What do you do when acne comes around during that time of the month, mama? Here’s what we thought of A-DERMA’s new acne-fighting fluid
Whoever still deals with adult acne, say I! While it’s nothing to be psyched about, you shouldn’t shy away from finding a solution either. Adult acne is usually caused by hormonal issues (during your monthly cycle, or even post-pregnancy), and could be made worse by the conditions of your external environment. As we get older, our metabolism slows down, thus causing noticeable dark marks to stick around long after our zits have gone. What we really need is an acne treatment that not only reduces the formation of acne but also gets rid of marks and mattifies the skin!
A-DERMA is one of the only plant-based dermo-cosmetic brands in Singapore, and makes it its mission to create a fab range of products designed for very sensitive, fragile skin – from tiny bubs all the way up to adults! Did we mention they’re also a responsible brand? A-DERMA ensures a short distribution channel, which concentrates everything from cultivation to formulation to final production of products in the Southwest of France.
We recently got to try their new Phys-AC Perfect Fluid – a skin-perfecting, oil-free lotion that erases blemishes, reduces scarring and restores balance to fragile acne-prone skin to give a smooth, radiant complexion – and had great results from this little miracle worker. One skincare-loving mama on the team took it to the test:
“I have the odd pimple around my jawline which flares up once a month. I haven’t really tried to tackle this yet so this is the first product I’ve used to help my problem, and after using the fluid for 2 weeks I can see and feel a slight difference (which rarely happens as I often give up before I see any change). I really liked the slight tingly sensation when first applying the fluid (from the lactic acid), though this lessened after my skin became accustomed to the ingredients. The redness from my spots reduced and my complexion appears clearer and more even. It has only been a couple of weeks, but so far so good!”
How does it work so effectively? The Phys-AC Perfect Fluid contains Cicahyalumide®, A-DERMA’s very own exclusive and patented active ingredient with proven efficacy against residual marks. The Cicahyalumide® complex contains Rhealba® Oat Plantlet extract (the purest oat chosen for its soothing and anti-irritating, repairing, emollient and hydrating, and anti-free radicals properties), hydrating L-ALA-L-GLU Dipeptide and moisturising Hyaluronic acid.
Rhealba® Oat is a natural, plant-based active ingredient that’s at the heart of the Phys-AC Perfect Fluid and every A-DERMA product. A unique and exclusive species that has gone through 30 years of research and development, it was selected out of 26,000 varieties worldwide and identified as the purest oat with the highest concentration of anti-inflammatory molecules – best for taking down swelling gently yet efficiently. Plus, it has no detectable proteins, a potential source of allergy and hyper-sensitisation – making it suitable for even the most fragile and acne-prone skin.
