Whether you’re heading back to school or just hanging out with friends, don’t let breakouts bring you down. Take back control of your complexion with commonsense tips and uncommonly effective products from Clear Essence Cosmetics. It’s time to clear up problem skin and greet the day with confidence.
While most acne sufferers will see a difference in the first couple weeks of their skincare program, it can take up to 28 days for your skin cells to turn over. Getting your skin in balance requires time, consistency and discipline. Establish a regimen of cleaning and treating your skin twice a day to eliminate pore-clogging excess oil and cellular debris. Using an exfoliating cleanser, like Clear Essence Medicated Cleansing Bar or Blemish Control Wash Formula, is an important first step toward clarifying the appearance of problem skin. As exfoliating beads gently remove dead skin, soothing botanicals calm visible irritation and unsightly redness. These powerful formulas also prep the skin for additional correctives, like Clear Essence Medicated Fade Cream or Skin Lightening Serum.
Scratching, pinching and squeezing might feel like the right thing to do, but avoid giving into the temptation. “Popping” blemishes can lead to permanent scarring, increased irritation and redness. Additionally, dirt and bacteria from unclean fingers can find their way into pores, making matters worse. A soothing cleansing of the skin with Clear Essence Blemish Control Wash Formula can keep pores clean and help create a more comfortable complexion. Packed with problem-solving salicylic acid, a non-foaming application in the morning can absorb excess oil and put you in the fast lane to clearer looking skin.
To minimize the spread of bacteria and other impurities, be sure to wash all pillowcases, towels and makeup brushes weekly. If your skin is particularly sensitive, look for a detergent that’s free of irritating dyes and fragrances. When you’re out and about, avoid over-cleansing your skin, especially with harsh cleansers that contain sodium lauryl sulfate or alcohol. These common additives can rob skin of vital moisture, prompting it to produce more sebum–natural oil that conditions the skin–than normal, increasing the risk of clogged pores and breakouts. Try to also avoid touching your face, and keep long hair tied back throughout the day.
Don’t Sweat It
After exercise, be sure to use a mild cleanser to wash away sweat, which can attract pore-clogging impurities and lead to body acne. For persistent blemishing, turn again to our Medicated Cleansing Bar or Blemish Control Wash Formula. An exfoliating back scrub or loofah can also help slough away potentially pore-clogging dead skin and debris; however, exercise caution when using exfoliating products with an abrasive surface to avoid irritating the skin.
