Bioderma believes that products shouldn’t take over your skin’s job, yet should just help to do its job better and teach it to live according to its natural biology. Its Sebium collection cleanses, treats, maintains and protects oily, acne- prone skin with its patented active ingredients that helps pores from clogging, reduces lesions and prevents recurrence.
Did you know that nearly 50% of adult women suffer from acne? Bioderma Sebium Global Intensive Purifying Care will help restore the balance of your skin with its intense purifying, dermatological treatment for acne-prone skin. This hydrating care product is the first that biologically treats the causes of blemishes with the new generation Fluidactiv® patent. This innovative active ingredient retains the skin, ensuring that quality of its fatty acids is improved, and the amount of sebum that is produced is reduced. A combination of AHA esters and dermatological agents eliminate blemishes and promote clear skin, while zinc gluconate and enoxolone reduce redness and inflammation both immediately and over time. This skin is then left clean, soft, purified, appearance of scarring is reduced and blemishes free.
Bioderma Sebium Global Intensive Purifying Care comes in a squeeze tube with twist off lid and has a white, almost clear, smooth, lightweight texture to it. It absorbs into the skin almost immediately without leaving any white residue or feeling greasy. It has a sweet cucumber/ melon scent to it that once applied to the skin quickly disappears. It suggests applying it in the morning and evening to freshly cleanse skin and it also doubles as a great makeup base. A little goes a long way, you’ll only need a dime size amount to cover entire face.
I’ve been applying it both morning and night for the past three weeks and although I don’t find it hydrating, it doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight or dry like other acne creams. It has a wonderful, almost gel like consistency to it that applies beautifully without me having to spend a lot of time working it into the skin. The formula not only helps to reduce inflammation but helps prolong the wear of my foundation. I’ve been skipping my makeup primer these past few weeks, yet my foundation has stayed put well into the evening. Although I don’t suffer from blackheads, so I can’t comment on that, I have noticed a reduction in my blemishes this month and less redness around my nose. Bioderma Sebium Global Intensive Purifying Care can be found at your local drugstores and retails for $23 for 30ml, great for someone looking to start an acne treatment program without the high dermatologist price tag.
