Who is This Dermalogica Cleanser For?
Many people make the mistake of thinking their skin is oily when it is not. Getting your skin diagnosed by a professional skin care therapist is the best way to find out about your particular skin care type. However one way to tell is if you wake up in the morning and your skin is oily, and it’s oily throughout the day you have oily skin, also if you feel your skin and it has a oily surface and coarse skin texture, with possible blackheads and open pores this is another tell-tale sign.
If you find you only experience oil at the end of the day, or only say only on your nose, special cleansing gel would be a more suitable cleanser for you.
The Right Way to Use Dermal Clay Cleanser
With any dermalogica cleanser to get cleaner skin results, you must always start your cleansing routine with precleanse, an oil that breaks down oil in the skin and allows your water-soluble cleanser to work more effectively, read me precleanse post for more information.
Don’t use dermal clay cleanser around your eyes, It is for your face only, you will need to use a separate eye makeup remover. If you have particularly oily skin, you can use this cleanser twice a week as a mini masque to absorb excess oil, leave on for five minutes and rinse well, it works really well, especially if you want your skin to look matte if you are going out somewhere special.
I find when using dermal clay cleanser it works best if you leave it on your skin for a few minutes and then using light strokes concentrate on areas of congestion and then remove with warm water. To turn dermal clay cleanser into what’s called a “power-cleanse” you can even add a small amount of skin prep scrub for light exfoliation, but you would only do this a few times a week, being careful not to over exfoliate your skin.
I hope you like what I have to say about dermal clay cleanser, having used this product on and off during the years, it really does make your skin feel clean and fresh, if you have tried it, let me know your thoughts about it and how it’s made your skin look and feel.
