Episode #113 – Fresh Faced Skin Care with Erica Suppa
A lot of us have experienced the adolescent scourge of acne that may have made us feel stressed, anxious or embarrassed about standing up in front of class, talking to that cute boy you liked or trying out for the cheerleading team. But when acne turns to cystic acne and follows you into adulthood, it can seriously hamper not just your social life and love life (who feels confident walking up to an attractive member of the opposite sex when you know you have a massive puss-filled lump on your face?), it can also affect your career, your happiness, and pretty much every aspect of your life. Erica Suppa knows a lot about this struggle because she herself has experienced cystic adult acne. Not that you would know it to look at her now!
The difference between Erica and most other people out there peddling skin care products is that she is a chemist and worked as a scientist in cancer research first. She deeply understands the underlying chemistry of the human body and particularly human skin. She is able to formulate products that chemically do exactly what she says they will do. She even tests every new product on her own, extremely sensitive skin first.
When I asked for more details she used her purifying bar as an example. She wanted something that had the same pH level as the skin so it wouldn’t dry it out or strip the skin of its natural oils. She then she added both anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial ingredients to reduce inflammation and to curb bacterial growth. What does this mean for the user? It means that you have in a bar a cleanser that not only cleans your skin, it also reduces redness (inflammation) and treats the bacteria present in acne. She also said her male clients love to use it for shaving too. No razor burn or rash. That sounds pretty amazing to me! Listen in or watch below to find out how Erica went from being a cancer research scientist to developing new skin care products that do what they say they do!
