Current Skincare Rountine

Hello lovelies, today's post is all about my current skincare routine. I love to swap and change up my skincare products all the time but there is always one trusty brand I always go back to which is Dermalogica. I have been a beauty therapist for the past 5 years and I trained in Dermalogica in 2010, I've got to say the training was absolutely amazing! Not only did I learn about the products and treatments, I learnt about the science of the skin in great depth. 
Dermalogica as a brand are dedicated to skin health rather than putting money into fancy packaging, their products really do work and are 100% worth every penny! The 500ml size Essential Cleansing Solution cleanser which retails for £48.50 lasted me over a year which works out to be about £4 per month, so even though the products are a little on the pricey side they are great value for money and last ages!

Here are the current skincare products I am using from Dermalogica and a little information about each one...

Cleanser- Dermalogica Essential Cleansing Solution - LINK
As I have quite dehydrated skin my favourite cleanser to use from the Dermalogica range is the Essential Cleansing Solution. It is a rich, creamy cleanser that removes impurities whilst replenishing the skin and maintaining moisture levels. I use this morning and evening as part of my skincare routine. 

Exfoliator - Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant - LINK
This product has got to be one of my favourites from Dermalogica, I think a lot of other people agree as it's one of their best sellers. It's basically a powder based exfoliant, once mixed with water it activates and releases Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes that gently polish away dead skin cells and leave the skin looking smoother and brighter. This exfoliant is gentle enough to use everyday and is great for anyone that suffers from sensitive skin as it's not abrasive to the skin. I use this product once a day, usually in the evening so products penetrate deeper and i'm not applying makeup straight after.     
I have spoken about this 'hero' product in a previous blog post, if you would like to check it out then click HERE :) 

Toner - Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner - LINK
A lot of other toners from other brands are very astringent and alcohol based which strips the skin of its natural oils, but the reason I love the Multi-Active Toner is because it's really hydrating, refreshing and like a drink of water to the skin. You simply spritzer it all over the skin, then apply your moisturiser. I use this morning and evening.

Moisturiser - Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream - LINK
This is a medium-weight cream that helps to smooth, hydrate and protect skin from environmental assaults and pollution. It also helps to combat dry skin and and reduce the signs of premature ageing. I use this moisturiser as my day time and night time moisturiser.  

Day Time Eye Cream - Dermalogica Total Eye Care SPF15 - LINK
I absolutely love this product. It has an SPF to shield the skin from UVA rays and it also has a very slight tint. This helps to diffuse light and help hide dark under eye circles. This is a really gentle formula which is great for anyone with sensitive skin or contact lens wearers. I apply this in the morning before my moisturiser, blending inwards from the outer eye. 

Night Time Eye Cream - Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair - LINK
As I have previously said, I have quite dehydrated skin; therefore this can lead to premature ageing and fine dehydration lines if i'm not using a great skincare routine. I used to suffer from dehydration lines under my eyes and this eye cream really helped minimize this. This ultra-rich cream helps to improve dehydration lines, elasticity and smooth skin texture. I apply this every night before my moisturiser. 

I really hope you enjoyed this post guys!
