So, let’s talk about two topics near and dear to our hearts (and skin): pores and acne. While this may come as a bit of a surprise to some, they are actually very closely related. 

How? Pores, when not kept clear, can inevitably result in acne. So, the less opportunity they have to get clogged with things like dead skin cells, sebum and impurities, the less likely you are to experience those ever-annoying blackheads and blemishes! Crazy, right? 

No matter what type of acne you may be dealing with whiteheads, pustules/papules, hormonal, cystic, etc. pore care will always need to be taken into account. Keeping pores clear can be as simple as incorporating the following into your routine:

Salicylic Acid 

  • This decongesting Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA)  penetrates deep into pores to break apart all that gunk causing congestion in the first place. As an added bonus, salicylic is naturally skin-soothing to calm down those extra-irritable breakouts
    • Fun facts: It’s an oil-soluble acid meaning it can REALLY get deep into skin to get the job done
    • Its anti-inflammatory properties come from the fact that it’s close in chemical relationship to acetylsalicylic acid aka aspirin
Hydrocolloid Dressing
  • In our case, our patent-pending Hydrocolloid Polymer Technology absorbs excess oil and impurities rather than just tearing them away temporarily (ouch). Hydrocolloid also acts as a protective barrier from external irritants allowing for optimum healing
    • Fun facts: It’s often used in the medical world for wound healing - yes, it’s THAT effective.

    That’s not to say those are the only game-changers though - we’re all about the preventative and post-treatment maintenance as well. Ingredients like Vitamin A and DMAE will help keep those pores looking less visible and future-breakouts at bay. Clear pores and clear skin? What more could you ask for?

    Peace Out Acne Dots and Peace Out Pores were the first two products created by Enrico when launching the brand, and to this day, they remain our bestsellers and most loved products.

    He knew that acne care and pore care go hand-in-hand together, because where there is a clogged pore, there is acne that will likely follow along with it. 

    And now, these first two products we ever launched - the ones that made Peace Out a household skincare name - are together in one kit! 

    Peace Out Pores are our 2-in-1 nose and pore strips that contain absorptive hydrocolloid polymer technology to lift away dirt, excess sebum, and dead skin cells. Once all the oil and impurities have been absorbed into the strips, Vitamin A refines skin texture and minimizes the chance of build-up forming again. 

    Peace Out Acne Dots are the ultimate healer and the only true acne healing dot out there. We infused our hydrocolloid patches with anti-acne ingredients so that blemishes receive all the benefits of an active treatment while also being protected from outside irritants and aggressors.
