49% of women say their stress has increased in the past 5 years. When you're feeling pressure, your skin shows it. With stress, you get acne. With Acne comes skin damage and aging and that add even more to your never-ending to-do list.
Below are the ingredients that are proven to effectively solve the Acne & Aging problem. So when looking for acne & aging targeted products, make sure they have these following ingredient boosters.
1/ RETINOL (vitamin A)
When it comes to reversing the signs of skin aging, Retinol is hands down the industry's gold standard ingredient. It has the power to help accelerate skin renewal and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and age spots for firmer, smoother and more evenly-toned skin.
At Dermalogica, we use advanced microencapsulation technology to help stabilize Retinol and ensure its maximum potency. This approach protects it from degrading as soon as it is exposed, enabling it to deliver superior results.
Microencapsulated Retinol also creates an invisible shield on the skin's surface to help reduce moisture loss, which is critical for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
2/ SALICYLIC ACID (BHA)
Salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy-acid that is commonly used to treat acne. Salicylic acid is oil loving! It is derived from willow tree bark and can help to reduce excess sebum in the skin. Its anti-inflammatory and exfoliant properties are perfect for oily and acne prone skin types. In addition to helping regulate and balance out oil production, it can also help to unclog pores. It dives deep into the pores to pull out dirt, oil and bacteria, which is ideal in managing blackheads and breakouts.
3/ PHYTO LIPIDS
Lipids are skin’s natural fats. They are essential components of skin and play a crucial role in maintaining the strength of the skin’s protective barrier, which holds moisture, protects the skin from damage and keeps dirt and impurities out. They also aid the skin’s natural repair process.
With that being said, Phyto Lipids play an important role in keeping your skin healthy as it nourishes skin's natural barrier which prevent irritation & moisture loss.
Dermalogica offers the ultimate solution booster that contains all 3 of these powerful ingredients: Retinol Clearing Oil.
