The holidays are a time of festivities and celebrations. It’s also a time when we tend to get a lot of visitors. However, not all visitors are welcome. We are talking about acne, of course! Acne breakouts tend to be a normal occurrence around the holiday times. But not to worry! DP Derm is here to help you avoid a holiday acne breakout and step into 2023 with clear, blemish-free skin.
When you think of acne prevention, DP Derm’s Anti-Acne Skin Set should be your first thought. This set comprises three acne-fighting products: CLR Foam Cleanser, CLR Lotion and CliniPrep antimicrobial spray. These three products are jam packed with powerful ingredients, like Salicylic Acid and Niacinamide, shown to reduce excess pore-clogging oils. This set will leave your skin feeling balanced and purified and is a convenient travel companion!
Did you know that airline travel increases your risk of an active breakout? The air inside an airplane is usually quite dry and tends to be irritating to our skin, particularly on long flights. If you already have dry skin, this dry air forces your pores to produce more oil to compensate.
If you have oily skin, the same is true and your pores might overcompensate on the oil production leading to blocked pores and, you guessed it, an active breakout. So what can you do about this? Well, the best way is to ensure that you board the plane with a clean and moisturized face. CliniPrep can help you keep your skin bacteria-free on-the-go, while the CLR Lotion will keep it moisturized.
CliniPrep is the perfect product to take anywhere the holiday season takes you. It provides skin disinfection without drying out the skin. All these benefits are due to its formula which is pH neutral, dermatologically tested, and contains no alcohol, parabens, or fragrances. CliniPrep will clear any existing bacteria, excess oils and dead skin cells from your pores - as well as surfaces like the airplane tray! Ingredients in this products also help to strengthen the skin’s barrier function, further protecting it.
CLR Foam Cleanser contains a selective blend of skin clarifying natural amino acids, fruit extracts and salts. This unique combination not only helps to regulate oil production and neutralize p-acne bacteria, but it also works to calm and soothe existing inflammation. It also makes for a great shaving cream!
CLR Lotion is the perfect follow up for the foam cleanser. It works by clearing and reducing the potential for future breakouts, while hydrating and balancing oil production. CLR Lotion is infused with our patented triple-weighted Hyaluronic Acid that effortlessly absorbs into the skin to promote maximum moisture infusion and long-lasting comfort.
It is important to note that while our Anti-Acne Skin Set is proven to help prevent acne breakouts over the holidays and throughout the year, your diet and lifestyle choices play a very significant role.
Sugar is a major culprit in activating acne breakouts. Whenever our blood sugar spikes, it causes inflammation throughout the body. Increased blood sugar also prompts our bodies to produce more sebum, an oily substance in your skin, clogging pores and causing pimples.
Both inflammation and excess sebum can lead to an acne breakout. It is essential to keep adequately hydrated and limit sugar intake in order to keep acne at bay!
