How It Works
Mary Kay® Acne System is a multi-faceted approach for the multiple causes of acne.
Acne can happen to anyone, at any time. Formulated with salicylic acid, the Mary Kay® Acne System helps eliminate and helps prevent acne breakouts. Here's how it works:
- It keeps pores from becoming blocked.
As oil is produced it travels up and out through the pores to lubricate the skin. But in acne-prone skin, dead skin cells that would normally slough away collect in pores, trapping oil inside. Salicylic acid removes dead skin cells from the pores, and helps speed cell turnover on the surface of the skin.
- It helps reduce excess oil.

The Mary Kay® Acne System is formulated to help control excess oil and reduce visible
- It lessens irritation associated with blemishes.
As acne blemishes develop, irritation occurs as the skin attempts to heal itself, and this irritation can be intensified by the release of proteins and peptides that signal immune cell to travel to the site of the infection. The Mary Kay Acne System is formulated to help prevent skin irritation associated with blemishes.
