Web Site Teams Up with AnnaLynne McCord and Dr. Jeanine Downie to Provide Skin Care Tips and Expert Advice to Look and Feel Your Best by Prom Night

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., April 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AcneHeroes.com, a leading Web site that offers a wide array of information on acne and skin care, has teamed up with AnnaLynne McCord and renowned dermatologist, Dr. Jeanine Downie, to launch Skin Care for Prom to help teens get ready for one of the biggest events of the school year.

Acne is a challenge for many teens and can be especially difficult to deal with during social milestones. Skin Care for Prom, the newest addition to the site, is dedicated to offering tips ranging from skin care secrets to what to wear. AnnaLynne McCord, who plays Naomi Clark on the hit TV show 90210, has experienced acne breakouts and understands the importance of looking and feeling your best for special events.

"Prom is a time when teens want to look their best -- from head to toe -- and that includes their skin," says McCord. "Having acne has been a challenge for me as I'm sure it is for many teens. That's why I got involved with AcneHeroes.com -- I want to share my secrets for clear skin with teens across the country."

This innovative Web site offers a multitude of resources where teens and their parents can learn about acne from an expert and find AnnaLynne's skin care tips to look red-carpet ready for the prom. AcneHeroes.com also features a virtual Countdown to Prom calendar where Dr. Downie and AnnaLynne will share a tip-a-day for 30 days to help teens get ready for the big night.

"I treat a lot of teens who are dealing with the challenges of acne and looking for guidance before events such as the prom," says Dr. Downie, director of image Dermatology P.C. in Montclair, N.J. and co-author of Beautiful Skin of Color. "In addition to the Web site as a resource for teens, it is also important for parents to take an active role in helping their children seek appropriate treatment from a dermatologist."

Dr. Downie also suggests the following tips to maintain clear skin:

  • Talk to your parents -- If you have occasional breakouts, discuss scheduling an appointment with your dermatologist or pediatrician at least one month prior to prom night to find out about personalized skin care regimens and effective treatments that may be right for you.
  • Cover up -- Excessive sun exposure can damage the skin, remember to wear sunscreen.
  • Makeup rules -- Use water-based products and look for products marked "non-comedogenic." Don't sleep with your makeup on -- let your skin breathe and don't share makeup with your friends.

About BenzaClin(R)

In clinical trials, BenzaClin(R) worked better than either clindamycin or benzoyl peroxide alone for the topical treatment of acne. With BenzaClin(R), improvements have been shown to occur in as early as two weeks.

BenzaClin(R) is indicated for the topical treatment of acne.

Important Safety Information
