Do you have open pores, blackheads or breakouts?

Most people suffer with spots or blemishes on their skin, regardless of skin type.

According to Journal of Pediatrics, by mid-teenage years more than 40 percent of us have experienced some form of acne - whether a few pimples or seriously spotty skin.

Fact is, the hormones that trigger teenage acne fluctuate throughout your 20’s, causing blackheads, spots, pimples and oily skin. Then again, in your 30’s and 40’s, hormones can fluctuate a second time in preparation for the menopause, causing adult acne.

And it’s not just age that triggers acne, blackheads, spots and open pores. Stress, genetics and lifestyle all play a part, regardless of how old you are.

But… at last! There’s 2 new formulas to rid blackheads and breakouts.

2 professional products for cheap, high-street prices that work like nothing you’ve ever seen. All with natural, vegan friendly ingredients.

In order to know how this brand new formula works… here’s what causes breakouts and blackheads

In general, breakouts are caused by a buildup of dead skin cells, excess sebum (oil), and bacteria. When excess oil and skin cells clump together, they can form an impaction, or plug, in a follicle - or open pore.

Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) bacteria live harmlessly on the skin but, when trapped inside the follicle, they can multiply and cause breakouts. This then results in inflammation, causing the redness and pain that is typically associated with acne.

The Anatomy of a Breakout

Our outermost layer of skin (the epidermis) coats our bodies - and our follicles - like a thin sheet of laminating paper. Many follicles are attached to sebaceous (oil-secreting) glands below the skin’s surface. These glands secrete sebum, which is wicked out by tiny vellus hairs.

At the same time, an average person sheds approximately 35,000 skin cells per hour while a person with a genetic predisposition to acneic skin can shed up to four times that amount. If any of those dead skin cells collect and remain in a sebaceous follicle, there is a chance that they can mix with excess oil and clump together. This can form low-grade acne such as blackheads, whiteheads and milia, as well as set the stage for higher-grade acne such as papules, pustules, nodules and cysts.

You might have one of the following types of breakout:

Acne Diagrams 01


Blackheads are open comedones that turn black, not because of dirt, but because of oil, dead skin cells and bacteria inside the follicle mix and oxidise, like an apple that has been sliced open. This means the follicle is open and still receives oxygen. Some blackheads resolve themselves, or are easily extracted. Others linger and can grow into more severe forms of acne if they become infected or inflamed.

Acne Diagrams 02


Whiteheads are closed comedones that occur just like blackheads but don’t oxidise. These usually go away on their own, but can also grow into more severe forms of acne if they become infected or inflamed.

Acne Diagrams 07


Milia happen when dead skin cells and/or sebum (or keratin) become trapped by skin that grows over them. You may recognise milia as tiny, hard, white bumps that cannot be extracted. Milia are often mischaracterized as acne, when in fact they are benign cysts.

Blackheads can turn into breakouts

Blackheads, whiteheads and milia are non-inflammatory, meaning there is no redness or inflammation present. When redness or inflammation is present, there is a higher grade of acne. In short, untreated blackheads, whiteheads and milia can become breakouts if infected by breakout-causing bacteria.

Breakouts are categorised into four types:

Acne Diagrams 03


Papules are red, raised bumps that occur after a closed follicle is deprived of too much oxygen. This anaerobic environment causes the dormant P.acnes inside to become active and consume excess sebum and dead skin cells. The more P.acnes multiply and consume sebum, the bigger the follicle swells into a papule.

Acne Diagrams 04


Pustules are pus-filled bumps that occur when an infection is present in the follicle. This happens when the follicle swells too much with excessive skin cells, sebum and bacteria, causing the follicle wall to rupture beneath the skin. This rupture lets P.acnes spill into the dermis. This infection triggers the immune system to send white blood cells to the rescue. A battle rages between white blood cells and P.acnes, causing collateral damage in the form of pus. Pustules are red and inflamed whereas whiteheads are not.

Acne Diagrams 05


Nodules develop when an infection spreads to neighbouring follicles. Nodules look like multiple papules and pustules clustered together, or large, bumpy areas.

Acne Diagrams 06


Cysts form when the infection lingers long enough within the dermis for the body to quarantine it within a membrane. Because of this quarantine, nothing gets in or out of a cyst, including topical or acne products.

Everyone Has P. Acnes on Their Skin

After reading the list above, you can probably resonate with one or two breakout types.

The thing is: everyone has P. Acnes on skin. Everyone has bad bacteria. The key to getting rid of reddened pimples, spots and pustules - balance the good bacteria and get rid of the bad.

How do I treat breakouts?

Once you understand what type of breakout you have, you can begin to treat it correctly.

If you suffer blackheads, whiteheads or milia - the ‘Active Fizzing Formula’ within Dermalogica’s Blackhead Clearing Fizz Mask will open your pores or follicles, remove the clogged skin cells or bacteria and smooth your skin.

If your acne is red or sore, the clever ‘TT Technology’ within Breakout Clearing Booster will actually penetrate the walls of bad bacteria and destroy them. This formula does not harm good bacteria, so you don’t have to worry about stripping the skin at all.

If you have a combination of blackheads and breakouts - use both products! You can enjoy the Fizz Mask a couple of times a week and enjoy the Clearing Booster as a daily spot treatment. Most people will benefit from the Fizz mask on their T-zone (let’s face it, who hasn’t experienced blackheads on their nose!)

Is this just for teens?

No! These new Clear Start products have been formulated with natural ingredient complexes to resolve breakouts and they will work for skin at any age. If you have a few active breakouts around the chin area you could use Breakout Clearing Booster alongside your usual products. The reason these products are cheaper than other Dermalogica products is simply because they are simple, natural ingredient complexes. If you are looking for a stronger acne treatment, you can progress to Dermalogica’s Medibac range.

The thing is, when you are in your 20’s skin cell turnover rate is high - this means your skin cells will naturally shed making skin look bright. However, as you age skin cell turnover rate slows down, making your complexion appear dull perhaps with fine lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity. In this instance, you will need a product that aids cell turnover and deal with spots - at the same time. Medibac is a good option here.
