Did You Know? Skin inflammation, which triggers free radical damage, takes away clarity and can leave the skin looking dull at any age. In fact, there’s growing evidence that acne inflammation causes skin to age at a faster rate than it would otherwise.
Toner Objectives After viewing this course, you should have an understanding of the following: Functions of Nu Skin Clear Action ™ Toner. Key benefits associated with using the Toner. Key ingredients in the Toner.
Toner 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.
Toner 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.

Toner 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.
Toner Nu Skin Clear Action ™ System Nu Skin Clear Action ™ is a comprehensive acne treatment system that addresses the full spectrum of effects— past, present, and future —associated with acne and helps keep the skin looking vibrant and healthy. Each product in the Nu Skin Clear Action™ System is specifically formulated to address the past, present, and/or future effects of acne.
Toner More Than Toning For individuals who are dealing with acne, their skin needs more than toning. They are dealing with visible redness and irritation but are also battling free radicals that can not be seen. They need a toner that can soothe, assist in controlling oil, and supply much needed antioxidants.
Toner Nu Skin Clear Action ™ Toner This advanced toner calms red, irritated skin and manages oil levels, promoting a shine-free complexion. Replenishes the natural antioxidant supply that is lost when your skin is fighting acne.
Toner Key Benefits Addresses the PAST issues of blemish-prone skin: Replenishes lost antioxidants that have been eliminated while the skin is fighting breakouts. Restores vibrancy. Addresses the PRESENT issues of blemish-prone skin: Works to eliminate most blemishes. Decreases the appearance of inflammation and soothes the skin.

Toner Key Ingredients Potassium ascorbyl tocopheryl phosphate — restores the natural antioxidant supply that is lost when your skin is fighting breakouts. Salicylic acid —a beta hydroxy acid that penetrates pores to eliminate most blemishes. Licorice extract ( Dippotassium glycyrrhizate ) — soothes skin and helps reduce the appearance of redness. Zinc PCA —controls oil, helping prevent shine and future breakouts.
Toner Key Benefit Supported Vitamin C Vitamin E Addresses the PAST issues of blemish-prone skin: Potassium ascorbyl tocopheryl phosphate (a special union of water-soluble vitamin C and fat-soluble vitamin E) restores the natural antioxidant supply that is lost when your skin is fighting breakouts. Because it is both water and fat soluble, it has a greater ability to penetrate the layers of the skin to provide maximum antioxidant protection. Potassium ascorbyl tocopheryl phosphate has also been found to have anti-acne and skin brightening benefits. Vitamin C enhances collagen production and interferes with the chemical reaction that produces the dark spots that blemishes can leave as they heal.
Toner Key Benefit Supported Addresses the PRESENT issues of blemish-prone skin: Salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid, penetrates pores and gently exfoliates to eliminate most blemishes. Beta hydroxy acids provide long term benefits by helping slough off dead skin cells and by speeding up 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. Licorice extract ( Dipotassium glycyrrhizate ) has been found to have good anti-irritant and anti-redness properties. Dipotassium glycyrrhizate, when applied twice daily at the concentration found in the Nu Skin Clear Action ™ Toner, will calm skin and reduce the annoying redness that makes acne more obvious.
Toner Key Benefit Supported Addresses the FUTURE issues of blemish-prone skin: Zinc PCA is a 5 alpha-reductase inhibitor, which interferes with the stimulation of sebaceous glands to produce sebum. By reducing sebum flow, zinc PCA helps prevent shine and future breakouts. It also diminishes redness and soothes the skin.
