How TRIO Blemish works 

  • Control sebum production (Niacinamide and AcneCalmTM)
  • Decreases sticky skin cells (Retinol and Retinaldehyde)
  • Unclogs pores (Salicylic acid)
  • Decreases C. acnes bacteria (AcneCalmTM)
  • Decreases red marks and brown marks (Phytic acid, Ferulic acid, Dioic acid and Vitamin C)
  • Decreases scarring (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate)
  • Repairs skin barrier (Ceramides, Glycerin and Allantoin) 
  • Anti-aging with Retinol, Glycerin and Retinaldehyde

Why Use a GEL Moisturiser?

For oily/acne prone skin, you want to use a non-comedogenic moisturiser (doesn’t clog pores). For this you ideally want a non-fatty moisturiser, so a light gel-based moisturiser is preferrable, where you know the water content is high & fat content negligible.

Why Use Separate AM/PM Moisturisers?

There are advantages to using some active ingredients at night, and there are other ingredients which you would not want to use during the day ideally. This calls for separate formulations of moisturiser, so ingredient utilisation is optimised for each time period.

People of skin of colour with oily skin are more likely to get all 3 acne blemishes:

1. Acne,

2. Post Inflammatory Erythema (red marks)

3. Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (brown marks).

We need to tackle all 3 processes simultaneously.

In skin of colour, we don’t want to worsen acne or cause reactions, as this is more likely to lead to hyperpigmentation. The TRIO Blemish range has a minimal expected reaction rate (zero reactions in the consumer study in fact).

The active ingredients are at the correct percentages for skin of colour, working synergistically in an easy-to-follow step-by-step system.

The simplification reduces the risk of making mistakes with confusing skincare products & layering, which are more costly for skin of colour.

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO YOUR SKIN & HOW DOES TRIO BLEMISH HELP?

There is an increase of sebum production, your skin cells become more sticky and this clogs the pores creating an anaerobic environment in the pore where C. Acnes bacteria then replicates. This is seen as a pimple.

We want to use TRIO Blemish products to regulate sebum production, unclog pores and reduce marks seen from acne.

If pimples become large and painful it is called a cyst and you should see a dermatologist.

For people with oily/acne prone skin and/or enlarged pores, blackheads, sebaceous filaments.

Separate protocols apply for general oily skin and combination skin (see below).

From 12 years of age onwards.

Not for persons with a history of reactions to skincare products or overly sensitive or damaged skin.

Warning: In general, only apply the products in this range on normal, clean skin, not if cracked/damaged. In the rare event of skin irritation or an allergic skin reaction, please discontinue use and contact your doctor if required. 

Side Effects: in rare cases, spots may occur for a few days or up to 6 weeks when you first start usage of TRIO Blemish. This is likely to be 'purging' where the vitamin A in the TRIO Blemish products causes skin cell turnover to increase and bring oil/bacteria up to the skin's surface quicker than usual (in oily/acne prone skin).

1. How long would TRIO Blemish range products last for?

This will vary for each product and person, however, if usage guidelines are followed, the average duration may be 6-8 weeks approx.

2. Is the TRIO Blemish suitable for pregnancy & breastfeeding?

The range is suitable for pregnancy except for the 'PM Gel Moisturiser' (contains Vitamin A). If unsure or your circumstances vary, please check with your doctor.

3. Is the TRIO Blemish range suitable for all skin types?

The full product range is NOT suitable for dry/sensitive skin.

It is only suitable for oily/acne prone skin or combination/acne prone skin.

People with DRY/ACNE prone skin can use TRIO Blemish Face Wash & AM Gel Moisturiser in the MORNING, and in the EVENING use TRIO Blemish Face Wash & PM Gel & Cera Pep Moisturiser.

You should NOT use the TRIO Blemish Exfoliator, but if your skin is not too dry/sensitive, you can use Exfoliate to Glow on the acne areas (gently applied, not sprayed on as normal). Exfoliator usage is at user discretion; discontinue if skin is intolerant.

4a. What if I have combination skin (acne prone, hormonal acne & non-acne prone)?

Please try the following protocol if your skin is normal/dry in most areas and oily on the T-zone:

AM & PM please use the Dr. V Daily Range, but on the T-zone, use the TRIO Blemish Exfoliator INSTEAD OF the Daily Range 'Exfoliate to Glow' product.

Alternatively, you can use the full TRIO Blemish range on the oily t-zone, and the full Daily range on normal/dry skin if you wish, but this may over-complicate your skincare routine and not be sustainable.

4b. What if I have combination skin plus rosacea?

Same routine as (4a) above on all other areas but do not exfoliate on rosacea area please.

5a. Can you use the TRIO Blemish range with Dr. V Hyperpigmentation kits?

Yes, using the following protocol:

MORNING:

1. Wash with TRIO Blemish Face Wash

2. Apply TRIO Blemish Exfoliator

3. TRIO Blemish AM Gel Moisturiser.

EVENING:

1. TRIO Blemish Face Wash

2. TRIO Blemish Exfoliator,

3. Dr. V Facial Pigmentation Kit

4. TRIO Blemish PM Gel Moisturiser (optional - you may find the FP Kit creams hydrating enough)

5b. Can you use the TRIO Blemish range with Dr. V Antioxidant Power Serum, to enhance anti-ageing benefits?

Yes, use the AO Serum last, after the TRIO Blemish PM Gel Moisturiser.

5c. Can you mix & match the TRIO Blemish range with Dr. V Daily Range or 3rd party products?

Yes, you can interchange parts of the TRIO Blemish routine with products from other brands or Dr V Daily Range, for example if you only want to use TRIO Blemish cleansers but moisturisers from elsewhere and vice versa.

6a. Can I still use Tretinoin/ topical Acne medications (Duac, Adapalene etc) with TRIO Blemish range?

Yes, same as Facial Pigmentation kit protocol above, but swapping the kit with Tretinoin/medication, and SKIP the evening Exfoliator application.

So the protocol would be:

MORNING:

1. Wash with TRIO Blemish Face Wash

2. Apply TRIO Blemish Exfoliator

3. TRIO Blemish AM Gel Moisturiser.

EVENING:

1. TRIO Blemish Face Wash

2. Tretinoin or Acne medication

3. TRIO Blemish PM Gel Moisturiser

6b. Can I use the TRIO Blemish range whilst on Isotretinoin/Roaccutane?

Only some of the products, you can use the TRIO Blemish Face Wash & AM Gel Moisturiser.

Please do not use the PM Gel or Exfoliator.

6c. Should I still use Niacinamide, Ceramides, Retinol, Vitamin A/C/E serums from other skincare lines in conjunction with the Dr V. TRIO Blemish Range?

No, nothing else required, it's all in the range.

You can try other products with the range, however only you know your skin and what it can tolerate, so some trial & error may be needed.

7. Can TRIO Blemish be used for body acne, such as on the back?

Yes. For back acne, a possible routine could be:

1. TRIO Blemish Exfoliator (leave on for at least 20 mins).

2. Followed by Deep Cleansing Body Wash

8. Is 'purging' likely?

In rare cases, spots may occur for a few days or up to 6 weeks when you first start usage of TRIO Blemish. This is likely to be 'purging' where the vitamin A in the TRIO Blemish products causes skin cell turnover to increase and bring oil/bacteria up to the skin's surface quicker than usual (in oily/acne prone skin).

9. How long does it take to see results?

You may start to notice beneficial effects in as little as 2-4 weeks, however we advise 8+ weeks to see the full potential, as per the consumer trial results.

All her products are great

I have both the anti aging skin care and the acne skin care and they both work so amazing. I use the acne routine prior to my period (I break out bad) or when I have any type of blemish I use the acne routine and 100% of the time the acne is gone the next day(with the help with pimple patches) I get so many compliments on my skin and I'm like please invest in Vantia rattan. I know it can be expensive but I promise it is a investment in your body that you will 100% appreciate. That being said I have not been disappointed in anything.

Working well

Purchased this kit back in June & started to see a difference but not much as personal circumstances arose & I wasn't consistent with the routine. I then decided to purchase the daily range (which is now just sitting in the box) very good products but not the best for my oily skin so now I am on my 2nd box of the trio daily range & my skin is looking healthy I'm starting to feel comfortable with my skin as I do not wear make-up (also hormones played apart in terrorising my face as I had a baby 6 months ago) will be purchasing my 3rd box to have on standby.

He is happy on the change on face so am i. GOOD PRODUCT FOE THREE STEP. THX.

Effective Skin Care

I often think about where my skin would be today had it met Dr. V, 19 years ago. She not only shared her knowledge on good skin care but also provided us with the tools needed to apply that knowledge- The Trio Blemish Range. A very simple and effective skin care routine. It’s not drying or irritating. My skin feels cool and calm. Literally skin therapy in a bottle. Most importantly, fewer breakouts and improved hyperpigmentation. The only draw back is that the AM moisturizer does not play well with my inzincable, causes pilling. I have to wait at least 20 minutes after applying to reduce pilling. However, small price to pay for such effective products . It truly delivers on its promises!
