Tools of the Trade: Acne

Written by  


Trendsetters give insight on the tools they recommend
for treating acneic skin.


Bio France Lab Co-Founder

Marc Rosengarten

Intense Facial Serum Acne Prone & Oily Skin is mattifying with a moisturizing sensation, while reducing the sebum secretion. Its cocktail of more than 10 active compounds will act on all aspects of acne while balancing the skin pH and sensitivity. Zinc PCA regulates the production of sebum. The combination of azelaic acid, licorice root, and allantoin lighten skin, eliminate clogged pores, and reduce inflammation. Niacinamide strengthens the outer layer of the skin, strengthening cellular bonds, tightening the skin, and preventing acne breakouts. Gold, copper, and silver peptides reduce inflammation with antibacterial and anti-aging effects.”

Patricia Boland

“Redness and discomfort are everyday challenges for anyone suffering with acne.All Calm™ Clinical Redness Correctoris a 3-in-1 treatment that works to neutralize the appearance of redness and helps soothe and calm sensitivity – both immediately and long-term. Its BioSolace™ Complex contains ingredients chosen to relieve symptoms of acne-prone skin. This includes niacinamide, which soothes sensitivity, reduces the appearance of redness, and balances sebum production. With 100 percent mineral sunscreen, All Calm provides SPF 50 protection from ultraviolet rays that trigger redness and sensitivity.” 

Dermalife USA Enterprises, Inc. President

Alexander Gonzalez

“Let’s face it, acne is a confidence stealer. But there’s no need to suffer. We’ve scoured the market and found the best choice: Veluderm. Veluderm contains hyaluronic acid cube 3, a mix of gingko biloba, panthenol, acids complex, and other ingredients which are most effective in stopping breakouts, reducing inflammation, and returning skin’s balance. Most importantly, confidence is restored. Veluderm is so effective, I use it for all of my acne cases.”

Equibal Labs Owner and President

Normajean Fusco

“Washing your face properly helps to correct skin issues and delivers longer-lasting results. Cleansing, toning, and nourishing can give you beautiful, blemish-free skin if you follow a daily routine and use natural, gentle products that are scientifically-formulated to work together. I love the Blemfree™ Primary System because it was created to attack and eliminate blemishes on every level, regardless of skin type.”

Face Reality, Inc. CEO

David Valenzuela

My first choice for acne flare ups is Face Reality’s 8% Mandelic Serum. The Chiral versions of L-Mandelic acid and L-Lactic acid in the product help calm post inflammatory pigmentation and reduce the amount of breakouts. It has evened out my complexion and brightened my skin tone. This serum is also my go-to when I have an ingrown hair.” 


GlyMed Plus Business Coordinator

Kadi Horrocks, L.M.E.

“I’ve suffered from acne since my preteens. Having oily, sensitive skin I struggled finding a product that wasn’t too harsh, yet still effective. GlyMed Plus’s Serious Action Skin Wash is the only acne wash I trust. I’ve used so many different acne products, yep, tried them all! I’ve never gotten the results I do with GlyMed Plus. I still use this wash to keep my acne and oily skin under control. I’ll never go back because this product works!”

 Jenetiqa Skin Care Co-Founder and CEO

Christiane Waldron

Lift Maestro Botanical Peel is an amazing light peel formulated with salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and papaya enzyme to help improve acne, reduce redness, and reveal an incredible complexion. This amazing peel is our best-selling professional product because our aestheticians simply love its versatility! This formula is also highly effective in reducing dark spots and improving complexion.”

 Osmosis Skincare CEO and Founder

Ben Johnson, M.D.

Skin Perfection Harmonized Water is an incredible scientific development for acne. A 54 patient, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial showed it cleared acne by 61 percent in four weeks by only ingesting this acne supplement. No matter what strategy you offer for acne, everyone deserves this internal detox as a part of the protocol because it makes every result better. It is simply the most powerful and proven acne internal available.”

 Pure Spa Lead Medical Aesthetician

 Dana Linn-Greenhalgh

 “I love the GR8/SKN Nighttime treatment RESET. It is the perfect way to introduce vitamin A to the younger adult without over-drying the skin, while also providing a first step in anti-aging. It has both retinyl propionate and retinol to help with compromised skin and acne issues, as well as vitamin C and probiotics to strengthen and nurture the skin. It is strong enough to address some of the toughest skin issues but gentle enough to use every day!”

 Rhonda Allison Cosmeceuticals Founder and CEO

 Rhonda Allison

 “There are three keys to restoring acneic skin to optimal health. This is why I love our Acne Management System. It manages bacteria and inflammation; provides gentle, yet necessary, exfoliation; and zeroes in on wound repair. This win-win system rids the skin of acne; prevents scarring, redness, and demarcation; and brings the skin to optimum skin health.”

WildBloom Skincare CEO and Founder

Heather Anderson, L.E.

“WildBloom Skincare's Purifying Sea Salt Face Tonic is a can’t-live-without product for oily, acne-prone skin! This aromatherapeutic face mist combines a blend of alpha and beta hydroxy acids with detoxifying sea salt and super-toning DMAE to balance pH, stabilize oil production, heal blemishes, and tighten large pores. Formulated with pure essential oils, like bergamot and geranium, this vegan tonic has a fresh, herbaceous scent that is truly intoxicating. Treatment hack: use this tonic in facial treatments post-extraction; clients will be hooked!”

Vivant Skin Care Account Specialist

Maryanne Goodman, L.E.

“I’ve suffered from cystic acne since I was a teenager. After prescription medications stopped working, I almost gave up on my skin. Luckily, I ended up working at Vivant Skin Care and discovered Mandelic Acid 3-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser, formulated by Dr. James Fulton, co-developer of Retin-A. This amazing antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral exfoliating cleanser also lightens the skin and promotes collagen production. Safe on all skin tones and types, Mandelic Acid Exfoliating Cleanser is also safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women.”
