We uncover the reasons why acne is so hard to get rid of and the top acne-fighting ingredients according to dermatologists.
Mim Padgham, 23, a primary school teacher had suffered from clogged pores for the past 6 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.
“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 inflammation*.
*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.
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.
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.
Meet Clear Out – An Effective Formulation That Delivers the Clear, Glowing Skin You’re Looking For
Clear Out is the ANSWER you have been looking for.
It delivers retinol + AZA deep into your skin to flush out dead skin cells and clogs, making it harder for blockages to form.
AZA + pracaxi oil will then work to reduce the appearance of post-acne red marks.
Leaving you with clear, glowing skin!
Because it uses multiple key ingredients, we're able to make it far more GENTLE and EFFECTIVE as compared to other alternatives in the market .
All of its key ingredients are pharma-grade, USP certified* and backed by hundreds of medical studies.
*USP certified ingredients contain a standard of purity and potency that cosmetic grade ingredients do not provide.
It took us years of intensive research to create this formulation that can’t be found anywhere else on the market!
It is so good that we are giving you 90-day Money Back Guarantee if you do not see a noticeable improvement after finishing off a bottle. T&Cs apply.
What Can I Do About the Red Scars Left Behind From Pimples?
When a swollen pimple finally goes away, it’s all too often replaced by a frustrating reminder, in the form of an unsightly red mark.
Frustrating is an understatement!
If these red marks are exposed to UV, they can quickly collect melanin and turn into brown marks that last up to two years.
To address them quickly and effectively, we created the Lighten Up which soothes and dissipates the residual blood left behind after a pimple has flattened.
I Have Dry, Sensitive Skin, What's Best for Me?
As retinol packs a punch and may cause some irritation, we created the Protective Moisturizer, perfect for those with dry, sensitive or combination skin.
It 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 and works even on the most sensitive skin!
I Have Oily Skin, What's Best for Me?
Acne and larger pores are often attributed to oily skin⁵.
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.

Real People with Real, Lasting Results
Mim (@acneisntugly), a teacher from Southampton, battled hormonal cystic acne for over 6 years before she tried 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 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 Clear Out to keep her skin less acne-prone.
"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....
