  • Introducing the NEW BioSurface Peel from Dermalogica

    BioSurface Peel_coming soon

    It is very exciting to announce that from August the 4th GLO Skin Body Treatment Centre's will be offering the NEW BioSurface Peel from Dermalogica.


    What is Biosurface Peel?

    BioSurface™ Peel is a powerful skin resurfacing system from the skin health experts at Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute. It helps reduce breakouts, pigmentation and signs of premature aging to reveal smoother, brighter and softer skin.

    Your skin therapist will tailor a series of treatments and a home care regime to help you achieve a smoother, renewed and brighter complexion. A series of 6 treatments is recommended followed by regular maintenance is recommended.

    Why do I need it?

    Chemical peels are one of the most popular professional skin care services today because they can improve the quality, texture and tone of the skin. But they can also produce severe side effects such as inflammation, discoloration and scarring for up to several months. With BioSurface Peel, you can get the same powerful results without the associated risks or downtime. In fact, your skin will look and feel healthier than ever!

    What can I expect?

    Most clients experience noticeable results within three treatments, from fewer wrinkles and fine lines to smoother texture and reduced breakouts. Results will vary depending on your skin condition and how frequently you receive BioSurface Peel treatments.

    Come in, we're OPEN! (3)

    How does BioSurface Peel work?

    BioSurface Peel is designed to work with the skin’s chemistry, not against it. When performed by a certified skin care professional, it safely removes dull outer layers of skin and helps the skin underneath regenerate for better health and radiance.

    Where can I get the BioSurface Peel Treatment?

    This treatment will be available at our Skin Treatment Centre's in Crows Nest and Cherrybrook from the 4th of August, 2014. Book Now at www.bookglo.com or call us on 1300 828 131 to find out more information

    What do I need to do post-treatment?

    Your skin condition, skin concerns and dedication to post-treatment care will impact the frequency and results of BioSurface Peel treatments. Ideally, a series of treatments are performed over a three- to 12-week period, followed by maintenance treatments twice a year.

    Immediately after your BioSurface Peel treatment, your skin may appear red and flushed. As your skin goes through the renewal process, it is normal to experience dryness, redness and tightness, as well as some peeling or flaking within a week. You may also notice a temporarily more pronounced appearance of pigmentation as it rises to the skin’s surface. These side effects will subside quickly with proper post-treatment care, starting with the BioSurface Peel After Care Kit.

    Another hard working mum of three, what is your must have Dermalogica product for winter?

    "During the winter months, I have to be more conscious that my skin remains well hydrated and sensitivity remains calm. With its heavy, creamy consistency, Super Rich Repair gives my skin that nourishment it needs- just like a big drink of water! Plus keeps my Rosacea free from flare ups"

    "In winter to stay warm, I find myself having more showers and baths yet this can really cause my skin to become dry and flaky (particularly on the legs). The Dermalogica UltraRich Body Cream is non greasy and absorbs easily and when i use this morning and night, my is kept feeling supple and well moisturised and I avoid having those dry looking legs which often comes with the cold."

  • Winter Skincare to make your skin GLO

    Everyone feels changes in their skin during winter. Whether it is dryer, flakky or tight, we all need to ensure that during the colder months we are looking after our skin from head to toe. And that includes adjusting our routine to meet the changing needs of our skin.

    shutterstock_181142915

    These are our top 10 winter skincare tips and the Dermalogica products to match to make your skin GLO!

    1. Switch out your foaming cleanser for a soothing gel cream

    Woman-washing-her-faceDermalogica-Ultra-Calming-Cleanser

    Our skin's pH is acidic and non-lathering cleansers have a neutral pH, so they don't disturb the pH balance of the skin and are much less drying. You can try a soothing gel cream during winter instead of foaming and non-lathering cleansers to replenish lipids and soothe sensitivity. Try Dermalogica’s UltraCalming CleanserIt is an extremely gentle cleansing gel/cream that can either be rinsed off or gently removed with tissue or The Sponge Cloth.

    2. Remember to still exfoliate

    Exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells that are blocking the moisturising ingredients from getting through. Some people think that you should lay off the exfoliation in winter, but it is just as important, you just need to ensure you are being gentle on the skin and not using anything to aggressive. Try Dermalogica's Daily ResurfacerThis product can be used daily as a leave-on exfoliating treatment that brightens, hydrates, evens skin tone, and delivers dramatic smoothing results.

    shutterstock_102811364daily microfoliantdaily resurfacer

    There is also the option of Daily Microfoliant, our #1 exfoliant. This gentle, rice-based exfoliating powder activates upon contact with water, releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes that micro-exfoliate dead cells, instantly leaving skin smoother and brighter. 

    3. Add moisture to your skin with a toner

    You can layer on hydration and reduce tightness by spritzing after cleansing and throughout the day over makeup. The benefitof using a toner in the wintertime is that it returns your skin;s pH back to normal after cleansing. Choose from MultiActive TonerAntioxidant HydraMist or UltraCalming Mist.

    4. Apply a hydrating booster

    If you are suffering from that winter cold or flu and your poor nose is extra dry and sore, you may need to use a super-saturated hydrating fluid to intensely moisturise the nose area and other extra dry areas of your skin. Try Dermalogica's skin hydrating booster.

    shutterstock_19511227skin hydrating booster 30ml

    Simply squeeze 6-10 drops onto fingertips and apply to areas or it can be mixed with a Dermalogica moisturiser then applied to face and throat.

    5. Secure the skins moisture with a lotion

    You should be moisturising day and night anyway, but during the winter months you can opt for a heavier weight moisturiser for more nourishment and protection. Apply your moisturiser over damp skin to ensure maximum absorption. Remember when applying to your face, also extend to the ears, and throat, using light upward strokes. Try Super Rich repair or Intensive Moisture Balance for more intense winter moisturising.

    6. Treat yourself to a mask once or twice a week

    A masque will provide your skin with a dramatic boost and they can be used to enhance your daily skincare routine once or twice a week. The Multivitamin power recovery masque is a powerful masque of concentrated antioxidant vitamins to help skin recover from damage while enhancing barrier properties and promoting healthy tissue regeneration. Kelley's from GLO Skin Body Crows Nest says "It leaves your skin feeling revitalised, it is my must have this winter!"

     

    7. Use a good quality lip balm... that actually works!

    So many lip balms are just simply not balmy enough. Especially during winter, you need a good quality lip balm that shields the lips from environmental influences. Dermalogica's Climate control lip treatment has a protective formula that glides on easily over lips to help prevent further environmental assault. It also happens to be Saori's favourite winter product, she says "It is like a little lip therapist working on my lips all the time... and leaves my lips ready for a kiss!"

    8. Look after your hands

    Hands are at the forefront of the winter elements, they are exposed and in need of extra love during the winter months. If you're like me and want to have moisturised hands without the greasy feel, then try Multi-Vitamin Hand & Nail cream. This super-nourishing, fast-absorbing cream provides relief for the driest of hands without being greasy.

    shutterstock_153144926

    9. Tackle dry skin straight after your shower

    In winter to stay warm, we tend to have more showers and baths that are hotter than normal, and this can really cause our skin to become dry and flakey (particularly on the legs). The UltraRich Body Cream by Dermalogica is non greasy and absorbs easily and when used both morning and night. Moisturising is always best when applied to damp skin. So, keep your mosituriser in the bathroom so that as soon as you're out of the shower you can apply it.

    10. Treat yourself to a skin treatment

    Its cold outside, the wind is blowing and you just want to relax, feel warm and dream about your next island holiday! Plus it's a great opportunity to ensure your winter skincare routine is on track. Book in for a skin treatment, we recommend the signature Dermalogica Face Treatment that includes face mapping and is targeted to exactly what your skin needs on the day.

  • Wear Makeup or Suncreen? Welcome to PreCleanse wipes

    NEW! PreCleanse Wipes

    Proper cleansing of the skin is essential to skin health, yet this elementary step is often overlooked. PreCleanse, one of Dermalogica’s most popular breakthrough products originally introduced in liquid form is now available in packs of convenient, biodegradable wipes, which makes cleansing skin while traveling even easier.

    Every Dermalogica regimen is based upon the foundation of the “double-cleanse”, beginning with PreCleanse which helps to dissolve layers of excess sebum oil, sunscreen, waterproof make-up, environmental pollutants and residual products that build-up on the skin throughout the day. This first step preps the skin for the second step to the “double-cleanse” method, the prescribed Dermalogica Cleanser, to penetrate even further in the skin for professional cleansing results.

    The importance of proper skin cleansing can be found through the research conducted by The International Dermal Institute, which reveals that women typically spend approximately only three seconds when washing their faces – even at the end of the day. Particularly in light of the development of long-wearing sunscreens and “24-hour” cosmetics, this means that most women leave product residue on their skin. This residue may cause acneic outbreaks, the formation of milia (tiny inclusions, which feel like grains of sand beneath the epidermis), and other long-term skin issues.

    PreCleanse Wipes contain Aloe and Apricot Kernel Oil which attract sebum and instantly dissolve even the most stubborn mascara, waterproof lip stains and sunscreens. The formula, which also contains Apple Amino Acids, gently loosens surface debris, such as industrial pollutants. By melting away these deposits on the skin, cleansers and other products may then work more effectively. The product also smoothes, calms, and nourishes skin.

    PreCleanse wipes are available now at our everyday low prices here.
