I was so excited to be invited by beautyheaven to attend the exclusive Dermalogica Face Mapping Skin Analysis event at the end of last month.
Possibly too excited! I arrived at the Dermalogica Headquarters in Crows Nest, Sydney in the dark. Inside Dermalogica was all beautifully lit up and looked so inviting. I strode forwards to go through the entrance only to smack bang and I mean literally “SMACK BANG” walk straight into a glass wall!
The entrance door was actually one glass panel to my right! I don’t know what hurt more, my acute embarrassment or my broken nose which was diagnosed by the specialist the next day!!!!
It could have been worse – beautyheaven was already filming inside. Luckily the camera was not pointed in my direction at the time!!!! Although looking back on it now, and no longer being in pain, I can laugh about it. It probably would have made a very funny blooper video!
Anyway, enough about me and my out of character klutziness, I’m sure what you really want to know about is Dermalogica Face Mapping and the event, not my nose, so here goes!
Once safely inside we were warmly welcomed by Dermalogica Manager, Emma Hobson. Emma explained that Face Mapping is a skin analysis technique developed by Dermalogica using both Western and also traditional Chinese face mapping skin analysis techniques.
Dermalogica Face Mapping
Following a verbal consultation regarding our skin concerns, current skin care regime, lifestyle and sun history, the process of Dermalogica Face Mapping involves dividing our face into 14 distinct zones and then having the Dermalogica therapist, wearing magnifying glasses head gear with a light attached, conduct a close examination of our skin. The Dermalogica therapist uses touch and the magnified image of our skin to analyse our skin’s current state and its needs.

Prior to my Face Mapping I also had my skin analysed by Dermalogica therapist Charlotte, using the Dermalogica Skin Scanner. This Dermalogica skin analysis process is so effective. It involved placing my head under the cover of the skin scanner which then enabled Charlotte to examine my skin under the specialised light.
I then had the moisture levels of my skin read using this little gizmo. The ideal levels are 60. My readings were 50.8 near my eyes and 40.5 lower down on my cheek. I was pleasantly surprised my readings weren’t even lower, given the results of the Skin Scanner.
