My Experience With ACNEASE: A Review
My Experience With ACNEASE: A Review & Photos
September 15 2012

I’ve said it before and I’m not embarrassed to say it again… I have hormonal acne issues.  Being a beauty blogger who doesn’t have the slightest idea how to use photoshop, (I’m trying to learn, and it’s seriously like I’m trying to teach my grandpa how to use “the twitter”) I try to keep my face as under control as possible.  With products from Reviva Labs and Murad, it’s been pretty easy.  BUT.  I test A LOT of skin care.  And sometimes different products will just make a break out happen.

As I said, my acne is hormone related.  It’s all along the jaw and chin area.  (Having kids does a lot more to your body than stretching out that gut!).  I’m always in the market to shock my face into submission.  So, when the opportunity to try out AcnEase came about, I jumped on it much like I jump on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Cassandra Bankson, the teen whose makeup routine to cover up her acne-plagued skin made her into a YouTube sensation, started the next chapter of her life, landing a spot on the runway during New York Fashion Week.

A confident Bankson walked the runway at the Stacey Igel's "Boy Meets Girl" show in New York City Wednesday night, proudly putting a past of being bullied for her acne-ridden skin behind her.

"I'm a small town girl who sits in her living room and films videos all day and now...I'm in New YorkFashion Week," Bankson said backstage. "It's still a dream. I am so thankful."

The 19-year-old first achieved Internet stardom after posting makeup tutorials on YouTube with her concealing tips, revealing how she covered her acne-ridden skin before heading out to face the world. In the videos, Bankson talks to her 45 million viewers, first in full makeup, but then strips off the layers of foundation, concealer and powder to reveal pimples and blemishes.

Good Sun & Bad Sunscreen: 2 Myths About Sun Protection By Dr. Agnes Olszewski
June 20 2012
Most of us are led to believe that if we slather on sunscreen  in the morning and then stay out on the beach all day long, our skin is protected. Unfortunately, this is incorrect.  Learning about proper sun protection and sunscreens will keep you and your skin safe!

Myth 1:  The sun is bad for you

Fact:  No, the sun is NOT BAD for you.

In fact, the sun is healthy if you take precautions. Ultraviolet light from the sun comes in two main wavelengths: UVA and UVB. They are quite different in respect of the risk they create for your health. UVB is the “good” sunlight and UVA is the “bad” one.   UVB helps you produce vitamin D that is extremely important for your overall wellbeing, supporting the health of your bones, muscles, skin, eyesight, heart and immune system. UVA can cause free radical damage.

Now that I have your attention, let’s talk about what you eat and how it affects your skin.

Diet alone isn’t the cause of skin problems like acne, but it can clearly exasperate its symptoms. The good news is, it can also help in eliminating them.

Acne is a manifestation of an internal imbalance that makes our sebaceous glands go “bonkers” and produce too much sebum (skin oil) that, together with dirt, creates an inviting  “playground” for bacteria, and results in inflammation (cysts and pimples) or less dramatic, but still unwelcomed, whiteheads and blackheads.

Want your skin to glow for Valentine’s Day? You still have two days left to get your skin looking its best for the Cupid’s Day! Here are some of Dr. Agnes’ quick tips on DIY treatments designed to provide you with instant results especially good for troubled, acne prone skin. These treatments are good for all types of complexion both women and men.

Take your Skin to the Spa (at Home!) Try to do the following treatments at least twice before Tuesday, and in this order; steam first, followed by the astringent, lastly the rejuvenation.

Steam Bath: Steaming is very good to keep skin clean and blemish free, as it can remove excess sebum and dirt and deeply cleanse clogged pores. It also allows the black heads and whiteheads to be pushed out easily and therefore avoid pimples. Steam will also improve circulation, giving you a healthy glow.  Do the steam facial once before Valentine’s Day, but NOT on the big day.
