Speak to a skin health professional about getting a proper skin assessment performed. Dermalogica offer a free FaceMapping Skin Analysis which examines the 14 unique zones of your face and its needs. A skin therapist may also instruct that you might need to speak to a Dermatologist if you acne is moderate to severe for specialised treatment. Milder acne can be managed at home with products specifically targeted towards acne.
Salicylic acid is type of beta hydroxyl acid, an ingredient commonly used in acne treatments. Salicylic acid is related to aspirin and originates from willow bark. Some people with sensitivity to aspirin may find they are unable to tolerate salicylic acid, so it is wise to patch test a product before using.
Salicylic acid exfoliates the skin and has antimicrobial properties. By exfoliating away surface cells, we can prevent clogged pores, trapped bacteria and future breakouts.
Melaleuca oil, also known as Tea Tree, comes from an Australian native plant. In microbiological studies, tea tree has been shown to effectively kill skin flora such as staphylococcal aureus. Irritation may occur when applying the pure essential oil to delicate skin, particularly the face and décolletage zones.
Using a mix of products that help combat acne on multiple levels is important by: clearing away excess sebum, controlling bacteria, protecting the skin and decreasing inflammation. Other ingredients that are commonly found in Dermalogica’s acne targeted products include:
