Dermalogica’s Active Clearing system works to treat, clear and prevent adult acne while addressing the needs of adult skin. It controls acne without compromising skin’s integrity, which means skin is consistently clear and healthier.
Each product, with its unique acne-fighting and clearing ingredients, is designed to be layered upon the skin to provide around-the-clock, maximum control of the four main factors that contribute to acne.
What can be done to help treat, clear and prevent adult acne?
In order to control acne, we must interrupt the degeneration of the follicle by affecting the four main contributing factors:
By inhibiting the activity of overactive sebaceous glands, we not only eliminate the food source for the bacteria, but we also eliminate oily shine and create a more esthetically-pleasing appearance for the client.
To control cell accumulation we need to stimulate natural exfoliation superficially as well as in the follicle lining. By exfoliating to remove surface cells that have not been shed, we can help eliminate the impaction of follicles which triggers the early stages of comedone formation.
By controlling bacteria on the skin’s surface and in the follicle, and the lipase activity, we can control the source of fatty acids that contribute to irritation.
To help keep inflammation caused by adult acne under control, we must consider the application of topical anti inflammatory repair agents, botanicals and humectants to help the healing process and soothe inflamed skin.
