For Healthy Glowing Winter Skin

For Healthy Glowing Winter Skin
When it comes to my skin, winter is not kind. I know the chilliest season has officially arrived when dry patches start to form around my lips and nose, and my skin takes on a texture somewhere in between a roll of sandpaper and the Sahara desert. Between the dry winter air, low temperatures, over exposure to air conditioning, and a slight addiction to super hot showers, my skin becomes dehydrated, irritated and itchy, and my fine lines and wrinkles come out of hiding. The question on everyone’s chapped lips: How do we combat this?
Winter air is less humid than summer air, and when combined with other factors like heating and hot showers, our skin becomes as thirsty as a millennial on a Friday night. Our outer skin layers are composed of lipids and fats that protect the skin from drying out, and hot water, dry air and harsh soaps cause that layer to break down faster. Whelp. Our skin changes with each passing of the season, and therefore it makes sense that our skincare routines need to change to match this. Read on for a winter skin regimen packed with products that’ll have your skin hydrated and glowing in no time…
Cleansing Oil - When the temperatures start to drop, it’s a good idea to swap out your regular face wash for a cleansing oil such as PreCleanse or PreCleanse Balm. Your regular routine may be stripping away natural oils, whereas a cleansing oil will usually contain essential fatty acids that moisturise the skin, making it feel supple and soft.
Cleanser (milk or cream) - Similarly, a milk, lotion or cream-based cleanser will help to soothe and condition skin, so that it doesn’t feel even drier after cleansing. You could try the new Intensive Moisture Cleanser or UltraCalming Cleanser.
Face Oil - Like a kitten to a saucer of milk, your skin will lap up face oil with glee in the winter months. The key is finding oils that are hydrating but not comedogenic (i.e. pore clogging), with an ingredients list that includes argan, safflower, sweet almond, or camellia which is in the Phyto Replenish Oil.
Serum/Booster - Since your skin needs a helping hand through these frigid months, a serum or booster is a non-negotiable element in your skincare routine. Try the new Multivitamin Power Serum, or the popular BioLumin C Serum which containes Argan, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, sunflower seed oil, and linseed oil are all incredibly adept ingredients at bringing dry, dull winter skin back to life.
Exfoliator - A gentle cream exfoliator will be your BFF during the winter months. Just don’t overdo it—exfoliating too often can cause redness, sensitivity and tightness in the skin. The Daily Microfoliant is a wonderful daily exfoliant which is so gentle on your skin.
Moisturiser - During winter, your skin will require a heavier moisturiser than it does in the warmer months. A long-lasting moisturiser or a thick cream containing hyaluronic acid or glycerin will help to draw in moisturiser, also. If your skin is sensitive, keep an eye out for products containing ceramides, which are naturally occurring lipids in the skin. Have your tried the new Barrier Defense Booster? You can mix this with you moisturiser.
Lip Balm - In saving the best part of your new regimen to last, it’s time to give your lips the TLC they deserve. Avocado, shea, cocoa seed, and aloe vera are all great options for both softening and healing dry, chapped lips. Dermalogica has both the Nightly Lip Treatment plus the Lip Renewal Complex.

LIGHT THERAPY FOR YOUR SKIN 

photon led treatment
LED Light Photon with 3 colors Beauty Device
The power of LED light cannot be overemphasized. Since the discovery by NASA in 1990 that it affects living tissue, numerous researchers have shown that LED lights that have different wavelengths have slightly different beneficial effects on the skin, which aid in the healing and rejuvenating processes. Over the years, the LED light technology was adopted by dermatologists who were determined to help people gain back their youthful face or at best, a wrinkle-free face. However, the good news is that this technology is now available to all, in the comfort of your own home.

Will stimulate the production of collagen & activate skin cell vitality. Collagen is an essential protein used to repair damaged tissue and to replace old tissue.
LED Blue light care:Wavelength of 415 nm. It is anti-inflammatory & bactericidal. Adjusts the balance of skin, oil & water. Bacteria in acne contain porphyrins;the blue light is able to kill porphyrins due to the high affinity with this wave length.The blue light furthermore has calming action which is very effective for hypersensitivity. And in a very short period of time effectively reduce the number of acne bacillus, improve acne skin. The blue light penetrating about 0.5mm has the function of calming against skin rashes;

Closest to the sun wavelength of light is called "the light of life", can replenish your skin, activate cell energy, accelerate blood circulation and the new and old cell replacement, effectively improve dark skin. People with sensitive skin will benefit from the soothing and calming effect of yellow light therapy. If you are looking for a solution to skin conditions such as UV radiation, rosacea, flushing, redness and inflammation, yellow light therapy offers a great non-pharmaceutical alternative.

Sunscreen Laws!

Sunscreen Laws!
The laws have shifted recently in Australia with the requirement and regulation of SPF 50+ on our shelves. This has caused an obvious confusion as to how long can you dare to bare.
How well a sunscreen works is determined by testing two properties.
1. the 'sun protection factor' (SPF) - which measures the degree of protection against UVB radiation.
2. the 'broad spectrum performance' which is a measure of the degree of protection from UVA radiation.
While SPF 50+ sunscreens provide better broad spectrum performance, this does not mean you have a 'suit of armour' people still need to be SunSmart. You need to apply SPF 50+ sunscreen just as liberally as SPF 30+. In addition, as with other sunscreens, SPF 50+ may rub off through towelling, swimming, and perspiration. The rule for applyIng SPF 50+ remains the same: apply liberally and re-apply liberally every 2 hours.
Being SunSmart is still important, clothing, hats, sunglasses, keeping to the shade and avoiding excessive exposure of the skin to the sun's radiation.
NANOPARTICLES - Humans are exposed to nanoscale particles in the environment in the form of smoke, dust, ash and fine clays through the air, food and water. Foods are also naturally composed of nanoscale components. They are used in a variety of therapeutic products including some sunscreen.
Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide were the first ingredients to be used in Australian sunscreens in nanoparticle form, however, other ingredients may be used in nanoparticle form if approved by the TGA. Evidence shows that the particles remain on the surface of the skin, which is composed of non-viable (dead) cells and pose no threat to human health . There is no evidence suggesting that nanoparticles in sunscreen are unsafe. Sunscreens deemed to be unsafe with or without nanoparticles, will not be approved and cannot be legally sold in Australia.
Skin is an excellent record keeper. Every moment of exposure to daylight adds up like money in the bank – the problem is the payoff known as sun damage (also known as photodamage). As the top cause of premature signs of skin aging, sun damage shows on skin in the form of wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, and can lead to a repressed immune system and the potential for skin cancer.
Even if exposure is limited to brief outdoor lunches or a 20-minute walk, cumulative exposure is enough to cause the signs of skin aging. The first line of daily defense against sun damage is daily use of SPF. Even on cloudy or overcast days, UV light can strike skin and cause damage, so simply wearing sunscreen on sunny days isn’t enough. Fortunately, more sophisticated sunscreen formulations with skin health benefits (think less chalky, less greasy) have made SPF a convenient addition to our morning routine. Dermalogica provides you with SPF moisturizers that can be worn comfortably under make-up, or alone to deliver defense against skin aging UV light.
Protect your skin with our range of broad spectrum spf products.

6 Ways to Prevent Body Acne

                           6 ways to prevent body acne

         Tips on how to change your lifestyle to change your skin! 

Here's how.:

1.Wear natural fibres - This helps keep skin free from congestion caused by trapped sweat, dead skin cells, excess oil and bacteria.

2.Shower after perspiring - Letting sweat linger promotes an acne-friendly environment on your skin. If you can’t shower right away, apply a product that contains Salicylic Acid to help purify and clear skin of excess oils.

3. Exfoliate - Acne-prone skin tends to shed more skin cells, which can clog pores and cause acne if they aren’t removed. Exfoliate twice a week, using a gentle non-abrassive exfoliant.

4. Moisturise - Balance the skins moisture levels so that the skin doesn't overproduce oil to overcompensate. Choose a non-comedogenic moisturiser. 

5. Clean your mobile-phone daily - Your cell phone harbors more bacteria than you know! Stop the spread of breakout causing bacteria.

6. Wash your pillowcase - Your pillowcase can collect oil, skin cells, bacteria and pore-clogging residue from hair products – all things that contribute to acne. Wash it at least once or twice a week help reduce congestion.

Spring weather arrives with puffy eyes

The glorious season of Spring has arrived, and while most of us are gearing up for some fun in the sun, outdoor picnics & barbeques, it is also known as the start of the allergy season.
Protecting your eyes from harmful rays is important year-round, but as things heat up, it becomes paramount. Your best bet is to select a pair of shades that block 100% of UV rays.
Waking up with puffy eyes can be really frustrating when you have a big day ahead. Puffy eyes occur when the eyes begin to swell for various reasons, including allergic reactions,excessive crying, excessive physical stress, genetics,hormonal changes in the body, a change in weather, sinus problems, hangovers, bad diet, Puffy eyes can make you look tired and ill.
Apply Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift in the evening after cleansing and toning using the cool, metal tip of the product tube to perform the Dermalogica Eye Lift massage. (The steps come with the product.)You can also apply it throughout the day as needed for a quick boost.
The Stress Positive Eye Lift contains Wild Indigo Seed actives illuminate the eye area and help reduce the appearance of dark circles.

This simple home remedy is surprisingly very effective. It will help tighten up the skin around your eyes as well as relax the blood vessels, thus offering relief to puffy and tired eyes.
Be it green tea bags or black tea bags, both can help soothe puffy and irritated eyes. They contain anti-irritant properties that help reduce swelling around your eyes. They can also relieve redness and inflammation. Put 2 used tea bags in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Lie down and put the tea bags over your eyelids. Leave them in place for 10 to 15 minutes.
Chilled cucumbers make a good remedy for treating puffy eyes. The enzymes and the astringent properties in cucumbers help reduce inflammation and help tighten the skin. This remedy will also help get rid of wrinkles and dark circles around your eyes
Cut a cucumber into thick slices. Chill the slices in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. Place the cold slices on your eyelids for about 10 minutes or until they become warm.

HEALTHIER SKIN BEGINS WITH STEP ZERO - NEW!!! PRECLEANSE BALM WITH MITT special price $53.00

Our skin accumulates quite a bit of "dirt" on a daily basis. Environmental pollutants in the air, as well as cosmetics such as sunsreen and waterproof make-up, combine daily with the skin's naturally sticky sebum secretions to form a thick, slick, waxy coating on the skin by the middle of the day. Despite al this buildup, most people still only spend about 20 seconds washing their faces - much less than the time they spend doing hair or make-up. Those 20 seconds with standard face washes or make-up removal wipes are not enough to penetrate the layer of sebum, pollutants and cosmetic debris that coat the skin's surface. This lack of sufficient cleansing is what inspired the development of Dermalogica's top selling PreCleanse oil cleanser and Double Cleanse techqnique. Drawing on the suc cess and legacy of PreCleanse. NEW PreCleanse Balm gives you more options to remove stubboirn makeup and achieve a professional level of clean on a daily basis.
WHAT IS IT? A water-activated, balm-to-oil version of our top-selling PreCleanse oil cleanser
HOW IT WORKS - Add water to transform this hydrophillic (water-loving) formula into a milky emulsion that deconstructs excess sebum, pollutants and residual product buildup, allowing them to easily rinse away from the skin's surface.
SKIN CONDITION - All skin conditions, especially dry.
KEY BENEFITS - Gently removes oily buildup from the skin's surface.
Dissolves buildup without compromisisng the skin barrier or clogging pores.
Fortified with conditioning essen tial fatty acids to help smooth, calm and nourish skin.
Comes with a soft-touch, double-sided mitt applicator and exfoliastor to help ensure a more thorough, professional level of clean.
APPLICATION - Squeeze tube to dispense product onto cleansing mitt or directly to dry palm of hand. Massage product into dry skin using circular motions. Add water to emulsify. Rinse and follow with recommended Dermalogica Cleanser to complete the Dermalogica Double Cleanse.

PIGMENTATION - HOW TO TREAT IT

PIGMENTATION - HOW TO TREAT IT
An uneven skin tone, called hyperpigmentation, is irregular darkening of the skin. The cause: overproduction of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin and hair color. But what exactly is hyperpigmentation, and how does it affect skin? Let’s dive deeper.
The number one cause of hyperpigmentation is exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays. And this doesn’t just apply to simple, daily exposure to UV rays alone; chemical fragrances may react with sunlight, medications may cause sun sensitivity, and dark patches may appear after invasive or strong peels where the skin has become sensitized. You may also notice hyperpigmentation during pregnancy (and post-pregnancy) in the form of Melasma (AKA Chlosma), which appears on the face, often in a butterfly formation. During times of stress skin can also hyperpigment, especially on the neck and around the temples, due to hormonal surges. Trauma to the skin (i.e. a graze on the knee, a squeeze of a spot, eczema or sinus congestion) can lead to pigmentation formation as well
You don’t have to spend a fortune on laser treatments and prescriptions. Here are ways to safely and non-invasively brighten skin for a more even skin tone:
1. Critical To A Healthy Glow Is A Smooth Skin - Enter Exfoliation!
Exfoliate. Treat existing hyperpigmentation by first sloughing off dead, dulling skin cells at the surface. Exfoliation not only smoothes skin but it also helps even out tone by speeding up the cell turnover rate, therefore assisting the removal of pigmentation patches. This clears the path for the ingredients in your serums and moisturizers to better penetrate the skin. Tip: Look for Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant for treatment deep down, stubborn, pigmented patches.
2. Shedding Light On Skin Brightening Products
Products that focus on skin brightening contain ingredients that act as melanin suppressants (the pigment that colors skin), such as the Phytic Acid found in rice. Newer ingredients, such as Zinc Glycinate, have been shown to reduce pigmentation as well as suppress the melanocyte growth factors that stimulate melanin synthesis. Many botanical extracts also inhibit melanin production, including Kiwi Fruit, Mulberry, Licorice and Giant Fennel. Apply Dermalogica C-12 Pure Bright Serum after cleansing and before moisturising to help address the pigmentation inbalance.
3. Protect and Hydrate
Once you have treated that stubborn pigmentation, now is the time to ensure that you guard against future attacks.Unprotected sun exposure is the number one culprit behind hyperpigmentation. Use Dermalogica Pure Light with spf 50 daily to ensure protection against the worst offender – UV rays! This moisturiser is packed full of hydrating ingredients so that your skin reflects light and glows.
In the evening nourish and restore skin luminosity and maximise results with Dermalogica Pure Night moisturiser containing an active blend of Oligopeptide brightening Vitamin C to help control melanin formation and hyperpigmentation while you sleep.
4. Masque
Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue masque is an all-in-one treatment masque detoxifies, brightens and invigorates normal to oily skin. Activated Binchotan Charcoal powerfully adsorbs impurities while Sulfur promotes cell turnover for dramatically brighter skin. Volcanic Ash, Sea Silt, Bamboo Extract and alpha hydroxy acids further accelerate skin brightening with dual-action exfoliation. After cleansing, apply generously to face and throat, avoiding the eye area. You may experience slight tingling. After 3 to 5 minutes, lightly massage with very wet hands to enhance exfoliation properties during removal. Rinse thoroughly.
Be patient. There's no quick fix for an uneven skin tone. Traditionally it takes at least 30 days of vigilant skin care treatment before you see any progress. Successful, 75 percent skin brightening can take up to four months, so don't give up!
                         The futures looking bright!

Teenage Skin

Teenage Skin is NOT Adult Skin We know that there may be a genetic predisposition to acne, however, teenage skin is different than adult skin, especially when it comes to acne. Hormones accompanying puberty, often as early as age 10, are actually the spark that triggers the development of breakouts & excess oiliness in the skin. With teenage acne, however, it may involve the entire face – particularly around the T-zone, forehead, nose, chin & cheeks, as well as the chest and back. Teenage Skin Is About More Than Acne: Being the most common skin complaint among teenagers, affecting nearly all of those in the 12 to 17 age bracket which brings with them an element of anxiety & social stigma, affecting their sense of self-esteem. Diet rich in high-glycemic index foods (sugars, white flour, & snacks) appear to elevate insulin levels and,in turn, can stimulate sebum production. Encouraging a healthy diet with plenty of fruits & vegetables can definitely be a step in the right direction
Hair: a lot of hair-styling products contain plastics, perfumes & other ingredients that are not healthy for skin. We often see breakouts around the hairline, cheeks & jaw when the product comes in contact with the skin. Going to bed with hair product still in place,ends up with the product getting pressed into the skin while they sleep. Perhaps replacing the pillowcase every few days, tying long hair back& brushing out styling products before bed.
Make-up: When sharing make-up at school, bacteria can be transferred from compacts, sponges, pads, lip glosses, eye pencils and mascara wands and can trigger acne or worse skin conditions, which are not things they want to share with their friends.
Before Bed: It is so important to remove make-up (along with sweat and other surface debris) from you skin before sleep. Often teens will probe & pick at their skin, squeezing breakouts, but this is can only result in long term scarring & spreading bacteria. To safely perform extractions, first properly cleanse the face and hands using Clear Start Foaming Wash, this foaming wash clears away dead skin cells, dirt and excess oils that clog pores & cause breakouts. Use on your face back neck...whever skin requires deep cleaning. After cleansing, wrap the index fingers in tissue - no dirty fingernails - Using gentle pressure, make a mound around the breakout, wiggle the impaction out, & then immediately treat the blemished area with a product containing ingredients like Salicylic Acid or Tea Tree Oil such as Clear Start Overnight Treatment works all night to fight brekouts and ensure you awake with less congestion, fewer breakouts & reduced redness.
Sensitivity and erythema: These symptoms are often the result of incorrect products such as aggressive scrubs, as well as over-drying & over-stimulating products. Harsh exfoliants, alkaline soaps & alcohol-containing astringents can strip the skin, making it sensitized & dehydrated. Clear Start Pore Control Scrub helps soak up excess oil & debris controls shine.
Teenage Skin Needs a Clear Routine: Skin at any age craves healthy ingredients and a daily routine. Most teenagers are looking for products to help banish breakouts & bacteria, control oiliness & reduce inflammation.
Formulas with medicating ingredients like Salicylic Acid & Benzoyl Peroxide, combined with gentle botanicals, are tough on breakouts, but kind to skin. An at-home regimen for day & night can be combined with targeted treatment products for extra clearing. For cleansers, the objective is not to get skin squeaky clean; a skin that squeaks is crying out for help! Teenagers often get overly-aggressive with scrubs, pads & invasive products.
Choose products that deep-clean & purify skin without stripping it of natural oils. Teenage skin requires hydration & moisture protection; the goal is not to remove every drop of sebum. A foaming wash such as Clear Start Foaming Wash with Salicylic Acid exfoliates skin cells & clears trapped oil to help wipe out existing & future breakouts, keep the skin calm and help regulate excessive sebum.
It is hip to hydrate, however, many teenagers do not understand toners. Stripping the skin with alcohol-based astringents can lead to dehydration & cause even more oil production! Purifying mists such as Clear Start All Over Toner can help control excess oil, providing excellent hydration, & eliminating breakouts on the face & body & normalize sebum secretion while Orange Peel and Lavender soothe & refresh the skin.
Exfoliation is an important step in skin care. Avoiding over-exfoliation and harsh scrubs that can tear the skin & cause more damage. Mild physical & chemical exfoliants can slough off excessive poreclogging skin cells. Try Clear Start Pore Control Scrub is tough on breakouts & gentle on your skin.
Using spot treatments on blemishes versus picking at breakouts. Popping pimples or picking at the skin can lead to further damage such as acne scars. Topical formulas such as Clear Start Emergency Spot Fix with Benzoyl Peroxide or Salicylic Acid kill breakout-causing bacteria deep within pores. They are designed to clear breakouts fast & help resist the temptation to squeeze pimples. An oil-free moisturizer such as Clear Start Matte Moisturiser can keep sebum under control with ingredients like Niacinamide, while Silicones protect skin balance without drying it out. For a hydrating formulas that control oily areas like the nose & forehead & an all-over matte finish you can use Clear Start Hydrating Lotion
We can all be appearance-conscious, but a teenager’s appearance during their formative years truly affects their self-esteem in profound & lasting ways. Teenagers actually rank appearance & facial skin in their top three priorities.Here are some useful skincare tips · Practice a proper homecare routine that includes daily cleansing. · Apply sunscreen daily. · Never pick pimples (unless you have been taught the proper extraction method). · If your hands are dirty, do not touch your face at all. · Pillowcases should be changed weekly (at least) to avoid sleeping on bacteria, saliva andexcess sebum. · If you have acne on your back or chest, sleep in a clean cotton shirt. · Keep a clean cloth for your face in your school locker, especially if you are involved withsports or other activities that cause sweating. · After cleansing, reapply any sunscreen moisturizer or product for acneic skin. · For blemishes on the forehead, avoid using hair products and wearing hats or helmets for long periods of time. · Eat a healthy and well-balanced diet. · You should not wear too much make-up to cover up blemishes. A quality, mineral can be applied lightly if needed.

What to Expect When You're Expecting

What To Expect When You're Expecting.
Every part of the body goes through changes during pregnancy, & the skin is no exception. Skin changes occur in about 90% of pregnant women, in one form or another, due to the surge of hormones. Pregnancy glow is not a myth. Blood volume increases during pregnancy by almost 50%, so vascular changes such as flushing and inflammation are not surprising. In addition to redness, sebaceous glands may produce increased secretions, giving the skin an oily sheen or shine with the result of acne & hypigmentation.
Here are some of the most common skin changes during pregnancy, as well as a short list of ingredients considered safe and others to be avoided.
The Mask of Pregnancy - Melasma – or the mask of pregnancy – is the most common change associated with pregnancy. It is characterized by irregularly shaped light or dark brown patches of hyperpigmentation. This discoloration & darkening usually found on the chin, upper lip, cheeks & forehead. Melasma cannot be prevented, but intensity can be minimized using brightening serums, such as C12 Pure Bright Serum, proper exfoliation and limiting exposure to ultraviolet light. For safe exfoliation, use Lactic Acid to resurface and brighten the skin such as Daily Microfoliant, Daily Superfoliant. Daily use of an SPF 30+ is a must. Physical sunscreens like Titanium Dioxide & Zinc Oxide tend to be preferred choices, as they reflect heat away from the skin – perfect for the pregnancy-flushed face.
Avoid using Hydroquinone during pregnancy. Studies have shown its topical use on humans is systemically absorbed.
Psoriasis, Eczema or Rosacea - If you are predisposed to psoriasis, eczema or rosacea. Symptoms can worsen for some, while conditions can improve for others during pregnancy. Reasons for this are unclear and it depends on the individual. Be aware of rashes, dry skin and general itchiness potentially coming & going during pregnancy; however, if it becomes severe, you should seek advice from your doctor.
We suggest a gentle skin care routine during your pregnancy such as cleansing gel or cream cleansers such as Essential Cleansing Solution, Special Cleansing Gel and Ultracalming cleanser which contain calming & soothing ingredients like Panthenol, Bisabolol and Red Hogweed. Barrier-building ingredients such as Oat Kernel (Avena Sativa), Sunflower Seed Extract and Borage Seed Oil reduce irritation. Opt for Redness Relief Primer with conditioning silicones and a green tint to neutralize skin sensitivity. Avoid abrasive exfoliation or harsh scrubs. Avoid the hot showers & products containing artificial fragrances, which can further aggravate sensitized skin.
Acne - The influx of the hormones progesterone, estrogen & other androgens during pregnancy can stimulate the sebaceous glands & the sweat glands, resulting in more perspiration & breakouts. With an increase in sebum, the skin becomes oilier, follicles are blocked & acne may appear on the face, & occasionally the chest & back. It is important to keep the skin clear & shine-free by opting for oil-absorbing clays such as Bentonite & Kaolin  as in Skin Refining Masque. Banish breakout-causing bacteria with Lactobacillus Ferment, Zinc Gluconate and Spirea Ulmaria Extract. If pustules and papules are the challenge, some doctors approve low concentrations of Benzoyl Peroxide as a spot treatment such as Breakout Control. High levels of Salicylic Acid are definitely a no-no. Even though studies have not been conducted on its effects topically with pregnant women, doctors anecdotally recommend that pregnant women should avoid using high concentrations of Salicylic Acid. However, small amounts of Salicylic Acid in a spot treatment or a wash-off product used once or twice a day is typically considered safe. Steer clear of products covering more areas or that sit for longer periods of time on the skin.
Lastly, retinoids are one of the skin care ingredients expectant moms should also avoid. These powerful substances help reduce wrinkles & improve skin tone, but some studies have shown high doses of Vitamin A during pregnancy can be harmful to an unborn child. Avoid prescription retinoids & oral retinoids, which are known to cause birth defects & should not be taken.

How Does Menopause Affect the Skin?

The following changes begin to occur in the skin:
Oily Skin: During the reproductive years, B-Estradiol stimulates a more fluid sebaceous gland secretion (“anti-acne” effect).  as estrogen levels decrease, testosterone is no longer masked in the woman’s body.
Testosterone reveals itself by stimulating sebaceous glands to secrete thicker sebum, giving the appearance of oily skin (and the tendency toward adult acne in some women).
Tip: Try Dermalogica Breakout Control to control excess sebum without drying effects.
Facial Hair: Also due to the unmasking of testosterone, some women may develop facial hair, particularly in the chin area.
Sagging Skin and Wrinkles: Estrogens stimulate fat deposits over the female body; as estrogen levels drop during menopause, fat deposits tend to become redistributed.
The result is a loss of supportive fat below the skin of the face, neck, hands and arms; this allows sagging wrinkles to appear.
Elastosis: Protein synthesis, particularly that of collagen and elastin, are partially controlled by estrogens and with the lowered estrogen levels result in less production and repair of collagen and elastin in the dermis of the skin.
This lack of repair is particularly pronounced if the skin is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays. UV rays are very destructive to collagen, and if we lose our repair mechanism, then we lose our skin’s resiliency. This results in elastosis.
Thinning Epidermis: The growth and maintenance of blood capillaries in the dermis are partially under the control of the estrogens. When blood flow through the dermal capillaries is reduced during menopause, and less nutrients and oxygen are available to the Stratum Germinativum or Basal Cell layers of the epidermis, it contributes to the thinning of the epidermis and a slower cell turnover rate, leading to increased trans-epidermal water loss and dry skin.
An interesting note, the cells that make up the surface of the skin are similar in structure to those of the urinary tract and vagina. When a woman begins to notice changes in her skin (wrinkling, sagging, dryness, flaking, loss of resiliency, etc.), there are similar changes occurring in the lining of the urethra, bladder and vagina. Thus, the skin may be revealing other tell-tale signs of menopause.
More Prone to Sun Damage: The maintenance of Melanocytes (cells that manufacture the pigment Melanin) is under the control of estrogens. During menopause, the number of melanocytes in the skin is reduced (they degenerate). With less melanocytes, we produce less of the protective melanin and skin appears lighter. making the skin more prone to sun damage, aware of  protecting the skin with a sunblock.
Tip: Try Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 to protect from sun damage.
Hyperpigmentation / Age Spots: Estrogens also temper melanin production. In areas of the skin that have been exposed to UV rays over the years, as menopause arrives, melanin synthesis increases (due to lack of regulation by estrogen). This can result in brown “age spots” appearing on the face, hands, neck, arms and chest of many women.
Tip: Try Power Bright treatment kit to treat hyperpigmentation.
Hot Flashes: Hot flashes are typically defined by a strong sense of warmth in the skin, (mainly the face), followed by excessive sweating. It had long been thought that hot flashes were caused directly by the abrupt lowering of B-Estradiol levels, but we now know that a woman’s sympathetic nervous system is more active after menopause because of low estrogen, causing the dilation of skin arterioles and sweating, as well as the rise in body temperature and an increase in heart rate. Hour-to-hour changes in the secretion of the Luteinizing Hormone (LH) from the pituitary gland of post-menopausal women have also been associated with hot flashes.
Tip: Try Dermalogica Antioxidant HydraMist to refresh and firm the skin.
Menopause affects much more than the skin. Some possible internal symptoms can include dizziness, numbness, heart palpitations, insomnia, backaches and dry mouth,
among others.

  • SKIN CARE TIPS FOR THE BEST SKIN.

If you’ve been following awards season this year, you can’t have missed seeing the flawlessly dewy skin of Hollywood’s A-list stars who absolutely nailed this look at
The Oscars. Glowing,luminous,skin has been on trend for the past few seasons and it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
So what’s their secret?
Well, if you want to replicate the results it’s all about ‘acing your base’!
Think of your skin as a ‘canvas’ for your makeup. The perfect picture always starts with the perfect prime, the better the canvas preparation the better the end result.
Here are 5 simple steps to ‘acing your base’!
1.. Perform a thorough Cleanse
This may sound like an obvious step, but you’d be surprised how many people get it wrong. One of the most common mistakes is spending sufficient time and using incorrect products, both of which can pay a heavy toll on the skin.
It’s important to always double cleanse, the first time with a deep cleansing oil such as Dermalogica PreCleanse to remove all traces of surface dirt and congestion,
and the second with your preferred Dermalogica cleanser. Concentrate on areas that feel congested or have bumpiness.
Ensure to remove your cleanser thoroughly.

2..Exfoliation
The smoother and softer the skin, the more perfect the finish.
After thoroughly cleansing, it’s time to apply a Rice Bran based microfoliation powder. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. This gentle product will brighten the skin and
‘polish’ the surface leaving a super smooth, luminous finish. Using a gentle product such as this means that you won’t have to worry about over-exfoliation, which can result in redness and sensitivity showing through your makeup.

3..Hydration
To treat any dehydration lines and dry patches, apply a fine layer of a hydrating serum.
Look for Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster that contains Hyaluronic Acid
(an incredible ingredient that has the power to hold 1,000 times its own weight in moisture within the skin). This extra boost of hydration will add volume and plumpness to the skin, leaving a dewy finish.

4.. Moisturise
If you’re prone to an oily shine, apply a ‘treatment’ moisturizer, such as Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier or Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion. These mattifying moisturizers are
super lightweight, oil-free and contain clever ingredients to control shine such as Niacinamide(reduces excess skin oils) and Enantia Chlorantha Bark (reduces pore size, oil flow and creates less shine). If your skin is dry, try to avoid heavy, oily moisturizers, as these tend toencourage your makeup to slide off. Instead, use a lightweight moisturizer that contains a complex of vitamins A, C, E, Panthenol (B5), as well as nourishing essential fatty acids such as Shea Butter, Evening Primrose, Borage Seed or Jojoba oils.
Look at Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream or Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance,
or for an oil-free lightweight moisturiser to hydrate combinaton skin Dermalogica Active Moist.

5.. Primer
The piece de resistance of your flawless finish. Dermalogica AGE smart skinperfect primer contains velvety silicones as they help even the skin texture, creating an instantly smooth surface for your foundation to go on.
Primers such as Dermalogica Hydrablur contains natural earth minerals such as Pearl Powder will provide a perfect natural tint, balancing the skin tone, diminishing blemishes but not adding too much colour.
A good primer will enhance the skin’s luminosity and radiance, hold your makeup in place and increases the lasting power of makeup on the skin.
Dermalogica have treatment primers that go beyond the function of a makeup base and will work to treat your skin condition whether it is oily,pigmented or dry.
Dermalogica Redness Relief Primer contain SPF to protect against UV

The Positive Side of Stress.

The condition of stress has been placed into two categories, DISTRESS or EUSTRESS.Distress is the 'bad stuff' it is excessive and or prolonged levels of stress on the body.This stress fuels feelings of strain, anxiety and defeat, as well as depression. This is the stuff that takes us off our 'A' game, we just don't or can't perform at our best, feel overwhelmed, don't think clearly or react to situations as well. It leads to exhaustion, fatigue, burn-out, bursts of depression and has a negative impact on our health. Eustress is the 'good' stuff', the positive, beneficial kind. This is the kind that atheletes need to drive them to win, the stress we feel on a first date, musicians and actors all feel before going out onstage. This stress drives our motivation and feelings of accomplishment.              CAN SOME STRESS ACTUALLY BE GOOD FOR OUR HEALTH?                    Researchers believe that some stress can help to fortify our body's immune system by improving how your heart works helping to protect the body from infection. Those who experienced moderate levels of stress before surgery were able to recover faster than individuals who had low or high levels.                                                                        PREMATURE AGEING Stress can be the culprit for increased levels of dehydration, with skin losing volume, looks lifeless, flakey, and tight. Fine dehydration lines are particularly apparent around the eyes and give us a tired appearance. Pigmentation caused by an over-secretion of cortisone which is attracted to the melanin resulting in excess pigment and skin discolouration.                                                                                      BREAKOUTS  Stress is a direct trigger of breakouts as a result of hormonal fluctuations in the skin stimulating the sebaceous gland activity.                                                             EYE PUFFINESS  Poor sleep, water retention in the tissues and capillaries that can stretch and leak can all lead to eye puffiness as can lack of proper nutrition. Often when we are feeling stressed we reach for junk food, processed foods and excess salt intake can generate puffiness under the eyes. Lack of sleep can worsen the appearance of dark circles. If you're tired the blood circulation tends to slow down, allowing oxygenated blood to pool and become more visible under the thin skin around the eyes, giving dark circles a more purplish hue.                                                                                                  SOLUTION: Powerful cosmecuticals, key players being anti-oxidants, peptides such as olgiopeptide for pigmentation and for lines, retinol. sebum regulating ingredients, professional exfoliation.                                                                                       Dermalogicas new Stress Positive Eye Lift   is an amazing new product that you simply must try.                                                                                                                             First you exfoliate with Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant then apply Stress Positive Eye Lift   This active, cooling cream-gel masque minimises the appearance of puffiness and dark circles, increases skin luminosity, lifts the eye area and helps restore skin barrier integrity. Hyaluronic Acid blend firms skin to help generate a lifting effect.                                             Super Tip You can also apply lightly over makeup for extra luminosity or use as an inflight pick me up for tired eyes.

Nightly Lip Treatment - No need for anti-wrinkle injections

Nightly Lip Treatment NEW PRODUCT
Say goodnight to lip lines as Dermalogicas new Lip Treatment smoothes away the appearance of laugh and feather lines while you sleep. This rich overnight formula firms, hydrates, and restores skin on and around the lips , improves skin elasticity, and helps control aging before it starts.
No need for anti-wrinkle injections and lip enhancements, here is your answer.
As we age, the formation of vertical lines above the upper lip, sagging in the mouth region, and feathering outside of the lips become more pronounced – especially for those with a history of smoking. Though the eyes are often thought to show the first signs of aging, the lip and mouth area develop some of the most dramatic visible differences.
Lips lack the same composition of oil and sweat glands that provide moisture to other areas of the face, while at the same time, saliva dries out lips’ natural oils. As a result, moisture evaporates from lips faster than the rest of the face, contributing to visible lines and feathering. The fat storage in our face changes, it disappears from our face and moves to our middle! We see folds starting to appear and lines and wrinkles forming due not only to the movement of fat cells, but also collagen and elastin breakdown. This nightly lip treatment is not just a superficial cream for the lip area, the ingredients are powerful workhorses literally working on those fat cells in the perioral region to bring about a change and help to increase volume.

CHOOSING THE BEST PRIMER FOR YOUR SKIN

What's The Best Primer For Your Skin?

In much the same way that a painter uses primer to smooth a surface so paint better adheres to it, facial primers even out the surface of the skin, providing a smoother canvas for a lasting make-up finish — or a natural, no make-up look. The last step in a skin care regimen, a primer also acts as a protective barrier and helps seal in the benefits of skin care products. 

While the majority of cosmetic makeup primers focus on improving the appearance and wear of make-up, Dermalogica Primers bridge the divide between skin care and color cosmetics by optimizing skin health benefits to improve the look and feel of the skin.

 

HydraBlur Primer is the ideal multi-tasking primer for all skin conditions, particularly dry or dehydrated skin. A lightweight, non-greasy formula, it powerfully hydrates and transforms skin into an even surface with its neutral tint and dramatic "blurring" effect.

 

SkinPerfect Primer SPF30 is a make-up primer, sunscreen and treatment for skin aging in one. Designed to control and prevent skin-aging triggers, it helps fill fine lines and improve skin firmness while balancing skin tone and enhancing luminosity.

 

 

Redness Relief Primer SPF15 counteracts telltale skin redness and balances skin tone with a natural, sheer green tint while shielding skin from environmental irritation.

 

 Dermalogica Primers can be worn alone or underneath make-up for a flawless finish.
