About Face: Silk’n Blue Acne Eliminator Device

This month? Your must-have product is Silk’n Blue Acne Eliminator Device

Remember the 1970’ and ’80s theory that soaking up the sun would clear your complexion and give you a healthy golden glow? It had everybody hitting the tanning salons and greasing up with Baby Oil (um, hello? Counter intuitive much?), before laying outside with spray bottles filled with lemon-infused water and blindingly shiny sun reflectors close at hand.

While there certainly are some sunny health benefits, such as improved sleep, brighter moods, bone growth and lower blood pressure as noted in a Forbes article published earlier this year, healing acne didn’t make the list and applying sunscreen daily was still recommended. Considering the Canadian Skin Cancer Foundation says 80,000 Canadians are diagnosed with skin cancer each year, there are clearly better and safer ways to achieve clear skin.

Like the Silk’n BlueAcne Eliminator Device.

This handheld device uses natural blue light and dermal heating to eliminate spots and blemishes. Its combination of light and heat permeates your skin’s sebaceous glands, which produce the excess oil that can result in acne and dries it out, reducing enlarged pores. All it takes to see results is three to four minutes a day for three to seven weeks. Plus, Silk’n Blue is chemical-free, safe and painless with built-in temperature-control safeguards, suitable for all types of acne and FDA and Health Canada cleared. Consider it the modern option to ’70s sun worship.

Silk’n Blue Acne Eliminator Device is $149, available at Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada.
