Face Doctor is a line of skin cleansing products that was developed in China after 30 years of research. Face Doctor products include complexion soap, medicated surgeon's soap, beauty cream and shampoo. Cooke discovered these products at Pellow's Pharmacy in Walkerton while explaining her skin problem to the pharmacists there."Going through Pellow's Pharmacy . . . I was talking to them (pharmacists) about my face and they said to try this," Cooke explained. Along with patchy red skin, Cooke also suffered from acne and very sensitive skin. She couldn't use any perfumes or scented creams. She purchased the Face Doctor beauty cream and complexion soap as a last resort after many efforts to fix her skin.Although the soap alone cost $20, it was well worth every penny, Cooke said. "I tried everything . . . real expensive stuff on my face, and different creams," said Cooke. "To me, it's cheap, because all the other products were more expensive." Cooke used the cream and soap twice daily, and has since found she only needs the soap, and the redness and acne have subsided.All Face Doctor products are specially formulated with natural seabuckthorn oil as the main ingredient. The seabuckthorn plant's berries are rich in vitamins and nutrients. The plant's oil, mixed with Vitamin E, aloe vera and some beneficial yeasts, allows Face Doctor products to combat acne, eczema, psoriasis and, more commonly, rosacea. Rosacea is caused by an infestation of icroscopic parasites in the human body, known as the demodex folliculorum and demodex brevis. The folliculorum parasite attacks hair cells and brevis attacks the skin.Ninety-six per cent of all humans are born with these parasites, but until they are inflamed and irritated, there is no reaction. The Face Doctor products are applied to the infected area and dissolve the parasite within a few uses. Skin is left feeling firm and noticeably radiant.
"It looks a lot better . . . I have a glow to my skin," said Cooke. Face Doctor is now being sold at all Pharmasave drug stores, and is getting positive reviews from local pharmacists. Roseanne Currie, a
pharmacist at Pellow Pharmacy for 15 years, said she's pleased to sell a product that actually shows staggering results."Up until (this) point, there weren't many options for people with rosacea," Currie said. "More and more people are hearing about it and are coming in looking for it." Currie said she has pointed out Face Doctor products to customers before, and has no problem spreading the word about them.
"I feel very comfortable recommending the products," she said. News of Face Doctor products is also spreading in other parts of the province. Derek Lepage, Face Doctor spokesperson in Sault Ste. Marie, raves about the products and their success. Lepage, 38, has been using the soap on his face for the past two years, and has been relieved of redness, skin bumps and painful boils that 15 surgeries couldn't keep away. "For two years, this soap's been the only thing I'm using," explained
Lepage. "It keeps my skin clean, nice and tight." Lepage also noted that Face Doctor products can be used by people without rosacea who want cleaner, healthier looking skin. The products can be used
externally on the entire body. For those living with painful and embarrassing skin conditions like rosacea, Face Doctor products might be the key to a cure. Aside from product availability at several pharmacies, information can be obtained online at www.facedoctor.ca.
