Clarifying Primer | Clarifying Lotion employs naturally renewing and antibacterial botanicals to aid recovery and prevention of acne-prone skin. Clari-Prime is not a significant moisturizer, which may be particularly helpful for oily skin, but may be supplemented with a water-based hydrator or any other moisturizer that is individually suited. (Uncomfortably dry skin is not a healthy or effective solution for acne.)
Directions for use: Use once or twice daily as needed, after serums and before sunscreen or makeup. Clari-Prime has an oil mitigating effect that can require additional moisturizers in users with drier skin. If using in conjunction with a cream or oil-based moisturizer, order of application is dependent on user preference. Applying Clari-Prime last contributes to a priming esthetic that reduces shine or oiliness for a more matte finish, while earlier application may concentrate treatment effects.
