Dealing with acne during your teenage years can be challenging, but with a proper skincare routine and some helpful tips, you can effectively manage it.
Acne can be challenging to clear up because it is a complex condition influenced by various factors. Here are a few reasons why acne can be difficult to treat and some strategies that may help:
Remember, what works for one person may not work for another, so it may take some trial and error to find the most effective treatment approach. Patience and consistency in following a prescribed treatment plan are key when managing acne.
Remember, consistency is key when it comes to skincare. Stick to your routine, be patient, and don't expect overnight results. With time and the right approach, you can improve the condition of your skin and manage acne effectively.
Some Thoughts and Helpful Tips:
1. Cleansing but with a gentle cleanser to help
skin not have the desire to continually produce
oil (use cleansing oil to remove makeup)
2. Exfoliating but again with a gentle exfoliant and
only once per week MSK-
3. Clarifying Tonic to remove any cleanser residue
and to prep skin for hydration
4. Use a gentle but effective hydrating serum and/or
a second hydrator as well
5. Keep your hands off your face. This is a hard habit
to break but you can do it!
6. Maintain a well balanced diet, drink plenty of water,
and get plenty of sleep. The three most favorite
teenage (and adult) challenges, but it works.
7. Be mindful of any skincare product that contains
harsh ingredients that will strip the skin of its
natural oils. It's important to feed your skin
nutritional ingredients and to stay away from SLS,
harsh exfoliants, acids, alcohol, fragrances, and
sunscreen that contains potentially harmful ingredients.
8. DO use sunscreens made with minerals such as zinc and

Shelf Life and Storage Information for
Products and Ingredients
Finished Products generally don't need to be refrigerated as they are preserved, but you can refrigerate them to extend their shelf life. The shelf life for most products is 9-12 months.
Vitamin C Serum(s) and VitaResurface products should always be refrigerated to extend their shelf life.
Sample Sizes do have a shorter shelf life (generally 3-6 months) and items in jars can dry up quicker than this if the lid is not tightened well enough (except our Vitamin C Serums - use within 90 days).
Please keep your products out of high humidity, heat, and direct
light, and keep them in a dark cabinet when possible.
Exfoliating Acid products have a shelf life of 9-12 months. The only things we don't suggest refrigerating are the Mandelic Acid Serums or the Salicylic Acid Serums as those can crystallize in the refrigerator. If this happens you can set the product into a hot water bath to see if the crystals will dissolve.
Additional Items Requiring Refrigeration
and/or Kept in the Dark
Hydrosols - remove 1 ounce of hydrosol and add it into a separate, sterilized spray bottle and spritzer. Keep the larger bottle in the refrigerator.
Carrier Oils - generally you can refrigerate all carrier oils although some of the very rich oils will solidify. This is fine. All you have to do is take it out, warm it up at room temperature and it should liquefy. If not, setting the bottle in a hot water bath and occasionally shaking the bottle will hopefully turn into a liquid.
^There are some oils that have a super long shelf life like Coconut Cream and Jojoba Oil. Refrigeration is not necessary, but it surely won't hurt.
Essential Oils - essential oils are best stored in a cool dark place.
Co2 Extracts - these should always be refrigerated.
Butters - we suggest refrigerating our "skincare' butters. You can take out what you need and keep the rest in the fridge.
Clays - keep in a dry, dark place. Shelf life is at least 2 years.
Herbs - all herbs (whole or ground) should be kept in a dark, cool and dry location.
Herbal (liquid) Extracts - these are created using alcohol. The alcohol pulls the constituents from each herb. Root, Trunk, Leaves, and Flowers. Extracts have a shelf life of 3-5 years. They can be kept in the refrigerator (or a dark DRY place)
Other Various Raw Ingredients - i.e. Sodium PCA, Honeyquat, Oat Beta Glucan, etc. will all have a different shelf life.
