    If you’re worried about acne flare-ups in the sun, there are ways to deal with them…

    At long last your summer holiday’s nearly here, and wherever you’re off to it’s important to revel in the joys of life, off-duty. Time to do whatever makes you happy and dance to your own tune.

    If, however, you are one of the 1.3 million adults* who suffer from acne, you can’t help dreading the change in routine and climate that can make your skin a whole lot worse. Heat, sun and greasy sun creams can encourage acne-prone skin to produce more oil – blocking pores and causing eruptions. Late nights and not sticking to your usual cleansing routine can also contribute to flare-ups.

    Best face forward

    It’s time you gave your skin the chance to look its best by switching to a groundbreaking new treatment – Dermalex Acne Treatment. Its breakthrough technology, MEC4 complex, is clinically proven to help treat mild to severe acne – 76% of users saw reduced symptoms and 50% fewer spots when used twice a day over four weeks.**

    Better still, unlike some treatments, which can cause dryness, Dermalex Acne Treatment hydrates the skin to form a protective barrier. And you’ve no need to worry, as it’s skin-friendly and won’t make your skin more sensitive in the sun, or stain your clothes.

    Your holiday checklist
    • Pack enough Dermalex Acne Treatment to see you through your trip.
    • Take a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15, making sure that it’s non-comedogenic (non-pore-blocking), and choose make-up with this in mind too.
    • Stick to a good cleansing routine, using your regular cleanser for acne-prone skin twice daily and apply Dermalex Acne Treatment afterwards. Now you’ll definitely be ready to enjoy your holiday to the full!
