MaxClarity Review

I have suffered from acne since middle school; it went from mild to severe after I turned 13. But since then, I have used every product that you can think of and they either made my acne worse or gave me horrible dry skin, but still I tried. If you have or currently suffer from acne, then you have probably tried everything. I am that person who has tried everything both prescribed and over the counter. I have tried everything from Nature’s Cure, Clean & Clear, Neutrogena, Proactiv, Skin ID, Murad, Olay, and finally Max Clarity. I have to say that I was not particularly impressed with Max Clarity. The ingredients in it made my flare ups even worse. Max Clarity was not the acne medicine for me and I would not recommend it to individuals who have combination skin, like me.

Having combination skin is a nightmare for the individuals who have it. Some days you may wake up with very oily skin and a few breakouts and other days you may wake up with very dry peeling skin with some flare ups. With combination skin you will never know what to expect; however, you must always be prepared for whatever you skin throws at you. You must have an acne system that will work for you, whether you have oily skin, dry skin, or both combined. Not all acne systems are appropriate for every skin type, so it is very important to try them out and choose the right one for your skin. I have tried everything out there and settled on one system that is great for my skin (Zeno). Using Max Clarity was my second to last resort and it did nothing to help with my breakouts, instead they got even worse. I used the Max Clarity system for about 2 weeks with no results except for the dry skin to the point where it was peeling off and very red and even bleeding in some spots. It felt as if I had gotten sunburned, and I am African American and do not burn in the sun. With that said, here is some information regarding Max Clarity.

What is Max Clarity?

Max Clarity is an acne system that uses an ingredient called Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid to fight bacteria that causes acne. Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid are the two main ingredients in the system.

Like I stated above, everyone’s skin is different and different acne products will affect each person differently. I personally have had a horrible experience with Max Clarity which I tried only once and it made my flare-ups even worse. The chemicals in this system were a bit too much for my skin type.

About Tricia M

I know about acne because I have suffered from it since I was a teenager. Acne made people ridicule me and practically ruined my life. I have tried just about every single acne medication out there. From Clean&Clear, to Neutrogina, to Strident, to Skin ID, to Murad, to Proactiv. I also tried eating healthier and washing my face three times a day, which only irritated it more and produced more acne. My dermatologist finally put me on some birth control to try and clear it. It worked and I only get a few break outs here and there. I usually treat it with some baking soda and olive oil. Fighting acne can become a losing battle, especially for those who do not know all the different types of remedies are available. There are a number of different acne medications formulated today for people who have acne. The names will vary by brand, effects, and ingredients. Everyone will know what is right for them when they try the different products. For more severe conditions, contacting a dermatoligist is very highly recommended.
