clearing skin wash

Foaming cleanser helps clear oils and bacteria on breakout-prone skin. Slough off impurities and dead skin cells with Salicylic Acid, a beta hydroxy acid that stimulates natural exfoliation to help clear clogged follicles and prevent future breakout activity. Naturally antiseptic extracts of Balm Mint, Eucalyptus and Tea Tree help eliminate breakout-causing bacteria and congestion as Menthol and Camphor help cool inflammation. Skin is left clean and prepped for optimal absorption of MediBac Clearing(r) treatment ingredients. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colors.

benefits

Follow with Skin Purifying Wipes and prescribed MediBac Clearing regimen.

Clearer skin starts now: bring the four contributing factors of acne under control.

The MediBac Clearing® system works to treat, clear and prevent adult acne while addressing the needs of adult skin. Most products and treatments for acne are designed for teenage skin, making them too harsh and irritating for adult acne sufferers. MediBac Clearing® controls acne without compromising skin’s integrity, which means skin is clearer and healthier.

how it works

Dermalogica’s MediBac Clearing® system is formulated specifically to treat adult acne. Each product, with its unique acne-fighting and clearing ingredients, is designed to be layered upon the skin to provide around-the-clock, maximum control of the main factors that contribute to acne.

Fantastic in managing hormonal acne

Comments about clearing skin wash:

My skin has taken a life of its own since I turned 45. I had to eliminate gluten from my diet, too, which exacerbated the breakouts. Using this cleanser twice a day has helped tremendously without drying my skin or making it redder then it already is!

Great for Hormonal Acne

Comments about clearing skin wash:

At 46, I have experienced hormonal breakouts all over again. That along with quitting smoking really caused my face to break out bad. I use this face wash which is very gentle, non drying and my face doesn't feel tight after cleansing. I use this and the oil free light weight lotion in addition to the overnight clearing gel. I have to say, my skin looks amazing. I use the sebum clearing mask about twice a week to add to my regimen. I am very pleased! My next step was a dermatologist for treatment if this didn't work, but it did soooo well!

Clearing Skin Wash

Comments about clearing skin wash:

This wash makes your skin extremely clean and free of impurities but also makes my skin very dry. I have been fighting to keep my skin nourished enough after washing but have seen some breakouts since still. I am going to try a different moisturizer to see if it will help at all since I bought the largest size available. My breakouts were better with the essential cleaning solution since it did not leave my skin so dry.

Comments about clearing skin wash:

I love this cleanser! My face feels squeaky clean and soft after using it. It's a fairly large tube in my opinion so I feel it will last quite a long time considering you don't need a large amount to cleanse your face with. I love that it has salicylic acid in it for that extra acne fighting boost.

  • Q:

    Fake Tan: I was just wondering if this product would effect my tan - ie. should I stop using it while I have a fake tan or if it won't effect it at all? Not if I could use it to remove fake tan - I am hoping that it won't!

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This is an exfoliating cleanser. Most spray tanning manufacturers recommend against exfoliating after a tan. Please confirm with the tanning manufacturer.

    Is the clearing skin wash non-comedogenic?: I know it isn't labeled or stated as such but would like to know. Thanks!

    • A:

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Clearing Skin Wash is for acne and therefore is suitable for acneic skin. We do not use terms like non-comedogenic, because different types of skin respond to different types of ingredients.

      Kind Regards,

      Hello,

      Thank you for your question. This product is for a full face of acne. For blackheads, try Daily Micrfoliant, Clearing Mattifier, and monthly professional treatments. You can find a spa near you by going to our Store Locator and entering your zip code. Here's a link: http://bit.ly/1sickvD

      yes, this does open pores with gentle Salicylic Acid which exfoliates skin to allow the treatment to get deep down. I do not have one blackhead at all !

  • Q:

    Breakouts?: I have had moderate acne my whole life, and I have been using the skin clearing wash twice a day morning and evening followed by the active moist in the morning and overnight clearing gel in the evening before bed. At first it caused my ehole face to break out in under the skin type acne bumps, some painful and quite large. My sister in law works for a rejuvenation clinic that carries and uses the dermologica line, she recommended these products told me that it will cause breakouts that cleanse or 'purge' the skin of its impurities for 6-8 weeks before your skin will really clear up. I have been using the products religiously for approx 6 weeks now and am still getting daily breakouts of small bumps under the skin all over my face, mostly concentrated around my chin and cheeks and jawline. Should I continue to use this regime and hope it clears up? Or am I over drying my skin or using the wrong product? Please help.

      Hello,

      Thank you for your feedback. You might benefit from the following regimen:

      Morning-
      Special Cleansing Gel
      Antioxidant Hydramist
      Breakout Control (spot treatment)
      Oil Free Matte SPF 30

      Evening-
      Precleanse
      Special Cleansing Gel
      Daily Microfoliant
      Breakout Control
      Active Moist

      1-3 times per week, use Charcoal Rescue Masque.

      Please remember that acne is often genetic. Nothing topical can change our genetics. We can, however, manage acne. Please be patient and persistent with the products. Remember to follow good habits such as cleaning your phone and washing pillow cases often. Additionally, avoid touching your face and picking at breakouts. Finally, try to de-stress, as stress is a huge contributing factor to acne. If you are female and it is around the chin, it may also be hormonal.

      Kind Regards,
      The Dermalogica Team
