Skin Scan

On our last shopping trip before we head back to our respective colleges, Harrods Girl and I went to a Facial/Spa Salon to look at Dermalogica, the skin care brand that sells exclusively at skincare salons such as the one we went to. There, we filled in a survey and had a free skin care consultation, which included a free face scan. The face scanner basically looks at your skin under ultra violet light. And it gives a very accurate picture of what your skin condition is really like. It is able to to reveal pigmentation, dehydration, sensitivity, sun damage, congestion and dead skin cells.

Basically, you just stick your head under the clothe and into the box. Inside there is a mirror for you to see your own reflection under ultra violet light and a hole opposite so the expert can take a look as well and explain what everything means. If you have near perfect skin, I am assuming that you would look like this lady below.
But in reality it is not such a pretty experience. We are no expert, but from our combined experience, we do know that patches of purple means dry skin and white means dead skin (not make-up, this machine goes beyond the surface of the skin, so one doesn't need to remove make-up to have a face scan-super convenient!).

Anyways, even though it wasn't a very pleasent experience (reality often isn't), we highly recommend a face scan, because it really reveals all the problem areas of the skin one has neglected or was unaware of. Better late then never right?

anonymous: I'm sorry, I haven't tried it anywhere in Chicago. But you might want to look up beauty salons that sell Dermalogica. It seems to be part of the process they use for Dermalogica customers. Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

It was indeed quite a horrifying thing to look at: your own face with random blobs of purple, brown and white. Obviously my skin needs help!

I just bought a set of Dermalogica products in travel kit size yesterday so I can try it out. Will let you know if I like it after I test it out.

anonymous: not sure if you'll get this, but just wanted to let you know that at SAKS in Chicago (or NY), you can get a similar free face scan at the SKII counter.

You can go to a salon that provides Dermalogica Face mapping. There is a list of Dermalogica salons at www.dermalogica.com. I go to go to Color Nation Salon in Cleveland.

I used to bring my daughters to see ordinary GPs after all those creams and lotions from the pharmacies failed to ease their "sufferings"...really bad acne, pimples, zits. Very volcano-like (mini-volcanoes!). Their self-confidence, I must say, was really gone. Then a friend suggested, why not a Dermatologist. And I said...what's that? Of course..., skin specialist. You know, within 2 weeks their complexion started to clear. Looking at them now, you wouldn't imagine they were once..."ugly ducklings." Nothing beats a specialist...I say.
