A combination of pure Retinol, Vitamins C & E, and naturally-derived phytonutrients nourish, clear and restore a healthy complexion, without the irritation commonly associated with acne clearing ingredients.

  • Helps clear and prevent breakouts

  • Nourishes skin for a healthy complexion
  • Reduces the look of post-acne marks
  • Calms and strengthens skin
  • Evens skin tone and texture


Since these products are highly concentrated, start with every other day usage, then increase to daily as your skin adjusts. For best results, gradually increase to twice daily usage.

Key Ingredients

Retinol is the purest Retinoid (Vitamin A) and the most effective non-prescriptive version. This multitasking ingredient is used at very high levels to refine skin tone and texture, and brighten radiance. It’s a must-have for real dermatologist-level results.

In addition, Benzoyl Peroxide helps eliminate bacteria that can cause breakouts, while Salicylic Acid helps release dead skin cells from the skin's surface. Vitamin C is rich in antioxidants to brighten skin, while protecting it from free radical damage to promote a healthy skin barrier. Fruit Seed Extracts nourish skin, and Plant Extracts provide antioxidant protection and help soothe the skin.

How to Use
  • First, massage a nickel-sized amount of Clarifying Cleanser onto wet skin. Rinse with warm water and pat dry with a towel. We recommend using once daily in the evening, unless you have especially oily skin.
  • Next, apply 2 pea-sized pumps of Breakout Treatment to entire face. Keep in mind, Benzoyl Peroxide bleaches fabric. To avoid bleaching, use white towels and linens or rinse Breakout Treatment off after 15 minutes. 
  • Finally, apply 2 pea-sized pumps of Citrus-C Healthy Complexion to entire face.

    To protect your results and prevent sun damage, always apply a broad-spectrum SPF 30-50 each morning and reapply throughout the day.

    As with all skincare products, we recommend anyone pregnant or breastfeeding contacts a doctor before usage.

      What to Expect
      • Within 5-7 days of beginning Acne Clearing System, you should begin to notice improvements. Results will continue to improve over the first 12 weeks, and your best results will become apparent around week 16.
      • It's possible to see a temporary increase in breakouts in the first 3-5 days of using the products. Dr. Z refers to this as purging, as emerging breakouts are brought to the surface to be cleared.
      • If you experience a flare up, stick with it. Your skin is adjusting. It will calm and clear with consistent use.
      • Breakouts typically take 12-14 days before they are visible on the surface of the skin. That’s why it’s so important to continue using Acne Clearing System even when you don’t see breakouts. You want to clear the breakouts before they happen!

      I started this system in June 2020 after adult acne hit me really hard all of a sudden. I was attracted to the ads saying this system was gentle and nourishing while being really effective. I've stuck with it consistently and my skin remains clear almost a year later. The products do exactly what they say they will. Using them is a pleasant sensory experience while also making my skin kind of glow. The system helps with dark spots but I have to say I am especially noticing the results now that I'm at well over six months of use. My skin tone is just more even overall and I can actually get away with just CC cream and no foundation. The cleanser removes a lot of makeup, more than your average face wash. I was only trying to clear acne and got all these other benefits. I've now ordered the booster serum that goes with this 1-2-3 set, plus some of their other products to start expanding my routine and amplify the skin brightening and anti-aging results I'm getting from MD Complete. Customer service is way above average too.


      It's been about a month now since I've been using this system consistently and I can already see improvement in the texture of my skin. I'm still breaking out, but I can see that the quality of my skin is improving. It can be drying at first, I experienced a lot of flaking for the first 2-3 weeks but it's actually satisfying to see all of the crappy skin exfoliate off. I will definitely be repurchasing when I run out!

Please let us know if we can help you further! Best, Client Service


      If you use these products like recommended they are amazing. Within the first 2 month of consistent use I have noticed significant difference in my skin. I have hormonal acne and it has helped with breakouts and scaring around my chin/jaw line. I would highly recommend. It did not dry my skin out or cause any sort of irritation.

      The program helped clear up my skin within a couple of weeks. I am 47 and still have cystic acne and I am now noticing the beginning of wrinkles. I am using a combination of the Acne Clearing System and the Dark Spot Corrector and Wrinkle and Radiance Remedy. They are changing my complexion for the better. I will continue to use these!

      Product that actually work

      The cleanser never dries my skin, even after using it, my face feels moisturized but more than that it does really prevents acne or helps heal it quickly together with the breakout treatment and Citrus-C healthy complexion.
