Some Cool Acne and Anti-Aging Media References

Keeping up with media placements has become an enormous task. At one point, we even stopped updating our media room page; the number of references is just very large and was making the page too heavy.

Thanks to the media, we have never had to explain much about what we're about... which in a way tells us we're doing it right. J'adore magazine recently dedicated a few lines to talk about two of our best products – Acne Spot Repair and Anti-Aging Formula.

Here's what they had to say about our potent acne cream and anti-aging treatment:

1. MenScience Acne Spot Repair target's existing acne and reduces inflammation and redness. It's fast absorbing & has an invisible application.

2. MenScience Anti-Aging Formula is a dermatological-grade anti-aging treatment that contains ingredients used by doctors to not only prevent but greatly reduce the signs of aging.

I think it's very cool that our community continues to hear about our products from trusted media sources (even when we don't mention all of them).

My personal recommendation is that when you want to learn, for example, about the best acne treatment for your skin, the web is the place to do it. If you already use a skin care line like MenScience, search their site and find out what they offer, and what they have on their blog. If they do have any acne products, read what others are saying about them in the product reviews section. By the time you've finished searching, you will have enough information to make a smart decision about the perfect acne treatment system for your face.

Some Useful Testimonials About Acne Products

I caught up with some of our customers' acne treatment product reviews. Normally I don't mention these here, but people have been talking about it a lot lately. So I thought I'd drop some interesting ones here.

By Irineo from Soledad, CA
I used to have clear skin then stress caught up with me and I been breaking out ever since. So then I went and found the MenSciecne Acne Treatment System, it doesn't leave the skin feeling dry, it works fast, and best of all it improves your skin. I am amazed and stratified with this product. Glad I found it.

By Scott in PA from Erie, PA
I bought this acne treatement as a gift for a friend who has been struggling with acne for several years. He had tried the usual over the counter medications, but nothing seemd to work. He had seen an advertisement for this acne treatment, but thought it was the usual hype for an ineffective product. I decided to fork over the money to give it a try. Within a week of using it, he noticed a big difference. The acne was disappearing on his face and his shoulders and in addition he was no longer plagued with razor bumps, which was also a big problem for him. This was the first acne product that actually worked! The downside: It is expensive and that alone may deter some shoppers. (That is my only criticism.) But it works, and the relief it brought was well worth the cost in this instance!

By NS from Brooklyn, NY
Cleared my skin. Other acne products didn't help, but it has made my complexion clearer, especially with the brown spots from scarring! I was amazed. I would highly recommend!

By Rob from Dallas, TX
As someone who's not afraid to spend a few dollars to clean and protect his skin, I had high hopes for the Acne Therapy cream. Despite being a mid-20s male with clear skin, I, like many others, inevitably get a blemish or two. Unfortunately, my profession does not allow for me to have "face recovery time" before making public appearances. With this cream, blemishes that would linger for days are now gone within a single day-- and sometimes hours!

This is what every man needs in his desk-- just in case something "pops" up before that big meeting or right before he leaves to pick up that hot date.

By RJ from Philadelphia, PA
This stuff is absolutely amazing. I get some pretty nasty zits and they come out of left field. The Acne Spot Repair takes complete care of that. I put it on as soon as I see a pimple starting to form and it instantly starts to work. The Spot Repair has saved me from having to go out in public with some seriously embarrasing zits. This stuff is truely magic!

By Steve from Tucson, AZ
I thought I was using the best until I tried this product. Doesn't dry your skin out or leave dry patches like other acne products. I couldn't get over how quickly I saw results. At 48 I get the occasional breakout and this will now be my "go to" product! Thank you MenScience!

By jp from Canton, OH
Ironically, I have not had the "monster zit" since I bought this product, but it does seem to to the job adequately on my lesser pimples. The fact that I have not broken out is probably a testament to the other excellent menscince products that I use daily on my face.

By CharlieA from Boston, IL
I get frequent large whitehead and this product really gets rid ob them super-fast. It is not cheap, but I have gotten excellent results that I have not gotten with any other product. I apply it 3-4 times per day on a new whitehead and usually i do not need more than those applications for it to dissappear. It absorbs well, but because of the acne medicine make sure you do not get it on your clothes as it can fade these.

By Cycle man from Atlanta, GA
I have normal skin but I tend to breakout regularly at least twice a month. I have been using this product for 4 months and it is the most effective acne treatment I have found to control my acne. Not only have are acne breakouts almost gone, but my skin looks much smoother and the acne marks are disappearing. I use this cream almost daily (I also use the face scrub to cleanse my face and the menscinece face tonic) and I would recommend it as a standard acne prevention measure.

By Olivia the Teacher from Los Angeles, CA
I tried this acne product my husband bought for his own skincare needs, and I noticed a difference in my skin the very next day. This acne product is easy to use, does not dry out your skin, and works!!!!

By Rick from Thousand Oaks, CA
I have been using these acne pads for about two months and have not broken out once. They absorb extra oil on my face but are not drying. I use every day without exception and increase to two or three times a day if I think I might break out. I have tried many acne products and this is the only acne treatment I currently use.

By John from LA, CA
I frequently break out with many small whiteheads on my forehead and this is the only product that has really helped me to control this problem. I start using it over my entire face once a day before I actually breakout and if the whiteheads start to appear then I use 4 or 5 times and it usually makes them go away before they fully develop in a couple of days. This is all I use to control my acne.

By tr0yg from FWB, FL
I have been a devout user of MENSCIENCE products for the last four years and because I've had such success with their lineup, I'm always looking forward to the latest additions in their catalog. My most recent purchase included a bottle of Face Tonic which has been a first for me in more ways than one. With the exception of a mild case of roseacea, I've been fortunate enough not to have any problems when it comes to acne prone skin. Hence, I've never used any facial astringent before (nor have I been one to wash my face at night either). However, I'm in my second week of using the Face Tonic and I have found this is the best way to cleanse before bed. I've never realized how much dirt and grime is in my skin that cant be seen by the human eye. This acne product sucks up dirt and oil like a vacuum and leaves my face feeling "minty fresh" with a slight tingle. I know that sounds corny, but even if you don't have bad acne or oily skin this product is still well worth the investment.

By Brett the college kid from Minneapolis, MN
This acne product is simply amazing. It's easy to use, you can put it on virtually anytime. Cleans off any grime or impurities that may get on your face during the coarse of the day. Doesn't leave a shiny almost greasy look like some cleansers do. Overall a great acne product whether you have acne or not.

So, What is All The Buzz with this Acne Treatment System?

In a way, this is an unplanned continuation of my rant from in one this week's posts on MenScience Feedback from Friends and Family.

An old friend called me yesterday to catch-up on things, and of coarse, we ended up talking about MenScience. Not know anything about our acne products, he was looking for some acne medication suggestions and feedback in Yahoo! ANSWERS when he stumbled upon a recommendation about MenScience Acne Treatment System - apparently there are quite a few people tipping on it. So, he did what most us often do, he did a search in Google for MenScience Acne Treatment System; to his surprise there were 56,300 results for this phrase.

His comment was: "What is All The Buzz with this Acne Treatment System?"

It amazed me that he didn't know anything about it - you'd think that a friend would know about your products... but, in part that's what he called for. Now, his shocker about our acne product line doesn't really stun me at all. I've been following what consumers are saying about the acne treatment in their reviews and the ratings are magnificent. Perhaps the price point has turned some away, but this acne treatment has powerful and effective acne products, and remember, you get what you pay for.

I strongly recommend this acne treatment, it will help you get rid of acne with immediate and long term results. You have nothing lose with our 30-day money back guarantee. Just try it risk free - if you're wholy satisfied, simply return it for a full refund.

Who Tests The Acne Treatments?

For most people with acne, finding an acne treatment or an acne cream is an agitated mission. How does anyone (except another person suffering from acne) know if this acne treatment or product has effective ingredients to clear your skin?

Unquestionably, when you're looking for an acne treatment, you can (and should) read product reviews. That will certainly give you some insight about the products' effectiveness on others. But most acne treatments (and all acne product sites) that I know will talk about how effective their acne medicines are and feature "testimonials" with positive references about the products.

Getting an Unbiased Acne Treatment Review

There are always individuals and sites who will provide Acne Treatment Reviews. Normally, these folks are impartial. Chances are, they simply want to share their experience with others looking for acne products. If they finally found an acne cream that is really effective, what do you think they'll suggest others to use in order to "clear acne skin?"

This is why product reviews can be "very beneficial" for you. You know, the guys that have had severe acne for years and have tried just about every acne treatment medicine available out there. Once an acne product gives them some skin clarity and they start experiencing satisfactory results, the chances are very good that they are going voice their results (and they are the ones who ultimately test the acne treatments).

So let's talk about Acne Treatment Tests. You have probably been in the those shoes: Your skin has been breaking out for some time now. You learn about this pharmaceutical-grade acne medicine. This acne product uses dermatological ingredients that are recommended by dermatologists for acne treatment. After using it for a couple of weeks you start getting the results you've been needing. Chances are you are going to want to recommend this acne treatment to others by posting a review where you found it.

I speak to friends with acne problems about this all the time, and what I constantly hear is no surprise at all. These guys recommend one another acne products and treatments that have helped them clear their skin. There is not a better Acne Treatment Test than this. Different users, with different skin types and hormones, talking about their results using the same acne medicine.

So what about all the testing involved in the development of acne treatment medicines?

I'd like to say "you can trust what the manufacturer says," but there is nothing like testing it for yourself.

Acne Treatments Should You Test

If you really want an honest opinion of an acne treatment, buy acne products that other users are recommending and perform your own test. Tell other individuals with acne problems which medicines work for you. Tell them if you have long experimented with different acne products (or, if you have come up with our own acne treatments) and what has worked for your skin to eliminate acne.

Here are some acne products you'll want to make sure are part of your acne treatment test list:
  • Acne Treatment System - A 3-step acne treatment system clinically developed and recommended by leading dermatologists to eliminate acne permanently.
  • Acne Spot Repair - A prescription-grade acne medicine to get rid of pimples overnight with 10% Benzoyl Peroxide and other professional-grade ingredients to heal blemishes and help reduce inflammation and redness.
  • Advanced Acne Pads - Prescription acne pads for exposed acne with maximum strength Salicylic Acid to completely clear and prevent breakouts and blackheads.
If you plan to test these acne treatments (and you should) or any others, you should provide reviews with some useful tips/suggestions for others to benefit from.

Curing Your Acne Breakouts

Our previous acne posts covered general information about acne and the causes of acne for those of you experiencing frequent breakouts looking for a fast cure, yet effective and definitive acne treatments for your skin. In this segment we present the best acne protocol clinically developed by our skincare experts in this bleb field, along with a practical list of which acne products you should apply to start your own acne treatment cure.

How to cure acne: Starter guidelines for your acne stressed skin:

Learn what each acne product does for your skin.

Distinguishing between acne product ingredients and their general benefits for your skin is very important. Many acne specialized sites concur that both the acne product ingredients and the benefits for the skin have much greater importance in maximizing their benefits.

This includes both general and specific benefits; examples of this include the specified purpose of each acne product like acne treatment/repair/diminish, and specific ingredient benefits such as absorbs into the skin to clear acne-causing bacteria.

Even if you just want to prevent acne, you should still be learning the benefits of every medicine. MenScience acne experts agree that many people wanting to prevent acne are going to acne information web sites; as they want to guarantee not breaking out, and finding the best acne medicine. So if you want to learn how to prevent acne, our acne skin care experts agree - read MenScience's acne treatment recommendations.

Distinguish between acne medicines

According to our acne experts, "Acne is triggered by several factors, including hormone imbalance, overproduction of sebum (the oily substance on the skin) and growth of bacteria (known as P. acnes). For this reason, using gentle, effective acne medicine (not abrasive) is an integral part of an acne treatment as it regularly removes the blockage of dead cells from pores."

One acne medicine that stands out greatly is the Acne Spot Repair. According to feedback from customer reviews, nearly 99% of current customers that have used this zit killer give it 5-stars and say it has become the main acne product in the their acne treatment routine.

Steve, from Tucson, AZ, a 48 year-old male with occasional breakouts - has made this his "go to" acne medicine every time he gets a pimple now. "I thought I was using the best until I tried this product. Doesn't dry your skin out or leave dry patches like other products."

Customize your acne treatment to control and eliminate acne permanently

Before you put together and start using an acne treatment, you need to know what each acne product targets and how it will relate to your skin needs. Ireneo, a customer from Soledad, CA, says, "MenScience Acne Treatment hydrates my skin, minimizes pores, it's soothing, and works effectively. I needed an acne system to clear my skin since I been breaking out from stress."

MenScience Acne Treatment offers pharmaceutical-grade acne medicine so that you can get an acne-free complexion:

  • Daily Face Wash: This advanced liquid cleanser promotes a clear complexion by removing the bacteria, impurities and oily residues that cause acne.
  • Advanced Face Tonic: This gentle, yet high-potency wonder softens, smoothes and conditions for a radiantly clear complexion. Professional-grade Alpha Hydroxy Acids remove organic buildup while dissolving dead skin cells and pore-clogging, oily residues to renew and clarify.
  • Acne Therapy Lotion: This intensive acne medication cures recurring acne with dermatologist recommended Benzoyl Peroxide. Enriched with vitamins and skin restoring ingredients, the prescription-grade formula repairs and conditions acne stressed skin to help prevent scarring. Ultralight and oil-free, the Lotion absorbs quickly and invisibly without leaving a residue.
Distinguish between comedogenic vs non-comedogenic acne medicine

Comedogenic refers to ingredients or products that have a tendency to block pores and promote comedones (plural of comedo), or acne.

If you already suffer from oily or acne-prone skin, keep an eye out for these comedogenic ingredients when purchasing products:
  • Cocoa Butter
  • Pigments & Dyes (red in particular)
  • Coal Tar
  • Lanolin
  • Isopropyl Myristate
Consider acne products with dermatological ingredients

You have the option of using an acne product comparison chart to find acne products that target the causes of acne and keep acne blemishes under control with effective pharmaceutical-grade acne ingredients to diminish acne and prevent acne outbreaks. Consider ingredients like:
  • Glycolic Acid
  • Salicylic Acid
  • Alpha Hydroxy Acids
  • Benzoyl Peroxide
  • Allantoin
  • Urea
  • Green Tea
  • Vitamins B5, A, C and E
Where to search: Search engine are the best resource
You also have the option of maintaining a clear complexion at all times by using convenient prescription-grade acne pads anywhere oily residues start building up. Advanced Acne Pads help you diminish acne areas, healing and repairing acne-stressed skin.

What Everyone Should Know About Acne Skin Care

In the never ending battle to come up with effective acne treatments, many acne skin care brands develop pretty interesting acne products. Some acne skin care brands give special importance to cleansing your skin and produce useful cleansers and tonics to help keep the skin free from impurities and debris. Some acne treatments specialize in clearing grime from deep within the pores, again creating cleansers that help leave your face super clean. For the past few years, us here at MenScience have been listening to our customers more frequent interests, specifically requesting acne treatments and medications.

We recognize the gradual development of acne treatments from other brands to help people suffering from different forms of acne, however, it has to be confessed to be true that the results and ingredients used are scary. Not too long ago, I spoke to a relative who was happy with her "acne solution", but when I looked at her skin closely? I was greatly astonished. The answer for acne that she had found cleared her skin breakouts, but had completely dried her skin. She had countless marks and spots all over the areas where she had applied the acne products, and I felt like I should write a post.

Acne treatments and acne medicine are acne solution are the most common terms used by companies that offer acne products. However, are most acne brands actually "aware" about a real acne treatment system is, and does it help target the causes of acne and keep acne blemishes under control while smoothing and conditioning the skin?

So, I thought about giving you my point of view. The question we should ask ourselves is very basic, "What should everyone know about acne treatments and acne skin care?" I hope you can benefit from this.

Acne Treatments

The term acne treatment services for anyone that uses a combination of products in a defined protocol to combat the causes of acne and remedy its consequences. For example, it's very important for me to use an acne product that can prevent and control breakouts, but it's also necessary to use one that rapidly eliminates acne breakouts and helps repair blemished skin.

Acne skin care brands must make great efforts to develop acne products that are prescription-grade, effective, and simple. We strive to find that balance in all of our products here at MenScience.

When suffering from acne, breakouts are one of the biggest struggles. Can your solution for acne clear breakouts? And can it
diminish redness and inflammation associated with acne, while healing and repairing acne-stressed skin? These are questions everyone should be asking themselves when looking for an acne treatment system.

In my opinion, nothing can compare to a prescription-grade acne products. The concentration of the ingredients contained in a
prescription-grade acne product, is what can guarantee visible results.

My personal advice is to combine acne treatments with skin care products that are developed with
professional active ingredients that work in harmony when you mix them. By doing this, you will get maximum efficacy from you acne treatment system.

Acne's Bestest Treatment - Acne Treatment System

I have a cousin, Tony, who suffered from severe acne since his early teenage years. He was always trying out the best acne creams doctor's would recommend him. I always remember how he was continuously changing his diet, the soap-bar he used to wash his face with, the towel to dry his face, and I know a lot people that had acne and would do the same. Often, our customers have trouble learning about real acne treatments and trusting them, and I think Tony's struggle is one that many people live with throughout their lives - trying acne cures. Are you looking for the bestest acne treatment?

Whether you believe it or not, the ingredients contained in real acne products set the difference and its effectiveness with others. By using prescription-grade acne ingredients, some acne treatments can eliminate acne permanently. (This is what our Acne Treatment System does, it gives you an acne-free complexion)

The best part of it all, is that you'll be able to make a smarter decision choosing acne products when you learn to recognize which are the most effective acne ingredients. When you savvy what different acne products do to your skin, you can create your own treatments - you-ll be able to combine different products confidently after evaluating them, and knowing their individual benefits. The following task explores how you can treat your acne blemishes with acne medications and clear your skin from acne on your findings.

Review Task: Reality check on the facts about acne

1. Find your old notepad and peaceful spot where you can be by yourself. Answer these questions:

  • Do you pop acne pimples thinking they will go away?
  • How often do you wash your face?
  • What type of environment do you work in?
  • Do the acne creams you use contain Benzoyl Peroxide, and is it prescription-grade?
  • Do you give your skin enough time (at least 4 weeks) to allow acne products to work their magic, or do you just get desperate after 5 days?
  • Do you think that just by working out and sweating those toxins your skin is getting cleansed?
  • Do you believe that acne is a bacteria?
  • Do you stress a lot about acne?

2. Compare your actual acne treatment with your vision of effective acne treatments. You'll probably be appalled to learn that you are treating your acne prone skin with acne products that don't have the right ingredients. You might keep hoping these will give you results soon, but most of the time they're just damaging your skin even more. Maybe your skin is nagging or irritated. You probably have been changing your diet, but haven't considered replacing your acne treatment system. Your face is the best test of your acne treatment products: If they haven't cleared your skin and eliminated acne after months of applying them, then shouldn't you consider changing them?

3. Becoming ingredient savvy. In the previous task, you stumbled on the kind of acne treatments you want. Now that you have compared your method to eliminate acne with an effective one, you need to get to work. Make up your mind to improve your acne treatment and clear your skin from acne by using simple steps.

An easy way to do this exercise is to compare acne product ingredients as you would compare those laptop features. Ask yourself, "What does Glycolic Acid do to my skin? What acne products contain this ingredient? Can Tea Tree Extract benefit my acne healing process? What are comedogenic products" You'll probably find yourself confused about so many terms. How do you choose the right acne products? Will any of them be harsh on your skin? When you start comparing all of the different products you will begin to develop your own acne treatment to eliminate acne permanently and have an acne-free complexion. Write down your acne ingredient picks, and find products that contain them.

4. Have trust, regulate. You have to regulate the frequency of use for your acne treatment in order to cure acne. Always use acne products with care and consideration. Write a list of recommendations from the acne product manufacturers and have it handy. Renew your protocol for clearing acne every month for at least three months. With regular rehearsal, treating your acne blemishes becomes easier and you'll start to feel more relaxed.

The greatest advantage of becoming savvy in what acne products really work is knowing how to apply them and switch them as your acne-stressed skin needs it. Apply what you have learned about acne products and acne ingredients to develop your own acne treatments. What reduces your acne breakouts? What keeps your pores clear? What clears your pimples? It can be anything from using the right daily cleanser, a soothing face tonic, or applying a dermatologist recommended acne lotion to repair and condition acne stressed skin to help prevent scarring. Write a list of your favorite "acne ingredients". Make sure the list includes comedogenic ingredients (Benzoyl Peroxide, Glycolic Acid - Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Salicylic Acid (BHA)) to reduce acne breakouts and treat acne effectively. Keep the list handy in case you need to review it.
