“Spot treating acne makes as much sense as brushing only the tooth with the cavity while ignoring the rest of your mouth. For a long-term solution, you must treat your entire face to stop the process that is happening deep inside your skin’s thousands of pores. The acne cycle actually starts two to three weeks before you ever see a blemish, which is why spot treating a pimple that’s already surfaced doesn’t work … you’re only addressing the end of the cycle, not the root cause.

Remember, pimples are just the ultimate manifestation of a complex and ongoing process triggered and exacerbated by multiple factors such as hormones, stress, high glycemic diets, clogged pores and bacteria, so taking a multi-pronged approach daily is essential to getting and keeping your acne under control”.

Breakouts? Unpredictable? Unreasonable? Unfair? Take control with our UNBLEMISH Regimen. Clinically proven to combat the entire acne cycle, this sophisticated regimen helps unclog pores, clears breakouts and calms your complexion to keep pimples, blackheads and post-acne marks from making an unwelcome appearance on your face—and in your life.

“Sweet treats left on desks and doorsteps may be kindly meant, and your mouth will likely thank you for indulging—but your face won’t.  It’s true the old notion that chocolate causes acne is more of a superstition than a scientific truth, but it’s also true that high glycemic index foods in general (such as cookies and milk) do contribute to acne breakouts.

Diets high in refined carbohydrates seem to affect hormone levels which in turn increase oil production by sebaceous glands. And in addition to upping your breakout odds, the plethora of seasonal culinary pleasures like salty snacks and alcoholic drinks can also cause bloating and redness. So, take it easy on the treats and the vino, and your skin, not to mention your waistline, will show appreciation for your moderation”. DermRF

“Extra brushing on the tooth that already has a cavity isn’t going to make it go away. But good dental hygiene daily, morning and night, will prevent cavities from forming. Skincare works just the same”. DermRF

“Of course, you want to treat the wrinkle or blemish you do see, but don’t just treat the spot, get at the source of these issues before they start by using your anti-aging or acne regimen in full every day and everywhere to prevent new issues from appearing”. DermRF
