The Gold Standard Antidote to Acne and Ageing
Not only are adult breakouts on the rise but early signs of ageing are too. Why is this?
Let’s take a look at our modern world and current economic climate! It’s taking its toll and it’s reflecting in the condition of the skin of both men and women. 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 and ageing.
The link between Acne and Ageing
Not only is the threat of the breakouts and signs of aging real, as adults, we’re more prone to post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, i.e. that unsightly mark on the skin once the breakout has cleared. This marking adds years to our perceived age and can often outstay its predecessor breakout. What many people are not aware of is that in the breakouts healing and clearing process the immune cells break through and degrade our skin plumping collagen and can leave some individuals with crater scaring. This demonstrates that acne as an adult is also a premature ageing condition. As stress is a driver of our acne, the hormone Cortisol which is released from the Adrenal glands when we are stressed, accelerates the ageing process and increases pigment production in skin. It also slows healing time of the breakouts.
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 gold standard 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. Get a head start on clearer, younger looking skin. Shop this product online or at any of our 12 salon locations
