When an adult comes into a store looking for a product to help solve a skin issue like acne, it can be a delicate subject to navigate. We all expect fine lines and wrinkles will appear at some point in our lives but, we assume acne is something we only face along with high school exams and first kisses.
However, more adults are experiencing chronic stress – and as a result – adult acne, than ever before. Hormone imbalances and the modern pace of life are wreaking havoc on our skin.
As a beauty advisor, it can be difficult to suggest a solution for adult acne and often customers are at a loss with what products to use. Harsh topical treatments may help with breakouts but will zap moisture from mature skin, and rich creams will help reduce the signs of ageing while also overloading inflamed areas. It’s a catch-22.
That’s why Dermalogica has changed its approach to skincare to accommodate consumer’s changing skin. Their new Active Clearing range helps tackle both breakouts and the signs of ageing.
The new AGE Bright Clearing Serum is a highly-concentrated serum which exfoliates the skin to prevent breakouts and accelerate cell turnover. This multitasking serum is formulated with salicylic acid and niacinamide (both known miracle workers for acne) to reveal brighter, clearer skin.
And the AGE Bright Spot Fader is a more targeted treatment for those pesky pimples that won’t budge. It’s a two-in-one product that helps reduce the appearance of active breaks and fade those post-breakout marks that have overstayed their welcome. The AGE Bright Complex also reduces visible skin ageing and helps prevent over-drying.
The AGE Bright Clearing Serum and AGE Bright Spot Fader can be used in conjunction with other products in the Active Clearing range to maximum results. This includes the Clearing Skin Wash, Sebum Clearing Masque, Oil Free Matte SPF30 and Overnight Clearing Gel (author’s note: this is a holy grail product in my skincare routine).
Active Clearing products are vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free, and formulated without artificial fragrances or colours. All products are available now.
