Day Treatment Definition of Acne Acne is an inflammatory skin condition that occurs when oil and dead skin cells block the pore opening, causing sebum (oil) to build up inside the pore.
Day Treatment Acne Life Cycle Stage 1: Clogged Pores. Cells lining pores shed and mix with excess sebum produced by sebaceous glands, forming a plug, which leads to clogged pores. Stage 2: Bacteria. Accumulated sebum and dead cells attract the P. acnes (or propionibacterium) bacteria naturally found in skin, which feeds on oil and multiplies rapidly inside pores. Stage 3: Inflammation. This bacterial overgrowth triggers the natural inflammatory response causing swelling and redness. This can ultimately lead to discoloration and scarring.

Day Treatment Treating Acne When treating acne topically, dermatologists recommend a three-pronged approach: Unclog pores and keep them clear. Control oil which helps to limit bacterial growth. Reduce inflammation.

Day Treatment Key Benefit Supported Addresses the PRESENT issues of blemish-prone skin: White tea extract is a powerful antioxidant that restores the skin’s natural resiliency and supports the skin’s natural resistance (depleted when fighting acne) to the aging effects of the environment. Antioxidants inhibit oxidation and reduce the formation of compounds that contribute to pimples turning red. Salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid, penetrates pores and gently exfoliates to eliminate most blemishes. Beta hydroxy acids provide long term benefits by sloughing off dead skin cells and by speeding up the cell renewal processes of the skin. Salicylic acid is lipophilic and, therefore, has an affinity for oils allowing it to penetrate into the pores and break down the plug. Salicylic acid keeps follicles clear so the pimple forming environment is wiped out.
Day Treatment Key Benefit Supported Addresses the FUTURE issues of blemish-prone skin: Hyperpigmentation occurs when an external stressor (i.e., sun, stress, hormones) begins the production of melanin, which can lead to discoloration. Hexapeptide-2 helps reduce the development of dark spots by inhibiting melanin production. It also helps reduce the potential development of dark spots by fighting the external stressors that cause hyperpigmentation.
Day Treatment Key Benefit Supported Addresses the FUTURE issues of blemish-prone skin: Lactic acid helps exfoliate dead skin cells to reveal smoother, clearer skin and keeps pores free of pore-blocking dead skin cells. Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin by essentially dissolving the glue that holds dead cells to the skin.
