When you're battling blemishes, it's important to have a skincare regimen in place that works to heal and nourish your skin while fighting acne-causing bacteria. Most regimens for acne-prone skin consist of a cleanser, toner, spot treatment and moisturizer with the occasional mask thrown into the mix. However, one of the most underrated products for treating acne is a good serum. Serums contain the highest concentration of active ingredients you can find in over-the-counter products. This means they actually work and with continued use can help give you the skin you’ve always wanted.
Look for Effective Ingredients
Not all serums are created equal. Look for ones that contain ingredients like Salicylic Acid and Pregnenolone, which both work to deeply exfoliate, eliminate impurities and help balance oil production. Willowherb, Tea Tree Oil and Aloe Vera are also great for acne-prone skin to help soothe the appearance of inflammation. Unlike a lot of acne treatments that contribute to redness, these ingredients help calm the skin and reduce irritation. Clarity by COSMEDIX contains all of these good-for-you ingredients plus Witch Hazel, Grapefruit Peel Oil and Rosemary Leaf Oil.
Find a Serum That's Gentle
Sure the benzoyl peroxide spot treatment you've been using helps heal your blemishes, but at what cost? If you're like most of us, the cost is dry, flaky, red and irritated skin. Finding a serum that is both gentle and effective will be the key to getting and maintaining clear skin. Clarity works to exfoliate the skin and clarify clogged pores that cause breakouts while also helping to nourish and calm the skin. As an added bonus, it can be used as a concentrated spot treatment to replace any benzoyl peroxide creams that you may be currently using. Try even laying it under your Clear mask for an added benefit! Irritation and redness and most importantly, blemishes will be issues of the past when you incorporate Clarity into your acne regimen.
