Previously part of the ‘secret menu’ of skincare items that Dr. Jen makes for people, our Anti-Acne Clarifying Face Wash has joined the family! This is part of our ‘second line’ of anti-acne products, created a little bit stronger for those folks dealing with more severe acne. It is a powerful chemical exfoliant, utilizing the synergism between alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids for maximal smoothing. However, that is balanced with a mix of anti-inflammatories like aloe vera and allantoin to reduce redness and irritation. It is finished off with a mild surfactant to help gently cleanse your skin.
Dr. Jen recommends using this cleanser only if your acne is severe. If you have occasional breakouts, or an oily T zone, she suggests using the Five Fruit Exfoliating Cleanser rather than this one for a milder exfoliation. Only wash your face with this cleanser once a day (use our Calming Cleanser or Skin Zen Cleanser if you want to wash your face twice a day). Make sure to use sun protection when using this product-the intense exfoliation will leave you with new, fresh, baby skin on your face, and you need to protect it. As with any anti-acne product, if you experience redness and/or dryness that doesn’t go away, stop using the product, and contact Dr. Jen immediately.
