We all wish to achieve a smooth, clear, and glowing complexion. While some of us (a very tiny percentage) are blessed with it, others have to invest time into their skincare routine daily to see results. You must be a little more cautious with the products and your routine if you have acne-prone skin. In the pool of products that don’t work, a few will help keep your complexion clear. One such skincare brand that I love for acne-prone skin are Biologique Recherche products. In this article, I will share some of the brand’s options that work like magic. Without further ado, let’s get started.
Biologique Recherche Products for Acne-Prone Skin
Step 1: Cleansing
The first step in any skincare routine is cleansing. That is the foundation of healthy skin, so you must choose a good one. If you have acne-prone skin, the right cleanser should be able to wash away all the oil and dirt from your face without making it overly dry. Lait U is a fantastic milk cleanser that does the job without stripping away the oil from your skin. The cleanser contains plenty of different nut oils that work like magnets and remove impurities while preventing dryness.
Step 2: Exfoliation
While our skin naturally sheds in a couple of days, it needs some assistance. Investing in an excellent acid-based exfoliating product will eliminate dirt and oils and result in tighter pores and rejuvenated skin. Moreover, it will make your skin look glowy, soft, and flawless once the dead layer is off. If you have never tried skin exfoliation, select a product that isn’t too strong.
This step can be counterproductive if you choose the wrong product. I personally swear by Biologique Recherche Lotion P50. If it is your first time using a chemical exfoliator, I recommend starting with Lotion P50W, as it is the gentlest of all formulations. It comes in different formulations, and you must select a suitable one based on your skin type. You can ask a dermatologist to recommend one of the following variations:
Your dead skin will slowly shed off, and your pores will become more refined. Over time, it decreases oil secretions and improves congestion in your skin without causing skin irritation.
Step 3: Masking
No skincare routine is complete without a good quality mask. While it isn’t every day, using a mask two to three times daily will keep your skin in top-notch condition. With continuous use, you will see impressive results. Masque Vivant is a fantastic option for acne-prone skin. It is known as a living mask by many due to the presence of yeast in it.
Yeast will eat away the bacteria, and dead skin cells, leaving your skin super supple and clear. This beauty will unclog your pores, purify and sanitize your skin and add natural antioxidants. If you have sensitive skin, you might find it too strong. Sensitive skin folks can try combining the Masque Vivant with the Masque VIP O2 for an added hydration boost and increased number of antioxidants.
You can also give Biomagic Mask a go which purifies your skin using bentonite clay, making it a gentler option. On the other hand, if you have firmer skin that secretes a lot of oil, you can give Masque Bain de Plantes a go. It is a refreshing multifaceted mask formulated for facial, body, and scalp application. So, you will surely get a lot of use from it.
Step 4: Serums
Any good skincare routine isn’t complete without the use of good serums. Serums contain tiny molecules that easily penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, making them all the more effective. Finding a suitable serum or a combination of serums will work wonders for you.
Serum Complexe Iribiol
Complexe Iribiol will work amazingly well for you if you have active acne. It is packed with anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties and helps prevent acne. You can use it as a spot treatment or apply it all over your face. The key is to listen to your skin constantly. When your skin starts looking a bit drier, you can discontinue the use.
If your skin is on the drier side but still acne-prone, give Amniotique a shot. It doesn’t clog your pores while still adding a lot of hydration to your skin.
If pores are your problem area, consider trying Dermopore.
Finally, let’s talk about the Placenta. It works wonders for the damage brought about by acne scars or congestion. The placental properties will reconstruct the skin, smooth skin texture, and fade acne marks while regulating your skin’s oil production.
Based on your skin concerns, you can select a cocktail of skincare products for yourself to fit all your needs.
Step 5: Cream
The final step in the acne treatment regimen is a high-quality cream. The right product will treat the skin and form a protective layer over it. There are multiple different options out there. A combination of Creme Dermopurifiante for decongestion and purification and Emulsion Gel Biosensible S.R. will work wonders for decongestion, purification, soothing the skin, alleviating redness, and regulating sebum production.
Having acne is perfectly normal and nothing to be ashamed about. Learning to manage it correctly will keep you sane and your skin clear. Establishing routines and selecting Biologique Recherche products best suited for your skin is essential. You can either visit a dermatologist and ask them to recommend you suitable products or give our list a go. If you have ever tried any other product from the brand, let us know how it worked for you, and maybe we can add it to our list. For any questions, ping our team!
