NEW! Daily Superfoliant

 

It's official: research has confirmed that daily exposure to air pollution leads to visible signs of skin ageing.1, 2 Like UV radiation from the sun, air pollution is largely an invisible threat. However, its effects on the skin are highly visible, ranging from hyperpigmentation and fine dehydration lines to a weakened skin structure and increased sensitivity. All of these effects can make the skin look and feel older than it really is.

As a professional skin therapist, it is important to educate your clients about the skin-ageing effects of pollution in relation to their personal environments. Most people think of smoggy cities as hotbeds of pollution, but what they don't realize is that pollution is everywhere – even in the countryside. Consider where your clients live and how they spend their time. Are they near traffic, farming or industrial activity? Do they smoke? Using the knowledge from The International Dermal Institute, you can show your clients how easy and important it is to protect and preserve their skin health daily with Dermalogica.

Daily Superfoliant™ is a great place to start. This highly-active powder resurfacer delivers ultra-smooth skin while fighting the biochemical and environmental triggers known to accelerate skin ageing. Just as SPF helps ward off skin damage from repeated UV exposure, Daily Superfoliant™ helps ward off skin damage from air pollution, when included in your client's daily regimen.

Key Benefits:

• Adsorbs (binds to remove) pollutants from deep within pores.
• Provides antioxidant protection to the skin.
• Helps prevent adherence of pollutants to the skin.
• Reinforces the skin's protective barrier.

When creating Daily Superfoliant™, the skin health experts at The International Dermal Institute considered the many effects of pollution on skin health, as well as the best ways to optimize removal of particulate matter for brighter, more youthful skin with a softer, cleaner feel. The following ingredients were selected for their exceptional resurfacing and anti-pollution qualities as well as their performance in concert with one another; Activated Charcoal, Niacinamide, Papain, Lipase, Subtilisin, Keratolytic, Lactic Acid, Malic Acid, Kappaphycus Alvarezii (Red Algae), Caesalpinia Spinosa (Tara) Fruit Extract and Oryza Sativa (Rice Bran) Extract.

Dermalogica Daily Superfoliantl, 57g, RRP $109 will be available from March 3, 2017 from authorised Dermalogica skin centres and counters nationwide and online from dermalogica.co.nz
