Acne is definitely a four-letter word for people who suffer with lt is an inherited disorder of the pores pores that want to sludge up with dead skin cells much like a clogged drain in your sink. Normal pores shed about one layer of dead skin cells per day inside the pore. The acne-prone pore sheds up to five iayers of dead skin cells per day and the body just can't keep up. This forms blackheads or congestion under the skin; and if bacteria are present {which just loves to feed on the dead skin cells and oil}, you will get inflamed pimples or pustules. There are two types of acne (or sometimes a combination of the which type you are:



Your esthetician will determine

Skin is sensitive and reactive to products

Acne is a mysterious disorder, but one thing lS for sure - it can be controlled with the right combination of products used in the correct way. Just as in a clogged drain, the pore must be treated with products that unclog it and kill the acne bacteria. The Face Reality Skin Care system has what you need to do just this. The Face Reality Skin Care System will have your acne under control in about three to four months depending on your type of acne. lt combines the power of pharmaceutical-grade homecare products that are custornized for your type of acne and skin with a series of bi-monthly treatments that facilitate the clearing of your skin. You will be taught about other aggravating factors that rnake you break out - foods, medications, cosmetics, stress, and common ingredients in skin care formulations that might be clogging your pores{even professional and prescription productsl}. Your progress will be closely monitored by a Face Reality Certified Acne Specialist who will make sure you have the best regimen for your skin - making adjustments, if necessary, to get your skin healthy and clear in the fastest way possible.


the process of achieving clear skin you will want to come in every two weeks for treatments and for homecare adjustments. Treatments do the following:
As you go through


1. 2. i. 4.

Exfoliate the skin so that home-core product con penetrate the Pore more eosilY. Hydrate the skin, if needed, so that the skin is receptive to your home-care regimen. The products also tend to dry out the skin somewhot as you ore getting used to
them. Extract existing scne impoctions. Kill ocne bacteria inside the pore.

You are required to give 24 hours notice if you need to reschedule your appointment or there will charge a $50 for a missed appointment with the exception of emergencies or if you are ill.
Please reschedule if you are ill.

Each treatment has a specific focus for what the skin needs at the time of treatment. Sometimes the skin will need more hydration, other times it will need more anti-bacterial action. Your esthetician will anolyze your skin at the beginning of every treatment fo sssess which treotment would serve You best,

Schedule your appointments at least 48 hours before any special events or projects where appearance is a factor. Treatments may cause some minor redness

and/or sensitivity. lf there is a problem with any of your products, cali anytime - someone will get back to you as soon as
possible. Bring in any new oral or topical medications prescribed by outside sources, for ony medical reason.

The other reason for seeing you every two weeks is to assess your horne care regimen. There will almost always be changes made to how you use your home care every two weeks to make sure you stay ahead of your skin's ability to adapt to products. Your clear skin expert will want to check and make sure that your home care is not too strong and irritating so you can achieve that balance between getting you clear as fast as possible without irritating and dehydrating your skin.

IMPORTANT! **lf, far some reoson, you con't mske it to yaur appointment every two weeks, you will need to call or email us for your next step in your bomecore regimen.

the adrenal gland promotes

oil production which leads to clogged pores.

No Picking or Squeezing! Instead, rub ice on pustules and pimples for a couple of minutes, twice a day.

The following supplements have been found

to be useful in aiding your recovery from acne. Your esthetician may make recommendations based on the type of acne you have.

Zinc Monomethionine The most bioavailable form of zinc that acts directly as an anti-inflammatory. Many people with acne have low levels of zinc in their body; and supplementing with zinc has been shown to reduce severity of cysts and inflamed lesions. Omega 3 Fish Oils These are good fats that also act as an anti-inflammatory in the body. While recomrnended for all acne sufferers, they are particularly beneficial for women whose breakouts are linked to PMS. Omega oils also positively alter sebum production in the skin improving radiance and resilience of the skin.

Good bacteria that colonize the digestive tract and the skin. They can help people who have been on long-term antibiotics {both oral and topical). These good bacteria compete with the pathogenic bacteria and can help improve the incidence of breakouts. Good quality yogurts are a good choice or your esthetician can recommend a good brand available for purchase.

Pore Clogging Ingredients in Skin Care

Do not ever put anything on youf skin or your hair without checking the ingrdienB first, even if it says "won't clog pores" or "noncomedogenic" on the bottle. govemment agency oversees this so skincare companies can claim their products promote clear skin and have pore cloggers in their ingredient deck.

**Nctursl oils csn

be some of the atorst offenders like cocod butter dnd coconut oil which are found in mdny


skin care lines.

Other oils such as jojoba, olive and lanolin are mildly comedogenic and can be a problem if formulated with other comedogenic ingredients. Some prescription products like the cream form of Retin A have pore cloggers. Many over-the-counter acne medications also have pore clogging ingredients.

"Oil-free' products can be comedogenic.

These are all ingredients that can agBravate acne. The higher the number assigned to it, the more propensity it has to clog your pores.

The best makeup is one that does not contain comedotenic in8redients. Loose powder, mineral make-up tends


be the safest choice but still should be checked.

Bare Minerals Original Formula loose powder foundation is a safe choice; however the newer Bare Minerals Matte is NOT a safe choice

* it contains ActiveSoil

Complex that is causing breakouts for most users. Any pressed or liquid products also should be checked for pore-clogging ingredients. We do not recommend any of the pressed Bare Minerals blushes, bronzers or veils.

Follow the Timetable

Benzoyl Peroxide can be extremely irritating and drying. During the initial weeks, you will experience some dryness, redness, itching, flaking, tightness or mild peeling. This is temporary and will subside as your skin adapts to the product. Try to put up with some peeling as it will eventually go away; but if you get "uncomfortably dry", then let us know.

Not on Eye or Lower Neck Do not use Acne Med on your neck or eye area as the tissue is too delicate and will irritate the skin

too much.
No Eye Cream Do not use eye cream or moisturizer around the eyes or neck because the acne Med will migrate through the cream and cause irritation and possible swelling.


Allow your Acne Med to dry before going to bed. lf your eyelids get irritated, try changing your pillowcase more often. When you are wearing acne med all night, it will get on the pillowcase.
Smile Lines This area tends to be the most sensitive area on the face and will be the first place you see irritation and dryness. You can put a very thin layer of Vaseline on this area to occlude it for a few days and then resume product use there.

Not When Working Out Do not wear Acne Med when you expect to perspire, as in exercising or physical labor or getting hot in the sun. lf you are wearing it, wash it off or it will irritate your skin.

Will Bleach Fabric Acne Med will bleach fabric, so we suggest wearing a white shirt or T-shirt when using it. Also, use a white washcloth when removing from your skin, Use white pillowcases when you start wearing it overnight. Make sure and wash your hands with soap after using it to avoid bleaching towels.
Allergic Reaction
Allergies to benzoyl peroxide are rare but do occur occasionally. Dry skin does not constitute an allergic reaction; rather an allergy is characterized by itching, swelling or burning associated with a rash similar to a mild case of poison ivy dermatitis. lf an allergic reaction occurs, stop using Acne Med and contact us immediatelv. Use Religiously! lf you skip a day or two or only spot treat, it gives a chance for acne to form. You will never get clear if you skip your homecare.

Birth control for acne simnlified

Birth control pills are widely used today and prescribed often as a means to control acne. Most pills can have the potential to cause acne and weight gain in those susceptible. Typically the pills are divided up as estrogen or

progestin dominant and have varying degrees of androgenic (testosterone like) effects. As a general rule of thumb, pills with the potential for higher androgenic symptoms should be avoided for people prone to acne because they promote breakouts. As an acne sufferer it is important to speak with your doctor about a selecting a pill that is higher in estrogen and lower in androgen potncy.
Th most commonly prescribed pills in this category are:

Diane 35{Dianette)


Ortho tri cyclen

Nevicon modicon

Ortho evra Mircette


It is best to avoid the following pills that are high in androgen activity and low in estrogen. which are some of the following:
Loestrin Estrotrep Fe
Levlen Alesse

Ovral Norestrin

Nuvo ring
Mirena ring Depoprovera shot

Only you and your doctor can determine what pill is right for you. The above is just a basic Auideline that should be used to initiate a conversation between you and your physician. If you are considering taking birth control pills, it is

important to know that they are associated with a high risk of blood clots, weight garn, nausea, mood changes, depression and breasi tenderness. Serious side effects include strokes, digestive issues and embolism.
Finaily, it is entirely possible to treat acne without going on the pill at all. If you have no underlying health issues ihat require you to be on bifth control and are considering taking birth control pills only to control your acne, please feel free to talk with one of the estheticians to get some additional perspective on how we can help you with the use of

topical products and treatments.

lmportant Information about Zinc

These supplements can upset your stomach. To prevent nausea, always take OptiZinc with food. Zinc is an essential trace element for humans and there is evidence that it is similar to antibiotics in improving the condition of inflamed acne. The effective dosage is not clear. However, most studies indicate

50-100mg {The OptiZinc tablet that we sell are 30MG). We advise you to not take any more than 100mg because excessive zinc may lead to deficiencies in other vitamins and minerals. One of the reasons that we like OptiZinc is that it contains copper and copper is one of the minerals that can be depleted by taking zinc supplements. We are also recommending that you discontinue taking the zinc once you are completely

clear. We are not

recommending this as a preventative. lf you would like more information to help you make decisions about the benefits, proper dosage and best formulation of zinc supplements, we highly recommend doing your own resear.h on the internet.
