Lighten Up15mlfor red post-acne marks
Red pimple scars often linger longer than the pimple itself. Sometimes, it feels like these pesky red marks won’t ever leave. Use Lighten Up to fade the look of these red acne scars so your skin can return to its healthiest, happiest self.
Why LIGHTEN UP?
- Fades the appearance of red marks before they get a chance to turn into stubborn brown marks
- Calms skin and promotes healing using a combination of natural botanicals
- Expect less noticeable red marks after five weeks of use
While this spot treatment is designed to last three months, it varies widely depending on how many red marks are present.
- PETA-Certified Vegan
- PETA-Certified Cruelty-Free
- Fragrance-, Colorant-, Paraben-, Lanolin-Free
Lighten Up is a companion product to Clear Out. Get Clear Out first before getting Lighten Up.
There’s No One Like You
There are very few formulations out there designed to fade the appearance of post-acne red marks. There are even fewer formulations that are effective. Lighten Up uses a one-of-a-kind blend of natural, soothing ingredients you cannot find anywhere else.
Keep the Dark at Bay
If red acne marks are left for too long, they collect melanin from the sun and turn into even more stubborn brown marks. Lighten Up gives you a head start in preventing these dark spots from ever forming in the first place.

@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!
@deannaskin Over the past month and a half I’ve noticed a massive change to the appearance and texture of my skin since using @clearlybasics. Honestly the most effective products (vegan of course) I’ve used all year. Not only has the redness of my spots reduced, but I rarely get painful under-the-skin bumps or huge whiteheads anymore. My scars have also faded so quickly 👀
If your skin is similar to mine I’d 100% recommend that you implement these products into your skincare routine.
I’m only a few weeks in using these products but the results have been so positive🔮🧚🏽♀️
@itsangels_makeup I’ve started using The Power Duo + Protective moisturizer nearly 6 months ago after many positives reviews that I’ve read.
The first thing that I’ve experience has been the “purge” coming with clear out and it can last a loooong time. So this review is for people like me who experienced the purge for more that a month or two: keep going.
Because when I was about to quit I’ve seen a huuuuge difference with my skin. My skin is so much smoother than it was before Clearly Basics. So keep going, use Clearly Basics and stay positive!

How To Use
How do I apply Lighten Up?
Can I use Lighten Up together with my moisturizer or other products?
Can I use Lighten up as a spot treatment on an active lesion?
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.
