We uncover the reasons why acne is so prevalent and what’s the most effective way to get rid of acne and pimples.
Mim Padgham, 24, a primary school teacher had suffered from clogged pores for the past 7 years.
She has spent thousands on masks, scrubs, washes, and lotions which claimed to be effective at stopping acne.
When they failed to meet their claims, the fallback excuse would be due to “hormonal acne”, which can’t be controlled.
She felt like she had done something wrong, that she didn’t take care of her skin. When reality was far from the truth.

“I had been to the doctors several times and was given antibiotics and prescription topical creams which were harsh and burnt a layer off my skin. The over-drying effect caused my skin to overcompensate by producing extra oil, leaving my face constantly with an oily sheen. I even tried cutting out dairy and it didn’t work.” – Mim P.
That was before she found a way to manage her breakouts.

…But It’s Always About Diet, Isn’t It?
“Drink more water,” people say – even though she is probably the most hydrated person on the planet…
“Avoid cheese and dairy,” say friends – even though she had cut out dairy entirely for months and saw no difference…
The truth is that there is still NO solid link between acne and diet¹ – Hundreds of thousands of vegans still get acne every year!
It’s a MISCONCEPTION that has infiltrated pop culture like an unwanted meme.
In desperation, we’ve probably had this thought many times …
“So I Need Scrubs, Masks, Facials, and Peels…?”
Many of us have spent thousands on masks, scrubs, peels or cleansers that some YouTuber or Instagrammer recommended to treat our pimples – only to end up with more breakouts…
And thousands more on makeup just to cover up those blemishes.
Forget the marketing hype!
It’s NOT about scrubs, masks, and facials, as they DON’T STAY on your skin long enough to make a difference!²
It is also NOT about using a acne spot treatment to calm down angry pimples*.
*There is little that one can do to stop a pimple once it has surfaced since the body needs to send blood into the area in order to fight off bacterial infection.
In fact, over 90% of the acne treatments use benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid which are unlikely to have the strength to stop adult acne.
Which is why they DO NOT work.
But, there must be a way to stop pimples from surfacing at all. Right?
Yes! There is…
The key is to get rid of clogs trapped deep inside your pores to PREVENT pimples from surfacing rather than trying to treat them.
Retinol – The Gold Standard
Maybe you’ve heard of topical vitamin A (retinoids)?
They are the primary tool doctors use to treat breakouts³…
And for a good reason!
They are very well-researched and it’s the gold standard in promoting skin renewal, reducing blemishes and boosting your skin’s collagen production.
However, they require a doctor’s oversight because they are HARSH, can IRRITATE your skin (topical) and are HARD on your liver (oral).
Before resorting to prescription, look first to retinol, a GENTLER variant⁴ of it.
To further reduce the possibility of irritation, we’ve paired it with other ingredients that balance the pH and amplify the results thereby causing LESS irritation and more targeted results.
AZA – The Unsung Hero?
It’s a mystery why some great skincare ingredients fly under the radar, despite plenty of research proving them worthy of your attention. AZA is one of those ingredients!
AZA is very helpful in flattening existing pimples and diminishing the appearance post-acne marks⁵.
It also reduces skin sensitivity and improves skin texture⁶. In short, AZA is a must-have in your acne treatment.
Meet Clear Out – Effective, Gentle Solution for Clear Skin
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 it contains BOTH retinol + AZA.
This unique formulation is a deadly combination that flattens active pimples and reduces future breakouts.
It took us years of intensive research to create this formulation that can’t be found anywhere else on the market!
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.

Real People with REAL, Lasting Results
Mim (@mimandskin), a teacher from Southampton, battled hormonal cystic acne for over 6 years before she tried the Clear Out…
Individual results may vary
“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 12 months now and it still exceeds my expectations!”
Or how about Toni (@xx.tonilumsden), a stylist from Hertfordshire?
She used creams and tablets that burnt off a layer of her skin!
Plus, she spent over $6500 in treatments that did nothing for her acne…
Then she discovered Clearly Basics and it changed her life…
Individual results may vary
“Never in my life did I imagine my skin would be this clear! Clearly Basics has completely transformed my skin!”
Alisha (@skinwithak) suffered from severe acne since she was 15 and she went on oral medications 3 times before finding Clearly…
Individual results may vary
“A lot of people always asking me what I do to maintain my skin after prescription oral medication. All I can say is ‘Clear Out’ by @clearlybasics is a Godsend ❤️ I started using Clear Out after finishing my course of oral medication and it has helped keep acne at bay. It doesn’t leave me overly dry or flaky which most retinol creams did. I wish I had used the Clear Out before going on prescription oral medication.”
Bea (@beas.bareskin), a student from California, who has tried almost everything…
Ranging from prescription medication, chemical peels to a long list of brands (Clean & Clear, Clearasil, Proactiv, St. Ives, etc.)
…which resulted in even more breakouts, until she found Clearly.
Individual results may vary
“My skin looks so good now! I’ve had a few of my classmates tell me my skin texture looks so nice and even now. 😊
As an acne survivor, I’ll never recommend a product if it’s not effective. If any of you are wondering what products I use that have been giving me positive results, it’s the Clearly Basics’ full lineup.”
Or Ella (@_myskinstory), an aesthetician and a makeup artist who loves using the Clear Out to keep her skin less acne-prone.
“The Clear Out is my favorite and most recommended product to any of my followers who suffer with mild-acne as well as post-acne suffers. The combination of ingredients are unique and work THE BEST in keeping spots at bay as well as improving acne marks & scars.”
And many more reviews….
How is Clear Out any different from other retinol or AZA products?
Most products in the market contain only a SINGLE active ingredient so it does not use multiple pathways to address your skin concern.
Using multiple ingredients simultaneously is more EFFECTIVE, but getting the percentages correct in order to maximize synergy is difficult without precision machinery.
Every ingredient in Clear Out took years to balance in order to maximize synergy: ingredients work together to address your skin concerns with better results and less side effects.
I have sensitive skin. Can I use Clear Out?
Clear Out can work on its own for 95% of the population. The formulation is gentle yet powerful enough to tackle many cases that would otherwise require prescription medication.
For the 5% with very sensitive skin, add the Protective Moisturizer. Using Clear Out with the Protective Moisturizer will ensure that it works for even the most sensitive of skin. The Protective Moisturizer contains a wealth of antioxidants and botanicals that nourish your skin and peptides that simulate your lipid barrier to regrow.
This moisturizer reduces your skin’s sensitivity and reduces general redness/blushing. It doesn’t clog your pores even on the most sensitive skin!
Two best-in-class formulations to flush away dull skin, clogged pores and calm general redness. After a single set, you will see a noticeable improvement in skin tone and texture.
I Have Oily Skin, What’s Best for Me?
Acne and larger pores are often attributed to oily skin.
As pores are clogged, oil may not reach its intended target leading to a vicious cycle of overproduction (clogged pores -> more oil production -> more clogged pores).
Thus we designed the Matte Hydrator, to break the oil production cycle. It keeps your skin matte and supple so that your skin does not need to overproduce as much oil during the day!
Keep your skin clog-free and reduce the need for your skin to produce as much oil. After a single set, you will see a noticeable improvement in skin tone and less of an oily sheen.
Most skincare brands have one, perhaps two formulations that are really effective.
However, Clearly carries FIVE formulations that are UNIQUE and the BEST in its class: Clear Out, Lighten Up, Protective Moisturizer, Matte Hydrator and Dark Mark Defense.
What if it doesn’t work on my skin?
Clear Out is so EFFECTIVE that you will get a full 90-day money back guarantee if you do not see a noticeable improvement after your first bottle. T&Cs apply.
This moneyback guarantee has been on every bottle of Clear Out and we have seen over +98% success rate.
How long will it take to see results?
In the first month, this formulation will trigger a purge of dead skin trapped in your pores which can appear as flakes or low level breakouts.
This purge will peak at week 5 and subside after week 8 of use. At week 10, you will turn over a clearer layer of skin that is less clog prone. See below:
Directions for use?
Clear Out is only used in the evening as part of your night-time routine:
- Wash your face with a cleanser
- Apply toner (if applicable)
- Apply Clear Out (leave-in lotion)
- Apply moisturizer or other skincare that you normally use in the evening
Try Clear Out, Risk FREE!
If you finish an entire bottle and don’t see any results…

@fi_ding I just wanted to post my progress, firstly to thank Clearly for giving me my confidence back! I have suffered on and off with my skin for years, the contraceptive pill kept it under control for a long time but since stopping any hormonal contraception my skins been up and down like a yo-yo! I really didn’t want to go down the route of prescription oral medication, personal choice, so when I read about Clearly Basics (after ALOT of research) I decided to give it a go. Even after a few weeks I could tell a difference, and after a few months, the difference is huge! My skin was angry, painful and inflamed. Its now way way calmer, with only a couple of spots popping up around that time of the month. And I’m overjoyed with that! I next plan on tackling the red marks left behind so I can feel even more confident make up free. It does take time, but be patient, and consistent, and it will work! No foaming face washes seem to have helped for me too. Thanks again clearly 🤗😀
@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!
@thoughtsofhealing 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!
@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🔮🧚🏽♀️
@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 !!!
@_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!!
