Good skin care does, but you also get freckles, moles, skin tags, or other skin diseases, from the sun.
Taking care of your skin, is a lifetime commitment, not just a day or a week or a year.
Any kind of facial wash, you’re leaving something toxic behind, it’s not a matter of convenience, it’s a billion dollar business that can do more harm than good to your acne. And sometimes we feel entirely virtuous about our skin-care regimen because it’s full of SPF– all year round!– and cleansers and such. But the truth is, we may not realize that we’re overdoing (or underdoing) something that can lead to the very thing we’re trying to avoid: dryness, breakouts, accelerated aging, New York dermatologist Dr. Jeannette Graf. (I’ve been giving this same advice for decades, but she’s proof enough!).
Take a shower everyday, use washcloth to exfoliate and bath & body wash. Hydrogen peroxide does wonders for acne. Visit their website for more tips & other uses. ONLY $1.
Acne medication could worsen what ever allergies you have, so instead of trying out one product after another, you’re actually spreading it around.
The less products you use, the better for your skin. Use a bath & body wash like Suave, Irish Spring, Dove Body & Face wash in the shower, use a washcloth. Treat your face like the rest of your body, take a shower everyday or wash your face everyday.
The secret is keeping your face clean and oil-free. I also don’t use liquid on my face for anything, and very little moisturizer, not even a dime size. Since my face is not dry. Good skin also comes from your good genes. Increase your fresh fruits & vegetables 3-5 servings per day. And programmed your mind to do this day after day, for the rest of your life.
The beauty industry is a billion dollar business, they know acne is everyone’s problem, but instead of saying soap is drying for you, they have to invent an acne product that can worsen the skin as MANY TEENAGERS have experienced during hormonal change, but as you get older those are completely a waste of time & money!
Sometimes just the oil on your face from make up and lotions, even from your hair can travel to your face causing acne to come out. Others, from stress, hormones & diet or foods.

All the vitamins & minerals you need for good skin care comes from all the healthy foods you eat from Mother Nature.
If acne’s a problem, your pillowcases may be part of the cause. “They collect skin oil, dead skin cells, bacteria, and excess night creams,” says David Bank, a professional Dermatology @ Columbia University/New York-Presbyterian Hospital.”But if nothing changed by 6 week the product will never work for you. Time to move on.”
I’ve been protecting myself from the sun since I was 9.
1. Because I don’t want to look like a farmer.2. Because I get too hot.3. I want to look like movie stars & models, they have blemish-free skins.
4. I don’t want to look like an old prune or get moles on my neck & face like my aunts.
No matter, I still got Discoid Lupus (Google it), caused from the sun. It took 12 years for them to fade. Tried all kinds of lotions that were prescribed to me, and none of them worked. More & more now I protect myself and I take my wide brim hat everywhere I go, or use an umbrella. In Asia, they use umbrella all the time. Here in the States, people started to catch on, and I see people walking w/umbrella, they are used on the beach, and they sell patio umbrellas. It was invented for a reason and also to protect us from getting skin cancer.
The sun is more powerful than most people think!
