Winter isn’t known for being gentle on the skin. If you suffer from acne and blemishes, the harsh conditions can make your skin feel and look even worse. Whether you’ve tried it all or have resigned yourself to months of frustration, we’ve created products that can help you glow even when you’d rather hide away indoors.
Before you give up entirely and hibernate till spring, here are a few of our favorite acne-fighting products to add to your routine:
Acne is caused by clogged pores; this clog begins with dead skin cells and sebum oil. Sebum oil is a naturally occurring oil that keeps skin from drying out. When the dead skin cells shed, instead of rising to the surface, the sebum oil keeps the cells trapped in the pore, which leads to bacteria, thus leading to what we call acne. Inside the pore, the bacteria have the perfect opportunity to multiply quickly leading to inflammation.
One of the best ways to stop acne is to prevent it entirely. Our Acne Control Serum stops this process before it has a chance to start, reducing sebum levels by up to 70%.
Not only is the serum quick-drying, but it also contains Micronized Benzoyl Peroxide, the world’s first non-irritating form of benzoyl peroxide, and Glycolic Acid, which exfoliates the skin and refines texture. With the ability to kill acne-causing bacteria on contact, this is the perfect product to add to your rotation.
For those looking to spot treat, topical Acne Correction Pads are a great way to target recurring or problem blemishes. The pads soften and soothe inflamed skin while reducing irritation using a botanically infused formula.
Formulated with a unique combination of three acne-fighting acids, Salicylic Acid 2%, Glycolic Acid 5%, and Lactic Acid 5%, the pre-absorbed pads deliver a gentle, microchemical peel that exfoliates and directly addresses clogged pores and deep-seated pustules. The knockout combo of acids even acts as a micro-peel to stimulate cellular turnover revealing clear, even skin.
While everyone struggling with acne should have a few go-to products to directly treat breakouts, having a reliable daily cleanser is just as important.
Our clarifying cleanser decongests, tones, and tightens skin — leaving it invigorated without drying out the face. Additionally, mild exfoliation of dead skin cells helps keep the pores clear of debris, reducing the number of breakouts and keeping the skin, as the name suggests, clear.
No matter how great your skincare routine is, a great moisturizer is a must in the winter. Our Intensive Recovery Cream is specifically formulated to reduce irritation and redness, making it the perfect complement to any acne-fighting products used in tandem.
The result is increased moisturization and protection leading to less sensitive and less dry skin. Round out your regimen and stop worrying about peeling, flakey skin during the coldest part of the year.
