Introducing Clearskin Professional Acne Treatment System from Avon

Clear is In ... It's as Easy as 1-2-3

Aug 1, 2008

In the United States, it is estimated that 17 million people suffer from acne.  In fact, acne and blemishes are the number one concern among women 15-39 years of age.  For millions of women, breaking the acne cycle is the key to their confidence and happiness. Now, Avon has developed Clearskin Professional Acne Treatment System, which helps prevent, treat and control acne in three easy steps. Skin is clearer in just three days.

Clearskin Professional is a skincare regimen containing proven ingredients to fight all stages of the acne cycle—before, during, and after a breakout.   The Clearskin Professional regimen combines an Avon exclusive blend of three key ingredients:

  • Zinc Hexapeptide-11—Exclusive to Avon, designed to help restore the balance of sebum in oily-prone skin.
  • Salicylic Acid — OTC Acne active treatment - Clears acne blemishes, reduces the number of acne blemishes, and helps prevent the development of new acne blemishes.
  • Glycolic Acid— A skin re-texturizer.

It’s as easy as 1-2-3. To achieve refreshed, healthy-looking skin, follow the Clearskin Professional three-step regimen day and night in the following order:

  • Step 1: Deep Pore Cleansing Scrub - This exfoliating cleanser does double duty to help stop acne before it starts. The exclusive formula exfoliates to reveal fresher, brighter skin and quickly dissolves pore-clogging dirt and oil for a shine free finish. The cleanser cools on contact for a refreshing cleansing experience.


  • Step 2: Clarifying Toner Pads -These specially formulated pads calm and soothe skin with wheat germ extract and tone and re-texturize skin in just one step.  After just one use, skin instantly looks and feels smoother.


  • Step 3: Daily Correcting Lotion - This oil-free daily treatment lotion contains Salicylic acid to clear up acne blemishes. Imperfections are reduced overtime, giving skin a healthier, more even appearance. 

Clearskin Professional Acne Treatment System is the solution millions of women have been waiting for to help prevent and control acne through continual daily use of this powerful regimen.

Clearskin Professional Acne Treatment System ($34.00) will be available beginning in August 2008. With over 650,000 AVON Representatives nationwide, it’s easier than ever to shop for AVON products. To find a Representative, call 1-800-FOR-AVON, or visit us online at
