Last week, mySkin announced that the company is developing the ScanZ skin imaging device that connects to a smartphone to help people track their acne, reported November 7th. The article, "ScanZ Mobile Acne Scanner Helps Teens Track Zits (VIDEO)," noted that the company unveiled the product at TechCrunch Disrupt last week and is launching an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for further product development. ScanZ is a patented device that projects light of different wavelengths onto the skin and captures images of the acne. The collected data is then sent to a smartphone app that uses image processing algorithms to analyze the zits, and then asks the user a set of questions regarding the user’s diet and skin care products.

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine revealed the secret to ending troublesome breakouts. According to Yourwellness Magazine, ‘Many people sail through puberty without getting more than the occasional spot or two, and so it can come as quite as a shock when they become an adult and find their skin breaking out like a teenager in unsightly acne…One of the biggest causes of adult acne is actually stress. That is because stress releases a hormone called cortisol, which can lead to increased oil production in the skin, and the blocking of pores. This leads to breakouts of unsightly acne. Lack of sleep can also be a serious contributor, as sleep is when your hormone levels are regulated. When you are not getting enough sleep, your hormones can go haywire and breakouts can occur. (

Yourwellness Magazine pointed out that bacteria on the skin after having a workout, withdrawing after being on the contraceptive pill and the hormonal fluctuations that occur during pregnancy can also cause skin problems. Yourwellness Magazine recommended over-the-counter products that contain benzoyl or salicylic acid, as these help to zap bacteria and unclog pores. Yourwellness Magazine advised those with a more serious problem – whose pimples persist for more than a few days to a week at a time – to consult with their GP, and possibly a specialist dermatologist.
