More than 60 million Americans suffer from some form of acne breakouts. Acne affects more than 80% of all teenagers at some time in their lives, and clogged pores comprise more than 25% of all visits to the dermatologist. Acne has hit epidemic proportions in adults, especially women. What used to be just a teenage problem is now a real challenge in people's lives.
FIRST, LET'S BURY COMMON ACNE MYTHS:
Acne is NOT due to dirty skin. Acne is NOT due to eating greasy foods. Acne does not only affect teens.
WHAT IS ACNE?
Acne is a disease of the pores. It can be caused by certain drugs, medications, or exposure to chemicals, but most acne is an inherited tendency. Dead skin cells shed too quickly in the acne-prone pore forming a plug along with sebum and hair. This is where the problem begins. If the body doesn't see the plug as an invader, it remains as a non-inflamed lesion, also known as a blackhead. If it does, the plug turns into pimples, pustules, and cysts.
HOW DO I CONTROL IT?
Your acne can be controlled through the continued use of Face Reality products and corrective in-clinic treatments. In as little as 12 weeks you will see a dramatic improvement in your overall complexion. Many people see significant results in the first month. Once your acne is under control, it's important to follow your Face Reality regimen to keep your skin clear. Unfortunately, acne cannot be cured, only controlled.
WHY FACE REALITY PRODUCTS AND TREATMENTS?
Face Reality has gone to great lengths to ensure product formulations are acne-safe. Face Reality products contain only the highest-quality, skin nourishing ingredients, resulting in significant benefits beyond just treating acne.
