A consistent cleansing and treatment regimen can be effectively reinforced using maintenance products such as Refining Mask to keep acne under control. This clay based mask featuring Sulfur, known for its healing, antibacterial, oil balancing properties and cell-regenerating functions along with Zinc and Tea Tree Oil can work magic when used twice a week.
Few ingredients have been proven to target and treat acne most effectively. The two most researched and highly recommended are Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid. Both have the ability to treat acne bacteria deep within the skin. Salicylic Acid also helps to exfoliate excess dead skin cells which is a big contributor to acne breakouts as dead skin cells mixed with excess oil cause pores to become congested, leading to pimples, black heads/white heads.
The Glo Therapeutics Clean Skin Kit offers effective products leveraging the acne fighting power of both Salicylic Acid and Benzoyl Peroxide: Clear Acne Cleanser, Clear Complexion Pads and Clear Anti-blemish Treatment.
Keeping skin hydrated and balanced is critical to any skin care regimen, especially when treating acne. Select an oil-free moisturizer specifically designed for acne prone skin and look for ingredients that help regulate sebum production, mattify the skin and helps to reduce inflammation.
NOTE: It is important to note that overuse of Benzoyl Peroxide can over dry the skin, which can worsen acne. Speak to your skin care therapist who can best advise on products and use.
