Sulfer
Sulfer
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 09, 2011

If you suffer from acne, cystic acne, or pimples, you should be very familiar with the correct way to hide your blemishes. Look for makeup with blemish-fighting properties and when you’re not covering up, you should treat. At the top of your shopping list should be topical treatment products containing sulfur.

Sulfur absorbs quickly into the skin and won’t cause any irritation or redness. It usually works as fast, if not faster than other ingredients more common for anti-acne. Sulfur is also great because it layers with makeup, moisturizers, and pretty much anything else you put on top of it without any peeling. In general, products with 4% to 8% sulfur are the best for your skin.

You can also mix sulfur treatment products with your daily moisturizer to add an extra bit of help to your daily routine and apply your makeup on top. Your makeup will look great, you won’t have any flaking, and you’ll be treating your skin all at the same time.

Butt Pimples
Butt Pimples
MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011

Nobody likes pimples, especially if they are on your booty.  The reason you may see a blemish now and again is because of sweat buildup clogging the pores.  To avoid having the occasional breakout here’s some helpful tips:

-Wear breathable cotton undies

-Lather the backside with a gentle antibacterial body wash and frequently exfoliate to remove dead skin

-Try topically applying a benzoyl-peroxide gel or glycolic-acid formula to help dry out the pimple

If the pimples keep coming back you may want to visit your dermatologist.  How do you stay pimple butt free??

Problem: Pillow Acne
Problem: Pillow Acne
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 02, 2009

Problem:  Pillow Acne.  Yes it’s true.  If you don’t take off your make-up or cleanse your skin thoroughly before bed, you could experience breakouts.  Solution: Use only cotton fiber sheets.  Cotton fibers help to soak up excess oil and debris that can be left behind by other linen fabrics.  Flip your pillow every other night and spray anti-bacterial spray (for skin) are great to be use opposite the side you are sleeping on (so it has time to work).  This will make a major difference in side-skin clarity.

Baby's got back
Baby's got back
FRIDAY, AUGUST 22, 2008

Having clear skin is the foundation to all things beauty. But we focus so much on our faces that we sometimes forget to pay special attention to other parts that can get blemishes too! Especially in the summertime, the back can become the culprit on the skin front. (The sweat from walking around in 100 degree weather just might have something to do with it!) No one wants to have bacne (back acne) when they’re going out to the pool or in a sexy backless dress. So wash up with Clinique’s soap for face and body or Neutrogena’s Acne Body Wash that is made to clear up your pores (like a cleanser for your whole body!). Again, nothing is more beautiful than flawless skin!  How do you keep you skin flawless?
