Cold weather can take a toll on the skin, especially on the face. That’s why before and during the colder seasons I take extra precaution to make sure my skin is well-hydrated, protected and taken care of. But sometimes the cooler weather plus the heating can be a little too harsh, dries up the moisture on my skin and causes irritation.
Itching, burning, stinging and redness are the obvious signs of sensitive skin. The triggers behind these sensations are less clear: genetics, hormones, stress, chemical assaults, foods and even aggressive skin treatments can intensify skin’s highly reactive state. The common thread behind irritation, flushing and stringing is inflammation. When paired with the loss of skin’s protective barrier, skin health is compromised and becomes highly reactive.
Treat the multiple triggers behind inflammation for lasting relief from sensitivity flare-ups with Dermalogica UltraCalming. Dermalogica’s latest products contains their exclusive UltraCalming Complex clinically proven to control neurogenic and immunogenic inflammatory pathways that lead to skin sensitivity.
Dermalogica UltraCalming Barrier Defense Booster
Dermalogica Barrier Defense Booster soothes, nourishes and moisturizes sensitive skin to restore balance. The Triple Defense Complex nourishes the skin, relieves dryness and reinforces barrier integrity against future irritation. While Squalane locks in moisture while soothing Oat Oil helps combat sensitivity and support healthy-looking skin.
I dispense a couple of drops into my palm, rub hands together and pat gently onto the face and neck. The oil sits on the skin for a short little while but it doesn’t make your face feel greasy or oily. In fact, once the oil sits on the skin, you can immediately feel the softness of your skin. I then follow up with Dermalogica’s UltraCalming Calm Water Gel to restore moisture and prevent dehydration.
The Barrier Defense Booster can also be mixed with a moisturizer before applying to the face.
Dermalogica UltraCalming Calm Water Gel
Dermalogica UltraCalming Calm Water Gel is a weightless water-gel moisturizer that provides immediate hydration to dry, sensitive skin. Its Dual Hyaluronic Acid technology works in different skin surface layers to increase and lock in moisture. Apple Fruit Extract and Glycerin hydrate and soften while defending skin against dryness. Cactus Pear Extract helps soothe sensitivity and imparts water-binding properties to help support healthy moisture balance.
To use, I simply squeeze a small amount into my palm, rub hands together and pat gently onto face and neck. The Calm Water Gel provides a gel formula, but once applied, the formula sets in immediately. My skin feels refreshed, calm and hydrated.
I have been using the UltraCalming products for a few weeks and I must say I have noticed a relief on my skin. The redness and irritation have gone down and my skin feels smooth and hydrated.
