I accepted the Skintactix Challenge, Have you?
I chose the Blackhead/Whitehead Kit B1: For Normal, Combination or Oily Skin (Antibacterial Cleanser, Blackhead Dissolver) (Retail $32) Kit Price $26.00
I received a trial size of each product.
First thing I did was to smell them, lol. Very pleasing scent and not noticeable when applied to face. My skin doesn`t feel dried out after using, and I use very little every day.
Info from site:
Dry sebum (rather than liquid sebum) is a probable cause of both whiteheads and blackheads, leading to the formation of mila plugs rather then the more typical form of liquid sebum that flows out of the follicles. Historically people have eaten foods that contain a balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6 oils (two essential fatty acids) and the production of sebum is based upon this available balance of oils. The :"western diet" has radically changed the balance of fatty acids people consume, leading to a greater intake of Omega 6 and trans fats at the expense of Omega 3. This imbalance has been associated with the development of whiteheads and blackheads.
When there is an imbalance of available Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, the sebaceous glands produce sebum with another fatty acid, oleic acid. Oleic acid produces sebum that is firmer. It is also irritating to the follicle lining which promotes irritation and excessive cellular debris. This promotes plugs that lead to whiteheads and blackheads and may lead to acne infections. Sebum should not be confused with skin lipids/oils, as they come from two different sources (sebaceous glands and lamellar bodies) and have different composition. Some people with whiteheads and /or blackheads have dry skin and dry sebum. But, it is also possible to have dry sebum and at the same time have oily skin.
Skintactix Blackhead Dissolver provides effective blackhead and whitehead treatment. This special blackhead and whitehead product dissolves blackheads in about 3 weeks, while whiteheads dissolve in about 3-4 weeks. Blackhead Dissolver is make largely from natural plant extracts. Some extracts are natural anti-inflammatory agents to reduce irritation and excessive cellular production. These same extracts are used in the treatment of eczema, psoriasis, and dandruff. Other extracts act like enzymes to breakdown dry sebum plugs. Additional ingredients slow the production of dihydrotestosterone, which is the stimulant of sebum production.
