As an acne sufferer, you know that many medications have sun restrictions. But avoiding the sun in the summer is like waving a big delicious candy bar in front of a child's (or, let's admit, an adult's) face andtelling them they can't eat it.

I have been an
AcnEase user for several years now. Since my teens I have tried every topical acne treatment from benzoyl
peroxide to pumpkin acid peels. I spent
15 years as a model and actress and learned every trick in the book for
covering up my skin eruptions with makeup but there were times that the bumps
and redness were such a distraction that it took a lot of effort from the
make-up artists and photographers’ lighting to compensate for the issue. In my
thirties I even resorted to a series of extremely painful photo facials with
the promise that they would stop my acne and get rid of the scarring. Needless to say nothing has worked except being
on birth control pills but birth control pills reeked havoc on my body. I went
through volatile mood swings including depression, weight gain, and
hypoglycemia from not eating because I had pseudo-morning sickness often, two
small cysts in my breast and a uterine fibroid. After getting off the pill, the
cysts went away and the fibroid has shrunk. I never ‘adjusted’ to the chemical hormones
that altered my natural cycle.
