Contributing to the cystic acne is dry skin. In fact, many people with dark complexions suffer from dry skin syndrome. The over-the-counter acne treatment for black skin can have a significant drying effect. Instead of drying the skin, AcnEase® acne treatment balances the skin and does not only treat the acne symptoms but also improves overall skin condition.
Dark skin may also suffer from discoloration as a result of some treatments, such as those containing retinoid or salicylic acid. AcnEase® does not discolour the skin, nor does it have any adverse effects when used over a long period of time.
AcnEase® is a safe, all-natural acne treatment and can safely be used with other herbal products. In addition to improving the acne condition AcnEase® has been reported by our clients to balance overly dry skin and to improve the condition and health of very dry hair.
