Now there are 2 new ways to have clear, glowing skin

I received two new products from one of my favourite skincare brands last month and my 16-year-old daughter grabbed them and smuggled them off to the bathroom!

She battles with her skin – not full-scale acne – but hormonal breakouts often result in a rash of pimples on her skin, especially during the stressful exam month. Late nights, lack of sunshine and snacking all have their effects on her skin too – causing much distress.

Dermalogica has introduced two fabulous (and fast and effective) products that treat breakouts, clear blackheads and improve the appearance of the skin.

They’re aimed at the 17 – 25 year-old market but blackheads can affect everyone – and so can breakouts – so they’re suitable for skin of any age.

My daughter’s skin reacted really well to both the products – her nose is free from blackouts and her skin was soothed: the spots lost their angry redness and dried up in a couple of days. She’s taken both products in her suitcase to her choir camp in the Berg this week – her new armour against the next breakout.

This is what causes those distressing breakouts

Everyone has breakout-causing bacteriaImage result for p-acnes
Propionibacterium acnes (aka P. acnes) on their skin, but not everyone gets breakouts. Sometimes hormonal signals trigger oil production stimulated by changes in diet and psychological stress. When this excess oil, debris and bacteria get trapped in the follicle, this can lead to breakouts.

Clear Start™ Breakout Clearing Booster – clears breakout-causing bacteria in 15 minutes!

Dermalogica’s NEW Breakout Clearing Booster’s invisible formula clears breakout-causing bacteria in only 15 minutes.

  • Formulated with salicylic acid, this fast-acting allover/spot treatment helps kill breakout-causing bacteria for rapid skin clearing. Patented TT technology and phytoplankton extract work with the skin’s natural microbiome and help prevent over-drying.
  • Salicylic acid stimulates natural exfoliation, helping to clear impacted follicles and minimise breakouts
  • Niacinamide reinforces the skin’s defensive barrier and helps to even skin tone
  • Seaweed-derived Chondrus crispus extract locks in moisture to help soothe irritated skin
  • Vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free

How to use:

Apply directly to blemish or breakout area, or apply a thin layer all over the face under moisturiser for breakout prevention. Use morning and night, more as needed.

NEW Blackhead Clearing Fizz Mask targets blackheads before they turn into breakouts

Untreated blackheads can also become breakouts so it’s important to control them too.

The Blackhead Clearing Fizz Mask activates as soon as you apply it to open pores, helps dissolve congestion and facilitates blackhead clearing. Skin-soothing botanicals also work to combat dryness, leaving skin smooth and refreshed.

  • Sulphur provides anti-microbial benefits to help keep skin clear
  • Kaolin clay absorbs excess oil and purifies the skin
  • Apple fruit extract helps hydrate the skin
  • Vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free

How to use:

Apply to areas of congestion, and allow three to five minutes to fully activate. Rinse thoroughly with tepid water, and follow with your recommended Clear Start product. Use two to three times per week, more often if needed.
