There is something new in the air at Dermalogica and Prodermal this month. We’ve got your skin covered with a new product designed to absorb environmental toxins and guard your skin against the damaging effects of pollution.
Prodermal is excited to introduce… Daily Superfoliant!
Dermalogica is a leader in product research and development and their research shows that 92% of the world’s population is subject to unhealthy levels of air pollution. Air pollution can be divided into indoor pollution like pollen, dust mites, household materials and pets. Whilst outdoor pollutant contributors are vehicle emissions, industry, smoke, windblown dust, pollen and mould spores.
Sarah Shephard, Corporate Trainer for Dermalogica, launched the antidote to polluted skin this week in Sydney. She explained that pollution can affect the skin and cause “inflammaging”, a term used to describe inflammation associated with ageing. Inflammation can be associated with aggressive products but also exposure to UV and pollution.
The visible effects of “inflammaging” on the skin can be seen as sensitivity and irritation, dehydration, acne and breakouts, uneven skin tone, loss of elasticity, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. In a nutshell, inflammation can lead to a prematurely aged skin.
To combat the effects of pollutants on the skin, Dermalogica’s new Daily Superfoliant is a triple-action product that removes the harmful impurities from pollutants that build up on the skin throughout the day. It’s a powder formula that activates upon contact with water to release enzymes, skin resurfacing agents and anti-pollution ingredients which detoxify the skin and guard against the damaging effects of pollution.
This advanced formula contains active ingredients like Malic and Lactic Acid to resurface the skin and Activated Binchotan Charcoal to adsorb pollutants. Age protectant ingredients like Niacinamide, Red Algae and Tara Fruit Extract prevent adherence of pollutants to the skin and provide antioxidant protection.
If you are concerned about ageing and the damaging effects of pollution on your skin, then Daily Superfoliant is perfect for you. Daily Superfoliant can be used on a normal to mature, pre-mature ageing or congested skin. It is part of the Dermalogica AGE Smart range.
Shephard recommended a few different ways to incorporate Daily Superfoliant in a skin care regime. You can use it daily, a few times a week or incorporate it into your existing routine. She explained that for consumers who love the best seller Daily Microfoliant, that it’s possible to continue it using every day and then incorporate the new Daily Superfoliant a few times a week. “Daily Superfoliant is like Daily Microfoliant’s big sister”. They both have different actions on the skin. While Daily Microfoliant smooths and brightens, Daily Superfoliant resurfaces, detoxifies and adsorbs surface pollutants. The only similarity between the two is that they are powder based said Shephard.
The choice is yours…use daily, a few times a week or as prescribed by your Prodermal Skin Therapist. We recommend using after your double cleanse. Apply Daily Superfoliant by using a small amount – about a ½ teaspoon into very wet hands. Rub your hands together to create a creamy mousse like paste and apply to your face in circular motions (avoid eye area). Massage for about one minute and then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Follow with your selected Dermalogica toner or moisturiser.
