mediBac clearing®

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.

For everyone with adult acne, oily skin and clogged pores

By 

from Bay

Comments about sebum clearing masque:

I have suffered from acne my whole life. Recently I adjusted my birth control and that helped a TON! (I highly recommend doing research, many BC options have testosterone in them and that causes a LOT of acne for women) Anyway. I am going into nursing and just went through our dermis chapter.. I learned a lot about sebum and how it affects our skin. I've been hearing a lot about new 'sebum' targeting treatments and now it all makes sense WHY these are so crucial for stopping acne (especially in adults). Acne is not always caused by dirty pores or hormones like many products lead you to believe. We all produce sebum through our glands… some of us more than others. It's just the way we are. You can use all the sali or benzoyl in the world and it won't soak up or remove the sebum your skin is producing. This mask REALLY DOES absorb the excess sebum on your face. My face is MUCH less oily.. and not just temporarily less oily like charcoal masks do, I notice decreased sebum for days! In turn, this leads to noticably less clogged pores. Which leads to less picking. Less irritation. Less acne. Less scabs. Less everything! I love this mask so much. It is a MUST for anyone with oily skin, clogged pores and acne. As a bonus this also contains a small amount of sali acid which is amazing for exfoliating your skin in a gentle way and providing acne busting medicine to the pimples you already have. If you haven't yet tried a product targeting sebum I highly recommend doing your research and trying one. Or, you can take my advice and try this one. I will be purchasing again and again and plan to gift to my girlfriends who have the same oily skin issues as I do.

Great to use with face wash

By 

from San Diego

Verified Buyer

Comments about sebum clearing masque:

I usually use this product twice a week. Once for my full face and another time just around acne-affected areas (normally my chin). My adult acne has improved by using this mask with the Dermalogica face wash, and a spot treatment (not Dermalogica).

      Hi Cassia,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Sebum Clearing Masque contains Salicylic Acid, which is not recommended for use during pregnancy. You may prefer Skin Refining Masque.

      A:

      Hi Ade,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can alternate the masques in a few ways. You can use either one, once a week. Alternate each week. Or, you can use one masque exclusively, and when you finish the bottle, switch to using the other masque exclusively. As long as your skin is not sensitive, you will be fine.

      Kind Regards,
      Bernadette

      Dear Tori,

      Thank you for your question and interest in Dermalogica. After completing Gluten Analysis testing on all of our wheat containing products the conclusion is that only one is suggested to be avoided by a gluten intolerant or Celiac. This is Extra Firming Booster.

      Hello Ashley,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Sebum Clearing Masque is ideal for oily skin that struggles with acne. Skin Refining Masque is ideal for oily skin. Charcoal Rescue Masque will brighten the skin and detox pores. That being said, based on the information you provided, Sebum Clearing Masque may be the best option for you.

      Hello Kristi,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Sebum Clearing Masque contains Salicylic Acid and therefore, it is not recommended for use during pregnancy. You might refer Skin Refining Masque or Charcoal Rescue Masque. Both are safe to use while pregnant.

    If I'm using this as a spot treatment for breakouts, should I still only use this product a few times a week, or is every day okay?

      A:

      Hi Jade,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please use this masque 1-3 times per week. Apply it to the affected areas for 10 minutes, after cleanser and before toner. If you are interested in a spot treatment, I recommend Breakout Control or Overnight Clearing Gel. Either of those two products can be used daily.

      Kind Regards,

      A:

      Hi Linds,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please continue to use it 1-3 times per week. When you breakout for a week once a month, you can apply a spot treatment to the breakouts. Breakout Control is non drying, but very effective. You can use it morning and night, on breakouts, as needed.

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This product is for oily skin with acne. It can also help blackheads. The best thing for clogged pores, however, is a professional treatment, like a Blackhead Relief Microzone. Once the clogs have been extracted, you can maintain at home.
