Many of our customers ask us when they should start a healthy skin care routine for their children. Sebum production starts at around the age of ten and this is when signs of change can be seen. Dry or oily complexions tend to intensify, bumps, clogged pores and spots can appear and embarrassment can be caused.
Bacteria, dirt and make-up can build up on the skin so starting an easy to use programme before trouble strikes and issues occur, can be a great idea and set positive patterns for the future.
The Dermalogica Clear Start programme is a range of gentle but effective products that care for teenage skin and deliver outstanding results.
First things first and the Dermalogica Foaming Wash. This is a deep cleansing, skin purifying cleanser, that is perfect for teenager skin that is breakout prone. Orange Peel and Tea Tree oils energise and the refresh skin and they also smell great. Salicylic Acid breaks up dead skin cells and clears that annoying trapped oil to help wipe out existing and future breakouts. Fresh skin, big smiles!
Next comes the refreshing and purifying Dermalogica All Over Toner. This cool, spritzing toner helps control the excess oil many teenagers battle with and also helps eliminate breakouts on the face and body. Twelve gentle botanicals are used in this product to refresh, energise and revive delicate, teenage skin.
Your teen might think a moisturiser is the last thing they need, but it is a vital part of caring for skin at any age. The amazing Dermalogica Matte Moisturiser SPF15 is an oil absorbing moisturiser with SPF and a must have for teenagers with acne. Willow Bark provides a natural source of Salicylic Acid and African Whitewood Bark Extract is an anti-inflammatory with healthy antioxidant and sebum-regulating properties. Silicones soothe the skin and stops if from drying out, which is kind of key to this programme. White Birch Extract has both antiseptic and soothing
properties to help the skin healing and added Burdock Root Extract hydrate and calm the skin.
We all know that spots can strike at anytime and this is where the Dermalogica Emergency Spot Fix comes into play. This is a potent topical spot treatment that can be put into a school or gym bag and used at anytime. The strong but gentle formula is designed to kill the bacteria that cause breakouts directly in the pore, and it really does work. For best results, you simply apply a small amount of spot treatment to the breakout, with finger or cotton swab, and allow it to dry and sink in. It can be applied every 6 to 8 hours as needed and we also suggest using at the first sign of a break out to stop the bacteria in the follicle advancing and to help clear and soothe the skin.
Whilst all of our prices are competitive, we understand that buying the whole set can be a gamble, so why not start with the Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Kit? This set contains five key products to get your teen started and once their skin is happy and under control, we think you’ll be back for more.
