New ultra-nourishing moisturiser from Dermalogica that restores lipid balance to dry, depleted skin for optimal barrier performance.
Dry skin has a compromised lipid barrier. Use Intensive Moisture Balance alongside Intensive Moisture Cleanser to help restore your skin's lipid barrier to defend against dryness and preserve moisture.
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.
