THE PLAIN & PIMPLE TRUTH

NECESSARY TWEENAGER SKIN CARE HABITS

Protect your skin.

USE SUNSCREEN: We all know that sunscreen protects your skin from this sun, and it reduces your chance of skin cancer, so Frosh Wash is creating an SPF 28 moisturizer called “SURFER SAUCE” as we speak! Did you also know that this reduces your chance of signs of early aging? 90% of premature aging is caused by the sun. Sure, it may not be something that you are thinking of when your in your tweens, but you’ll be glad you did in 15 years. Apply sunscreen with a minimum SPF 15 (FroshWash recommends higher) when you’re out in the sun or cruising around with your friends. Don’t forget to slap it on regularly! And tell your friends.

Turf  the soap to the curb. Use FroshWash Acne Skin Cleansing System. . Do you have oily skin? Many tweens find that oily skin is their main concern, so look Frosh Wash’s Wipe Out Wash to help if this is your problem. An affordable one that that is 100% Mother Nature’s Elements, which includes Salicylic Acid which helps clear acne. Make sure you wash your face in the morning and at night. You never want to sleep in your makeup, if you wear that stuff. It’s important to strip your face clean before you put your head down.

Moisturize your face. The idea that those of us with oily skin don’t need a moisturizer is just plain stupid. What you do need is a light oil-free moisturizer to put on after you cleanse. Clean & Clear Finishes Pore Perfecting Moisturizer SPF 15 (compare prices) is a good choice because of the sun protection. (It’s not enough for all day; reapply as needed). Always moisturize after you wash and dry your face. If your skin is very oily, you may choose to just moisturize in the morning.

THE PLAIN & “PIMPLE” TRUTH

“OUT WITH THE BAD, IN WITH THE GOOD”

Clear, healthy, pimple-free skin is a dream for many young people just entering puberty— and though you can’t do anything about your hormones or hereditary, two main causes of acne, you can alter your daily routine to improve your skin’s appearance. Break your skin care bad habits to prevent acne and enjoy clear skin.

Acne, the term for what’s commonly called pimples or zits, occurs when oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells clog hair follicles. People with oily skin may be more susceptible to pimples because of their acne-prone skin, but breaking bad habits can still help them — and everyone else — prevent acne.

Break These Acne-Causing Habits

Here are the top bad habits that can take a toll on your acne-prone skin, resulting in pimples and blemishes:

Bad Habit No. 1: Washing your skin too often
Though it’s important to keep your skin clean, washing it too often will only make acne worse. Instead, wash your face with Frosh Wash in the morning when you wake and at night before bed and apply the Zit Zapper to those trouble Zits.

Bad Habit No. 2: Vigorously scrubbing your skin
Scrubbing your skin with a washcloth, loofah, or harsh exfoliant will cause significant irritation or using an acne skin care system designed for older skin— and may worsen your acne-prone skin. To prevent acne, always wash with only lukewarm water and the Frosh Wash Acne skin care system that matches you skin type.

Bad Habit No. 3: Not cleaning sweaty skin
After you’ve had a tough workout or been outside in the hot sun, your skin may be covered with sweat. Don’t let it dry on your skin — instead, always bathe or wash your skin promptly after sweating with Frosh Wash “Wipe Out Wash”.

Bad Habit No. 4: Picking at your skin and popping your pimples
While it may be irresistible to pick zits or pop pimples, these behaviors can cause increased redness from squeezing the pus deeper into the skin and sometimes even scarring. Instead, keep your hands off your face and use the Zit Zapper before bed and let pimples go back down to size with the help of Frosh Wash “Ocean Lotion”.

Bad Habit No. 5: Skipping the shampoo
If you’ve got oily hair, that oil can seep down onto your face — and cause zits. Make sure you wash your hair each day to keep excess oil off of your forehead, face, and back to help prevent acne.

Bad Habit No. 6: Getting hair products on your face
It’s important to keep hair spray, gel, mousse, or other hair products off your face to prevent them from clogging up your pores. Cover your face when applying these products to keep them on your hair and off your skin.

Bad Habit No. 7: Eating greasy foods
While the food that you eat doesn’t cause acne, greasy foods can make acne-prone skin worse because of the excess oil and grease that can get on the skin from the food itself. So stick to a healthy diet without greasy, fried foods to spare your skin — and your health.

Bad Habit No. 8: Using cosmetics that contain oil
If you’ve got acne-prone skin, the last thing you want to do is introduce even more oil. When you buy make up and other skin products, look for oil-free options labeled with the terms “non-acnegenic” or “non-comedogenic” to help prevent acne.

Bad Habit No. 9: Stopping your acne treatment
If you’re using prescription acne medications for your pimples, it’s great news when your skin starts to clear up. But that doesn’t mean you’re free to stop using your medication. To keep a recurrent breakout at bay, finish all of your prescription acne medications as recommended by your doctor unless directed otherwise, then once that break out is clear start with a good 100% Natural Frosh Wash Cleansing regime!

Replace your bad skin care habits and practices with good ones to help bring acne under control. With a few simple changes, your skin — not your pimples — will be glowing.

The Plain & “Pimple Truth”

          The Plain & “Pimple Truth”

           No one’s big into zits, pimples or breakouts. We have yet to see Zit Cheerleaders or a Pimple Fan Club.   What     we are fans of is understanding the facts, so you can start clearing up your skin and maintaining healthy habits with   “Frosh Wash”, the solution that’s right for you.

It’s important to understand that breakouts—even mild ones—are a NATURAL BIOLOGICAL condition. They’re brought on by biological factors like genetics and hormones, which can put oil-producing glands in overdrive and cause dead cells and bacteria to build up beneath the skin’s surface. In other words, acne breakouts, zits and pimples have nothing to do with stress, karma or how sweaty you got in PE class.

Once you understand that biology is to blame, you can talk to the people who know biology best: doctors. Call yours and ask about how a regular cleansing schedule using Frosh Wash will prevent and eliminate breakouts and zits from happening.

Because even mild to moderate acne is a medical problem, it makes sense to talk to someone who deals with medical problems every day—your doctor. He or she can help you find a solution that’s right for you.

In the meantime, you can also follow these simple tips to help keep your skin healthy and pimple-free.

Keep It Clean

Use Frosh Wash’s Wipe Out Wash Skin Cleanser and wash gently, morning and night. There’s no need to wash more than twice a day, and you don’t want to scrub hard. Also avoid alcohol-based cleansers, which can actually cause irritation and aggravate acne. That’s pretty much the last thing you want to do!

Be Smart about the Sun

Too much sun is bad for skin anyway. But when you suffer from acne breakouts, it’s even worse. So stay out of direct sunlight as much as you can. When you do go out, use a non-clogging sunscreen.

Don’t Squeeze!

We know it’s tempting, but when you squeeze or pick at pimples, you can actually push the infection deeper into your skin and make matters worse. It can even cause scarring. Not good! Best bet is to leave your pimples alone the best you can.
