Woman Who Battled Severe Acne & Hyperpigmentation for Years Shares the Best Ingredients to Get Clear Skin

I grew up with severe acne for most of my teenage and adult life. Five different dermatologists had tried to treat my acne but they all fell short.

“With my skin worsening each year, I tried every over the counter product that I could get my hands on. These products did little to help my skin.”

Five years into my hole trying to find a solution, I had an eureka moment realizing that I was only accumulating products with no real knowledge of my skin or the ingredients that I was attempting to treat it with.

One by one I picked up the products I had purchased and researched every ingredient listed.

I was disgusted by the fillers, fragrance and other irritants hidden inside fancy containers that dominated the shelves of every cosmetic and drugstore.

I had committed to using “clean” products for a year, eliminating any chemical that could cause harm to my already damaged skin. While my skin responded positively, progress was very slow.

Natural ingredients are great but can take twice as long as products with active ingredients such as retinol and salicylic-acid.

Through this season, I learned not to be afraid of chemicals but rather to focus on the quality and proof behind every ingredient being placed in my skincare.

FREE TOOLKIT TO CLEAR ACNE

Answer 3 easy questions to get Clearly Basics' Toolkit to clear acne!

When I came across Clearly Basics, I was intrigued as skincare companies rarely use USP certified ingredients¹. These standards are normally used for prescription drugs or if USP ingredients are used, they are only sold in dermatologist’s offices and clinics.

I was also worried that highly concentrated ingredients would make my skin sensitive as I’ve already used many of the ingredients in the past and they burned my skin.

These are the 3 main ingredients that has helped me to clear my acne and fade away the hyperpigmentation that has plagued me over the years:

1. Retinol

A derivative of Vitamin A², retinol was originally designed as an effective treatment against acne. However, skincare companies have raised the prices this ingredient so that it largely exists in high end anti-aging products.

Retinol accelerates the shedding of dead skin cells and fills out scars by stimulating the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid.

2. AZA

This ingredient³ is also not common in acne products but it is great because it reduces inflammation and targets the P. Acnes bacteria on your skin, helping to simultaneously reducing the appearance of existing red marks while also preventing future marks from surfacing.

A great deal of research⁴ has shown that AZA can significantly diminish the appearance of skin blemishes, help fade post-acne marks and other discolorations, refine skin’s surface, and reveal a more even skin tone. It can even reduce skin sensitivity and is compatible with any skin type.

3. Pracaxi Oil

Also rare to find in acne products, this tea tree oil⁵ is excellent at scar-repair and the reduction of redness. It works together with the two ingredients above to flatten existing marks and make your skin much less acne prone.

Since I have very sensitive skin, I first used the Protective Moisturizer for two weeks to help strengthen my skin and reduce sensitivity.

I then started to introduce the Clear Out slowly by applying only twice a week and then gradually stepping up to every evening application. Once I was able to use the Clear Out every evening, I saw a significant improvement texture and the hyperpigmentation went away.

How is Clearly Basics DIFFERENT from the other products (with the same ingredients) that I’ve used in the past?

I’ve come to realize that ingredients and formulation are equally important.

“A good base formulation is necessary to deliver the active ingredients to the correct layer of skin. And putting the right active ingredients in the right mix will enable the ingredients to drive better results with less side effects.”

In short, Clearly Basics’ products mix multiple active ingredients so they work in synergy.  When combined in the right mix/concentrations, you can see significantly better results WITHOUT requiring visits to the dermatologist for prescription medication.

I’ve been able to take medical-grade ingredients even though I have very sensitive skin and the results speak for themselves!

See what others have to say about Clearly Basics.

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 xx

@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 !!!

@gemskin__ A little progress goes a long way! 🙌🏻 In the first picture I think my skin was purging from the first week of using @clearlybasics ‘Clear Out’. I believe I actually cried either before or after I took this photo, my skin was super painful and I felt so ugly and self conscious!

The second picture is 5 weeks after using Clear Out, just scarring (being helped by using Lighten Up) and no actives!
I’m so happy with the results so far using these products and they have been the only thing that has helped my skin!

@amynuramira I have been struggling with acne for 10 years. This is by far the best product. I started out with brown pigmentation (acne marks) and a lot of tiny bumps of acne on my forehead, cheek and nose (kind of like sand paper). As soon as I started the Clear Out and Lighten Up, my acne bumps got smaller and smaller. My brown pigmentation began turning lighter (reddish pinkish).
⠀⠀
Initially, when I started using it, I didn’t really get a ‘purge’ it was just a small amount of break outs which went away in a few weeks. Now my hormonal break outs are not as terrible as before, they still appear but barely noticeable. My skin is acne-free, pigmentation are still there but they’ve improved tremendously!

@amysacnehealing Yes I know the lighting is different but look at the difference in the texture 😍. Yes I still have acne, that hasn’t gone away however…the fact that my texture has improved has increased my confidence so much. I really do believe this is all down to @clearlybasics I’ve been using their power duo for about 3 weeks and I’ve noticed such a difference in the size of my acne spots…my face doesn’t hurt as much nor is as itchy as it was.

I would definitely recommend giving them a whirl it’s the only products that I can honestly say has made any difference to my skin. The difference it has made in 3 weeks is fab!

@clearupchels Guys after using clear out from @clearlybasics for over a month everyday I do truly believe it’s made a MASSIVE difference. My face is smoother, tone is more even and I do think the stubborn spots are going quicker.

I payed for this myself and have not been asked to do this post, I just think If it’ll help someone else why would I not shout about it!
