El Segundo, CA (PRWEB) September 18, 2007
Acne affects nearly everyone at some time in their life, with an estimated eighty percent of people experiencing breakouts. Murad's new line of acne products address factors involved in the causes of acne, including excess skin cells, excess oil, and bacteria, while simultaneously reducing redness and inflammation.
"Until recently, the only things available to treat acne were drying agents. People had no choice but to assault the inflamed area with benzoyl peroxide," says Howard Murad, M.D, dermatologist, CEO and founder of Murad, Inc. "This harsh approach simultaneously dehydrates, inflames, and irritates the skin, leading to more problems."
Daily care begins with the Murad Acne Regimen, designed to reduce surface bacteria, gently exfoliate excess skin cells, provide necessary hydration, and instantly reduce inflammation. With a unique patented formulation, the Murad Acne Regimen provides relief for anyone suffering from acne and other acne-like conditions.
According to Dr. Murad, there are many skin conditions that mimic acne, including keratosis pilaris, eczema, folliculitis and peri-oral dermatitis. All appear as red, inflamed bumps on the skin, and need to be treated with a non-irritating approach. "One of my goals in developing these products is to educate people about their skin," he says. "We need to address all of the factors which cause these red bumps. Many of my patients have problems that look like acne. Acne and similar conditions need to be treated systematically, by first addressing the cause. Leaving it alone, or drying it up, will not make it go away. Acne blemishes can scar the skin, not to mention one's self-esteem. I created these products to prevent this damage."
The Murad Acne Regimen consists of:
