Advertorial: Solution Based Skincare Supporting Acne Sufferers

07 Jun 2023

From moderate to severe acne, SkinCeuticals has launched two new protocols supporting patients’ acne needs in time for Acne Awareness Month this June

SkinCeuticals launched into the advanced professional skincare field in 1994, and has since become a pioneer within the skincare industry and a household name for consumer ‘skintellectuals’ across the globe.

Known for their innovation-led products and leading antioxidant formulas, SkinCeuticals provides multi-faceted solutions for a variety of skincare concerns, including acne and blemish-prone skin.

Acne is a common skin condition that affects 95% of people in England at some point in their lives.1 A sometimes life-altering condition, acne-prone patients can be affected in many different ways, from severe painful pimples and redness to more moderate blemishes, hyperpigmentation and scars.

SkinCeuticals has created two new protocols – one for active and severe acne, and another for moderate acne and hyperpigmentation sufferers – as they know not all patients fit one typical approach when it comes to their skin conditions.

Curated with three staple products, the consultant dermatologist-approved protocols integrate a variety of antioxidant ingredients, combined within just two regimes, that tackle acne-prone skin. Blending award-winning Phyto A+ Brightening Treatment – a brightening moisturiser which soothes and corrects out-of-balance skin, Silymarin CF – an antioxidant serum which protects against free radicals, blemishes and oil oxidation, and Blemish + Age Defense – a first-to-market formulation which reduces the appearance of uneven skin tone and the formation of acne and clogged pores.

Practitioner perspective

Recommended by the professionals, aesthetic practitioner Dr Ana Mansouri, cosmetic doctor and medical director at The Skin Clinic Birmingham, said, “Breakout-prone skin often suffers from overactive oil production as well as oil oxidation which leads to comedone formation, acne and pigmentation problems. Silymarin CF is the ideal choice to control all of these underlying processes while also combating signs of ageing.

The addition of salicylic acid (lipid-soluble exfoliant) to the well-known anti-ageing and brightening antioxidant power couple that is vitamin C + Ferulic acid, specifically targets overactive sebaceous glands and thereby unclogs pores and provides a smoother complexion.”
