Your new favourite and *clean* acne routine

Do you struggle with acne or breakouts? Do you struggle to find a solution that works, isn’t over drying, and doesn’t contain ingredients that are potentially toxic? Look not further than the following routine by Beautycounter! Also, be sure to take the Beautycounter skincare quiz to find out the regimen that is best for you! I have personally been loving this routine for my own skin! The clear pore cleanser is dreamy, smells like  a spa and is so far from the typical acne cleanser but gets the results you want without all the harmful ingredients!

Countercontrol is a powerful regimen for oily and blemishprone
skin without the irritation that can result from
conventional treatments. Approximately 70% of people
between 15-29 experience oily skin or moderate acne. While
teens and young adults often have oily skin and acne, it
can affect people of all ages and ethnicity: ~50% of the
population ages 20-40 have oily skin or acne. Additionally,
as women age, adult-onset acne can occur often due to a
combination of factors including menopause, medication,
hormone imbalance, genetics, and stress.

Unlike conventional acne and oil control products which
can strip skin of both bad and good bacteria, leaving it red
dry and irritated, Countercontrol treats the main causes of
acne while maintaining skin’s healthy microf lora to keep
skin in balance. Additionally, Countercontrol is formulated
without potentially harmful ingredients such as harsh
surfactants, benzoyl peroxide, and sulfur commonly found in
conventional acne products.
Instead of these ingredients, we’ve formulated
Countercontrol with a proprietary blend called SkinBalance
Complex, a combination of two extracts:
• Natural salicylic acid from wintergreen helps exfoliate
dead skin cells and restore the imbalance of bacteria to a
healthy level
• Rosebay willow helps reduce irritation and decrease
sebum production

Our Overnight Resurfacing Peel is formulated without synthetic fragrances, PEGs, and formaldehyde-based preservatives commonly found in peels.

Our peel uses a unique combination of both resurfacing acids and soothing acids that hydrate, replenish, and protect skin. This precise combination of acids optimizes performance while maintaining a pH level that doesn’t cause irritation.
