Acne is a toxic relationship. And you 100% deserve better.
Acne makes you feel unattractive and insecure, causing your mental health to take a serious hit (hands up if you feel me!)
And when you pour half of your paycheque into drugstore products that only seem to keep the acne at bay for a week or two at best, it can start to make you feel like all hope is lost.
But, your suffering has gone on long enough!
Here at The Vancouver Laser and Skin Care Centre, we know how big a difference clear skin can make. So in order to kick your toxic relationship with acne to the curb once and for all, you are going to want to pay close attention to the products I’ve outlined below (and save them in your cart in time for our Black Friday sale)!

Oil Control Pads Acne Treatment by ZO

Exfoliating Cleanser by ZO
This an incredible exfoliating cleanser that gently removes excess oil and pore clogging impurities while hydrating and soothing your skin. This cleanser contains encapsulated Vitamin E to promote hydration and tea tree extract to provide antibacterial and antioxidant protection!
Gentle Cleanser by ZO
ZO’s skin health’s gentle cleanser removes impurities, deep cleans pores, and leaves your skin feeling refreshed and hydrated. This cleanser contains a blend of glycerin, botanical extracts, and oat amino acids.
As opposed to some other cleansers, this one cleanses your skin without drying or irritating it, re-hydrates your skin, and protects you from free radicals!
Dr. Braun Miracle Hydrogel
Like a luxurious drink of water for your skin, Dr. Braun’s miracle hydrogel provides long lasting moisture and repairs the skin barrier. This gel delivers hydration and nutrients deep into the skin which results in a healthier and more radiant looking complexion.
This gel contains hypoallergenic lavender oil as an antimicrobial, which works to soothe and cool irritated skin! How perfect is that!?
SkinCeuticals LHA Cleanser
If your skin is sometimes dry, sometimes oily, and always congested- this product is about to become your new best friend.
The SkinCeuticals LHA gel cleanser gently decongests clogged pores, minimizes blemishes, and brightens the skin by improving overall tone and texture. This cleanser can even help improve visible signs of aging.
Fragrance free and oh so gentle, you’ll love this one. Trust me.
Vivier Acne Treatment Lotion
The Vivier Acne Treatment Lotion is an acne spot treatment that gently dries up existing acne while reducing the P.Acne bacteria in the treated area. This spot treatment is a powerhouse for anyone suffering from breakouts.
This lotion contains 5% Benzoyl Peroxide which works hard to help clear up existing acne and prevent new acne from forming. It is suitable for the face, neck, chest, and back!
SkinCeuticals Silymarin CF
An acne breakthrough in a bottle! This serum from SkinCeuticals is perfect for oily and blemish prone skin.
This serum combines silymarin (milk thistle) extract and salicylic acid to help prevent oil oxidation. Oil oxidation (or sebum oxidation) is when the sebum on the surface of the skin is exposed to air and clogs pores creating tension in the follicle and allowing for an environment where acne causing bacteria can settle in.
Silymarin CF is an oil-free formula that is clinically demonstrated to reduce oil oxidation by 76%, minimize the appearance of pores, refine skin texture, improve skin clarity and radiance, and even out the skin tone. All in all, it is a perfect preventative approach to acne control!
While investing in good quality skin products will help you combat persistent acne, it is also important to follow the 10 healthy skin habits we’ve included below!
BONUS: 10 Healthy Skin Habits!
- DO NOT pick at your face (your hands transfer oil and bacteria!)
- Wash your face in the morning and at night (twice a day!). And NEVER go to bed with make-up on.
- Make sure you are not using the wrong products for your skin type (read product descriptions carefully)
- Always wear sunscreen (yes we do mean every single day – rain or shine)
- DO NOT over exfoliate! (you can use a gentle daily exfoliator! but if you notice any redness or irritation, opt to use every other day instead)
- Make sure you clean your cell phone and pillowcase more often! (these items come in direct contact with your face and can be full of bacteria!)
- DO NOT get hair products on your face (they often contain skin irritants)
- Watch out that you are not overloading your skin with products! (too much of a good thing is really not a good thing)
- Try not to take super hot showers!
- Eat healthy (doesn’t mean you can’t indulge once in a while, but loading up on antioxidant rich foods is a great way to give your skin a boost)
