One of the things we love so much about Image is it's ability to target a wide variety of skin concerns - they really do it all so well and have some truly incredible skin-savers to help treat, soothe & prevent acne.
Here is my favourite step-by-step routine for someone treating acne:
Step 1: Cleanse with Clear Cell Salicylic Gel Cleanser: SHOP HERE
Start your acne-fighting routine by thoroughly cleansing your skin with Clear Cell Salicylic Gel Cleanser. This gentle yet effective cleanser contains salicylic acid, which helps to unclog pores, reduce excess oil production and prevent breakouts. Massage the cleanser onto damp skin in gentle, circular motions, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
Step 2: Treat with Clear Cell Medicated Acne Masque: SHOP HERE
For a deeper treatment, indulge in the Clear Cell Medicated Acne Masque. This clarifying mask helps to purify the skin, reduce inflammation, and heal active acne. Apply a thin, even layer to clean, dry skin and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
Step 3: Target with Clear Cell Restoring Serum: SHOP HERE
To specifically target stubborn acne and prevent future breakouts, incorporate the Clear Cell Restoring Serum. This oil-free, lightweight moisturising serum soothes and absorbs surface oils for a mattifying effect. Vitamin B6 derivative helps to restore skin's overall healthy balance by visually minimising pore size, shine and sebum production while botanicals reduce the appearance of irritation. Press this into the skin once to twice daily.
Step 4: Hydrate with Vital C Hydrating Repair Crème: SHOP HERE
Maintaining proper hydration is crucial even when treating acne-prone skin. The Vital C Hydrating Repair Crème provides essential moisture while soothing and calming the skin. It contains antioxidants, vitamins, and nourishing ingredients to promote healthy skin and support the healing process. Gently massage the crème onto clean, dry skin in upward motions.
Step 5: Protect with Prevention+ Daily Matte Moisturiser SPF 32: SHOP HERE
Complete your acne-fighting routine by protecting your skin from harmful UV rays. The Prevention+ Daily Matte Moisturiser SPF 32 is an oil-free, broad-spectrum sunscreen that helps shield your skin from sun damage and prevents hyperpigmentation caused by UV exposure. Apply it liberally to your face and neck, ensuring comprehensive sun protection. It is THE BEST!
Step 6: Enhance with Dermalux LED Therapy: SHOP HERE
If you really want to fight the p.acnes bacteria that can cause breakouts, Dermalux LED therapy is a non-invasive treatment that utilises different clinically proven wavelengths of light to target various skin concerns, including acne. It works by stimulating cellular activity, reducing inflammation, and promoting the skin's natural healing process. Not only will it help to treat and reduce acne, it will help to heal and soothe the skin.
By incorporating Image Skincare's acne-fighting products and Dermalux LED therapy into your skincare routine, you can effectively combat acne and achieve a clearer, healthier complexion. The combination of targeted treatments, such as the Clear Cell range, and clinically proven Dermalux LED light therapy can help unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and promote the skin's natural healing process.
