We know that everyone’s skin is different, but for individuals with dry skin, the focus for a skin care regimen can truly benefit from strengthening the lipid barrier to keep dryness at bay and lock moisture in. When the barrier is compromised, the skin becomes more vulnerable to moisture loss and is affected by weather changes or environmental stress. It can show up on the skin as flaking, dullness, roughness, tightness, or even irritation. In this episode we are chatting with Dermalogica Global Curriculum Developer, Jennifer Ahartz about our new innovation Melting Moisture Masque. She shares brilliant information on dry vs dehydrated skin and why barrier lipids are so critical. Then we dive right in to all the details about Melting Moisture Masque, including ingredients, how to use it and the benefits of a leave on masque. We also cover use for at-home and in the treatment room along with a fun Q&A to get all of your questions answered.

Every moment we are exposed to daylight adds up like money in the bank --the problem is the payoff. This means that unprotected skin will inevitably exhibit premature aging, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. The best defense is to limit daylight exposure and protect skin with a broad spectrum sunscreen along with other protective measures such as shade, clothing and good common sense. In this episode, Brooke Anderson, Dermalogica National Accounts Instructor from Canada joins us to talk all about UV rays, the difference between physical and chemical sunscreen and how to choose the right SPF for your skin. She also dives into the details about Dermalogica's innovative sunscreen, Invisible Physical Defense SPF 30.
