Stress triggers acne. There are skin care products to help prevent and clear up acne, especially for "back-to-school" flare ups. Dr. Bailey discusses the details of her Acne Treatment Kits and how they target the varying issues of acne. Read Dr. Bailey's full blog here.
"I love Dr Baileys products and her generous educational support for the issues of skin care." My favorite is the Acne Cleansing lotion which I use with a BufPuf. This has replaced the Rx that I used for many years but was expensive and was discontinued. Before I found this product I tried many products with little beads which on occasion actually caused a pore blockage and in the end has been found to be bad for the environment. I have had so much better results with the Acne cleansing lotion. Virginia B, June 13, 2014
