5 Reasons to Moisturize Every Day This Summer – Even When You Have Oily, Acne-prone Skin

Die Tage werden wärmer, was bedeutet, dass der Sommer immer näher rückt! Während wir uns auf Sonnenschein, Roadtrips und ein bisschen zu viel Eiscreme freuen, fragen Sie sich vielleicht, ob es an der Zeit ist, die Feuchtigkeitscreme, die Sie in den letzten Monaten in Ihre Hautpflegeroutine eingebaut haben, wegzulassen.

Wie die Spice Girls es sangen: Sofort aufhören, vielen Dank.

Für die meisten von uns sind Feuchtigkeitscremes das ganze Jahr über ein Muss - ja, sogar im Sommer und selbst dann, wenn die Haut scheinbar (mehr als) genug Fett hat.

Wie funktionieren Feuchtigkeitscremes?

Feuchtigkeitscremes versorgen die Haut mit Nährstoffen, indem sie den Feuchtigkeitsgehalt erhöhen und die natürliche Schutzbarriere der Haut wiederherstellen. Es gibt drei Haupttypen von Inhaltsstoffen in Feuchtigkeitscremes, die sie zu den magischen, hautliebenden Zaubertränken machen, die sie sind:

Feuchthaltemittel ziehen Wasser in die Hautzellen ein und halten es dort fest.
Beispiele sind Hyaluronsäure, Glycerin und Alphahydroxysäuren.

Okklusivstoffe
bilden eine Barriere auf der Haut, die die Feuchtigkeit einschließt und den Wasserverlust verhindert.
Beispiele hierfür sind Dimethicone, Lanolin und Squalen.

Emollients
füllen die Zwischenräume zwischen rauen oder sich schälenden Hautzellen auf, damit sich die Haut glatter anfühlt.
Beispiele hierfür sind Ceramide und Ölsäure.

Warum sollte ich befeuchten? 

Die wichtigste Aufgabe Ihrer Haut ist es, Ihr Gesicht und Ihren Körper vor äußeren Stressfaktoren und übermäßigem Wasserverlust zu schützen1. Bei regelmäßiger Anwendung sind Feuchtigkeitscremes wie ein fleißiger Assistent, der Ihrer Haut die Unterstützung gibt, die sie braucht, um ihre Aufgaben optimal zu erfüllen. Feuchtigkeitspflege ist wichtig, um die Haut zu schützen, sie geschmeidig und weich zu machen, den Feuchtigkeitsgehalt zu erhöhen und wichtige Wirkstoffe in die Haut zu bringen1,2.


Lassen Sie uns einen tiefen Blick auf fünf Gründe werfen, warum Sie diesen Sommer Feuchtigkeit spenden sollten - auch wenn Sie fettige, zu Akne neigende Haut haben:

#Nr. 1 Feuchtigkeitscremes geben Ihrer Haut eine Schutzschicht.  

Der Sommer bedeutet, dass Sie mehr Zeit im Freien verbringen. Während der Lichtschutzfaktor in dieser Jahreszeit die erste Wahl sein sollte, um Ihre Haut vor den schädlichen UV-Strahlen zu schützen, ist Ihre Feuchtigkeitscreme die zweite Wahl, um die Barriere Ihrer Haut zu stärken und sie vor schädlichen Reizstoffen zu schützen, die in der Umwelt lauern, wie z. B. die Luftverschmutzung in der Stadt.


#2 Feuchtigkeitscremes halten die Haut hydratisiert, gesund und jung. 

Sehen Sie voraus, dass die Klimaanlage in diesem Sommer auf Hochtouren laufen wird? Die niedrigere Luftfeuchtigkeit kann dazu führen, dass die Haut an Feuchtigkeit verliert und dehydriert. Damit sich unsere Haut glatt und geschmeidig anfühlt, muss die äußere Hautschicht im Idealfall 20 bis 30 % Wasser enthalten3. 

Während trockene Haut ein Hauttyp ist, bei dem nicht genügend Öl produziert wird, ist dehydrierte Haut ein vorübergehender Zustand, bei dem ein Mangel an Wasser besteht. Wenn Sie fettige Haut haben, aber feststellen, dass sich Ihre Haut angespannt anfühlt und einen fahlen Teint hat, könnten Sie eine dehydrierte, fettige Haut haben.

Wenn durstige Haut nicht rechtzeitig mit Feuchtigkeit versorgt wird, besteht ein größeres Risiko für Entzündungen, Infektionen, Falten und vorzeitige Hautalterung4. Aus diesem Grund gilt Feuchtigkeitspflege als erste Anti-Aging-Hautpflege1.

#3 Mit Feuchtigkeit versorgte Haut könnte weniger Ausbrüche bedeuten. 

Wenn Sie fettige Haut haben, denken Sie vielleicht, dass eine Feuchtigkeitscreme Ihrer Haut nur noch mehr unnötiges Fett hinzufügt und sie glänzender aussehen lässt, als Sie es in diesem Sommer möchten. Die gute Nachricht ist, dass es ölfreie Feuchtigkeitscremes gibt, die die Haut mit Feuchtigkeit versorgen, ohne dass sie sich fettig und klebrig anfühlt.  

In fact, if you have acne-prone skin, you might find moisturizing twice a day can lead to fewer breakouts. This is because not moisturizing means your skin has to produce more oil to make up for the lack of moisture. This extra oil leads to clogged pores which can then lead to acne 5. Studies have even found that most acne patients see less acne between 4 and 8 weeks after beginning to use an acne-friendly moisturizer  (note the moisturizer is part of a dermatologist-prescribed acne treatment plan that included acne medication, a cleanser, and a moisturizer). 

#4 Moisturizers make powerful acne products more tolerable. 

While the retinol in our pore-purging, acne-targeting Clear Out is formulated to be effective yet gentle, if you are using other acne products or treatments that are strong, you might find that they are drying or irritating your skin5. Using a moisturizer every day and night can help your skin tolerate these ingredients better and minimize your experience of the side effects.  

#5 Moisturizers carry the good stuff to skin.  

Moisturizers are often formulated with key active ingredients that are then carried to the skin. These ingredients may be vitamins, antioxidants, peptides, or anti‐inflammatories2  that can address your specific skin concerns and help you reach your skin goals. 


Choosing the Right Moisturizer for You 

If you have oily skin, the last thing you want is to make your skin feel even more oily by using a heavy, creamy moisturizer. This is where oil-free, non-comedogenic moisturizers come in!  

The Matte Hydrator is a light, hydrating serum that gives your skin all the moisture it needs without giving you an oily sheen. The formulation uses 100% medical-grade Ultra Low Molecular Weight hyaluronic acid that can hold 1000x its weight in moisture, leaving your skin amply hydrated.


If you have dry skin, you are most probably in need of a moisturizer formulated with occlusives to lock in hydration.

The Protective Moisturizer keeps skin nourished and is at the same time loaded with peptides and resveratrol, a potent antioxidant. While the peptides work to repair skin and strengthen the skin barrier, resveratrol works to relieve redness and protect your skin from harmful agents in the environment.


If you have normal or combination skin, it is likely that both the Matte Hydrator and Protective Moisturizer are suitable for you. Ultimately, it is about what your skin needs and what feels best for you. You could even combine them both for an extra boost of hydration!

Whichever moisturizer you choose, the best time to apply it is after cleansing your face in the day and night, when the skin is still a little damp.

Remember: it’s all about getting the moisture in, and keeping it in.

Clear Out^

Comments: Does not appear to cause any problems if suffering from rosacea. Too early to say if it improves this condtion.
After 4 decades of acne have I found a soloution?

I am a week into using Clear Out and so far everything I expected to happen has taken place. With 4 decades of mild but persistent acne I'm certainly committed to giving this a few months to (hopefully) work it's magic. So far I can almost see my pores clearing. This does mean, as I expected more spots appearing but if this means they are finally leaving than lurking under my skin to keep making an appearance every few weeks or months I'm happy with that. I also have some rosacea across my cheeks so was worried that it might become worse, however, the spots that more recently have been appearing alongside the redness appear to be reacting in the same way as other acne type spots. I experienced a little dryness around my eye sockets as I had applied too much product in this area but within a few days this disappeared. It's early days but I'm feeling hopeful and positive and an acne free middle age is certainly very welcome! I am now considering purchasing additional products for cleaning and brown patch treatment. Will update my journey in a couple of months.

All I can say is wow

Got all the acne products on a whim and they did not disappoint! I have noticed such a difference in the texture of my skin. I have tried so many acne products and felt like nothing was working. The clearly basics range has lasted me soooooo long and I saw results in just 3 weeks! Really happy with my experience, I would highly recommend those with acne to try this brand. Love it!

Adult acne is a new thing for me- I’ve had clear skin growing up so the outbreaks were very stressful! I did everything and anything I could, from watching YouTube reviews, trying out cult products to professional advice, but nothing quite did the job. So how the power duo panned out for me was definitely a pleasant (-ly hugeeee) surprise. I do acknowledge that my acne challenges are not on the extremely severe end, but I must say, emotionally the positive outcome of using both the power duo encouraged me to wear my skin as it is again. It’s really worthwhile trying as it is also a no fuss duo; hence the currently gild of my staple skincare products.

The entire Clearly Basics product line is the only one that has cleared my skin. I tried any product you can think of including doctor prescribed medication and ointment and nothing worked. After having acne for over 15 years I am so happy to have clear, radiant skin!

I am a Nurse and my hormonal acne has really escalated since having to wear the N92 masks daily. Since using the Clearly power duo, I have noticed the outbreaks on my cheeks (where the masks are really tight) are less frequent, and when they do happen,are much less
severe.

I have maybe seen some improvement but nothing amazing yet. Have used the product as instructed, religiously. Will try another bottle and stick to it for a few more months.

I love all of clearly basics! They made my confidence rise because I finally feel comfortable without makeup.
This cleanser is amazing 👏
My skin doesn't feel tight afterwards and now I don't get that mid day shine near as bad.

I love everything from clearly basics! It totally changed my life by clearing my acne. Now they have a new sunscreen and it's great.
It doesn't have a smell or leave your face white or greasy. Best of all it doesn't cause breakouts!

The products are just amazing!! My results in 4 months of using clear out extra strength!!

Been using clearly basics for 3 months now and this is the best results I have seen with any skin care line I have tried for acne. I have converted all my products to clearlybasics and feel a sense of hope after discovering them!

Worked really well in quite a short amount of time! I now see long lasting results, my skin is healthy and my acne is finally under control! The first product I have tried which works and is actually affordable!

I struggled with lots of painful cystic acne so tried the clear out product. Found by the end of the first bottle a lot of the smaller spots were not coming back and the more painful larger ones were coming back less inflamed. I was happy with the results from the first bottle so I ordered another, this is halfway through the second bottle and can see most of the acne on my cheeks has gone! I still get cystic acne in the T area but it is much less painful than before. Definitely recommend, but takes time to see real results.

Clearly Basics has been an absolute life saver! Not an over night miracle, be patient and stick with it, amazing products

I saw a huge reduction in new pimples and any new pimples scars healed and disappeared a lot quicker

I have struggled with acne since I was 12 years old. All through my teenage and adult life my skin has been unpredictable and the breakouts have been constant and so frustrating. I’ve tried everything you could imagine but nothing worked reliably. Clear Out and lighten up have been a total game changer for me and I couldn’t be happier with the results

I started using clearly basics at the beginning of the year. I have struggled with acne most of my adult life and when I saw a video from a customer on instagram, everything she described is exactly what I had done…had hormonal acne on chin and jaw line in particular. I had been to the doctor, was referred to a dermatologist and had been on medication, tried all sorts of creams and gels with no success.

I cannot believe this actually worked. I would say I saw results within the first month and probably took around 4 months so really clear up. I have continued with using it and now only get the odd spot at that time of the month but use the calm down on it. It has given me my confidence back and now I’m working on reducing the scaring. I use clear out each evening, the TLC in the morning, lighten up twice a day (but that is a small bottle so doesn’t last long) and then have tried both the so fresh and balancing cleansers. For me it really worked so would highly recommend.

Tightens pores and brightens and smoothes skin. This was my first bottle but I will continue to purchase. I use day and night.

I already use CB balancing cleanser and clear out extra strength, two years ago my skin was spotty, blackheads, raw and very visible. I wondered if the TLC would make a difference in my routine but it has, a glow and radiance I didn’t expect. This is no filter I’ve just woke up. I turned 50 this year the clearly basics range is also an amazing anti ageing tool!

Tried every product out there from proactiv to slurp! None worked, they infact aggravated the condition! Tried clearlybasics as last resort and oh boy it works! Worth every penny! First time in 20 years, stepped out without wearing base makeup! Never thought this day would come!

I suffered with acne for years, and when I finally learned to stop the acne I was left with red and brown scars and hyperpigmentation. But I started using the clearly basics Lighten up cream and Dark mark defends, followed by the moisturiser, and I saw a dramatic difference within days! My scars have lightened so much and most of them are gone. I find this moisturiser is also very hydrating but not greasy, it is absorbed into my skin effortlessly, and it wears beautifully under my makeup. I've now been using the products for 6 months and will continue to use it!

This stuff changed my life!!!!
After reading the reviews I never thought it would work for me in the same way as it had for other people, as my skin was so bad and cystic. But after just a few months of using this and cutting down on dairy, my skin was 10 times better!
I’m still religiously using the Power Duo and don’t think I’ll ever stop 😊

It's such a relief to finally have found something that works. I've had acne since I was around 11 and like most people, I tried so many different products and 'hacks' to try and get rid of the spots but nothing really helped.
I was hesitant to try clear out because of the price but I was reassured by the money back guarantee.
To be honest, the purging process they warn about was pretty severe for me. Mine lasted for the entire first bottle and I was so ready to give up. I contacted customer service and they offered me a refund or 50% off my next bottle, reassuring me it would be worth sticking with it. I agreed to persevere and I'm so glad I did! About half way through the next bottle I really noticed improvements and by the end, my skin was the clearest it had ever been. I've completely stopped having breakouts and only occasionally get a spot or two during my cycle. Overall my skin is smoother and I have much less redness and a more even skin tone. I keep using clear out nightly to maintain my nice new skin and I'll happily keep buying it knowing how well it works for me!
