The latest launch from Perricone MD – Introducing Blemish Relief!
Driven by the pursuit of fearless innovation and an uncompromising spirit of excellence, Perricone MD’s newest launch is a comprehensive regimen specifically designed to treat blemish-prone skin: Blemish Relief Prebiotic Blemish Therapy. The (patent pending) science behind the new launch is Perricone MD’s prebiotic approach, a system that feeds your skin’s microbiome – or natural environment.
Using naturally occurring prebiotics, Blemish Relief helps your skin safely and gently fight back against blemishes without disrupting its natural equilibrium. Unlike most other blemish treatment systems on the market, Blemish Relief selectively targets and gently treats all three culprits of blemishes: excess oil, blemish-causing bacteria and inflammation. The regimen has a two step approach – each product in this two-step system offers a unique approach to targeting the root cause of blemishes.
The Blemish Relief 90 Day Regimen
With its simple, two-step approach, the Blemish Relief 90-Day Regimen promotes a visibly healthy, blemish-free complexion.
Blemish Relief Gentle & Soothing Cleanser (Step 1: Day & Night)
This low-foaming formula thoroughly cleanses the skin. It reduces excess oil, unclogs pores, removes dead skin cells and eliminates debris without irritating sensitive, blemish-prone skin. Ultra-fine sucrose supports a healthy surface skin microbiome and rinses off quickly and easily, while squalane hydrates without making skin look or feel greasy.
Blemish Relief Calming Treatment & Hydrator (Step 2: Day)
This lightweight lotion glides onto skin to gently provide support for oily and blemish-prone skin. Lactic and succinic acids support a healthy surface skin microbiome for a clearer, more radiant complexion. Citrulline and squalane fight irritation, nourish, hydrate and soothe.
Blemish Relief Retinol Treatment & Moisturizer (Step 2: Night)
This lightweight yet nourishing formula absorbs instantly to control excess oil and improves the appearance of skin while you sleep without drying the skin. The powerful combination of retinol, citrulline and niacinamide helps to accelerate surface skin exfoliation and renewal, while visibly calming skin and gently erasing imperfections overnight, especially marks that are left by blemishes.
Along with the 90-Day Regimen, Perricone MD have also launched the Blemish Relief Targeted Spot Treatment. This ‘must have’ comes in the form of a maximum strength invisible gel that can be applied one to three times daily. Formulated with salicylic, lactic and succinic acids, citrulline and tea tree oil, this targeted treatment works overtime to improve the look of blemish-prone skin by unclogging pores and absorbing excess oil without over-drying.
