During the summer months I spend as much time as I can at the beach frolicking to and fro and soaking up lots of vitamin D. In the process I also risk getting tons of new freckles and possible sun damage. But one thing’s for sure, I always opt for a skincare regimen that will protect, prevent and maintain healthy looking skin all year long.
Dermalogica is a new skincare line introduced to me this season. They sent me these samples to try and I’ve been using them for the last several weeks. I am happy to report that this line of skincare has so far delivered everything it claims to do. It’s difficult to find new products that actually deliver results and these certainly didn’t disappoint.I prep my skin with the PreCleanse which thoroughly melts away layers of excess oil, sunscreen, waterproof make-up, pollutants and other products that build up on skin. I then follow with my most loved item from the entire line, the Daily Microfoliant! I love a good exfoliant and it’s part of my daily skincare routine that I NEVER skip. This one is a gentle rice-based daily exfoliating powder. It activates upon contact with water releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes that micro-exfoliate dead cells. It instantly leaves my skin squeaky smooth and brighter. I couldn’t say enough about it!
After a nice cleanse I follow up by moisturizing my skin with the Dynamic Skin Recovery with SPF 50. This is a medium-weight emollient daily moisturizer with sun protection. It blends ever so smoothly into skin to create a perfected finish.
- Provides long-lasting hydration and critical protection against UV light.
- Helps control the triggers that lead to skin aging.
- Antioxidant White Tea (rich in polyphenols) inhibits lipid peroxide formation & helps neutralize free radicals (ROS)
I finish my skincare routine with the Hydrablur Primer. This is a lightweight, non-greasy primer that minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, mattifies against oily shine and imparts a silky, luminous finish to the skin that helps extend makeup wear.
The Special Cleansing Gel I use whenever I don’t wear too much makeup or none at all. It’s a gentle cleanser that thoroughly removes impurities without disturbing the skin’s natural moisture balance. The Phyto Replenish Oil I also use sparingly. It’s a light treatment oil that rapidly absorbs to reinforce the skin’s protective barrier. You can wear it alone or layered under foundation for all-day dewy skin. This product will definitely come in handy for the upcoming dryer winter months.
