Know the Ingredients
Salicylic Acid (a.k.a. Beta Hydroxy Acid or BHA): Works below the skin's surface to reduce oil inside pores
Benzoyl Peroxide: Kills bacteria located on the skin's surface and trapped in pores.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs—includes Glycolic Acid): Help exfoliate dead cells on the skin's surface.
Sulfur: Draws out excess oil from clogged pores.
Retinoids: Improve cell turnover to reveal smoother skin.
Understanding Acne & Breakouts
A blemish forms when a pore becomes clogged with dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria, then becomes inflamed.
Blemishes can be whiteheads, blackheads, or pimples.
Acne is a series of multiple and consistent breakouts where bacteria is present.
Hormones, stress, genetics, and even pollution can lead to breakouts.
A blemish starts deep within a pore, weeks before any signs of infection surface. So prevention and care are key.
Squeezing, popping, or picking at a blemish can lead to scars and discoloration.
