THE beauty buy we ALL WANT
Dermalogica’s just dropped its new Daily Superfoliant, which promises to protect skin from pollution. Whatever sorcery it contains, Look Designer Megan is hookedé
Like most superfans, I remember my first time using Dermalogica. I was 15 and suffering from full-blown, unapologetic acne. It was painful, it was humiliating and it made those tricky teenage years even harder to navigate. After trying almost everything (and I mean everything) I booked a facial. And then another. Before long, I had my very own beauty therapist (fancy) who swore by, and only used, Dermalogica products. From the moment it touched my skin, I was hooked. It reduced redness and helped with the acne scarring. And the smell! It’s like nothing you’ve smelt before; kind of like a mix between a spa, lavender and heaven. And that goes for all the brand’s products.
While I thought my heart belonged to the Daily Microfoliant, there now exists a brand new Daily Superfoliant and, well, I’m torn. You use it just like a normal exfoliator but let me tell you, it’s anything but ordinary. It contains charcoal and red algae, which work to detoxify the skin, helping prevent the ageing effects of pollution. As you may have heard, our levels of air pollution in the UK have increased dramatically of late, so the fact that Dermalogica is helping ensure that I don’t wake up with the face of a ghoul really does help me sleep at night. I know it’s expensive, but after suffering so much with my skin, I’m conscious of what I put on it. Dermalogica doesn’t use anything artificial and there’s no animal testing involved, which both help me justify the cost. Also, your skin is your body’s largest organ, so why wouldn’t you invest in it? Yes, yes, I am a Dermalogica superfan, but this is one new launch I just HAD to shout about!
