Winter Skin

Cool winter temperatures and low humidity levels, combined with hot showers and soap-based products can pull moisture from the skin. On the surface, skin looks dull, feels tight, dry and itchy. At a microscopic level a lack of moisture and oil weakens your skin’s natural protective barrier, leaving it susceptible to invading chemicals causing redness, irritation and sensitivity

Products

Start with Ultracalming Mist, a soothing, hydrating mist to calm redness and sensitivity. Used post-cleanse, this lightweight mist helps create a shield against environmental assaults, and synergistically relieves and restores skin while fighting future flare-ups.

Follow with Skin Hydrating Booster, a super-fluid that hydrates tissues and plumps parched skin. Apply 6 to 10 drops directly to skin, or mix with your favorite Dermalogica Moisturizer. 

Next apply Barrier Repair, a velvety moisturizer helps fortify sensitized skin with a damaged barrier. Use this unique anhydrous (waterless) moisturizer after toning to help shield against environmental and internal triggers that cause skin stress, and minimize discomfort, burning and itching.

For an added boost, apply Skin Hydrating Masque 2 to 3 times a week after cleansing to calm, infuse skin with protective antioxidant vitamins, and restore moisture for fewer fine lines. 

Remember, think layers when it comes to keeping skin healthy all winter long.

Hyaluronic Supplements

Hyaluronic acid is a lubricating, clear substance that’s produced by the body naturally. In the human body, hyaluronic acid is found in the greatest concentrations in the skin, inside joints, within the eye sockets and in other tissues where it helps retain collagen increase moisture, and provide elasticity and flexibility.

Taken internally, hyaluronic acid can improve skin’s texture and appearance, along with reducing joint pain and other symptoms associated with aging.
