Another anti-acne launch during Acne Awareness Month, this lightweight serum is a perfect pick to battle blemishes while caring for your skin this summer (just make sure to always wear sunscreen on top because it does contain a retinoid). The brand’s exclusive LaB6 Skin Clearing Complex helps reduce the appearance of pores and discoloration from past pimples, as well as remove excess sebum so your skin doesn’t shine like a disco ball. In a consumer trial on 120 people with all skin tones across the Fitzpatrick Scale and mild-to-moderate acne, oily skin and large pores, 96 percent agreed their blemishes and blocked pores appeared reduced, 95 percent agreed it helped their skin tone appeare more even, and 94 percent agreed it left their skin looking less oily.
“Using the latest research into the power of marine plants, we have designed a six-component complex that can target not only the blemish itself, but also the main causes of blemishes,” says Robin Parker, director of R&D for THG Labs, Ameliorate’s parent company. “One of these components is derived from noni and has been shown to tackle blemish-prone skin by working in partnership with the skin’s own microbiome, helping to fight excess sebum and balancing some of the bacteria that can cause problems. Combined with a natural salicylic acid from white willow bark and lactic acid, the regime has been shown to deliver healthier-looking, more radiant and refined skin within three weeks.”
