Acne Problems?

Acne Solutions Clear Skin System

I absolutely love this stuff! It saved my skin and I'm not just saying that because I work for Clinique. I truly believe in this product. All it takes is a daily routine thats 3 steps morning and night.

"The Clear Skin System wastes no time in giving blemishes the boot. Does it without the dryness and irritation that generally gets skin into trouble. It's simple, scientific. Gentle exfoliation opens clogged pores, evicts blemish-causing bacteria. Targeted ingredients rush in to accelerate treatment. Keeps skin clearer, longer, too."

So, i switched birth controls and currently have mirena which doesn't help my acne. When I stopped the other birth control my acne started to really flare up and become a problem for me. I tried using other OTC products before this. For some reason this 3 step was my last resort before going to a dermatologist. Crazy to think I was working for Clinique but never wanted to give this product a shot until I went to school and heard fabulous testimonies. The only thing I add to this is the dramatically different moisturizing gel before the clearing moisturizer just to give my skin an extra, oil-free, hydrating boost. 

Let's rewind a bit.... What causes acne? When your pores are clogged with excess oil and dead skin cells the oxygen supply is cut off. Acne causing agents LOVE oxygen starved pores (clogged pores are the acne causes agents homes). The longer each pore is clogged, the more aggravated the acne causing agents become which results in irritation and infection which results in a pimple.... To fight this common problem you must open up the pores with exfoliation thats gentle so you don't continue to irritate the skin. Oxygen rids the pores of acne causing agents. Once the pores are open acne medication can begin treatment

With the cleansing foam, clarifying lotion and clearing moisturizer I believe this product works! However, if you have cynic acne that starts at the sebaceous glands and is very painful you must see a dermatologist. 

When using this product you wash your face with the cleansing foam. Then, you shake up the clarifying lotion because it has mattifying deposits, sweep that over your face once with a cotton ball and follow with the moisturizer.

  1. I had so bad acne when I was 15 thankfully its gone now but this seems like a good solution xx

  2. This use to work for me, but it dried out my skin and my acne did not improve. =(

  3. did you ever try adding an oil free moisturizer to the 3 step?

    1. Yes I did, and it still didn't do anything. I think it is because my hormones is causing the acne.
