Acne Vulgaris is a skin condition that is often associated with our teen years and puberty. However, adult acne is a condition that is on the rise, so know that you’re not alone! Nonetheless, this skin condition can be a pain to deal with as well as a real source of insecurity, regardless of age.
There can be different types of breakouts; both mild and severe. Some suffer from spots because of their oily skin type while others are not aware that their breakouts are caused by another skin condition; such as rosacea. Check out our tutorial on covering rosacea and redness here.
Nevertheless, no matter whether you’ve got papules or pustules; whiteheads, or blackheads, you can help diminish flare-ups with a solid daily skincare routine. Follow the steps below to help keep your complexion smooth, glowing and fresh!
Step 1: Cleanse
Cleansing your skin is important regardless of your skin type. However, for acne skin, it’s important to use a cleanser that will target your breakouts. Clear Skin Cleanser helps to thoroughly cleanse the skin while treating breakouts. Formulated with wax beads that offer mild exfoliation without irritating skin, as well as 2% Salicylic Acid to refine the skin’s texture, prevent acne and control oil production. The wax beads are used because they dissolve after use without having a negative impact on the environment.
Step 2: Mask
Using a clay mask, like our Refining Mask, is a fantastic way to absorb excess oil and purify the skin. Sulfur is a great ingredient which acts as a healing antibacterial oil with balancing and cell-regenerating benefits. It’s a face mask infused with non-comedogenic Kaolin to absorb sebum while drawing out impurities & toxins to leave your skin calmer, clearer and shine-free.
Step 3: Serum
Our Renew Serum is formulated with 1% Salicylic Acid for skin-renewing, anti-acne and anti-irritant properties. It helps reveal a younger and more radiant complexion. Plus a serum like the Renew Serum includes ingredients that condition the skin while regulating oil and sebum production. Additionally, the anti-inflammatory D-panthenol nourishes the skin, promotes cellular proliferation and repairs tissue.
Step 4: Treatment
With a multitude of benefits, Clear Skin Spot Treatment and Clear Complexion Pads are a must have for anyone who suffers from acne, as they specifically target congested skin.
