Are you a fan of that odd looking fruit Avocado? I know a lot of people are crazy for guacamole.
My daughter likes fresh avocado spread on toast or crackers. I’ll eat it sometimes but I’m still not totally on board the “avocado bandwagon”.
I want to like avocado because it’s really good for you. Avocados have a lot of health benefits, not only for your insides but also your skin.
Avocados has anti-acne benefits too. As a mom to teenagers we know all too well about acne, which always seems to appear at the worse times, like class photos.
Several weeks ago we were sent to review a product called TURO SKIN™ Anti-Acne Spot Treatment. TURO SKIN contains an ingredient called Avocutine, which is derived from avocados and aids in oil control and reduces dead skin cell accumulation. Additionally, the Spot Treatment minimizes breakouts while accelerating the healing process while reducing scarring and hyperpigmentation.
TURO SKIN Anti-Acne Spot Treatment is a potent, fast-acting treatment that can be applied as needed to targeted areas in order to minimize breakouts and clear acne-riddled skin. It accelerates the healing process while reducing scarring and hyperpigmentation. Key benefits include:
Potent and fast-acting
Reduces post-acne scarring
Non-oily, transparent, matte finish
As an adult I do get breakouts from time to time, but not as often as my teenagers do. I let both my son and daughter try the product out for me. Each gets average breakouts – nothing too severe.
The product comes in a small tube. Since this is a spot treatment you only need to apply it directly to the pimple. It’s clear and seems to dry quickly enough so you or your child can apply it and head out the door without having to wash it off or wait for it to dry. It’s good for both men and women too (both my teen son and teen daughter use it).
Neither of my children had any complaints about the product as far as any weird sensations like burning or itching. Once they applied it they didn’t give it anymore thought. I know from past experiences that there are products that burn, tingle and dry out your skin.
I guess with any skin product there are a lot of factors in play that determine what will, or will not, work for each individual. Some products work great for some and not so great for others. That is the case with TURO SKIN and my kids. The product worked very well with my son. In fact his skin looks better then it has in a long time. He hasn’t had many outbreaks the past few weeks and when something does show up the TURO SKIN seems to take care of it quickly.
The product didn’t work as well with my daughter. Just recently she had to take her senior photos for school and broke that morning. She applied the product but the pimples were still big and red by the time we went for her pictures that afternoon. It’s NOT a “miracle” product and it does need time to work but in this case it didn’t help reduce the size or redness of the pimple. In fact those pimples took a couple of days before they finally started to dissipate.
The few times my daughter used the product it didn’t seem to work as well as it did with my son. I don’t know if hormones come into play or if it’s just that the results differ from each individual.
I would continue to get the product for my son since it worked well for him. For my daughter we’ll have to look for an alternative. It’s funny because my daughter is the one who likes avocados.
