Acne is no longer just a teenage affliction. In fact, dermatologists often refer to it as a woman's disease, and drugstore shelves are filled with acne products specifically geared toward adult women. But how do you choose from the overwhelming selection of treatments? Which products are appropriate to use as you grow older, become pregnant, or enter menopause? How can you work with a dermatologist to get the most out of prescription acne medications?
Lydia Preston answers all of these questions and more, with up-to-date information drawn from her years of reporting on dermatology, as well as her own long personal experience with acne. In Breaking Out, she shares the wisdom of dozens of doctors and scientists who have devoted their careers to studying and treating acne, including:
- Guidelines for buying and using over-the-counter products
- Treatment for acne scars
- Emergency acne remedies and camouflage tips
- Alternative treatments, including herbal remedies, acupuncture, dietary approaches, and ways to unlock the mind-skin connection
No one has to live with acne or its consequences. Breaking Out is an invaluable guide to understanding and combating acne that women of all ages can turn to with confidence.
Unblemished: Stop Breakouts! Fight Acne! Transform Your Life! Reclaim Your Self-Esteem with the Proven 3-Step Program Using Over-the-Counter Medications
Drs. Katie Rodan and Kathy Fields's Proactiv treatment -- the #1 selling acne-care product in America -- has already brought relief to millions. In Unblemished, they debunk the misconceptions about acne and present a revolutionary guide to zapping zits forever.
After years of studying acne treatment and listening to their patients' concerns, Rodan and Fields formulated The Rodan and Fields Approach, which works in three simple steps. Rather than spot-treating blemishes and pimples reactively, their system -- individualized for every skin type, age, and ethnicity -- treats the entire face using a remarkably simple regimen that really works.
Including illustrations, sidebars, and detailed case studies from the doctors' own files, Unblemished is a blueprint to renew self- confidence and glowing, healthy skin.
