TINTED ACNE SKINCARE
TO INSTANTLY TRANSFORM YOUR ACNE-PRONE SKIN

Article Read Duration 4 min read

Acne treatments can take weeks or even months to work. Hardly ideal in a world where teens expect to look selfie-ready in an instant! While you wait for your acne treatment to take effect, heal as you conceal with tinted acne skincare to instantly hide acne marks and redness, while getting rid of acne and acne scars. The instant payoff of a tinted texture helps teens stick to their treatment, giving it time to do its thing.

I NEED MY ACNE GONE.
TODAY.

Today’s teens don’t have time for a bad skin day!

We all want to look good every day. Whether it’s for work, a night out, or simply for hanging out with friends. And what day would be complete without a few selfies to capture the best moments? But these everyday situations and moments of fun can lose their spontaneity for the 90% of teens who suffer from blemishes.

Yes, it’s possible to “cheat” to get rid of acne marks and acne redness using heavy make-up or camera filters, but altering a photo will not alter your skin condition, and caking on layers of poor-quality foundation will only clog pores and thus trigger a cycle of outbreaks for acne-prone skin.

The ultimate route to treating acne is to tackle its root causes – and that means consulting a dermatologist. To get rid of acne for good you’ll need to follow a comprehensive treatment regime that may include diet, a cleansing routine, and possibly medication. But for some, this all feels like an unbearably long road to travel. In the words of dermatologist Dr. Philippe Beaulieu: “Unfortunately, your average teen just doesn’t have the patience to stick to treatments – about half of them simply give up1.”

THE NEW INSTANT RESULTS
ACNE PRODUCTS

Soothe and conceal your acne-prone skin with tinted skincare products

These cutting-edge creams and gels contain all the effective active ingredients for reducing the appearance of acne-prone skin condition in the long term, along with purified pigments that instantly even out your complexion and cover acne redness without clogging your pores.

The result? You help your skin get better as you conceal!

Coverage is light and non-cakey, so it works well for girls, boys, and adult women and men too. Thanks to the instant transformation, you’ll be far more likely to stick to your treatment, which means the active ingredients get time to do their work tackling blemishes and acne red marks in-depth. It’s a win-win!

The bonus: Tinted care products can help defend skin against blue light

Average US adults clock up to 10 hours’ screen time each day. And that means lots of exposure to High Energy Visible Light, also known as blue light. This high-energy light can penetrate the skin even more deeply than UVA and UVB, reaching all the way down to the dermis and causing oxidative stress. For acne-prone urbanites, this can mean increased inflammation in the skin and a worsening of imperfections. The good news? Tinted acne care products help defend skin against light in the visible spectrum, including blue light.
