There are lots of myths and misunderstandings about acne so there's still a need for education. To be blunt, having acne sucks. That's all there is to it. It doesn't matter if you're a teenager, a millennial or even middle-aged it still totally sucks to have to deal with acne.
On top of that, acne messes with your self-confidence because when you think you don't look good, you don't feel good about yourself.
So, we get it. People will go to desperate measures to "fix" their acne problem. If you've ever made an "emergency" appointment with the dermatologist because you just can't deal with the "mess" your skin is in, you know what we're talking about.
If the fact that acne is the most common skin condition in the US doesn't surprise you, maybe this fact will: the most commonly prescribed treatments are retinoids combined with antibiotics. Sadly, both can have pretty significant side-effects.
Retinoids cause dryness and irritation. Dryness is exactly what acne prone skin does not need. And almost every antibiotic has this on its label: "stomach upset, diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting may occur."
Unless you get prescribed Accutane. That one has an even more impressive side effect profile. You can check that out here.
But hey, anything is better than a face full of zits, right? Actually, no!
So why in the world do doctors prescribe these things? Well, because they can work and people go to the doctor's to get their problem "fixed". Writing a prescription is how most doctor's "fix" things and they want to please you, so you get a prescription. Never mind side effects.
But guess what? There are other things that work that don't have side effects! Retinoids are prescribed because they unclog pores and can decrease inflammation. Exfoliation unclogs pores. Our Green Tea with Tea Tree Oil Facial not only unclogs pores but it also decreases inflammation! But instead of the dryness and irritation that can occur with retinoids, you get incredibly soft, smooth skin! Also, you'll notice a difference right away. Retinoids take 1-2 months before you'll notice any improvement.
Antibiotics work because they kill bacteria. Green Tea and Tea Tree Oil also have anti-bacterial properties, but what they don't have is side effects.
Soft smooth, clear skin OR side effects. You choose.
Our Green Tea with Tea Tree Facial is a simple solution to a serious problem. It's all-natural, effective and it will leave your skin feeling and looking amazing.
