My skin has never been dry. I’m a maniac about moisturizing, so if anything my skin is usually more oily than most people would prefer. So when I noticed the skin around my nose and chin flaking a few weeks back when the weather started to get cold, I started to freak. I was already using facial oil; how could my skin still be dry?
I decided to try a new moisturizer, one with some serious tech to keep skin hydrated. I went with Dermalogica’s Skin Smoothing Cream because it has Active HydraMesh Technology™ which claims to “infuse your skin with 48 hours of continuous hydration.” This is just what I needed.
It’s been about two weeks since I started using Dermalogica’s Skin Smoothing Cream and I haven’t seen a single flake of dry skin. I am beyond impressed. I wash my face every night, so I can’t weigh in on whether or not this moisturizer keeps your skin hydrated for two days, but I can tell you that it definitely keeps my skin smooth, soft and flake-free from the time I put it on at 7 o’clock in the morning to the time I wash it off at 10 o’clock at night. Even on super cold days when I’m blowing my nose and wiping my watery eyes when it’s windy, this skin cream really does lock in moisture and protect my skin from drying.
I also really love that a little bit of this cream goes a long way. Some of my other moisturizers definitely required a good slathering to feel like my skin was adequately hydrated, but with Dermalogica’s Skin Smoothing Cream I just apply five small dots on my cheeks, forehead, chin and neck. I rub it in for about a minute and then my skin feels totally moisturized. Given that this cream is $69 (a splurge, I know!), I really appreciate that I’ll have the tube for a long time before I need to replace it.
If nothing you’ve tried so far has worked to heal your dry, flaky skin, you really should treat yourself to Dermalogica’s Skin Smoothing Cream. I have no regrets about trying it because it really does keep my skin hydrated and healthy on cold, windy days.
