Dermalogica’s new Active Clearing range is busting the myth that acne only occurs in teenagers, and providing those of us with adult breakout-prone skin a solution that also prevents signs of premature ageing!

 

 


So, what makes adult acne different from teen acne?

 

 


As we age, our skin quality changes, and we need to ensure the products we use appropriately address these changes to ensure the best results possible. One example is that as we age, our skin becomes thinner and we are more likely to experience sensitivity. Also, adult skin also has a slower cell turnover causing a reduction in our natural exfoliation of dead skin cells. This slowing down in the exfoliation in dead cells causes the skin follicle to become clogged, and can lead to congestion or breakouts!

Dermalogica’s Active Clearing complex harnesses the best of nature and science to control breakouts and reduce the appearance of related skin ageing. Because of adult skin's potential for skin-ageing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, having products that address breakouts, ageing and repair the skins barrier simultaneously help streamline treatment!

 

Here’s a quick run through of the range:

   

Clearing Skin Wash

This cleanser helps clear breakouts and visible signs of premature skin ageing by reducing excess sebum which minimises the food source for acne causing bacterias. It also stimulates natural exfoliation superficially as well as in the follicle lining to reduce and prevent cell accumulation. It controls acne causing bacteria on the skin surface and in the follicle to promote clear skin, while stopping inflammaging before it starts by helping protect the skin from environmental factors promoting barrier health and soothing the skin.

Adults with breakout-prone skin need a pH balanced cleanser that will cleanse away excess skin cells without over-drying the skin. This cleanser will clear away all excess oils while still maintaining healthy, hydrated skin.

AGE Bright Clearing Serum

This active two-in-one serum clears and helps prevent breakouts while reducing visible skin ageing. Salicylic Acid reduces breakouts to clear skin. This highly-concentrated serum exfoliates to help prevent breakouts and accelerates cell turnover to reduce signs of skin ageing. AGE Bright™ Complex works with the skin’s natural microbiome for clearer, brighter skin. Phytoactives from Resurrection Plant, known for its ability to survive extreme dehydration, hydrate and smooth skin. Niacinamide works together with White Shiitake Mushroom to promote brighter, more even skin tone.

AGE Bright Spot Fader

This two-in-one spot treatment reduces the appearance of active breakouts and post-breakout marks. Salicylic Acid works to clear breakouts, while Niacinamide and Hexylresorcinol work synergistically to fade post-breakout marks, improving uneven skin tone. AGE Bright™ Complex reduces visible skin ageing and helps prevent over-drying.

Sebum Clearing Masque

Ideal for breakout prone, and prematurely ageing skin, this soothing clay masque helps clear breakouts and minimise premature signs of skin ageing. Oil-absorbing clays help purify and detoxify oily skin as Salicylic Acid clears pore congestion. Calming botanicals such as Oat and Bisabolol help soothe aggravation brought on by breakouts. Safflower Oil helps counter fine dehydration lines as its hydrating properties promote elasticity. This masque also helps even skin tone, by brightening and fading pigmentation.

Oil Free Matte SPF30

This product is ideal for breakout-prone prematurely ageing skin with areas of excess oil production. The broad spectrum sunscreen helps prevent shine and skin ageing on oily, breakout-prone skin. This mattifying formula is a must for adults who want to combat oily shine and defend against UV-induced skin ageing, without leaving behind a white cast.

.

Overnight Clearing Gel

This night-time gel helps clear breakouts and reduce visible skin ageing. This invisible formula is ideal for reducing the appearance of active breakouts, by regulating oil and sebum production of the skin. This reduction of excess sebum, minimises the food source for acne causing bacterias, and as a result, reduces the likelihood of breakouts.
