Introducing the new Active Clay Cleanser from Dermalogica, a dual-action, mineral-rich clay and charcoal formula that actively cleanses and purifies to balance oily skin. We caught up with Dermalogica’s Education Executive Victoria Schofield to find out more.
The power of prebiotics
If you have oily skin, you probably like your skin to feel squeaky clean after cleansing. The problem is that many cleansers for oily skin over strip and dry out the skin causing an imbalance in good bacteria and moisture levels. This can lead to barrier deficiencies, increased oil production and breakouts. A viscous cycle that can be hard to break!
To balance oily skin, addressing the microbiome can be very beneficial. Prebiotics are the ‘food’ for the living organisms on the skin, helping the skin’s ‘good’ bacteria to flourish and fighting off the ‘bad’. The new Active Clay Cleanser is powered by skin balancing
Balance, purify and protect.
Over cleansing oily skin can lead to it feeling tight, looking flaky and breaking out. Active Clay Cleanser is pH balanced to the skin so it won’t strip your natural moisture and leaves skin feeling soft and comfortable. Kaolin Clay and Activated Binchotan Charcoal removes excess oil and impurities leaving skin purified and refreshed. Botanical lipids and Murumuru Seed work to protect the skin’s natural lipid barrier whilst a complex of Citrus, Aloe and Broccoli Extract boosts a healthy microbiome.
How to use
Start your Dermalogica double cleanse with PreCleanse to melt through makeup, dirt and pollutants. Follow with a blueberry sized amount of Active Clay Cleanser on damp skin, working in circular movements, focussing on areas of excess oil and congestion. Rinse with warm water. Pro tip! Leave the cleanser on for a few minutes to allow the clay and charcoal to work a little deeper for an intensive cleanse. Follow with Multi Active Toner for a layer of light hydration and oil free Active Moist to moisturise and protect.
