Dermalogica for Men

dermalogica_logo_vertMore and more men are starting to realise that looking after their skin with a good skincare regime is very important and not just for ladies. Looking after their skin health and tackling skincare problems is becoming a larger part of their life and in searching for the answers we are often asked ‘Is Dermalogica suitable for men?’ or ‘Which Dermalogica products are suitable for men?’. The answer is very simple: all of them.

The only consideration when choosing skincare is maintaining skin health and trying to deal with any skin problems that you currently have. It’s the same for men as it is for ladies, the only difference being is that women intrinsically know this and men do not. All of Dermalogica’s products are as suitable for men as they are for women.

Basic Skincare Regime

It is very  important that certain types of products are used in any skincare regime. These are a Cleanser and a Moisturiser. They should be used twice daily – morning and evening – with the moisturiser following the cleanser. If possible a Toner and Exfoliant would be beneficial too. A good place to start for most men (probably with normal/normal-oily skin) would be:

Item Products Frequency
Cleanser Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel Daily – morning and evening
Exfoliant Dermalogica Skin Prep Scrub Weekly – 2 to 3 times
Toner Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner Daily – morning and evening
Moisturiser Dermalogica Active Moist Daily – morning and evening

Skincare regimes should be tailored to your skin’s needs and we are very happy to advise you on the products that would be suitable for you. If you would like us to do so then please email us on detailing the following:

  • Your Skin Type: Normal/Normal-Oily/Oily/Dry/Normal-Dry/Sensitive
  • Any skincare problems you have
  • Any relevant medication
  • Your age

Patch Testing Skincare Products

FacemapThere are times when you may want to introduce a new product to your Skincare Regime. You should always patch test new products prior to introducing them to ensure that they are suitable for your skin. This can prevent severe skin reactions and problems that can take a long time to correct themselves and some of which can be unsightly, all of which are unwanted.

Patch testing is a simple method of seeing if a new product, that may contain ingredients you have never tried before, is suitable for your skin. Not all of the steps outlined below are necessary for all products but if you are unsure, have sensitive skin or have had an adverse reaction before, we would encourage you to follow the steps in order.

Patch Testing Skincare Process

If at any point you receive a reaction of any kind, it is likely that you have reacted to one or more of the ingredients in the product and you should discontinue use.

  1. Apply a small amount either to the crook of your elbow or to the inside of your bicep.
  2. Leave for 24 hours.
  3. Examine the area closely and if there is no adverse reaction proceed. Possible reactions include:
    • Redness and swelling
    • Soreness
    • Itching and irritation
  4. Apply a small amount behind an ear.
  5. Leave for 24 hours.
  6. Examine the area as in point 3 and proceed if no reaction.
  7. Apply to a small area of the neck.
  8. Leave for 24 hours.
  9. Examine the area as in point 3 and proceed if no reaction.
  10. Use as prescribed on the areas of concern.
  11. Leave for 24 hours without applying any other skincare.
  12. Use as prescribed and observe any reactions.

Although this process can seem excessively cautious and protracted, and it may not be necessary for all skincare products and all skin types, it could help prevent a serious skin reaction.

Night Creams

Moisturisers We are often asked by our customers which Dermalogica Moisturiser is designed to be used as a night time moisturiser. We thought it very important to explain how and when they should be used.

Dermalogica do not manufacture Night Creams as such. Each of their moisturisers are designed to be used twice daily after your Dermalogica Cleanser, the only important consideration being using the correct moisturiser for your skin and it’s needs. Never the less we realise that some customers prefer a richer moisturiser at night than they do in the morning. This can be achieved in a number of ways.

2 Moisturisers

If you prefer to simply have a morning moisturiser and then a richer evening moisturiser you simply need to use the next richest cream in range. The following should help with your choice:

Morning Moisturiser Suggested Evening Moisturiser
Oil Control Lotion Active Moist
Active Moist Skin Smoothing Cream
Skin Smoothing Cream Intensive Moisture Balance
Intensive Moisture Balance Super Rich Repair

Concentrated Boosters

Dermalogica’s Concentrated Boosters, also known as serums, are a great addition to your moisturiser and can be used twice daily before your moisturiser as a targeted treatment, or combined with your moisturiser for an all over increased effect.

Targeted Treatments

Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Concentrate is a great way of targeting specific areas of the face with a predefined dose of antioxidant vitamins. It can be used under your moisturiser or instead of it in the an evening.

Focus on Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery

Dynamic Skin Recovery

Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery will help you achieve absolute hydration and help defend against the internal and external causes of skin aging with this medium-weight, emollient daily moisturiser with SPF30. A patented polypeptide combined with Glucosamine and Soy stimulates 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 regulate the formation of collagen-degrading MMPs brought on by UV rays while tripeptides, stabilized Vitamin C, Yeast Extract and Phytoestrogens help catalyze the skin’s natural collagen production to enhance skin firmness. Advanced sunscreen technology provides critical protection from daylight exposure, yet blends smoothly into skin to create a perfected finish.

Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery is suitable for drier or prematurely-aging skin and is part of the Dermalogica AGE Smart range.
