WELLNESS TIP OF THE WEEK
Do You or a Loved One Suffer From Acne? Here’s a Bio-Organic Solution
by Dr. James Wu of Solace Wellness Center & MedSpa
Some of us may experience an occasional pimple from time to time while others suffer years of trying to battle acne breakouts, whether it’s throughout high school or even into adulthood. Yes, even adults can get acne. There are many factors that may contribute to this: hormones, genetics, food allergens, stress, environmental pollutants and even your diet.
While there are many acne products out there on the market, many of these can be drying or harsh on your skin. Some can even make you more sensitive. Products that are prescribed for severe acne, such as Accutane and retinoids, come with medication side effects that are unwanted.
At Solace, we fight acne with the Nelly DeVuyst BioAcne bio-organic line. Its active ingredients such as salicylic acid, silver solution, magnolia extract, burdock root extract, arginine, lavender and tea tree essential oil will help combat both teen and adult acne in a safe, effective way.
How do each of these ingredients work?
- Salicylic Acid helps control and absorb serum while helping to unclog pores.
- Silver Solution acts as an antibacterial cleansing agent while relieving and reducing signs of inflammation.
- Magnolia Extract is rich in magnolol and honokol, which are active inhibitors of bacteria causing impurities in the skin. It also helps to reduce the signs of premature skin aging.
- Burdock Root Extract deeply cleanses, purifies and detoxifies the pores.
- Arginine reduces signs of aging and revitalizes the skin.
- Lavender soothes and reduces redness and irritation. Tea Tree Essential Oil cleanses and purifies skin sensitized by the presence of bacteria.

HEALTH IN THE VALLEY
Northern Essex’s Practical Nursing Program is Tops… Again!
For the second year in a row, Northern Essex Community College’s Licensed Practical Nursing Program has been ranked the top LPN program in Massachusetts by PracticalNursing.org, a national nursing advocacy organization.
The rankings were based on graduate passing rates on the NCLEX-PN (National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses) exam, which is used by state boards of nursing nationwide for testing proficiency and granting licensure. Eighteen programs in Massachusetts were ranked, and Northern Essex received an overall score of 98.04 out of 100. This was an improvement over last year’s score of 96.45 out of 100.
“This is such great news again for our students and the community which counts on Northern Essex for its LPN’s,” said Lisa Bass, coordinator of Northern Essex’s Practical Nursing Program.
