Are you are new to skincare? Would you like to add some products into your daily routine for a specific concern? Or are you perhaps wanting to try a new brand?
With so many different cleansers and toners available on the shelf, it is often very easy to become intimidated. Knowing your skin type is important as this will start you off in the right direction as to which products you should be looking for. While you may have an idea of what your exact skin type may be, it is always recommend that you have a thorough skin analysis performed. This is where your DermaFix Skin Care Professional comes in. Through a 10-15 minute skin analysis they can advise which one of the five basic skin types you are, namely; combination, dry, normal, sensitive or oily.
Once your skin type has been determined, a basic skin care routine can be established. This sets the foundation towards improving the health of the skin, as well as helping to address some of your skins immediate needs. A basic routine should essentially include the use of a cleanser, a toner, an exfoliator, a moisturiser as well as an SPF. Where sensitivity exists, it is always recommended to address this concern first before targeting the other needs of the skin. A DermaFix Skin Care Professional will take all your needs into consideration and will work out a skin recommendation specific to your individual needs.
At times your initial recommendation may need to be adjusted or tweaked in order to match your skin hydration needs. This is where sampling comes in handy. Samples help in that they provide you with opportunity to know if the texture of the products are right for you, and that you have no unknown allergies to the product. DermaFix Cosmeceutical Skin Care offers samples across all cleansers, exfoliators and moisturisers within the range, ensuring you get the try-before-you-buy experience and allowing you to feel comfortable with how the product works and feels on your skin.
So what about serums, boosters and masques? While it is tempting to introduce a full range to the skin, DermaFix Cosmeceutical Skin Care recommends a slow introduction across some of the more corrective actives. Adding too many products to a skin not used to actives may cause the skin to have an initial negative response and may include flushing, breakout activity and possible dryness. This response is usually temporary and may be overcome by slowing down on initial usage of product. Allow time for your skin to respond to your new products, and always remember to chat to your DermaFix Skin Care Professional should you have any questions surrounding your new routine.
Once your skin has become more comfortable with the introduction of new products, you can look to start introducing other products into your routine that will help to advance your routine, These may include the addition of more active correctives for home-use, or the integration of more advanced in-clinic protocols such as Chemical Peeling or Microneedling.
