Acnedote™ Skincare Routine

Raise your hand if you’ve ever had a pimple, breakout, blemish, blackhead…you get the picture. We’re guessing 100% of you have your hands up right now. That’s because acne is way more common than you may think and doesn’t discriminate who it affects. Now, raise your hand if you’ve ever picked or popped at any of those pesky pimples? Don’t be shy, we’ve done it too. We know how satisfying it can be to quickly tackle a skincare woe. But! In honor of National Acne Awareness Month, we’re here to say that it’s 2018 and we’re changing our ways.

Picking or popping problematic skin areas can lead to a number of issues, like lengthening the lifespan of said pimple, potential scarring, and exposure to bacteria. No thank you! Luckily, we have just the thing you need to help clear up skin and keep blemishes at bay. Our Alba Botanica® Acnedote™ skincare collection offers a complete lineup of products that clean, moisturize, and target problematic areas. It’s time to give that acne of yours some tough love!

Step 1: So Fresh, So Clean
Let’s start with the basics. Cleansing your skin is the first step in any successful skincare routine. Whether you’re looking for a good face and body scrub to slough away dirt, oil, and dead skin cells, a super deep clean that goes the distance in de-gunking pores, or an on-the-go solution, we’ve got you covered. All of our Acnedote™ products use plant-derived Salicylic Acid and Willow Bark Extract to break down barriers within the skin’s layers, helping to relieve pores of potential clogging and ward off pimple-causing bacteria. Our cleansers are gentle, dermatologist tested, and non-comedogenic. A triple win, if you ask us!

Step 2: Treat
What comes after cleansing but before moisturizing? Our Acndeote™ Deep Clean Astringent, of course. Formulated to reach deep down into pores and breakdown excess oil, this botanically-based astringent helps prevent zits before they even start. It’s even been clinically tested to reduce breakouts in eight hours (!!!), and 70% of users reported clearer skin in just seven days.  

If you’re looking to take your skincare routine an extra step further, try out our award winning Acnedote™ Clearing Gel Peel. In as few as 1-5 minutes a week, this botanically-effective anti-pimple peel helps blast any bacteria that may cause acne.

Step 3: Moisturize
Next up is the ultimate acne-fighting and skin-mattifying lotion. Our Maximum Strength Oil Control Lotion scales down shine and weightlessly hydrates skin, leaving it smooth, fresh, and prepped for daytime or nighttime. 

Step 4: Target
Last, but not least – a few options to keep kicking acne’s butt:

Toss a tube of our Invisible Treatment Gel or Fast Fix™ for a Pimple Tinted Zit Zapper for on-the-go acne-fighting touchups. These pocket-sized skincare superheroes go to work quickly. Our Treatment Gel reduces redness and inflammation in just four hours, while the Tinted Zit Zapper offers up a bit of coverage while working to remedy the underlying problem.

Drrrrrrrumroll please for the newest addition to our Acnedote™ fam! Our Acnedote™ Pimple Patches are perfect for skincare emergencies. Each patch helps to draw fluids and oils out and away from skin, while the tight seal encourages faster healing. These guys are the real winner when it comes to preventing picking or popping. Did we mention they stay in place as you sleep!? Talk about beauty rest.
