The Clover Skincare Routine: Acne-Prone + Sensitive Skin

If you struggle with angry skin—acne, sensitivity, inflammation—chances are you've tried every treatment out there to no avail.

What if we told you all those lotions and potions aren't working because the majority of them aren't treating one of the root causes of acne and sensitivity: a compromised skin barrier?

Your skin barrier controls essentially everything about how your skin behaves. When it's damaged—ironically, often from harsh ingredients meant to treat acne—your skin barrier allows bacteria and other irritants to penetrate the skin, becomes inflamed and sensitive and, yes, tends to break out. So you can see how treating those breakouts with more harsh acne treatments only perpetuates the angry skin cycle!

We developed our skincare to flip the script on treating acne and sensitivity. Rather than fighting your skin, our products are made to help heal it.

So if you struggle with acne, inflammation, or sensitivity, keep reading. This skin-loving routine will help you heal and soothe your skin and get your glow back... for good.

The Clover Skincare Routine:

Acne-Prone + Sensitive Skin


Remove makeup, sunscreen, and other impurities with a gentle cleansing oil, like Makeup Melt.

Massage 3-5 pumps onto dry skin for 30 seconds, then massage with water and rinse.

Gently cleanse a second time with a traditional gel or foaming cleanser.

This step is especially important at night to help remove any remaining makeup or sunscreen.

Our team loves Indie Lee Rosehip Cleanser or CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser for this step.


At night only: If you use retinol, apply it now.

Let it absorb fully for a few minutes before continuing with your skincare routine.


Serum time! H2Glow+ deeply hydrates and soothes the skin while infusing it with a mini dose of our bestselling Balancing Oil. Massage 1-2 pumps into skin.

Optional: Apply a traditional cream moisturizer.

(Many people use Balancing Oil as their moisturizer, so if that's you, skip to step 6!)

We love Glow Recipe Plum Plump Moisturizer or La Roche-Posay Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer.


Seal in all that hydration—and give skin a powerful anti-inflammatory boost—with Balancing Oil.

Just press 3-5 drops into skin.
