The beauty of Dermalogica skin care is that it can be ‘prescriptive’, meaning you can tailor the products you use to suit your skincare needs. Dermalogica have created different ranges of products including the heroes - the everyday products, the ultracalming range for sensitive skin, the AGE smart range for more mature skin and the active clearing range for breakout prone skin.
The idea is that you can use all the products within a range or you can pick and choose products from the different ranges to suit your skin needs. So you can build up a regimen that helps you achieve your happiest, healthiest skin.
Up first….a Jersey quick guide to the Active Clearing (formally Medibac) range.
Today, more people are experiencing chronic stress and adult acne than ever before. Chronic stress and hormonal imbalances, combined with environmental shifts and our busy lifestyles, are causing more breakouts and accelerated signs of skin ageing.
The Active Clearing range has been designed to target the key factors that contribute to breakouts while addressing the unique needs of adult breakout-prone skin. Breakout-prone adult skin tends to experience slow cell turnover, slow healing times and increased sensitivity.
Active Clearing products clear adult breakouts and reduce signs of premature skin ageing – all with the latest ‘active ingredient’ technology. The Active Clearing products contain Salicylic Acid that helps clear clogged follicles, which contribute to breakouts.
Active Clearing products can be used together for maximum results, or used separately, alongside your normal products, to address a specific concern.
The Active Clearing range contains a moisturiser, a cleanser, a masque, a serum, a spot treatment and an overnight treatment. If you frequently struggle with breakouts, you might want to introduce more than one of the Active Clearing products into your skincare routine. Or if you maybe just tend to get the odd spot, you might just want to introduce the spot fader. It’s entirely up to you, after all, you know your skin the best.
