According to the Canadian Dermatology Association, acne affects over 20% of adults between the ages of 20 and 40. When you’re searching for natural skincare products to help clear up acne, there is no one magic solution that will forever clear up your acne, but we are confident that using glacial oceanic clay as part of your skincare routine can help.
Why are we so certain? At NENA, we are experts in glacial oceanic clay. We are dedicated to creating skincare that works to address your concerns, so we’ve taken the time to invest in research and studies to prove the natural benefits of glacial oceanic clay.
For example, we’ve had our glacial oceanic clay tested by a third-party lab in Canada, to verify the quality of our clay and these are the proven findings:
- Our clay produced a significant average reduction of 95% in skin surface sebum after application of Glacial Oceanic Clay on face.
Glacial Oceanic Clay has an immediate effect in reducing the appearance of pores, particularly dilated pores.
Research studies also show that:
- Glacial clay contains soothing and anti-inflammatory properties.
- It increases collagen production by 70%. It has anti-aging benefits.
"I genuinely noticed a difference in my skin’s texture and pore size after the first application. I followed up the mask with their moisturizing cream which was lightweight, absorbed quickly, and left my skin feeling smooth and hydrated.” - @LauralHartman (via Instagram)
If that’s not reason enough for you to try us out, what about reading these reviews from real customers who can testify that NENA Skincare is a tried, tested, and true solution for acne? With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we’ve compiled some of the most heartfelt reviews from our customers on how our natural NENA products have cleared up their acne and changed their skin.
Here’s what our customers had to say after trying NENA Glacial Skincare for their acne concerns:
“I so wish I had found this product earlier for my acne prone skin. It's very gentle, calming and non drying. It works great in combination with the Clay Mask. I noticed results within a few days of use. My skin is very thankful and so am I!” - Samira via Amazon on NENA’s Cleansing Cream (July 18, 2019)
“All my life I struggled with acne. I purchased so many products to try and clear it up and my skincare routine was getting out of control and expensive and not making a difference. It was so frustrating. I finally ended up researching products on EWG's site and cross referencing them with a skincare database that shows which ingredients will cause acne. It's surprising how many products marketed for skin are actually not that great for you. This was one of the few brands that had a low rating on EWG and also did not contain any breakout-causing ingredients.” - Snippy via Amazon (June 9, 2019)
“This moisturizer is light-weight, goes on smooth, absorbs well and doesn't break me out. I love this stuff!” - Claire G via Amazon on NENA’s Moisturizer (July 24, 2019)
“I have used Nena skincare line for a week and a half now. I have had troubled skin for years, trying many different skincare lines, with no luck. in three days of using Nena skin care, my skin and issues began to heal. my skin has never been this healthy and happy!!” - Coral T. via Facebook
Glacial Clay has natural detoxifying properties that draw impurities out as the mask dries. We love getting the gunk out of your pores:
“Gentle, but cleansing. Loved what this did to empty my pores. I had my sister with psoriasis try it and she’s obsessed!” - Denise M (via Amazon)
“I can’t say enough about this kit - I have acne prone skin, and trouble with blackheads on my chin and nose. After three days and one mask my skin is glowing - I have even been complimented on it. Canadian made, vegan, perfect, seems like a dream come true for the price. Thanks NENA!” - Angelin G (via nenaskincare.com)
Spot treatment for acne with glacial clay is totally fine too:
Was struggling with post-pill acne. I wasn't using any products just water to rinse my face. I use this as a spot treatment on my back and my face.absolutely amazing! It brings down the swelling on my acne and has helped clear up breakouts all over my back and on my face! - @Reads4Fun via Amazon
“I target my oily and enlarged pore covered cheeks for a clay detox” - @ajthetechnologist (via Instagram)
