In fact, for treating acne pimples, it's the most scientifically advanced and effective device available without a prescription. Zeno is for people with mild to moderate inflammatory acne.

It is safe, painless, and can clear up a pimple in a matter of hours. So, what are you waiting for? Get clear skin now.

Zeno Acne Treatment - Statements: "Treats pimples better than any product available without a prescription!", "90% of blemishes treated improve within 24 hours!"

What's all the fuss about mineral makeup?

Bare Escentuals i.d. bareMinerals Foundation - SPF 15Bare Escentuals i.d. bareMinerals Foundation - SPF 15 Sunscreen is made of only pure, crushed minerals from the earth, i.d. bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation looks like a powder, feels like a cream and buffs on like silk, giving skin a natural luminosity, and feels as if you are not wearing any makeup at all. The coverage is flawless, free of preservatives, talc, oil, waxes, fragrances, and other chemicals that can irritate skin and cause breakouts.

i.d. bareMinerals is one of the most natural and effective makeup collections around. Women with skin conditions, such as sun spots, acne, and rosacea, as well as those with dry, oily, and sensitive complexions, claim i.d. bareMinerals has improved the overall health and appearance of their skin. But these wonder-powders do more than just make you look pretty, they also contain natural sunscreens that protect your skin from the sun. So much so that i.d. bareMinerals Foundation is actually recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation. The proof is in the powder.

If it’s possible to fall in love with a beauty product, consider yourself smitten.

Neutrogena Skin Smoothing Body Lotion

Just as this product was starting to gain attention by sufferers of keratosis pilaris, it turns out that it is no longer available. After contacting Neutrogena we were told that it has indeed been discontinued (as of January 2006, along with another Neutrogena favorite "Multi-Vitamin Acne Treatment").

Unfortunately it did not meet Neutrogena's expected sales and so the decision was made to discontinue it. What a shame too, as a KP sufferer myself I had recently started using it and thought it worked really well as a treatment.

If you really loved Neutrogena's Skin Smoothing Body Lotion, a very similar product to try is Glytone's Body Lotion (from the Glytone Keratosis Pilaris Kit). For other products used to treat keratosis pilaris go to www.helpforkp.com.

Neutrogena Skin Smoothing Body Lotion users can contact Neutrogena (USA only) at 1-800-582-4048 to request this product back on shelves.

Skip the conditioner?

Myth: Skipping conditioner will weigh hair down.

Truth: Partially true—if you use a heavy conditioner all over. It's good to use a conditioning treatment periodically, but for daily use, apply conditioner only to hair's ends.

Tip: Spray the roots with a volumizer before blowdrying to counteract any weight from the conditioner. We like Bumble and bumble Thickening Spray.

Use Sunblock!

Always use sunblock! You hear it over and over from just about everyone, so why aren't you listening? It's important to prevent against UV damage, even in the winter. A tinted moisturizer like Neutrogena's Healthy Defense is a quick way to get protection and even out your skin in one step.

Foundation tip

If you decide to go with a foundation, always apply with your fingertips. The warmth of your hand helps to blend more evenly. But be sure to wash your hands first—you don't want to clog your pores with dirt and oil!

We love Laura Mercier's Oil-Free Foundation.
