Before growing into adulthood, you imagine it as a utopia of freedom, independence and fun. Unfortunately, this is often entirely not the case with the many responsibilities and anxieties that come with growing older. Adulthood is hard enough already without adult acne as an added stress.
While adult acne occurs in both sexes, it is most common in women due to the many hormonal changes that occur. However, hormones aren’t the only culprit: chronic stress, lifestyle choices, and environmental factors can also cause breakouts. There is no shortage of acne treatments on the market, but it can be confusing to rummage through them all to find which is most suitable for your maturing and acne-prone skin.
Adolescent acne occurs largely due to puberty, but younger skin has a faster cell turnover rate, so it can recover much quicker from breakouts. Adult skin is much less resilient to environmental damage, and it tends to be sensitive, dehydrated, and prone to pigmentation- all of which lead to early signs of ageing. With these many factors, tackling adult acne is a whole other beast, and common treatments for teenage skin will often irritate the skin further.
Introducing Dermalogica Active Clearing for Adult Acne
At k:SPA we offer Dermalogica’s new line of products, Active Clearing. This line is specifically formulated to target acne, as well as the signs of ageing for the ultimate, multi-tasking treatment. Where taming teenage acne focuses on cleansing and oil control, treating adult acne requires a more fastidious approach.
Active Clearing combines effective acne-fighting ingredients with moisturizing, anti-ageing solutions to combat the wear and tear. Powerful, professional ingredients like Salicylic and Glycolic Acids remove dead skin cells, excess oil, and dirt without overdrying the skin, and Thymol and Terpineol control acne causing bacteria. To combat the signs of ageing, Niacinamide and Hexylresorcinol help to balance uneven skin tone, and Retinol is utilised to combat wrinkles and fine lines. Banded together, they are a robust, fighting force against breakouts and signs of ageing for a clear and youthful complexion.
