OH, BEHAVE: DermaDoctor, the acne treatment line by physician Audrey Kunin, plans to add a patent-pending mask to its five-item assortment. The Ain’t Misbehavin Intensive Skin Correction Sulfur Mask, slated to launch in October for $45, is billed as the first mask to use phytosphinegosine lipid to restore balance in the skin. In doing so, it aims to help solve a cause of acne. An article that appeared in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science in May 2007 stated that a lack of phytosphinegosine lipids in the skin and oil buildup are the main causes of acne. These lipids are said to act as a barrier for the skin, preventing bacteria from entering the pores. The mask is designed to be used three times a week on the face or the body. It can also be used for spot treatment.
