We know that one pimple is one too many. We have the tips and products you need to be a skin health Houdini.

First, beware of using too many devices on your skin at once. We get it- 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.

Skin Care

Skin Cleanser

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 the skin and soothe irritation. A perfect example of a product that balances effective and soothing ingredients is the Clear Cell Salicylic Gel Cleanser. With a blend of salicylic acid and clinically proven peptide Granactive Acne, 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 future lesions and calm skin while the current lesions heal.

Another perfect example of a powerful yet soothing product is our newly launched Clear Cell Restoring Serum. This oil-free, lightweight moisturizing serum soothes and absorbs surface oils for a mattifying effect. Vitamin B6 derivative helps to restore skin’s overall healthy balance by visually minimizing pore size, shine and sebum production while botanicals reduce the appearance of irritation and inflammation.

Healthy Skin

Acne Lotion

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 to 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.
