While Face Reality offers a range of acne-friendly products you can purchase directly from the brand, like a sulfur treatment, salicylic acid toner, and even an acne-safe starter kit, there are a handful of products, like the 8% L-Mandelic Serum (the brand’s gold-standard for treating acne and hyperpigmentation), that are only available through the recommendation of a certified acne expert. These products utilize acne-targeting active ingredients to help produce skin-clearing results. If you’re in need of a personalized routine that caters to your unique needs, it’s the latter you’ll want to seriously consider. And if it ever feels like your skin is getting used to the formulas you started with (yes, it can adapt, rendering them ineffective), your certified acne expert can adjust your product routine. After all, your relationship with your skin is an evolving one, so growing and bending with its needs is all part of the process.
Face Reality says it focuses on a holistic approach to skin care, so your treatment plan won’t just involve new products, but also a closer look at your lifestyle — do you sweat a lot? Do you spend a lot of time in a dry or dehydrating environment? How much sleep do you tend to get? All of these things may contribute to your skin health, and your certified acne expert can help get to the bottom of whatever is causing your breakouts. Real-life couples have relationship therapists, but you and your skin have Face Reality.
