@by.emmataylor CLEAR OUT💙💙💙 gets rid of blackheads and whiteheads which is an added bonus.
It really improved my skin texture and most of all it removed spots. It’s worth the try really, because you can even get your money back if you don’t like the products, what are you waiting for? -Emma xxx

@hayleyfoster I’ve been using clearly range for almost 6 months now and it really has changed my life! I’ve suffered acne my whole life and although it may not be as bad as others its bad to me and has affected my life everyday. Initially my skin got better with the power duo then I seemed to go through a blip. I contacted Clearly and after sending some pics they gave me some advice and created me a more concentrated formula which worked amazingly and I can now dermaroll to help get rid of the scaring and finally feel I can leave the house without makeup!

I was skeptical to start with as I’d tried everything, been on prescription oral medication at a young age and it just came back within a year. I’ve tried all creams from GP and over counter stuff but none have worked until now with the help of clearly. If you are wonder whether to try it just give it a go! You have nothing to lose! I’m so glad I found Clearly Basics!

@startingtolovemyself ✨Not a pimple in sight!!!✨

It’s been about 3 weeks since I started using @clearlybasics Clear Out, Lighten Up and the Protective Moisturizer (the Complete Trio) and my skin has improved so much and I definitely think it’s from the Clear Out formula most of all!

It really is a miracle in a bottle! I’m excited to see how my skin changes even more in the next few weeks and months using them!

How do I apply Dark Mark Defense (DMD)?

This is a gentle formula that is designed to be used 2x per day, in the morning and evening. Apply as a spot treatment immediately on a freshly washed face in the same skincare step as Lighten Up. DMD is applied on brown marks whereas Lighten Up is applied on red marks so there should be little overlap. Apply Clear Out or other lotions and cosmetics after applying DMD. If you’re using a toner, DMD is applied immediately after applying your toner.

Can I use DMD together with my moisturizer or other products?

Yes, DMD can pair alongside other skincare products. It should be applied after washing your face and applying toner, but before you apply any other lotions or creams. It is a formulation that should be left on your skin all day or night.

Can I use DMD as a spot treatment on an active lesion?

DMD is not designed to work on an active lesion. Only apply on marks after the redness has subsided and the pimple has flattened.

For active lesions, please use our spot treatment gel – Stop Spot (if you are in the US) or Calm Down (if you are outside the US). While the names are different, the formulation for the two is exactly the same.

How long does it take to see noticeable results?

Post-acne brown marks can take up to two years to fade away but DMD can accelerate this process to six months. Brown scars take a much longer time to fade compared to red scars because melanin is embedded in a deeper layer of the skin. Using Clear Out will help accelerate the effects of DMD.

Can I use DMD on my back and body?

Yes, you can use DMD on your back and body. It should only be used for brown post-acne marks. For red post-acne marks, please use Lighten Up.

Is DMD safe to use while pregnant or nursing?

Yes, DMD is safe to use while pregnant or nursing.
