Medication Is Not A Preventative For Acne Breakout

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- There is no pre-intervention for acne problems despite people's desire to remain acne free.

It would be like taking cholesterol medication in case you might have high cholesterol in the future.  Or taking painkillers to prevent a headache.  Or placing a cast on a leg to prevent a future break.

No drugs nor skin care products can be classified as an insurance policy.  It is not a precautionary measure because there is no way to prevent something from happening.

For the most part acne is determined by genetics and hormones. However we all have the power to make it better or worse - depending on what we apply topically as skin care treatments. 

Most acne products on the market are aggressive and usually bad for the skin. Using them as a precautionary measure will just unbalance the skin and create other problems like redness, dryness, flakiness, sensitivity. An unbalanced skin will just increase the potential for further acne breakouts.

Acne should be treated gently – not aggressively.  Some of the best acne solutions are the opposite of the common marketing hyped products and strategies we have been brainwashed into believing:

always just use a truly gentle cleanser, utilizing cool water, and only once per day. No detergent cleansers, just simple ingredients like glycerin, yucca, or even lightly emulsified pure oils like olive and coconut. The sensitive skin clinic deep + gentle cleanser is an excellent example of such a cleanser

A detergent based cleanser that delivers a squeaky-clean face will result in your face being oily again within 2 hours - guaranteed.

cleanse at night, not in the morning. Never cleanse in the shower. Cleanse with cool water before of after showering. Keep your face out of the hot shower water. Hot water is bad for your skin all over your body.

use the appropriate exfoliator for your skin type (an alpha hydroxy acid)– at least 3 nights per week, but maybe 5 or 7 x per week if your skin needs it or can accommodate it. Remember, stronger is not always better.

help your skin repair by retaining hydration levels with products that are natural.   Sensitive skin clinic's hydrate + serum or alocell gel are great examples.

apply moisturizer only where needed, not where you naturally produce your own moisturizer (aka 'oil'). Oily skin types should not apply moisturizer at all, not even those marketing hyped ones that claim to be oil free.

always use a mineral sunscreen every day (rain or shine) to reduce the potential of dark spots after the acne pimple has gone away…

eat a healthy diet of 5 fruit and 5 vegetable servings every day. Eliminate dairy and processed foof fromyour diet. Never eat junk/fast food!

"We got started as search consultants. On the services side of the business we have help organizations save time and save money when they hit issues that everyone more or less hits when their data grows," noted Otis Gospodnetić, Founder of Sematext, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @DevOpsSummit, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...
Containers are revolutionizing the way we deploy and maintain our infrastructures, but monitoring and troubleshooting in a containerized environment can still be painful and impractical.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations migh...
