Something which seems to be really common with acne sufferers is that their skin is actually much better during the Spring and Summer than it is in Autumn and Winter. This is usually to do with a number of factors, such as the fact that sun exposure seems to help and central heating seems to exacerbate things. With Autumn setting in and Winter not far off, we thought we’d take a look at some of our most effective acne-fighting products to help you at this time of year:
Exfoliating the face and keeping your pores clear of dead cells and excess sebum is essential in the fight against acne, which is why this pore control scrub from Dermalogica should be one the most important in our bathroom cabinet. It will help to scrub away clogging dead skin cells with gentle microbeads and purify your skin with natural earth clays that soak up excess oil, leaving your skin calmed and clearer.
Skin which is prone to acne often looks oily but is actually overproducing sebum because of underlying dryness, so rebalancing with a good moisturiser can help. This cream from Elemis not only adds essential moisture but also contains anti-inflammatory ingredients which rebalances inflamed or hormonal skin conditions and provides soothing relief with protection.
We often say that night-time is skincare time as we’re able to use stronger, more targeted products on our faces as we sleep, which is exactly why Dermalogica developed this gel. The treatment is designed to help clear skin congestion and help prevent future breakouts and is suitable for acneic and breakout-prone skin.
This multi-functional resurfacing solution from Jan Marini utilizes a combination of three proven acids for a broad range of benefits. It will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, redness, acne scarring, large pores and uneven texture. As well as addressing the appearance of multiple skin concerns including acne, pigmentation, rosacea and fine lines and wrinkles, it also provides dramatically softer, smoother, more luminous and hydrated looking skin.
This product from the Dermalogica Clear Start range is a little bit of magic in a bottle, working on the skin in just 15 minutes. The formula is designed to kill bacteria and stop it from reproducing and calms irritation, soothes dryness and balances the skin’s natural microbiome.
