Two problems, one solution
Adult acne is on the rise, with women in their 30’s, 40’s and 50’s experiencing breakouts and challenged with clearing their skin whilst tackling skin ageing. If you reach for spot treatments for teens,chances are your skin ends up in a worse state. Dermalogica’s Active Clearing formulas harness the best of nature and science to control breakouts and reduce the appearance of related skin ageing. The new addition to the line, Retinol Clearing Oil is clinically proven to deliver clearer, more vibrant skin overnight.
It’s a first!
Retinol Clearing Oil is unique because it combines two powerhouse ingredients into one potent formula for the first time. Salicylic Acid to rapidly clear and prevent breakouts and potent, time-released Retinol to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyper pigmentation. You may have heard that you shouldn’t use Retinol and Salicylic Acid together as they are very active on the skin and could cause irritation. However, with Retinol Clearing Oil, the inclusion of time-released Retinyl Propionate offers a gentler approach and the soothing oil base mimics skin lipids helping to deliver the active ingredients deeper whilst trapping moisture.
An oil for breakouts?
Don’t be scared of using a face oil if you have breakouts. There are many types of oil, whilst some may cause breakouts, some can help keep skin clear. The soothing oil base of Retinol Clearing Oil is rich in phytoactive lipids from Argan, Rosehip Seed and Golden Jojoba oils that mimics our skins protective barrier lipids. These lightweight oils are non-pore clogging and are excellent at balancing oily skin and help prevent dehydration. This makes it ideal for breakout prone adult skin, which is often susceptible to dryness and sensitivity.
Clinically proven results
Our studies show Retinol Clearing Oil improves the appearance of breakouts and uneven skin tone overnight, along with increased smoothness and radiance. After 7 days, there’s and improvement of dark spots from breakouts with fine lines and wrinkles improved by 4 weeks of use.
Clears, renews, nourishes
To use Retinol Clearing Oil, use at night after cleansing and toning. Dispense 6-10 drops into your hands, smooth over your face and neck, avoiding the eye area and follow with your night time moisturiser.
