Can Benzoyl Peroxide be Keeping You From Getting Clear Skin?

For nearly 100 years we’ve been using 2 primary chemicals to get rid of acne;- The first one is benzoyl peroxide to kill the acne vulgaris bacteria.  It's been called a "medicine" by some brands, but it's a bleach - not medicine.- The second is salicylic acid to peel skin layers away that clog pores.   Even though these chemicals have been approved by the FDA, they pose serious concerns for anyone with skin issues and acne.  And even worse, you'll find that they don't really solve the problem.   Fortunately, we're finding better ways to deal with acne. 1....

Everything Starts with a Dream

Unforgettable days often have ordinary beginnings.  Only later do you realize such a day is going to be special.  Just like this day.  Mid-morning was still ordinary when I stepped outside for a short break from my work.  Gazing out into the canyons surrounding me,  I wondered about my next step in life.  A butterfly floated by.  How peaceful, I thought.  Then another drifted past my shoulder, followed by many more.   How intriguing, I thought.  So I turned around to look...   . .. at a sky filled with clouds made of millions of migrating butterflies.    Being surrounded by butterflies can only...
