Dermalogica Moisturisers

Dermalogica Moisturisers work on two levels, regulating skin's water balance while managing your most pressing skin concerns for better-looking skin daily. Moisturisers are greatly misunderstood, as they do much more than just moisten dehydrated skin!

Emollients help keep skin soft and smooth, can help regulate excessive oiliness or dryness, and even help protect against environmental assaults that trigger sensitivity, premature aging, and skin damage.

Those with oily or breakout-prone skin conditions are often resistant to use moisturisers out of concern they will increase surface oils and shine. However, surface oils are different than water content in the skin, and oily skin can experience dehydration. Dehydration is a lack of water, not oil, in the skin. Meaning moisturisers are a must for every skin condition.

While regulating moisture loss, Dermalogica Moisturisers take the care of your skin one step further. If you struggle with excess oiliness, we have a moisturiser that contains "microsponges" that absorb excess surface oils for an all-day matte finish. Is your skin so sensitive it can't even tolerate water? We have an anhydrous (waterless) moisturiser that glides over the skin and acts as a protective environmental shield.

There are a lot of moisturizers out there – which can make finding the right one for your skin deceptively tricky. 

Use this guide to help find the right moisturiser for you!
