Myth: Breakouts Only Occur in Your Teens

When you think of acne, you might think of someone in their teen years. However, blemishes on the skin can occur at any age. Breakouts have been seen on newborns, teens and adults, and on all parts of the body – even those hidden areas we don’t think of!

Some causes of acne include hormonal changes, stress, poor diet, environmental changes, humid climates and even genetics. While acne is not dangerous, it can leave scars if not taken care of early on. To help patients keep their skin looking blemish free, Dr. Lancer developed The Method: Oily-Congested Skin. This 3-step system includes Polish, Cleanse and Nourish, which work together to keep skin looking clear and healthy by gently exfoliating the skin’s surface, effectively cleansing, and feeding the skin essential nutrients.

  • The Method: Polish Oily-Congested Skin is step 1 out of 3. Polish contains Quartz Crystals, Pumpkin Enzymes, Pomegranate Enzymes and Salicylic Acid, which are key ingredients to exfoliating congested skin. While all ingredients are of importance, the Pomegranate Enzymes contain powerful antioxidants to promote skin hydration while exfoliating dull surface cells.
  • The Method: Cleanse Oily-Congested Skin is the next step in the routine. Cleanse includes Jojoba beads, Salicylic Acid, Tea Tree Oil and Lilac Stem Cell Compound. The Jojoba beads sweep away any remaining skin impurities without stripping essential moisture, while Tea Tree Oil provides anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, helping to counteract oiliness.
  • The Method: Nourish Oily-Congested Skin is the last step in the system. Nourish is a lightweight moisturizer containing Hyaluronic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Tea Tree Oil and Lilac Stem Cell Compound. Hyaluronic Acid helps keep skin hydrated throughout the day while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and Lilac Stem Cell Compound is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent.

Additionally, Dr. Lancer developed the Clarifying Detox Mask to clear up any breakouts quickly. This OTC acne treatment includes Green Tea, Green Clay and 3% Sulfur. The 3% Sulfur helps clear up and decongest skin while Green Tea and Green Clay help reduce the appearance redness and absorb excess sebum. The mask will clear up your skin in no time while also giving you some fun – it goes on totally green!
