If you are having issues with oil control on acne prone skin, here are five steps to take in order to reduce oil production:
Step 1: Break the Oil Production Cycle
Your skin operates on a biofeedback loop whereby oil is produced only when it is necessary. When you have clogged pores, oil is trapped and cannot reach its intended target so neighboring pores go into overdrive in order to make up for oil that is lacking. This leads to more clogs forming.
Break the oil production cycle by decongesting your pores. Clear Out is very effective in flushing out existing clogs. Furthermore, it uses medical grade retinol which directly decreases oil production:
Step 2: Getting Cleansing Right
Opt for a gentle cleanser and only wash your face twice per day: once in the morning and once in the evening. If you find that your skin still skews oily, spend more time working in the gentle cleanser and you will find the right balance.
It is a common mistake for people with oil skin to use a strong cleanser, or to overwash. This will force your skin into overdrive to make up for lost oil. This cleanser has been perfectly balanced for those with oily skin:
Step 3: Getting Moisturizing Right
Your skin operates on a biofeedback loop. Moisturize proactively so that your skin does not need to generate oil to do the same job. Here is an oil-free moisturizer which you will find very useful:
Step 4: Watch Your Diet
Avoid foods that are high on the glycemic index (GI). These foods have been proven to trigger your sebum glands to produce more oil. Common foods include: baked potatoes, pasta, white rice, white bread and ice cream:
Step 5: Consider a Toner
Toners have gotten a bad rap for containing drying alcohol. However, not all toners are the same. Consider a toner that contains salicylic acid as this BHA will break down oils.

@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!
@theclearskinroad My @clearlybasics update!! The photos on the left were October 2nd and the photos on the right were today (October 11th).
I’ve been using the Power Duo for Clearly Basics for about 2 months now, and now starting to see quick results! My favourite is the “Clear Out” 🤗 Loving the results and exciting to keep using Clearly products!
@amynuramira I have been struggling with acne for 10 years. This is by far the best product. I started out with brown pigmentation (acne marks) and a lot of tiny bumps of acne on my forehead, cheek and nose (kind of like sand paper). As soon as I started the Clear Out and Lighten Up, my acne bumps got smaller and smaller. My brown pigmentation began turning lighter (reddish pinkish).
Initially, when I started using it, I didn’t really get a ‘purge’ it was just a small amount of break outs which went away in a few weeks. Now my hormonal break outs are not as terrible as before, they still appear but barely noticeable. My skin is acne-free, pigmentation are still there but they’ve improved tremendously!
@beatlebarbs Hey guys! So I rarely write reviews, but I’m going make an exception, because it literally changed my life (what a cliche I know).
I’ve suffered from acne pretty much my whole life. I’m generally a happy and optimistic person, or at least I try to be, but acne made it impossible for me. It got to a point where I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror without crying. I didn’t wanna go out or even meet my friends. My self confidence was nonexistent. I had severe anxieties and break downs. I sought the help of a GP and dermatologist but nothing worked. Antibiotics made it even worse.
Then I read about the Clear Out and the reviews were great. Still a bit skeptical, I decided to give it a shot and thank God I did. My skin improved drastically and even though I still get a pimple or two every now and then, I am overall very happy with the results.
@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.
@gemskin__ A little progress goes a long way! 🙌🏻 In the first picture I think my skin was purging from the first week of using @clearlybasics ‘Clear Out’. I believe I actually cried either before or after I took this photo, my skin was super painful and I felt so ugly and self conscious!
The second picture is 5 weeks after using Clear Out, just scarring (being helped by using Lighten Up) and no actives!
I’m so happy with the results so far using these products and they have been the only thing that has helped my skin!
