NEW Dermalogica smart response serum

Introducing the new Smart Response Serum from Dermalogica, a next-gen smart serum that delivers what your skin needs, when it needs it.

Skin care just got smarter

Consider for a moment how much technology has developed over recent years. How many of us could live without our smart phones? For many, our whole life is on that device! Do you have a smart speaker at home that you rely on daily to manage your shopping list or turn your lights on? As technology has allowed us to streamline our lives our skin care routines have become increasingly complex, but not necessarily smarter. We use responsive technology on a daily basis and it’s time we expect the same intelligence in our skin care products.

The science behind your skin’s signals

Your skin communicates with you, but you may not always know what it’s saying and when you realise your skin has changed, troublesome symptoms have already developed, prompting you to change up your regimen. But what if you could use a smart serum daily that micromanaged your skin, responding to changes before you were even aware? Now that’s smart skin care!

Our skin is constantly sending out signals at a micro-level as changes occur within our skin as it responds to our environment. From a surge in melanin production on exposure to UV rays or inflammatory mediators triggered as part of an immune response when skin is damaged or under attack. Over time, we see the visible symptoms of these changes as common conditions such as dehydration, redness and dark spots. With cutting-edge ‘smart actives’ in our skin care, next-gen formulas can respond to these micro-changes to deliver what your skin needs, when and where it needs it.

Micromanaging your skin

Our skin is constantly changing, not only seasonally but from one day to the next, in response to our climate, our diet, stress, and a number of other factors. The new Smart Response Serum contains SmartResponse technology that reacts to skin’s needs by detecting micro changes in the skin. By activating key ingredients on different areas of the face in response to skin’s micro-changes, Smart Response Serum is able to work when, where, and how skin needs it. The ultimate personalised skin care product! Perfect if you need to address multiple skin conditions at once.

SmartResponse technology

Smart Response Serum contains ingredients that are ‘switched on’ when they detect certain changes in the skin and work to reduce four common symptoms - redness, dehydration, dark spots and wrinkles.

  • Gallic Acid from Japanese Cornelia Cherry helps to soothe skin and reduce the appearance of redness.
  • Mannose-6-Phosphate helps to smooth and firm the skin.
  • Hydrolysed Wheat Flour, rich in Arabinoxylo-Oligosaccharides, brightens skin and helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots.
  • Oligosaccharides from Hydrolysed Beta Glucan helps skin to maintain optimal hydration levels.

This hydrating serum also contains a rich blend of minerals, Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide, and Vitamin E providing a moisturising base with barrier enhancing properties.

How to use

Each morning after cleansing and toning, apply one to two pumps of Smart Response Serum. Allow one minute for product absorption and follow with your prescribed Dermalogica moisturiser or SPF. It can also be used in the evening or you may wish to use another Dermalogica serum such as a retinol containing formula or one to tackle breakouts.

Smart Response Serum delivers a personalised response every time, for healthier skin overtime.

Learn the truth about sun damage and your skin!

Learn the truth about sun damage and your skin.

  • Not all sunscreens are equal. To find the best formula for you, pay attention to the labels.
  • Your body is exposed to UV radiation every day, whether you're indoors or out. Wearing a generous amount daily helps protect your skin from premature signs of aging, as well as skin cancer.

Healthy, smooth, even-toned skin – and good health – are the trade-offs for golden tans and too much time in the sun. Surprisingly, many people who think they are protecting themselves are following outdated, inaccurate advice that is jeopardizing their long-term skin health. Let's go over some of the things you should know.

Not all sunscreens protect against both UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) rays.
Many people think that applying any old SPF will keep us safe from both kinds of the sun's harmful rays. Unfortunately, this is not true. To understand why, look closely at the labels, ingredients and physical forms of the products you are buying.

SPF (Sun Protection Factor) indicates how long it will take for UVB rays – the main cause of sunburn – to redden the skin. For example, SPF 15 means it will take 15 times longer for skin to redden with the product on than without it. This has nothing to do with UVA rays, which are the same rays emitted by tanning booths. UVA rays penetrate the skin more deeply, and play a major part in accelerating the signs of skin aging and generating skin cancer.

To protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays, don't just buy a product with an SPF of 15 or higher. Make sure it is labeled "Broad Spectrum," which means it contains a combination of ingredients known to protect skin against both types of UV rays. These could be chemical or physical sunscreens or a combination thereof. Chemical sunscreens (e.g., Avobenzone, Oxybenzone), work by absorbing ultraviolet (UV) radiation and physical sunscreens (e.g.,Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide), reflect or scatter UV radiation.

Chemical or physical sunscreen? It's a matter of preference.
Chemical sunscreens absorb into the skin and are usually more popular because they feel lighter and look less noticeable. They use active ingredients like Avobenzone, Octinoxate, Oxybenzone and Helioplex.

Physical sunscreens, or mineral sunscreens, sit on the surface of the skin. They can feel heavier and look more noticeable, but they provide added coverage and are more resistant to sweating and swimming. Look for active ingredients like Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide to identify them.

A base tan does not protect you from the sun.
There is no such thing as a safe tan. By definition, a suntan is your skin's defense to being harmed by UV exposure. Your cells respond to the affront by producing more melanin (pigment), and your skin darkens as a result. There is nothing healthy or preventive to be gained from trying to acquire a base tan.

Sunscreen isn't just for the summer.
Sun damage doesn’t just happen during the summer months or while at the beach. Photo damage or UV exposure (which causes aging) can occur from exposure to daylight through clouds, rain, glass and even fluorescent indoor lighting. This is why protecting the skin every day is imperative. Roughly 90 percent of photo aging is preventable by wearing SPF daily, so slather up!

You're probably not using enough sunscreen.
As a general rule, creams and lotions tend to deliver better protection than spray formulations, which most people don't apply enough of to get adequate coverage. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends a "liberal use" of SPF 30 (picture a shot glass full of lotion) for the body, and reapplying every two hours (or after swimming or exercising). For the face, the rule of thumb is one teaspoon of sunscreen to deliver the SPF protection on the package.

Sensitised skin explained

If you have the redness, discomfort, and dehydration associated with sensitive skin, your environment may be to blame. Studies are showing that environmental triggers (yes, the very air we breathe) can actually sensitize our skin. Sensitized skin from your environment is different from genetic sensitivity, or being born with sensitive skin.

What do we mean by your environment? Think pollution, humidity, and sudden temperature changes in climates – like going from the cold, dry winds outdoors to dry heat indoors.

sensitised skin explained

When your skin is sensitised, its protective outer layer lets irritants, microbes and allergens pass through and cause adverse reactions such as blushing and allergies. Air pollution particles hover in big cities, the countryside and even in homes. Small enough to enter skin, they can accelerate skin sensitivity and irritation.

Is your environment sensitizing your skin?

culprit #1: pollution

Air pollution contains microscopic contaminants, called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), which help produce Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), or "free radicals." These strip the skin of barrier lipids, which help retain moisture and keep out dirt and other impurities. A compromised skin barrier can lead to increased skin sensitivity, discomfort and even premature signs of skin aging.

culprit #2: humidity

When the skin is exposed to low humidity, this moisture evaporates quickly, leading to dryness, irritation, and peeling.

High humidity levels can also impact the skin. Your pores on the skin absorb moisture, which is normally a good thing. However, high humidity levels can lead to excess sweat and oil production therefor clogging your pores with toxins. Additionally, high humidity promotes the growth of bacteria and mold resulting in skin irritation, redness, and even breakouts.

To top it all off, humidity can even cause the body to sweat more, which also dries the skin out.

culprit #3: temperature

Colder weather, central heating in your home as well as hot weather and air conditioning can all deprive skin of its moisture, leaving it feeling dry, irritated, and sensitive. Bitter cold winds can also strip moisture from skin left exposed. In the winter months, you might find your skin to be rough, red, tight, cracked or peeling. Ouch!

The heat can also lead to skin sensitivities like a heat rash, which happens when your sweat ducts get closed off. The moisture gets trapped under the skin and can lead to a rash made up of blisters or bumps!

The good news is that the skin – when healthy – is a pretty efficient filter of what's good versus what's bad on its own. And, since you can’t always avoid harsh environmental factors like pollution or extreme weather, here’s how to keep your skin calm, strong, and healthy.

the solution? find strength in sensitivity

The UltraCalming line soothes dehydration and discomfort – so you can stop hiding behind skin sensitivity. Every UltraCalming product is also formulated without lanolin, SD alcohol, mineral oil, artificial fragrances or colors, which can make sensitive skin worse.

The sensitive skin rescue kit is a great way to try the range.

 

 

Kit includes UltraCalming Cleanser, UltraCalming Mist and Calm Water Gel

I have been using Dermalogica Super Rich Cream daily for some years now. Also sometimes use the Total Eye Care. I have Rhinitus and Allergy issues and have to be careful what I put on my face. Should also say I am mid 70s. I absolutely LOVE this cream and the company Logicalskincare is the best for Value for Money. I have shopped about. Place your order, immediate response and delivery within a day or two. Ideal.
