Enlarged Pores, Blackheads And Bumpiness Got You Feeling Like You’re In A Skin Slump?

Sit back and let these hardworking acid treatments target all over the above, and more.


Maybe we should listen to our mothers and stop looking at ourselves too closely in the mirror, or maybe our pores really are growing and growing! It seems that enlarged pores, blackheads and general bumpiness are causing many of us to have mini freak-out moments. What causes blackheads and pores to clog up? Diet, oil, product build-up, makeup, dirt and so on. Therefore, cleaning the skin’s surface is one of the key steps that you simply cannot skip. Ever! The good news is that Glycolic and Salicylic Acids are wonderful at unclogging pores and smoothing out skin texture. To make it easy, we asked our skin experts to suggest some targeted kits and products that deliver on their promises of reducing pores, refining skin texture and erasing blackheads.




Gly C Refine Skin Micro Dermabrasion Kit Stage 1 – Gentle 

This kit is perfect for newcomers to Hydroxy Acids or those with sensitive skin conditions as it allows your skin to slowly acclimatise to the new ingredient. With six products, it’s a complete routine to target these issues. Glycolic, Salicylic and other Hydroxy Acids help to penetrate deeper into the pores to soften and clear away skin blockages and sebaceous plugs (such as blackheads and pimples). Once you’ve tried this kit your skin will feel (and look) utterly refreshed. It contains $327.50 worth of products, so you’ll save $117.50 if you buy them together as a set instead of individually.



Gly C Refine Microdermabrasion Kit Stage  2 – Active Strength 

A secret weapon set of six high strength glycolic products for a complete routine, all packaged up in a handy travel bag. Importantly, both the moisture and eye cream formulas in this kit mean that the skin is receiving a boost of hydration while the high potency of the active is easier for the skin to tolerate. As with the previous kit, they target skin texture and clarify the complexion. For those familiar with Glycolic Acid then you can head straight into this active strength kit. Again, you’ll save big-time if you buy these products as a set.



Anti Blemish Face Wash  

Salicylic Acid is the hero ingredient in this deep cleansing foaming gel that won’t strip or dry out blemish-prone complexions. This acid is the perfect anti-congestion ingredient as it effortlessly clears pores as well buffs off dirt, dead skin cells and other product build-up sitting on you the skin’s surface to reveal smoother, more luminous complexions. Regular exfoliation with this wash will also help prevent future clogging and congestion. 




Age Reversal 5 Acids 12% Skin Peel pH 3.5  

If you really want to dial things up a notch, then maybe now’s the time to try an at-home skin peel for a full-face detox. With a total acid content of 12%, this one contains Glycolic Acid and a host of other AHAs and BHA’s for serious rejuvenation, skin brightening benefits. It fights congestion as well as visibly clears existing blackheads and general bumpiness to reveal fresher-looking skin. This is not one for sensitive skin types.



Age Reversal Niacinamide + Vitamin Complex Serum 

Niacinamide combined with Retinol and Vitamin C is a match made in skin heaven.

We call this an all-in-one formula because it literally does it all: hydrates, brightens, tightens, and minimises the appearance of pores for fast results. Also, Niacinamide helps regulates sebum production (to keep future breakouts at bay) and increases production and turnover of epidermal cells. 



Essentials Hydrating & Healing Serum 

Combining eight skin-plumping Hyaluronic Acids, Niacinamide and a host of other healing ingredients, this serum is the perfect post-peel skin treat. With the ability to hold 1,000 times its weight in water, Hyaluronic Acid is a moisturising must-have in your regime. Generously lather on to restore and maintain the skin’s barrier function and replenish dry, dehydrated complexions.



Clear Skin Multi Fruit Acid Serum 

Another clever serum packed with Hydroxy Acids such as Salicylic Acid and Ethyl Ascorbic Acid to target blemished, blackhead-prone skin. Hydroxy Acids easily remove dead skin cells sitting inside pores and anything hanging around on the skin’s surface. This in turn works to smooth out texture, decrease congestion and minimise the appearance of pesky pores. An added benefit of Salicylic Acid is that it’s an anti-inflammatory so it’s also brilliant for those prone to redness.
