I’m always on the lookout for suitable skincare for my acne-prone skin and I’m so glad to share with you something I’ve been using for the past week that really cleared up my blemishes and scarrings fast. The miracle A-Clear Spot Repairing Serum, Mask and Foam Cleansing Cream are a great addition to my repertoire of skincare products I use. It prevents spots from popping up and I love how different my skin feels in just a week of usage.
This A-Clear series is also a specially targeted line to provide daily care for early stages of acne as well spot care for regularly occurring trouble areas, it includes a systematic 3 step process for different types of acne skin conditions – red spot step, yellow spot step and after pus step. Best suited for those with acne-prone and troubled skin, the range provides immediate “first-stage” acne care along with preventative care. If your skin condition falls on the sensitive and reactive side, I personally feel that this will be handy whenever you need that quick fix to bust those pesky bumps, to unveil a visibly healthier skin.
It’s no secret that following a skincare regime is one of the multiple keys to having good and healthy skin.

About Dr. Ahn Gun Young
Burned by boiling milk as a young boy, the accident left a scar on his face. This incident fuelled his passion to become a dermatologist, so that he is able to create solutions for all skin conditions and types. Under Dr. Ahn’s leadership, Dr.G grew rapidly through word of mouth for “one of the few traditional dermatological cosmetics brands in Korea” and “cosmetics with less skin irritation.” Beyond selling cosmetics, Dr.G’s mission is to help people achieve healthier and more beautiful skin through products backed by skin science.
We were lucky to have been offered an email interview with Dr.G, so this was my question posed:
“What’s your approach in caring and treating acne prone skin and how would you tackle it?”
Answer: We can keep acne at bay by taking preventive and improvement measures. For this, we recommend the “Gak-Bo-Cha” 3-step solution to maintain healthy skin, which comprises of the following:
1. Deep cleansing (”Gak”)
2. Moisturising sufficiently to attain oil and moisture balance care (“Bo”)
3. Sun protection to minimise UV damage to your skin (“Cha”)
Hence, here are some of the products I incorporated in my skincare regime for healthier looking skin:
Suitable for acne-prone skin, the rich foam removes excess sebum, blackheads and whiteheads while Tea Tree and Salicylic Acid ease problems to keep skin
clean. Plant components such as DPG and Sage Extract provides moisture and a calming effect for fresh and smooth skin.
This eases blisters and spot scars and contains micro capsuled Tea Tree and Anti-Bac Peptide to ease spots after pus is removed and highly concentrated Salicylic Acid to reduce pollution from the spot. Apply before the acne comes up to stop the infection, or apply after an acne is formed to quickly calm the spot.
This mask acts as an immediate care for irritated and stressed skin, soothes spots and protects the skin barrier. It also helps to relieve skin problems as it contains Glycolic acid to lightly exfoliate dead skin and Niacinamide with whitening effect to brighten dark skin areas for clear and smooth skin. Suitable for use even for oily skin with heavy sebum excretion.
