Acne is often associated with youth, but even adults well beyond their teen years can suffer from it.
Sometimes, it’s believed that people get acne or pimples because they don’t cleanse their skin well enough. But this is a misunderstanding – while washing your face is very important, it’s often not enough on its own to improve skin clarity. As well as cleansing, acne-prone adults may need, regular exfoliation, clearing peels and facials. Acne breakouts can lead to skin redness or blotchiness and treatments may be required to reduce these skin effects.
Some people are unlucky enough to develop acne just as their skin is showing signs of fine lines or wrinkles. This means they need a skincare routine that is able to effectively treat acne, whilst also combatting the first signs of ageing to achieve the skin clarity and smoothness they are after.
This is where HydroPeptide’s Anti-Wrinkle + Clarify Collection comes in.
HydroPeptide’s Anti-Wrinkle + Clarify Solution Range:
A study of the effectiveness of HydroPeptide’s Clarify Collection – an adult acne solution combined with anti-ageing technology – showed visible improvements in overall skin health for 19 of the 20 subjects studied.
The subjects, with an average age of 32, all suffered from mild or moderate levels of acne at the beginning of the study, while some suffered from skin redness and most were concerned about wrinkles.
Three categories of skin conditions were tested – blemishes and acne-marking, skin redness and fine lines or wrinkles.
The acne category was further broken down into two grades, Grade 1 being a few pimples or blackheads and Grade 2 being multiple blemishes and / or some skin redness or inflammation.
The four-step skin regime was trialled for eight weeks. The products used included cleanser, toner, spot corrector and solar protection.
The study results
The study participants reported positive results after using the range of products:
- Category 1 (acne) – 85% reduction in the severity and number of blemishes.
- Category 2 (redness) – decreases in redness experienced by all the subjects that had suffered from it at baseline.
- Category 3 (fine lines) – 90% reported that their skin was firmer after treatment.
90% also reported that the treatments worked without causing any dryness or irritation.
As the study results show, having skin clarity is about much more than just cleansing your face. If you’d like to find out more about how our targeted skin care solutions can help tackle signs of ageing as well as acne and irritation, contact us.
