Now I’m in my thirties my skin really appreciates an extra helping hand. Products aren’t just for fun anymore, I rely on them to keep my skin looking its best. For the last couple of months, I’ve been trying out some skincare products from Dermalogica. I’m impressed. Their products are straightforward, simple and designed to help your skin glow.
Having a good skincare routine day and night is really important. Dermalogica have a product for every step: pre-cleanse, cleansing, toning, moisturising and more! Their website allows you to browse their products by skin concern – from dry skin and breakouts to tackling the signs of ages.
I have classic combination skin, with an oily t-zone and dryness everywhere else. What problems did I want to tackle?
I need a cleanser that’ll effectively remove make-up and dirt without drying out my skin. The Precleanse Cleasing Oil is perfect for me. This light and deliciously fragranced oil melts into your skin and turns into a milky cleanser when you add water. I massage it on to my skin in the evenings and remove with a hot flannel. You can follow up with the Special Cleansing Gel, but I find this dries out my skin a little too much. If I need something a little stronger with the oil, I also like to add in the Daily Microfoliant – a rice based exfoliant that’s brilliant for clogged pores.
A light daytime moisturiser that’ll keep my skin fresh and hydrated. I don’t like heavy creams during the day – they just feel too greasy under make up. The Skin Smoothing Cream is brilliant. It’s light and easily absorbed, and keeps my skin happy all day. I’ve been using it for about six weeks now and I’m impressed. I think my skin looks a little more smooth and even too.
An easy primer/tinted moisturiser for no make-up days. The Dermalogica SkinPerfect Primer is perfect for those days when you don’t have time for make up, but still want to look good. This tinted primer is designed to be worn over moisturiser and gives your skin a beautifully subtle glow. It also smells nice and has a SPF of 30!
If you’re new to Dermalogica, why not try out one of their festive gift sets? The Skin Smooth favourites contains some essential products to get you started. Or, if you’re looking for a treat, then the 12 Days to Glow advent calendar has got everything you need to pamper your skin this winter!
