Replenish dry and dehydrated skin with Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Cleanser 295ml, this light and creamy cleanser lifts away impurities while actively preserving barrier lipids and nourishing dry skin. Infused with the brands BioReplenish Complex and Phytoactives from Coconut and Murumuru Seed Butter, that work to minimise damage of vital proteins and lipids that defend against dryness. Intensive Moisture Cleanser has invigorating extracts of Citrus, Palmarosa and Jasmine to revive dull and tired skin. This creamy cleanser rinses away with ease, leaving skin soft and smooth with improved resilience to defend against dryness.

How it works:

  • Defends against dryness
  • Delivers a smoother feel after cleansing
  • Rinses away easily and leaves skin cleaner, softer and more luminous

How to Cleanse Dry Skin:

People with dry skin should use gentle, creamy, non foaming cleansers that contain nourishing phytolipids. Avoid cleansing with hot water and over exfoliating skin, as well as stripping ingredients such as alcohol, acetone and retinoids.

Does your facial cleanser leave your skin feeling tight?

It might be too harsh for you. Many foaming, soapy cleansers contain harsh surfactants that break down oils and leave a squeaky clean feeling, but not without compromising skin proteins and lipids that defend against dryness. As a result, the skins protective lipid barrier becomes weaker and rapidly lets out moisture and lets in irritants such as dry air and allergens. This is why skin feels tighter and more sensitive after washing.

How Dermalogica can help?

Choose a gentle, creamy, non foaming cleanser such as Intensive Moisture Cleanser, which can remove even long wear makeup while nourishing dry skin. Intensive Moisture Cleanser uses a special surfactant system that is pre-saturated with fatty acids to help prevent skin from feeling stripped after cleansing. It also contains nourishing plant oils that help further preserve the integrity of the skins lipid barrier.

If you need to remove stubborn residue from skin, do the Dermalogica Double Cleanse by using Precleanse Balm prior to Intensive Moisture Cleanser, as it breaks down all kinds of debris without disrupting the skin barrier.

Only use lukewarm water and not hot, as excessive heat can further deplete the skins protective barrier and lead to more dryness, itchiness and inflammation.

Exfoliate no more than twice a week, and avoid stripping ingredients. Over exfoliating and using skin care ingredients such as alcohol, acetone, AHAs, BHAs and retinoids can also deplete lipids, exacerbating that taut feeling.

Apply Intensive Moisture Balance immediately after cleansing. This reinforces the lipid barrier and locks in moisture. Misting skin with Multi Active Toner before you apply moisturiser can also help boost product performance. Nourishing moisturisers like Intensive Moisture Balance contain ingredients such as ceramides, fatty acids and sterols to defend skin against dryness.

Cleansing dry skin without compromising your lipid barrier can go a long way toward relieving discomfort and promoting a healthy looking, radiant glow.

How to use: Massage onto dampened face and neck. Rinse with warm water. Use twice daily, morning and night.

Expert beauty tip: Prep skin with Multi Active Toner to enhance moisturiser absorption.
