The Clarol products have improved my acne but my skin is very dry and flaky, is this normal?

Drier skin is quite common during the initial healing process. The key is to notice if your acne, inflammation and underlying redness have reduced.

Often during the acne healing process as the inflammation dies down the skin can become quite dry.

So if you have bought the whole Clarol range, we recommend that you use Clarol Silver Serum and Clarol Sebopure twice daily to address the dryness.

However reduce the use of the Silver & Birch Wash to once a day, preferably in the evening only. 

This dryness should be temporary and improve in a few weeks.

Also please make sure you are not using any make up removers or anti bacterial products at the same time as the Clarol products as this can negate their effects ad contribute to skin dryness.

For make up removal we suggest using either a natural cleansing oil (rosehip or squaline are good as they are very light non greasy oils). Or we recommend our own Kalme Cream Cleanser from our Kalme skincare range. 

The Kalme Cream Cleanser removes all make up and is a water-free cleanser that contains no chemicals or detergents and is highly moisturising for the skin and suitable for use on very sensitive skin.

The key is to use a product to remove make up with no detergents in it as these will contribute and may even be the cause of the dryness.  

But if your skin is still feeling dry and you want to use additional moisturiser we'd recommend that you add Kalme Undercoat to your daily skincare regime to address the dryness.

The Kalme Undercoat is designed to combat dryness and also reduce skin sensitivity. Its an extra layer of light moisturisation that users with sensitive skin that is in the process of healing can add to their daily Clarol skincare routine if their skin becomes very dry during the healing process. The Kalme Undercoat does not contain any chemicals, perfumes or detergents so will not interfere with the Clarol products or aggravate sensitive skin.

How do I use Undercoat with my other Clarol products?

You should apply the Undercoat twice daily (am and pm) after exfoliating and applying either/both Clarol Silver Serum and/or Clarol Sebopure but before you use any other products.
