By Lisa Young – Salon Director


Dermalogica skincare productSkincare brands that promise you miracles and the answers to all our skin problems is a big market. Just flick through the pages of glossy magazines to find a magnitude of products and articles on the latest cutting edge ingredients or must have products.

They all promise the answer to your skin problems and they all seem too good to be true !


But are there really products that deliver results and is there any truth in the claims that they make ?


Yes there is and one example is Dermalogica, a skincare brand that has been around for over 20 years and has lasted the test of time.

The Dermalogica skincare brand provides expert skincare solutions combined with professional expert knowledge and advice for everyday skin problems.


Did you know that it has been regularly voted the number 1 choice of skincare professionals and is one of the leading skin care systems in the world today ?


This year Dermalogica has been voted the Industry Skincare Supplier Award 2016 !

Yeah, yeah, yeah you say, isn’t that what they all say and as a consumer you don’t want to waste your hard earned cash on yet another skincare wonder so here are a few facts about the Dermalogica skincare brand to put your mind at rest.

Dermalogica was founded by a British therapist living in the US (Jane Wurland). She started developing products for use in her own treatments because there was simply nothing available that she was happy with.

Jane, like other British trained therapists who trained in the 1980’s (like myself), were trained to understand the biology of skin, what natural ingredients were suitable to treat the skin and how to mix their own products. There were no premixed masques and products back then. So Jane used her understanding to develop skincare products that incorporated this philosophy, making products that could be used prescriptively for each individual client’s needs.


And that’s how Dermalogica began !


So whether it’s:

  • Acne.
  • Aging.
  • Dryness.
  • Dehydration.
  • Excess oil.
  • Pigmentation.
  • Sun damage.

There is a Dermalogica product in the range for everyone. The skincare brand has now developed to become the number 1 choice of skincare professionals world-wide. Dermalogica skincare therapists are some of the highest trained skincare therapists in the world and are passionate and knowledgeable about skin.

However, what makes Dermalogica stand out from the rest, is that the brand has developed to use cutting edge advancements in skincare, technology and skin-science principles to treat and protect the skin. This enables healthy & youthful skin via skincare products that offer extensive benefits.



Some facts about Dermalogica Skincare:

When you listen to teams enthusiasm about skin and the Dermalogica products they use you immediately sense their passion for skincare and Dermalogica. They live and breathe Dermalogica … skincare junkies they joke !



So how can YOU get started with Dermalogica skincare ?

The best place to start is to book yourself in for a complimentary Face mapping analysis (how a Dermalogica Skincare Therapist assesses your skin and understands your skin’s needs).

Starting your Dermalogica skincare journey is really easy and cost effective with the purchase of a Dermalogica Skin Kit. An ingenious start up pack that gives you all you need to start your skincare regime for the next 30 – 45 days for ONLY £26.35.

You can guarantee that within a week you will see a noticeable difference in the overall health of your skin. Skin that was once tired, dull and lack lustre becomes brightened and glowing. Dry patches will be revitalised and nourished and the overall your skin will appear more hydrated, plump and firm.

If you like the products, and we know you will, when you return for the full size products you will find that that the pricing is in line with the majority of professional products. A bit like professional hair products – a little bit goes a long way. So whilst you pay slightly more than the usual consumer brands (£28 for a Special Cleansing Gel cleanser) you can be assured that you are getting a good quality ingredient and concentrated brand where a little goes a long way. No cheap irritating fillers with Dermalogica ! You can expect a 250 ml bottle to last 3-4 months and even using it twice daily means that it costs only 23 pence a day, which is very reasonable.

Dermalogica is a prescriptive product so it is important to start with a consultation, or as Dermalogica refers to it … Face Mapping.


So what are you waiting for? Come and reap the Dermalogica Skincare BENEFITS.
