Step 1: Cleanse with clarity cleanser

**Morning and Evening Routine

Start and end your day with our clarity cleanser. This gentle, yet effective cleanser is specifically formulated to target oily and acne-prone skin without stripping it of its natural moisture.

Key Benefits:
- Removes excess oil and impurities
- Unclogs pores
- Reduces inflammation
- Prepares your skin for the next steps in your routine

How to Use:

Apply a small amount of clarity cleanser to damp skin. Massage gently in circular motions for a. minute or two, focusing on areas prone to oiliness and breakouts. Avoid eyes.  Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat your skin dry with a clean towel.

Step 2: Treat with plant-based retinol serum

**Evening Routine

Incorporate our plant-based retinol into your nightly routine to combat both acne and the signs of aging. Retinol is known for its ability to promote cell turnover, reduce fine lines, and improve overall skin texture. Use in the evening only as any retinol or retinoid will make you photosensitive.

Key Benefits:
- Minimizes acne and breakouts
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improves skin texture and tone
- Boosts collagen production

How to Use:

After cleansing, apply a pea-sized amount of our retinol serum to your face, avoiding the eye area. Start with using it every other night to allow your skin to adjust, then gradually increase to nightly use as tolerated.

Step 3: Hydrate with clarity moisturizer

**Morning and Evening Routine

Hydration is essential, even for oily and acne-prone skin. Our clarity moisturizer provides lightweight hydration while addressing excess oil production and preventing breakouts- all while address the acid mantel, our skin's protective barrier, with the nutrition it needs.

Key Benefits:
- Balances oil production
- Hydrates without clogging pores
- Calms and soothes irritated skin
- Supports a clear, smooth complexion

How to Use:

After applying our retinol serum (in the evening) or after cleansing (in the morning), take a small amount of clarity moisturizer and gently massage it into your skin until fully absorbed.
