Gone are the days when just washing your face and moisturizing it well was enough. With pollutants, skin irritants in every other product, dust, and makeup stacked on top of each other, it’s high time you opt for some extra TLC.

Following the traditional double-cleansing therapy, this regime will truly scrape away all impurities and dead skin and leave your skin naturally radiant. We assure you; we’ve tried it and are extremely happy with the results.
STEP 0: PRE-CLEANSE
Dermalogica Precleanse: With apricot kernel oil, rice bran oil and borage seed oil
Our concept of cleansing is a little amiss. First you need to clear out all the external impurities before you truly clean your skin. A pre-cleansing oil will gently remove makeup, oil build-up, sweat and pollutants. It will also prep your skin for a deeper cleanse when you wash your face next.
STEP 1: CLEANSE
Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel: Soap-free cleanser with lavender, balm mint and soapbark
Now that all the external build-up is wiped away, your face is ready to be cleaned off dead skin, sebum, and bring your pH levels to their right levels. You need a soap-free formula that won’t damage your skin while cleansing it at the core.
STEP 2: EXFOLIATE
Dermalogica Mini Daily Microfoliant: Gentle exfoliant with rice bran, papaya extracts, licorice and grapefruit
Once your skin is clean and clear, you need an exfoliant that mildly unclogs your pores, helps cultivate healthy blood circulation in your face and opens up your follicles so that your moisturizing products can seep into your skin. It’s always good to have a gentle exfoliator for daily use.
STEP 3: Sun Protect
Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50: Hydrating, sun-protecting and anti-aging formula with algae extracts, rose flower oil and lemon oil
The final step for your routine is to hydrate and nourish your skin with a moisturizer that suits your skin well and protect you from any sun damage, even if you’re staying in. This one moisturizer will be able to keep your skin hydrated for long and help fight signs of aging as well.
