Seasonal Changes Require New Approaches to Skin Care

<b>Seasonal Changes Require New Approaches to Skin Care</b>“></td>
<p>(<a href=NewsUSA) – While summer has its own issues, fall brings on a range of new skin-care challenges.

As humidity decreases, skin tends to get drier. And, as we move indoors and turn on the heat, this dryness only increases. Furthermore, not only does skin become drier, but our skin’s tolerance to acne regimens can also change with the seasons — the seasonal decline in UV rays may have an impact on the way our skin reacts to acne treatment. For those with acne, fall may see a spike in acne, particularly if a person has slacked off on their summer treatments.

Fall is a perfect time to re-evaluate your skin care routine. For most young adults, going back to school can mean added stress, and for many college freshmen, the numerous changes make it an ideal time to get a handle on skin and acne care. Skin care may require a change in cleansing and moisturizing as the transition through fall progresses. Developing and sticking to an effective skin-care regimen is of the utmost importance to healthy skin.

“Compliance is important year-round if you are using an acne treatment,” says Dr. Charles Hudson, dermatologist. “The No. 1 reason that acne treatments don’t work is because of lack of compliance. Even if your skin is improving, keep using your medication. And, if you have acne and haven’t started treatment, speak with a dermatologist.”

Add the challenges of inflammatory acne to those already present during the transition from summer to fall skin care, and we all welcome treatment options. The first new chemical entity for topical acne treatment to come along in 10 years, ACZONE (dapsone) Gel 5 % has proven useful in clinical studies, where patients saw notable reduction in inflammatory acne in as little as two weeks. As well, ACZONE was found to be well tolerated. Ask your dermatologist if Aczone is right for you.

Important Safety Information:

Do not use ACZONE® Gel if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in ACZONE® Gel or if you are younger than 12 years of age.

Tell your doctor about all of your medical conditions, including if you have glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency.

Like all medicines, ACZONE® Gel can cause some side effects. The most common side effects of ACZONE® Gel are dryness, redness, oiliness, and peeling of the skin being treated.

When the active ingredient of ACZONE® Gel (called dapsone) is taken orally as a pill, it has been related to the abnormal breakdown of red blood cells (hemolytic anemia). If you have glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, you may have a greater risk for lowering your hemoglobin level. However, using ACZONE® Gel on the skin is not expected to put enough dapsone in the blood to cause clinical symptoms of hemolytic anemia. You are advised to be alert for signs and symptoms suggestive of this type of anemia (sudden onset of: back pain, breathlessness, tiredness/weakness with daily activities, dark-brown urine, high fever, and yellow or pale skin). If you experience these signs and symptoms, stop use and call your doctor immediately.
