Misery loves company. Acne isn’t just an event. Rather, it’s a perfect storm of multiple events that happen at the same time, each of which has to be interrupted for x-amount of time in order to win a little complexion clarity. Combining modalities to fight all three acne factors simultaneously is really the only way to beat your breakouts.
Acne ain’t just about the oil, darling. In fact, your skin could be a total grease factory with nary a pimple in sight. Or it could be as parched as the Mojave Desert and still be festooned in breakouts. In fact, oil is just part of the problem. Big picture, here are the big bad three inflammatory acne factors and what should be done about them.
ACNE FACTOR #1: DEAD SKIN CELLS (I.E. KERATINIZATION)
WHAT TO DO
Home care: Exfoliating cleansers and treatment products containing AHA’s, BHA’s and benzoyl peroxide that encourage cell turnover.
SKINFIVE treatment: The Refresher that lightly peels the skin without irritation, and physically removes debris from the pores.
