For all skin types
Acne-prone skin, Clogged pores
A natural way to fight acne
At Poko, we believe that most skincare conditions can be treated naturally. Therefore, our Azelaic Acid Spot Gel is formulated with all-natural ingredients, to help your skin along its journey. We use vitamin A, a form of retinol, to help with blocked pores and excess keratin production. This helps gently exfoliate the acne-prone area, encouraging better, healthier cell growth. With consistent use, vitamin A can also help protect your skin from sun damage.
Your natural moisture barrier is important
So many spot gels or spot-related treatments can overlook and harm your natural moisture barrier. This, in turn, leaves your skin dry and flaky. In extreme cases, this can also cause redness and hyperpigmentation after use. With our Azelaic Acid Spot Gel, fear not. Formulated with potassium azeloyl diglycinate, we’ve covered all our bases (and yours, too). This skin-friendly ingredient addresses inflammation while keeping your skin hydrated.
For acne or breakouts, try chemical exfoliation
Physical exfoliation can be a little too harsh for acne-prone skin. Even if you’re having a #goodskinday, physical exfoliation can often exacerbate the issue. With our Azelaic Acid Spot Gel, however, you have an option to utilise the powers of chemical exfoliation. It doesn’t have to be scary, either; this superstar spot treatment works to treat problem areas. Whether you want to reduce keratin production, address hyperpigmentation, or need to soothe inflammation, let Poko help.
Formulated for acne-prone skin, or skin that just needs some help with that breakout, you can use the Azelaic Acid Spot Gel both in your AM and PM routines. After cleansing, gently apply the gel all over your face, and leave it to dry. If you’re fighting one certain spot, simply dab the gel over the spot, and follow with the rest of your skincare routine. It’s a great way to… spot-treat those breakouts, if you will!
For best results, follow this with our Light Hydrating Moisturiser – it’ll lock in the moisture without clogging your pores.
Potassium azeloyl diglycinate: A water-soluble alternative to azelaic acid, potassium azeloyl diglycinate largely functions in the same way. In our spot gel, it works to inhibit tyrosinase, a melanin-producing enzyme. This addresses the hyperpigmentation that so often follows a breakout, leaving your skin smoother and clearer. Plus, with regular use, it can leave the skin clearer and brighter – something we all want!
Vitamin A: It’s on the tip of every skinfluencer’s tongue! Retinol is known for its anti-ageing properties; it boosts collagen production, leaving your skin looking and feeling younger. It also helps unclog pores, reducing their appearance with regular use. Perfect for handling breakouts, retinol helps banish dullness, giving your skin that dewy glow.
