The Acne and Problematic Skin Protocol for a Clear, Smooth, Glowing Complexion
Although many of us think of acne and problematic skin as something we only have to deal with during our teenage years, the truth is that these issues can strike at any time. And while we might be able to edit our photos with a single swipe of our finger, in real life banishing acne, blemishes, redness and other skin problems isn’t so easy. Even worse, those blackheads, whiteheads, dark marks and more can begin to affect your self-confidence, taking an emotional toll on your life.
While it’s important to take a look at your lifestyle and dietary habits to help determine the cause of your skin issues, choosing the right skincare products to treat your skin topically is vital to diminishing current breakouts and skin irritation, as well as preventing future problems. These products have to work in synergy to clear clogged pores, whisk away dead skin cells, facilitate cell turnover, normalize oil production and remove impurities from the skin.
That’s why at LIV by Knutek, our skincare experts developed our Acne and Problematic Skin Protocol to not only clear up blemishes and keep acne at bay, but also to calm irritation, balance the fires of inflammation that cause redness and uneven tone.
Here are the exact products you need and how to use them to get the silky smooth, healthy skin you’ve been dreaming of.
Your must-have skincare products include:
- RENS Balancing Cleanser
- KLAR Therapeutic Toner
- EDEL DRAPE A-RO Balsam Serum
- LUFT Whipped Oxygen Cream
- NY Omega Peel
Now that you know which products to choose, let’s dive into how to use them in order to finally say goodbye to those skin problems.
Morning Protocol to Banish Skin Issues
Overnight as you toss and turn on your pillow, your skin can become coated in oils and dead cells that invade your pores, causing a buildup that inevitably leads to acne, loss of elasticity and an uneven complexion.
That’s why if you want truly gorgeous skin, caring for your skin every morning when you wake up is a must.
Step #1: Perfectly Cleanse
To do this, your first step is to clear out that buildup that causes blemishes, stretches your pores and destroys your complexion.
For this, you’ll use our RENS Balancing Cleanser.
RENS is a must-have for problematic skin thanks to its ability to balance inflammation levels and calm your complexion. Enriched with MSM, RENS deeply cleanses your pores, while nourishing your skin cells, so that breakouts and redness are banished, skin is firmed and pores are tightened.
Simply massage RENS into your skin with a little water to boost its foaming action and rinse off gently with lukewarm water.
Step #2: Tone and Balance
One of the biggest issues with problematic skin involves balance. That’s because when the normal levels of microbes and fungus that live on your skin tip out of balance, problematic skin is the result.
It’s also why our skincare experts designed step two to restore balance in multiple ways. Simply mist on our KLAR Therapeutic toner to balance inflammation, microbial and fungal levels and let its rich levels of MSM, Tea Tree Oil and Honey go to work to fade dark spots left by acne, calm and reduce redness, even tone and clear breakouts.
As an added bonus, KLAR delivers potent actives that gently hydrate your skin to overcome dryness and irritation, while triggering youthful collagen and elastin formation and supporting the flexible links between cells for firmer, plumper, more lifted skin.
Step 3: Clear and Rejuvenate
To get the clearest skin possible, you have to get to the root cause of your skin problems, while repairing past damage. And that’s exactly what you’ll do in step three with our EDEL DRAPE A-RO Balsam Serum for Acne and Rosacea.
EDEL DRAPE targets the root cause of blemishes, redness and uneven tone to leave skin crystal clear, calmed and smooth, without the worries and side-effects from oral and topical antibiotics.
Infused with Australian Tea Tree Oil, plus MSM and Oxygen Plasma, EDEL DRAPE is rich in potent active ingredients that work to keep breakouts at bay, fade dark marks they leave behind and keep skin plump, lifted and opulently hydrated.
And EDEL DRAPE also delivers skin-loving Magnesium Sulfate to calm irritation, diminish redness and brighten skin, while targeting the anaerobic bacteria that lead to breakouts and dousing the fires of inflammation that lead to redness and irritation.
Simply apply six to eight drops of the silky serum to problematic areas after cleansing.
Step #4: Hydrate and nourish
Finally, it’s important to remember that dry skin is irritated skin, that’s why in step four, you’ll use our LUFT Whipped Oxygen Cream to not only provide the hydration your skin needs to stay healthy, but also nourish your skin cells from deep within.
LUFT is a light-as-air moisturizer treatment perfect for acne-prone or problematic skin. Formulated with Squalene, Jojoba, and Hemp oil, the proprietary formula balances oil production, soothes irritation, and accelerates skin repair for superior rejuvenation.
LUFT is also enhanced with Oxygen Plasma to deliver oxygen directly to your skin cells to stimulate collagen and elastin formation, and trigger your skin’s natural cell renewal and healing to fade dark marks from past breakouts and reveal a smooth, healthy, glowing complexion.
Apply LUFT to your face, neck and décolleté with your fingertips, using small circular motions.
Nighttime Protocol to Reveal Clearer Skin as You Sleep
Of course, mornings aren’t the only time your skin needs a little love.
At night, you’ll want to follow the same protocol as above, with one small change. One time per week, you’ll add NY Omega Peel to your evening protocol after cleansing.
NY Omega Peel is a fast-acting, completely non-abrasive peel with no acids, making it excellent for all skin types, especially sensitive, acne prone and mature skin. The soothing, hydrating peel lifts away the dead skin particles that can clog pores and leave skin dull, lifeless, and prematurely aged to reveal brighter, smoother and more youthful looking skin in just 90 seconds.
Apply a thin layer of NY Omega Peel to dry skin and let the ingredients activate for 30-60 seconds. Begin to gently message in a circular motion and roll away impurities and dead skin cells and then cleanse again with RENS.
Beautifully Clear Skin is Yours for the Taking
You don’t have to live with problematic skin when you use the simple protocol above.
Care for your skin, morning and night, with our daily acne and problematic skin protocol and you’ll see the clearer, softer, smoother, more radiant skin you’ve been dreaming of every time you look in the mirror.
