Banish Breakouts and Blackheads

Clear skin is a number one priority for much of the population. Breakouts can occur at any age, but they are most common in teens, young adults and women due to hormonal changes. While relief is often promised by acne treatments and medications on the market, many people are unsatisfied with the results.

Here at John and Ginger we have professional skin therapists, which means we have the expertise and ability to help our clients live their best lives in their healthiest looking skin. Designed especially for breakout prone skin, Clear Start combines potent, break out fighting ingredients with gentle, soothing botanicals to leave skin clear and comfortable - not inflamed or irritated.

Introducing 2 New Ways to Banish Breakouts and Blackheads

New! Breakout Clearing Booster

Kills breakout-causing bacteria in ONLY 15 minutes.

Why you need it

Works as either a spot treatment or an all over face and body breakout prevention treatment, for breakout prone skin.

What is it?

A fast acting, lightweight formula that helps clear pores and kills breakout causing bacteria for rapid skin clearing.

Key Benefits:

  • Helps boost the skin’s natural defences against breakout causing bacteria.
  • Soothes breakout irritated skin.
  • Unclogs pores.


Morning and/or night, apply a small amount directly to blemish or breakout area, or apply a thin layer all over the face after toner and under moisturiser for breakout prevention.

New! Blackhead Clearing Fizz Mask

Targets blackheads before they turn into breakouts.

Why you need it

Helps soften and clear blackheads on breakout prone skin, before they get worse.

What is it?

A unique mask that transforms into an active fizzing formula to clear pores and target blackheads.

Key Benefits:

  • Unique fizzing formula helps to open pores and decongest skin.
  • Facilitates blackhead clearing.
  • Hydrates skin and helps control excess oil.


Apply a thin layer to cleansed skin on areas of congestion, and allow 3-5 minutes to fully activate. Rinse thoroughly with warm water, and follow with your recommended clear start products. Use 2-3 times per week or as needed.

The anatomy of a Breakout

Blackheads are open comedones that turn black NOT because of dirt but because the oil, dead skin cells and bacteria inside the follicle mix and oxidise, like and apple that has been sliced open. This means the follicle is open and still receives oxygen. Some blackheads resolve themselves, or are easily extracted. Others linger and can grow into more severe forms of acne, if they become infected or inflamed.

Whiteheads are closed comedones that occur just like blackheads but don’t oxidise. These usually go away on their own but can also grow into more severe forms of acne if they become infected or inflamed.

Milia happen when dead skin cells and/ or sebum become trapped by skin that grows over them. You may recognise Milia as tiny, hard white bumps that cannot be extracted. Milia are often mischaracterised as acne, when in fact they are benign cysts.

Blackheads can turn into breakouts.

Blackhead Clearing Fizz Mask helps decongest pores so breakouts won’t have a chance to grow.

Blackheads, whiteheads and milia are all non-inflammatory, meaning there is no redness or inflammation present. When redness or inflammation is present, the client has a higher-grade form of acne.

Papules are red, raised bumps that occur after a closed follicle is deprived of too much oxygen. The more p. acnes multiply and consume sebum, the bigger the follicle swells into a papule.

Pustules are pus filled bumps that occur when an infection is present in the follicle. This happens when the follicle swells too much with excessive skin cells sebum and bacteria, causing the follicle wall to rupture beneath the skin.

Everyone Has P. Acnes On Their Skin.

Breakout Clearing Booster helps boost the skins own natural defences to keep breakouts away.

STOP Breakouts in their tracks.
