Five Things You Should Know About Acne

Recently customers have been calling and sending lots questions about acne via email, so I thought it'd be a good idea to weigh in, even though we have an excellent article about Acne Facts versus Fiction, as well as other acne treatment articles.

1. A lot of you have asked if popping acne pimples/zits helps make them go away faster; this is clearly a myth. While it does "sometimes" reduce their size, popping pimples will spread acne bacteria making the blemish worse and causing it to take longer to heal. Popping or picking at pimples can also cause scars and dark spots to form. It is best to use a potent acne spot cream directly on the acne blemishes to diminish them and reduce the inflammation associated with acne.

2. Another common question from some acne sufferers is how many times a day should you wash your your face? When suffering from acne, it is very important to keep the facial skin clean, however, you should only wash your face a couple times a day with an acne face wash that contains Salicylic Acid and Tea Tree extract. To maintain your face clean and clear from dirt, oils and acne-causing bacteria throughout the day you should remove oily residues and buildup with acne pads or a face tonic. These are gentle on the skin an help heal and repair acne-stressed skin.

3. Foods and diet seem to be another big concern from people suffering from acne. There is no real hard-evidence to claim that greasy or oily foods are directly linked to causing acne. However, you should try to eat a balanced diet full of vitamins from fruits and vegetables, and drink a lot of water for overall well-being. After all, this will help you keep your skin naturally moisturized from the inside out.

4. The biggest question seem to be which is the most effective ingredient for acne treatment? So far, the best antibacterial ingredient prescribe by dermatologists for topical acne treatment is Benzoyl Peroxide. It's been proven to clearly help rid acne, while absorbing excess oils and clearing pores. The best acne treatments combine Benzoyl Peroxide with other acne-soothing ingredients such as Green Tea, Urea and Allantoin to help clear acne-irritated skin.

5.
Our last acne issue has to do with people getting a bit too anxious about seeing fast results from their acne products. Dealing with acne can be very frustrating -- a lot times the skin will take a turn for the worse before it begins getting better. With any acne treatment, especially dermatological-grade acne products, it may take some time for the skin to get used to the powerful antibacterial and exfoliating ingredients. Once skin has become accustomed to the acne treatment, irritation, redness or dryness usually disappear. The most important thing is to KEEP usage regular. Your best bet is to apply a small amount only once a day, and then increase frequency gradually over 5 – 6 days. If too much dryness occurs, decrease frequency and gradually increase again. Now, if for some reason your skin remains irritated for a long period of time, stop acne treatment and consult a doctor.

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.

Gearing Up For Super Bowl XLIII


Ocasionally, I mention some sports stuff here. And the big thing right now is that Super Bowl XLIII is in less than two weeks.

I was in Denver for the holidays and had the opportunity to do a private tour of INVESCO Field at Mile High. It gave me a whole new perspective on what it takes to put on a football game event – especially a mega event like the super bowl. The security, marketing, quality control and logistics at events before and during the game is simply amazing.

I guess this just helped me appreciate the game (all sports) even more.

So, if you're one the few lucky hombres that will be in Tampa this year to watch the Cardinals take on the Steelers on February 1, make sure to gear up: you can get the most complete and advanced men's travel kit, designed to comply with the latest Transportation Security Administration (TSA) rules so you don’t need to check in your favorite Menscience products.

But if you really want to keep things simple, then at least don't forget to pack the best oil free sunscreen for this outdoor event.

As for me, I will make sure to be as comfortable as possible in my couch with a six pack of Ommegang "Hennepin," a bowl of Chicken Pad Thai, and watch the game on NBC with my beautiful wife.

I've been posting about MenScience Acne Treatments the last couple of weeks. Getting outside feedback is really important, because it benefits others suffering from acne compare what we say about our acne products against what actual people are saying and their suggestions about how to use each of the acne medicines.

The #1 reason for deciding on an acne product is "customer reviews." A lot of people looking for acne treatment products say that when they search for acne medicines they like to land on acne product pages that have diverse customer reviews for the acne product. Many times they are deceived by what others are saying about their experience with the acne product, but they always benefit from tips and suggestions left in the review.

One of our goals here at MenScience is to add a lot of value to our site for our customers, and that typically includes product feedback from users. In the case of acne treatments, it is particularly significant to others because of their suffering.

We will be taking a close look at the acne reviews, so this is your chance to provide tips and advice to the other acne sufferers. Here's how to write an acne product review.

  2. In the review page, write a headline that describes the most important benefit about the acne product, and give it your rating. Feel free to fill in the other fields (Pros, Cons, Best Uses, Describe Yourself) with info if you want. This will help others better understand your evaluation on the acne product.

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.

Ideal Acne Treatment

I don't even know how many acne treatment products are in the market right now, but it's probably 350-400. Out of all of them, maybe 10-12 acne medications have real acne cure potential. Here is what the ideal acne treatment should have to get rid of acne, in my opinion:

  1. Acne face wash for daily use
  2. Acne face tonic to remove mid-day/afternoon buildup
  3. Acne cream with prescription-grade ingredients
I’ll walk you through the important benefits of this acne product combination:

- To begin with, everyone should use a facial cleanser - especially if you suffer from acne. A gentle acne face wash will promote a clear complexion, clearing grime and oily residue from deep within the pores, and removing acne causing bacteria. You should always start your day by cleansing your face with an acne face wash and do the same at night before going to bed.

- Throughout the day in place of washing your face, use an acne face tonic to soothe, soften and clear your facial skin of organic buildup that can clog your pores. If you have acne prone skin, you must use an acne face toner at least twice a day to rebalance the skin's moisture levels.

- To prevent and control acne breakouts you should use an acne lotion with prescription-grade Benzoyl Peroxide, and enriched with vitamins and skin restoring ingredients that can be absorbed quickly by your skin to help soothe acne-stressed skin and improve its appearance. In case of severe acne, or large pimples, use a potent acne cream applied directly to acne blemishes and blackheads to eliminate breakouts within 24 hours.

There you have it. Acne products, with ideal acne medication to rid acne while improving your skin's appearance for immediate and long-term results.

MenScience Feedback from Friends and Family

I had the opportunity to spend time with my and family during the holidays, and thought I'd post this.

I was chatting with some of them a couple of weeks ago and the subject turned (as it often does) to MenScience. They were nice enough to give me some feedback on some MenScience products:
  • My Sister has been using Acne Treatment System, and she said that her acne problems are a thing of the past, and she's hooked to the Acne Therapy Lotion. She uses it on a daily basis and it keeps her face pimple-free.
  • My Dad has been using the Post-Shave Repair even if he does not shave; he says it's the best moisturizer for his skin – especially likes the calming of redness after shaving. He says that Post-Shave Repair lets his face recover immediately after shaving unlike other after shave lotions.
  • At this point, my Dad tolled with guilty admission: the he's not using the Advanced Shave Formula. "Dad," I said, how can you still be using those useless face powders sticks with your electric shaver. It is totally fine to used this foamless shave formula with your shaver model. I guarantee that once you try it you'll always wonder why you never used it before."
  • Then my aunt hit me up asking if it was alright if she tried the shave cream for her legs (she often tries MenScience products and ends up loving them). I told her that the lubricating ingredients in this shaving cream would protect her leg's skin like no other concoction out there, and it would help cure razor burn and irritation, while combating ingrown hairs.
  • My wife recently tried the new Advanced Body Lotion is infatuaded with it. She has very dry skin and this body moisturizer has become her favorite MenScience product after the Anti-Aging Formula. Until now, she was using the Advanced Face Lotion on her body, but felt that it was not enough for areas like her legs, feet and elbows. She loves the way her skin feels immediately after applying it – it's not sticky nor greasy.
I particularly like the Advanced Body Wash and Advanced Deodorant. These would be the two I couldn't live without. The body wash has become my daily cleanser (hands/body/face). The fresh feeling you get from the Tea Tree Extract is extraordinary. And the Deodorant... well, it's one of those things that you either love or not. There is no in-between. For me, this is The Ultimate Deodorant. It keeps me dry, odor-free, and no stains. It's just perfect.

Right now, I'm taking 24 Fit System. The holidays always seem to leave more than fond memories... So I am complementing my diet and exercise routine with our weight loss support system. It's a natural around-the-clock regimen to support weight loss processes, decrease in bodily fat and increases in lean muscle for a fit and lean appearance.

So that was the product feedback from my family (Thanks Folks!). Anyone have feedback of their own on MenScience’s products?

Start the Year with a Healthy Diet!

Here’s a nice weight loss tip that will make you feel like a million bucks: empty out your junkie diet. There’s nothing like a healthy diet to motivate you and give you a fresh start for the year.

Here’s how to do it while losing those extra holiday pounds. Start by cleaning out your refrigerator; gather any left over holiday food and give it to someone else – get rid of it. Presto! Your food box is clean and empty, so you can make a trip to the closest fresh market and buy healthy foods – lots of fruits, delicious vegetables, lean meats and whole grain items. It may sound eerie, but it's a simple thing.

Start keeping a food journal to track your eating habits. You'll be surprised how much goes under the radar when you're not watching what you eating. By just logging the foods you eat along with portion sizes can give you a good idea as to how you can eat healthier.

Cut back on certain foods in your diet and starting an exercise program this week. Consume more protein and take a nutritional supplement like 24 Fit System: a natural around-the-clock regimen to support weight loss processes, decrease in bodily fat and increases in lean muscle for a fit and lean appearance.

Can you make these changes? Yes!

Try this trick to start out the new year with a healthy diet. It’s also great if you want to lose weight fast, but think that in order to quickly lose to those unwanted pounds, you'll have to take 24 Fit System. You’ll feel like you’ve got a fresh new chance at getting fit fast.
