6 AcneFree Products

AcneFree Daily Skin Therapy Wash

If you have acne-prone skin— or even if you don’t— thoroughly washing your face morning and night is a critical part of maintaining a clear-looking complexion. Cleansing the face helps remove excess oil, dirt, and impurities that can clog your pores and lead to breakouts. To help prevent new acne blemishes from forming, reach for AcneFree Daily Skin Therapy Acne Wash with 2% salicylic acid. This dermatologist-tested formula is soap-free and rinses clean, removing dirt and oil to help prevent breakouts. Plus, its patented avocado extract technology is shown to reduce oil and shine.

AcneFree Oil-Free Acne Cleanser

You can never have too many cleansers in your arsenal, so here’s another that may suit your fancy. AcneFree Oil-Free Acne Cleanser is formulated with advanced micro-benzoyl peroxide and can help prevent breakouts. To use, apply a dime-sized amount to damp skin and gently massage before rinsing clean.

AcneFree Daily Skin Therapy Acne Pads

AcneFree’s Daily Skin Therapy Acne Pads, with 2% salicylic acid and soothing menthol, are designed to help open blocked pores while thoroughly cleansing your skin and preventing new acne from forming. You’ll love how refreshed your skin will feel after just a few sweeps!

Note: Excess dryness may occur when using these pads, so the brand advises starting with one application daily as needed or as directed by a doctor. If you notice any bothersome dryness or peeling, reduce the frequency of your use.

AcneFree Daily Skin Therapy Complexion Perfecting Cream

Products that target acne and breakouts can be drying, so it’s always important to reach for a moisturizer to help combat those effects. AcneFree’s Daily Skin Therapy Complexion Perfecting Cream is a lightweight emollient cream enriched with moisturizers. It gently renews the skin’s appearance for a clearer-looking complexion. Use this cream post-cleansing and toning every evening.

Whether you have severe acne or moderate blemishes every now and again, an effective spot treatment is a useful product to have on hand. Try AcneFree’s Maximum Strength Terminator 10. Formulated with micro-benzoyl peroxide, this spot treatment—with chamomile, ginger, and sea whip—attacks the source of your breakouts while helping fight breakouts between applications. Use one to three times daily, as tolerated or as directed by a specialist.

AcneFree Body Clearing Acne Spray

Unfortunately, acne is not limited to the face. It can appear on your body skin too, some of which are hard to reach like your back or shoulders. To make things easier, AcneFree designed an aerosol body spray—with salicylic acid, glycolic acid, vitamin B3 and aloe—to help clear body breakouts without leaving behind a sticky residue. What’s not to love?

Note: Many acne-fighting formulas can cause skin sensitivity to sunlight. As such, be sure to apply Broad Spectrum SPF 15 or higher as directed daily and reapply at least every two hours. Take additional sun protection measures such as seeking shade, wearing protective clothing, and avoiding peak sun hours when the rays are strongest.
