However, PCA Skin Ance Gel is formulated with 3 key ingredients to clear your complexion while controlling the oil production in your sebum glands. Furthermore, the Acne Gel also delivers nutrients through an OmniSome system that stabilises salicylic acid for deeper and longer penetration.

Expertly clear existing breakouts and blemishes, while preventing future breakouts with the PCA Acne Gel.

How Does Acne Gel Work?

Formulated with 2% salicylic acid, the Acne Gel from PCA Skin decongests pores and gradually shrinks active blemishes.

Furthermore, oil-controlling ingredients like mandelic acid clear the skin to prevent build-ups of spot-causing bacteria. Resultantly, this helps unclog pores and stops the overproduction of oil for clearer skin.

Added hexylresorcinol and ethyl linoleate are both powerful compounds that control and balance the skin tone after excessive acne breakouts.

In addition, Acne Gel also improves the appearance of post-acne pigmentation. This light serum delivers results without drying out or sensitising the skin.

The PCA Skin Acne Gel is great for use on the full-face or as a more targeted treatment.

For best results, apply PCA Skin Acne Gel twice daily. Use once in the morning and again in the evening.

What causes acne on the face?

Acne develops when sebum (which is a lubricating oily substance) and dead skin cells clog hair follicles. This causes clogged pores and breakouts. As well as this, bacteria can also trigger inflammation and infection which can cause more severe acne. The PCA Skin Acne Gel works to effectively combat this.

Key Ingredients:

Salicylic Acid, (2%): This dissolves the skin debris that clogs pores and causes acne. It is delivered by an Omnisome, which helps unclog the pores over a 10-hour period. This leaves the skin feeling less irritated and with a clearer complexion.

Hexylresorcinol and Ethyl Linoleate: These skin-brightening compounds help restore an even skin tone and remove skin discolouration. This is a powerful combination that also has anti-inflammatory properties to relieve the effects of acne.

Mandelic Acid: This powerful anti-aging acid helps reduce oil production by gently exfoliating the skin and unclogging the pores. Less oil production in the skin will lead to fewer acne breakouts, making the acid a key ingredient for oily skin.
