New Year, New Skin

Okay, so hopefully now you’ve at least thought about getting rid of all the crap that sullies the good name of beauty and are ready to start afresh.
Well, are you ready to buy some more stuff anyway?

Before we can start on anything crazy like make up or styling products, we have to get the foundations right. No, I don’t even mean foundation, I mean your actual skin. Very few people have such flawless complexions that they don’t need any help, honest. Everyone’s either a wee bit dry, a bit oily or you know, dog rough. So, starting with the biggest pain in the jacksy first, let’s tackle adult acne. Yeah, sorry, there’s no way to make it funny.

From a straw poll of everyone I know, hands down, the best range to tackle this is in fact not Clearasil or Clean&Clear but Dermalogica Medi-Bac. Seriously kids, if you’re still suffering when you’re in full time employment (and you didn’t skip out on school to take up a trainee managerial position at McDonalds) then you need to take care of this with some good quality, effective skin care. The Overnight Clearing Gel can be found at the back of many bathroom cabinets, mainly because it’s seven different kinds of awesome. Honestly, if you EVER suffer from breakouts, you need this stuff. I’m going to quote our friends at Dermalogica directly because I don’t have a hope in hell of explaining it to you myself…

Overnight Clearing Gel (£34.00) – for congested and breakout-prone skin – an overnight treatment gel which helps clear skin, calm inflammation and prevent future breakouts by reducing excess sebum, removing impaction plugs and eliminating bacteria. Salicylic acid sloughs off pore-clogging skin cells to inhibit development of further breakouts whilst niacinamide and biotin combine with zinc gluconate, yeast extract, caffeine and nordihydroguaiaretic acid to inhibit overactive sebaceous gland activity, purify to promote skin clarity and help calm irritation brought on by breakouts. Also includes green tea to soothe and hyaluronic acid to hydrate.

Doesn’t that sound really really effective?
I like the use of the word ‘slough’.
So, if you’ve got bad acne, get the whole range here. If it’s a just a few spots because you’re hormonal/been burning the candle from every possible angle, get the Overnight Clearing Gel. Or even better, go get a Dermalogica facial and have the therapist tell you what you need. They’re good people.http://0
