Treat Acne Without Chemicals, Creams or Drugs with Silk’n Blue- #MC #SilknProducts

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Silk’n. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Dealing with acne during my teen years was no big deal.  I was blessed to be one who didn’t have much acne other than the occasional minor breakout or those few crazy big, painful red zits on the end of my nose or chin.  Embarrassing for my teen self, yes, but far better that many of my friends had to deal with.  Pretty great.

However, since having my 4th child (and then turning 30 shortly thereafter) I have had acne. At times it has been really bad acne.  At first I thought it had to do with my hormones after having a baby, though it never happened after having my first three children.  Then I had heard that turning 30 changed your hormones and could cause acne, bringing back memories of the teen years.  I would have happily dealt with acne like my teen years, but that’s not what I got. I had full blown breakouts. Red zits all over my faces, horrible, hard, under the skin pimples that hurt but wouldn’t go away, like, ever.  I even got back zits and neck zits (never had those in my life, even through my many years of playing volleyball) and even had zits appear along my hairline. It was ridiculous!  I tried creams, soaps, home remedies- all to no avail.  It got bad enough I decided to go to the dermatologist, who wanted to put me on a few different medications to “help” the problem, from birth control pills to blood pressure pills.  The last thing I wanted was to be dependent on pills and chemicals to treat my acne, but I also didn’t want to feel a 30(something)-year-old walking around looking like a teenager with the ridiculous acne breakouts. Despite being comfortable in my own skin, dealing with teen-like acne breakouts was embarrassing.

Enter Silk’n Blue, a non-chemical, non-medicinal way to treat acne.

Silk'n Blue Silk’n Blue is a hand-held light device for home treatment of acne.  It helps to get rid of mild to moderate acne with the dual technology of natural blue light and dermal heating. The blue light (same as what is used in dermatologists offices) destroys existing acne-causing bacteria residing beneath the skin’s surface, and results  are quick– get best results of clear, beautiful skin in 3-7 weeks!

Silk'n Blue lightWhile my acne has been better within the last year, I still had some hard spots under the skin that haven’t wanted to go away, and of course there’s a certain time of the month when I suffer from breakouts. I couldn’t wait to try out Silk’n Blue!  Of course when I first got it I had no visible acne so I have no before photos to show you. I considered waiting until I had some- for the sake of photos only- but decided I was sick of dealing with breakouts and I was going to prevent the next one before I started so I began to pre-treat.  For best results Silk’n Blue should be used daily, up to twice a day, and then once a week to prevent future acne.  I didn’t make time to use it twice a day, but I did use it nightly.  Using it was super easy. Push the ‘on’ button and place on the face and the light automatically comes on. The curved design made it easy to hold comfortably against the skin. I’d set the timer for 4 minutes and watch TV or read until the timer went off and I’d move Silk’n Blue to the next area, set the timer again, and so-on.  It took a bit to do my entire face and the problem spots on my back, neck and hairline, but I hardly noticed since I was able to do other things while treating.

Using Silk'n BlueThe Silk’n Blue gets warm on the skin as you hold it there, but nothing too hot or uncomfortable. In fact, Silk’n Blue possesses a built-in temperature sensor which prevents the device from exceeding 41°C / 106°F.  Afterward you could see the areas that were treated- my skin had a red tint to it- but it wasn’t long after before it was gone. I was stoked when I realized about a week later that my usual monthly acne hadn’t appeared.  Back zits, neck zits and hairline zits are gone. Voila. Amazing!  Even better, the hard, under the skin areas that had been there for a long time were gone as well!

Of course I got lazy (because it worked!) and didn’t pay attention to the time of month the following month, and wouldn’t you know my face acne appeared.  I began to treat immediately and it helped to get rid of what was there quickly and prevented further breakouts.  I was curious why I didn’t have any acne appear on my back, neck or hairline though, but discovered something else super cool about Silk’n Blue. The dual energy system not only kills acne-causing bacteria, it dehydrates oil-producing glands to prevent future breakouts!  I’ve been better about doing the once a week preventative treatment, and despite having none on my back, neck or hairline I am still treating those areas just to be sure the acne won’t reappear again.

I finally feel like the same old me when I look in the mirror, and I have no more embarrassment about my face when I am around people.  As my children approach puberty and the inevitable, I’m glad to know I have Silk’n Blue to help them out too.

Here are a few before/after photos from the Silk’n Blue site, just so you can see how well it works:
