Most of us associate acne and pimples with the surge in hormones during adolescence. However, many adults over 25 also suffer from zits that won't quit. We've tried using special cleansers, pads, and medications...but results have been mixed at best. Science has been hard at work, and two new solutions have hit the market this year.
What if you could eat your way to a zit-free face? Jelly beans, chocolate, and even gummy bears might be the new weapon to prevent and treat acne. Scott Vincent Borba has several delicious products that contain powerful antioxidants to battle your worst pus-filled nightmares. They contain pomegranate and green tea extracts.
According to Borba, independent testers of the powerful chocolate bar had a reduction of 52% in
28 days. I'm not exactly sure how these testers measured a 52% reduction in pimples...but that's what the company reports. Such a yummy product does come with a heavy price tag. The chocolate bar costs $8 at Nordstrom's. The gummy bears and jelly beans are $25 per pound. Last I checked, the average teenager can't afford to buy this stuff on a regular basis, so they might be forced to stick to Clearasil pads and staying home on Saturday night playing Halo 2.
Or, hey, how about you eat some pomegranate fruit and drink some green tea? Maybe wash your face more than once a year???
Here's a picture of Scott Vincent Borba...look at that zit-free face. The guy must be telling the truth about his expensive candy. How can you not trust a man with the most exquisitely shaped eyebrows?
No, this is not the latest mp3 player technology, this is Zeno - the zit zapper.
Using heat shock therapy, this gadget focuses pin point heat in order to kill the bacteria beneath the skin's surface to accelerate healing. Literally, this blasts away pimples.
Manufactured by Tyrell, Inc., this product has been known to help 90% of the testers involved in the company's own study. Can you imagine that? I expected nothing less than 80%. According to their website, just a couple 2 1/2 minute treatments is enough to accelerate the improvement of typical pimples.
The Zeno, however, is not supposed to be used on whiteheads or blackheads. The pimples where you get that clear pus secretion is the kind of pimple Zeno works best against. I hope you just didn't eat lunch. After charging the Zeno for 6 hours initially, it's ready to blast away your nasty zits - using the power of heat shock therapy.
I wonder if you could use this neat technology to torture ants.
Anyway, this product is also very costly. At $225, the Zeno is not a cheap solution. However, where else can you possible use the power of heat to destroy pimples?
A hot washcloth couldn't possibly do the same thing for the cost of $0.000000000001 per treatment, could it?
If Zeno could play 2GB of my favorite tunes, then maybe I'd get one.
Thanks goes to Siren for sending me the article on these fabulous products.
