Market Watch: Dermalogica

Zandile Blay

Commitment -- across all categories -- has always been a personal challenge. My favorite fashion designers? Depends on the sample sale. My favorite movie? Depends on what's out. My favorite restaurant? Depends on who is paying. Now, I've finally found a favorite which remains so no matter my mood, memory or budget: Dermalogica. Specifically, Dermalogica in SoHo. Since stumbling upon this haven, nestled between boutiques like Ted Baker, Vivienne Tam and Kate Spade, I've morphed into a faithful client. My monthly appointments are never missed and always supplemented by a quick stop to grab cleansers and toners in between.

So what transformed this commitment-phobe to a commitment freak? Great skin. Period.Their signature Face Mapping technique ensures that your custom facial will trump any you've ever had. The in-house products used by Dermalogica's licensed professionals incorporate only the best ingredients and are thoroughly researched before hitting stores.

But don't take my word for it. You are welcom to pop in yourself at any point for complimentary Face Mapping where the technicians examine your skin to craft a dedicated beauty cleansing regime based on your skin's type and history. Armed with this new knowledge, you can settle into a spa chair for a quick 20 minute service to tackle anything from dry skin to parched lips. The services cater to both men and women and can extend to an hour for Dermalogica's exclusive core facial. No matter which option you choose, you will emerge with renewed skin -- and a new long term relationship with a spa.
