Previously part of the ‘secret menu’ of skincare items that Dr. Jen makes for people, our Anti-Acne 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. The new version has been changed to be more effective against cystic/hormonal acne. It contains 2% salicylic acid, a chemical exfoliant that is oil-soluble, and thus, can get into pores and solubilize its contents. It also has allantoin and sulphur mud to help reduce inflammation. Finally, it contains cocobetaine, a surfactant to help gently cleanse your skin. Available scented with a yuzu scent, or fragrance free.
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). 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.
