Even though they are way past their teenage years, some people still deal with the skin that is quite oily and shiny at times, and pimples that still appear. If you are one of them, don’t worry! You are not the only adult struggling with unclean skin, however using proper skin care will help beyond belief.
Dermalogica is a skin care product line that embraces both cosmetic and pharmaceutical elements. Their products are free of common irritants including SD alcohol, lanolin, mineral oil and artificial colors and fragrance. Every single ingredient works towards building skin health.
I was so excited to hear about the Dermalogica’s special line of products for adult acne skin called mediBac Clearing, so I had to put them to the test. These are products that will help control sebum production and prevent impurities. Here is a quick guide how a well-thought-out skin care routine has transformed my skin.
Clean, clean, clean!
It is very important to use a good cleanser that is made for unclean skin. Look for products without oil and labeled with non-comedogenic, which means it does not clog pores. Dermalogica mediBac Clearing Skin Wash foams a lot, and I like that. I have used it over a certain period of time, every morning and evening, and I find it really good. Only a tiny amount of product is used, so it will last for a very long time. Rinse your skin twice, and you will be sure it will be completely clean and free of all makeup.
After cleansing, it is important to moisturize the skin, but if your skin is oily it is extremely important that you use a cream that does not make your skin look shiny. I am always on the lookout for good mattifying skin creams, and just like the Dermalogica mediBac range. In the evening I used Overnight Clearing Gel, a jelly that works overnight and fights impurities. It contains tea tree oil, which has an antiseptic and soothing effect on the skin. My skin is still a little oily when I get up in the morning, but no acnes in sight.
As a day cream, I use Oil Free Matte, a moisturizer that helps to keep the skin hydrated all day, and also has spf 30. This is an amazing product, as it both moisturizes and mats the skin, and works perfectly under makeup. I also really like that both skin creams are in travel-sized 50 ml bottles, so you can take them wherever you go.
Once or twice a week I exfoliate the skin, to clean the skin deeper than a cleanser, by using a peel or scrub. These deep cleansers add moisture while effectively removing dead skin cells. Also, a gentle scrub opens and cleans your pores, so you get a healthier, smoother and glowing skin.
I usually do this in the evening, and then put on a face mask. A mask improves skin and provides maximum moisture. Now there are tons of different face masks, and they come in various forms such as sheet mask, peel-off, and traditional cream masks. They can be used anywhere from 5 minutes to overnight. This is a nice extra step that will add a relaxing effect to your beauty routine.
I definitely recommend the Dermalogica mediBac Clearing series to anyone struggling with oily and unclean skin. If you have really big problems with acne I strongly recommend that you go to a dermatologist, they can help you more than a good skin care line only.
