5 Diet Tips that help control Acne
Previously it was believed that fat caused acne — that’s a myth — it has nothing to with acne.   So acne is definitely not the fault of the pizza, but what you eat can definitely have an impact on the skin.

1. Milk
Milk is good for babies and small children, but not so good for young people — especially if you have acne.  Milk contains hormones that can exacerbate acne.  That doesn’t mean you can’t drink milk — coffee and cream or milk with cereal from time to time does not damage the skin.  Just try not to drink more than a glass of milk a day.

2. Sugar
This is not scientifically proven, but many doctors now believe that excess sugar can aggravate acne.

3. Fish Oil
Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish are not only good for general health, they are important for healthy skin and acne prevention. The best sources for Omega-3 fish include salmon, cod and tuna.  So eat more fish or you can take Omega-3 supplements.

4. Vitamins
Some vitamins are essential for treating acne.  Research has shown that both vitamin B5 and vitamin A in high doses can be excellent in treating acne. You should consult your doctor about the proper dosage before trying these because they can also be toxic.  Vitamin E is also important for healthy and beautiful skin.  Multivitamins are also a good way to prevent acne.  And of course, fruits and vegetables can help your vitamin intake.

5. Zinc
Zinc reduces acne because it boosts your immune system. Good sources of zinc are eggs, whole grains and mushrooms.

Follow these tips for at least two weeks and you should see their effects.  Don’t expect miracles, but in combination with other acne treatments, you’ll be happy with the results.

 

Acne. It’s a word that makes most of us cringe. And it’s a condition that can instantly crush one’s self-esteem. But as we look forward to new beauty possibilities in 2011, we find hope for clear skin with Ermis Labs.

And in this company’s new 2-pronged attack on acne, we also discover a special ingredient at the bottom of the sea. It’s sea whip coral, and yes, it plays a key role in the acne treatment program of CoralActives.

Here’s the skinny on my current Skin Care Love-Affair with Coral Actives:
Waking up in the morning at the the ripe old age of 23 with another acne breakout? Seems to be the norm these days. What ever happened to the whole “Oh, you’ll grow out of that”, fable? We can ask questions all day, OR…. Try using Coral Actives Retinol Exfoliating Cleanser and Penetrating Acne Serum. After two days my skin showed visible improvement, I kid you not folks.

My face has been LOVING these products!
Before I had been using Proactiv and other products that contain Benzoyl Peroxide, which have worked really well. unfortunately they do leave me with another problem though: dry and flaking skin. My skin gets really dry in the morning (after I’ve cleansed my skin), then a few hours later it gets really oily (its ‘normal’ self). by the end of the day my skin is one hot, flaking mess.so for the last 3 weeks (exactly 21 days now) I’ve added both Coral Actives to my skin care routine. Coral Actives is an acne treatment with a moisturizing formulation: the moisturizing formulation minimizes the traditional side effects of benzoyl periode. while trying out the products, I’ve been focusing on two things: has my occasional acne been improved? Is my skin still dry and flaking?

Coral Actives for Acne and More
Sea Whip Coral is what sets Ermis Labs apart from their many competitors. It’s a soft coral found in the Caribbean, and it is a very potent, natural anti-inflammatory extract that is safe, effective, and environmentally friendly. Sea Whip Extract is also a completely renewable resource. “Colonies of Sea Whip Coral have been researched by independent scientists since before 1990 and consistently monitored since 1996. Their studies, as well as the records of the exclusive harvester, show that the coral extract has been collected in a sustainable manner that has consistently resulted in complete re-growth.”

CoralActives Acne Treatment
If you follow my blog, then you know about my skin issues. I have extremely oily skin. I don’t think I’ve ever seen my face completely matte. I also suffer from the occasional whiteheads (due to hormones or stress), which leave red spots on my skin for months…

Having good skin is really important to me. More important than makeup actually. Cause if my skin doesn’t look good, there’s no makeup in the world that will make it look completely flawless all day long!

Have you ever awakened with a huge pimple on the day before a big event and wondered what you could do to make it disappear?

  1. Apply a cold washcloth to help reduce the inflammation.
  2. Dab CoralActives Penetrating Acne Serum Gel on it, and let the Sea Whip Extract  help reduce the swelling and redness.

Remember to avoid hot compresses!  They will only make the cyst larger and redder.

If you’re tempted to squeeze it yourself, just be aware that if you’re lucky, the pus will come out easily and no harm is done. However, if it isn’t ready to be popped, squeezing it can push the pus deeper, turning it into a large boil and leaving a scab, which can be even harder to hide.

THE PEOPLE  BEHIND THE PRODUCT

Paul Tuffy and Chris Billis, founders of Ermis Labs, LLC and creators of CoralActives, have an inspiring amount of passion, enthusiasm, and dedication behind their story, the product, and the reason behind the company.

They were the first people to actually “test”CoralActives.  No animal testing at all. No ‘risk-free trials’ for humans. They don’t believe in animal testing, and they weren’t going to have anyone else try it before they did to make sure it worked.

“We will always be the first people to test out all of our products.  If we don’t believe in them, we definitely won’t put them out on the market for the consumer.”  So, for all you animal rights activists out there, this company has it going on!

THE STORY BEHIND THE VISION

Paul Tuffy and Chris Billis have over 30 years of combined experience in the pharmaceutical industry.  The two met at Stiefel Laboratories, (a GlaxoSmithKline company specializing in prescription skin care) while working on the dermatology marketing team.  Paul, having a background in biochemistry, and Chris, having a background in business management and marketing, came together with one vision:

To design and produce an over-the-counter skin care line that generates results equal to the more expensive and difficult to obtain prescription skin care products, while using high quality ingredients that are safe and effective.

Given their years of experience, they knew they could do it. Two years later, they have produced a new line of products under the CoralActives brand.

FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA TO THE SURFACE OF THE SKIN…         CORALACTIVES – THE PRODUCTS

After much research and deliberation, Paul and Chris decided to take their venture to the depths of the sea where a unique coral grows, Sea Whip Coral.  This soft coral can be found in the Caribbean and provides a very potent and natural anti-inflammatory extract that is safe, effective and environmentally friendly.  In fact, Sea Whip Coral is a renewable resource of the sea – therefore, with every coral tip harvested in a sustainable manner, the coral experiences complete re-growth!

Due to the coral extract’s unique anti-inflammatory benefits and an abundance of clinical data supporting its use on the skin, Paul and Chris chose to use Sea Whip Extract not only in their acne products but also in their soon to be launched anti-aging line.

The CoralActives Retinol Exfoliating Cleanser is comprised of three main ingredients: encapsulated retinol (retinol that only releases as you cleanse), microbeads (the perfect size to remove dead skin but not cause irritation), and Sea Whip Extract (which helps your skin with inflammation).  Used once a day or more, the combined ingredients refresh, cleanse, and energize your skin.

The CoralActives Penetrating Acne Serum is comprised of four main ingredients: benzoyl peroxide (to kill bacteria), Sea Whip Extract (to help inflamed skin), humectants (to attract water onto your skin), and emollients (to retain the moisture on your skin).  The synergy between these ingredients creates a unique and highly effective formula that delivers results for men and women of all ages!

A BIGGER PURPOSE, AN INFINITE PURPOSE

Ermis Labs, LLC owners, Paul and Chris, are very excited about what CoralActives brings to the consumer; prescription results in over-the-counter products which stand out among other brands lining drugstore shelves.

Chris and Paul are interested in more than just offering their products for sale to the consumer.  They believe in overall skin care health and maintenance.  Education is also at top of the agenda!

“We want to provide consumers with the basics associated with good skin care to last a lifetime,” say Tuffy and Billis.

Assisting them in their campaign for good skin maintenance is Dr. Marcus Goodman of Goodman Dermatology, P.C. located in Roswell, GA.

In addition, as part of ongoing outreach efforts, consumers can count on learning more about skin care and CoralActives in middle and high schools, colleges and universities across the country.

The two entrepreneurs are also helping to create their own “mini” economic stimulus plan by helping 16 vendors across the country grow their own businesses and visions.  Paul and Chris believe in building a true partnership with every vendor and their employees.  The success of Ermis Labs, LLC also spells future success for their partners.

Paul and Chris travel to each company they work with to meet face-to-face with the people behind the scenes. It is THIS face-to-face interaction that leads to a sense of pride and ownership among those working on CoralActives. Based on their desire to help others and high quality products, we’re betting that Ermis Labs, LLC will be a success story!

IN CONCLUSION

So, I know what you’re all thinking . . . “Love the story, love Paul and Chris, now where in the heck can I get the product?!”  Haha . . . well, the product launch of CoralActives is set for mid-August.  You will be able to purchase the Retinol Cleanser & Acne Serum online at http://www.ermislabs.com for direct delivery to your home or office.

We recommend buying the Retinol Cleanser & Acne Serum together.
