Hydrate, surface and protect.
Intensive Moisture Cleanser features a lipid-enriched surfactant system that makes it twice as effective at removing long-wear make-up whilst nourishing the skin.
Cleansers can damage the skins lipid barrier, which leaves skin feeling dry and tight. Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Cleanser helps preserve your skin's lipids so it doesn't feel dry cleansing.
Together with Intensive Moisture Balance these Dermalogica innovations can help make a life-changing difference for those of us with dry skin, as they help break the endless cycle of lipid depletion and dehydration by proactively maintaining a healthy skin lipid barrier.
What causes dry skin?
The latest scientific insights reveal that healthy skin starts with the right balance of a strong lipid barrier, hydration, and an optimal microbiome (aka microbial environment). If any of these factors are imbalanced, the skin will look and feel compromised.
How does Dermalogica help?
Switch cleansers to a nourishing, lipid-enriched formula like Intensive Moisture Cleanser that removes impurities while minimising damage of critical barrier lipids. This can help preserve moisture and solve dry skin concerns.
In addition to minimising lipid damage from harsh cleansing, it is important to moisturise with Intensive Moisture Balance which contains nourishing lipids, as well as ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, to help support barrier recovery and restore hydration.
Applying a hydrating toner after cleansing and before moisturising can also help enhance results.
You may also want to avoid cleansing with hot water, which can further damage their lipid barrier and dry out your skin. Instead try using lukewarm water, and cover skin when applicable (for example, while hand washing dishes).
Wearing sunscreen to limit UV damage can also help protect your skin barrier.
