Combine ingredients in order to flatten existing breakouts and reduce new acne at the same time
Getting rid of existing pimples quickly without causing scarring often require different products and tools than stopping new breakouts from surfacing all together.
Yet our pharmacists have found a way to simultaneously flatten existing pimples while making it difficult for new breakouts to form.
But before we get into the details, let’s address the elephant in the room:
Don’t Pop the Pimple
It may be tempting to squeeze out a large pimple but doing so will likely make the situation worse, dermatologists say.
Think of a pimple as a shaft keeping the bacteria contained inside a pore as the body fights off infection.
“Popping anything causes your skin to physically break apart, making it more susceptible to infection and an even bigger problem than what was originally there in the first place,” says Dendy Engelman, MD, a board-certified dermatologist.
Furthermore, the squeezing action may drive pus and bacteria even deeper into your skin, Your fingers may introduce new kids of bacteria into an open wound leading to complications. It may also lead to permanent scarring.
The Key to Smoother Skin
In order to reduce the inflammation in a pimple while simultaneously killing off the bacteria, use AZA.
AZA¹ is a naturally occurring acid found in on your skin. It has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties that will quickly calm down a big breakout (AZA is the primary anti-inflammatory agent in aspirin).
Apply AZA as a leave-in lotion once every evening. A great deal of research has shown that AZA will significantly diminish the appearance of skin blemishes, fade post-acne marks and improve skin tone.

Next, Clear the Scars
Once AZA has flattened the pimple, you are often left with a red scar that lingers longer than the pimple itself. This red scar is due to residual blood and dilated blood vessels that were used to fight off infection.
To fade the appearance of red acne marks, use Lighten Up. This is a unique formulation that is designed to dissipate residual blood and reduce the appearance of dilated blood vessels.
Lighten Up is effective as it uses botanical complexes in combination to soothe the skin: marigold flower, chamomile flower and tea tree oil.
Apply the Lighten Up both morning and evening and you should see a significant reduction within a month. The lotion does not clog pores and does not irritate sensitive skin.
Win the War Against Acne
To truly win the war, you need an ingredient that works inside the pore to flush out dead skin so that it does not accumulate and create a clog.
If you look at the algorithm which dermatologists use to treat acne, retinoids are the first choice to treat acne because of its ability to get into the pore and flush out dead skin.
“Retinol is the absolute backbone of an acne treatment since they treat acne by de-clogging pores. They also work to normalize skin cell turnover and act as an anti-inflammatory. Furthermore, have been proven to improve skin discoloration and texture and, therefore, restore the skin from prior outbreaks,” – Melissa Levin, MD.²
Meet Clear Out – Powerful Yet Gentle
Clear Out is a unique formulation combining all the ingredients listed above into a single lotion.
Most acne products only have a SINGLE active ingredient. However, to maximize effectiveness and minimize irritation, Clearly Basics spent years formulating Clear Out so that AZA + retinol work together. These two ingredients are the dermatologist’s top choices in treating acne as they are a deadly combination against active pimples and future breakouts..
Clear Out flattens existing pimples, reduces redness and makes it harder for future pimples to form by flushing out dead skin before clogs can accumulate inside your pores.
98% of people who use the Clear Out see significant improvements. If you don’t see a noticeable improvement after using your first bottle of Clear Out, you can get a full refund through Clearly’s moneyback guarantee.

“Out of everything I’ve tried over the 6 years I’ve battle acne on and off it’s by far stood out as being one of the most effective with no side effects (after the initial “purge”). I’ve used nothing but Clearly Basics for 11 months now and it still exceeds my expectations!”
Or how about Toni (@xx.tonilumsden), a stylist from Hertfordshire?
She spent over $6500 in acne products and treatments that did nothing for her acne but damage her skin …
Then she discovered the Power Duo and it changed her life…

@skinwithak @clearlybasics helped maintain my skin after oral prescription and honestly their products have helped so many, I get many DM’s thanking me for recommending Clearly Basics and how it’s helped them.
If I knew about @clearlybasics prior to my course of oral prescription I would’ve definitely gone with using Clear Out for sure!
@beas.bareskin Clearly Basics have been with me for about a week and I’m so happy I’ve been using their product!!!!!
My fave between these 3 is the “Lighten up” one because it has definitely helped with the redness! The redness on my cheeks are slowly dimming down and the texture of my skin is so soft and smooth.
You may not be able to tell cuz pictures don’t do it justice but if you were to have felt my skin before I used their products compared to now you can definitely feel the difference !!!
@by.emmataylor CLEAR OUT💙💙💙 gets rid of blackheads and whiteheads which is an added bonus.
It really improved my skin texture and most of all it removed spots. It’s worth the try really, because you can even get your money back if you don’t like the products, what are you waiting for? -Emma xxx
@deannaskin Over the past month and a half I’ve noticed a massive change to the appearance and texture of my skin since using @clearlybasics. Honestly the most effective products (vegan of course) I’ve used all year. Not only has the redness of my spots reduced, but I rarely get painful under-the-skin bumps or huge whiteheads anymore. My scars have also faded so quickly 👀
If your skin is similar to mine I’d 100% recommend that you implement these products into your skincare routine.
I’m only a few weeks in using these products but the results have been so positive🔮🧚🏽♀️
@gemskin__ A little progress goes a long way! 🙌🏻 In the first picture I think my skin was purging from the first week of using @clearlybasics ‘Clear Out’. I believe I actually cried either before or after I took this photo, my skin was super painful and I felt so ugly and self conscious!
The second picture is 5 weeks after using Clear Out, just scarring (being helped by using Lighten Up) and no actives!
I’m so happy with the results so far using these products and they have been the only thing that has helped my skin!
Michaela Holzhuter I’ve struggled with adult acne for years. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars trying to grab at the next promise for clear skin. Clearly Basics is the first brand that actually worked for me! It’s simple (it actually decreased the time I was spending caring for my skin), it’s scale-able (buy one product or by seven!), and it works. I couldn’t be happier with this product and the continuous progress it has provided!
