Let’s start with the basics…
Why does my skin break out?
During adolescence we produce more Androgen. This makes oil glands grow and produce more sebum. That excess oil can mix with skin cells and clump together forming a plug that gets infected with bacteria, swells and becomes a breakout.
Why is my skin oily?
1 part overactive sebaceous glands and 1 part overactive hormones = a formula for oil-loaded pores. If that oil doesn’t mix with skin cells to become a breakout then it spills out onto your skins surface giving an oily skin.
The golden rule of skin care..
Be nice to your skin and it will behave better in the future.
Regular Clear start facials and homecare which is designed for teenagers will take a three level approach to clear breakouts through combination therapy, combining the best of natures botanicals and the science of skin care. Dermalogica formulas combine medicated ingredients with skin soothing botanicals – which means they are tough on breakouts, but kind to your skin. Our facial deliver results and those results speak for themselves .
