Ignoring the Heart on Your Sleeve

How many pimples does it take to qualify as acne? Believe it or not, if you have five or more pimples a month, you have acne and should focus on treating your blemishes first and foremost. Ignoring breakouts in deference to other skin concerns will aggravate skin, and can make acne worse and actually accelerate skin aging. If you’re battling breakouts, make controlling acne your first priority.

Take the PerSKINality Test to see if you qualify.

The Legacy Begins

Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields met during their dermatology residency at Stanford University School of Medicine. There, they heard a compelling message from their mentor, the director of the Dermatology Department: Find your purpose and make a difference or be confined to a career that’s ordinary. Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields interpreted this message as an imperative:

Go forth and change the rules. And skincare has never been the same since.

When the Doctors started their own practices, they observed that the challenges of adult acne were generally being dismissed by the medical community. Despite the fact so many women struggled with this condition that typically lasted for years and had a profound impact on their self-esteem, little was being done in terms of treatment or education about how to control adult acne.

Take control of your acne and treat the visible signs of aging with our UNBLEMISH Regimen and ANTI-AGE Night Renewing Serum Combo Pack.

MYTH: Chocolate, pizza and French fries cause acne.

“FACT: The overall correlation between diet and acne is still unclear, so it’s best to use common sense. If certain foods consistently seem to make you break out, you should avoid them. for example, some people are supersensitive to foods with high iodine content such as shellfish, dried fish, and seaweed. Importantly eating healthy will always serve you well and help your body resist the effects of inflammation and stress. As we like to say, “What’s eating you may be more important than what you’re eating.” Write your skin a prescription for change.

“When I was a teen, someone told me that brewer’s yeast was good for acne because of the vitamin B in it. For the sake of clear skin, I drank a scoop of it in water every day, but it tasted horrible and caused my skin to flush. After a few months, I realized it wasn’t helping a bit. This illustrates the desperate means I was willing to take for the sake of clear skin.” Dr. Katie Rodan

MYTH: “I’ve been on the phone all day, so I”m getting acne along my jawline.”

“FACT: Constant pressure and perspiration on an area may indeed contribute to irritation that leads to inflammation inside your pores and ultimately to breakouts”. Write your skin a prescription for change.

MYTH: “My daughter doesn’t wash her face enough, so she’s breaking out.”

“FACT: Actually, maybe she’s washing her face too much and causing oil rebound”. Write your skin a  prescription for change.

“Rosacea is characterized by intense and frequent flushing or blotch, redness, the appearance of “broken blood vessels” on the cheeks, chin, and nose, and in most cases, acne-like pimples. In fair-skinned people, particularly of Scottish, Irish, and English descent, early signs of rosacea may be the pink, flushed cheeks of youth. Eventually, rosacea progresses to a permanent redness of the mid face, cheeks, nose, and chin, along with pustules and red inflammatory acne bumps. Rosacea is often incorrectly referred to as adult acne, but it lacks the comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) of acne vulgaris.

The extract causes of rosacea are unknown, but it is clear that it runs in families. If you suffer from rosacea, you probably also have some components of sensitive skin. Additionally, we believe hormones play a strong role, as many women notice rosacea flares when they are menstruating or during the menopausal years. There are also theories that suggest an infectious component such as H. pylori bacteria or Demodex folliculorum, a certain type of microscopic mite, may play a role. This mite, a normal resident in human skin, lives in hair follicles. Two recent studies revealed that the mites were significantly more numerous in facial skin samples of people with rosacea than in people without the condition. In addition, the mite population peaked on the skin samples of these patients in the spring, when rosacea tends to flare up.

We can sometimes identify pre-rosacea in teenagers and women in there early twenties. They may come to see us with concerns about acne, but because of the “flush and blush” syndrome, we know they are experiencing the early signs of rosacea. Like acne, rosacea in not curable, so we advice our patients to educate themselves, avoid the triggers, and treat the symptoms in an effort to minimize and frequency of flare-ups.”
