Acne.org has always relied on word of mouth to get the word out. Lately we’ve been receiving lots of emails from people telling us they found Acne.org through watching YouTube videos that mention Acne.org. I took a look and there are lots of people posting videos on YouTube sharing their experience with The Regimen or giving their opinions on Acne.org products. If you have a few minutes sometime, please feel free to add your voice by uploading a YouTube video yourself. Feel free to be as creative as you want. Here are a few of the types of videos people have been posting:
Sharing their opinion and experience on The Regimen
Showing before & after pictures to share their success
Doing weekly updates as they proceed with The Regimen so people can watch their progress in real time
Thanks to everyone who has been posting on YouTube. It is a great way of letting people know The Regimen is the real deal.
Note: All of the YouTube videos which mention Acne.org are unsponsored.
A while back I mentioned that I wanted to get more of you guys represented on Acne.org in the form of videos of people performing the face, back, body, and neck Regimen, as well as some other stuff. I went ahead and made a new self-service page of Acne.org for this purpose. Please take a look if you have a sec. I haven’t launched it yet because I’m still uncertain about the product giveaway part of it. Here’s what I’m struggling with…
1. Do you think I should give away products in exchange for people submitting videos?
2. If so, should I give away more or less than I list on the page?
I would love your input on this before I go live with it. I don’t want to say any more because I don’t want to color your opinion either way. Please just give me your gut read if you don’t mind.
I finally got a new how-to Regimen video filmed showing me using the new Acne.org Moisturizer with licochalcone. Feel free to take a look and please, don’t be intimidated by my high level editing skillz. 😉 Heh. Not!
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.
Yesterday was officially the first day of summer. In honor of summer’s arrival we are re-airing our Sun Week series. We’ll be covering everything from how the sun affects acne, Vitamin D, choosing an SPF that won’t break you out, chemical exfoliants, and hats. Hope you all enjoy Summer 2009!
