The everyday essential! Moisturizers provide skin with critical protection from moisture loss, pollution and the elements. Apply moisturizers twice daily after cleansing to avoid excess dehydration and sensitivity.

This is likely the one step you feel quite familiar with but did you know that the moisturizer you use in the summer isn't working as well in the winter? Now that you’ve applied your serum or booster of choice, it’s time to finish off your skin care regime with a moisturizer to seal it in for best results. During Alberta winters you may want to choose a moisturizer that’s richer/more emollient, then one you’d use in the summer - a must if you're out skiing, walking or tobogganing with the kiddos.
Dermalogica’s Super Rich Repair is an age-fighting ultra nourishing moisturizer that is great for normal or sensitive skin. It contains Shea Butter and Oil of Evening Primrose to sooth and insulate the skin against extreme enviro conditions.
TIP: In “sunny Alberta” we still need to consider sun protection in the winter so I recommend you add the Solar Defence Booster SPF 50 to your cream to give it the sun protection you need. Or use the Tinted Skin Perfect Primer SPF 30 to blend out any imperfections whilst protecting you from the sun.
As mentioned above, protecting your skin from sun damage is important. This next product saves you a step as it's your moisturizer and SPF in one! Dynamic Skin Recovery is an age-fighting, photo-protecting moisturizer that encourages firmness and elasticity. Lock in moisture to prevent water loss as well as sun protection.
TIP: Apply 30 minutes prior to sun exposure. Good for combination, normal and dry skin.
