  • Sun and the Dermalogica difference #spfwithbenefits


    As UV levels begin to increase day to day, it is so important that we protect our skin . These rays can burn our skin and potentially give us skin cancer as well as age our skin faster than anything else! Today's blog is about educating you on solar UV exposure, sun protection and how Dermalogica can really make a difference with your skin. 



    How does solar UV exposure change throughout the year?

    Solar UV exposure changes all through the year depending on the seasons. Exposure levels are the highest in the summer months, from December to February. And they are the lowest during the winter months from May through to July. Interestingly, during Spring and Autumn solar UV exposure level can change rapidly day to day. This is why it is so important that we protect our skin using sunscreen during the day, even during Spring. 

    UV Index

    Where did Sunscreen come from?

    Sunscreen has been around for over 50 years. When they were originally created the purpose was to prevent sunburn. And what causes sunburn? UVB. The cosmetic industry created UVB absorbers and so people where able to apply this product and not get burnt. But, it was the UVA rays that were longer, and penetrate deeper, so people were still getting skin cancer and skin ageing because they were missing half the spectrum.

    Sunscreens are not antioxidants, that is not how they work. They absorb UV energy and change it to heat energy before it causes skin problems, using chemical blockers like Oxybenzone and Avobenzone. A lot of people don't apply sunscreen correctly and they don't apply enough to the skin.

    Solar Defense Booster SPF50 (2)

    What is the difference between a store bought SPF and a professional SPF?

    With the Dermalogica UV Smart Booster Technology, it can actively diffuse free radicals when protection against them is needed most. The powerful vitamin complex, when formulated with sunscreens, also provides enhanced protection against UV-induced damage without the need for higher concentrations of potentially-irritating sunscreen ingredients found in products with high sun protection factors (SPF).

    The Dermalogica UV Smart Booster Technology and sophisticated sunscreen formulations with skin health benefits make SPF a convenient addition to every morning routine.


    Our Skin is an excellent record keeper

    Every moment of exposure to daylight adds up like money ion the bank. Statistics show that one in six individuals will develop skin cancer, and 90% of these cancers are the direct results of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. Even if exposure if limited to brief outdoor lunches or a 20 minute walk, cumulative exposure is enough to cause the signs of skin aging and increase the risk of skin cancer.


    Which SPF is right for you?

    This great infographic breaks down all our Dermalogica SPF products that are specifically designed for different types of skin.




    When it comes to SPF, Dermalogica believes that products should optimise sun protection while enhancing skin health. These Dermalogica products are not just sunscreens, think of them as SPF friends with benefits. #spfwithbenefits

  • Personalised Skincare advice from the Dermalogica Experts

    Have you ever wondered what personalised skincare advice is all about?


    Well, I am here to show you exactly what happens when you come a talk to us about your skin. The best way to discuss this is face to face in one of our treatment centre Crows Nest or Cherrybrook, but we understand that not everyone can do this so we offer an online skin consultation. This is the most common method of communicating with us other than face to face. You can find this form under the my ADVICE tab on our website There are other ways to talk to us about your skincare needs that I explain below.


    Online Skin Consultation

    Firstly we ask you to enter your email, name, age and gender. The reason is, as we age, different things happen to our skin and also whether we are male or female can influence our skin and hence skincare needs. We want to know you name and email so we can personalise the experience and contact you directly via email with questions to clarify the information you give us. Sometimes we may need to ask extra questions to ensure that we create with the best skincare solution for your skin.

    Skin Health Questions

    We ask you 7 specific questions about your skin, they are as follows:

    1) What concerns you most about your skin?


    2) What are you currently using to take care of your skin?


    3) Do you experience irritation, burning or sensitivity?


    4) Do you experience redness or sensitivity daily?

    5) When do you experience oil shine?

    6) If you experience breakouts, tell us where on your skin this occurs?

    7) How often are you exfoliating your skin?


    We ask that you provide as much information as you can and be honest, we are not here to judge but only to help understand your skin so you can achieve the best skin possible. Once we have your answers, we may need to clarify a few things and we may even ask for a photo of your skin. Once we have all the information we need we then customise a Dermalogica skincare solution for you. This may be recomedning some complimentry products to your existing routine or a completely new Dermalogica skincare routine.

    It's that simple... you can order these products from our online store at up to 35% off RRP for everything Dermalogica. We have Free Shipping on orders over $49 and same day dispatch on all orders processed before 12.30 pm. And if you are not happy we have hassle free returns with our satisfaction guaranteed promise!


    So, let me show you an example from a client who really needed some personalised advice and the types of things she shared with us.


    The client had acne on her chin, jawline and cheeks. She used to smoke and drink but took a huge turn in her life and started living 'ultra healthy' after having children. She grew her own vegetables and cooks a lot of home meals. She used some Dermalogica products in her routine already. She experienced irritation and burning occasionally and redness and sensitivity regularly. She exfoliated daily. Her biggest concern was why after all the changes in her lifestyle, is she still experiencing breakouts? She really wanted to tackle this problem.

    After this initial email, we asked a few more questions about her stress levels, we asked for a photo of her skin and what make up she wears for daily use.


    Our recommendations for her were:


    Here is what our happy client said after the experience...

    "Thank-you, Thank-you, Thank-you, for the skin consultation and product recommendations. For the first time since I was 21, I have no breakouts! Not one bump anywhere on my face. There are still some red marks where the pimples were but non are raised, blind blemishes. This is amazing. Thank you for the advice I'm very happy. The new Dermalogica products are definitely making a difference"  From Ali

    Do you have these skin concerns? Or perhaps your skin concerns are different. Whatever your concern is we are here to help. We can work with you to compliment your existing skincare routine and products with some key products from the Dermalogica range or you may want to set up a brand new skincare routine using everything Dermalogica. Whatever you want, we can work with you to help you achieve the best skin possible.

  • Spring is in the air


    Well, spring is finally here and we can start to creep out from our caves again. We will naturally start to socialise more and spend more time outdoors, and of course the weather will start to warm up. All of these changes take effect on our skin. Some people start to feel more oil production, some start to feel dry parts of their skin that have been hiding during winter, and others start to see little blemishes. Whatever your  We all experience changes with our skin as the weather changes. So here are # really simple yet effective spring time Dermalogica steps to keep your skin healthy and glowing into the warmer months.


    Step 1: Cleanse away morning and night

    Thorough cleansing is the most critical step in a successful home care routine. It delivers immediate skin care benefits and is an important part of the whole-body health. Dermalogica cleansers are soap free cleansers that lift impurities, address skin issues and prepare skin for treatment. Dermalogica's Special Cleansing Gel is the #1 cleanser as it is suitable for all skin conditions. Simply lather a pea-sized amount of gel into moistened hands and apply to dampened face and throat. There are other great Dermalogica cleansers that can target dry, aged or oily skin, and you can always talk to our expert Dermalogica Skin Therapists today to find the right product for you.


    Step 2: Exfoliate to banish dead skin

    Exfoliation is important to the health of all skin conditions. Dermalogica recommends 1 day of intense exfoliation using a product like Gentle Cream Exfoliant and then 7 days of gentle exfoliation such as Daily Microfoliant to more effectively stimulate cell renewal rates. For Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant, simply dispense about half a teaspoon into wet hands and create a creamy paste by rubbing hands together. Apply to face in circular motions, massage gently for one minute and then rinse thoroughly. The weekly exfoliant has more powerful ingredients to ensure a more intense exfoliation occurs. You can apply the Dermalogica Gentle Cream exfoliant over face and throat and wait 10 mins to activate, then rinse well. Effective exfoliation will allow your moisturisers to work more effectively on the skin.


    Step 3: Moisturise = Hydrate + Lubricate + Protect

    Moisturisers are vital to every skin care routine regardless of skin condition. They do more than just moisten deydrated skin, emollients help lubricate skin while making it soft, pilable and smooth. They also help to protect the skin against the environment, especially during spring when we are heading outdoors more and the UVA rays start to strengthen. Sun damage is in fact the #1 reason for prematurely aged skin. So our spring moisturiser routine should start to incorporate SPF into your morning routine such as Solar Defense Booster with spf50. Then this should be mixed in with your prescribed Dermalogica Moisturiser such as Active Moist for oily skin, Skin Smoothing Cream for dry or prematurely aging skin and Intensive Moisture Balance for an ultra rich moisturiser.


    For other types of Dermaloigca moisturisers targeted at sensitive skin, aging skin, hyper-pigmentation, we can also provide other options. So, talk to us today about the best moisturisers for your skin.

    Stay tuned for more spring time blogs. And as always please talk to us about your skin questions and concerns, we are here to help you achieve the  best skin possible. or 1300 828 131

    There are 2 main problems men experience when shaving, firstly ingrown hairs and secondly, razor burn. So, lets answer some burning questions about these manly problems!

    What are ingrown hairs?

    Ingrown hairs are hairs that get forced back into the follicle. This triggers redness, itchiness and a potential spot similar to an breakout. You can stop these before they start by exfoliating before shaving. In fact, the same applies for women who shave their legs or bikini line... exfoliate before you shave to prevent those pesky ingrown hairs from creeping up!


    What is razor burn?

    Razor burn is burning, itching, and redness caused by shaving. You (or the man in your life) can say bye-bye to the burn by: - Shaving with a sharp, clean blade - Shaving with the grain, in the direction of the hair shaft - Use an adequate amount of Dermalogica gentle shave cream or Dermalogica gel - And NEVER dry shave Shave Tips Infograph-update Now you know all their is to know about shaving, here's how you can help the Dad in your life with Dermalogica.

  • Stress Proof your Life and your Skin

    This month at GLO we are focusing on stress and the skin. The last post - Connecting Stress to the Skin with Dermalogica was about understanding how and why stress is a trigger that causes skin conditions such as an increase in acne breakouts, sensitivity, redness, wrinkles, dark circles and in extreme situations can lead to a flare up of dermatitis and hyperpigmentation. Today's post is about stress proofing your life and your skin, we will look at exercise, eating habits and other strategies to manage your stress levels day to day.



    FIrst and foremost, we must all learn to manage stress levels in our lives. There are some fantastic workshops, books and exercise programs such as Yoga that help combat the signs of stress. Using skincare products that have been specifically formulated to address external factors that sensitize the skin. Eat well, the fuel you feed the body has such a direct correlation to how you feel, and have plenty of quality rest, sleep and exercise.


    Exercise in almost any form can act as a stress reliever. Being active can boost your feel-good endorphin's and distract you from daily worries. If you're not an athlete, you can still make a little exercise go a long way towards stress management. As you begin to shed your daily tensions through movement and physical activity, you may find that this focus on a single task, and the resulting energy and optimism, can help you remain calm and clear in everything that you do. Dermalogica believe that skin health is about looking after yourself from head to toe, that is why exercise is so important to maintain skin health. shutterstock_182221091


    Whether you are looking to develop strength, increase flexibility, learn to relax or simply want to improve your health and fitness, yoga will help you achieve your goal. Yoga is purifying, cleansing, strengthening, relaxing and calming. If you haven't tried Yoga already, consider finding a local class or they may have some sessions at your local gym. The mental and physical tension that we carry can affect our skin in many ways. It can be relieved with the practice of yoga postures and deep relaxation. Yoga is about transformation of the mind and body, as Dermalogica is about transformation of the skin. yoga


    Truly understanding your skin is the first step towards a lifetime of skin health. Dermalogica believe in education first, understanding the zones in your skin and customising products specifically your skins needs. By taking care of your skin, which involves a personalised skincare routine that a Dermalogica trained therapist can provide you with and using your Dermalogica products throughout the day and night, your feelings towards and confidence in your skin health can improve and in turn have positive effects on the stress levels in your life.

    Stress can cause unhealthy eating habits and sometimes your body can crave foods that are high in fats and sugars. Over time, this will inflict greater stress on the body and skin. A balanced nutritional eating plan will boost our resistance against the effects that stress brings upon our body and over time repair any damage that has been done prior. Nutrients that you need to include are minerals, vitamins, proteins, good fatty acids and energy that comes from carbohydrates, protein and fats. It also means avoiding or minimising the intake of certain foods such as sweets, alcohol and caffeine. Eating the right foods will show in your skin and combined with your Dermalogica Skincare routine, you're on your way to a healthy mind, body and skin. shutterstock_192032213

    Rest & Sleep

    shutterstock_130173608 Sleep is a valuable and restorative resource that’s vital to wellbeing and stress management, but can sometimes be hard to come by for the busy and stressed. For most adults, 7 to 8 hours a night appears to be the best amount of sleep, although some people may need as few as 5 hours or as many as 10 hours of sleep each day. Rest is another way to help manage stress, whether that is having a warm bath, taking some time out, having a cup of tea and getting some fresh air. Either way, rest and sleep is very important in order to stress proof your life.  shutterstock_169280333


    Touch is one of the main attributes to aiding the relaxation process, in the past ten years it has become increasingly more apparent that touch and touch deprivation are critical considerations for the health and happiness of human beings. Touch helps to decrease stress and anxiety, and the physiological and behavioural changes that accompany this decline in stress and anxiety result in more relaxed and attentive individuals. At GLO Skin Body we encourage all clients to experience a Dermalogica Skin Treatment every 6 weeks, not only will your skin thank-you but your stress levels will decrease.

  • Connecting Stress to the Skin with Dermalogica

    Most of us at some point in our lives have experienced stress in one way or another. Stress is a feeling you have when you face a situation you think you cannot manage. Sometimes people feel anxious, irritable, forgetful, sleepless and unable to cope. This can be related to work, personal or social environments and feeling this way can trigger or heighten skin problems. 

    shutterstock_191468648 This month at GLO, we want to talk about stress and the skin and unearth some of the reasons why your skin reacts or changes to stress. And also, talk about ways to stress proof your life and ensure you maintain healthy skin.



    How is stress connected to the skin?

    Stress is a trigger that causes skin conditions such an as increase in acne breakouts, sensitivity, redness, wrinkles, dark circles and in extreme situations can lead to a flare up of dermatitis and hyper-pigmentation.

    What can stress do to the skin?

    Stress can lead to breakouts on the neck and sides of the face, thickening of eyebrow hair and fine facial stress lines may appear. Long term stress is also responsible for premature ageing and can lead to or flare up more serious chronic conditions like psoriasis, eczema and hyper-pigmentation.



    So, what is the good news?

    Dermalogica can help you to effectively treat the signs of stress in your skin. From acne, to redness, dark circles, wrinkles and more. Here at GLO, the Dermalogica experts, we can help you understand why and how stress specifically affects your skin and identify the right Dermalogica products to address these concerns. Also, we want to identify other ways that you can stress proof your life and your skin!


    Specific Skin Concerns



    How does stress cause acne?

    When your body is stressed, the production of stress hormones, adrenaline and other steroids is increased. Acne forms when oily secretions from glands beneath the skin congest the pores. The increase in certain hormones signals oil glands in the body to produce more oil, more oil leads to more congestion which in turn leads to an increase in acne lesions and breakouts.


    To effectively treat stress-induced acne, the aim is to impact the hormoe called 5-alpha reductase. Moderating its activity will in turn slow down the sebum production. This ingredient can be found in our Dermalogica Medicated Clearing products formulated for acne breakouts. A key step in controlling breakouts is to keep the skin clean. Cleanse twice in the morning and twice in the evening. First with Dermalogica PreCleanse, as cleansing oils are terrific at deeply cleansing the skin and secondly with either a Dermalogica facial gel or, ideally if you are oily, a Dermalogica Clay based Cleanser. A great daily treatment is an active spot recovery treatment that also contains a mineral/natural concealer make-up so it hides the blemish but is not comedogenic, like most concealers on the market are.


    How does stress cause redness?

    Neurotransmitters are chemicals that pass messages between nerve endings. When the body is under stress these chemicals naturally increase in the body as the nervous system is directly affected. When skin is over stimulated through prolonged stress, inflammation will increase resulting in sensitivity and redness.



    To treat this, try to follow the 'less is more' rule, less time spent on your skin, less products on your skin, less friction. This also means no rubbing, no scrubs, less heat, avoid sun exposure and saunas. Choose products formulated with anti-inflammatory ingredients and designed for a sensitised skin condition. You can find gentle, tissue-off cleansers, soothing sprays, calming and redness reducing boosters, masques, and very gentle moisturisers. Avoid products with fragrance and S.D alcohol in them. All of these can be found in the Dermalogica UltraCalming range.


    Can stress lead to wrinkles?

    Long term stress can easily be seen on some people's faces, the emotional trauma resulting in wrinkles. treating wrinkles is a complex business. No longer is it merely applying a night cream with added collagen. In recent years, scientists have come to understand the actual biochemical triggers that instigate premature ageing from condition such as stress.



    To target the signs of stressed out, prematurely ageing skin, a simple AM and PM routine with products that contain the latest complexes to protect the skin and ward off premature ageing is recommended.This includes Dermalogica Skin Resurfacing cleanser to cleanse the skin, followed by applying Dermalogica MultiVitamin Thermafoliant and then apply Antioxidant HydraMist and Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF30. For more information about any of the products discussed in this blog, talk to our skin therapists today.
