Conditioning Your Skin

Often people with sensitive skin are afraid to moisturize as it may further clog their pores. However, if you choose the right type of moisturizer, it will restore your lipid barrier and reduce the load so that your skin doesn’t need to produce as much oil (thereby less acne):

Understanding Your Lipid Barrier

The topmost layer of your skin consists of dead skin cells that are held together by lipids. These lipids serve as a “mortar” that prevents chemical or biological irritants from entering the skin and to keep water and natural moisturizing factors from leaving the skin.

Weak lipid barriers and an accumulation of dead skin cells are one of the biggest triggers of acne. This is most evident in people with combination acne-prone skin as we see more severe breakouts on their dry/sensitive skin rather than their oily skin.

Accelerate the healing/repair by using Clearly Basics Protective Moisturizer in order to get your skin back to top condition.

Moisturizing for Skin Repair

Formulated with resveratrol, an antioxidant that relieves redness and protects the skin from UV damage; peptides, which are essential in repairing, rejuvenating and strengthening the skin, as well as boosting collagen; and aloe vera, a powerful antioxidant that absorbs free radicals, harmful UV radiation and fosters healing of the skin, the Protective Moisturizer is jam-packed with ingredients that repair and nourish the skin.

The Protective Moisturizer does not cause breakouts. It was originally designed for our users on oral acne medication. After a month of consistent use, you will find that your skin sensitivity has reduced and your skin is a lot less prone to irritation or flushing/blushing

Moisturizing to Reduce Oil

For the oily areas of your skin, consider using our oil-free Matte Hydrator to keep your lipid barrier moisturized for longer so that your skin does not need to produce as much oil. Hyaluronic acid is a key component of your skin and can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. It is strong enough to pull moisture out of the air and deliver it into your skin.

If you have had issues in the past whereby the hyaluronic acid sat on your skin or created a sticky film, this is because the hyaluronic acid is too large to penetrate into your skin. The Matte Hydrator uses 100% medical grade ultra low weight hyaluronic acid so it easily penetrates into your skin where it can bring moisture into your skin.

Use this formulation in the morning and it will keep your oily areas looking matte for longer throughout the day.
