Humans are more stressed than they’ve ever been and those increased stress levels are manifesting on our faces. Yep, we’re talking about acne. A combination of everyday stressors – workload, social life and traffic fines (just us?) – and environmental shifts means more breakouts and accelerated ageing.
Thankfully, the minds behind revolutionary skincare brand Dermalogica recognised that our skincare regime has to keep up with our hectic lifestyle, and created a range to keep premature ageing and breakouts at bay while we continue to be the #girlbosses we are.
First up: The NEW AGE Bright Clearing Serum. It uses Salicylic Acid, White Shiitake Mushrooms and Niacinamide to exfoliate your skin and brighten your complexion, and accelerates cell turnover to reduce signs of ageing. Its secret weapon are phytoactives from the Resurrection Plant – an intelligent plant that’s known for their ability to survive extreme dehydration.
Everything’s better in pairs, right? So it only makes sense that Dermologica created an AGE Bright Spot Fader to keep angry breakouts under control and reduce the appearance of scars (from those times you caved and tried to tackle pimples by yourself).
The Active Clearing collection also includes a Clearing Skin Wash to prep your skin for the rest of your routine, a pore-clearing Sebum Clearing Masque, an Overnight Clearing Gel and an Oil-Free Matte SPF – because you should still be wearing sunscreen even though it’s winter. It looks like clearer skin will be the only New Year’s resolution we stick to.
You can get your hands on the Active Clearing range at authorised Dermalogica spas, salons and skin care centres or online here.
