My chest and face break out due to oil, hormonal imbalance, and high stress. What acne product do you recommend?

Best wishes. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my chest and face break out due to oil, hormonal imbalance, and high stress. what acne product is best for me?

Scientific Rx: Listen, Jake. Don't try to figure out why you have trunk acne. It's not a "hormonal imbalance", stress, hygiene, or anything lifestyle-related. It's you. It will eventually remit. Until then, you must manage it with a physician's help. Acne on the trunk will require a topical such as benzoyl peroxide plus usually a systemic antibiotic for a while. If you're offered isotretinoin, go for it. Cheers. ...Read more

Before I read the ingredients and did my research I applied some oils with the very 1st ingredient being Clary sage I'm 12 weeks preg. Will it hurt me?

Probably no harm: Clary sage is typically used to induce labor. Whether it will cause harm early in pregnancy will depend on the amount and route by which it was administered. I would be surprised if a single application to the skin as an oil had an adverse effect. ...Read more

However, there is a caveat in that this has never actually been tested. So, if you use this, be aware. ...Read more
