A Powerful BHA Serum To Reduce Clogged Pores And Breakouts

What’s the best skin care product to get breakout, blemishes, blackheads and clogged pores under control? Research continues to show that BHAs (beta hydroxy acids like salicylic acid) is one of the best ingredients for acne. With that being said, I’m excited to introduce our newest product with this powerful ingredient, BHA Clarifying Serum.

What it is: BHA Clarifying Serum is a treatment serum for sensitive skin that uses a blend of time-released acids (lactic, glycolic and salicylic acid) to clear clogged pores,  prevent milia (those white bumps that appear under the surface of the skin), lift acne scar discoloration and reduce acne-causing bacteria to reveal clearer, smoother skin. BHA Clarifying Serum does not contain SD alcohol, parabens, synthetic colors, artificial fragrance, phthalates and is safe for sensitive skin…

Who it’s for: For oily, combination, sensitive and acne-prone skin types. At Renée Rouleau, we have nine skin types so this would be suggested for skin types #1, #2, #3 and #4.

    What is the difference between betaine salicylate and salicylic acid? Is 3% prescription strength? Thanks!

      Betaine salicylate is gentler than salicylic because it combines the exfoliating properties of salicylic acid with the moisturizing properties of betaine helping to prevent the build-up of dead skin cells and the further blocking of the pores. I’m not sure if 3% is prescription strength.

    Should skin be damp with toner when applying this serum? Thank you!

      Yes, alcohol-free toner should always be left damp before applying serum. It helps the serum absorb deeper within the skin to get the best results. Enjoy!
