One of the biggest (but not-so-secret) secrets of the beauty industry is a trick that will make your skin smoother than a babies bottom. In most cases the rule is that oil and water do not necessarily mix but when it comes to skincare, this is the best recipe for your routine. Using a facial oil in combination with a toner or mist is the best way to ensure delivery of moisture and nutrients into the deeper layers of the skin. When mixing the oil and water together, it mimics the oil/water balance of our skin, allowing the oil to penetrate rather than sit on top of the skin’s surface, which can leave a feeling of residue.

Cleansing with oil gives your skin more moisture, and leaves it extra hydrated compared to other traditional cleansers. PLUS, oil is a natural makeup remover!

This can be done with Dermalogica's Precleanse as it is formulated with Rice Bran and Vitamin E oils. A gentle blend that can be used around the eye area to remove waterproof mascara. A deep cleansing ideal for even the most oily skin conditions.

How to Use:
1. Dispense dime-size amount into dry hands.
2. Massage over dry face and eyes to dissolve surface oil, makeup, sunscreen or dirt. Concentrate on areas of congestion or stubborn debris.
3. Wet hands and continue massaging to create a light, milky emulsion.
4. Rinse with lukewarm water.
5. Follow with prescribed Dermalogica Cleanser for professional cleansing results.



For thousands of years, oils have been used in skincare rituals across the world. Olive oil, for example, was used in ancient Greece by the women to preserve their youthful, radiant glow. When adding a facial oil to your routine you'll find that you need less products, less make-up, and have much less worry about how your skin looks. Not only are facial oils these days as luxurious as it comes but they also deliver vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants into the skin and body. It does, however, take a few tricks to know how to really get the oil absorb fully instead of just sitting on top of the skin.

SWITCH TO OILS

Oils don't contain any unnecessary ingredients like moisturizers do - just pure, active ingredients that will restore skin to its best version.

Recommendations:




100% pure, cold pressed rosehip oil is naturally highly effective in reducing the appearance of scars, stretch marks and other skin concerns including dehydrated and aging skin.

Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ helps improve brightening, skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, elasticity and firmness.

STAY HYDRATED



Our skin is a thirsty organ, and when you're dehydrated your whole body will feel it. For internal hydration, carry a BPA-free water bottle to make hydration extra-convenient. And for external hydration, spritz on Dermalogica Age Smart Antioxidant HydraMist for instantly refreshed skin.

 USE NATURAL ACIDS



Natural alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) work to gently rid skin of dead cells to leave the complexion smoother, softer, and fresher. Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque contain AHAs to accelerate skin brightening with dual-action exfoliation.

MASSAGE
Give yourself a luxurious facial massage while applying oils. Massaging the oils into the skin not only helps them penetrate deeper but it brings blood and oxygen to the surface, which help to heal the skin from the inside out.

NIGHT

Our skin works really hard at night to repair damage and regenerate skin cells. Using a facial oil will give your skin the boost it needs to look radiant come sunrise.
