When it comes to fighting blemishes, the struggle is real.

Hundreds of spot-reducing products, pimple poppers and zit-zapping creams fill our beauty cupboards, but no matter how hard we try, sometimes the blemish just won't go down. Enter FOREO.

Their cleansing devices have been designed to help promote clearer and healthier looking skin over time, but their newest venture has results in far quicker time.

The FOREO ESPADA has been designed used blue light therapy, which helps to kill acne and spot-causing bacteria, thereby reducing inflammation and the time it takes for blemishes to heal.

What causes Acne?

Acne is an extreme form of getting a couple of blemishes on the skin, and occurs when pores become blocked with dirt and oil and produce painful and inflamed cysts on the skin. Contrary to popular belief, acne is not caused by an improper skincare routine, and is generally a cause of hormonal and genetic problems. Nevertheless, using the right tools and skincare can help to reduce its effects.

How to treat Acne?

When it comes to treating acne and blemishes, it's really not a one-option fits all approach, especially with skincare. However, the new FOREO ESPADA works for all skin types and problems and thanks to its gentle yet powerful blue light therapy for acne, helps to clear up blemishes faster.

As it doesn't have a host of ingredients in its repertoire like a skincare product, but instead uses medical-grade hygienic silicone, it really can be used by any and everyone.

Prevent Breakouts

One of the best ways to deal with breakouts is to prevent them. Treat your whole body with a little TLC. Your skin is, after all, your largest organ, and what you put in is what you’ll get out. Regular exercise, a healthy diet, and plenty of water—the easy-to-follow recipe for a healthy glow!

Personalise your Skincare Routine

Keeping your skin clean is important, but a proper cleansing routine is not the same for everyone (there is such a thing as too clean!). Find the right combination of products for your individual skin type, and keep it consistent.

Protect your Skin

You’ve likely heard it before, but it bears repeating—wear sunscreen! Applying a lightweight moisturiser and SPF will keep your skin hydrated, protect you from the sun's harmful rays, prevent premature ageing, and keep your face wrinkle-free.

Prevail with the FOREO ESPADA

Often, maintaining clear skin is easier said than done. Despite your best efforts, you may still wake up with a blemish from time to time. Don’t worry; it happens to the best of us! FOREO’s got you covered with ESPADA—a powerful blue light acne treatment that strikes acne-causing bacteria at its source. ESPADA, meaning sword, is your secret weapon in the battle against breakouts.

Made of medical-grade silicone, this professional-level solution is safe and simple to use in the comfort of your own home. Its lightweight design and long-lasting charge also make it great for travel—because you never know when a pimple could pop up.

No need to bother with messy creams or DIY treatments that may or may not be effective. At the first sign of a breakout, simply turn on the ESPADA and use the red crosshairs to precisely target the blemish. Treatment is automatically activated upon contact with your skin. The ESPADA diffuses 415nm of blue light into the problem area, its power amplified by T-Sonic pulsations that stimulate blood circulation and allow the treatment to penetrate deep beneath the surface of the skin. After 30 seconds, the built-in timer will notify you that you’re finished.

ESPADA is quick and effective, so you can get back to your life—without acne.
