Hi guys, by now you guys know by now how obsessed we are with skincare. We are firm believers of the ‘Skincare is the new makeup’ theory. Skincare, if done right can reduce or completely eliminate regular use of makeup. Not saying we don’t love makeup, but we definitely love those makeup-free days just as much. When it comes to makeup, we believe that less is undoubtedly more. Lately, we’ve updated our skincare routine to tackle our target skin issues. How did we do that? We recently visited the skin care specialists at Dermalogica on Burj and found out a detailed analysis on our skin. Getting our skin mapped with Dermalogica was so beneficial for us as we discovered things about our skin we were otherwise unaware of.
As a part of my face my story, we would also like to share out story with you guys. I think everyone at this stage has gone through some or the other skin concerns or problems. For me a major concern for my skin was a bit of discoloration due to not applying enough SPF. Its great I got to find this out through the experts at Dermalogica and I was also suggested ways to combat this with their special range of products.
Below are a few products that have helped me solve my skin problems. It all starts with a focused night time routine. Firstly, I cleanse my face to remove all my makeup with a normal water based cleanser. Next step is making sure all the makeup is off your face by using a face wash; in my case it would be the Dermalogica Microfoliant. On the days I don’t wear makeup I tend to skip this step and just use a cleanser instead of a face exfoliant.
This one has been a very unique product we have recently started using. Its fairly different from any other product because its powder based and the best part it gets activated in contact with water. This Mircofoliant is a gentle, daily use exfoliating powder for all skin conditions. More details on the ingredients, a unique Rice-based powder formula activates upon contact with water, releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes that micro-exfoliate dead cells. The unique Skin Brightening Complex helps to balance uneven skin pigmentation while a super-soothing blend of Green Tea, Ginkgo and Colloidal Oatmeal helps to calm the skin, leaving it extraordinarily clear and refreshed. All in all this product is a total hit for us! It instantly leaves our skin smoother and brighter. Moving on, the next step is a Serum that will help soak in the eye cream and the night cream seamlessly.
C-12 Pure bright serum
Lightweight, highly-active topical treatment combats uneven skin tone. The formula is beautiful as it absorbs quickly to optimize efficacy while helping to increase skin sheen. I love how the product completely soaks in my skin leaving it with that luminous glow. This serum is supposed to be used twice daily for best results, once before your night cream and once before your day cream. Next step is applying your night moisturizer.
Pure night is a nourishing overnight treatment cream. As you all know the skin works the most in the night during the time you are asleep, hence it’s a must to give it the best nutrition in terms of skincare as possible. This moisturizer goes hand in hand with the serum mentioned above. They work together in terms of reducing the appearance of uneven skin tone while you sleep.
Make sure you guys know what your skin concerns are and tackle them with the right products. We are so glad we found Dermalogica to help us find those concerns. From our skin analysis, we’ve learnt the importance of SPF and how it is an absolute essential for all skin types since UV rays can cause unimaginable and sometimes irreparable damage to your skin. It is also important to note that reapplication of sunscreen is just as important as applying it in the first place and it should be retouched every 2-3 hours. The key to great skin is certainly devoting enough time taking care of it at the earliest so you can have that healthy, glowing and youthful skin for as long as possible.
‘Though beauty may only be skin deep, well-maintained and glowing skin is an indicator of one’s overall health and well-being’.
