Spring is just around the corner and when the warm weather finally arrives I want my skin to look thoroughly replenished from the harsh, winter. During this time of the year I amp up my skincare routine to include more hydration and if you suffer from dry, stripped, uncomfortable and even flaky skin dermalogica has some great products that can help!
I always begin with cleansing and the Ultracalming Cleanser is great for sensitivity caused by harsh climates. When skin needs a boost of moisture it may be time to ditch those foaming cleansers and harsh sulfates for this soothing gel which replenishes lipids and fortifies skin’s protective barrier without leaving behind an irritating residue.
Infused with ginger root, cucumber, lemon, flower extract, raspberry, lavender and Echinacea the gel deeply nourishes skin and feels refreshing. I like to massage it into my face to remove pore clogging makeup and it can be rinsed off or wiped away to reveal a smooth, hydrated complexion.
Formulated without artificial fragrances and colors the cleanser is suitable for sensitive skin and has a nice, light scent, it retails for $47.50.
Nothing quenches dry, agitated winter skin like a refreshing face masque! Dermalogica's Hydrating Masque can be applied after cleansing and uses hyaluronic acid to trap moisture and deliver lasting suppleness.
Rich tomato seed lipids restores skin’s protective barrier and essential fruit extracts, antioxidants, vitamins, oils and botanicals soothe and heal. I like that the masque applies creamy and smooth for great coverage and it can be used 2-3 times per week. The formula does not dry out completely in the 10-15 minutes of recommended use so skin never feels tight and uncomfortable while being treated.
This is a fabulous masque to use prior to applying moisturizer or other treatments and it leaves my skin feeling soft and ready to take on whatever the weather has in store. It is suitable for all skin types and void of artificial colors and fragrances. The masque can also be applied to your hair to treat dry, damaged ends and retails for $54.00.
Along with putting your best face forward you should also hydrate the rest of you! The dermalogica Ultra Rich Body Cream is intensely nourishing to relieve dry, parched skin. I love the thick formula that glides on to coat skin in rich, luscious moisture without feeling greasy or transferring to clothes.
Infused with primrose oil, pro-vitamin B5, shea butter and lavender, the cream conditions and soothes better than most brands I've tried making it one of my new favorites! Vitamin E reinforces the skin’s barrier to shields against skin-damaging environmental assaults with no artificial fragrance.
The best thing about this cream is that the results are long-lasting, it eradicates dry spots effortlessly and after shaving it helps alleviate irritation. My skin feels very soft, silky and rejuvenated after use and it definitely helps you attain a healthy glow. The formula is so great that I wouldn't limit it to winter, it is suitable for all seasons and retails for $68.00.
