Why the CeraVe Resurfacing Retinol Serum and Acne Foaming Cleanser Are the Ultimate Acne-Fighting Duo
We love experimenting with our skin-care regimen. From new products and formulas to buzzy skin-loving ingredients, it seems like we’re always switching things in and out of our everyday routine. But sometimes there are certain products that are practically made to be used in tandem. Case in point: the CeraVe Resurfacing Retinol Serum and Acne Foaming Cleanser. If you have acne, you might want to press pause on the constant rotation of new products and stick to this serum and cleanser on the daily to fight blemishes.
The new Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser should be the first step in your anti-acne skin-care regimen. Formulated with benzoyl peroxide and hyaluronic acid, niacinamide and ceramides, it helps clear pimples and blackheads while helping maintain your skin’s barrier. This is important because your skin’s barrier acts as a shield to protect it against external aggressors. While many acne-fighting skin-care products can be quite drying, this one does just the opposite. The result? Skin that is left feeling ultra hydrated and soothed without any flakiness in sight.
In the evening, after washing your face with the acne cleanser, you’re going to want to follow up with the Resurfacing Retinol Serum. This serum is formulated to help smooth and improve skin texture by reducing the appearance of acne scars and minimizing the look of large pores. It contains encapsulated retinol, which means that the powerful ingredient is enveloped in an outer coating of moisture, for a more delicate, yet deeply penetrable effect. The cleanser and serum together give you a recipe for skin that is smoother, hydrated and more equipped to get rid of acne blemishes and scars.
