BACK TO BASICS: With Dermalogica

Hey Insta-friends! I would like to chat about something that’s nothing new, but that women are always on a mission with – preserving our youthful faces! Yes, yes and bodies too, but for today I’d like to concentrate on our physiognomy!

I’ve personally been a keen Dermalogica enthusiast and devoted user of their range for many years. As time has passed and got the better of my youthful, perhaps robust facial appearance and skin, I found myself wondering off and experimenting with several other skin care ranges over the past few years, forever on that quest for the ever-lasting spritely manifestation.

My skin care regiment changes all the time, and I’m only to eager to try whatever is available on the market, but I’ve recently attended a Dermalogica Face Mapping®️ skin analysis in Rosebank Mall, Johannesburg and was really amazed with the result they gave me. I had been recommend the following products specifically prescribed for my exact skin requirements. So I find myself going back to basics, and back to my very initial skin regime I was introduced to in my 20’s and am loving the results.

Get to your nearest Dermalogica salon or spa and try out this unique skin analysis to find out more about your skin’s past and present, allowing the subsequent prescription for your targeted home care regime for your own healthy skin future.

The following products were recommended for my skin and I’d love to share more about them:

•Special cleansing gel

Soap-free, foaming gel cleanses all skin conditions. Refreshing lather thoroughly removes impurities without disturbing the skin’s natural moisture balance. Calming Balm Mint and Lavender extracts soothe the skin, while natural Quillaja Saponaria gently foams away toxins and debris. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colours.

•Dynamic skin recovery SPF50

Achieve absolute hydration and help defend against the internal and external causes of skin aging with this medium-weight, emollient daily moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF30. A patented polypeptide combined with Glucosamine and Soy helps stimulate collagen synthesis, enhances the skin’s natural ability to fight skin-aging free radicals (Reactive Oxygen Species) and helps prevent the signs of aging caused by sugar reacting with proteins in skin (AGEs). White Tea polyphenols help regulate the formation of collagen-degrading MMPs brought on by UV rays while tripeptides, Yeast Extract and Phytoestrogens help enhance skin firmness. Advanced sunscreen technology provides critical protection from daylight exposure, yet blends smoothly into skin to create a perfected finish. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colors.

•Antioxidant hydramist

A refreshing peptide toner that creates a hydrating, antioxidant shield over skin to help reduce fine dryness lines and prevent the signs of ageing. Mist over skin after cleansing and throughout the day to help firm, rehydrate, and minimize skin-ageing triggers.

•Calm water gel


Weightless water-gel moisturiser

Weightless water-gel moisturiser hydrates dry, sensitive skin. Refreshing gel formula transforms into a skin-quenching fluid upon application, forming a weightless barrier against environmental assault. Dual Hyaluronic Acid technology works in different skin surface layers to increase and lock in moisture. Apple Fruit Extract and Glycerin hydrate and soften while defending skin against dryness. Cactus Pear Extract helps soothe sensitivity and imparts water-binding properties to help support healthy moisture balance.

•Overnight retinol repair

Powerful treatment cream accelerates skin renewal and reduces the appearance of skin aging overnight. Active microencapsulated pure Retinol helps increase collagen production and cell turnover. Powerful peptides and antioxidant Vitamin C help fight signs of aging including uneven skin tone and discoloration. Formulated with a clinically-proven bioenergized Copper amino acid complex shown to reduce visible wrinkles and improve skin firmness. Includes a moisturizing Buffer Cream (included) to help skin acclimate to this highly-active form of Retinol. Formulated without artificial fragrances, colors or parabens.

•C-12 pure bright serum

Lightweight, highly-active topical treatment combats hyperpigmentation (brown spots, discoloration and uneven skin tone) day and night. Advanced formula absorbs quickly to optimize efficacy while helping to increase skin luminosity. Contains an exclusive blend of Oligopeptides, plus Rice-derived Phytic Acid, antioxidant Zinc Glycinate, and Red and Brown Algae to help regulate melanin (pigment) formation to treat hyperpigmentation at its source. Formulated without artificial fragrances, colors or parabens.

Thank you DERMALOGICA for taking me back to basics again. Here to healthy, glowing and beautiful skin my Insta-friends. Would love to hear from all of you, and how you experienced the Face Mapping®️ from Dermalogica too.

Much Love,
