Our Dermalogica Essentials For Acne-Prone, Sensitive Skin
DermalogicaUltracalming Cleanser, £39
For A Gentle Cleanse
One of the biggest lessons I’ve learnt over the years is not to overwork my skin. Having spent years using harsh, beady scrubs that often exacerbated the problem, I now look to gentler formulas. This cleanser has been a staple in my routine for over five years. The gel-like cream not only helps to thoroughly cleanse my skin morning and night, but it also calms and soothes
DermalogicaAgebright Spot Fader, N/A
For Curbing Breakouts
If there’s one thing I can rely on to ease an under-the-skin spot, it’s this. Packed with salicylic acid, which is the go-to ingredient for acne-prone skin, this gel helps to clear blemishes and fade post-breakout marks too. A little goes a long way and it’s been a complete saviour for me on countless occasions.
DermalogicaInvisible Defense SPF 30, £49
For Daily Protection
I’ve always struggled to find an SPF that protects without irritating my sensitive, acne-prone skin. This has often meant I’d go without. Thankfully, this weightless formula offers SPF30 protection, while green tea and a bio-active mushroom complex helps to ease redness and inflammation. As expected from the name, it has an invisible finish so it’s perfect all for skin tones.
DermalogicaCalm Water Gel, £55
For Much Needed Hydration
Finding a moisturiser for my oily skin was also a challenge until I discovered this weightless gel. The formula locks in moisture without feeling heavy or leaving any greasiness. Regardless of your skin type, this is a great product for the summer months as it’s cooling and sits seamlessly under makeup.
DermalogicaRetinol Clearing Oil, £85
For Overnight Results
This is the product that’s made the biggest difference to my skin. The high-performance oil combines the breakout-clearing benefits of salicylic acid and the anti-ageing powers of retinol to smooth and clear your skin overnight. It’s been expertly formulated to ensure no irritation or dryness – something I can definitely vouch for.
DermalogicaBarrier Repair, £49
For SOS Moments
With the help of oat, evening primrose and vitamin C and E, this velvety balm soothes stressed-out skin and restores your skin’s barrier. I apply a thin layer all over or spot-treat irritated areas. It’s a must-have all year round, especially on cold, windy days and on my annual ski trip.
