Tips and tricks

Happy, healthy skin is something we would all love to have but it doesn’t just happen overnight, and unless you’ve hit the genetic jackpot, it doesn’t usually come naturally. The people who have the best-looking skin tend to have the best habits when it comes to skincare. Here are our top tips and favourite products to look after your skin.
Hydration is key so be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day. And it’s not just about what you put in your body; you should invest in a good quality moisturiser to lock in your skin’s moisture.
We love Dermalogica’s best-selling Skin Smoothing Cream with HydraMesh Technology that infuses skin with 48 hours of hydration and protects against environmental stress. With a hyaluronic acid complex, mallow, cucumber and arnica, your skin will be left hydrated and protected.
Always take the day off
Always, always, always remove your make-up properly at the end of the day. And even if you don’t wear make-up, you should be treating your face to a cleanse to wash the day away. Your skin does a lot of rejuvenation while you sleep, so you should give it a helping hand.
Dermalogica has an extensive range of cleansers to suit every skin concern but we love best-selling Precleanse and Special Cleansing Gel. Precleanse melts impurities and make-up from skin allowing your Special Cleansing Gel to penetrate even further. The Special Cleansing Gel will rinse away toxins and debris to leave your skin smooth and clean.
Dead skins cells get in the way of every other treatment that you do for your skin, so get rid of them. By exfoliating regularly, you’ll remove the dead skin cells that are clogging your face and uncover fresh new cells below. This allows moisturising products to penetrate more deeply, making them more effective.
Our go-to product is Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant. It’s gentle enough to be used daily and helps achieve brighter, smoother skin. This rice-based powder is activated with water and releases papain, salicylic acid and rice enzymes to polish skin to perfection.
Never pop your spots
We repeat, never pop your spots. Annoying but unavoidable, spots are bound to appear from time to time, and when they do, please leave them alone. Popping and picking them can leave scars that can take months to heal.
Instead, pop on some of Dermalogica’s Overnight Clearing Gel to help clear breakouts while you sleep. Bonus - it’ll also reduce visible skin ageing!
A balanced diet
Good skin starts from the inside. If you want your skin to get the vitamins and minerals that are essential to keep it happy and healthy, make sure you eat a balanced diet consisting of lots of fruit, veg and protein.
Getting a proper night's sleep is one of the best habits you can have for your skin, and your overall health. While you sleep, your body takes time to recover from the day so regularly failing to get the recommended eight hours of sleep can really take a toll on your body and your skin. Catch those Z’s!
If you want an extra boost, Dermalogica’s Sound Sleep Cocoon transforms your skin by optimising overnight skin recovery. Tamarind seed extract creates a nourishing cocoon of comfort for softer, more hydrated skin while motion-activated French lavender essential oil (with sandalwood and patchouli) work all night to promote deep, restful sleep for healthier-looking skin by morning.
UVA and UVB rays can cause long-term damage to your skin. We recommend that you wear sunscreen or a moisturiser with at least SFP 30 to combat the damaging effects and protect your skin.
Dermalogica’s Prisma Protect SFP 30 is a moisturiser that provides broad spectrum defence and prevents future signs of skin damage. It comes loaded with antioxidants so not only does it protect you from UV rays, but also pollution. It’s a perfect all-rounder and we don’t go a day without it.
