Acne products that promote the skin’s natural exfoliation are essential for any anti-acne regimen.
Regular exfoliation with ingredients such as salicylic acid can help the buildup of dead cells that
can cause the pores to become clogged. The exfoliation provided by acids and retinol can also help improve the appearance of
skin discoloration caused by past acne, enhance skin smoothness,
and promote more even, radiant skin tone.
SkinCeuticals acne products include Blemish + Age Cleanser, Blemish + Age Toner and Blemish + Age Defense treatment serum. This range provides acid-based
exfoliation to help clear away dead cells and help to prevent clogged pores, refine surface texture, and provide
brightening benefits for the skin.
Retinol 0.3 in the evening (as tolerated) complements
the results achieved with our Blemish + Age acne products by further enhancing cell turnover to maintain clear pores,
while improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and
discoloration caused by sun damage and past acne marks.
All skin types—including oily and acne-prone—require extra hydration as well. A non-comedogenic,
oil-free moisturizer with hyaluronic acid, such as Phyto Corrective, is ideal for hydrating the skin without clogging the pores.
Sunscreen is another essential daily skincare product
for acne-prone skin. First, it’s a myth that sun exposure helps clear up acne. Although a suntan may improve
the appearance of acne at first, the damage and dryness caused by exposure to UV rays can cause an increased
production of sebum, increasing the likelihood of an acne breakout . A properly formulated non-comedogenic
sunscreen can help to protect oily and acne-prone skin from UV rays without clogging pores.
