myth: breakouts mean my skin isn't clean.

Busted: The belief that a blackhead is dirt feeds another myth about breakouts – that it’s not clean, or is not being properly cleaned.

Over-cleansing skin with the hopes that you’ll clear breakouts may only trigger more breakouts, thanks to stimulating an over-production of oil.  Moreover, over-cleansing causes dryness which can lead to sensitivity, as dry skin has fewer protective lipids that keep skin healthy.

To get skin clean without over-stripping, reach for Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash. This features Salicylic Acid, which dives deep into pores to help thoroughly clean skin. Refreshing Orange Oil Peel Extract revives and energizes so you know skin is clean because it feels clean!
