Facing Facts About Acne

(NAPSI)-The ABCs of fighting acne may come down to your pH.

Acne affects almost 80 percent of people 11 to 30 years old in the U.S., according to the National Institutes of Health.

Its exact causes are unknown, but skin with an improper pH level could be more acne prone. pH is an important measure of the skin's acidity or alkalinity. It can be thrown off by soaps that leave traces on skin, even after rinsing.

You can fight that by using astringents such as those in the Sea Breeze Actives line. They cleanse and remove trapped oil, dirt and makeup, without having an effect on pH levels.

The line's Clear-Pore Astringent, an oil-control formula for all skin types, helps to unclog pores by treating and preventing blackheads and other breakouts. It contains salicylic acid-the No. 1 dermatologist-recommended ingredient for the treatment of acne-and it provides the strongest acne treatment without a prescription.
