Dermalogica skin care - a review of their product range
Founded in Los Angeles in 1986, one of Dermalogica skin cares biggest selling points is that only the finest ingredients are used. All products are non-comedogenic and contain no occlusive mineral oil or lanolin. Specifically important is the fact that the products contain no artificial colours, perfume or alcohol, ingredients that regularly cause unnecessary skin irritations.
There are many products available, these include cleansers, conditioners, toners, moisturisers, masks, treatment foundation, solar defence system treatments, spa body therapies, daily groomers and skin kits.
Firstly, cleansers clean the skin, especially around the face and neck area to wipe away excess oil and dirt, important in reducing clogging of the pores.
Secondly, conditioners, toners and moisturisers re-hydrate the skin in order to prevent dryness causing irritation.
Thirdly, facial masks are applied in order to remove or peel away dead skin cells, creating room for the replenishment of new ones.
The other products are specifically targeted at different day to day aspects which, if skin is exposed to continually, will eventually cause problems. For example the solar defence system prevents over exposure to the sun and its harmful rays which can age the skin.
Although skin protection and skin care should be an all over body regime, the mot popular area to treat is the face and neck, probably as they are the most exposed areas. Each customer has different needs with regards to choosing the most beneficial skin care products. Therefore Dermalogica offer a free face mapping consultation. The face is divided into fourteen areas, or zones and the company focus on each of these zones for product recommendation.
Firstly, zones one and three focus on the forehead, this area is affected by the digestive and bladder system. It is recommended that the customer drinks mor ewater and eats more whole foods.
Secondly, zone two is located between the eyebrows, affected by the liver (too much alcohol, rich foods maybe even an allergy).
Thirdly, zones six and eight are around the eyes, affected by the kidneys, usually in correlation to dehydration.
Zones five and nine focus on the cheeks, affected by the repertory system for example smoking and allergies.
