Dermalogica solves your makeup problems with a dash of Phyto Replenish Oil
A little oil added to foundation keeps the lines from showingBy Patti Covello Pietschmann
Don’t you hate it when makeup seeps into your fine lines making it more noticeable than before? I've been there and it isn't pretty. But I just got word of a nifty solution from Dermalogica that advises adding a few drops of Dermalogica®, Phyto Replenish Oil into your concealer or foundation for a balanced, hydrating finish. What's more it also helps with dry or chapped skin. I'm going to do it asap.
NEW Dermalogica® Phyto Replenish Oil , which sells for $75 at authorized Dermalogica® spa, salons and skin centers nationwide, Ulta Beauty, Bluemercury and Dermalogica.com is made up of plant-based active ingredients to cthat strengthens and restores the skin’s natural protective barrier, shields against environmental stressors, smooths visible lines, and locks in critical moisture for all-day dewy skin.
For a dewy look apply 4-6 drops of Phyto Replenish Oil in the palm of one hand. Press hands together to spread the product evenly, turn one hand and swipe to spread. Lightly press the oil onto the face, beginning at the forehead, then cheeks, nose, chin and neck. Spread put to hairline.
For forehead wrinkle removal place fingertips together in the middle of the forehead with hands and elbows out, press firmly. Next glide with fingers together with slight pressure to the temples, press and release. Repeat 3 times. This helps to smooth and relax the muscles and improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles brought on by stress.
Turn that frown upside down by using your middle or index finger, press between the brows on the 3rd eye and stroke over the brows around the eyes returning to the center. Next still using your finger, move in an S shape to release and soften the muscle between the brows. This is where we see frown lines or what we call the 11s. Glide around the eyes again, return to center and repeat the press, glide and drain. Now repeat the S movement. Perform this sequence 4 times in total, alternating between presses and S’s. This is a fantastic movement to reduce puffiness, alleviate headaches, eye strain and sinus pain and enhance skin glow and health.
Three Point Press: Using your index or middle finger press either side of the nostril, release and slide to the glow point under the lower cheek bone and press. Glide towards the ear and press in the hollow just in front of the ear. These key pressure points may feel a little tender but help to encourage circulation and detoxification the skin while boosting inner skin radiance.
Don't drop your jaw, lift and loosen with flat fingers, starting at the center of the shin, massage out along the jawline with small upward circles. When you reach to just below the ear, press and drain down the side of neck with your fingers open towards the collarbone. Repeat 3 times. This helps to release stress and tension in the jaw, increases lymphatic drainage and improves skin tone and circulation.
