Great skin starts with a great daily cleansing routine in just 3 simple but 3 very crucial steps..
Skip a step in the cleansing routine on a daily basis and over time you start to recognise that your mission for great skin health is being compromised and here’s why..
Step 1 – Pre Cleanse
Purpose: To totally remove from skin the daily build-up of dirt, pollution and makeup and ultimately prepare skin for Step 2 – The Second Cleanse.
After the Pre Cleanse step – the Second Cleanse can effectively work at cleansing the skin cell follicles themselves without obstruction which without the Step 1 – Pre Cleanse process the second cleanser would be comprised in its ability to do this as effectively.
How to use:
Apply a small pump amount into palms of clean, dry hands. Apply to face, neck and decollete. Thoroughly cleanse skin working product across the chest, up the neck and all over the face concentrating on groves of face eg. around nostrils and down the nose, work into the eyebrows, over the eyes and roots of lashes and take product up to the hairline.
Wet palms to emulsify the product and work over all areas again before removing thoroughly using dampened cotton discs. Now skin is ready for Step 2 – Second Cleanse.
Step 2 – Second Cleanse
Purpose: targeted treatment cleansing to prevent or manage or treat specific skin concerns such as blackheads, congestion and blemishes, oily, dry or sensitised skin areas etc.
Majority will stop their cleanse routine after Step 1 however to properly manage skin cell impurities and aid skin cell purification and speed up cell turnover the Second Cleanse is a vital and necessary initial step to improve skin health.
The second cleanser should therefore be appropriately selected to serve a skin concern and should be worked into clean skin for at least 2 minutes before thoroughly rinsing off or removing with dampened cotton discs.
*Dermalogica range of cleansers with their varied formulations are targeted to treat specific skin concerns such as dry skin, reactive, sensitised skin, oily, combination skin, breakout skin and ageing skin showing signs of pigmentation.

Step 3 – Exfoliate
To keep skin looking young and fresh it needs to be exfoliated regularly. This prevents a dulling effect on the skin which effectively is dead skin cells sitting on the surface of the skin. Whilst not all exfoliators are suitable for daily use Dermalogicas’ Daily and Super Microfoliants are however ideal for daily use as they effectively micro exfoliate skin revealing smoother, brighter, fresher younger looking skin

If short on time – add some daily microfoliant to the second cleanser and work into skin for 1-2 minutes before rinsing off
- Always clean your face using warm tepid water and Never hot water as this strips the skin of essential moisture
- Always follow the cleansing routine with Toner. *Toner should be considered as another skin conditioning treatment to be applied before serums and moisturisers
- Always finish the cleansing routine with moisturiser and if it doesn’t contain an SPF consider to apply a light layer of SPF over moisturiser to protect skin from harmful UV rays.
* Dermalogicas’ SPFs are broad spectrum that protect skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays and they have SPF formulations to protect all skin types including re-active, sensitive skin types, oily, breakout skin etc. For more information about Dermalogica various SPFs click on the link here
