How to Visibly Calm Blemishes in Just 2 Hours

SKIN BLEMISHES

Why is it that on the day of your big party, important meeting, or hot date, it's almost inevitable that you'll wake up with a huge blemish? In these high stakes' scenarios, it's likely to be stress related, but you can't go back in time and undo the stress or your skin's response! Though what you can do is apply our Truly Targeted Blemish-Clearing Solution, rapid response technology means it immediately gets to work clearing the blemish and its practically invisible under sunscreen and makeup, let's take a deep dive.

Truly Targeted Blemish-Clearing Solution

Our invisible liquid blemish solution with 2% salicylic acid is specifically formulated to help calm blemish colour, reduce blemish size, and fade post-blemish marks. Concentrated with medicated 2% salicylic acid, 4% niacinamide and 0.2% liquorice root, the formula works to rapidly clear blemishes, calm visible redness and fade post-blemish marks. Using our exclusive "liquid patch" technology, our blemish-clearing spot treatment creates a breathable seal that layers seamlessly with sunscreen and under makeup. Simply apply 1 drop to your fingertip before dabbing directly on the blemish, wait for it to dry and voilà in just 2 hours it will calm redness, in 24 hours it will reduce blemish size and with repeated use it will fade post-blemish marks in 4 weeks.

How Does It Work?

We asked Dr. Nancy Ilaya, PhD. Kiehl’s Global Scientific Director to tell us more about how this new product works so effectively. "Our new innovative blemish treatment combines the protection of a patch and efficacy of a serum in a targeted application. Unlike conventional blemish treatments which often require 2 or more separate products – targeted treatment and physical blemish patch to address blemishes. The physical skin-like patch is invisible, behaves like skin and delivers blemish healing ingredients to diminish the size and appearance of blemishes, blemish marks and redness".

Calming Your Skin

If your skin has regular breakouts, keep our Truly Targeted Blemish-Clearing Solution to hand, but, it's well worth spending some time and energy trying to understand your skin's unique needs. You can meet with one of our skin pros from the comfort of your own home thanks to our virtual skincare consultation service. Our skin pros can help you to determine your skin type and give you personalised advice that will help you to build a routine that effectively addresses your skin's needs and lead you to more radiant skin. The first step to calmer less reactive skin in the long-term is being consistent with your skincare routine, whether you have oily skin, combination skin, dry skin, or sensitive skin.

A Daily Routine For Blemish Prone Skin

STEP # 1 - Cleanse Your Skin

Cleansing is essential for all skin types, as not only does it ensure that harmful bacteria, debris, and dirt is removed, it also makes way for your active ingredients to reach the areas they can where they can work hardest, leading to more radiant skin. Try our Ultra Facial Cleanser, a gentle pH balanced cleanser formulated with squalane, apricot kernel oil, vitamin e and avocado oil and suitable for all skin types.

STEP # 4 - Don't Forget the Sun Protection

Finally, apply your non-negotiable sunscreen, to help protect your skin from sun damage. The sun's rays can cause premature ageing and worsen the look of any dark spots or scars from blemishes, meaning skin tone can look more uneven and skin texture can be negatively targeted too. Our Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Aqua Gel SPF 50 PA++++ is non-comedogenic – meaning it won't clog pores, and the lightweight gel formula leaves skin shine-free, smooth and protected. Keep your Truly Targeted Blemish-Clearing Solution to hand for all blemish emergencies and stick to your morning and evening routine for clearer skin day after day.
