    Causes of Acne

    I’m Mic, and today we are going to delve into the mystery that is acne. We are going to look deep inside the pore and see how acne progresses on the microbial level, and we’re also going to look at some of the well-studied dietary triggers of acne and hopefully get some answers. Acne is one of the largest health mysteries today. It is the most common skin condition on Earth. In western societies, it affects about 85% of teenagers, and now, nearly half of people into their thirties. And they had to go ahead and name it acne vulgaris, like, “Your face is vulgar. I’m a scientist.” Yet as…

    GM Collins Oxygen Acne Facial

    Today we’re going to do the high-frequency oxygenating facial. We’re starting with the skin, we’re just checking the hydration levels underneath the skin as well as on the surface. Sometimes underneath skin tells a different story from what the surface tells us. I’m gonna double cleanse. All over. (“Simple Gifts” by Jeffery Smith) Double cleansing is perfect for the skin. The first cleanse removes all the dirt. The second cleaner gets right into all the little crevices. And it will all be well. We gonna open all the pores. This is a glycolic peel I’m placing on the skin now. It’s going to take a layer of skin off so…

    👀 Doctor Reveals Ways For Eliminating Acne, Zits & Pimples From Your Face & Body – by Dr Sam Robbins

    Hi, I’m Dr Sam Robbins, Growing up, I used to get zits – like any teenager. However, I remember this one time when I got this massive mountain of a pimple on the crease of my nose. However, the real problem was that the girl I liked, pointed to it in front of other girls and said “geez Sam, what the hell is that on your nose, that’s disgusting!…” or something like that. Everyone laughed and I played it cool and kinda laughed as well, but it hurt. It was embarrassing.

    I Woke Up With Acne!

    When I was about in the fifth grade, I started getting acne. Like just one day out of nowhere, I just got really terrible acne all over my forehead. It wasn’t red or anything like that it was just like bumps, and people would just look at me and stare at my acne and would laugh sometimes, and I felt really uncomfortable. I just wanted to hide, I didn’t want anyone to see my acne. I thought that I would get colored contacts so they wouldn’t look at my acne, they would look at my eyes. So I got colored contacts and different eyes were different. They would look at…

    Microdermabrasion & Acne Scars | Acne Treatment

    So for those of you who don’t know what microdermabrasion is, it’s a modality that uses either crystals or industrial grade diamonds to smooth the face and it takes off the very top layers of the skin. Now that sounds scary but it’s actually not painful. It can be helpful in improving the texture of the skin but unfortunately it doesn’t do really much for acne scarring. If you have true acne scarring, you have the following options: You could use fractional ablative lasers like Fraxel, Affirm, or Ultrapulse, or a procedure called subcision. Subcision is when a dermatologist takes a needle and tries to break up the fibrous bands…

    How Does Your Diet Affect Acne? | Acne Treatment

    This is absolutely one of my favorite topics. Some people say that diet and acne are not related, and I think that’s crazy. How can what you put in your body not affect the largest organ in your body? It just makes no sense. A good diet is very important in limiting acne. What is a good diet? To keep it very simple, a good diet is one that’s high in vegetables and low in white, processed foods. It’s a diet I like to call the anti-inflammatory diet, and a great example of this can be found on Dr. Weil’s website. Basically what I suggest for people that have acne…
