Not All Acne is Created Equal

OK ladies - get into formation.  We’re about to give you the best advice on how to break-up with your pesky breakouts. Newsflash: not all pimples deserve the same treatment. I know - shocking right? So many brands, prescriptions and infomercials claim to have the ultimate emergency fix for your acne - yet none of them dare ask what type of acne YOU are actually dealing with.

Here at Peace Out we are all about providing 1-step solutions for your skin concerns. We have two products available now exclusively at Sephora U.S. in-stores and online: Peace Out Acne and Peace Out Pores. Peace Out Acne is a breakthrough blemish-healing dot that combines hydrocolloid technology with active anti-acne ingredients to minimize breakouts overnight, and Peace Out Pores is a set of oil-absorbing strips infused with pore-refining actives that minimize the appearance of enlarged pores and prevent future breakouts. We’re going to walk you through some of the most common types of acne, and identify which product would work best for each type. Let’s get started!

Hormonal Acne

These tend to be those painful pimples that pop up around our chin and neck area - and that’s because our reproductive system is directly tied to this portion of our face. Definitely try our Peace Out Acne stickers to spot treat pimples that are arising or already giving you grief. To help prevent breakouts - stick a pore strip on your chin area. The powerful antioxidants of vitamin A and DMAE will help prevent new hormonal breakouts from forming. You can’t go wrong by using both products for this type of acne!

Whiteheads & Blackheads

We all know these pests - I think it’s safe to say EVERYONE has at least one of these types of breakouts on their nose or chin area. For this type of acne we definitely suggest doubling down with a box of our Peace Out Pores strips as a treatment 1-2x a week. Each box comes with 4 blackhead strips for your nose and 4 pore strips for your cheeks, forehead, chin, etc. Get creative and cut up the pore strips with a pair of scissors, using them to spot treat wherever you need a quick fix.


These are red zits that don’t come to a head, but travel in cliques and come in patches of 3 or 4. We suggest spot treating ASAP and using 2-4 dots on your problem-area - basically as many as you need to ensure each pimple is covered by a dot.

Cystic Acne

Everyone who has cystic acne knows what cystic acne is - mostly likely because you’ve struggled with it for years. They are those abnormally large and inflamed pimples that usually appear in or around the same area that can feel hard and cyst-like under the skin. These mighty pimple lumps are fighters and need to be treated with salicylic acid, which can be found in our Peace Out Acne dots. We suggest zapping that zit by using a 1 sticker each day consecutively for 3-4 days. This will also help block additional bacteria from aggravating the skin even more.


These are red pimples filled with white or yellow liquid, and are caused by bacteria. We definitely suggest spot treating with Peace Out Acne, but if you’re getting pustules it’s a sign that you definitely need a skin detox ASAP. To give your pores the deep clean they really need, definitely use Peace Out Pores once the blemish has healed to avoid a breakout in this area again soon.
