Dermalogica gets ‘lippy’26 June 2017 Yasmeenah Abrahams, Renata Louw and Ilze ErasmusAt a launch held at the Dermalogica Concept Store in Midrand’s Mall of Africa on 22 June, Dermalogica South African introduced the new Nightly Lip Treatment, created to firm, hydrate and restore skin in the perioral region. Said Dermalogica education specialist, Unine Van Rooyen: “As we age there are a lot of physiological (intrinsic) and environmental (extrinsic) changes that affect our skin. From the age of 30, we lose about 1% of collagen every year. Ageing on the perioral area manifests in the form of nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Furthermore, the corners of the mouth sag and jowels form on each side, resulting in the loss of definition on the jaw. We also lose fat on the lips, which lack the protective outer layer (stratum corneum) that facial skin has. They also lack the same composition of oil and sweat glands that provide moisture to other areas of the face, while at the same time, saliva dries out the natural oils of the lips.”Key ingredients in the Nightly Lip Treatment include Indian Gentian extract to help reduce skin fragility and reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the lips. Volumising technology helps to volumise lips and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Sesame seed extract aids in smoothing and decreasing the appearance of nasolabial fold lines, wrinkles and roughness, while shea butter increases hydration, improves skin elasticity and restores barrier function against visible signs of ageing. Pyrus Malus (apple) fruit extract and glycerin complex enhance skin hydration and smooth the lips. (Report by Joanna Sterkowicz)
