Beauty product of the week: Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster
This is the answer to dehydrated skin.
Why we love this product
In case you didn't know, you can go to any Dermalogica store or counter and they will give you a free facial mapping. Yes, it's probably just a ploy to encourage you to buy something, but they're still very useful. Last time I had one done, I was told that the water levels in my skin were very low. It's my own fault. In winter, it's so much more comforting to drink a warm caffeinated drink than a cold glass of hydrating water.
Dehydrated skin is not a good thing. It looks dull, it feels rough and it makes any lines and wrinkles look even more prominent. So I asked Dermalogica for a solution and they gave me this Skin Hydrating Booster. After about two years of use, I'm convinced that this is the one product in my routine that I couldn't live without.
In addition to nutrient-rich algae and antioxidants, the primary ingredient in this booster is hyaluronic acid, which attracts and pulls water from the air deep into your skin. In fact, it can attract 1,000 times its weight in water, so it really keeps your skin super hydrated.
The real results can be seen when you stop using it. Initially, I wasn't sure how well it worked so I stopped using it for a week. The line on my forehead looked deeper, my skin looked dull and ashy and it almost felt like my skin lost volume. Never again!
Dermalogica's Skin Hydrating Booster keeps my skin looking bright, plump and dewy. I just mix a small amount into my moisturiser for epic results.
Dermalogica sells this product for $87. Before you decide that this is too pricey, know that I've been using it for two years and I'm only half way through my second bottle. A little goes a long way and this product is genuinely worth it. I would buy this over any highlighter or illuminator because it makes your skin glow naturally.
Where you can buy it
Dermalogica products are sold at a bunch of different websites. I like to buy mine at Facial Co., or ry.com.au, depending on which sells the product for the cheapest at the time. All three websites have regular sales, so you can usually get it for around $70.
