Answering Some Common Skincare Questions

We’re always happy to answer questions when our clients and customers ask for our expertise, and we often have the same questions asked time and again by different people. That’s why, we thought it would be a good idea to put together a post containing some of the most common questions we get asked, to help all of our readers:

Where in my daily routine should I use a clay mask?

Well, this question is quite simple – you shouldn’t! Obviously, we love clay masks, but they don’t need to be used on a daily basis by anyone, even those of us with the oiliest skin. We recommend using a clay mask once a week as a treat for your skin to help balance oil and calm redness, but any more than this and you could dry your skin out too much.

Do I need to moisturise if I have oily skin?

YES! People with oily skin often make the mistake of thinking that they don’t need to moisturise, but actually, excess oil production is actually a rebound effect caused by dry skin. Dermalogica Matte Moisturiser SPF15 will balance the oiliness of your skin while adding a healthy dose of moisture, and will even protect your skin against the sun.

I like in the UK, the sun is a rare treat – do I really need SPF every day?

So many people in the UK fail to wear daily sun protection because they think the sun isn’t strong enough here to affect their skin, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. The UK sun is more than strong enough to damage your skin so using something like Decleor Anti-Pollution Hydrating Fluid SPF30 will give you sun the protection it needs.

What is my skin type?

The best person to determine your skin type is you and no-one knows your skin as well as you do. It’s a pretty simple process to work out if your skin is dry, oily, sensitive or a combination of several skin types. Our blog post will help you to decide what your skin type is, to allow you to buy the best products for your skin.

What can I do to brighten my skin?

Dull, lifeless skin is one of the most common complaints of our customers, and it’s something that often takes a combination of products to improve. One of the best pieces of advice that we can give is to invest in the Dermalogica PowerBright TRx Treatment Kit, which contains a selection of miniature products to brighten the skin and improve skin tone, so you can see if they work for you before buying the full-size products.
