Anyone who suffers from acne will tell you they would try (and most have tried) anything and everything to get rid of unsightly acne lesions. But you don’t have to suffer from acne to know that even one pimple is one pimple too many. This year, introduce Image Skincare Clear Cell to your routine and become a skin health Houdini!
First, beware of using too many devices on your skin at once. We get it’s tempting to zap your skin with the latest at home laser treatment, dermal roller or microdermabrasion machine, but using these devices in the wrong way can spell big trouble for your skin. Stripping the skin of all sebum or exfoliating too deeply can actually cause oil production to become worse, causing an eruption of the very condition you are so desperately trying to fix.
Next, you’ll want to make sure the products you’re using have ingredients that not only fight acne with proven clinical results, but also that balance and soothe irritation. A perfect example of a product that balances and contains soothing ingredients is the Clear Cell Salicylic Gel Cleanser. With a blend of Salicylic Acid and clinically proven peptide Granactive, acne lesions are reduced and eliminated deep in the pore. Rounding out the formulation are a host of anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial ingredients to prevent further lesions and calm skin while the current lesions heal.
Another perfect example of a powerful yet soothing product is our Clear Cell Restoring Serum. This oil-free, lightweight, moisturising serum soothes and absorbs surface oils for a mattifying effect. Vitamin B6 derivative helps to restore skin’s overall healthy balance by visually minimising pore size, shine and sebum production while botanicals reduce the appearance of irritation and inflammation.
Keeping in mind it’s important to maintain a balance of moisture in the skin while treating acne, we recommend spot treating with lotions and masques rather than applying them all over the skin. Try our Clear Cell Medicated Acne Masque twice per week for five minutes so start. As you gauge your skin’s sensitivity to the ingredients you can begin leaving it on a bit longer if necessary. Another product that’s sure to zap pesky pimples in a flash is our Clear Cell Medicated Acne Lotion. Simply spot treat nightly to diminish pimples and reduce inflammation and irritation.
Following these steps will help you along your journey to a clear, fresh complexion. As always, we recommend regular visits to a licensed skincare professional in addition to a home regimen.
