Many of us tend to believe that the summer climate should have a beneficial effect on our complexion; and yet, this is not always true. For some of us, the increased temperatures can have the unwelcome effect of causing our skin to produce more sebum, creating the perfect environment for bacteria to proliferate. Spots and blackheads become more frequent, which can be frustrating and upsetting.
If you are suffering from worsening breakouts during the summer months, make sure you get on top of the problem quickly. Try using Dermalogica’s Overnight Clearing Gel before you go to bed in order to clear skin congestion as well as prevent more breakouts. This is an effective gel, targeting the factors that combine to cause spots:
- Salicylic Acid sloughs away the cells that clog follicles in order to reduce the likelihood of new breakouts.
- Niacinamide, Biotin, Zinc Gluconate, Yeast Extract, Caffeine and Nordihydroguaiaretic Acid inhibit excessive sebaceous production, purify and help calm irritation.
- Antiseptic Tea Tree Oil and Rosemary reduce bacteria while Spirea Ulmaria Extract stimulates the skin’s natural anti-bacterial agents.
- Green Tea calms and Hyaluronic Acid hydrates.
Runner-up in Company’s Beauty Awards 2012 in the category Best Spot Treatment, this gel will help get those summer breakouts under control.
