Your skincare history and skin barrier function are as unique as your fingerprint!
This is why some of our client’s skin will go through an adjustment or transition phase when they first start using Dermaviduals.
This is something we don’t want you to be scared of! Let’s break it down and empower you through this transformation!
NOT ALL SKINCARE BRANDS CARE
Previous brands you were using may have contained:
- Mineral Oils
- Perfumes/Essential oils
While these ingredients smell great and can make the surface of your skin feel great, when you peak deeper into the layers of your skin chaos has taken place and skin cell communication has also been cut off!
It can take 4-12 weeks for the ingredients within your old skincare brand to be removed or “purged” from the skin which can cause temporary redness/dryness/breakouts.
GOODBYE, SAFETY BLANKET
Once you stop using your old skincare brand you have suddenly removed your skin’s “safety blanket” that it had grown used to over the years. Suddenly your skin cells need to re-learn how to communicate. This process also takes time and can trigger that adjustment or transition phase.
When you start to learn a new skill for the first time you don’t become a pro overnight. The same goes for your little skin cells, give them time to learn to work at their optimum and restore function!
HELLO, MEDICAL-GRADE DELIVERY SYSTEMS
Dermaviduals is a medical-grade skincare company that uses a powerful DMS delivery system.
Old skincare you used = Sits on the surface of the skin
Dermaviduals = Penetrates deep into the dermis of the skin
This means powerful and active ingredients are able to influence your skin cells and their function. Give your skin time to adjust to this powerful delivery system!
28 days = 1 new cycle of skin cells – therefore, it can take up to 3 new skin cycles for your skin to rebalance
WHAT ON EARTH ARE LANGERHANS CELLS?
These cells act as “security guards”. They’ve involved in your skin’s innate and adaptive immunity. Your Langerhan cells are reactivated as you are now using new medical-grade products that penetrate deeper into your skin. Stored silicone/fragrances/essential oils from your old skincare are suddenly able to hitch a ride with the Dermaviduals DMS delivery system and penetrate deeper into the skin as well. Your security guards notice this and immediately create an immune reaction – redness/irritation/inflammation/redness and breakouts. This is why it can be important to avoid mixing other products/brands with your Dermaviduals products (unless advised by your practitioner). Your old products can take 4-12 weeks to purge from the skin.
Super interesting fact – Langerhan cells are concentrated around our mouth and eyes. Have you ever noticed that these areas of your skin are the first to flare after exposure to a chemical/food intolerance/stressor!?
This is why!
