Got Zits? Dermalogica Introduces Clear Start

August 20, 2013 • Beauty, Fashion Blog

Clear_StartThese days I’m a lot more concerned about wrinkles than acne, but there was a time when my breakouts ruled my life. I would actually plan my social life around my skin in those days. So I completely empathize with teens and young adults who are embarrassed by their breakouts. Now one of my favorite skincare lines, has launched a new skin care line for teens and young adults developed to both prevent and treat symptoms of mild to moderate acne. Introducing Dermalogica Clear Start.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology (, acne is the most common skin disorder in the USA, affecting 40 – 50 million Americans. For many people, acne begins during the teen years: the AAD states that by the mid-teens, more than 40% of adolescents have acne, often severe enough to require medical attention.

“Body and psyche are always intertwined, and this crossover feels especially intense during adolescence in particular. Acne’s scars are deeply felt on the soul as well as on the skin, so we developed Clear Start to intercept acne before the symptoms escalate, and also to teach young adults, teens and even younger tweens healthy skin care habits,” states Jane Wurwand, Founder and Chief Visionary for Dermalogica and Clear Start.
