Acne, acne...what can you do ?
People of all ages get acne. It is most common in adolescents and young adults. An estimated 80 percent of all people between the ages of 11 and 30 have acne outbreaks at some point. For most people, acne tends to go away by the time they reach their thirties; however, some people in their forties and fifties continue to have this skin problem. Acne is a disorder resulting from the action of hormones and other substances on the skin’s oil glands (sebaceous glands) and hair follicles. These factors lead to plugged pores and outbreaks of lesions commonly called pimples or zits. Acne lesions usually occur on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. Although acne is usually not a serious health threat, it can be a source of significant emotional distress. Severe acne can lead to permanent scarring.
What causes acne?
The exact cause of acne is unknown, but doctors believe it results from several related factors as:
• Hormones called androgens, which is male sex hormone
• Hormonal changes related to pregnancy or starting or stopping birth control pills
• Genetics (studies have shown that many school-age boys with acne have a family history of the disorder)
• Certain drugs (including androgens and lithium)
• Greasy cosmetics may alter the cells of the follicles and make them stick together, producing a plug.
There are also many myths about what cause acne. The biggest 3 are:
Chocolate and greasy foods are often blamed, but there is little evidence that foods have much effect on the development and course of acne in most people.
Another common myth is that dirty skin causes acne; however, blackheads and others acne lesions are not caused by dirt.
Stress doesn’t cause acne, but research suggests that for people who have acne, stress can make it worse.
Acne is often treated by dermatologists
Doctors usually recommend an OTC or prescription topical medicine for people with mild signs of acne. The acne market is comprised of both OTC (over-the-counter) treatments and prescription medications. On one end of the spectrum, there are OTC treatments, which generally treat mild to moderate acne. On the other end of the spectrum, there are prescription medications, which generally treat moderate to severe acne. The problem with prescription medications is that they are expensive, inconvenient to purchase, and most importantly - certain oral antibiotics can potentially cause serious systemic issues. Consumer preferences are shifting away from these prescription medications pushed by large pharmaceutical companies, so there is an urgent need for topically applied OTCs containing natural ingredients that are effective enough to treat moderate to severe acne.
How is acne treated?
Neutralyze® Anti-Acne Solution is the world’s first OTC acne brand that is focused specifically on the treatment of moderate to severe acne. These groundbreaking products are based on a multi-patented, science-inspired, topically applied skin care technology developed by Kantian Skincare, LLC, which effectively fights the multiple causes of acne by reducing redness, irritation, and inflammation while eliminating acne causing bacteria. This multifactorial approach is the new paradigm in acne treatment, evolving from prior thinking that P. acnes were the primary cause of acne. As medical professionals and educated consumers alike are shifting towards medications that treat disease holistically, skincare companies must also adapt formulations to match these preferences.
The Neutralyze® regimen combines all-natural salicylic acid (B.H.A.) and mandelic acid (A.H.A.) with a low-level release of nitric oxide, which is produced by the human body and is directly related to enhanced blood flow and healing. In a clinical study overseen by Triple Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Gregory W. Chernoff, M.D. F.R.C.S, Neutralyze® has proven to be effective for the treatment of cystic acne, pimples, blemishes, whiteheads, blackheads, acne scars and post acne marks, as well as other acne related skin conditions. Additionally, these active agents help to restore a healthy and even skin tone, while also minimizing the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles.
The complete 3-step system includes Neutralyze® Face Wash ,Spot Treatment & Synergyzer® :
Step 1 – Neutralyze® Face Wash
Neutralyze® Face Wash was designed to be gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin types while clearing away dirt, oil, and bacteria. This non-irritating formulation is rich in texture and leaves your skin feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and hydrated after every use. We don't believe in exfoliating beads because they tend to cause irritation for some people, which can be detrimental to the acne-clearing process.
Step 2 – Neutralyze® Spot Treatment
We've strategically combined the FDA approved, acne fighting properties of salicylic acid, with the amazing, skin rejuvenating properties of mandelic acid (a naturally occurring AHA that comes from almonds),to bring you the most complete Spot Treatment on the market today.
. This groundbreaking Spot Treatment not only treats acne breakouts – pimples, blackheads, and cysts but helps promote healing by removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. This exfoliating process unclogs pores and allows sebum (the initial catalyst for acne) to escape freely.
Step 3 – Neutralyze® Synergyzer®
Neutralyze® Synergyzer® completes this amazing anti-acne system, bringing it all together. The application of this product results in a visibly improved complexion and a significant improvement to the overall health and condition of the skin. Additionally, the Synergyzer® helps to correct pH balance, which allows skin to heal more immediately and effectively. Last but not least, this formulation contains natural ingredients, which prevent over-drying.
Neutralyze® Anti-Acne Solution is offered as a 30-Day, 60-Day, and 90-Day Supply. Each product within the regimen works great on light, medium, or dark skin tones. Neutralyze® can be used by teens and adults, men and women. All formulations are non-comedogenic, fragrance-free, paraben free and cruelty-free. In a recent consumer study, Neutralyze® Anti-Acne Solution was proven to dramatically reduce acne in as little as 2-3 days. Many participants suffering from moderate to severe acne – many of whom have previously tried several OTC products without getting positive results - reported a significant improvement in their overall acne condition. We’re also proud to say that our acne products are distributed and recommended by dermatologists, skincare professionals, and other medical professionals throughout the United States and internationally. Neutralyze® Anti-Acne Solution is available exclusively on Amazon.com.
