MY FACEMAP TO A HEALTHY SKIN
5 February 2017
All good skin stories start with a Dermalogica face-mapping! For me, #MyFaceMyStory happened 12 years ago when I started using the incredible Dermalogica product range. I have always struggled with the dreaded oily T-zone but my T-zone was particularly bad before I started using Dermalogica’s miracle products. Through consistent use of these products, my teenage years were made slightly easier when people were no longer playing dot-to-dot with my face. Funnily enough, the first product
I ever purchased my mom purchased for me (thanks mom!) was the Daily Microfoliant which I still incorporate into my skin regime 12 years on.
“When Dermalogica meets skin, skin health is redefined. Dermalogica is the number one choice of skin care professionals and consumers worldwide. Why? Because for over 25 years, we’ve been dedicated to delivering skin health results through education, innovation, and professional recommendation, not through advertising, frilly packaging, promises of miracle cures, or overblown hype.” – Dermalogica SA
And that is why I absolutely SWEAR by these products. There is no denying that Dermalogica is one of the most sophisticated skin care brands currently on the market.
MY SKIN CARE REGIME
Firstly, looking after one’s skin can be very costly. That’s why I am not going to bombard you with a million product recommendations all in one go. Instead, I will tell you what my absolute essentials are when it comes to making sure my skin looks and feels its best.
STEP 1: CLEANSING
A day and night cleanser is an absolute MUST! I cleanse my face with the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel. This product is a soap-free, foaming gel that cleanses all skin conditions. It is an incredible product that can be used once, twice or even three times daily and always leaves my skin feeling crispy clean and refreshed.
STEP 2: TONING
This is a step I have only incorporated into my skin care regime in the past 3 months. For some reason I used to think that toning was not that important…until I actually started toning and realised the difference it made to my skin. Now granted, I have been using travel samples for the past 3 months but the Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner has literally changed my skin tone and texture dramatically. The multi-active toner is a light facial toner spray that hydrates and refreshes the skin. It conditions the skin and helps prepare the skin for step 3: MOISTURISER!
STEP 3: MOISTURISING
Moisturising is arguably the most important step in my skin care regime. As with the toning, it took me a long time to accept that I actually needed to moisturise. I always thought it was counter-productive because of my oily T-zone. However, finding the right moisturiser is so important and believe it or not, there are moisturisers out there for every skin combination. I absolutely LOVE my Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream which is a medium-weight moisturiser that balances my combination skin. I apply this every morning and night after cleansing and toning. This product literally does what it says as it leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and hydrated.
Three more products that should form part of your essential kit are an excellent exfoliator, a good full protection sun-cream and a pimple exterminating product hehe!!
As mentioned above, I love the Daily Microfoliant which I use twice a week. I also use my Dermalogica Solar Defence Booster SPF50 sun-cream which I apply in conjunction with my Skin Smoothing Cream moisturiser, and the Overnight Clearing Gel which helps knock out those nasty pimples that ALWAYS appear before a big event!
If you aren’t already using #DermalogicaSA products, you REALLY should get that pretty little toosh to a Dermalogica store and get your face mapped A.S.A.P or complete the online speed mapping questionnaire here.
Because we ALL deserve a GREAT skin!
