How to clear your acne now and learn how to stay clear.

As a teenager, you think you are going to grow out of your acne (which sometimes happens). And once you hit your twenties, you think that acne will finally be behind you. But many of us find that acne persists into our thirties, forties, and beyond. Confused, we hit department store counters or visit dermatologists, looking for the one product or treatment that will solve our embarrassing acne problem.

Sadly, the products don’t work. They only drain your time and pocketbook. 

After years working with clients in my spa Be Smooth, I have found that less is more with acne, less washing, less harsh products mean more of a healthier skin.

My consultation starts with looking at your skin and your lifestyle, it quicky helps me figure out the culprit that aggravates your acne, then I will explain why you have acne and get you started on a simple home regimen that may include home peels and extractions.

Face Reality Skin Care™ acne products are state-of-the-art skin care products containing the highest concentrations of active ingredients you can find without a prescription.

First, let’s bury the myths of what acne is not:
It is not due to dirty skin.
It is not due to eating chocolate.
It is not due to sexual frustrations.
It is not just a teenage problem.
So if these aren’t the reasons, then

Q. Why do I have acne?
A. Acne is an actual disease of the pores. It can be caused by certain drugs, medications or exposure to certain chemicals and sometimes an inherited tendency. Dead skin cells are shedding much too quickly in the pore. It forms a plug along with sebum and hair and this is where the problem begins. If the body doesn’t see the plug as an invader, then it remains as a noninflamed lesion, aka blackhead. If it does, then it forms into pimples, pustules and cysts.

Q. I wash my face a lot – why do I still break out?
A. Acne is formed below the surface of the skin and cannot be washed away. Overwashing actually aggravates acne by tightening the skin and traping more debris. To clear acne, you need clinical-strength products that are designed to penetrate the pore, exfoliate the dead skin cells and kill the acne bacteria.

Q. How do I control my acne?
A. Your acne can be controlled through the continued use of Face Reality products and corrective in-clinic treatments for at least the first 12 weeks. Many people see a dramatic difference in their acne in the first month. Once your acne is under control, you must continue to use the products to keep clear. Unfortunately, acne cannot be cured, only controlled.

Q. Why Face Reality acne products?
A. Face Reality Skin Care has developed products that are specifically for the type of acne that you have. Adjustments are made to your regimen to make sure that your skin does not over adapt to the homecare regimen, pushing it to clear but not irritating or over-drying your skin. This is the fastest way to get your skin clear.

Q. Do I need facial treatments?
A. Idealy yes but if you do not have an estheticain near by I will help you with home extractions so your skin clears more quickly.

Q. How do I get started?
A. answer the questionnaire bellow and send selfie we will analyze your skin and type of acne. From there they will design a product and treatment regimen designed for your specific skin and acne type.

"I have been using Face Reality acne products for over two years now and not only has my face cleared but I actually get compliments on my skin! I have tried Proactiv™ and many OTC and dermatologist-prescribed acne products and none of the products have left me with the skin I have now.”

“You guys rock and I tell everyone I see who has acne about you. Thank you so much!”

What is a Face Reality Certified Acne Specialist?

Face Reality Acne Clinic was launched in 2005 by Laura Cooksey, an esthetician in Northern California, who has specialized in treating acne since 1990. Laura developed her skills by studying with the renowned Dr. James E. Fulton. She has earned a nationwide reputation for her remarkable results in treating acne; and has been sought after by skin care specialists to teach her methods and share her knowledge.

A skin care professional who becomes Face Reality Certified is someone who has studied Laura’s modality and passed a test to indicate their proficiency. Only when they become certified will Face Reality allow someone to sell and professionally use their acne products. The Face Reality Acne Specialist then also has the support from the team at Face Reality Acne Clinic when they come across a particularly difficult or unusual case of acne or similar skin condition.

Face Reality has honed its methods and products through helping to clear thousands of acne sufferers of all ages and ethnicities. Although most of these people had already tried prescription topical products, antibiotics, laser and blue light therapy, Accutane™ and a myriad of over-the-counter products, they had not gotten and stayed clear until they found Face Reality Acne Clinic. Face Reality continues to research, experiment and conduct clinical trials to continually improve their modality and share the information with its Acne Specialists community.
