How to Treat Acne with Cosmedix

Cosmedix’s uniquely soothing approach to skincare may not seem like a perfect match for stubborn acne, but in fact, it’s an incredible way to treat and decongest breakout-prone skin. Treating inflammation can reduce the visibility of acne instantly.

Better yet, once blemishes are cool and calm, you’re much less likely to see marks or scarring in the future. This path to a spotless complexion makes Cosmedix a great investment in the future of your skin while also clearing skin in the moment.

How to Start Treating Your Acne With Cosmedix?

Below, we’ve put together the perfect Cosmedix product combo for treating stubborn, acne-prone skin in no time.


Cosmedix Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser

Start your routine off right with gentle but potent Cosmedix Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser. Lactic Acid provides light exfoliation to help decongest the skin’s surface. Tea Tree Oil adds antibacterial benefits. This lightweight formula refreshes and revives skin, prepping skin perfectly for the rest of your routine.

This cleanser is perfect for all skin types and conditions, including problematic skin and sun damaged skin. This product gently and effectively restores epidermal regularity, and softens the skin. Use both morning and evening; moisten hands. Add pea size drop of cleanser and smooth onto face. Using quick circular motions, work into lather, rinse well. May be applied full strength and leave on 1-5 min. for a purifying mask treatment.


Cosmedix Define Resurfacing Treatment

Treat problem skin after cleansing with Cosmedix Define Resurfacing Treatment, a highly active but easily tolerated refining treatment containing Retinol A, a trans-retinol. Retinol A stimulates cell turnover by exfoliating the top layer of skin while boosting new cell growth. This special action works to minimise scarring and breakouts without irritating skin or stripping out healthy moisture. Lightly hydrating Define Resurfacing Treatment won’t clog pores; rather, it balances moisture levels to minimise excessive oil production.

This is a fabulous treatment for all skin types, but particularly problem skin and sun damaged skin, or for a radiance boost. Apply a small amount to freshly cleansed and toned skin 2-4 times weekly as part of your nightly regimen. 


Cosmedix Hydrate+ Daily Moisturizer

Hydrate without the weight! Smooth on this light antioxidant moisturiser, fortified with SPF 15. The soothing boost of hydration from Hydrate+ Daily Moisturizer isn’t heavy enough to clog pores, instead providing just the right amount of moisture for blemish-prone skin and easily congested skin. Zinc Oxide calms the skin and provides sun protection to minimise the risk of post-acne scarring and pigmentation.

This advanced zinc oxide mineral sunscreen formula provides exceptional UV protection without potentially irritating synthetic chemicals. Apply daily or every 90 minutes when outside in strong sunlight.


Cosmedix Clear Deep Cleansing Mask

Any skin type can always benefit from an additional treatment 2 to 3 times a week. Cosmedix Clear Deep Cleansing Mask is the perfect way to perk up oily and breakout-prone skin. This deep-cleansing but gentle formula is enriched with calming Sulphur and minerals, absorbing excess oil and impurities for an instant matte, powder-soft complexion.

Cosmedix Clear Deep Cleansing Mask is a super-absorbent clarifying mask for oily & problem skin.

  1. Apply a generous amount to damp, clean skin 2-3 times weekly

  2. Leave on for 5-10 minutes.

  3. Rinse with water.

It can also be applied as a spot treatment.

Finding great skincare products for problem skin is the key to fighting oil and breakouts, but that’s not all that’s required. Consistency is the name of the game when it comes to clearing your skin. Here are our tips:

  1. Be sure to follow the first 3 steps above daily.

  2. Serums need only be used once a day, but cleanser and moisturiser are essential steps in your morning and evening skincare routine.

  3. Be sure you’re cleansing and moisturising twice a day.

  4. Mask 2 to 3 times per week, and you’re on your way to clear, stunning skin with Cosmedix.
