Acne affects at least 50 million Americans, 80 percent of all people between the ages of 18 and 30, and millions more who are both younger and older. Yet most of us self-medicate -- rushing off to the drugstore to purchase just about anything that promises to help, only to discover nothing really works. Inevitably, we all begin to wonder if the continuing myths and misinformation about acne perpetuated by the media are actually true: Did I wash my face the wrong way? Did I eat too much chocolate? Will that expensive new cream I can't afford really work? Will my face ever look better? Drs. Katie Rodan and Kathy Fields's Proactiv treatment -- the #1 selling acne-care product in America -- has already brought relief to millions. In Unblemished, they debunk the misconceptions about acne and present a revolutionary guide to zapping zits forever. After years of studying acne treatment and listening to their patients' concerns, Rodan and Fields formulated The Rodan and Fields Approach, which works in three simple steps. Rather than spot-treating blemishes and pimples reactively, their system -- individualized for every skin type, age, and ethnicity -- treats the entire face using a remarkably simple regimen that really works. Including illustrations, sidebars, and detailed case studies from the doctors' own files, Unblemished is a blueprint to renew self- confidence and glowing, healthy skin.Stop Breakouts! ...
