Washing your face might appear to be the most basic step towards fresh, clean skin but there certain things you want to avoid to keep it in tip top condition and we are here to help with exactly that.
Take off that make up
Many of us love make-up. It evens skin tone, enhances our best bits and can boost self-esteem but it is vital to remove it before going to bed, especially that stubborn mascara and eye-liner. Dermalogica Soothing Eye Make Up Remover is a powerful formula free of oil and alcohol that removes all eye and lip make-up but doesn’t cause irritation or dryness. It is suitable for all skin and really is an absolute beauty bag staple.
Do not over cleanse
Cleansing your face is very important because it removes the dirt, make up and oil that clings to the skin making it uneven and dull. However over cleansing can cause dehydration, irritation and compound the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Using the Dermalogica UltraCalming Cleanser morning and night is a pretty good way to strike a balance and get it right. It is a soothing, pH-balanced gel that glides across the face and cleanses the skin without stripping it of is protective barrier. The great thing is that it is packed with fantastic natural products that not only clean the skin but also help calm and cool any redness or discomfort. It easily rinses away or can be wiped off with cotton wool making it ideal for skin that is sensitive to water.
Do not rinse with very cold or very hot water
Talking of water, let’s cover this off now. We have already said this, but facial skin is very sensitive therefore please, please don’t rinse it with very hot or freezing cold water because both can be harmful. Hot water can lead to dryness and extreme cold water can damage the capillaries under skin. The best thing to do is rinse with luke warm or room temperature water, as this will keep the skin healthy and young for.
Exfoliate the right way
Exfoliating correctly will keep your skin super-healthy and totally smooth. Exfoliation removes that hard to shift dirt, yeast and dead skin from the face leaving it feeling fresh and looking bright. The process also allows for the generation of new skin so you look younger for longer. If you are looking for an every day option, you can’t go wrong with the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. This is a unique, rice powder that micro-exfoliates the skin, taking away debris. All skin can benefit from this potent, but gentle product and it and will look noticeably smoother and brighter after the very first use.
Don’t forget to moisturise
Once you’ve done the groundwork, it is vital to moisturise so your skin remains hydrated and plump. Different skins, at different times, need different moisturisers so make sure you do a little research and find something that works for you. If you have normal to dry skin and want a cream that will smooth fine dehydration lines and relieve tightness, why not give the Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream a go? This fantastic medium-weight cream not only maintains the skin’s moisture balance but also improves the texture and feel. Deep-moisturising Lecithin and Aloe Gel nourish the skin and extracts of Mallow, Cucumber and Arnica soothe and hydrate it.

What this really means is that it is a brilliant product that will make you and your skin glow.
So remember, look after your skin if you want it to glow and be healthy.
