It is a common misconception that people with normal/oily skin do not need to moisturize. Often people believe that moisturizing will further clog their pores. However, if you choose the right type of moisturizer for your skin, it will reduce the load so that your skin doesn’t need to produce as much oil.
Moisturizing to Reduce Oil
If you have oily 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 off the surface of your skin and deliver it deeper 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.
Moisturizing for Skin Repair
Generally people with normal/oily skin do not have issues with irritation or flushing/blushing. However, if you have used a product that damaged your lipid barrier, use the Protective Moisturizer. It is loaded with peptides (amino acid building blocks) that help to repair your skin.
This formulation was originally designed for our users on oral acne medication. After a month of consistent use, you will find that your skin tone has improved and your skin is a lot less prone to irritation or flushing/blushing
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. People with oily skin tend to have a strong lipid barrier but it can be weakened if you use strong cleansers or acids that damage the barrier. It can also be stripped if you wash your face with very hot water.
Once the lipid barrier has been compromised, this area of skin can become dry, flaky, itchy, sensitive or can easily turn red. Accelerate the healing/repair by using Clearly Basics Protective Moisturizer in order to get your skin back to top condition.

@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.
@skinwithak @clearlybasics helped maintain my skin after oral prescription and honestly their products have helped so many, I get many DM’s thanking me for recommending Clearly Basics and how it’s helped them.
If I knew about @clearlybasics prior to my course of oral prescription I would’ve definitely gone with using Clear Out for sure!
@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!
@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!
@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🔮🧚🏽♀️
@itsangels_makeup I’ve started using The Power Duo + Protective moisturizer nearly 6 months ago after many positives reviews that I’ve read.
The first thing that I’ve experience has been the “purge” coming with clear out and it can last a loooong time. So this review is for people like me who experienced the purge for more that a month or two: keep going.
Because when I was about to quit I’ve seen a huuuuge difference with my skin. My skin is so much smoother than it was before Clearly Basics. So keep going, use Clearly Basics and stay positive!
