Because a primary cause of acne is excessive skin protein, we need daily (but appropriate) exfoliation, usually in the form of a gentle scrub and a friendly acid blend. Most patients respond to this therapeutic blend of physical and acid exfoliation best, because the combination tackles not only the extra keratin protein, but the clogged oil and cosmetics that get trapped inside the follicle as well. Our VITAMINscrub and, CLEARify acid serum are designed to address both concerns in a gentle but highly effective manner. Users report a visible difference after each use. Not exaggerating.
Evaluate All Skin and Hair Items Immediately
Check for secret pore-cloggers ASAP, and be shocked what you find. Even an expensive makeup from Bloomingdale’s can have Ethylhexyl Palmitate or Isopropyl Myristate. That “natural” skincare primer you scored can have a coconut base. The Kevin Murphy conditioner that loves your hair may not love your skin, and could be leaving Shea Butter residue on your neck and pillowcase, causing breakouts on your dominant sleep side. Take 10 minutes to manually check all of your skin/body/hair products using our list of pore clogging ingredients. This is the single most important step in controlling your skin, friend. We made it as easy as we could for you!
Avoid Accidental Acne Triggers
This includes, fabric softener, Tide “Pods,”, body/hand lotion, hair products, not washing your face after working out or, kissing contact with a SO who uses a pore-clogging lotion.
Drink at least 4 liters of water per day, and avoid alcohol and caffeine until you’ve gotten the breakouts under control. Acne is synonymous with internal inflammation, so until inflammation subsides do not add any more by downing espresso and hitting the bars. It won’t go well (believe us; we’ve been there).
Check Your Supplements!
Any supplements with overly high levels (more than 100% RDI) of Zinc, Vitamin D, Calcium, Ashwagandha, Biotin, B12, or Niacin will trigger a Testosterone surge and will affect facial and body acne, specifically near the chin and lip, under the jaw, by the ears, and even in the hairline.
