ARC Arrival: Acne for Dummies

Acne for Dummies by Dr. Herbert P. Goodheart

Publisher: Wiley, John & Sons, Incorporated

I received this book from Julie at FSB Associates - Thanks Julie!

About the book: Acne is the most common skin disease in the United States, affecting more than 60 million adults and teenagers each year. Acne For Dummies addresses the causes of acne, and, most importantly, what can safely be done to cover it up, treat it, and minimize scarring. The book covers everything from daily skin care, over-the-counter acne preparations, and when to see a dermatologist to the hazards and benefits of prescription acne medications and the range of dermatological procedures available to erase aftereffects. Also covered are specific issues common to acne as seen in various ethnic groups and other skin problems, such as rosacea, a condition that people often mistake for acne. (from Barnes and Noble website)

Keep me posted on this one. My 11 year old is starting to head towards those teen skin blemishes already!

Oh, please let us know how this one is. I'm really tempted to head on over to amazon and get my own copy now. I have a 13 year old that is starting with some minor issues and I got adult acne. It cleared up most of the way when I realized I was allergic to diary and eliminated it. But I still use the Proactive lotion and while it helps keep those occasional pimples away I HATE using it, it's so harsh on the skin!
