The Best Products for Acne

Our Skin Expert and GLO Skin Body Founder Sarah shares her top tips to fight acne, together with her acne-fighting Dermalogica heroes.

05 Jul 22

The choice in products for acne can be overwhelming. Knowing which product(s) are right is key and it's not just about treating the acne: we need to understand the skin to ensure your skin health remains in optimum condition after treating your breakouts.

We have included some helpful skin tips and our 'acne-fighting' favourites to guide you!

Healthy Skin Tips


  • Always double cleanse your skin before going to bed

Cleansing is essential - but most importantly, to double cleanse.

Your first cleanse will be with Dermalogica's PreCleanse to lift dirt, grime and oil and the second cleanse with your prescribed Dermalogica cleanser to effectively and deeply cleanse your skin. If you skip this double step, you risk increasing the likelihood of breakouts and congestion.

  • Try not to pick or touch your breakouts

Easier said than done, I know. Picking and squeezing your pimples will cause them to hang around for longer and continue the inflammation. It will cause more acne, more scar and more inflammation by doing it.

  • Maintain a healthy diet

Healthy fruits and vegetables will provide your body with all the important vitamins for your overall health and well being. Processed foods and foods high in sugar cause our insulin levels to spike.

This causes an increase in oil, which can then potentially lead to an increase in blocked follicles, even more pimples etc.

  • Drink plenty of water

Water helps flush toxins out of the body and this can help keep the skin looking clear.

  • Choose skin care, makeup and hair care products non-comedogenic.

Some ingredients are more prone to clogging pores which can lead to an increase in breakouts.

  • Get one step ahead of your hormones

If your acne is related to your monthly cycle, we suggested using a targeted product a few days prior to get on top of these pesky breakouts.

Get a good night of sleep too! While we sleep, our skin goes through its repair and rejuvenation from the day before, so sleeping well is essential for healthy skin (and body).


  • Have a skin treatment or talk to a Skin Expert for help!

Get professional advice about your skin - it might not seem like it, but everyone's skin is so different. The acne on one person's skin can be there for complete different reasons to someone else's.

Please reach out to us if you need advice and we can guide you to the right products and solutions that are best for your individual skin.

WINNER IN BEST INNOVATION - THE BEST AT-HOME LED mask for Acne in the New Beauty Awards 2022

CLEAR uses red and blue light to tackle breakouts:

  • RED LIGHT to calm the inflammation
  • BLUE LIGHT neutralises the bacteria in the sebaceous glands

The combination of the neutralising blue light and the anti-inflammatory red light helps to significantly reduce, and even eliminate active acne breakouts, resulting in a visibly smoother, clearer complexion

For Best Results, we recommend a course of treatments:

4 x 10-minute treatments per week for 6 weeks
Once the initial series is complete, use Omnilux CLEAR at the earliest signs of a breakout.

Helping your acne from the inside out

Our skin care only targets 50% of our results and bringing skin nutrition from Advanced Nutrition Programme into your daily routine, will take your results to the next level. When it comes to acne, there is a direct link between gut health and the skin. We need to treat the health of the digestive system and provide the skin with omegas to help reduce the breakouts and support a healthy skin. We recommend taking these nutritional supplements on an ongoing basis.


  • Four specific strains of skin-friendly bacteria
  • Supports gut health, immunity, reduces inflammation and decrease excessive sebum.
  • All these factors are known to contribute to acne concerns.
