How to Create the Best Acne Skin Care Routine with Y.O.U AcnePlus

#PamperMyGiveaway: Stand to win a set of the AcnePlus series to achieve clear, acne-free skin!

Y.O.U Beauty’s new line of anti-acne products is our latest fascination and we can’t wait to tell you why.

New acne skincare lines these days are about as common as white jasmine rice. And while effective, most of them work pretty much the same way. Clean skin. Apply treatment. Moisturise. The end.

It’s all a little bit clinical. Kind of like applying medicinal cream to a wound.

But what about an acne skincare range that not only treats acne but HEALS the skin? Now, that’s new.

Healing acne with Y.O.U Beauty’s new herbal skincare range, featuring the 4D Centella plant

Developed with naturally-derived plant extracts, Y.O.U AcnePlus combats acne with 4D Centella, a medicinal plant, and Y.O.U’s signature Herbal Fusion ActivesCorn Mint Oil, Amur Cork Tree Bark and Witch Hazel.

4D Centella
A herbaceous wetland plant native to Asia

4D Centella contains bioactive compounds that have been found to calm inflammation, speed wound healing and stimulate new cell growth. And it stimulates collagen production too 🙂 The perfect ingredient for treating acne!

Herbal Fusion Actives
A soothing infusion of three herbal plant extracts

Acne is an inflammatory condition that requires gentle, soothing care. Herbal Fusion Actives of Corn Mint Oil, Amur Cork Tree Bark and Witch Hazel is greatly soothing, reducing the redness of acne with plant actives and a refreshing aroma.

Tested and approved by a group of people with acne-prone and oily skin, the AcnePlus series have been proven with effective, visible results in just 7 days!

The 5-Step “ByeBye Acne” Skincare Routine Y.O.U Need To Know

Daily acne care doesn’t need to be complex in order to be effective. It just needs to be correctly applied.

The Y.O.U AcnePlus skincare routine requires just 5-steps but what is the correct order to apply these products? Do you use toner first? Or spot treatment? Does serum come before moisturiser or after?

We did the research to show you how to layer these products and create the BEST skincare routine with Y.O.U AcnePlus products.

In just 5 easy-to-follow steps, clear skin will be yours. Let’s go!

Step 1: Cleanse Gently But Well
With AcnePlus Low pH Calming Cleanser

Cleansing rids the skin of oil, dirt, makeup, and sweat– anything that clogs the pores. It also kills off bacterial nasties sitting on the skin. If you’re managing acne, cleansing is essential.

The perfect facial cleansers for acne-prone skin are gentle, non-abrasive and non-comedogenic… on top of being soothing (to reduce inflammation) and gently exfoliating (to clear out potential pore clogs).

The AcnePlus Low pH Calming Cleanser is formulated to deliver all that with a gentle low pH formula and infusion of soothing botanicals (like Corn Mint Oil, 4D Centella and Herbal Fusion Actives).

Your skin might feel a tingly “cleanness” after washing with the AcnePlus Low pH Calming Cleanser. This is because the cleanser contains AHA, BHA and PHA which you might recognise as exfoliators.

These naturally-derived exfoliators are gentle acids. They dissolve any buildup of sebum, dead skin cells and gunk that migh’ve accumulated in the pore over the day. Compared to scrubs, they do a more thorough job whilst being far less abrasive!

…which is why each wash leaves you with that deep clean feeling.

And clear pores 🙂

Step 2: Prep Skin To Absorb Treatment
With AcnePlus Balancing Skin Toner

Toners re-adjust the skin’s pH, returning it to its natural acidic levels. This preps the skin barrier to better receive the acne treatment, serum and all the good stuff that comes next.

Alcohol-free toners are the best candidates for acne-prone skin. So do toners that promise oil control, soothing properties and hyperpigmentation treatment to lighten post-acne spots – which is pretty much what the AcnePlus Balancing Skin Toner accomplishes.

Its key ingredient Niacinamide, or Vitamin B3, controls sebum production and treats the appearance of dark spots, lightening them. The toner is also infused with Y.O.U’s signature Herbal Fusion Actives: Corn Mint Oil, Amur Cork Tree Bark and Witch Hazel which aid in reducing inflammation greatly.

The best way to apply toner is with a cotton pad. Cotton pads deliver toner to your skin evenly and soaks up any excess oil and impurities that have been left behind.

Moisten the cotton pad and dab liberally over your face. Once dry, you can proceed to the next delicious step: Serum Treatment.

Alternatively, you can use a spray bottle mist. It’s quicker, hand-free and super convenient!

Step 3: Boost With A Serum
With AcnePlus Complete Solution Serum

People often skip out on serums, thinking them optional because they seem similar in benefit as moisturisers. This isn’t true. A serum is formulated to be a powerful cocktail of nutrients, hydrators and antioxidants that can be easily absorbed by the skin.

This is why, unlike moisturisers, serums are higher in nutrient concentration and have smaller molecule sizes. This enables it to be more easily absorbed by the pore.

In acne care, serums are a vital step. Acne spot treatments have one small side effect: It dries the skin, leaving it thirsty for moisture. This is totally normal for a target formula that’s meant to suppress the toughest of pimples.

A serum, not a moisturiser, counters the dryness that may occur after a potent spot treatment.

The AcnePlus Complete Solution Serum and its formula of Herbal Fusion Actives treats your skin to a yummy layer of ultra-moisturising hyaluronic acid and soothing Corn Mint Oil and Aloe Vera.

Just a few drops of the silky serum is enough to leave a nourishing layer that will save it from post-treatment dryness.

And if that’s not potent enough, the AcnePlus Complete Solution Serum is fortified with the complete alphabet of Vitamins A, B, C & E – which is a full breakfast platter of acne treatment with revitalising, healing, moisturising and antioxidant properties.

Step 4: Apply Spot Treatment
With AcnePlus Triple Action Spot Care

After all that prep, your skin is now in the best condition to start acne treatment!

Acne gels/balms/creams clean and treat the clogged, infected pore. These are potent formulas that suppress the pimple from becoming bigger and more stubborn.

The AcnePlus Triple Action Spot Care is particularly fast-acting on acne spots and blemishes. BUT it doesn’t just treat acne. It also provides healing aftercare.

This is the reason why AcnePlus users (with acne and oily skin issues) experience visible results in just 7 days.

What makes this spot balm so effective is a combination of 4D Centella, Herbal Fusion Actives and Irriguard® – a patented (and potent) brew of herbal infusions.

Irriguard® is a infusion of 5 types of herbs (Astragalus root, Fang Feng root, Calendula flower, Mimosa flower and Tian Ma root) all chosen for their healing properties in treating inflamed or damaged skin.

Now some people tend to assume that spot treatments act as a full-coverage preventative. That it’s okay to apply the treatment all over their skin (like a serum) to suppress new pimples.

This will result in more redness, unfortunately.  Because on clear skin, acne treatment irritates.

The correct way to use the AcnePlus Triple Action Spot Care is to apply to active acne, on areas where the bumps are fresh. OR on post-acne areas to treat what is left behind.

Using a clean finger or a cotton bud, dab enough to cover the spot and leave to dry before proceeding to the final step… protection.

Step 5: Protect With A Moisturiser
With AcnePlus Skin Defense Moisturizer

Don’t skip this final IMPORTANT step – even if you have oily skin!

Moisturiser is the final line of defense when it comes to acne care and happier, healthier skin. At its most basic, moisturizers protect skin from drying out by holding in moisture at the outermost layer of the skin.

But what it ultimately does is support the skin’s natural barrier by keeping out harmful pollutants. And in the same vein, seals in all the good product stuff underneath too for long-lasting effectiveness.

This is how the AcnePlus Skin Defense Moisturizer complements the rest of the AcnePlus line. Aside from being non-comedogenic (which is great for those with oily skin!), this moisturiser has impressed us with the amount of defensive ingredients used…

  • Niacinamide – Controls sebum production, reduce post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) to achieve an even and healthier skin tone
  • Allantoin – Helps to treat or prevent dry, rough, scaly, itchy and minor skin irritations.
  • Panthenol – A natural substance to soften, soothe, and prevent irritation and water loss.
  • Irriguard® – Enhance skin relieving and repairing process

And best of all, it’s can be applied rather comfortably as it’s non-sticky.

A Final Word To A More Beautiful Y.O.U

Clear skin is a possibility with consistency and attentive products.

We find that a good acne skincare range doesn’t just target spot issues but also provides healing aftercare. We see this in products with soothing properties or ingredients that speed up the healing of existing blemishes.

And most of all, it certainly doesn’t have to be expensive!

With a brand philosophy of “Long Lasting Beauty”,  Y.O.U Beauty provides women with accessible self-care products to help them become the best version of themselves.

Their AcnePlus series is designed to help women accomplish this with a reliable acne care range that’s affordably priced between RM16.90 to RM29.90.

Plus, it’s dermatologically tested and certified alcohol-free, mineral oil-free, synthetic fragrance-free, and artificial coloring-free – which, again, makes it suitable for those of us with oily or sensitive skin.

If you’re a Watsons member, great news. You get an additional 10% off on the series whether you choose to buy in-store or online. Offer available from 30 September to 27 October in West Malaysia and 7 October to 27 October in East Malaysia.
