Did you know that you are unique? There is no one quite like you, isn’t that amazing! Everyone is different. Everyone’s skin is different. That means, when it comes to skincare, a product that suits one person’s skin, won’t necessarily suit another person’s skin. A skin concern that you might be dealing with, won’t be the same as the skin concern your friend is dealing with.
Dermalogica knows this so well, which is why they have created several different skin care ranges. There is something to suit everyone’s skin. There’s the hero products, the ultracalming range for sensitive skin, the AGE smart range for more mature skin and the active clearing range for breakout prone skin to name a few.
The beauty of Dermalogica skin care is that it can be ‘prescriptive’, meaning you can tailor the products you use to suit your skincare needs. The idea is that you can use all the products within a range or you can pick and choose products from the different ranges to suit your skin needs. So you can build up a regimen that helps you achieve your happiest, healthiest skin.

Next up for our quick Jersey guide is the UltraCalming range. Dermalogica has created the UltraCalming range to deal with sensitivity. It is designed to address the top three concerns of people with sensitive skin: redness, discomfort and dehydration.
There are different causes behind skin sensitivity. The triggers could be due to genetics, hormones, stress, chemical assaults foods and even aggressive skin treatments can intensify skin’s highly reactive state.
Signs of sensitive skin are often seen by itching, burning, stinging and redness. The common thread behind irritation, flushing and stinging is inflammation. When paired with the loss of skin’s protective barrier, skin health is compromised and becomes highly reactive.
The range has been developed with a soothing complex to control the inflammation that irritates sensitive skin. Dermalogica Ultracalming products contain an exclusive calming complex clinically proven to control inflammatory pathways helping to dramatically reduce redness and irritation.
All of the UltraCalming products contain the UltraCalming Complex consisting of:
Avena Sativa (Oat Kernel) extract - with natural anti-irritant and anti-redness
Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Extract and Bisabolol (derived from Chamomile)- to reduce inflammation and irritation
Boerhavia Diffusa (Red Hogweed) Root Extract - promotes the production of natural anti-inflammatory agents in the skin
The UltraCalming range contains a cleanser, moisturisers, serums and a 2 in 1 serum and toner. You could use all the products in the range or just pick 1 or 2 to introduce into your regimen. If you often experience redness, irritation, burning or itching on the skin on your face, the UltraCalming range is probably just what your skin needs. Have a read of our quick Jersey guide below.
Perfect cleanser if you have super sensitive skin because it easily rinses away without leaving an irritating residue – and can be wiped off without water. The gentle, pH-balanced gel-cream cleanser glides easily over the face and eyes, and doesn’t strip the skin’s protective barrier.
Redness Relief Essence is a must if you want to diminish visible skin redness, while bringing balance and stability to your sensitive skin. This redness-reducing essence is as lightweight as a toner, but concentrated like a serum. Use after you have cleansed but before you moisturise.
Barrier Defense Booster is the ideal serum to soothe the discomfort associated with sensitive skin. This concentrated oil booster soothes, nourishes and moisturises to restore balance to sensitive skin.
Barrier Repair is a moisturiser if you are prone to redness, irritation and/or discomfort may have a compromised skin barrier. This velvety moisturiser gently melts into skin to soothe and reinforce its protective barrier.
Calm Water Gel is perfect if you often experience dehydration and irritation along with skin sensitivity. This weightless water-gel moisturiser transforms into a skin-quenching fluid upon activation, forming a weightless barrier against environmental assault.
