This is the home regimen I give to my clients in my acne clinic in Portland, Oregon, and I will be happy to help you get to a clear skin too!
You will receive a personalized online acne consultation after you fill out the below questionnaire and order this Acne Starter Kit from Face Reality.
The kit includes a cleanser, a toner, an acne med, a hydrating gel and a morning mandelic serum. You will also receive a detailed week by week user guide.
First, you need to understand that you cannot wash acne away; acne is the result of dead cells and oil stuck in a skin pore. To get rid of the acne, you need to push this "plug" of dead cells and oils out of each pore. This is done by simultaneously using a benzoyl peroxyde gel and keeping your skin moist and supple. This will allow the "plug" to work its way out.
Benzoyl Peroxide has a unique dual mechanism that works as follows: Once it penetrates the pore, it releases oxygen which in turn, suppresses bacteria. Its deep exfoliating properties then flush out the clogged pore, leaving the skin acne-free.
Mandelic Acid in the morning serum helps reduce acne discoloration, prevents bacteria proliferation, and gently exfoliates.
The cleanser, toner and hydrating gel round out the kit to keep your skin moist and supple.
