It shocked me just as much as it probably surprised you that winter is actually the time that pollution is the worst. With all of the recent studies about how air pollution accelerates the process of skin aging and how this is becoming a growing issue, it’s not surprising that the skincare brand everyone loves and trusts is launching a product that will address this issue, Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant (details below for their biggest launch for 2017!!).
They’ll also be introducing their NEW Skin Detox FaceFit Treatment (details below my signature) and are now launching SkinPollution.com, which educates consumers on how air pollution accelerates the process of skin aging by providing a local pollution index based on geolocation/zip code and will link pollution to its adverse effects on skin health through a series of facts. Lots of cool innovations taking place with the brand! Are you traveling anywhere over the holiday break where you’d be able to check SkinPollution.com while you’re gone and report back to measure as compared to NYC?!
Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant ($58.00; Will be available January 1st at authorized Dermalogica® spas, salons and skin centers nationwide, Ulta Beauty, Bluemercury, and Dermalogica.com):
The newest addition to Dermalogica’s microfoliation powder-form products and due to popular demand of the best-selling Daily Microfoliant, DailySuperfoliant draws on the brand’s innovative exfoliation legacy to deliver to consumers a highly-active, grey powder resurfacer to provide advanced microfoliation. This next-gen powder exfoliant is a beauty industry game-changer, providing a daily detox from skin-aging pollution, while leaving the skin ultra-smooth. Formulated for everyday use for skin types that require more aggressive treatment, this product shields against aging/environmental pollution known to cause brown spots, fine lines and uneven skin tones, while detoxifying and providing antioxidant protection.
Purge Pollution from Pores with NEW Skin Detox FaceFit Treatment
10 Minute, $10 Service Resurfaces, Detoxifies, and Helps Fight Skin-Aging Pollution
Purge pollutants from pores and smooth away the day in just 10 minutes with Dermalogica’s new Skin Detox FaceFit Treatment ($10.00). This express service, launching January 3, 2017 draws on Dermalogica’s newDaily Superfoliant to resurface and detoxify skin, reduce the signs of aging, and help protect skin from harmful environmental pollutants. The result is visibly smoother and refreshed skin – in a flash!
Each Skin Detox FaceFit Treatment starts with a consultation to learn about clients’ skin health and areas of concern; skin therapists provide a Face Mapping® skin analysis to determine signs of sensitivity, uneven skin tone, and signs of aging, and use Dermalogica® Residue Detector Strips to reveal residue and pollution build-up on the skin.
The therapist will perform Dermalogica’s signature double-cleanse to fully remove makeup and debris, starting with PreCleanse Oil and following with custom cleanser and ultrasonic exfoliation. Next, Daily Superfoliant is mixed with water for a creamy, smooth consistency and applied to skin with an exclusive technique that helps detoxify and resurface the skin while focusing on key areas that tend to collect pollution build-up, which can contribute to congestion, dullness, and hyperpigmentation. Ultrasonic technology may be used to accelerate skin resurfacing. Moisturizer and SPF follow to hydrate and protect, and clients leave with noticeably smoother, brighter skin in just ten minutes.
Both Daily Superfoliant and the Skin Detox FaceFit Treatment have been created by Dermalogica® to address the visible effects of air pollution on the skin. Research has found that air pollution from traffic and soot can increase pigmentation spots by 20%, and just a few hours of smog exposure may reduce natural antioxidant Vitamin E in skin by 25%. Pollution isn’t just a city problem: farming and industrial activity, as well as lifestyle habits can contribute to pollution-related skin aging: heavy smokers are nearly 5 times more likely to show facial wrinkles than non-smokers. With the World Health Organization citing that 92% of people around the world breathe air that is substandard, it’s more important than ever to protect and preserve skin health with consistent, targeted care.
The Skin Detox FaceFit Treatment is offered for $10.00 at Ulta Beauty and Dermalogica® flagship locations nationwide starting January 3, 2017. Walk-ins are welcome; no appointment is required. Share on social media: @dermalogica #dailysuperfoliant.
Dermalogica® revolutionized the skin care industry when it emerged into the marketplace in 1986 with innovative formulations, which excluded common irritants, including SD alcohol, lanolin, mineral oil and artificial colors and fragrances. Jane Wurwand developed the products to better support the advanced curriculum she had developed a few years earlier for The International Dermal Institute, which she also founded. Wurwand led the company’s growth from an idea to the world’s most-requested professional skin care brand.
Dermalogica® today is sold in more than 100 countries worldwide. Dermalogica products are available in select skin treatment centers on the recommendation of a qualified professional skin therapist in addition to the brand’s concept spaces located around the world and online at Dermalogica.com. Dermalogica® is made in the USA, with its global operations based in Carson, just south of Los Angeles. To learn more about Dermalogica®, please visit www.dermalogica.com.
