Dermalogica Hosts its Annual Education Conference

Dermalogica recently welcomed more than 140 senior instructors, corporate trainers, and education managers representing more than 50 countries to the brand’s 23rd annual International Education Conference. The weeklong conference was held at Dermalogica world headquarters in Carson, CA, May 23 to May 27. This year’s conference focused on the importance of sparking new ideas through more than 40 different presentations, activities, and skill workshops. During the conference, Jane Wurwand at Dermalogica's 23rd annual International Education Conferenceeducators and distributors from around the world gathered to learn new skincare techniques, enhance their training skills, and learn about new brand concepts.
Program host Annet King, senior director of global education for Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute, kicked off the week with a presentation on the theme, Spark! Ignite Ideas, Design the Future. During the presentation, King introduced the idea of ‘spark tanks’ or engaging brainstorming sessions where attendees worked together to produce innovative concepts for the future. Attendees also heard from Jane Wurwand, cofounder and chief visionary for Dermalogica, The International Dermal Institute, and FITE. Wurwand spoke about finding a purpose in life and sharing it with others, and she introduced the company’s new CEO Aurelian Lis who presented on the direction and focus for Dermalogica for 2016 and beyond. Lis also spoke about how critical human touch is to the Dermalogica brand and stressed the importance of social media, encouraging attendees to engage in the initiative.
Other highlights from the week included presentations from vice president of global marketing and creative Mathew Divaris, who shared Dermalogica’s brand mission with the guests and talked about strategies to reach new consumers, and vice president of research and development Diana Howard, Ph.D., who introduced new products for the brand. Attendees also learned about Dermalogica’s new application face method, which will be released along with the next product launch on September 1. Senior instructors at the conference received a hands-on demonstration of the IonActive Power Treatment and learned new ways to re-invent education to ensure Dermalogica’s skin therapists worldwide are up-to-date and continue offering their best skills, techniques, and treatments to their customers.

Lip Locked: 5 Moisture Tips for the Perfect Pout


Lips enable us to kiss the people we love, put the ‘P’ into pooch and make funny fish faces when we are bored. But do we ever stop to think about the difference between our lips and the rest of our skin? And do our lips deserve special treatment? Although the lips have a dermis and epidermis like the rest of the body, the uppermost layer called the Stratum Corneum is much thinner than anywhere else on your body. Your lips also don’t have any sebaceous glands, which assist in keeping the skin soft and protected. Their only source of moisture is your saliva, and that’s why they can easily become dry and chapped. Another difference between your lips and the rest of your skin is that your lips don’t have any melanin, the pigment that darkens when you’re exposed to the sun. Melanin is your body’s natural way of protecting your skin from ultraviolet rays, and because your lips don’t have any, they’re at a higher risk of getting sunburned. So it’s pretty clear that our poor old lips need some assistance in order to stay hydrated, plumped and free from cracks. Enter lip balms!
A basic lip balm is usually formulated using a barrier ingredient like petrolatum or beeswax with the addition of perhaps a humectant and something that smells and tastes nice. Sounds fine, but a humectant’s job is to attract water—so if there is no water in the product, guess where the water is drawn from. Yes, you! And fragrance may make you imagine you are biting into a fat juicy strawberry but actually can cause dryness and irritation of itself. So what can you do to keep those lips luscious?

1. If you lick your lips, STOP! Although it can be a difficult habit to break, licking your lips can contribute significantly to dry, cracked skin. The saliva evaporates quickly, taking with it any moisture that was already on your lips and leaving them even drier, especially in winter air.

2. If winter weather has left your home cool and dry, consider using a humidifier to increase the level of moisture in the air around you. This can be especially helpful if you run it overnight in your bedroom while you sleep.

3. Exfoliate lips gently with a rice bran exfoliant and follow with a hydrating masque to combat roughness and cracking.

4. Apply a protective treatment balm before leaving the house with shea butter to enhance the barrier, oats and lavender to soothe irritation and an anti-ozonate complex to guard against environmental aggressors.

5. Before closing your eyes at night slather on a renewing lip complex to provide ultimate conditioning while minimizing fine dry lines around the lip line. Sophisticated peptides are a must here as they will condition the skin while stimulating collagen formation.
Get started now with these simple pick-me-up lip tips for the perfect, kissable pout.
