Banishing the Breakouts
When acne wages a war, you arm yourself with the big guns.
I have had relatively calm skin since I committed myself to doing a nightly regimen (my favorite part of the day when I take off all my makeup and slather my face with serums, oils, moisturizers!) not too long ago. But some time a few years back, I also experienced a losing battle against acne that resulted from an oil cleanser experiment gone wrong (ugh! never again with that product!). One cystic breakout led to another and before I knew it, it was a war zone on my cheeks. I tried a lot (that is an understatement) of different acne products but they never really worked in winning against the acne attacker. I found brightening and blemish-banishing products that worked their magic after the onslaught – but in terms of stopping the acne and preventing it from inflicting more damage, I was on the losing end.
It wasn’t until I was prescribed a dermatologist-approved treatment system that pushed my acne battle to slowly but surely put out its white flag. I realized from that experience that while all my favorite skincare serums and moisturizers work hard to keep my skin smooth, radiant and at its best – when an intruder breaks that cycle and wages an acne battle, I have to bring out the big guns. The derma-recommended products with potent, active ingredients. Which brings me to share this very inexpensive yet effective acne treatment kit that helped dry out and halt the minor breakouts I seem to have gotten from my wonky post-pregnancy hormones.
The Belo AcnePro Treatment System
The AcnePro Treatment system products are infused with purified bee venom which is touted to have natural antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties*, making it a combatant for acne. It is clinically proven to treat mild to moderate acne as well as reduce inflammation on the skin. Purified bee venom in skincare isn’t new – it has been a skincare favorite of Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Middleton (she covered her face in bee venom before her wedding!).
To make the most out of this treatment, I suggest trying the 3-step solution to quickly put an end to your acne battle. It’s worth a shot, friends. Plus, it’s only PHP 285 for the whole kit which you can get here (no affiliate link). However, if you have severe acne, I suggest you go see a dermatologist for something more potent. The Belo Essentials AcnePro treatment is milder than most acne-care treatments that viciously dry out your skin.
Belo Essentials AcnePro Pimple Fighting Bar. Infused with purified bee venom, this is a bar soap for both the face and body. I was afraid this would be quite drying on the face but it’s not overly so. What I liked about this is that it stung a bit which made me feel that it was effective and was doing its job! I’ve used this diligently (night and day everyday!) on my back too because of minor bacne and I’m so happy it has dried out the ‘fresh’ zits I had.
Belo Essentials AcnePro Treatment Toner. I like that this toner isn’t your regular toner – it acts as an exfoliant because of its purified bee venom content. I use this all over the face for a mild, daily exfoliation that unclogs pores and removes dead skin cells.
Belo Essentials AcnePro Pimple Gel. The most potent product and something that I recently keep a few tubes of in my vanity for emergency situations. I was recently a bridesmaid for one of my best friends’ weddings – and three days prior, my face decided to wage a war! I had huge zits on the side of my cheek and the bottom of my nostril that were red, angry and flaming! I used the soap and toner, then applied the Belo Essentials AcnePro Pimple Gel day and night on these little tricksters and on the day of the wedding, it was completely flat and dried out enough to be covered by concealer without sticking out. Which is why I bought two more tubes recently to keep in my dresser drawer. I swear by this miracle gel.
The big-day lifesaver! It instantly dried out my zits that would otherwise take weeks to tame down. I love this!
Before and After
For those who have mild to moderate acne, this is an affordable yet effective 3-step acne treatment solution to try. Use the soap, toner and pimple gel for a week and see results instantly. We all have different skin types so this may or may not work as well on you like it has worked for me. Also, please make sure to do a patch test first to make sure your skin isn’t sensitive or allergic to bee venom. For Php 280, this is one of the best value-for-money acne kits to try!
