Adult breakouts are on the rise. Why? Well, it’s a reflection of the demands of our modern world. Chronic stress and consequential hormonal imbalances lead to an increase in oil production, an increase in sensitivity and a delayed healing response. In short, a recipe for acne.
Acne and Ageing Go Hand in Hand
But it’s not just the breakouts that threaten the health of our skin. As adults, we’re more prone to post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, i.e. marking on the skin once the breakout has cleared. This marking often lingers for much longer than the actual breakout and can add years onto our perceived age. Couple this with the trauma of the breakout itself, which causes a degradation of our collagen, you can see having acne as an adult is also a premature ageing condition. Plus, if stress is a driver of our acne, this to speeds up the ageing process as result of the free radicals generated by elevated stress levels.
NEW Retinol Clearing Oil – A Dermalogica First
Experts in skin, Dermalogica has created a solution that tackles both acne and premature skin ageing. The NEW Retinol Clearing Oil joins its Active Clearing line, a full system of skincare that specifically addresses the challenges of adult breakouts.
Together for the first time, Retinol Clearing Oil combines the powers of Retinol and Salicylic Acid. Hailed as one of the most results driven ingredients to treat accelerated skin ageing, Retinol supercharges cell renewal and improve skin firmness. Salicylic Acid, on the other hand, is known for its ability to treat breakouts – it deep cleans and decongests pores, while reducing redness.
What’s also stand out, is that these two potent actives are housed in a soothing oil that releases them over time to minimise irritation, while nourishing the skin. The blend of Jojoba, Rosehip Seed, and Argan Oils also help to rebuild the strength of the skin and speed up healing.
Retinol Clearing Oil should be used at night-time. Fill dropper and smooth 6 – 10 drops of the oil over your skin. Sunscreen is essential when using ingredients that renew and exfoliate the skin. Dermalogica’s Invisible Physical Defense SPF30 can be used on all skins and is ideal for anyone experiencing sensitivity from breakouts.
Retinol Clearing Oil is clinically proven to renew skin overnight, delivering clearer skin and reducing the signs of premature ageing within seven days.
