What is acne?
Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, affecting roughly 50 million Americans — from teens to adults — every year. But what exactly is it? On the cellular level, acne occurs when hair follicles become “clogged” with irritants like oil, dead skin cells and bacteria.
What you see is often a mix of: whiteheads (closed blocked pores), blackheads (open blocked pores), papules (small tender bumps), pustules (pus-filled pimples), nodules (large solid bumps under skin) and/or cystic lesions (pus-filled bumps under skin).
Aside from genetics and hormones, your lifestyle — including diet and stress — is among the main factors that’ve been shown to trigger and even worsen acne.

I initially starting breaking out my junior year of high school. Then the acne turned into dark spots. I started using foundation to hide them. I remember using OTC products like Clean & Clear and Neutrogena but nothing worked. When I got to law school, at age 22, I began getting routine facials, but I still didn’t see any progress. After graduating, I then decided that I was tired of relying on makeup to feel beautiful. My desire, matched with seeing Sylvia’s clients on her Instagram page, led me to Skin By Brownlee and Co. It’s been a slow process, but now I am almost fully clear a year after starting my journey with Sylvia.
Sylvia actually studied my skin and gave me a custom-tailored routine that works. I now feel comfortable going out in public or being around my friends without makeup, and it feels great!Beverly

I’ve had acne since I was 13 and extremely oily skin. I could remember being awakened in the middle of the night by my dad who would put acne medication on my face. It was that bad. It wasn’t until I was 22, living in Spain and changed my diet that it began to really subside. However, cystic acne occurred monthly and I’d still have about 6 pimples AT LEAST on my face. That’s when my friend was doing work for Sylvia and suggested her to me. Now Sylvia’s stuck with me for life! There’s a life without acne and hyperpigmentation for you. That reality exists with Sylvia. So schedule a consultation, let her craft a regime specifically for you and watch the transformation begin.Khyara
Favorite Product: Koji Bright Serum
Because of the serum, you can’t even tell that I had acne and it made my dark spots go away. It has been a challenging but rewarding experience. In the beginning, I struggled to change my diet and keep up with the routine. But once I finally buckled down and took all of Sylvia's advice, I started noticing some changes. When I was no longer getting acne at all, I honestly couldn’t believe that something was finally working. I’ve been to numerous dermatologists, tried several medications, but nothing had really worked in the past. Now, my face is so smooth and free of dark spots. I’m so glad I made that first appointment.Chelsea
Favorite Product: HydraMandelic Serum
My experience with the acne clearing process started out as quite the rollercoaster. Having never really experienced acne before, I wasn’t prepared for the insecurities that came with sudden onset acne, but Sylvia worked wonders on my skin. I had so much support through the process and learned to really trust her knowledgeable and educated advice. Changes were made to my daily routine, but they were fully customized to my needs and I loved that. The HydraMandelic Serum is my favorite product because it has put life back into my skin! It has really softened impurities and the texture of my skin.Joselyn
