When it comes to treating acne in the "natural/clean products" world, you typically don't have many options.
The first line of defense is products with tea tree oil. If you're willing to look at conventional acne treatments, you'll have to put up with formulas that dry you TF out and likely worsen inflammation.
But there's a better way! Meet our cult favorite Clear Skin Potion, an acne spot treatment and all-over preventative that won't dry you out.
The Clear Skin Potion features 15% azelaic acid and powerful botanicals to calm inflammation and fight acne-causing bacteria without drying. It's a nontoxic version of dermatologist prescribed Finacea.
Fun fact: Finacea was originally developed for rosacea, characterized by super sensitive skin. If azelaic acid is gentle enough for rosacea, it's gentle enough for your acne!
Even better? Not only does it heal, treat, and prevent acne, but it's a powerhouse for fading dark spots and acne scarring.
Please note: This product is not appropriate for individuals with Celiac Disease. Azelaic acid (active ingredient) is derived from wheat, rye, and barley.
1. After washing your face with a Bright Body Facial Wash and applying the Bright Body Toning Mist, take a pea-sized amount of Clear Skin Potion and apply to the face and neck, avoiding the eye area.
2. Allow one minute to absorb before moisturizing to avoid pilling.

I can’t live with out it. I go 3 days with out it and my acne get very painful
My chin kept breaking out and I had a massive (seriously HUGE) zit along with some regular acne that over the counter creams were just not helping. Big reduction in size and almost completely cleared the acne after one use. After a couple uses, everything cleared up and my complexion looks a lot more even. Before, there was a lot of purple from acne scarring. Genius product.
This is literally the best kept secret in skincare. After 6 months of working remotely, I am now back in public and need to wear a mask all day, every day while talking non-stop. This, as many of us know, is trapping bacteria inside my mask, wreaking havoc on my skin, and causing terrible "maskne." Since using the Clear Skin Potion with the Illuminating Tonic and customized facial/scrub, my skin is back to normal! Since my skin tends to be oily, I often wear the Potion by itself as.a moisturizer. It is soooooo refreshing, and has a great texture and smell!
I’ve been struggling with an outbreak of perioral dermatitis this summer, and I haven’t found much that relieved it until I used this! It only takes a tiny dab to cover my problem areas, and it helps soothe the painful sores. Of course, it also smells incredible- which is nice since I’m putting it all around my nose! I absolutely love this product.
I have been using this for 2 months now for acne and have consistently been impressed with it. It takes care of breakouts and does not dry out my skin at all. Its light and soaks in quickly, is effective, and the smaller container lasts ... well, over two months as I still have about 1/3 left.
