Night 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.
Night 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.

Night Treatment Key Benefit Supported Addresses the PAST issues of blemish-prone skin: Alpha lipoic acid helps decrease the appearance of remnant marks (uneven skin texture and discoloration) associated with past breakouts. It stimulates the skin’s nutrient intake and removal of wastes, promoting healthy skin cell renewal and scar tissue repair. The result is a smoother appearance and a reduction of scars left from PAST breakouts. Alpha lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant that boosts the efficacy of vitamins C and E in the skin and is patented for reducing erythema (redness), pore size, and scarring.
Night Treatment Key Benefit Supported Addresses the PAST issues of blemish-prone skin: Retinol (vitamin A) accelerates skin renewal. It helps thicken skin, normalize lipid synthesis, and increase collagen synthesis. By doing so, retinol smoothes uneven skin texture, improves elasticity, and helps lighten discoloration.
Night Treatment Key Benefit Supported Addresses the PRESENT issues of blemish-prone skin: Licorice root extract ( Glycyrrhiza glabra ) is a 5 alpha-reductase inhibitor, which interferes with the stimulation of sebaceous glands to produce sebum. It also interferes with the enzymes that stimulate pro-inflammatory responses in the skin, so it is a good anti-inflammatory agent. This ingredient is what contributes to the yellow color of the Night Treatment. 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 the follicles clear so the pimple forming environment is wiped out.
