Hope you have all had a fantastic week. I’m excited that today is Friday, but I’m sad that our rain is over. I know, I’m probably one of like 3 people who LOVE rain so much. If it rained every single day, I would never complain. That’s why I thought I would be so happy in Seattle, but the sun was out the entire time I was there…HA! You’ve probably heard me talk about my issues with sunspots on my face, but today I wanted to share another issue that I have pop up from time to time…ACNE. I don’t even like to say that word. It’s almost as if a stigma has been built around it, but I’m here to smash any and all negative thoughts you have about it. Today I want to share how I’m solving my skin issue with MDAcne.

The lovelies over at MDAcne contacted me to see if I would be interested in trying out the service. I’m very picky about the companies I work with, so I had to do a little research first.

I came up with 3 reasons I felt MDAcne was a good fit:

{ONE} Modern, easy-to-use iPhone app

I am a child of technology. It’s just the way I was raised. I practically live on my cell phone and computer! The MDAcne app is simple to download and even simpler to use. With easy-to-follow instructions, this system will work for everyone.

{TWO} Actual doctors on staff

When you begin the MDAcne system, you will be assigned a doctor to complete your virtual visits with. This is IDEAL for those with mild acne who have little to no time to make an in-person office visit (like me). You can chat with the doctors anytime via the “CHAT” option on the app!

{THREE} Personalized routine

I began by taking a picture of my skin and submitting it via the app. The picture told the story of my skin and what was needed to get it back in (and keep it in) tip top shape.

I wanted to use my system for a few days before reporting back. I have to say that I was nervous to use products that might be too harsh for my sensitive skin, but don’t worry. This system has been working great for me. I don’t get too dry or too oily and my acne has been kept at bay.

My struggle:

Because I wear a lot of makeup, it can be easy for my pores to get clogged. That’s why a good cleanser is KEY. I almost think acne on generally clear skin is worse. When I get a breakout, it’s very obvious. I tend to get breakouts around my chin. It has come to my attention that I tend to touch my face a lot when I sleep or prop my head up with my hands when I’m watching TV. I have been paying particular attention to this area, and I haven’t had any breakouts so far using MDAcne!

Happy Monday! Can you believe that Christmas is in 2 weeks? It has definitely snuck up on me. I really wish that time would SLOWWW down, because Christmas is my favorite time of the year. That being said, how’s all of your shopping going? In case you’re still looking for ideas, I wanted to share a great stocking stuffer idea with Zapzyt.

I don’t care who you are or how well you take care of your skin. We all get a zit every now and then. As a pharmacist, I know that what we eat, how much stress we have in our lives, and hormones can play a factor in breakouts/acne in people of all ages. I think this makes sense as a great gift idea, because everyone can use it! Teenagers, young adults, and adults of all ages will find this product to be of great use. This product is the REAL solution for REAL people. It’s conveniently available at your local Wal-Mart, so get your shop on!

So, why Zapzyt?  This acne treatment gel is water based and doesn’t contain alcohol like other products! Alcohol only causes irritation and makes the area more red.

When time is not on your side, this is where Zapzyt acne treatment gel comes in. Nothing works faster to help you get rid of that zit. Don’t worry, this is a product you only need to use when you have a problem zit. You don’t need to go about changing your beauty routine! ;)

This holiday season is a great time to also try out the other Zapzyt products, including the face wash and scrub. If you’re like me, an at-home scrub night is just what I need to relax and give my skin a nice exfoliation.
