June is more than just the gateway to summer—it’s National Acne Awareness Month, a time to empower ourselves with knowledge and effective skincare solutions. Acne affects millions of people worldwide, regardless of age or skin type. It's not just a teenage concern; many adults struggle with persistent breakouts well into their 30s, 40s, and beyond.  

Understanding and addressing acne is crucial for maintaining healthy, radiant skin. At Velež, we’re committed to enhancing your journey to clearer, healthier skin with our advanced skincare products. 


Our philosophy at Velez is rooted in science-backed skincare that works in harmony with the environment. We've developed two key products that can be transformative for those battling acne: 

Velež Intense Hydration Face Mask: Crafted with advanced biotech cellulose, our face mask is designed to deeply hydrate and soothe irritated skin. Beyond its hydrating properties, it aids in calming inflammation—making it an ideal choice for those with acne-prone skin seeking relief. Use it weekly to balance the skin, helps reduce inflammation/redness, and provides pure hydration. 

HOCL Hydrating Mist: Harnessing the power of Hypochlorous Acid (HOCL), our hydrating mist serves as a versatile companion in your skincare regimen. Known for its antimicrobial properties, HOCL effectively fights acne-causing bacteria while maintaining skin's natural balance. It can be used on both face and body acne. Here are some additional uses: 

  • Use as a toner-mist to refresh and prepare your skin in the morning. 
  • Spritz after gym or sports activities to cleanse and prevent back acne. 


For those looking to incorporate Velež products into their daily skincare routine, consider this simple regimen: 

Morning Routine: 

  • Cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser. 
  • Follow with a few spritzes of Velež HOCL Hydrating Mist to refresh and prepare your skin for the day ahead. 
  • Apply your favorite serum or moisturizer. 
  • Finish with sunscreen for daytime protection. 

Evening Routine: 

  • Double-cleanse your face to remove makeup and impurities. 
  • Apply Velež Intense Hydration Face Mask for at least 20-30 minutes or up to 2 hours to deeply hydrate and calm the skin, especially after a long day. 
  • Remove the mask and gently massage your favorite night serum into your skin. 
  • Follow with your moisturizer to lock in hydration overnight. 


While these products can work wonders on their own, the key to managing acne-prone skin is consistency. Incorporate our face mask into your skincare routine and use the HOCL Hydrating Mist daily for the best results. Remember, skincare is a journey, and patience is crucial. In addition to using effective products, consider these tips for managing acne-prone skin: 

  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water 
  • Maintain a balanced diet rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids 
  • Manage stress through meditation, exercise, or other relaxation techniques 
  • Always remove makeup before bed 
  • Avoid touching your face throughout the day 

This National Acne Awareness Month, we invite you to embrace your skin journey with Velež. Our products are designed to support you every step of the way, helping you achieve the clear, radiant complexion you deserve. 

Remember, beautiful skin isn't about perfection – it's about feeling confident and comfortable in your own skin. Let Velež be your partner in this journey towards healthier, happier skin.
