It’s a myth that only oily skin gets breakouts. It’s a fact that all skin types can suffer from breakouts.
Most skin care products made for breakouts contain ingredients that dry out the skin, so if you have normal to dry skin, watch out. If you have dry skin, you really need to be aware and look for products that hydrate the skin or add in additional hydrating products. Origins recently added to the successful Clear Improvement line that is really good at doing both — banishing breakouts and giving skin hydration.
The new Clear Improvement Pore Clearing Moisturizer with Bamboo Charcoal is an oil-free, non-acnegenic, lightweight moisturizer that gives skin all day hydration. It is good for all skin types, even dry skin, but it is especially great for acne prone skin.
This moisturizer not only prevents new breakouts, but it actively cleats existing blemishes and blackheads with its key ingredients.
As the jar and the title suggest, the key ingredients include Bamboo Charcoal. Bamboo Charcoal is nature’s purifying powerhouse. Charcoal helps to draw out the impurities from the skin as it absorbs pore-clogging oils. I swear you can feel it working. It also includes 1% Salicylic Acid, which has long been known as an effective ingredient at clearing acne. Salicylic Acid not only helps to exfoliate the pores, but it gently cleanses the skin. Finally, Witch Hazel is used in the formula as an astringent to help shrink the pores.
