Skin care routine

CLEANSER
Since I was sixteen I’ve loved dermalogica and have used it ever since. I started off with their ultra calming cleanser because I had the typical “teenage skin”. Dry and sensitive with a lot of redness. I used that cleanser for a while before I change over to their special cleansing gel. Since I have a combination of sensitive to dry skin I need something that is mild and dermalogica provides that for me. I also love that you can remove any make-up with their cleansers, even though I always use a face wipe beforehand.
SCRUB
I started off using their daily microfoliant that gently exfoliates any skin type. It’s rice-based powder activates with water leaving your skin smoother and brighter.
After a while though I wanted something that gave me an even deeper exfoliation. And the skin prep scrub treatment gave me exactly that. It also improves absorption of moisturizing creams and treatments. You only need a small amount and I use this once to twice a week. Preferably with an exfoliating scrub to maximize the use of the product.

FACE CREAM
After the cleanser and possible also the scrub I finish of my skin care routine with my all time favorite, the skin smoothing cream. I’ve used this since I started with the brand and haven’t found a cream better suited for my skin. It’s perfect if you have a combination/dry skin. And if I have extremely dry periods I’ve found myself using dermalogica’s intensive moisture balance cream. This is an ultra-rich moisturizer for dry skin, perfect for cold winter days.

EYE CREAM
From the age of twenty it is recommend to use an eye cream and since I’ve just had a baby and a lot of sleepless nights this is a must for me. Right now I’ve only used tester and therefor haven’t chosen one that I must have. But to apply your eye cream properly you use your ring finger which gives the least amount of pressure and gently dap a little bit under the eye and upwards towards the temples.

I will definitely keep on using dermalogica because this is one of my all time favorite skin care brands. It’s affordable and it lasts from 6 months to a year which is definitely worth the money.
