skin routineYou might feel as though you’ve got your skincare routine dialled in with a solid “cleanse, tone and moisturise” using your favourite products, but if you’re still having issues then it may be that the products you’re using are not quite right for you. Today, we’re looking at some common skincare issues and where you may be going wrong with your products.

Dry Patches

If you’re suffering with areas of dryness, there’s a good chance that your products aren’t rich enough to deeply moisturise your skin. There’s also a chance that your current cleanser is a little too harsh, so switching to a gentle cleanser like Decleor Phytopeel Smooth Exfoliating Cream will allow you to gently remove dead skin and debris, while Decleor 24 Hour Hydrating Cream Rich will keep your skin hydrated all day long.


If you suffer with acne and have regular breakouts despite having a skincare routine in place, it could mean that your selection of products simply isn’t medicated or strong enough to deal with such a complex skin complaint. Opting for products from the MediBac range from Dermalogica will help you to target the cause of your acne and get it under control, giving you clearer skin in the long term.

Oily Skin

The cause of oily skin can be quite complicated – sometimes, it’s because the products you’re using are too rich but sometimes it can be because your skin is highly sensitised due to dryness and your skin responding with too much sebum to overcompensate. The Dermalogica UltraCalming Sensitised Skin Treatment Kit contains everything you need to help to soothe and repair sensitive skin, helping you to regain balance.


Wrinkles are, for most of us, a fact of life and simply a side effect of getting older. However, if you moisturise daily but still feel as though your skin is ageing at an exponential rate, it may be that your products don’t contain enough anti-ageing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid. Decleor Energising Smoothing Cream SPF15 contains active ingredients which will fight fine lines and the signs of ageing, as well as containing SPF to protect against further damage from the sun.

Ingrown Hairs

Lots of people who shave regularly suffer with ingrown hairs, especially people who shave their faces, however there are plenty of products you should be using to combat this problem. Decleor Triple Action Shave Perfector is a super serum which softens hair, opens the pores and protects the skin before, during and after shaving to ensure you avoid ingrown hairs and shaving rash.
