A kit to battle blemishes - The Skin Clarifying Kit

At La Clinica we’re always looking for ways to improve our products and provide better results for you and your skin. Our Clear Skin Kit has had a glow-up and we’re excited to announce it has a new look and a new name. Say hello to our revamped solution to breakouts and acne: 

Not Today! Skin Clarifying Kit


What is different about the Skin Clarifying Kit?

We still include the heavy hitters like our trusty Salicylic Acid Wash Gel, and ‘zit zapping’ Intensive Spot Serum. Now included in the anti-acne gang is the Multi Fruit Acid Serum, Retinol Oil 0.5% and the iconic Deep Hydration Moisture Cream.  



Why have we included The Deep Hydration Moisture Cream and Retinol?

There is a lot of clinical research around acne, blemishes and spots that points to skin barrier function as a necessary element in keeping spots at bay. This can be vaguely summed up in three parts:


  1. The products that are effective in managing pimples (retinol / salicylic acid) can lead to a compromised skin barrier and irritation, therefore people often stop using these products or use them inefficiently. 
  2. The acne / pimples / blemishes are caused or made worse by a compromised skin barrier as the barrier isn’t functioning effectively therefore is allowing spot-causing bacteria into the skin.
  3. A poorly functioning skin barrier can actually increase blocked pores by increasing keratin formation within the pore/hair follicle walls, making it harder for sebum to reach the surface.


Therefore, this kit is specifically designed to:

1. Include ingredients that are effective against acne

2. Support and fortify the skin barrier, reducing inflammation and allowing you to stick to the routine, improving its effectiveness.

The Skin Clarifying Kit includes:

Clear Skin Anti Blemish Face Wash

Removing the grime of the day is important for keeping buildup that causes acne at bay. The Clear Skin Face Wash effectively removes make-up and debris without stripping your skin. Use it as a body wash for all over acne treatment if you’re also struggling with bacne or chestne. 

Essentials Deep Hydration Moisture Cream

As well as fighting acne, it is important to support the skin barrier and keep your skin moisturised and hydrated. Dry and dehydrated skin can result in reduced desquamation and blocked pores, it also encourages sebum production through the hair follicles catalysing blemishes and breakouts. The result is congestion and a lackluster complexion. The Deep Hydration Moisture Cream contains unique hyaluronic acids (Zinc Hyaluronate, Hyalorepair & Sodium Hyaluronate) to target, fortify and retain hydration within the skin. As well as lipids to mimic the composition of the skin barrier such as ceramides, cholesterol and free fatty acids, supporting the skin’s natural healing abilities and barrier function. Ceramides are instrumental in the skin barrier function and topical ceramides help improve this function which is essential for assisting acne-affected skin.

Clear Skin Multi Fruit Acid Serum

Containing 2% Salicylic Acid as well as fruit extracts containing alpha hydroxy acids, a proven chemical exfoliant to clear out and unclog pores and help remove the bacteria and debris lurking beneath. Calming and anti-inflammatory it also helps with the redness that often comes with those angry, red spots.

Essentials Pure Retinol 0.5%

Yes, our favourite wrinkle-prevention solution also works against pimples! Retinol helps limit key factors of what causes blemishes. It does this by increasing skin cell turnover, regulating oil production and reducing over keratinised skin cells within hair follicles that can block pores. What’s better, our Essentials Pure Retinol is delivered in Luxurious Plant Oils, which calm and support the skin. Featuring ultra-soothing, skin-loving ingredients. Don’t forget to always apply sunscreen during the day when using retinol!

Clear Skin Intensive Spot Serum

A fast absorbing, gel-like lotion to target spots and break-outs. Containing Niacinamide, Ethyl Linoleate, Vitamin E, Allantoin, Panthenol, Willow Bark and Grape Seed Extract to support the skin barrier and calm the skin. It also contains Bakuchiol, Sulfopeptides and Amino Acids to regulate oil production.

Who is the Skin Clarifying Kit for?

If you find yourself googling ‘how to get rid of acne’ then this kit is for you. If your skin is hormonal and prone to monthly flare ups, you’ll find this kit helps you maintain clear skin and reduces the time it takes for spots to heal. 

Adults get acne too, in fact nearly half of Australians experience mild acne past their 30’s, whether it is hormonal acne, stress acne, your diet However, most solutions are aimed at teenagers which can make treating and preventing breakouts seem frustrating. La Clinica’s acne solutions are beneficial for all ages. Retinol benefits are doubled as an anti-acne solution and an anti-aging solution. 

How else can I prevent acne?

Here are our top tips to ensure your skincare efforts aren’t going to waste:

  • Never sleep with makeup on - always wash your face and apply skincare at the end of the day
  • Wash hair regularly too - the oil and products from your hair can cause scalp, neck and back acne
  • Stop touching your face
  • Always wear sunscreen
  • Change bedding and towels often

The best skincare routine for acne

The important thing to remember in order to see results from Retinol and Salicylic Acid is consistency. Commit to the routine everyday, not just when you see breakouts erupting. And remember, Retinol takes longer to work than most ingredients so expect to see smoother, more clarified skin in around 2 months. Don’t give up if you’re having trouble, see our post on why people don’t see results with retinol here - ‘How to get Retinol to work for your skin’.
