Here we go again. Yet another study confirms Accutane has no effect on inflammatory bowel disease or other gut problems. In fact, this study shows less gut problems among Accutane users (most likely just a statistical noise).

Surprised. Going from SPF 15 to SPF 30 does NOT double sun protection. It merely blocks 3% more of UVB. #sunprotection #sunscreen
It's that time of year again (well really it's always that time). It's time to discuss sunscreen. I feel sunscreen is important all year round, but it's es

Science-based antidote to the rampant chemical phobia among natural health ehnthusiastics
Chemicals can be dangerous and it’s only prudent to be wary of them. But just like with chocolate, too much of a good thing can be bad for you. A recent email I got from a reader provides a nice example. Here’s the relevant part of the email: I’ve been looking through the five topical antioxidants you recommend—and this has become so habitual because of my wariness of “dangerous chemicals”—but I always check each ingredient contained in a product...

Can the location of acne tell you something? Not really. At least if you adhere to silly concepts like science and reality..
What is your acne trying to tell you? Nothing. Here's why.

Ideas are like roads. Using roads you can get to places, but in order to get to your destination, you have to choose the correct roads.

Ideas are much the same. Ideas lead to actions that lead to results. Good ideas lead to resourceful actions and eventually to positive results. Consequently, poor ideas lead to frustration and lack of results.

The natural and holistic health sphere is a perfect fertilizer for bad ideas. Recently a 16-year old reader got in touch with me. He has been on the road to ‘holistically clear skin’ for about 7 months now. He has seen some results, but just like so many others, has hit the end of the road.

He sent out an SOS for me asking where to go from here. Sadly, his email is a textbook example of bad ideas sprouted in the holistic health community. So I’ll take this opportunity to set straight some misconceptions and hopefully set him (and others like him) on the road to clear skin.

While usually safe, some acne home remedies can make the skin sensitive to sunlight and lead to severe scarring.

Have you heard there’s a natural vaccine for acne? I hadn’t, until a reader emailed me asking about it. His mom had bought what she believed to be a natural vaccine for acne from a local drug store. My reader thought it sound fishy and asked me about it.

Interesting post well worth reading. This lines up nicely with other research that shows doing pro-social things is perhaps the easiest way to be happier. #happiness   #psychology  
People are wrong about the type of goals that will make them happiest.

Should People With Acne Use Makeup?

I get a lot of questions regarding makeup. In this post I’ll do my best to address them. We’ll cover the following: 
- Pros of makeup, or why you should consider using makeup.
- Does makeup cause acne?
- Do you need to worry about comedogenic ingredients in cosmetics?
- The ‘dark side of beauty’ arguments, i.e. can cosmetic ingredients disrupt hormones and cause cancer? And should you be worried about them. #acne  
Learn the pros and cons of makeup. Properly selected and used makeup can reduce stress and improve your skin.

Fantastic article. Maybe not directly applicable to acne but definitely in other areas of life.
 
The Science of Marginal Gains <- Good read!

So often we convince ourselves that change is only meaningful if there is some large, visible outcome associated with it. Meanwhile, improving by just 1 percent isn’t notable (and sometimes it isn’t evennoticeable). But it can be just as meaningful, especially in the long run.
