“With the onset of cooler weather we all reach for an extra layer of clothing but how often do we consider the
effect of the change in weather on our skin? Dry, cold winter air wreaks havoc with hydration levels in our skin
and can cause skin dryness, tightness and fines lines to develop. Just as you might update your wardrobe
for winter, look at getting some professional advice on how to winterise your skin care regime. Something
as simple as incorporating a masque into your weekly routine can have a dramatic effect on your winter skin
Winter is also the perfect time to have a series of skin treatments, such as Dermalogica’s BioSurfaceTM Peel, to help combat summer damage such as hyperpigmentation, sun spots and age spots.”

sleep: the simple Rx for healthier skin
Did you know that the body naturally regenerates itself
at night? That’s right! As we power down for the day,
our bodies switch from “defence mode” to “regeneration
mode” in what’s called a circadian rhythm.
The body uses sleep to renew and recharge itself, skin renewal rates double at this time, while collagen levels rise and the body works to suppress UV-induced damage.
To optimise this natural skin cycle of night repair, look for products that are specially formulated to work as you sleep.
*Rx = medical prescription
For maximum nighttime skin repair, targeted treatment products are designed to work when the body is in peek regeneration mode, such as Overnight Repair Serum, Pure Night, Overnight Clearing Gel or Ultracalming Serum Concentrate depending on your skin concerns.
