For those who have had sensitivity or irritation when using skincare in the past, here are five tips on how to reduce these issues going forward.
Invest in a Good Moisturizer
Weak lipid barriers and an accumulation of dead skin cells are one of the biggest triggers of acne. This is especially important if you have used a product that damaged your lipid barrier.
The Protective Moisturizer. It is loaded with peptides (amino acid building blocks) that help to repair your skin. This formulation does not clog your pores and has helped many with very sensitive acne-prone skin.
If you are worried or feel uncomfortable trying out a new active ingredient, you should test the product in an inconspicuous area of your skin to see if any problems arise.
The skin on your neck and chest are most similar to the skin on your face. The skin in these areas are thin and they have a high density of sebaceous glands (to test if a product causes breakouts).
Other parts of your body has skin that is as thin as the skin on your face (like the wrist) but there are very few sebaceous glands so this is not a good area to test whether a product will cause breakouts.
Introduce Products Gradually
The strongest product in the Clearly Basics lineup will be the Clear Out. If you have very sensitive skin, apply Clear Out every third night. As your skin adjusts to the product, you can gradually “step up” by applying more frequently. Eventually, you will be able to use the Clear Out every evening without any issues.
To further dilute the strength of Clear Out, apply the Protective Moisturizer first before applying Clear Out.
Be conscious applying actives around your eyes, your nose and your mouth. It is very common for users to leave excess product on the base/crevice of the nose which will lead to irritation/itchiness.
Two best-in-class formulations to flush away dull skin, clogged pores and calm general redness. After a single set, you will see a noticeable improvement in skin tone and texture.
Get the Right Cleanser
Although it seems basic, many people get a cleanser that is too strong for their skin and it weakens their lipid barrier. This forces your skin into overdrive to produce more oil (thereby leading to more acne).
Opt for a gentle cleanser and if you have areas that are particularly oily, spend more time working the cleanser in those areas. This will allow for the cleanser to work out additional oil in these areas.
Keep it Simple!
As the Clear Out contains three active ingredients, you should keep your night time routine simple. However, if you want to introduce other actives, make sure to ease into it slowly, giving your skin time to adapt to the changes.
Make sure that your new product does not contain fragrance or colorants … these should be avoided in any leave-on product.
You know you’ve reached adulthood when the sweet smell of NOTHING in your skincare makes your heart glad.

@_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!!
@xx.tonilumsden This is me 5 weeks into my skincare journey with @clearlybasics.
5 weeks ago, 5 months ago, and even 5 years ago, I had lost all hope for my skin and appearance. Now I have regained that hope and positivity because I know that I am using amazing skincare products by @clearlybasics that actually do work without being harsh on my skin.
Just because you feel like nothing is working doesn’t mean you should give up on hope.
Michaela Holzhuter I’ve struggled with adult acne for years. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars trying to grab at the next promise for clear skin. Clearly Basics is the first brand that actually worked for me! It’s simple (it actually decreased the time I was spending caring for my skin), it’s scale-able (buy one product or by seven!), and it works. I couldn’t be happier with this product and the continuous progress it has provided!
@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!
@megandownes Amazing!! Never have I found a brand that is so gentle on my skin but works wonders. The lighten up is the best thing for redness, the difference in just one day on my pictures below. Can’t recommend enough, especially for hormonal acne. Thank you Clearly!
