For over 20 years I’ve been asked the question – How can I achieve normal skin?

Honestly? - what’s NORMAL when we’re talking about skin??

For years we’ve been conditioned to view skin in three catagories:-

Normal

Oily

Combination

But what’s that??

Oily – during various stages in our lives our skin can produce excess oil leading to blackheads and pimples. But how often is this skin type dehydrated and scarred?

Combination – this is usually described as having an oily ‘T’ zone and dry around the sides of the face. But how often is this skin type red and sensitized?

Normal - to me this would resemble the skin of a new born baby – the perfect combination of oil and water, no pigmentation or sun damage, no breakout of any kind, and definitely no redness or sensitivity on the cheeks!

 

Really??  How often do we see this type of skin??

 

So I decided to ask people what they meant when they asked for “normal” skin, and the answers were amazing!

Basically it would appear that “normal” skin is something you can cover with make-up and look OK, i.e. Socially Acceptable” - regardless of what’s lurking underneath!

I’ve spent the last 20 years educating people that the best thing they can do for their skin is use the correct skin care and – wait for it – a chemical free sunscreen – every day!

If we can achieve “Healthy Skin”, not only will our cells last longer preventing us from premature aging, but over time, instead of causing problems, your cells will normalise creating the perfect balance!

DermaDNA - Formulated with science, inspired by nature, and created with care for animals and the environment, DermaDNA is a one-stop on-line clinic that deeply understands skin. 

Having been a Clinical Skin Therapist for over 20 years I had many clients with similar skin concerns – Acne, Sensitivity, Diffused Redness, Pigmentation - all with a similar story! 

Most of my clients had experienced mild to severe hormonal teenage Acne during their teens and had started using over the counter skincare to treat this.  As the products they were using had helped – in most cases – they continued to use them throughout their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and often into their 50’s. 

However during their 40’s they started noticing changes in their skin, such as dryness, redness and a feeling of tightness and heat with pigmentation starting to appear more noticeable.  This is generally due to hormonal changes as we progress through peri-menopause, on into menopause, and beyond!

It wasn’t until the skin was showing sever signs of stress that most people choose to seek professional assistance. Year after year the same cycle would occur with instant changes requested!!

Hence the conception of DermaDNA cosmeceutical skincare.

By combining scientific knowledge, clinical experience and natural ingredients, DermaDNA works at a cellular level to effect change.

However once damage has occurred it is extremely hard to reverse, which change effective to normalize the cells and prevent future damage.

That’s why it’s important to use the correct skincare for your skin type at an early age.

By using our Virtual Therapist and answering a few questions, DermaDNA provides a prescription unique for your personal skin type and condition.

And our Virtual Therapist is always available for you which means that any time your skin changes, simply visit www.dermadna.com and have your skin reassessed!
