Guide to Dermalogica Products

Founded nearly 40 years ago by a skin therapist, Dermalogica provides professional-grade skin care products. Offering products for all skin types, their skin care range is cruelty-free, contains only natural ingredients and works to achieve results that are long lasting.

Establishing Your Skin Type

Dermalogica products are specially formulated for individual skin types. For example, someone with drier skin will benefit more from a hydrating moisturiser than someone with say, oilier skin. Establishing your skin type and understanding any skin conditions is the first step to finding the best products to use. 

Skin type vs. skin condition

Firstly, let’s understand the difference between your skin type and a skin condition. Your type is the skin that you were born with. A condition is something that affects your skin either permanently or temporarily such as irritation and acne. Dermalogica’s face mapping tool is a fantastic ally when understanding your skin. It outlines which areas of your face are dry and oily and helps to diagnose particular skin conditions. All of this information will enable you to purchase the best skin care products to use.

Normal to Combination Skin

We all have times when our skin is not its best. As a living organ, it’s affected by a range of stressors such as lifestyle changes, hormones, weather, stress levels and more. For normal to combination skin types, we recommend finding a cleanser, toner and moisturiser that your skin loves and then combining these with treatments that are targeted to your skin’s day-to-day condition. The Dermalogica PreCleanse cleanser is great for these skin types and provides a solid foundation for your skincare regime.

Breakout Prone Skin

If your skin is prone to breakouts and acne then it’s important to understand what it is, why it occurs and the best skin care treatments for it. We all experience spots from time to time - as the body goes through changes such as puberty and pregnancy, hormone and stress levels are raised which can make skin more prone to breakouts. Dermalogica offers a comprehensive range of skincare products so you are sure to find something that works for your skin and keeps unwanted spots at bay.

Oily Skin

We have a protective barrier that prevents pollutants and other irritants from getting into the skin - that’s healthy. But if you are prone to oily skin, it’s because your sebaceous glands are creating too much oil which can lead to breakouts and acne. It’s a common skin type and oil levels can be controlled with a good skin care routine. We would recommend including the Dermalogica Retinal Clearing Oil to use as a corrective serum as it works overnight to help clear skin.

Dry Skin

Dry skin is where your skin is lacking in oil. The protective barrier caused by oil has collapsed and your skin is vulnerable to dirt, irritants and pollutants. This is why dry skin can be prone to sensitivity, inflammation and dehydration, as the collapsed barrier also causes moisture to escape. Incorporating a quality moisturiser into your skin care regime will help to restore your skin’s oil and moisture levels and rebuild its protective barrier. We recommend moisturising twice a day and incorporating the Dermalogica Super Rich Repair into your skin care routine.

Perfect Your Skin Care Regime for Best Results

No matter your skin care type, finding a skin care routine that works for you is the best way to maintain clear skin. For a comprehensive range of Dermalogica products, check out our collections at
