Dermalogica Moisturisers are vital to every skin care regimen, regardless of skin condition. Favourites such as Skin Smoothing Cream and Active Moist do more than just moisten dehydrated skin. Emollients (usually lipid substances) help lubricate skin while making it soft, pliable and smooth. Dermalogica Moisturisers also help to protect the skin’s natural defenses against the environment while controlling moisture loss from the skin. This becomes more important as we age, when the Stratum Corneum’s Natural Moisturising Factor (NMF) becomes less effective at regulating the skin’s water balance. Dermalogica has a moisturizer for every skin condition; from chronically dry and prematurely-aging to skin with excess oil production and breakouts.
