We gave up chocolate and other sugary things (for a time), kept our smartphones at least an inch away from our cheeks, and knocked back eight glasses of water per day. Still, our annoying adult acne persisted. Which is why we’re breaking out the big guns with help from dr. brandt®. This lightweight, oil-free hydrator restores the moisture that our skin needs, clears away impurities and dead skin cells, absorbs oil for a matte effect, and squelches bacteria growth. Finally, a product that works as hard as we do to keep breakouts at bay.
How it Works
It’s a myth that blemished skin needs to be dried out to treat pimples—your skin needs a certain level of moisture to maintain a balanced pH level. This oil-free hydrator is a great way to soothe and moisturize sensitive, acne-prone skin without causing further irritation. It contains salicylic acid to prevent clogged pores, flaxseed extract to absorb excess oil, and amino acids to speed the healing of active blemishes.
How to Use
Morning and night, apply evenly over clean, dry skin for a clearer, healthier-looking complexion.
