Student Who Almost Lost All Hope Finally Discovers How to Get Rid of Her Post-Acne Scars

Emma Taylor, 15, a student from Manchester had struggled with severe acne for over 6 years.
“I used to look in the mirror and try to imagine what I would look like with clear skin ... I couldn’t.”
She tried an endless list of skincare products and diets to no avail. After three years of breakouts, Emma managed to get off the wait list for a dermatologist. Antibiotics only made things worse but six hard months of prescription oral medication helped to calm down her cysts. However, she was left with persistent red acne marks and could not find a product to fade away the red scars. She used a number of acids, peels and cleaners which only irritated her skin, leaving her cheeks flushed and sensitive.

The #acnecommunity had been talking about Clearly Basics and she was happy to find a formulation specifically designed for post-acne red marks. These red marks are residual blood left behind from the inflammation and the Lighten Up uses essential oils to flush out this residual blood. Within a month, the Lighten Up had significantly faded the appearance of her red scars. To knock down the general redness in her cheeks, Emma used the Protective Moisturizer which is loaded with peptides. These amino acids are the building blocks for your skin and paired with antioxidants, the Protective Moisturizer can significantly calm redness, sensitivity and improve the overall texture of your skin. Emma saw significant improvements when using the Moisturizer and Lighten Up. They were originally designed to counter the harsh effects of prescription oral medication. In order to keep her pores clear and to speed up the results of the Lighten Up and Moisturizer, Emma uses the Clear Out every evening. She still gets pimples occasionally but the Clear Out helps to flatten them quickly.

When i think back to almost 1 year ago i feel very lucky to have skin like i do now! My scars are still here, they remind me daily of the struggles that i went through but they push me to keep going and that’s why i’m posting about it right now. I would say that the product that helped these reduce in prominence was @clearlybasics LIGHTEN UP (not an AD) and you can use my coupon code EMMA if you do fancy any money off, but this is in no way sponsored i’m just voicing my opinions. The three near my temple are definitely most prominent, then i have lots of dipped ones that you can see when i stand directly under a light. These used to make me feel very conscious but now i’m finding it easier, remember it will get better i don’t know when but acne always get better don’t dwell on your acne but focus on being the confident, amazing person you are acne or no acne! My skin yesterday, after a full day! I have been getting small spots it I think this is stress because of exams coming up, so I’m not too bothered about them. - I started using Clearly Basics and now a lot of those spots have gone... no joke!! ❤️ - Emma xxx

I am so happy that I stumbled upon clearly basics on instagram. I was skeptical at first but decided to give it a try and bought clear out clarifying lotion. It's been 2 months and my skin has improved a lot. I can see significant reduction in pores and acne.

Skin Type: Combination

After years of medication and products, I decided to try clearly basics. In just 6 weeks my skin has calmed and I am now able to treat scarring.

So glad to have found these products!

Finding products that helped to control my acne without irritating my sensitive skin has always been a huge challenge. The clearly basics products have been my saviour, I can't recommend them enough ☺️

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Excellent and actually works

I am so incredibly impressed with the TLC for pore minimising - it 💯 works and has transformed my skin.

I’m in my 50’s and always had hormonal flare ups with larger pores as I age - this is a game changer and have just reordered my 3rd bottle !

Fresh Feeling

My skin feels so clean and still hydrated when I use this cleanser. It’s balancing and refreshing. My skin has responded really well to it and at times my skin can be sensitive. I highly recommend this product to anyone with relatively oily t-zone area

Skin Type: Combination
Very happy!

Love the texture, the minty scent and the lather.
I wish the bottles were a bit bigger HOWEVER they are just small enough to fly with.

Skin Type: Normal
Comments: The only thing I now need to use to keep my skin clear.
The holy grail for clearing hormonal acne.

This is the only product that I have needed to keep my skin clear since discovering it about 2 years ago, after suddenly developing cystic hormonal acne at the age of 25. I now only need to use it every second night, so it's incredibly affordable. It has also never irritated my sensitive skin and it has faded previous acne marks to truly clear my skin. After years of trying expensive supplements/products/harsh prescription creams, Clear Out was the only thing that gave me long-lasting results.

Skin Type: Oily
Clearly Basics is the only product that has helped my Adult Acne

I have always struggled with dehydrated acne prone skin. Every month like clockwork I would get a new breakout on my chin or cheek area. These included large cystic acne that by the time they came to a head would take me months to clear. With new breakouts each month this created more & more spots before the first could heal leaving more hyper pigmentation spots that never have time to clear. Clearly basics changed all that for me. It gave my skin a chance to heal and reduced the number of breakouts each month. When I do get a new breakout it resolves itself quickly with less scarring and redness. Now that the acne is under control the products are helping to eliminate the remaining hyper pigmentation spots left from years of acne. I have not been using the product for long but I will continuing relying on this product and look forward to the day I can happily look in the mirror at a smooth clear & even complexion some day soon.

Comments: Product consistency in terms of smoothness/coarseness/stickiness/ is sometimes a miss, don't believe it affects the result provided.
Great Combo

Have seen great improvements by using these 2 items concurrently, hard to fault and wil continue purchasing.
