National Acne Awareness MonthJune is National Acne Awareness Month, so let’s dive into a topic that has continued to plague millions of people worldwide (about 9.5% of the global population, in fact) and has caused frustration for both them, their loved ones (parents, we're talking to you), and even their skincare professionals.
As skincare aficionados, we understand how acne can negatively impact self-esteem and quality of life. But fear not! We're here to shed light (pun very much intended) on an effective solution that can help eliminate acne and transform the lives of those suffering from it. Blue light therapy has emerged as a game-changer in the fight against acne, and we are thrilled to share its incredible benefits with you.
Acne is more than just a few pesky blemishes; it’s an emotional rollercoaster. Those dealing with acne often experience a lack of confidence, embarrassment, and even social anxiety - and we get it. The search for a solution becomes a constant battle, as traditional treatments may not always provide the desired results.
Enter Omnilux Clear — FDA cleared (also TGA approved, CE and MDR certified), it is a non-invasive and innovative treatment that offers a ray of hope for acne sufferers. Our Omnilux Clear device uses 415nm blue light wavelength to target the bacteria responsible for acne, known as Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes). This therapy works by penetrating the skin’s surface and exciting the porphyrins within the bacteria, ultimately destroying them. A key factor in preventing clogged pores, blue light therapy also helps regulate sebum production.
Thanks to the addition of 633nm red light wavelength, Omnilux Clear not only eliminates p. acnes bacteria but also reduces inflammation, redness, and promotes faster healing. It is especially perfect for those who want a natural alternative to harsh topical treatments and complicated skincare routines. Need more proof?

Although LED light therapy is great on its own, it’s important to make complementary lifestyle changes that can enhance the treatment’s efficacy. We always encourage our users to adopt these basic tips:
It's important to use gentle cleansers that won’t strip the skin of its natural oils. Harsh products can disrupt the skin barrier and trigger more breakouts (ugh).
Hydrate inside and out
Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and incorporating moisturizer suitable for your skin type. More often than not, those with acne-prone, oily skin types avoid moisturizing which causes their skin to produce even more sebum and potentially clog pores.
Use acne-friendly makeup
Choose non-comedogenic and oil-free cosmetics to avoid clogging pores. Using a good makeup remover before bed is a must for preventing pore congestion.
Change pillowcases often
Dirt and sweat accumulate on pillowcases, introducing bacteria to the skin. We should all be changing our pillowcases at least twice a week and be using a gentle detergent to avoid irritation.
Do your best to reduce stress, consume less processed foods, sugar, and dairy.
Integrating Omnilux Clear into your routine is a winning strategy in the battle against stubborn breakouts. Backed by peer-reviewed studies and a world-class Scientific Advisory Board, this cutting-edge, natural, and non-invasive treatment will give your skin everything it needs to heal from within, all while being gentle and prescription-free.
While blue light therapy is an effective and holistic solution for treating acne, it’s crucial to know if LED therapy is right for you. We encourage consulting the Clear Assessment before you start.
