Dermalogica Clear Start
Dermalogica Clear Start at last a line of products geared up for young skin. Clear Start Aimed at teenagers and early 20’s to help control their breakouts!!
Many factors contribute to skin problems, hormones, stress, genetics, current regimes.
I personally love these products I have a lot of clients who are having salon treatments with me but don’t know what to give their kids to use. I have tried them myself so I know without doubt they are easy, effective and the fizz mask is fun to use.
These products are geared up for a younger skin because they have more rampant breakouts. Yes they have the quicker cell turnover so when your older and have an acneic breakout it takes much longer for the redness to subside and the scarring to heal. The wash has ingredients such as salycilic acid in which will go down into the follicle and help dissolve the traces of oil.
Remembering spots thrive in an environment where there is no oxygen, we then want to keep the pores clean, open, using the booster will kill the acne bacteria in 15 mins. This is an essential product to use straight after the wash morning and night. Whether you choose to apply a thin layer all over or just on the areas of concern.
Its also imperitive to moisturise. Just because you have an oily skin or breakouts doesn’t mean you forget this step. The matt moisturiser is very popular with the girls as they don’t want a shiny skin especially under foundation.
The fizz mask is fun and great used on breakout areas or where your pores feel raised and bumpy and may be beginning to turn into a blackhead. Let it fizz for 5 mins or so and just wash off.
A good skin care regime will make all your skin feel brighter and fresher, spots will feel less painful. Blocked pores will less likely turn into blackheads.
For those who are on medication from the doctor you can still use these products at home. The hydrating lotion will stop your skin feeling tight or dry which can be a side effect from some medication but also still soothes any breakouts.
We do 2 salon treatments that also help acne sufferes.
Oxygen Therapy £55
This is suitable for any age, using a wand and an oxygen serum we gently glide over the skin saturating it with oxygen to help heal, rejuvenate and kill that bacteria!
Microdermabrasion and Oxygen Therapy £75
You need to be 16 to have this treatment but boy this is a fantastic combo!
Microdermabrasion (MDA) tiny diamond shaped crystals tumble across the skin, chip off the dead skin and are hoovered off. This process also helps to left out the debris (or crap… not a technical term but if you know me I like to speak in simple terms :)) out of your skin , this includes dead skin, oil, blackheads etc. Then your freshly smoothed skin is blasted with the oxygen to plump, rejuvenate and suffocate the acne bacteria. Remember oily skin can produce up to 5 times more dead skin so you have to work harder to keep it clean and fresh looking.
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! Please don’t ever tell me that you use wipes, you will have time to give me the excuse that you only take your eye makeup off with them and then you wash properly.
Try not to fall into the trap of covering your face in thick foundation, mentioning no famous brands, we recommend mineral base so your skin can breathe and your not adding to the problem. Some of those foundations out there are a nightmare to get off you cant remove them properly and staying in your hairline that isn’t something you really need.

In a nutshell these products are great, as are salon treatments. Not every product on the shelves of the supermarket is. Buying online is fine if you know what you want but that is why we have beauty salons. We advise you and see results, this is what makes my job so rewarding.
My son is 11, he has early start off hormonal skin. He is a nightmare to get in the bath let alone give him a skincare regime, I know its hard work for us mums (or dads) but even if I get him with the Fizz mask 3 times a week its better than letting things build up.
Not just for the kids!!! I use this mask and my bestest friend in the world uses the wash, booster and fizz mask. She suffers from rosacea flare ups she is 45 and it has worked wonders for her skin too. Even with me nagging her she wasn’t always good with her skincare product choice. I have to police what she is using but because she has had results she is now a good girl.
Thank you for reading 🙂
As you can tell I’m passionate about my job and rather than just cut and paste a generic post from dermalogica its straight from me.
Not as many fancy words but the truth in my eyes!
We don’t stock all dermalogica but these are great xxx
