Perricone MD Skin Clear Diet and Regimen to Treat and Prevent Acne

To effectively treat and prevent acne, be sure to follow an anti-inflammatory diet and topical skin care program. Ingredients like Salicylic Acid and Lactic Acid help clear and prevent clogged pores, for example, and thus, fight acne and prevent future breakouts.

Read on to learn about a proper acne diet and skin care regimen.

Perricone MD Diet for Clear Skin

To avoid triggering breakouts, be sure to avoid pro-inflammatory foods, like fast food, and processed food.

Instead, the Dr Pericone Diet for acne calls for good sources of vitamin A and the plant form of vitamin A, beta-carotene. Vitamin A has been found to help prevent acne breakouts as well as treat acne lesions.

Oily fish, eggs, and milk are great sources of vitamin A, while good sources of beta-carotene include:

  • Dark green, leafy vegetables, e.g. parsley, kale, and spinach
  • Yellow-orange vegetables and fruits, e.g. apricots, carrots, sweet potatoes, and squash

Wash out toxins by drinking 8-10 glasses of pure spring water a day.

For superior results, take Perricone MD Skin Clear Supplements once each morning, formulated with:

  • B-Complex + Vitamin C
  • Evening Primrose Oil
  • Asorbyl Palmitate
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid+DMAE+Chromium+Zinc
  • Omega 3
  • Tocospan Vitamin E
  • Calcium+Magnesium+Vitamin Dl

This supplement program works from the inside out to improve skin’s clarity while providing toning benefits and improving skin’s texture. As an added bonus, Skin Clear Supplements also help support a healthy immune system and provide antioxidant protection.

Perricone MD Skin Clear Regimen

The Perricone MD Skin Clear products are the ideal complement to the anti-inflammatory acne diet.

There are 3 steps to the topical Skin Clear regimen:

  1. Cleanse: Skin Clear Cleanser
  2. Apply Toner: Skin Clear Toner
  3. Moisturize: Skin Clear Hydrator

1. Cleanse: Skin Clear Cleanser

Start fresh by cleansing your skin with Skin Clear cleanser, a deep-cleaning acne cleanser that helps to clear troubled skin by reducing excess sebum and eliminating surface contaminations.

Formulated with:

  • Salicylic acid to unclog pores and clear acne breakouts
  • Eucalyptus oil, which has anti-bacterial properties to combats breakouts, cools and calms inflamed skin
  • Allantoin to help encourage skin renewal
  • Alpha lipoic acid to deliver anti-aging benefits, such as diminishing pore size and lines and wrinkles

This cleanser preps skin for the next step in the Perricone MD Skin Clear regimen.

2. Apply Toner: Skin Clear Toner

Formulated with different concentrations of the same ingredients as the Skin Clear Cleanser, Skin Clear Toner helps to calm inflammation. gently exfoliate skin, and refresh skin without drying it.

Anti-bacterial and anti-microbial, Skin Clear Toner should be applied using a cotton pad to smooth over face, focusing on affected areas, 1-3X daily.

Decrease usage if dryness occurs. Follow with a moisturizer suited for acne to help relieve dryness while treating acne.

3. Moisturize: Skin Clear Hydrator

Skin Clear Hydrator helps make skin appear more soft and clear as it reduces surface debris, regenerates skin cells, and relieves dryness, increasing skin’s natural moisture with Allatoin.

Skin Clear Hydrator is also formulated with:

  • DMAE to re-contour, tighten, lift, and tone skin
  • Lactic acid to sloughs cells from skin surface and prevent clogged pores and dry skin

With the right anti-inflammatory diet and skin care regimen, you can achieve clearer skin for a lifetime.

  1. Lovely idea, but does it work? I am an adult, 34, with nonstop acne since I was 11. I have tried almost everything, but refused Accutane. Nothing completely works. I already consider myself a very healthy eater. Willing to try something that will really heal, not just be a band-aid.

  2. I have had cystic acne since I was 8 yrs old and am now 27 living in Richmond VA I have been on Antibiotics for years and now have decided that I will not use them I am interested in a natural holistic approach and would love to try anything that would help my skin I would review blog do a commercial anything to get clear skin thanks

  3. this sounds like it would be great for my skin have you thought of offering a package of this kit along w/a 30 day supply of the vitamin supplements and the anti inflammatory diet? that would be a great bundle and hopefully a great starting point for great blemish free skin that is natural and holisitc

  4. I have tried EVERYTHING, over the counter, subscription products. You name it! I have been dealing with adult acne since my mid 20′s I am now 31. I would like to try something that WORKS for my acne and the scarring it has left behind.

  5. I am a style/sustainability blogger who has been struggling with adult acne on and off for years. I have yet to find a cleanser and toner that really work for my skin. I would love to try out your Skin Clear Cleanser and Toner, and I would be happy to review it on my blog.

  7. im olso suffer from sévére acné and i buyed skin clear anti acné kit last wesnesday. i hope to have a good result but i’m worry because i went to a dermatologue but without any result …

  8. I am 44 and had uterine cancer Christmas ’09. My doctor took all reproductive organs, as well as some lymph nodes, so I am what you call surgically menopausal. What I have noticed is that I have taken hormonal patches to no avail and I have acne for the first time- On my chest and face- the kind that really hurts with deep sebaceous cysts, not a teenage pimple. Hormones don’t work, so I was looking to supplements to help. I’d run out and try everything, but I am now on a limited income. I used to work a few days P/T at Sephora, was a former Lauder Rep, and am a makeup junkie- I have tried La Prarie and La Mer to Dr. Brandt water supplements, to Oxy Clinical. My Doctor said a combination of Salicylic acid and Benzoyl Peroxide should work, but I think inside out is the best way as attack this problem- and the hormones do not help so I have stopped wearing the patches- I want to know what diet and food changes would work as long as taking vitamin and or herbal supplements. Any good advice would appreciated. And yes I drink water and shower enough. I am turning to you since you are wellness cosmeceutical company. Thank you for your consideration. Mimi- Atlanta GA

  9. I am a 39 year old male and I have suffered with acne for over 20 years. I avoid social activities often, as my skin condition depresses me to no end. I have seen many dermatologists in my life and most have stated diet is not a contributing factor to acne. As an acne sufferer for so many years I know different. I was fortunate enough to see Dr. Perricone briefly in Connecticut many years ago. I have brief periods of clear skin, but then massive outbreaks which can often be cystic. I have been on cycles of antibiotics for nearly 2 decades, and I worry what damage this has done to me internally. Acne has literally ruled my life and causes not only emotional pain, but physical pain as well. As I get older my skin shifts from oily and outbroken to chronically dry and outbroken. I don’t know where else to turn, and could desparately use Dr. Perricone’s help.

  10. I am the writer of a healthy living blog and struggle with adult acne. I would love to try some Perricone products in exchange for a review on my blog.

  11. I have tried Dr. Perricone’s Skin clear cleanser and toner and have seen great results. I would love to try his Skin Clear Vitamins. thank you.

  12. I didn’t know that Perricone made vitamin supplements! Sounds like a great way to heal your skin from the inside out, while using the other products on the outer skin.
