Banish Blemishes with ClarityMD

ClarityMD

One of the great things of a beauty site is we get so many great skin and beauty products to try. One of the downsides trying too many products can wreak havoc on my skin. My skin is fairly sensitive so from time to time I switch products too fast and have to deal with blemishes.

With the cold weather and way too many switch ups the last month my skin was not looking pretty. While I was reducing wrinkles and improving tone I was also overwhelming my skin to the point of constant breakouts. Lucky for me I had some ClarityMD Acne Solution I had been waiting to review. Now while I love skin clearing products I find most help clear up my skin but also dry it out and I go from a blemish to icky dry, red patches. ClarityMD is here to prove you can clear your skin up without drying it out.

When I started this last week I had a few blemish some that were just starting to form and some I was waiting for them to heal and clear up. I started using the product to wash my face in the morning and night and would apply the clarifying gel to any blemishes. I cant tell you after one weeks use this not only works fast but I have had zero irritation or dryness which I have never been able to achieve with a skin clearing product.

The best part it works great on all stages. Whether the blemish was just forming, at the climax of ugly or in the healing process ClarityMD pushed the fast forward button. I am so excited and happy to find something that  can clear up my skin without drying it out. This will be a permanent must-have on my beauty product list.

Introducing ClarityMD: The Total Acne Solution $49.50
Congratulations! You have found ClarityMD™ for the fast clearance of acne, without irritation. This is the only product available with PCX technology*, a breakthrough discovery that aids salicylic acid in clearing acne, without causing the side effects of other prescription or OTC acne products such as excessive dryness, stinging, and redness/irritation.
Acne therapies containing benzoyl peroxide, retinoids, or a combination of antibiotics and benzoyl peroxide can cause excessive dryness, redness, irritation, and peeling. But don’t worry! ClarityMD contains no benzoyl peroxide, no alcohol, or other harsh preservatives. Instead, ClarityMD uses a patent pending combination of powerful antimicrobials, and soothing anti-inflammatory, along with salicylic acid. What this means to you, is much faster acne clearance, without the “collateral damage”.

Fast Acne Relief
A recent study shows that ClarityMD reduced inflammatory acne in patients by 56% in just 7 days, and over 90% in 14 days. This is incredibly fast! Working up to 3 times faster than other leading acne medications.

No Collateral Damage
Have you tried other acne products only to find that the “cure” is worse than the problem? So many of them are so very “hard” on your skin that you feel you can’t leave the house. That is what we call “collateral damage” or the undesirable side effects you suffer just to try to get rid of those re-occurring pimples. ClarityMD is different. It is formulated like an elegant skincare product, and infused with skin soothing anti-inflammatory. As a result – ClarityMD:

  • Does Not Dry Skin
  • Does Not Irritate Skin
  • Does Not Cause Redness in Skin
  • Does Not Cause Peeling

Easy To Use
There has never been an easier way to say good by to acne! ClarityMD is an elegant, two step system. Use it just once in the morning, and once at night;

Step 1: Pore Clarifying Cleanser:
This non-soap Cleanser also combines beta hydroxyl and salicylic acid to impart an invigorating clean, stimulating skin fuction and improving skin texture. Lather it all over your skin for about 60 seconds. After cleansing pad-dry skin with a soft towel and you are ready to apply ClarityMD Clarifying Gel.

Step 2: Clarifying Gel
This is a powerful acne killer that actually babies your skin, not only knocking out acne, but improve the texture and feel of your skin the process. Apply dime-size amount with your hand over your face, starting with the most acne prone areas, and spreading out over entire face.

ClarityMD The Total Acne Solution is available for purchase online at claritymdacne.com.
