What women doesn’t want great skin? It’s the quest of the ages! Well I’ve got a great product you can try FREE. We’re giving away a jar of SKIN1 Clarifying Mask by Dr. Gram.

SKIN1 by Dr. Gram’s Clarifying Mask uses key ingredient sets that work synergistically together to fight blemishes but yet is still mild enough to not harm the skin. Treating the blemish is only one part of the equation, the other part is treating inflammation. Inflammation is enemy number one to healthy skin. For over the past 50 years studies have shown that treating chronic inflammation in the skin can prevent acne and premature aging.

Dr Gram uses Salicylic acid to exfoliate the pores and treat the acne, camphor as the drawing agent to help clear the pores, and sulfur as the antibacterial. It also includes the signature Nutra-Vît ComplexTM which help fights inflammation, balances hydration, supports collagen production, aids in wound healing and decreases fine lines and wrinkles.

Treatment: To be used once weekly for clean clear skin to moderate blemishes (2-5mins) then wash off and twice weekly for moderate to severe blemishes (5-10mins) then wash off. Another great aspect of the clarifying mask is that it can be used as a spot treatment for those angry breakouts. Just use a small dab over blemish and leave on overnight.

Want to win? Leave a message on this post by Sunday, April 26th. I’ll choose a winner at random and announce the lucky gal the next day.

Scientific research connected chronic cutaneous inflammation with premature aging and other diseases such as cancer over 50 years ago, so I was surprised to learn this is the first line to control all effects of inflammation


Most skin care products have one or two active ingredients in high concentrations which can be extremely harsh – there are 11 active ingredients in every SKIN1 by Dr. Gram product to gently yet effectively treat skin.

“Scientific research connected chronic cutaneous inflammation with premature aging and other diseases such as cancer over 50 years ago, so I was surprised to learn this is the first line to control all effects of inflammation,” said Dr. Gramlich. “Most skin care products have one or two active ingredients in high concentrations which can be extremely harsh – there are 11 active ingredients in every SKIN1 by Dr. Gram product to gently yet effectively treat skin.”

About Inflammation: The three irritants that disrupt the skin barrier to cause inflammation are: environmental (smoking, allergens, UV rays and pollution); hormonal (stress and acne); and physical (harsh products, medical/cosmetic procedures, and preservatives). Acute inflammation is triggered to repair the damaged skin barrier by remodeling the injured skin. The body does not know when to stop “fixing” itself and continues producing pro-inflammatory molecules to ensure the problem is corrected. This is chronic inflammation which results in breakdown of collagen elastin, increase in oil production, and an increase in free radicals. SKIN1 by Dr. Gram is designed to prevent acute inflammation from becoming chronic.

Nutra-VÎt Complex™ This signature complex is included in all SKIN1 by Dr. Gram products. It utilizes the synergies between Niacinamide, glucosamine and two types of Vitamin E to fight inflammation and aging, moisturize, renew DNA, balance skin and slow skin discoloration.

Stem Cell Technology
Eye Rescue is the first skin care product to utilize Rutin, a powerful antioxidant that stabilizes Vitamin C, strengthens collagen/elastin in capillaries and chelates metals from the skin. By reproducing stem cells from Buckwheat, the most powerful source of this ingredient, Dr. Gram has been able to create a natural version that does not oxidize. Microsphere technology effectively delivers Rutin and Vitamin K, a vasoconstrictor, to strengthen capillaries to dramatically reduce dark circles and puffiness from under the eye. It includes extra protection from Vitamin C and two forms of Vitamin E, which infuse the skin with unsurpassed antioxidant action and nourishment. The signature Nutra-VÎt Complex™ works synergistically with botanical extracts to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, while aiding the skin’s natural recovery from environmental damage.

Daily Regimen: Daily Scrub, Daily Cleanser, Daily Moisturizer, Eye Rescue
Daily Scrub contains the powerful action of bamboo, rice brand beads, and walnut shell to remove the dead surface skin cells that dull a complexion. It reveals the freshest skin possible and allows the pure antioxidant and anti-aging properties of Green Tea and Vitamin E to directly impact the new skin cells. The signature Nutra-Vît ComplexTM helps balance hydration, decrease hyperpigmentation, and nourish the complexion. The blend of organic, pharmaceutical grade, and natural ingredients work synergistically together to enhance the skin’s natural resurfacing properties and will invigorate tired dull looking skin.

Acne Regimen: Clarifying Cleanser, Clarifying Toner, Clarifying Mask
Clarifying Mask brings together the antiseptic power of sulfur and camphor with the soothing relief of oat flour to clear and soothe acne prone skin. This nutrient-rich treatment purifies and brightens the skin, while minimizing the appearance of pores. Nutra-VÎt Complex™ works synergistically with botanical extracts to balance skin hydration and reduce hyperpigmentation, while aiding the skin’s natural recovery from free radical damage.

Clarifying Cleanser is a non-drying formula designed for all skin types, but especially beneficial for oily or acne-prone skin. This deep purifying cleanser uses salicylic acid to promote healing and preventing of blemishes by removing blackhead-causing bacteria from the pores while simultaneously exfoliating to decongest the skin. Antioxidants neutralize age accelerating free radicals while the natural, pharmaceutical grade and organic ingredients along with the botanicals calm and nourish the skin, leaving the complexion feeling refreshed and looking radiant.

Dr Gram Supports Well-Being of Those with Multiple Sclerosis

San Diego, CA (Vocus) March 9, 2009 – SKIN1™ by Dr. Gram shows love in a lot of ways. His passion is to treat your skin with love, but his desire and commitment to bring you the best skin products extends past the creams and gels, and into the hearts of the community. Dr. Gram is dedicated to helping those in the San Diego community living with multiple sclerosis by creating the 2009 MS Fitness Scholarship. While training at Addie’s Studio, he met an MS patient who told him how the specially designed workouts have basically saved her life.

“That was all I needed to hear to lend a helping hand,” said Dr. Gram. “I took this news back to my pharmacy and told my multiple sclerosis patients about the fitness program and now, some have been enjoying the benefits of training. I saw a need and filled it the best way I could think of. While having healthy skin is important, health is much more than what’s seen. I can’t ignore that, so I am privileged to provide support in any way I can.”

Those living with multiple sclerosis are encouraged to apply for the Fitness Scholarship. Its goal is to present it to people living with multiple sclerosis who could make a valuable life changing improvement with an increase in physical conditioning. Participants are to answer six essay questions about their life and family and how MS has affected them. The members of the Pacific South Coast chapter’s clinical programs committee and the Addie’s Studio staff will vote on the scholarship recipients based on essay responses and need.

A male and female MS recipient will be awarded the fitness scholarship, worth $3,500. The fitness program includes:

  • A personal trainer
  • 26 sessions in the MS strength training program
  • Nutritional information
  • Monthly measures of progress with their strength and overall fitness

SKIN1™ by Dr. Gram sponsorship dollars will enable the MS fitness scholarship to exist. Without a fitness scholarship, the winners of the award would be unable to partake in a program of this caliber.

Review: SKIN1 by Dr. Gram Eye Rescue

About SKIN1: Created by compounding pharmacist Dr. Gram, SKIN1 features nourishing formulations for skin of all types and ages. While working as a pharmacist, Dr. Gram began creating skin care products for his wife, including during her pregnancy, as well as his pharmacy clients. He crafted each product with care, using only the highest-quality ingredients, resulting in luxurious formulas that achieve visible results without irritation.DNA and more.

Each product features Dr. Gram‘s signature Nutra-VÎt Complex™. This exceptional blend of pharmaceutical-grade ingredients, antioxidants and moisturizers works to banish inflammation, reduce visible signs of aging, renew

Review: The Eye Rescue ($145) is a moisture rich eye cream that is not only hydrating, but it will help diminish dark circles, puffiness and discoloration. This eye cream will also protect around the eye area from future damage. Rutin and Vitamin K work synergistically to restore and illuminate the delicate skin around the eyes. Like most eye creams, it is not an overnight miracle worker. You have to give it ample time for it to work. I love that it is fragrance free, paraben free and that it doesn’t burn like a lot of eye creams do – I was pleasantly surprised about this, While I honestly don’t agree with the price due to the size, I must say that a little goes a long way and that it does work.

Be sure to check out the other products in the Daily Regimen line:
Daily Cleanser ($52), Daily Moisturizer ($45) and Daily Scrub ($53).

They also have an Acne Regimen line, which includes: Clarifying Mask ($85), Clarifying Toner ($38), Clarifying Cleanser ($52) and Blemish Control that will be launching soon.
