Those with acne-prone skin often experience excess oil and shine. Obagi CLENZIderm targets both of these concerns to promote a clearer, healthier complexion. Obagi CLENZIderm Foaming Cleanser is a lightweight, purifying face wash that reaches deep down into pores to remove oil, dirt, debris and makeup that contribute to acne breakouts with 2% salicylic acid.
This will also improve the absorption of your other acne treatment products so you experience clear skin and fewer breakouts. Exfoliators such as salicylic acid help unclog pores without over-drying the complexion so you don’t experience tightness, dryness or flaking. Soothing ingredients prevent inflammation and redness that is often associated with acne.
Precaution: This product contains salicylic acid, don't use if you have an allergy to Aspirin, pregnant/ trying to become pregnant or breast feeding. Don't use products that contain Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA's), Salicylic Acid and Retinols if taking Roaccutane and for up to a year after you have stopped taking it.
Products that contain Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA's) or Beta-Hydroxy Acid (BHA) may cause initial flaking, tingling or irritation to the skin. For some this may be part of the normal resurfacing process. This generally improves as the skin ‘gets used’ to the treatment. AHA and BHA products may be introduced with less frequent use, and application can be increased as the skin becomes accustomed to it (follow product directions). At first start by gradually introducing one AHA or BHA products at a time into your skincare regime. Also some breakouts may occur initially, due to purging of the follicles. Discontinue use if you have severe redness, itching, burning, rash, swelling or blistering.
Apply a sunscreen daily when using products that contain Alpha Hydroxy acids (AHA's) & BHA's.
