Melissa, the woman from MSNBC who interviewed me this morning, would like to talk to a few people who have taken antibiotics to no avail. If that’s you, please feel free to email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. She’s cool and easy to talk to.
I spent a lot of time working with the best formulators in the U.S.A. and together we made the best salicylic acid I’ve ever tried, but I’m coming to realize that there is only so much you can do with salicylic acid. I just don’t think it’s that great of an acne fighting ingredient, no matter how much you bump it up with auxiliary ingredients. In the end, I prefer AHA.
Light therapy is an interesting new form of acne therapy. In my opinion, it’s not quite there yet, but I’ll stay on top of the latest research in this area.
Chemical exfoliants like retinoids (Retin-A, tazorac, etc.), alpha hydroxy acids (glycolic acid, lactic acid), and salicylic acid, can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. Be extra aware of sun protection if you are using any of these products.
Hey you guys. I’ve been swamped around here and haven’t had a half hour free to do a video. I miss it. I’ll try to get back to it on Monday.
I wanted to mention that few people have mentioned that their jojoba oil has arrived with cloudiness or particulates in it. This is normal and to be expected when jojoba oil gets very cold or freezes. The oil is still good and will work just the same, so no worries.
Also, Brandy sent me an interesting video regarding doxycycline, an antibiotic given for acne. Evidently it can get stuck in the esophagus and cause ulcers. Just something to potentially be aware of.
Have a great weekend everybody!
