Dermalogica IonActive Treatment : Review

 

Dermalogica Ion Active Treatment

 

Hi everyone! About a month back, I visited the Dermalogica offices here in Mumbai to try out their IonActive Power Treatment. If you’re not familiar with the brand, Dermalogica is a US based brand that offers targeted and effective skin care, free from common irritants and breakout causing ingredients. The brand focusses on skin health, which is why a lot of their products are recommended by dermatologists and used by professional skin therapists.

The IonActive Power Treatment is a 45-minute service that is designed to address predominant skin conditions such as acne, dehydration, sensitivity and skin ageing. It is offered exclusively at approved Dermalogica Partnered Salons/Clinics by licensed professional skin therapists. If you have serious skin concerns that your neighbourhood salon doesn’t have the expertise to address, I would recommend this treatment.

Hi everyone! Today I’m reviewing two skincare products from the French brand Vichy – the Mineralizing Thermal Spring Water and the Aqualia Thermal Night Spa. I’ve been using the Night Spa on and off since the past few months while the Spring water is new to me. The Night Spa is a slightly different product – its a sleeping mask-treatment that helps moisturize the skin overnight.

Let’s take a closer look at these two products.

Winter Skin Care Routine Tips

A change in the season not only warrants a change in the wardrobe, but in the skin care routine as well. As soon as winter sets in, the skin starts feeling a little dry and when not attended to, becomes scaly and flaky. Indoor heating, low temperatures, and dry air affects the skin and makes it vulnerable to dehydration and peeling. This is why it is important to switch to a dedicated winter skin care routine. Here are some winter skin care tips to survive the cold winter months and maintain healthy, happy skin –

Change the cleanser – In summer, foaming cleansers are great, but in winters when the skin is dry switch to a creamy cleanser. In case, your skin is on the dry side, opt for creams with fatty acids and barrier-repairing ceramides that are good at preventing water loss. Remember, to preserve and maintain a youthful glow and soft skin, hydration is the key.

Try a facial oil – One of the essential parts of winter skin care routine is to invest in good quality facial oil. During the winters, mix a couple of drops of facial oil in your day cream to lock the moisture in the skin.

Exfoliate – To fight dullness and uneven pigmentation, it is very important to invest in a good exfoliator. Exfoliating helps shed dead cells and boosts the natural repair process, promoting the production of collagen. Remember to exfoliate gently, using natural and gentle exfoliators to avoid excessive dryness.

Moisturize – Moisturizing is an important part of any winter skin care routine. After your bath, pat the skin dry and apply a body lotion to protect the skin from moisture loss. Moisturizer help the skin retain moisture throughout the day. Use a lip balm to prevent drying and cracking of the lips.
