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 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.

@myfriendacne At first I thought that my skin was THE thing that changed the most. It clearly is seeing from the surface. And here must say a huuuuge thank you to @clearlybasic for supporting me and give me the opportunity to take care of my skin.
After I looked at my pictures from last year I was shocked how my attitude has changed towards myself. I love myself more. I accept my skin, my body and my inner self so much more than a year before where I had the feeling to be perfect to my own imaginations and for other people.
@a_triple_shot_of_e Opening up about my acne struggle!
Most of my acne comes from wearing makeup all day & then going right into sports. Even though I would use facial wipes before I started sports, I still broke out! The more I would try to hide it, the worst I made it. I have tried everything… when @clearlybasics reached out I thought, why not try it && surprisingly IT WORKED!!! After a few weeks my skin was clear.
Now unfortunately since I have been out of it, my acne is coming back. I will always be honest with y’all & if something doesn’t work, I will let you know!!! #clearlybasics WORKS!
@mysevereacneblog I’ve been using @clearlybasics for over 4 months but here’s a difference from June 3rd and August 2nd!
The ingredients in @clearlybasics Clear Out is AMAZING for hyperpigmentation.
A complete GAME CHANGER!
@_myskinstory 😭 I feel like I’m an addict and someone has taken away my drugs 😂
Saturday night I came to the end of my @clearlybasics Clear Out bottle. After consistently applying it every night for 3 months along side Niacinamide & Zinc so last night I had nothing to apply. (Right picture: a few days previous. Left picture: This morning) As soon as I woke up I knew it different feel great! 😭
Regardless off the other amazing benefits that a 2% Retinol & AZA has; I JUST WANT MY GLOW BACK!! I’ll dedicate my next post to the ingredients and how they ‘clearly’ work!!
@myacnepage So there’s been some progress with my scarring🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼.
These are Clearly Basics results for 1 month of using the lighten up, you can use CODE EMMA for 10% off at the checkout (only if u want)
@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 !!!
