June is National Acne Awareness month and Dermalogica want people everywhere to feel confident with the skin they have. So, the team at Dermalogica have put together some facts and tips for those struggling with the aggravating skin condition. Acne is super common and can affect people at different stages of their life, not just teenagers! The key to tackling it is education. A common misconception is that the sun can help dry blemishes out and clear congestion when the opposite is true. The sun and tanning beds have been proven to increase the skins oil production and contribute to the acne cycle. And while washing our faces twice daily and double cleansing is so important there is also such thing as washing your face too much! Over washing can cause irritation and can disturb the skin’s natural ability to produce the correct amount of oil it needs to stay healthy. Acne is a completely normal and common condition so love the skin you are in!
Below are some of Dermalogica’s best products from their Active Clearing Range, to help achieve healthy, glowing, clear skin.
