Need help with acne-prone skin? Try PanOxyl!

Luckily acne has never been a huge issue for me, but I have a teenage son who’s just beginning those fun years. I received this product, so I immediately handed it off to my son to use. He’s been using it for a couple weeks, and I’ve noticed a change in his skin! He seems happier, more confident. I can’t wait to see how his skin improves further!

Craving “#nofilter”- worthy skin, but pesky zits and bumps have you moving your finger to the Amaro or Hudson filter? Whether you’re prepping for a “totally candid” new Instagram picture or for a red carpet event, clear, blemish-free skin is the first step for a picture perfect snapshot. While sifting through the acne-care aisle at your local retailer is daunting, finding the right solution for your acne-prone skin doesn’t have to be with this proven over-the-counter acne wash: PanOxyl.

While PanOxyl isn’t super well known, it is truly a dermatologist’s best-kept secret — no other over-the-counter brand is recommended for acne by more dermatologists than PanOxyl. It comes from the brand Stiefel, who actually discovered the ability to use benzoyl peroxide as an acne treatment back in 1966, where it formerly had only been used to treat infections of the hair follicle (weird fact of the day!) PanOxyl comes in a maximum-strength 10% benzoyl peroxide creamy wash which kills 99% of acne-causing bacteria on contact, clearing existing acne blemishes and helping to prevent new blemishes from forming. It’s a proven solution for people with acne-prone skin, and can even be used on your neck, chest and back for stubborn and embarrassing body acne.

This product isn’t nearly as expensive as brands such as Proactiv! Check out this product and more here!

You can find PanOxyl at Walmart, Walgreens, Amazon.com, Rite Aid and many more places!

As we age, our skin begins to sag, wrinkles become more apparent and we often look tired even when we are not. Wake up your skin with a new revitalizing treatment from Skinn Cosmetics. The new Enriched Softening Essence Pre-Treat & Hydrate Lotion is enhanced with young coconut water, flooding your skin with an exotic blend of 26 different fruit and plant extracts to soften, treat and invigorate your skin.

This concentrated formula features the high-performance of Tamarind Seed Extract to improve your skin’s elasticity and texture while intricately binding moisture more powerful than hyaluronic acid. With this instant burst of hydration, your skin will be transformed into a supple, soft and primed canvas ready to profoundly maximize the effect of all your other anti-aging treatments.

To use, saturate a cotton pad with the Softening Essence and gently pat and press all over the face and neck. For best results, use daily after cleansing and before other skincare treatments.

I’ve been using this product in the morning after washing my face, and I’m obsessed! It really soothes my skin, especially with this stupid winter weather! The coconut water feels heavenly, and you will notice a difference in your skin in just a matter of days!

Skinn Cosmetics’ Enriched Softening Essence Pre-Treat and Hydrate Lotion retails for $32 for 4.2 oz and is available for purchase at www.skinn.com and www.shophq.com.
