Review of Clean and Clear Acne Spot Treatment

Overview

Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment is an acne treatment gel that contains 2 percent salicylic acid, the highest concentration available over the counter to clear pimples. According to Clean & Clear, in a clinical study 100 percent of people showed an improvement in their acne as early as the first day using the spot treatment.

Function

The salicylic acid in Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment helps dissolve surface oil, which can prevent acne medicine from penetrating to the root of the pimple.

Active Ingredients

Salicylic acid, part of the hydroxy acid family, is a known acne-fighting ingredient that helps exfoliate dead skin cells and clear pores. Witch hazel has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, and can help alleviate pain, irritation and swelling. Glycerin helps to attract water to skin and prevent moisture loss, which can help counteract the drying effects of salicylic acid.

Application

Apply Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment to acne one to three times daily after cleansing.

Considerations

Salicylic acid is a powerful exfoliant and should be used with caution. Avoid the eye area and only apply spot treatment to breakout-prone areas. If dryness, irritation or peeling occurs, reduce frequency of application.
