Acne can take weeks to form underneath the skin with multiple factors including hormonal changes and stress, leading to excess oil, dead skin and congested pores. This ultimately results in a pimple on the surface. The UNBLEMISH Refining Acne Wash combats the acne cycle right from the start by exfoliating and clearing pores from excess oil and debris to purify and minimize the formation of blemishes. Salicylic acid delivers chemical exfoliation to pores to gently slough away dead skin cells, preventing future breakouts caused by sebum buildup and clogged pores. Colloidal sulfur absorbs excess sebum and neutralizes acne causing bacteria. The wash works effectively to refine and purify skin without using harsh exfoliants or leaving the skin feeling dry or tight. The result is a consistently clear, radiant and balanced complexion.
