Fact: Nearly 103 million people worldwide suffer from blemishes making them the most common skin concern. They are also an extremely emotional one. According to a recently Global Truth in Beauty Survey conducted by Clinique, women universally agree that outward appearance determines in large part how they are perceived by others and women around the world also claim that when they know they look beautiful, they feel more self-confident. 96% of women in the United Kingdom and 83% of women in Spain feel more self-confident when they know they look good. Almost 14,000 women from 13 countries were asked questions about their beauty habits and perceptions and the majority of women feel that having beautiful skin is possible if they take good care of themselves and their skin.
A core philosophy of Clinique is the belief that great skin can be created and that using a system of products twice a day is the best approach to creating great skin. So, Clinique put together a task force of experts in skin biology, blemishes and oil and came up with a system of products that not only treats blemishes and prevents future breakouts but also cares for the surrounding skin. Introducing the NEW Anti-Blemish Solutions 3-Step System!
How it Works
Blemishes start when the sebaceous glands produce too much oil. Sebaceous glands attach to the skin's hair follicles like little sponges. Normally the cells lining the hair follicle slough off regularly and the oil passes to the surface of the skin. But when this fails to happen, a pore becomes plugged, causing irritation.
Combining exfoliating and blemish-controlling agents with oil-controlling and anti-irritation agents, this multi-functional system helps to unclog pores, minimise excess oil, calm and soothe irritated skin and reduce the appearance of redness. It also helps prevent the conditions that can lead to breakouts while helping to control excess oil.
Why it Works
The point of difference in Clinique's Clear Skin system is a comprehensive four prong, dermatologist-recommended approach to treating blemishes:
1. Exfoliation: to clear away dead surface cells that clog pores
2. Oil-control: to prevent excessive oil from combining with dead skin cells
3. Blemish-control: to keep skin's surface clean and free from buildup
4. Anti-irritation: to comfort and soothe irritation and redness
Products that Work
Improved! Anti-Blemish Solutions Cleansing Foam
This gentle and efficacious foam cleanser will thoroughly cleanse skin and has been reformulated to work in synergy with Anti-Blemish Solutions Clarifying Lotion and Clearing Moisturiser. Created for all skin types, it works to effectively remove dirt and oil, unclog pores and kill blemish-causing agents while not irritating skin.
New! Anti-Blemish Solutions Clarifying Lotion
Specifically formulated for blemish-prone skin, this extremely gentle, 2-phase lotion does double duty: exfoliates and helps reduce the excess oil that can lead to more breakouts. Enriched with oil-absorbing powders, this mattifying Clarifying Lotion instantly eliminates shine and de-flakes skin's surface to reveal clearer skin.
New! Anti-Blemish Solutions Clearing Moisturiser
The magic of this moisturiser lies in the oil-free formula that provides an appropriate level of comfort and hydration to minimise the dryness and peeling often associated with blemish treatments, while also controlling oily output throughout the day. It not only treats blemishes but also prevents them. Using a "blocking technology", it creates an invisible, breathable block to help prevent conditions that can lead to breakouts and protect the skin from blemish causing agents.
It Works Everyday
Committing to a daily regimen - twice a day - works to treat the entire face, not just affected areas, which helps minimise the reoccurrence and severity of breakouts. It's important to remember that each step builds on the one before, providing skin with the best possible treatment. With diligent and consistent use, you'll see a real difference: skin becomes clearer, smoother and healthier, without irritation, tightness or dryness.
