Care Acne Treatment - A Safer Alternative to Benzoyl Peroxide

Acne is something we all have to deal with. Even if you are usually blessed with clear skin, acne has a habit of flaring up at the worst possible times. Whether it’s a reaction to a makeup product or a hormonal imbalance, acne can strike out of nowhere. You want to have an acne treatment at the top of your makeup bag that you can reach for. For years, benzoyl peroxide has been the product of choice, but it can sometimes do more harm than good. At Tuesday in Love, we think we’ve found the perfect solution to all of our acne problems.


The Issue with Benzoyl Peroxide

While benzoyl peroxide is an ingredient that you’ll find on the shelves of most beauty stores, it’s not everything it’s made out to be. Benzoyl peroxide works by essentially peeling away your skin to remove dead skin cells and other impurities. While this treatment can give you results, it can quickly dry out your skin and cause inflammation if you have sensitive skin. As it peels your skin, it leaves you at risk of sun damage if you forget to wear your sunscreen.

If you need a quick fix, benzoyl peroxide can make your acne worse before it gets better. No one wants that.


Why Our Care Acne Treatment Is Your Skin’s BFF

Our acne treatment will keep your skin soft to the touch and make you forget about your acne. It’s formulated with sensitive skin in mind, meaning it’s a handbag essential for everyone (including men – acne is an issue for all of us!). 


At Tuesday in Love, our Care Acne treatment is a three-system that can double as a skincare routine. You can use the facial cleanser and treatment cream morning and night while applying the spot treatment gel when needed. Using the cleanser and moisturizer together can help you get to the root cause of your acne, unclogging your pores and helping your skin better absorb the active ingredients in your other skincare products.

Our treatment cream works overtime to protect your skin from future acne and skin irritation. It contains zinc oxide, which boosts your skin’s natural protective barrier to stop oxidative stress. The Care facial cleanser is packed full of natural ingredients like aloe vera, chamomile and green tea extract. These three hero ingredients will nourish your skin, reducing the redness around your acne, and smoothing your skin’s texture.

We’re going to finish by highlighting the spot treatment gel as it’s our favourite acne-fighting sidekick. You can use it as an overnight treatment or apply it under or over your makeup for a spot treatment. This blemish-control gel is powered by organic willow bark extract, a natural source of salicylic acid. It penetrates your pores, lifting the dead skin cells and reducing the excess sebum that causes acne. If your blemishes are already showing, salicylic acid can help break them down and reduce their appearance.
