The teenage years can be challenging for so many reasons. From friends and social media to the latest trainers and best selfies, the list is endless. Puberty is also part of the mix. It causes bodies to change, moods to be unpredictable and an increase the production of sebum (oil secreted by the sebaceous glands) can lead to blocked pores, spots and embarrassment.
If teenagers understand their skin and set up a good skincare routine, it can make life easier, and happier. Clear Start by Dermalogica is a range of products aimed at teenagers that deliver real results.
As with any skincare routine, the key to success is to cleanse, tone and moisturise and All Clear is no different.
The Dermalogica Foaming Wash is deep cleansing so it purifies the skin without stripping those all-important natural oils. Orange Peel and Tea Tree energise the skin making it feel fresh again. Salicylic Acid breaks up dead skin cells and clears trapped oil, which is helpful for preventing future breakouts. This cleanser is intended to be used morning and night for best results.
Toners sometimes seem like an unnecessary step, but this just isn’t the case. The Dermalogica All Over Toner is an easy to use mist can be added to a teenage beauty routine to control excess oil. Salicylic Acid helps prevent breakouts and a mix of twelve botanical ingredients refresh, energise and revive skin so it is ready to be moisuturised.
You might think a moisturieser would add to the issues of acne, but that isn’t true. Dermalogica Matte Moisturiser is a clever oil absorbing moisturiser that comes complete with broad spectrum sunscreens that block skin damaging UVA and UVB radiation. Silicones soothe and protect skin from drying out whilst Burdock Root Extract hydrates and calms the skin. This can be used morning and night and be used over Dermalogica Daytime Treatment.
For teenagers there is nothing worse than getting ready for a party and noticing a spot making an appearance. Dermalogica Emergency Spot Fix is exactly what is needed in such emergencies. This potent topical spot treatment kills the bacteria that is set deep within pores and clears breakouts, fast. At the first sign of a breakout, apply a small amount of cream directly to the area, with finger or cotton bud, and allow to dry before using any other products. It can then be applied every 6-8 hours as needed.
If you want to give the products a go before making a full investment, the Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Kit is a great idea and even make a fantastic gift. It contains five fantastic products to get your teenager started and on the road to clear, blemish free skin.
