@pimpledgirl The 1st week was amazed! Fascinating skin texture, there were no stinging. The 2nd week were pretty same. The 3rd week – purging starred – bumpy skin, redness. The 4th week – same but I added #ProtectiveMoisturiser either from @clearlybasics and in three days redness was reduced. The 5-6th weeks – skin smoother, less red, breaking out badly. The 7-8th week – is it my skin? not red (even after washing as it used to be).

I’d say the amount of pustules has been reduced in 85%. I still have some tiny-tiny pimples and will keep going with mu treatment. • Honestly I’m very grateful to Clearly Basics • I’ll keep you updated.

@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

@_myskinstory 😭 I feel like I’m an addict and someone has taken away my drugs 😂

Saturday night I came to the end of my @clearlybasics Clear Out bottle. After consistently applying it every night for 3 months along side Niacinamide & Zinc so last night I had nothing to apply. (Right picture: a few days previous. Left picture: This morning) As soon as I woke up I knew it different feel great! 😭

Regardless off the other amazing benefits that a 2% Retinol & AZA has; I JUST WANT MY GLOW BACK!! I’ll dedicate my next post to the ingredients and how they ‘clearly’ work!!

FAQ

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.

    Was very skeptical that this would do anything since I have had deep dark marks for several years. To my surprise this actually started to reduce the dark marks significantly, they are almost gone after only about 2 months of use. Will continue to use them to clear them up. Skin is finally clear enough to be confident enough to not wear foundation everyday to cover all the scarring. Very impressed and have been recommending to friends!

    Basically I have been using the whole series for one year now and my skin has been so much clearer and better. I have a glow too and though i do get pimples, one or two, on and off, this whole series has made it so much easier to manage and made me happier.
