AcneCare Do’s & Don’ts

  • Receive a TSecret Acne Treatment every 4 weeks to keep follicles clean. More frequently if needed.
  • Don’t pick! Wash hands before starting AcneCare routine.
  • Follow AcneCare treatment daily.
  • SHAKE PRODUCTS WELL BEFORE USING They contain no chemical emulsifiers. Please shake the cleanser, masque and ZIT-O.
  • Keep tightly capped to avoid evaporation & contamination. Use spatula to remove cream from jars to avoid contamination.
  • Keep products in a cool place out of the sunlight.
  • Use very small amounts of creams—Our creams are concentrated and a little goes a long way. Increase amount as needed.
  • DO NOT USE SOAP ON YOUR SKIN Soap dissolves the protective layer of oil (acid mantle) which protects the skin against bacteria and loss of moisture.

Drink water, preferably alkaline,  at minimum 6-8 glasses a day.

Dietary Guidelines

Acne flare-ups are inflammatory responses to foods that are high in processed or hydrogenated fats and highly acidic foods and beverages. While many factors like hormones, stress levels, sleep, etc., contribute to acne, the underlying cause is dietary. We cannot control many of the factors that contribute to acne, but we can control the foods we eat! When the body is not able to properly metabolize the dietary fats in our diet, they are sent to the largest center of fat metabolism in the body: THE SKIN!

Drinking water is the most important thing you can do to improve the health of your skin, consume 0.5-1 oz per pound of body weight. Eat fresh fruits & vegetables, whole grains, beans, & bitter greens like broccoli, spinach, & kale.

It is important to eliminate or drastically reduce foods that cause acne flare ups, such as:

  • Cheese, butter/margarine, ice cream, milk/yogurt, non-dairy coffee creamers, hydrogenated & partially hydrogenated oils

  • Chocolate, candy bars, & potato chips
  • Nuts and nut butters (especially peanuts/peanut butter)

  • Soy milk/cheese, Soy protein bars/powders

  • Fast food & fried foods especially pizza, french fries, fried chicken, fried chinese food, bacon

  • Simple sugars including sodas, juice, candy, pastries, brownies, cakes, cookies

  • Acidic beverages, namely, alcohol but also including coffee, black teas, & colas

  • Cooked tomatoes (in spaghetti sauce and pizza) or other highly acidic foods
