Our skin is fascinating. It’s our largest and fastest-growing organ, and it’s responsible for protecting against bacteria and defending against the elements.
With a constantly changing environment, our skin also changes. This is further amplified by other daily lifestyle factors such as our diet, hormonal fluctuations and stress levels. As a result we experience changes that concern us - some are constant and others come and go.
What are targeted treatments?
Targeted Treatments are specific products that help treat these concerns and they are game changers in the world of skincare. A targeted treatment can be a serum, an oil or booster. What makes them a targeted treatment is their high percentage of cosmeceutical active ingredients that work effectively and fast to target specific skin concerns.
Why you should use a targeted treatment
To keep our skin looking and feeling its very best, we need to be armed and ready with targeted treatments that’ll take on these skin issues when they strike.
If they’re not part of your skincare arsenal, this can be detrimental to healthy skin - the longer these issues linger, the more damage is caused.
For example, if a breakout is left untreated, the infection will worsen and you’re more likely to see scaring. Or, if we don’t nip dehydration in the bud, this can go multiple ways. Our skin may respond by producing extra oil, causing our pores to become clogged, and/or our skin can become red and irritated.
Having a handful of targeted treatments not only keeps healthy skin in check but is a sure way to turn up the glow factor.
Fast and Flexible
- The beauty of target treatments lies in their flexibility and their fast response. They can be adapted to whatever the skin requires - use them daily, weekly, monthly, on a particular area, or all over.
- If you experience specific ongoing concerns, then you would use your Dermalogica targeted treatment daily. For example, we know that dehydration, a common skin complaint that many of us struggle with, can be easily controlled by incorporating a hydrating serum into your daily regimen.
- We may also have a targeted treatment on hand when our skin needs them, for example with breakouts.
- Achieving healthy skin comes down to being flexible and being able to adapt to the skins needs, which is why targeted treatments are so effective.
Using Targeted Treatments with Your Other Skincare
Targeted treatments are applied after your toner and eye treatments. As a rule of thumb, if using multiple targeted treatments, apply your lightest first.
Also, be mindful that if you're using a breakout treatment, always apply it first and patchwork other targeted treatments around your breakouts for maximum results.
With an extensive range of target treatments, Dermalogica has got you covered for every possible skin issue.
