Last week I had the honor of attending a yoga session and Total Beauty event at Uplift Studios in New York City. (Quick sidebar- this yoga class was so amazing and intense and totally kicked my ass. If you want a badass workout and are in NYC you have got to try out this studio!!)
uplift studios- thank you for the ass-kicking!
The best part of the event was Dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe was there to give us free advice about our SKIN. It’s like the universe knew I was having skin issues! It can be frustrating as an adult to STILL have breakouts and overall skin woes. I will go a week or 2 and not have any problems with my skin and then BAM I break out like I’m 14 again.
Dr. Bowe reiterated how important it is to always wash your makeup off before sleep, and how eating right (less dairy and processed foods!) can make a major difference in your skin.
Dr. Bowe also swears by Aczone for adult skin problems. She said it’s a light weight gel and when you apply it doesn’t feel like you’re clogging your pores or piling on treatment. It also does’t contain benzoyl peroxide which I used** to use but it would bleach all of my clothes and pillow cases. NOT COOL.
Some facts about Aczone (from the site):
ACZONE® Gel is an easy-to-apply topical treatment—a small pea-sized amount used twice a day
ACZONE® Gel does not contain benzoyl peroxide and is not a retinoid (WOOHOO)
ACZONE® Gel treats both inflammatory and non-inflammatory acne
bloggers and media unite for an amazing mini seminar and yoga class
If you can’t tell I am really excited to try it out and get my skin back on track!! For real this time.
A huge thank you to Dr. Bowe and Total Beauty for this amazing night of sweating and education!
