Frequently Asked Questions

Help! Why do I keep breaking out?
When you're younger, it's usually oily skin that does you in. For adults, common causes are stress hormones and allergies. No matter what the trigger, the anatomy of a pimple is the same.

What causes acne?
It starts with an accumulation of dead skin cells mixed with excess oil that clogs a pore and cuts off its oxygen supply. Each clogged pore is home to acne-causing agents that love an oxygen-starved environment. The longer a pore is clogged the more these agents multiply, releasing aggravating substances that lead to irritation and infection under the skin—pimples.

How do you fight it?
This is the easy part. You start with gentle exfoliation to open clogged pores. Oxygen evicts acne-causing bacteria. Medicated ingredients rush in to accelerate treatment. Voila!—Clearer skin. The idea is to get immediate breakouts under control, then stop problems before they erupt—with a consistent, daily regimen that's non-irritating.

Does stress cause breakouts?
Sure. The hormones associated with stress can cause an increase in oil production, which then leads to more breakouts. So take a deep breath and try to cope.

Can the wrong moisturizer make you break out?
Absolutely. Using the wrong products for your skin type, or misusing products, can clog pores, which can lead to breakouts—especially in acne-prone skin. To make sure your skin gets the daily essential hydration it needs—without clogging pores—get skin-typed online or at a Clinique counter.

My skin is oily. Do I really need a moisturizer?
Yes. All skins need hydration. Use an oil-free product to help keep pores clear.

What if I have an acne emergency?
Not to worry. After daily care, dab on Emergency Gel-Lotion or Spot Healing Gel. If red, use concealer in your skin tone and finish with Clinique Acne Solutions Makeup . Touch-up as needed.

Will sun protection make me break out?
No. But not using it might. Ever notice how you get more acne after the summer? Sun actually triggers breakouts. Plus, some acne prescriptions make you more sensitive to sunlight. That's why the right sun protection is essential. Think lightweight, oil free. City Block Sheer Oil-Free Daily Face Protector SPF 25 is a great option, or daily moisturizer with SPF specifically for oily skin.
