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.

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 scars, 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!”

@theclearskinroad My @clearlybasics update!! The photos on the left were October 2nd and the photos on the right were today (October 11th).
I’ve been using the Power Duo for Clearly Basics for about 2 months now, and now starting to see quick results! My favourite is the “Clear Out” 🤗 Loving the results and exciting to keep using Clearly products!
@clearupchels Guys after using clear out from @clearlybasics for over a month everyday I do truly believe it’s made a MASSIVE difference. My face is smoother, tone is more even and I do think the stubborn spots are going quicker.
I payed for this myself and have not been asked to do this post, I just think If it’ll help someone else why would I not shout about it!
@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 !!!
@megdaviesx I’ve suffered with acne since I was 12 years old. Now at 25 I just accepted that I’d always have acne prone skin. When I came across Clearly, I had pretty much run out of hope, thinking ‘well why the hell not give it a go!’.
Only 2 months into my new routine, and I can’t believe this is my skin!! I am happy to go out of the house without makeup on but doing makeup isn’t a chore anymore either. My confidence has grown and I can’t believe I didn’t find Clearly sooner!
@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🔮🧚🏽♀️
@carliedaniel18 I have suffered with acne since i was 13, After years of medication, and spending absolutely £1000s on products that didn’t work i decided to try prescription oral medication, and it was the hardest 8 months of my life. I got all the side affects, and even though eventually it did clear my skin after being off it for just 3 months my skin got bad again especially hormonally!
I then came across clearly basics, although the reviews were good I was very reluctant as it wasn’t cheap and could be another dud that didn’t work! Eventually I gave in as I always do and it was the best decision ever! I can’t believe I hadn’t come across this sooner, my skin has cleared up so much. It’s made my skin soft and glowy as well, it genuinely is everything in a bottle!
