Be an educated consumer! If you
or your children are on any of these generic forms of Accutane (Isotretinoin),

to its severe side effects and is presently a subject of a class action suit
for the damages it caused. Unfortunately, the generic forms of the drug
are still available and prescribed with the same potential adverse effects.
Also, as you can learn from the
video above, you cannot seek compensation for damages caused by the generic
form of the drug.

bad sunlight (UVA rays) forces the skin to put up defenses by
activating an immune reaction in the form of inflammation that is
visible as sunburn. When you increase your body's immune system
capabilities, combined with using natural sunscreens and/or protective
clothing, you protect your skin from sun damage much more effectively.
So, your sun-protection has to involve both a topical and internal approach...with FOOD!
Sun is actually very important for our health.
When your skin is exposed to natural sunlight (UV rays), your body produces an
essentail nutrient, Vitamin D. Having the right level of Vitamin D in your body
enables better bone health, psychological balance and even has the potential to
assist in decreasing the risk of certain diseases.
On the other hand, sun radiation (UV rays) also damages the DNA of
your skin and may result in the most serious form of skin cancer (melanoma) as
well as cause dry or discolored skin, premature aging, brown spots and
interference with acne treatment.
So how do you find a balance, and protect yourself against sun
damage, especially when you have acne?

Moisturizing: Lighten-up on your moisturizer
We already know that moisturizing
is essential for acne prone skin. In the summer, since you will wash
your skin even more often to get rid of sweat and outdoor dirt,
moisturizing is very important to prevent dry and sensitive skin. But,
make sure that you lighten up on the moisturizer of choice. Chose lotion
rather than cream (this applies to both the face and body), and READ
the labels to choose non-comedogenic and oil-free products.

normal response to help dry skin symptoms is to use products that
contain oils. Doing this may produce a serious problem for acne prone skin - clogged pores and an entire inflammatory cycle of "producing" the pimples or cysts.
Over-dry skin may also be a manifestation of invisible inflammation in deeper layers of the
skin. So, instead of one problem you may actually have two if you allow
your skin to get too dry due to environmental factors like wind, cold,
indoor heating, hot showers etc. or because of prolonged use of certain
ingredients in your skincare products such as salicylic acid or alcohol.
PLEASE NOTE: Contrary to popular belief, over-drying oily skin to deal with acne is not an efficient way to treat acne.
