I thought at 33 I would have grown out of stupid spots and breakouts but oh no I seem to get more and more of them as I get older. I don't have oily skin but do suffer from hormonal breakouts ( I suffer from PCOS so my hormones are completely NUTS). No matter how clean my skin is or how well it is kept exfoliated I always get spots around my nose and my chin area. So this little tube of gel cream is my lifesaver.
Effaclar Duo is designed to reduce the appearance of imperfections and prevent future breakouts and contains two active ingredients, LHA and Linoleic Acid, which eliminate the dead skin cells that are responsible for clogging pores and causing breakouts. The two other active ingredients, Niacinamide and Piroone Olamine purify the skin, protect against breakouts developing, and help to calm down and reduce imperfections.
It is a lightweight gel that you apply all over your face after cleansing. I generally only apply it to the spot prone areas though. You only need to use a small amount and it soaks straight into the skin so you can use it underneath your moisturiser and makeup. I notice a diffence overnight in my skin but everyone is different.
It cost about €16/€17 and you can get it in selected pharmacies nationwide. There are seven specialist products in the Effaclar range each of which has been especially designed to purify & combact oily or blemish prone skin, clogged pores and imperfections. So check them out to get your skin looking amazing for the party season.
