Medicine Cabinet Must-Have: Special Clearing Booster

Whether you battle with frequent acne, or sporadic blemishes, everyone should have a spot-treatment handy in their medicine cabinet.

Dermalogica’s Special Clearing Booster is highly effective at clearing breakouts, while soothing the surrounding skin without drying it out.

With 5% Benzoyl Peroxide concentrate, one of the most notorious pimple zapping leaders, this topical treatment is a sure thing to get rid of pesky pimples at an accelerated rate.  It is also fortified with Zinc Sulfate, Tea Tree and Sage, which also help to heal skin and eliminate bacteria.  Let’s take a deeper look into these highly effective ingredients.

Zinc Sulfate

Zinc sulfate works to destroy harmful organisms and bacteria in the skin, and is known for its astringent qualities.  It is one of the most essential ingredients for healthy skin.  It is a mineral that is necessary for the skins production of collagen, which helps the skin heal its wounds.  It’s a drying agent, which assists with the treatment of acne by drying out oil, and also reduces inflammation caused by acne and soothes skin from itching and rashes.

Tea Tree

Tea tree has a long history of treating cuts, burns and infections.  Tea tree oil is a powerful essential oil that has been proven effective for combating bacteria, which helps prevent acne to form. It clear pores and acts like a disinfectant to help diminish skin impurities.


Besides its relaxing, soothing fragrance, lavender has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties that are crucial for taking care of your skin.  It is also a natural healing ingredient and prevents scarring and the skins production of oil – which is necessary when fighting off acne.

Now, the infamous Benzoyl Peroxide – a born acne fighter and a frequent ingredient in acne treatment products.  It opens up pores to expose them to oxygen, therefore killing bacteria that live within pores, reducing the probabilities of breaking out. It is also able to rid the skin of dead skin cells, purifying the skin and ensuring pores stay unclogged.

“…less harsh on sensitive skin than your average acne spot treatment…”

The Special Clearing Booster was created not only treat acne and pimples, but by containing so many ingredients that help fight off all of the harmful bacteria and oil, it really prevents your skin from having breakouts.
