Zeno For Acne
by acneguru

Zeno is a skincare line that created three acne treatment products that function mostly based
on the principle that heat kills bacteria, including acne bacteria. The three acne devices they
have created are the Zeno Heat Treat, the Zeno Hot Spot, and the Zeno Acne Clearing
Device.

They function in a way that allows you to include all three devices in your skin care routine if
you want. Whether or not it’s worth your while for you to do so, is to be decided.

See, there are some things to like about Zeno’s brand of products, and there are some
features so frustrating that it may make you want to rip your hair out and throw your little
acne treatment mini-machine on the ground.

Each product has their pros and cons, which we’ll be discussing so you can make an
informed decision before you buy anything. I’ll also teach you about a possible alternative to
these devices that could save you a bunch of money.

                                                 Zeno Heat Treat Review
                                                 The Zeno Heat Treat is a two part treatment that
                                                 requires you to put a bacteria killing serum onto
                                                 your skin before using a heating device to lightly
                                                 massage over your skin. This heating device has
                                                 no limit on the number of uses you can get out of it
                                                 so you can use it as long as it continues to work.
                                                 The serum is 0.5 oz and the length of time it lasts
                                                 varies according to how often it’s used. The
                                                 heating device is small and attractive, running on 2
                                                 AA batteries. At $40, it’s neither cheap nor
                                                 expensive.

                                         This combination of treatments probably kills much
                                         of the bacteria on your face, including the acne
                                         causing bacteria, Propionibacterium Acnes. To
some of you this may sound like a great idea, but I’m not convinced this is a good thing.

Your skin has “good” bacteria on it too, which the Zeno will most likely destroy. This can
result in an imbalance which makes it even easier for the bad bacteria to multiply since the
reduced number of good bacteria is less able to occupy valuable skin space and fight off the
acne causing bacteria.

Spot Treating Devices
Spot treating pimples with Zeno’s other devices (either the Hot Spot or Acne Clearing
Device) is probably a better idea than killing bacteria all over your face in hopes of breakout
prevention. After all, most breakouts are caused by internal problems rather than external
skincare routines anyway, and trying to destroy all the bacteria on your face is unlikely to do
you much good in the long run.

The Zeno Hot Spot and Zeno Acne Clearing Device are similar to each other in terms of
function. They both allow you to spot treat pimples, killing bacteria in only the targeted zone.
This spot treatment claims to reduce the lifespan of blemishes, allowing pimples to heal
significantly faster than they otherwise would on their own.

Zeno started off with the Acne Clearing Device but seems to be pushing their Hot Spot much
more than the original model (probably because it nets them more profit due to it’s
disposable design). Choosing between the two is simply a matter of personal preference.

                                              Zeno Acne Clearing Device Review
                                              The original Acne Clearing Device uses disposable
                                              cartridges, which is, if we’re being honest, wasteful. At
                                              $130 for the original model and $160 for the pro model,
                                              it’s cost is significantly higher than other Zeno devices.
                                              The reason for this may be because you can continue
                                              to use it for years with the proper care, being that it
                                              comes with a wall charger.

                                       You will need to charge the device for at least 8 hours
                                       before using the Zeno Acne clearing device for the first
                                       time. Once that’s done, you set the device to heat itself,
and hold the tip to your blemish for 2.5 minutes. Repeat 2-3 times each day until you’re
pimple is gone, recharging the heating device when necessary.

                                               Zeno Hot Spot Review
                                               The Hot Spot does not require the use of cartridges,
                                               but you will have to keep in mind that the device is
                                               limited to 80 uses. After the 80 uses you throw the little
                                               machine away, which, to be honest, may be just as
                                               wasteful as the cartridges on the original model. The
                                               hot spot costs $40, meaning you’ll be paying about
                                               $0.50 a treatment per pimple. Some people will think
                                               this is reasonable, and others won’t.

             ot
The Hot Spot requires no charging. As soon as you receive it, it’s ready to go. Just like with
the original device, you hold the heated tip to your blemish for 2.5 minutes a few times a day,
                                                                       manufacturer,
until you’re satisfied with the results. Like other products from this manufacturer, the Hot
Spot is small and attractive.

My advice is that you take other user’s experiences into consideration before you set your
heart on this. A common complaint about this product is that it turns on too easily, making it
                       eing
easy to waste a use. Being that the Hot Spot is so small, you should hold it by it’s sides to
make sure you don’t waste any uses, being that you only have 80 per device.

A Word About All Zeno Devices
You can choose to use just one or all three of Zeno’s devices, but the thing you need to be
aware of is that the reviews on Zeno’s products are extremely mixed. There are hundreds of
people singing each product’s praise and hundreds of people disappointed because the
devices did nothing for them.

Whatever you spend of this device is basically needs to be money that you’re willing to
gamble with. No matter how enthusiastic you might be about the science behind this
product, do NOT expect miracles. There’s no way to tell whether these heat treatment
devices will keep your skin looking flawless or if they’ll fail to work with your skin type, and
end up as bathroom decor.

Another thing to be aware of is that Zeno warns their products are not treatments for cystic
acne. Sure, many people find that it works for them on cystic acne, but Zeno makes no
claims here.

It also doesn’t do a thing for blackheads, unfortunately.

                                                        The Alternative To Zeno
                                                        Devices
                                                   Yes, there is something out there that I
                                                   think harnesses the power of Zeno
                                                   devices, and you may have already
                                                   guessed what I’m about to say… Hold a
                                                   washcloth dipped in hot water over your
                                                   blemish if you want to spot treat, or over
your whole face if you aim is prevention. It’s cheap, easy and quick.

Simply grab a washcloth or even a cotton ball, heat a small amount of water on the stove or
in the microwave, dip your washcloth or cotton ball in, and you’re using the same principle of
heat destroying bacteria that all Zeno’s products follow.

Of course it’s not as cute and just the slightest bit less convenient, but if cost is of concern to
you, I’d recommend you at least try using this alternative first. If you find that heat really is
working for your breakouts, Zeno could be the very next purchase on your skincare list, and
you’d have peace of mind that your skin type responds to that particular type of treatment.

                                                    Aloe For Acne
                                                    by acneguru

                                                    Home remedies are more popular now than
                                                    ever before, so it’s no wonder people are
                                                    looking into alternative skin treatments like aloe
                                                    for acne. Aloe, being a plant highly touted for
                                                    it’s healing properties, seems like it could be a
                                                    great addition to your acne treatment.

                                                    However, before you just assume that because
                                                    it helps to heal skin injuries like burns, let’s take
                                                    a look at how aloe works and how it affects your
                                                    skin.

When we hear “aloe”, the specific plant that we’re discussing is usually aloe vera. Most
people don’t know that there are over 500 aloe species, and the one that you want for skin
troubles is aloe vera. Other species don’t have nearly as much medical research and user
experiences to draw data from as aloe vera does.

Now, understand that there are both pros and cons to using aloe vera.

Why Use Aloe For Acne?
One of the big reasons aloe is touted to be an acne helper is because of it’s anti-
inflammatory properties. There are at least 3 anti-inflammatory agents in the aloe vera plant,
and perhaps even more than haven’t been discovered yet. These anti-inflammatory agents
are the fatty acids are cholesterol, campesterol and B-sitosterol. They soothe irritated skin,
making redness and the very size of breakouts less of a concern.

Inflammation can make acne look worse, and getting rid of that inflammation can
immediately improve the appearance of acne. Soothing inflammation on an ongoing basis
will probably help your skin heal faster and become less prone to infections and breakouts
because it’s become healthier. Healthy skin, as you may already suspect, is much more
resistant to infection by the bacteria that causes pimples, Propionibacterium Acnes.

Aloe is also famous for it’s healing properties, and it’s reasonable to expect that since acne
is a great healer, it can help to heal the infection that is your pimple. Aloe heals because of
it’s Glucomannan. This is a polysaccharide composed of a sugar called mannose.
Glucomannan interacts with cell’s receptors, causing them to replicate and grow
faster. Gibberellins, which is a plant hormone found in aloe, also causes increased
replication of cells, resulting in even more healing abilities.

Pure aloe also feels pure and healthy on your skin. Being that it’s so light, small amounts of
aloe applied to the skin are rarely even noticeable to the wearer. Some people find that it
moisturizes their skin, while others feel that it leaves their skin feeling tight and they need to
mix the aloe with a bit of pure plant oil to get rid of this sensation.

Another good thing about this little plant is that it’s pretty cheap and easy to find in any form
you choose to purchase it in. You can buy an aloe plant at any home improvement store or
garden isle of supermarkets and superstores for less than the cost of your lunch. If you
would rather not have a plant around to worry about caring for (even though aloe is one of
the most low maintenance plants out there), you can easily order bottled 100% pure aloe
online for much cheaper than most acne treatment kits and have it shipped right to your front
door.

So far we’ve learned exactly why aloe can be good for acne. However, that isn’t the whole
story. There are some not-so-great points to note about the aloe vera plant and it’s role in
acne prevention.

Aloe For Acne Cons
Most of the downsides to using aloe to heal your acne are minor, but they’re worth
mentioning since we’re trying to be as thorough as possible in this article.

1. Pure aloe smells weird. You may feel self-conscious if say, your new boyfriend kisses you
and you can smell that aloe smell on your face. We’re not talking about the aloe in a bottle
mixed with perfumes and fillers. For acne, you’d want to use pure aloe, which doesn’t smell
very nice.

2. Most bottled aloe contains ingredients that can irritate the skin. The might be scents,
preservatives, colorants, etc. Avoid these by only using 100% pure aloe in a bottle (Aubrey
cosmetics has one) or keep a plant for yourself.

3. If you’re going for convenience and buy a bottle of pure aloe, you’ll want to refrigerate it to
keep it fresh. Failing to do so can result in the aloe going rancid. Keeping it in the refrigerator
could prove to be an inconvenience for you if your family members often gather in the
kitchen or your kitchen is far from the bathroom.

4. As mentioned earlier in the article, aloe might feel a little weird on your skin once it dries.
Some people find it to make their skin tight. Other people find it may cause their skin to feel
sticky. Combat this by mixing a drop of pure plant oil (coconut oil or olive oil will do) with your
aloe before massaging it onto your face. And don’t worry about putting oil on your face.
These pure plant oils will not clog your pores or cause irritation.

5. Using aloe near your eyes may cause stinging. This was a common complaint, but as you
can guess, the solution is very simple. Be careful about not getting the aloe near your eyes
and you have nothing to worry about.

6. This is the biggest con of all. External treatments alone (rubbing aloe onto your acne
prone areas, for example), isn’t enough to keep acne at bay. There are so many factors that
could be involved in your case of acne that it’s highly doubtful that a single step solution like
using aloe is going to take care of all your skin’s needs.

Is Aloe For Acne Right For You?
It all depends. Everyone’s skin chemistry is different. Some people see great results from
using aloe on their acne due to aloe vera’s anti-inflammatory fatty acids and it’s healing
properties, and others barely see any improvement at all.

The only way to know if aloe will help your acne is to try it out for yourself. Before you jump
right in though, you should remember that this is just a test you’re putting your skin through.
You shouldn’t be doing anything foolish like purchasing the largest sized bottle of aloe vera
you can find.

Try it out, and closely observe the results. If it turns out that aloe is helping you, great! It’s
cheap, natural, and readily available so you’re lucky that your skin responds to it.

If, on the other hand, aloe doesn’t do much for your acne, you’ll at least take comfort in the
fact that this little acne experiment didn’t cost you much and that you can always try internal
methods of clearing up your skin.

Combining external treatments like aloe with internal treatments is honestly your best bet.
This is exactly what makes the 5 Acne Killers report work so well.

Zit Treatment
Acne breakouts are one of the most common types of skin conditions affecting people. We
all get acne at a certain time in our lives. Although it is believed to affect particular groups of
people (due to genes), zits can affect almost everybody. There are many different methods
used to treat acne. The methods vary depending on the type of acne as well as the
individual’s tolerance to the treatment method used. Some of the zit treatment methods you
can effectively use include the following.

Antibiotics for zits

Antibiotics are a popular zit treatment method. The antibiotics can either be applied directly
on the skin or taken orally.

Topical antibiotics come in the form of gels, creams, ointments, lotions or even body wash.
The effectiveness of the topical antibiotic depends on different factors. That is, you aren’t
guaranteed success when you use a certain topical antibiotic for the treatment of acne. The
most common topical antibiotics contain salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. In order to
increase the probability that a topical zit treatment will work, some of the feature to look for
include the following.

     •    Antibacterial properties
     •    Exfoliant properties
     •    Moisturizing properties
     •    Little or no possible side effects

Oral antibiotics are usually prescribed to treat acne from within. The ingredients are carried
through the blood stream to the skin pores where they are needed. These antibiotics usually
work by creating a balance in the sebum secretion in the skin pores, unclogging the skin
pores and killing acne causing bacteria. They can have side effects and it is recommended
you get a prescription before taking them.

Dietary changes

There is an ongoing debate about which foods can contribute to the development of acne.
Although many people believe that foods like chocolate and spicy foods are the main cause
of acne, there isn’t sufficient evidence to prove this. Foods high in processed sugars on the
other hand have been linked to the development of acne in the body. When you eat foods
containing high quantities of processed sugars, there is a sudden spike in blood sugar
levels. This type of blood sugar fluctuation affects hormone balance in the body. One of the
results is excessive sebum production. In addition to this, the rate at which skin cells die out
increases. These two conditions contribute to the clogging of skin pores and subsequent
acne.

A change in diet can help in the treatment of acne. Turning to a balanced diet is one of the
best ways to prevent and treat acne. It is recommended that you eat a diet rich in fiber and
antioxidants to help in keeping the digestive system healthy.



Lifestyle changes

Lifestyles can also play a role in the occurrence of acne. Lifestyles which lack exercise and
cause a lot of stress on the body increase the chances of development of hormonal acne.
He reason for this is that such lifestyles negatively affect the hormonal balance within the
body. By changing to a healthier lifestyle, not only will you get rid of acne, you will also
reduce changes of recurring breakouts.

Home based zit treatment

Before the introduction of antibiotics for acne, home based remedies were used to get rid of
zits. Many of these methods still exist and involve the use of products you can easily find in
your home. Unlike antibiotics, home based zit treatment is more of a trial and error thing.
There isn’t a home based treatment method which guarantees success for everyone.

Some of the home based zit treatment methods found to effectively treat acne include
vinegar, baking soda, honey, lemons, oranges and tomatoes, toothpaste, aloe vera and
garlic.

Home based zit treatment methods are a great way to take control of the treatment method.
Unlike antibiotics and other acne treatment methods, there are few side effects to worry
about and they aren’t that serious. You can get your free report detailing 5 easy steps to get
rid of acne. These are practical steps which can be used to cure all types of acne. These 5

Reduce Acne Spots
Acne breakouts can be a source of stress and frustration. The constant worry about how to
get them off the skin doesn’t help and some products just don’t work. Whether they are
whiteheads or black heads, acne spots aren’t attractive and most people make mistakes in
efforts to get rid of them. As a result, the spots simply spread to other parts of the skin.

In order to effectively reduce acne spots, it is best first to know how acne forms. This
condition is the result of bacterial activity on dead skin cells and sebum in the skin pores
causing them to clog. The skin pores are responsible for the elimination of toxins and other
waste from the body. A slight imbalance in the process of toxin elimination such as
excessive sebum excretion or accumulation of dirt can result in the clogging of the pores.
This creates a conducive environment for acne causing bacteria to thrive. Acne spots
develop as a result.

Now that you know how acne spots develop, which ways are the best to reduce them and,
which ones should be avoided?

Best ways to reduce acne spots

Keeping the skin clean helps to reduce dirt and toxin buildup. This way, the skin pores don’t
get clogged up. It is important to keep the skin clean from within and externally. External
cleaning of the skin involves washing at least once each day.

To keep the skin clean from the inside largely depends on the type of food you eat. As
mentioned, one of the main contributors to skin pore clogging is toxins. Most of these toxins
come from the food you eat. Eating a diet rich in fiber and antioxidants helps the body
reduce the amount of toxins which find their way to the skin pores. It is also important to
avoid excessively fatty, spicy or foods containing high amounts of processed sugars.

Exfoliation is the process by which you use skin care products to remove dead skin cells.
Exfoliation has many benefits which include increasing blood flow to the skin cells and
promoting the growth and development of new skin cells. The skin is usually left with acne
spots after you undergo an acne treatment regime. These spots mainly comprise dead skin
cells. Exfoliation will enable you to remove the dead skin cells allowing the skin to clear.

Reducing stress levels is another good way to reduce acne spots. It can be hard to keep
your stress level low especially if your skin is covered with acne breakouts. However, stress
contributes to hormone imbalance which is the main cause of hormonal acne. Try to keep
your stress levels in check to reduce acne spots.

Use antibiotics for acne to reduce the spots. There are many acne treatment antibiotics you
can use to reduce the pimples. You will need to consult a medical professional for a
prescription.

Use home based remedies to reduce acne spots. Some of the products you use at home
can be effectively used to reduce acne spots. Such products include baking soda, honey,
citrus fruits and garlic among others. These remedies are proven to be effective and won’t
cost much.

What not to do

One common mistake people with breakouts make is squeezing the pimples. While this
method might be effective in removing the pus found within the zit, it promotes the spread of
the acne causing bacteria. In addition, squeezing breaks the skin leaving a scar.

In addition to squeezing, you might be tempted to scratch your skin due to the inflammation
caused by the acne. Like squeezing, this will spread the bacteria and break the skin. A good
way to deal with the irritation is applying cold water to relieve the pain.

Most people find that it isn’t an easy task trying to reduce acne spots. However, it isn’t
impossible. I have compiled a free report detailing 5 easy steps to getting rid of acne. Unlike
other acne treatment methods which work on the surface problem, the 5 steps in the report
help you get rid of acne by tackling the root cause of the problem. The best part is that they
are simple to implement, don’t cost you much and have no side effects. Click here to

Pimple Home Remedies
by acneguru

Almost everyone gets pimples at a certain stage in their life. It is more common during
puberty but can be seen in young adults. It isn’t uncommon to rush for antibiotics for acne
once you have a breakout. However, it usually isn’t the best choice. The reason for this is
that the antibiotics might cost a lot and also have possible side effects. If you want simple
remedies to treat pimples, here are some pimple home remedies you can try out.

Regular cleaning of the skin with water

Although this might seem too basic, cleaning your skin with water plays a major role in
preventing and also treating pimples. Pimples come as a result of clogged skin pores. This
can be as a result of dirt and dead skin cells accumulating on the skin. Apart from dirt and
skin cells, other residue which might cause breakouts include sebum and makeup. Regular
cleaning ensures that the skin doesn’t accumulate such residue. It’s also worth considering
the type of soap you use to clean your skin. Avoid soap which leaves your skin dry since this
might trigger excessive sebum production.

Baking soda

Baking soda has an antiseptic effect and will help kill bacteria found on the skin. For use,
you can create a paste by mixing baking soda with water, lemon juice or honey and apply it
on the skin. After a few minutes wash it off. This baking soda cream will act as an exfoliant
removing dead skin cells and unclogging skin pores allowing for skin rejuvenation.

Garlic

Studies have found garlic to have many health benefits. It acts as an antibacterial when
applied on the skin or eaten. To reduce pimples, crush the garlic and mix it with water. Apply
the solution on the affected area and wash off after a few minutes. The garlic kills the
bacteria which causes the pimples. The main disadvantage of this treatment method is that
you will have to bear the smell!

Lemon/orange peel or juice

These citrus fruits contain acids which act as antibacterial and exfoliants. When applied on
pimples, the citric acid kills acne causing bacteria and also helps to remove the dead skin
cells. For use, rub a lemon or orange peel on the affected area and let it stand for a few
minutes before washing off. Do the same with lemon or orange juice.

Strawberries

Strawberries are excellent sources of antioxidants and salicylic acid. The antioxidants help to
reduce the amount of toxins found in the body and consequently the amount of toxins finding
their way to the skin. Salicylic acid on the other hand works as an exfoliant helping to unclog
skin pores and remove dead skin cells. For use, simply rub a slice of strawberry on he
affected area of eat the berries.

Honey

Natural honey has been found to have antibacterial properties and an effective way to treat
pimples. It can be effectively used as a face mask for facial pimples. It can also be used
along side lemon juice for better results.

Vinegar

Vinegar has antibacterial and exfoliant properties. When applied to the skin, it increases the
skins pH making it less prone to bacterial attacks. As an exfoliant, it helps unclog skin pores
and remove dead skin cells.

Are there side effects associated with pimple home remedies?

To begin with, home remedies for pimple treatment won’t work for everyone. The main
reason for this is that we all have different skin types and there is no known universal home
remedy for pimple treatment. In addition, there are factors which can contribute to the
effectiveness of a home remedy such as lifestyle and diet. Some of the treatment methods
can also have possible side effects which include the following.

     •    Skin irritation
     •    Increased skin sensitivity
     •    Dry and flaky skin

There are many other pimple home remedies not mentioned. Despite being effective, they
can have side effects and also not work for everyone. For simple pimple home based
remedies, you can get your free copy of my report on hoe to get rid of acne. The report
details 5 simple steps on how to free yourself from acne. Although these are home based
remedies, they are quite powerful given the fact that not only do they eliminate pimples, they

How To Treat Back Acne
by acneguru

Apart from facial acne, back acne is quite common. Although you can “hide” back acne, it
also limits your wardrobe to attire which hides it. You also tend to avoid activities which will
involve showing off your back. Back acne isn’t fun and finding treatment methods for it is
your best chance to getting back to doing the things you love most. It might not be as easy
as treating facial acne since you don’t see much of your back. However, treating the acne is
important if you want others to love the look of your back whenever you decide to go bare
back. Here are some of the treatment methods.

Wash your back

Washing your back here doesn’t mean the simple few seconds of scrubbing and rinsing. It
means you need to concentrate a lot on your back when washing it. Wash your back with
washcloths or brushes which have exfoliating characteristics. This helps to scrape off the
dead skin cells. It is best to experiment with different washing agents before sticking to one
which doesn’t irritate the skin or further worsen the breakouts. Once you have washed,
ensure that you clean and dry out the back. After this, ensure that you moisturize the back
as dry skin triggers sebum production in the oil glands.

Using benzoyl peroxide based acne treatment

Benzoyl peroxide based body washes are a great way to eliminate back acne. When
included in body wash, it acts as an exfoliant. That is, it peels off dead skin cells and also
helps to unclog the skin pores. Despite being a great way to clear acne pimples and prevent
scarring, it doesn’t have an antibacterial effect. Therefore, if you stop using the product, you
might experience breakouts again. Apart from body washes, you can also apply benzoyl
peroxide based gels and lotions to your back to get rid of back acne.

Using salicylic acid based acne treatment

Salicylic based body washes also work in the same way as benzoyl based body washes.
Also, they don’t have antibacterial properties meaning you have to continue using them to
stay clear of breakouts. You can also find salicylic acid based lotions, creams and gels which
can be applied to help eliminate back acne.

Oral antibiotics

Apart from topical application of acne treatment, you can also take oral antibiotics to clear
breakouts on the back. Some of the antibiotics that you can take include tetracycline,
minocycline and erythrocycline. These are effective for acne breakouts in all parts of the
body. You should however be aware of possible side effects including vaginal yeast
infections in women and stomach upset among others. It is also recommended you consult a
dermatologist before taking any medication to treat back acne.

Change in diet

The diet plays a major role in acne breakouts. Diets rich in processed sugars have been
found to cause acne. Changing to diets containing less of these sugars will help in the
treatment of back acne. A good way to go about changing your diet is checking the foods
which you eat. The best foods for your body are the organic foods which don’t have any

chemicals in them. Also, fruits and vegetables are a great source of fiber and sugars for the
body.

Using clean fabrics

The back area has a large surface area which comes into contact with fabric. You need to
ensure that any attire coming into contact with the back is clean. Also, you should wear
loose fitting or garments made from breathable material like cotton to allow for air circulation.
You also need to ensure that your bedding is clean. This will help to prevent the thriving of
acne causing bacteria and buildup of dirt which can contribute to acne.

If you have tried different methods on how to treat back acne, you can agree that it isn’t and
easy task. The back area is quite large and without the help of a mirror, you cannot be able
to judge whether the treatment method works or not. I have compiled a short report detailing
5 easy steps on how to get rid of acne. The report contains treatment methods which I have
tried out and found to be effective. The methods don’t have side effects and you won’t need
a mirror to know that they work. You can get your free copy of the report here
