Being a teenager can be fun, boring, exciting, exhausting and everything in between. Add acne into the mix and that can be one thing too many to deal with. Selfies need to be filtered, make up has to be maxed out and if a date is coming up, it might be cancelled for fear of ridicule or rejection.
Clear Start by Dermalogica is a range of reasonable, easy to use products made for teenage skin and most importantly, they work.
As with any skincare routine, you need to cleanse and this is where the Dermalogica Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash comes in. Intended to be used morning and night, this cleans and purifies skin without stripping away the delicate, much-needed natural oils. Orange Peel and Tea Tree oils energise and refresh the skin while Salicylic Acid takes way dead skin cells and trapped oil so future breakouts are managed. African Whitewood Bark Extract and Tea Tree Oil are both anti-inflammatories and work together to deal with bacteria and ease redness and inflammation. Meadowsweet protects against excess sebum production so even after the first use, skin feels soft and soothed rather than sore and angry.
Toning in the teenage years might seem a but much but it works and you are never too young to get into good habits. The Dermalogica All Over Toner is a cool, refreshing spritzing toner that is packed with gentle botanical extracts which refresh, energise and revive the skin. The easily absorbed tonic can be used on the face and neck as well as on any parts of the body where spots occur. Regular application can help control excess oil and eliminate breakouts as well as refresh and rehydrate the skin.
The next step is to moisuturise and this is where the Dermalogica Matte Moisturiser SPF15 comes into play. Thanks to a blend of oil-absorbing ingredients that clean up surface shine, this offers TLC and hydration where it is most needed. White Birch Extract contains the natural antiseptic that soothes and heals irritations while Burdock Root Extract helps hydrate and calm the skin so it is left feeling rested. The other great thing with this cream is that it has a broad-spectrum sunscreen that blocks damaging UVA and UVB radiation, something we all need to consider and the teenage years are a good time to start.
We have all been there when spot has appeared from nowhere, and for this you need the Dermalogica Emergency Spot Fix. Sounds dramatic, but this topical formula kills bacteria that is found deep in the pores so breakouts are stopped, fast. This is ideally used at the first sign of a spot and we suggest a small amount is applied, before moisturising, with a clean finger-tip or cotton bud, and make sure it dries before any other creams or make up are used.
If these products look good but you don’t want to splash cash if you aren’t 100% sure, why not try the Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Kit? This comes with five key products to get things started and we think once your teen tries them, you’ll be back for more.
