Also, as you can learn from the video above, you cannot seek compensation for damages caused by the generic form of the drug.

Products that Amplify the Sun's Effects if You Have Acne

Products that Amplify the Sun's Effects if You Have Acne

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?

5 Tips on How to Be Acne Savvy this Summer

5 Tips on How to Be Acne Savvy this Summer

We all long for Summer to arrive since it's a beautiful, fun time of year. But, summertime can also bring oily skin, blackheads and more acne breakouts. So - while using the right acne treatment, remember also to make some adjustments in your skin care and diet so you can keep your skin healthy on those fantastic summer days and nights.

Skin Spring Cleaning: 5 Steps to Eliminating Acne this Spring

Skin Spring Cleaning: 5 Steps to Eliminating Acne this Spring

During the winter, our skin gets dryer - and dry skin is not healthy skin. A 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.
