Acne not only affects the appearance of a teenager but also their confidences. I don’t currently have my own teenagers (yes), but I have some nieces and nephews who are dear to my heart. I wanted to help be proactive in the lives of my teenager’s, by trying to help them with their confidence.
My nephew Sam has moderate teen acne, and oily skin with some scarring. He has been using Duac Topical Gel, prescribed by the dermatologist, with limited results. He currently uses the Acne Free line to cleanse his face. I’m sure many of you have either experienced acne issues such as this, or maybe have your own teen who is experiencing it themselves. It can be such a frustrating battle to know what to do. My sister would really like to avoid resorting to antibiotics if at all possible, so she was excited when I told her about this MaxClarity campaign. Before I get to all of the good stuff, and tell you all about what MaxClarity is, and why it’s supposed to be great, let me tell you a bit about what causes acne.
Acne is an infection of skin cells with bacteria. The added oils from sex hormones at puberty sets up this opportunity for bacteria to thrive and thus infect a person’t skin. With pores open for oil excretion, that means the bacteria not only has food, but they have an open door.
With the help of the MaxClarity Difference Team and MaxClarity Difference Promise, we are hopeful that we will be able to help clear Sam’s acne, and give him the confidence he needs and deserves. He is really one of the sweetest young men I know!
The way that MaxClarity works is quite staight forward; it has two main ingredients. Because of our body’s ability to block invasion of anything in our lives, we need to get through the skin barrier. This is accomplished by ingredient #1 – Salicylic Acid. Ingredient #2 is that which kills the Acne causing bacteria, and it is called Benzoyl Peroxide. Besides opening up the skin, ingredient #1, also assists the body in clearing out the infected tissue so new healthy tissue can proliferate more easily. These two ingredients work so well together to rid the skin tissue of unhealthiness.
In clinical trials, MaxClarity helped 2/3 of the users in 1 week and over 4/5 within 4 weeks. It also doesn’t irritate the skin of most people. The irritation of skin is probably one of one’s worst enemies when dealing with a product such as this, so this is a great quality that MaxClarity has.
The application of this products is a bit more complex than some, but it shows a good protocol for good results. There are four subtypes to this product. The first three are in foam form and they are: cleaner, treatment, and toner. The last one is a lotion that is used to moisten and support skin healing without the risk of causing clogged pores. Washing affected acne areas morning and night with the cleanser are prescribed, while the application of treatment is to be during the day and the toner only at night.
I will be following up with Sam and how MaxClarity is working for him, in just a few weeks. Stay tuned for the results!
I would like to encourage you to follow MaxClarity on Twitter and on Facebook, to learn more.
