Sensitive skin means something different to everyone. Some people experience mild, occasional flare-ups, while others suffer from ongoing intense redness and discomfort.
With lots of different causes and triggers (genetics, stress, diet, cosmetic ingredients, allergies and pollution) and sensitivity not being restricted to a particular skin type (dry, normal, oily etc), it can be tough to eliminate the origin of your skin sensitivity.
A new way to monitor environmental triggers
To help identify potential triggers, Dermalogica has just launched a Skin Sensitivity Risk barometer. The online tool looks at the temperature, pollution, and humidity in your area, and produces a sensitivity risk scores based on these factors. Take it for a test drive and see if it can help manage your skin sensitivity.
A new way UltraCalming Duo to treat skin sensitivity
While identifying sensitivity causes can be tough, finding a product that can address your specific sensitivity without identifying the cause can be tougher. To make it easier, Dermalogica has just released it’s UltraCalmingTM Duo; two products that treat the top three concerns of everyone who has sensitive skin: redness, irritation and dehydration. Both the Calm Water Gel and Barrier Defense Booster combine the best of nature’s botanical extracts with innovation from The International Dermal Institute to soothe skin sensitivity. The Duo joins Dermalogica’s UltraCalming range of products and can be used separately, or layered for maximum effect.
Barrier Defense Booster – this concentrated oil booster soothes and nourishes to restore balance to sensitive skin. Ideally it applied before the Calm Water Gel.
Calm Water Gel – this weightless water-gel moisturiser hydrates dry, sensitive skin. The unique formula transforms into a skin-quenching fluid upon application, forming a weightless barrier to help protect skin against environmental assault. Dual Hyaluronic Acid technology works in different skin surface layers to increase and lock in moisture.
