SIGNS OF SKIN AGEING
Wrinkles, altered pigmentation, loss of skin tone…we associate these changes with skin ageing. You can treat the signs of skin ageing you see, and the triggers behind skin ageing before they start!
A proactive approach to managing skin ageing triggers can keep skin smoother, firmer and healthier – for longer.
Age-related skin changes are the result of genetically-programmed changes (intrinsic factors) and environmental wear-and-tear on the skin (extrinsic factors). While both influence the skin’s structure and function, extrinsic factors cause more pronounced changes.
mediBac clearing® is Dermalogica’s solution to adult acne.
Clearer skin starts now: bring the four contributing factors of acne under control.
The MediBac Clearing® system works to treat, clear and prevent adult acne while addressing the needs of adult skin. Most products and treatments for acne are designed for teenage skin, making them too harsh and irritating for adult acne sufferers. MediBac Clearing® controls acne without compromising skin’s integrity, which means skin is clearer and healthier.
How it works
Dermalogica’s MediBac Clearing® system is formulated specifically to treat adult acne. Each product, with its unique acne-fighting and clearing ingredients, is designed to be layered upon the skin to provide around-the-clock, maximum control of the main factors that contribute to acne.
The Clear Start range is Dermalogica's answer to addressing pimples and breakouts and helping teenagers to achieve clean and clear skin!
Clear Start™ was created by the skin health experts at Dermalogica, the brand that’s been changing the face of skin care for more than 25 years. It became clear that no one was addressing the needs of teens – not only with products that get results, but also with the education they need – when Dermalogica Founder Jane Wurwand’s own daughters entered their teenage years.
Skin care product choices available to teens may be ample, but they aren’t good choices. Products for teens often contain harsh and inexpensive ingredients to strip the skin of oil, and are filled with artificial fragrances and colours – all things that can irritate and strip oil from skin, causing more problems than you started with!
Tightness and dryness are the telltale signs of dry and dehydrated skin.
But, these two conditions with similar symptoms have very different triggers at a cellular level. Learn the difference and find your products for hydrated, healthier skin.
Dry skin, or alipoid skin, generally refers to skin that is lacking in oil. Dehydrated skin is characterised by lack of moisture (water) in the Stratum Corneum. This explains why even oily skin can experience dehydration. As mentioned, dehydration is a lack of water, not oil. This means sebaceous oil activity can still be normal or even overactive in dehydrated skin.
When it comes to oily skin, it’s all about genetics.
But, when it comes to controlling excess oiliness and maintaining a matte finish, it’s all about a daily regimen with the right products for your skin.
Overactive sebaceous glands are the culprit of oily skin. This condition isn’t just for teens: oiliness can be triggered by genetics and hormone fluctuations, making even adults susceptible to excess oiliness and shine.
Research indicates that age spots contribute to the appearance of skin ageing as much as a wrinkle.
Hyperpigmentation shows on the skin in the form of brown spots (also referred to as age spots) and can cause an uneven, mottled skin tone. Hyperpigmentation can be the result of daylight exposure, endocrine (hormonal) factors and changes, usage of prescription drugs and/or wound healing when the skin has been damaged. No matter how it is triggered, hyperpigmentation shows on skin in the form of brown spots (also referred to as age spots) and can cause an uneven, mottled skin tone.
Those looking to brighten skin often run into two different and disappointing scenarios: the products don’t deliver results as promised, or skin health suffers at the cost of brightening results. Treating hyperpigmentation without regard for skin health can lead to sensitivity, irritation, photodamage, exposure to potentially dangerous agents and premature ageing.
Dedicated to results without compromising skin health, Dermalogica extensively researched the latest ingredient technology, searching for ingredients that would safely go beyond minimising the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
This research has led to the development of PowerBright TRx, the only system that rapidly delivers visible brightening and improved skin tone while improving skin health. PowerBright TRx ensures you can treat your hyperpigmentation safely, without worrying about suffering from irritation or damage that can lead to premature ageing.
SENSITIVITY & REDNESS
Frustrating flare-ups and redness signal inflammation and a damaged barrier layer. New scientific research has unearthed a new trigger behind sensitised skin, as well as powerful ingredients for recovery and relief.
Millions of people perceive their skin as sensitive. The American Academy of Dermatology reports that 50% of the United States population experience some form of sensitive skin. Globally, it is of increasing concern, especially among women. In Europe, the United States and Japan, the prevalence of sensitive skin is about 50% in women and 30% in men, with younger adults reporting more sensitivity than older adults.
