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.

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!
@beas.bareskin Clearly Basics have been with me for about a week and I’m so happy I’ve been using their product!!!!!
My fave between these 3 is the “Lighten up” one because it has definitely helped with the redness! The redness on my cheeks are slowly dimming down and the texture of my skin is so soft and smooth.
You may not be able to tell cuz pictures don’t do it justice but if you were to have felt my skin before I used their products compared to now you can definitely feel the difference !!!
@mimandskin Thank you @clearlybasics for being on this journey with me for the past 5 months.
No more green concealer or green primer! My skin tone is so much better, I don’t use as much foundation as I once did, I don’t constantly worry I look like I have chicken pox and I feel much more confident within my skin!
The power duo really has been an absolute game changer for my skin and I’m so glad I’ve shared my results day in and day out so we could all see this progression.
@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.
@celesterobinson This company is honestly incredible! I have been struggling with really painful hormonal cystic acne for years. I was prescribed oral medication, but decided against taking it because of all the side effects. So I did some research and found Clearly Basics! I have been using the Power Duo for 3 months and the progress my skin has made has been amazing! It has cleared my skin without causing any irritation or sensitivity. I am finally at the stage where I can leave the house without makeup! My skin is clear!! The customer service is also very personal and efficient. I don’t have enough wonderful things to say about these products, they literally saved my skin.
@roxyrogan I have struggled with hormonal acne for over 1 year and had tried every face cream, scrub & peel you could find! When I started with Clearly Basics my skin started to clear within using the first bottle of ‘Clear Out’!
My skin is now on the road to recovery and I still use Clearly Basics ‘Clear Out, Protective Moisturizer and Lighten Up’ products every day! Highly recommend Clearly Basics to anyone who’s suffering from stubborn acne! 💛
