Did you know that adult acne is on the rise and that women are five times more likely to develop breakouts? When breakouts occur in your mid-20s,30s, and 40s, there are quite a number of factors that need to be considered such as your hormones, diet, stress, and lifestyle - all of which can bring out those breakouts.
Now, the challenge here is that as we age, things don’t heal as fast and inflammation is therefore prolonged. This may lead to scarring and pigmentation marks left on the skin. Because adult skin is more prone to dryness, dehydration, and sensitivity, using anti-acne products that are designed for a teenager’s skin may be too harsh and aggressive on your skin.
In come Dermalogica who have identified the need for skincare that will tackle both adult breakouts and skin aging concerns. Introducing Age Bright Clearing Serum and Age Bright Spot Fader both harnessing the best of nature and science to combat breakouts and reduce the appearance of related skin aging.
First up is Age Bright Clearing Serum. This is a must if you regularly experience under the surface congestion and/or hormonal breakouts, accompanied by dullness and dehydration. This two-in-one brightening and clearing serum will target acne-causing bacteria, smooth fine lines and promote a more radiant, softer skin.
Age Bright Clearing Serum can be used twice a day and applied to the whole face or just to affected areas, such as the jawline (where we commonly see adult breakouts) followed by your recommended moisturiser.
Next is Age Bright Spot Fader. A perfect two in one spot treatment that will help reduce the appearance of active breakouts, along with the marks they leave behind. A must-have for anyone who suffers from adult breakouts.
To be used after cleansing and toning, twist the top of the AGE Bright Spot Fader and apply directly to individual breakouts as soon as they appear, twice a day. If using in conjunction with the AGE Bright Clearing Serum, apply the serum first, followed by the AGE Bright Spot Fader.
For those keen beauty buffs, the key ingredients in both are;
2% Salicylic Acid which will accelerate cell turn over and reduce redness associated with breakouts.
Age Bright Complex: works with the skins natural microbiome(bacteria) for clearer and brighter skin.
Resurrection Plant: Works as a hydrating agent to retain moisture.
Niacinamide and White Shitake Mushroom: Work together to promote brighter, more even skin tone (In Age Bright Clearing Serum only).
Niacinamide and Hexyl Resorcinol: Targets and help fade any discolourisation left behind and improve uneven skin tone (in Age Bright Fader only).
Make your day that little bit brighter with clearer skin.
