why I broke out more before my period, and if I could use makeup without irritating my acne. This info wouldn't mean much to men, though. You guys are probably more interested in shaving tips and reducing large pores.

How Often Are You Washing Your Face?

Thu, 08 May 2014 12:00:02 +00002014-05-08T12:00:02Z

Although it's still springtime, in my neck of the woods we're already experiencing rather summer-like weather. Which means my face gets super oily. Ugh.

The hot, yucky weather just makes you want to bust out the facial cleanser and scrub away. But how often is too often when it comes to cleansing your face?

Free Samples May Influence What Your Dermatologist Prescribes You

Tue, 29 Apr 2014 22:06:06 +00002014-04-29T22:06:06Z

Handing out free drug samples, especially for topical medications, is common practice in dermatology offices. It sounds like a good thing -- you get to try an acne medication to see how it works for you before paying for the prescription.

Got Blackheads? Try These...

Mon, 28 Apr 2014 23:55:44 +00002014-04-28T23:55:44Z

I probably get asked about blackheads more than anything else. Because even if you don't have acne, everyone (seriously, everyone) has blackheads.

Blackheads are what we call open comedones, basically blocked pores where the top is open and exposed to air. This is where the black "head" comes from. It's actually not dirt. The air turns the oil plug dark brown. Nice, huh?

Do You Need a Prescription Acne Treatment?

Sun, 27 Apr 2014 20:05:15 +00002014-04-27T20:05:15Z

We've all done it -- jumping from one OTC treatment to another to yet another, desperately seeking results.

While OTC acne products can be effective for some people, they aren't the best choice for everyone. Many people will need a prescription medication to get their acne under control.
