Home storage habits can affect how well your skin care products work on your skin. High-quality skin care in airless pumps and tubes can remain highly-effective for several years when stored away from heat. But every product becomes vulnerable to air, temperature and bacteria as soon as it is opened.
To get the maximum benefit and life out of your Dermalogica products, follow these storage tips from our professional skin therapists:
keep your "foliants" out of the shower
If water gets inside the container of our popular powder exfoliants, it can cause clumping and activate ingredients too early, reducing effectiveness on the skin.
spf products should be in the shade
Hot temperatures and prolonged, direct sunlight can shorten product life and decrease the effectiveness of active ingredients such as those in sunscreens.
take your products out of the car
Hot cars are bad for all products, but they can completely melt (aka ruin) products such as lip products. Once melted, a product should not be used, even if cooled and solidified. Make sure you take your travel minis and other products with you when you leave the car.
steer clear of the window sill
Store products in cool, dark places to preserve the integrity of their ingredients. The refrigerator is great for toners and masques because it adds a more refreshing, cooling effect! Other great places are a cabinet, a cosmetic case or on a dark. shelf.
