Originally Answered: Which one is better proactive of skinid?
Since skinID is available without a prescription, it's not required to undergo the FDA approval process. However, the FDA does have guidelines for over-the-counter products, which we've followed stringently. What's more, Neutrogena Dermatologics has conducted clinical trials, which have proven skinID™ to be safe and effective.
Acne medication could worsen what ever allergies you have, so instead of trying out one product after another, you're actually spreading it around. Example: ProActiv contains a known carcinogen, at a percentage known to promote skin cancer.
The less products you use, the better for your skin. Treat your face like your skin. Use Bath wash like Suave Bath & Body Wash, use a washcloth. The secret is keeping your face clean and oil-free.
The FDA has called for more safety studies on benzoyl peroxide (main ingredient for ProActive) because of concern about what happens when skin treated with it is exposed to the sun. Until research can establish or disprove a possible skin cancer link to the use of benzoyl peroxide products, the agency plans to require an extra warning and directions on the labeling: "When using this product, avoid unnecessary sun exposure and use sunscreen." and "If going outside, use a sunscreen. Allow [product name] to dry, then follow directions in the sunscreen labeling. If irritation or sensitivity develops, discontinue use of both products and consult a doctor."
If you're OVER SENSITIVE AND ALLERGIC TO ALMOST, lotions can and will add to more discolorations on your skin AND WILL NOT protect your from burns, cancer, or allergies even those tested by dermatologists.
EVEN IF A PRODUCT IS LABELED "HYPOALLERGENIC," IT MAY CONTAIN SUBSTANCES THAT CAN CAUSE ALLERGIC REACTIONS.
Good thinking! Question 6b is True!
After all, people are individuals. And there's no telling what any individual may be allergic to. According to the cosmetic industry, "hypoallergenic" means "less likely to cause an allergic reaction." But dermatologists - and consumers who have allergies - know that the word "hypoallergenic" on the label is no guarantee against an allergic reaction.
CHOOSING PRODUCTS WITH THE CLAIM "DERMATOLOGIST TESTED" IS A WAY TO AVOID AN ALLERGIC REACTION OR OTHER SKIN IRRITATION.
Nope! Question 6c is False!
"Dermatologist tested" doesn't really tell you much, does it? It leaves you wondering about things like:
•Did the dermatologist work for the manufacturer?
•How many people was the product tested on?
•How long did the testing last?
•What were the results of the testing?
Remember, poison ivy is all natural, too! But you probably don't want it on your skin. It is very possible to have an allergic reaction, or other irritation, from products labeled "all natural" or "organic." For example, lanolin, from sheep's wool, is a common natural ingredient in some moisturizers that sometimes causes allergic reactions.
I get one tiny zit a month or none. I have very clear, soft & silky complexion and I'm 60 years old, same as when I was in HS.
