  • Make your skin GLO this Spring

    As the weather changes, so does the needs of our skin. You might find that your moisturiser is to heavy, you need to add an SPF, or change up your exfoliant. So, I spoke to everyone in team GLO, and asked them what their favourite spring Dermalogica product is and why it makes their skin GLO...

    Dermalogica Super Sensitive Shield SPF 30

  • Spring is in the air

    shutterstock_109013348

    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.

    shutterstock_73560688

    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.

    shutterstock_11259499

    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.

    shutterstock_66421009

    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.

    To celebrate all Dad's this Father's Day, we thought that we would share with everyone some great shaving tips and hints. Dermalogica has a great range of products for every man to avoid rashes, redness and bumps when they put razor to skin. You can share this with the Dad in your life and perhaps even get some great ideas for father's day gift's.


    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!

    shutterstock_70371454

    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.


     

    shutterstock_144487549

    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

    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

    Yoga

    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

    Skincare

    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. For a personalised skincare routine talk to our trained Dermalogica Skin Therapists today. shutterstock_176602895

    Eating

    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

    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.

    shutterstock_142814494 (1)

     

    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.

    shutterstock_142130227

     

    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

    shutterstock_104148617

     

    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.

    shutterstock_200242505

     

    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.

    shutterstock_102009724

     

    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.

    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!

    BioSurface Peel_generic tile

    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.

    BioSurface Peel Service Brochure_crop marks

    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.

  • 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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
