What is the different between the Murad Time Release Acne cleanser and Clarifying cleanser?

The Clarifying Cleanser is best for those with oily skin and acne. The Time Release Cleanser is appropriate for those with drier skin. So, depending on what your skin type is would determine what would work best for you.

Will the Clarifying Toner remove any of the time releasing capsules if I tone after cleansing my face with the Time Release Cleanser in the anti-aging acne line?


No, if rinsing does not remove the encapsulated Salicylic Acid, toner certainly does not remove it. It travels deeply into the pores.

More information about Time Release with encapsulated Salicylic Acid:
Multi-layered encapsulation system designed to provide a slow and extended release of Salicylic Acid alleviating the problems of skin sensitivity. This technology involves double layer encapsulation. Salicylic Acid is encapsulated in sub-micronspheres that are then encapsulated in microspheres. Upon application, the larger primary microsphere breaks and releases free Sal Acid as well as sal acid encapsulated in sub-micron spheres. The submicon spheres are integrated within the top layer of the skin (and “stick” to the skin due to their charged coating). After they stick, the SA will slowly diffuse out of the sphere. The SA will release faster if there is inflammation (Acne, redness) because there is a high level of enzyme (lipase) that can breakdown the spheres. Controlled, slow, diffusion of Salicylic Acid results in reduced skin irritation, and prolonged product effectiveness.

How to Treat Your T-Zone

All of us have skin types that can be put into different categories. The right kind of acne treatment regimen means knowing whether you have oily, dry, sensitive, normal, or combination skin. Most of us have combination skin, meaning trying to find the right kind of acne treatment regimen can be a hassle. Why is that? Well, it all comes down to the T-zone, where most of the oil on the face is made, which can make treating combination skin tricky. After all, your face is the first thing people see, so it has to look good! But knowing what the T-zone is and what skin care products to use to treat it can make all the difference.


What is the T-Zone?

Underneath the skin on your face are glands that produce sebum (oil) naturally. If you draw a “T” on your face that includes your forehead, nose, upper lip, and chin, you’re highlighting areas where excess oil is made by your glands. Notice that these areas tend to get more acne than other areas on your face? That is your T-zone. People with oily and combination skin are already familiar with the excess oil and the acne it causes. That’s why it’s key to find your own unique acne treatment regimen to keep your skin looking fresh.

Acne Treatment for Your T-Zone

What makes finding the right acne treatment for the T-zone difficult is treating the areas where acne is happening. Too much and your entire face will dry out, which makes it just as easy for acne to appear as it does on oily skin. A great cleanser like Murad’s Clarifying Cleanser contains Encapsulated Salicylic Acid that treats acne even after you cleanse, as well as Green Tea Extract and Menthol that calm irritated skin. Murad Clarifying Toner eliminates excess oil and contains Witch Hazel to tighten pores without drying them out. The Acne Complex Booster Kit includes a Clarifying Mask that uses rare earth clays designed to draw out and absorb impurities from the skin so your face will look glowing and clear.


Hydrate from the Inside Out

While using an effective acne treatment plan will keep your skin looking clear and fresh, making sure you are staying healthy is also key to great skin. Make sure that you are drinking plenty of water (no matter the time of year!) as well as “eating” your water with plenty of fruits and vegetables. Cut down on bad foods, as well sugary drinks like sodas and sport drinks, and your skin will see a big difference! Hydrated skin will mean less breakouts down the line.

While the T-zone is a major target for breakouts, it can still be treatable with the right kind of acne treatment plan. The right combination of hydration inside and out will show the world a fresh, clear face.
