However, hope is at hand, for many professional skincare companies now recognise the need for specifi c products
that are formulated to combat the four main factors that contribute to adult acne:
• Overactive sebaceous glands (the production of too much oil).
• Dead skin cell accumulation.
• Bacteria.
• Infl ammation.

who will analyse your skin and recommend a course of professional treatments and products to use at home (like
the Dermalogica MedBac range, above).
