Setting its skincare sights on health and care, Dermalogica created a signature routine for its show partners at MBFWA 2019. To soothe the rigours of Fashion Week for the models, Dermalogica designed a custom UltraCalming FaceFit (a signature 10-minute express treatment) to soothe and refresh models’ skin before they hit the runway. Skin is this year’s runway hero with makeup taking a backseat, and a dewy complexion stealing the show for Australia’s fashion new guard, Dermalogica’s partners, Matteau, Hansen & Gretel and Christopher Esber (while foundation is removed from the equation altogether).
Dermalogica’s Education Manager and MBFW Skin Director, Emma Hobson, discusses her approach to soothing the rigours of backstage beauty: “This week, we’re prepping the models’ skin for the runway. This year, the look is all about ‘clean’, healthy, glowing skin to complement the clothing and really let it shine. Understanding skin as well as the challenges models have, especially at Fashion Week. We know the skin can become sensitised very easily. So we designed a Dermalogica FaceFit treatment based around our UltraCalming range of products, which will instantly reduce redness and sensitisation, boost hydration, and increase vitality and glow”.
