Clash of the Actives: Var försiktig när du blandar dessa produkter med retinol

Kred: Disney/Marvel

Föreställ dig att göra en smoothie och slänga in alla möjliga ingredienser i mixern, från äpplen till glass och lax. Även om dessa livsmedel smakar gott på egen hand, när de blandas ihop, blir det en stor kopp bleh.

På samma sätt, även om aktiva hudvårdsprodukter kan vara bra för dig på egen hand, riskerar du att produkterna krockar när du lägger på för många. Ibland orsakar det irritation, och i andra fall kan de aktiva ta ut varandra. Nu skulle det vara ett slöseri, eller hur?

Om du använder en produkt med aknebekämpande retinol, som vår allsmäktiga Clear Out, här är några vanliga hudvårdsingredienser att vara mer uppmärksam på:

Bensoylperoxid

Som en av de mest populära produkterna där ute för att rensa akne, är bensoylperoxid effektivt för att döda den finne-orsakande P. acnes-bakterien och ta bort döda hudceller. Det är ganska starka grejer, men i kombination med retinol kan de aktiva ämnena sluta inaktivera varandra, vilket gör dem mindre effektiva.

Vad du ska göra: Välj en. Det finns inget behov av att ha båda titanerna i din rutin. Men om du vill, prova att använda bensoylperoxid på morgonen och retinol på natten.


AHA

AHA, som glykolsyra och mjölksyra, fungerar genom att exfoliera det yttersta lagret av din hud. Även om retinol och AHA kan fungera bra tillsammans i en hudvårdsrutin, finns det också en chans för dem att irritera huden och lämna den röd, sveda, brännande och flagnande. Detta är särskilt ett problem om du har känslig hud.

Vad du ska göra: Experimentera med hur din hud reagerar på dessa aktiva ämnen genom att börja med en av dem först. Om det inte finns någon irritation kan du börja introducera den andra aktiva i din rutin. Ändå är det bäst att placera ut dessa ingredienser. Överväg att applicera AHA på morgonen (följt av ditt solskydd) och retinol på natten.


BHAs

I likhet med AHA är BHA såsom salicylsyra utmärkta exfolieringsmedel. BHA går djupt in i porerna för att bryta ner döda hudceller och olja, vilket gör dem till fantastiska tillägg till en rutin för aknebenägen hud. Men de kan också torka. Beroende på koncentrationen, när det används tillsammans med retinol, finns det risk för irritation.

Vad man ska göra: Använd BHA på morgonen och retinol på natten.

Obs: Medan Balancing Cleanser, vår rekommenderade rengöring för dem med fet hud, är formulerad med glykolsyra och salicylsyra för att bryta ner talg, det är helt säkert att använda med Rensa ut varje kväll. Detta beror på att vi har lagt till växter för att hålla rengöringen effektiv men ändå skonsam mot huden. Faktum är att det är en av de mest skonsamma AHA + BHA-tvättarna som finns.


C-vitamin

C-vitamin är en berömd antioxidant som skyddar oss från skurkar som attackerar vår hud, såsom UV-strålar och föroreningar. Men när de blandas med retinol kan vissa uppleva irritation och känslighet.

Vad man ska göra: Återigen, detta betyder inte att du behöver ta bort C-vitamin från din rutin helt. Applicera helt enkelt din C-vitaminprodukt på dagen och använd retinol på natten.


Mer Retinol

Retinol, och särskilt retinol av medicinsk kvalitet i Clear Out, är redan en kraftfull aktiv substans. Så det finns ingen anledning att använda den två gånger i din rutin. Genom att göra det kan du till och med riskera irritation.

Vad du ska göra: Välj en retinoldriven produkt och du bör vara redo!

I slutet av dagen är det bäst att lyssna på din hud.Din hudvårdsrutin bör vara personlig för dig, så om du upptäcker att lager på dessa potentiellt krockande aktiva ämnen fungerar för dig, fortsätt!

Comments: Any ideas on how to get rid of brown skin damage
Skin defence

Marks of sun damage are still there they haven't faded much after using twice a day for 60 days. . I will continue until product is finished. I'm a bit disappointed

Skin Type: Combination

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
Amazing

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 !

❤️❤️❤️❤️

This is the stuff.

So, long time sufferer of acne. Started when I was 12 and I'm 28 now still battling it. I've tried all kinds of different things to try and get it under control and besides birth control, nothing has helped long term. I never want to take birth control ever again and I just happened upon this brand and decided well, why not try? To my amazement, it has helped more than anything else I've tried, I'd say it has improved my skin to the level it was at when I took BC. Of course I still get pimples every now and then, and tiny flare ups during PMS but my skin is nowhere near as bad as it used to be. I highly recommend this company. To those who are considering trying this out, be aware that during the first week or so your skin will go through a purge and your acne will appear to get worse at first. Stick with it! Once that phase is over is when your skin will begin improving. I do need to use it every night for it to be fully effective, but even when I do forget, the pimples don't get too out of control. I just can't say enough good things about this product. It has helped my confidence improve immensely and I definitely recommend trying it to those who have skin as finicky as mine.

Here one day, gone the next!

After success with Clearly Basics for my acne scars, I stocked up with all of the active acne products to prepare myself for how angry my acne would get when going off hormonal birth control. I have tried and failed twice as my acne comes back so bad that I just start taking it again. This time I have been using clearly basics without fail every day (lighten up and clear out). I have had 3 pimples start to form and I use ‘Stop Spot’ and the next day instead of a much redder, much angrier pimple with a big white head - the pimple is gone! I have been very happy with this product. I’m one month down (typically when acne gets the worst) - let’s do this!

I love that these products are gentle on my daughter skin.

This skin care routine is the o lay one that has helped clear up my daughters skin.

My daughters skin is really starting to look better!

So far so good

Bought this for my daughter that has struggled with acne for years. She has seen improvement and less frequent breakouts.

Best moisturizer I have found!

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

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.

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.

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.
