The Truth About Acne
Welcome to Acne Myths, Etc.! If you've been traveling acne's rough road, you can finally breathe a sigh of relief. After all the disappointment you've undoubtedly experienced, you've finally found a site committed to telling the truth about acne.
So what exactly can this website do for you? First of all, we're going to help you understand what causes acne and why it's not your fault. Next, we'll explode acne myths -- and there are so many of them!
We're also going to point you to the resources, methods and treatments that will help you finally take control of your acne. That includes letting you know what acne treatments work, why some don't work so well, and why some are nothing more than snake oil wrapped in a package of twenty-first century marketing.
There are three of us who contribute to this website -- all of us from different backgrounds and all with different acne experiences. We're proof that no matter how bad you think your acne is, there IS hope -- and hope is truly a treasure.
First let me introduce myself. My name is Jessica Sawyer. I am not your typical acne sufferer. As a teenager, my complexion was flawless -- absolutely flawless. In fact, I was constantly complimented on how clear my skin was and as far as makeup went, I rarely wore anything more than lip gloss and mascara.
Then, shortly after I turned 29, something odd started happening. I would get a pimple here and there -- not too frequently and not too often. Then it started getting worse. I tried everything -- changed makeup, changed cleanser, paid for expensive facial treatments that cost me more than sixty bucks a pop -- nothing seemed to work.
After more than a year of frustration and hundreds (actually probably thousands) of dollars in acne "treatments" and consistently horrible skin, I finally figured out what I had been doing wrong. And I stopped believing acne myths you likely believe today.
I don't want others to make the same mistakes I made. If it were up to me, everyone would know how to banish acne the minute it reared its ugly head. I'm more than happy to share what I know.
While you're here you'll also meet Nick Dawson. Nick is a great guy. He had horrible acne as a teenager and when he finally did get rid of it, the scars left behind were evidence of what he had suffered. Luckily, Nick was able to heal his scars about effectively as he had been able to treat his acne. Exploding acne myths is a passion of Nick's.
Last, but certainly not least, is Bob Harrison. Bob is my idol -- seriously. He is SO knowledgeable when it comes to acne. He can tell you what causes it, how to treat it, how to keep it away -- if you want to know something about acne, Bob's got the answer you're looking for.
The three of us here at Acne Myths, Etc. are going to be your allies in your war against acne. Look at yourself in the mirror and say goodbye to your bad skin. We're here to make sure you finally know the truth about acne.
