A Quick Solution for Adult Acne: Retinol and AZA

Combine ingredients in order to stop adult acne.

Adult acne sufferers often coast through their teenage years with the occasional pimple but changes in lifestyle and stress/hormones lead to persistent breakouts.

They have tried SO MANY different acne treatments only to be misled by false hope that the same ingredient sold by another company would make a difference.

Over 90% of acne treatments use a single active ingredient in their products: either benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid.

If you have used these ingredients in the past with poor results, it is time to upgrade to ingredients that are stronger and more effective.

So what is more effective?

Looking at the playbook which dermatologists use to treat acne, retinoids are the dermatologist’s first choice for treatment followed by AZA.

Combining BOTH retinol + AZA as a pair to attack acne from multiple fronts will help to stop even the most stubborn adult acne. It works by simultaneously flattening existing pimples while making it harder for future clogs to form.

These two ingredients working together are more gentle on the skin since they balance each other out.


Retinol – The Gold Standard

Retinol (a gentler variant of retinoids) is a derivative of vitamin A which is common in carrots, eggs and sweet potatoes.

“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, MD².

The benefits of retinol are numerous:

1. Perpetually Unclogs Your Pores

Retinol flushes out dead skin and flushes out clogs trapped inside your pores. When your pores are unclogged, pimples and blackheads rarely form.

The gentle exfoliation also leaves your skin fresh and decongested.

2. Reduces the Appearance of Acne Scars and Hyperpigmentation

Retinol stimulates new skin cell growth, so it will give your skin a smoother and more even texture. This can make superficial acne scars less obvious.

For red acne scars and inflammation, dermatologists use a combination of retinol + AZA. This powerful combination can flatten existing pimples and reduce future breakouts simultaneously.

3. Reduces Fine Lines & Wrinkles

The benefits of retinol go beyond just acne. It’s also a popular anti-aging ingredient.

It stimulates the skins production of collagen to fill in the look of scars, fine lines and wrinkles and makes the complexion brighter and smoother.

If you have adult acne, retinol is your primary ingredient to fight acne and to slow the aging process.


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 scars³.

It also reduces skin sensitivity and improves skin texture⁴. In short, AZA is a must-have in your acne treatment.

@mimandskin Individual 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 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…

Never in my life did I imagine my skin would be this clear! Clearly Basics has completely transformed my skin!”

@skinwithak Individual Individual results may vary

All I can say is ‘Clear Out’ by @clearlybasics is a Godsend ❤️ It doesn’t leave me overly dry or flaky which most retinol creams did.” I wish I came across Clearly Basics before starting oral medication as I would have purchased these and wouldn’t have had to put my body through so much!”


Or Ella (@_myskinstory), an aesthetician and a makeup artist who has not found anything like the Clear Out to keep her breakouts under control.

“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.”


FAQ

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!

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!

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:

@xx.tonilumsden Individual results may vary.

Directions for Use?

Clear Out is only used in the evening as part of your night-time routine:

  1. Wash your face with a cleanser
  2. Apply toner (if applicable)
  3. Apply Clear Out (leave-in lotion)
  4. 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…

You’re entitled to a full refund within 90 days! T&Cs apply.

@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!

@startingtolovemyself ✨Not a pimple in sight!!!✨

It’s been about 3 weeks since I started using @clearlybasics Clear Out, Lighten Up and the Protective Moisturizer (the Complete Trio) and my skin has improved so much and I definitely think it’s from the Clear Out formula most of all!

It really is a miracle in a bottle! I’m excited to see how my skin changes even more in the next few weeks and months using them!

@aishx I have been using this product for the last 3 months and I swear by it!

My nasty pimps went away within days, my blemish marks were lightened and the size of my pores decreased drastically! In fact I feel that my skin brightened up a lot and my makeup looked smoother too!

@brittaneyshanae I swear the Power Duo (Clear Out and Lighten Up) are a GOD-send! I’ve been using both consistently for 3 months now and my skin has NEVER looked or felt better! I haven’t experienced a breakout since March and more than 80% of my hyperpigmentation is GONE!

I’m so grateful to have finally found a product that actually works for my skin!

If you’re dealing with acne breakouts and hyperpigmentation, you should def research Clearly Basics.

@pimpledgirl The 1st week was amazed! Fascinating skin texture, there were no stinging. The 2nd week were pretty same. The 3rd week – purging starred – bumpy skin, redness. The 4th week – same but I added #ProtectiveMoisturiser either from @clearlybasics and in three days redness was reduced. The 5-6th weeks – skin smoother, less red, breaking out badly. The 7-8th week – is it my skin? not red (even after washing as it used to be).

I’d say the amount of pustules has been reduced in 85%. I still have some tiny-tiny pimples and will keep going with mu treatment. • Honestly I’m very grateful to Clearly Basics • I’ll keep you updated.

@acneisntugly Thank you @clearlybasics for being on this journey with me for the past 5 months.

No more green concealer or green primer! My skin tone is so much better, I don’t use as much foundation as I once did, I don’t constantly worry I look like I have chicken pox and I feel much more confident within my skin!

The power duo really has been an absolute game changer for my skin and I’m so glad I’ve shared my results day in and day out so we could all see this progression.
