Expert Skincare Tips: St. Ives Q&A with Dr. Marsha Gordon
As the weather gets warmer, my breakouts and irritation become worse. To keep my skin acne-free all year round, should I be adjusting my regimen as the seasons change?
While many women need to adjust their skin care regimen as the seasons change, this can be especially true for women with acne-prone or oily skin. Your regimen that worked in the winter may leave skin feeling oily and clogged during the warmer months. In the spring, I recommend switching to a light, oil-free moisturizer and using a cleanser and scrub to help remove dead skin cells and keep pores clear. I personally like the new St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Cleanser and Scrub (image above), which contain a safe concentration of Salicylic Acid to effectively fight blemishes and reduce redness, while 100% natural Green Tea soothes skin.
Any women have to deal with unsightly acne flare-ups throughout the year. While clogged pores may be one of the most common symptoms of this skincare concern, redness and irritation can be just as much a source of distress. Unfortunately, many over-the-counter treatments can be too harsh for your inflamed, acne-prone skin. To the rescue is NEW St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea, a line of skin care solutions that gently fights blemishes and reduces redness, while also containing 100% natural green tea which helps to soothe and calm skin. Formulated with Salicylic Acid and 100% natural green tea, this new two-step regimen offers an effective, yet gentle, acne solution.
St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Cleanser ($5.69 for 6.75 fl oz. pump) is a refreshing cleanser that is made with 2% Salicylic Acid and 100% natural green tea, which help to clear blemishes and calm redness associated with acne.

Kairos Acne Care, a hair care line that can help treat acne? Read more.
A pioneering way to help treat and prevent acne. Throughout their twenty years of nursing, Catherine Parker and Doreen Campbell have treated countless patients who thought they had tried everything to combat their acne. From cleansing constantly to switching skincare products, many acne sufferers had given up hope until Catherine and Doreen asked a crucial question: What kind of hair products do you use? The vast majority of patients had no idea that the formulas they used on their hair could have a big impact on their skin.
Drawing on years of experience working in an acne clinic as a Nurse Practitioner and Registered Nurse respectively, Catherine and Doreen developed the world’s first hair care line designed to respond to the needs of acne sufferers: Kairos Acne Care.
