Questions

which skinceuticals or dermalogica product?

Question: Hi, I am a 32 year old Asian male living in Hawaii. I previously lived in WA state where I had been using daily sunscreen and products from Aveda. Upon moving to Hawaii, I found my already oily skin to be much more oily and switched my skin care regime. I currently use products from Cosmedix. I use their Purity Clean, and exfoliating cleanser, followed by Purity Balance, an exfoliating prep (toner) and then Benefit Balance, an antioxidant prep as a moisturizer. I use their Eye Believe eye cream nightly. I have not been using any sunscreen (unless I am specifically going to the beach) as it seems to make my skin VERY oily and greasy. Recently I have heard through friends about both the Skinceuticals line and Dermalogica line of products and would like to consider switching over to either one of them as it appears they are easy to obtain via your website. I am willing to take the time to take care of my skin. I don't have wrinkles, but the skin around my eyes are slowly starting to show laugh lines. I would like to use a sunscreen or sun protection but am concerned with the heavy greasy shine that I am left with for the remainder of the day. In reading reviews of the Skinceuticals serum, I began to wonder if that was something that I would benefit from....Please let me know as soon as convenient what your opinion would be to help my skin both currently and in the future. I do appreciate this and have tried to provide as specific information as possible to assist you in your evaluation. THANKS!!!
Answer:

To address your oily skin I suggest you cleanse with Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser, tone with Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner. During the day I recommend you apply Dermalogica Total Eye Care and at night I recommend you use Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair. During the day I recommend you use Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion and to protect the skin I suggest Dermalogica Oil Free Matte Block SPF 20.

At night I recommend cleansing and toning with the same product, however I recommend more hydrating products such as Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream. Keep in mind you should also be exfoliating regularly with Dermalogica Daily Resurfacer. Please feel free to contact me with any further questions. Best skin care wishes.
