Oiliness?

Oily skin is caused by excess androgen hormones, which can be a result of puberty, cycles, or menopause. Oily skin can also lead to acne, as the oil prevents skin cells from properly shedding.

Dermalogica has numerous products for treating oily skin. To make sure of what's right for you, take their Speed Mapping test.

Acne and Breakouts?

While teenagers are often the most associated group to get acne, adults get it too! The primary cause? Chronic stress. Picking and squeezing can create even more bacteria on the skin, leading to more headache.

Dermalogica has several products to choose from that can help regulate sebaceous glands as well as promote exfoliation, kill bacteria, and soothe inflammation. Learn more about the products Dermalogica offers to help battle breakouts.


Signs of Skin Aging?

UV exposure, stress, inflammation, pollution, and more can contribute to the aging of your skin. Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs) are formed when our cells react with proteins (such as collagen), which leads to wrinkles, inflammation, inhibited skin cell growth and accelerated aging. Inflammation is critical to the aging process and many diseases including diabetes, muscle weakness, heart disease and many diseases of the brain that are associated with glycation. Scientists now believe that reducing glycation is a means of slowing the aging process and disease formation. Head to Dermalogica's line of products dedicated to slowing the aging process.


Uneven Skin Tone?

UV light can cause hyperpigmentation of the hands, face, and neck in specific spots, often called age spots. Genetics, hormonal factors, prescription drugs, and cosmetics can also hinder the growth of healthy skin tissue, which is why Dermalogica has a line of products with ingredients that help to brighten and even skin tone.


Sensitivity or Redness?

Fairer skin is more prone to redness and sensitivity, but lifestyle and the environment can also play a role in causing havoc (pollution, smoking, poor diet, hormones). Inflammation is mostly to blame for flare-ups with the help of a lacking protective barrier on the skin, known as the epidermal lipid barrier layer.

Try out Dermalogica's line of products that can help you recover and find relief from skin sensitivity and redness.


Dryness? Dehydration?

If you live in Calgary, you know how dry it can get! Dry and dehydrated skin can give you a feeling of tightness, cause flaking, and can even cause cracking in the skin. Dry skin tends to increase with age due to the reduction in activity of the sebaceous glands that produce oil for your skin, as well as partaking in fat-free diets that don't include essential fatty acids.

Luckily Dermalogica has a line to help hydrate your skin back to health.
