Look for non-comedogenic products
Remember all the Manuka Doctor ApiClear products are certified as non-comedogenic meaning that they do not contain ingredients that are known to clog up the pores, which can increase the chances of acne formation. Always look for this when choosing your skin care products.
What’s the Buzz on Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid is a breakthrough skincare ingredient suitable for all skin types but is particularly beneficial for mature skin or those in need of its moisturising benefits.
Widely known for its highly beneficial properties, Hyaluronic Acid is capable of trapping in moisture, which is essential for younger looking, radiant and glowing skin. It also soothes the skin and can offer protection from free radicals.
Manuka Doctor includes this mild and naturally occurring active in the form of Sodium Hyaluronate to many of our products including the ApiClear Blemish Cream, Skin Treatment Serum, Purifying Facial Toner, Purifying Facial Peel and the ApiNourish Rejuvenating Face Mask. This is why our ApiClear products are effective and gentle at the same time.

10 steps to fresh skin
As well as using products that are gentle and effective, a few simply steps can help change your skin naturally, for good!
It is essential to cleanse the skin to remove away makeup, dirt and excess oil. Our ApiClear Foaming Cleanser reveals clearer skin that is free from the daily build-up of impurities and makeup.
Tip - never forget to remove your makeup before bed, this will definitely help prevent blocked pores. If you know you are having a late night, get the products out ready before you go out.
Tip – Indulge once or twice per week in a deep cleansing mask with our celebrity favourite ApiClear Purifying Facial Peel. This will exfoliate and help reduce blackheads to reveal a radiant, plumped and silky soft complexion.
Continue the 3 step skincare regime with the ApiClear Facial Toner, to help close pores and return skins natural pH balance. A toner will also remove any remaining cleansing products or purifying peel from your skin.
The ApiClear Moisturising Lotion with Purified Bee Venom instantly refreshes skin and enhances the complexion's natural glow, whilst maintaining an optimal balance of oil and moisture. It has been developed specifically for blemish prone skin so is light and non-greasy.
4. DRINK LOTS OF WATER
It is recommended that 8 glasses of water are consumed a day to keep the body hydrated. Hydrate = feel great
Tip - try our Fusion of Manuka Honey and Matcha Tea to keep up the fluids intake.
5. CLEAN AS A WHISTLE
Tip - Sanitize your phone regularly! Remember your mobile phone is often very close to your face and is likely to be covered in a whole host of bacteria from your hands! It’s obvious but do wash your hands regularly and avoid taking your phone with you whilst visiting the restroom! Ew!
6. EAT WELL
A consistent and healthy diet is the easiest way to fabulous skin. As well as eating your 5 a day, foods with Vitamin C such as broccoli, oranges, sweet potatoes can help keep your skin looking and feeling great. Manuka Honey can also be great as a natural alternative to refined sugar and can be used in smoothies and in green tea.
7. MODERATE BAD HABITS
Excessive smoking and consumption of alcohol and processed foods can lead to breakouts! Hormones and food allergies can also contribute to blemishes so if you are worried about this, speak to your GP.
Promote overall health and get your blood flowing, you’ll soon notice a glowing complexion.
Tip - Always cleanse your face straight after exercise to prevent clogged pores.
9. RESIST THE URGE TO SQUEEZE SPOTS
Spots will naturally work their way out of the skin's pores. Squeezing can not only lead to inflammation and scarring but can cause more spots due to the transferring of bacteria from your hands to your face!
Tip - If you sense a breakout appearing pop on some of our best-selling ApiClear Blemish Cream containing propolis, one of the most popular ingredients for reducing spots & blemishes.
You will always see the benefits in your skin from a good nights’ sleep.
Tip - change your pillowcase to 100% silk or cotton and wash at least weekly for fresh skin.
Tip - wash your hair frequently and keep your fringe clipped away off your forehead whenever possible.
Tip - sleep with your hair in a braid to prevent overheating and oil transfer.
