Clear Your Complexion for Acne & Blemish Prone Skin

What causes acne and blemishes?

Acne is most commonly linked to changes in hormone levels during puberty, pregnancy or the menstrual cycle. The NHS have said that roughly 80% of people aged 11 to 30 are affected by acne. The main cause of acne is from our body producing an excess amount of sebum (commonly referred to as oil) which can enrage the usually harmless bacterium and lead to inflammation, blemishes and pus.

Although extremely common within society, there is still a strong stigma attached towards acne and blemish prone skin. The demand for treatments has led to a variety of cleansers, toners and creams to help treat oily acne prone skin.

Best cleansers for your oily acne prone skin

Unfortunately, there is no miracle to completely prevent acne. Clinically proven acne products have been developed to tackle the excess sebum and effectively diminish the appearance of acne and blemishes. When looking for the best acne skin care. Our range of aesthetic skincare, designed for oily, acne and blemish prone skin types include powerful ingredients:

  • Glycolic Acid: Dubbed the holy grail for exfoliation, perfect for removing impurities off the outermost layer of dead cells from the complexion.
  • Salicylic Acid: Exactly like glycolic acid, except salicylic acid is oil soluble meaning that it penetrates pores rather than just the outer layering surface and making it well suited to exfoliate oily skin.
  • Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA): Derived from fruits, nuts, milk or sugar. These acids are hydrophilic (attracted to water) and break down the bonds between cells to allow for easier exfoliation.
  • Polyhydroxy Acids (PHA): Special types of AHA (see above) that work to strengthen the skins barrier function and help tackle skin impurities without causing irritation.
