A Guide to Dermalogica Moisturisers, Cleansers and Makeup Removers

Which Dermalogica Moisturiser Should I Use

Contrary to popular belief, moisturisers do more than just moisturising the skin. Alongside leaving the skin feeling smooth and hydrated, they also help to create a barrier against harmful environmental agents and can prevent future breakouts.

With Dermalogica offering such an extensive range of moisturisers, eye creams, face balms and more, it can be difficult to determine which moisturiser is best suited to your skin. To give you a clearer understanding of the Dermalogica range, we have detailed which moisturisers are best for each skin condition and their key benefits.

Which Dermalogica Cleanser Should I Use

Cleansers are brilliant for maintaining fresh, clean skin and reducing your chances of future breakouts. A good cleanser will successfully remove any unwanted debris from the surface of the skin including stubborn waterproof makeup, oil from SPF products and environmental damage. However, using the wrong cleanser for your skin can do more harm than good and possibly leave your skin feeling irritated and dry.

We understand it can be difficult to find to find the right cleanser, so we have listed some of our top picks from Dermalogica to help point you in the right direction.

Which Dermalogica Product is best for makeup renewal

We can all relate to being so tired that the thought of removing your makeup before bed is just not an option. This can be ok on a one-off occasion, however, sleeping with your makeup on regularly can have detrimental effects on your skins health and overall appearance.

These effects include:
