Break out the streamers and party hats, everyone, because we have a birthday to celebrate! This year, the revered skin care brand Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories, or DCL, is turning 40!
If DCL were a person, you know they would be looking as young and vibrant at 40 as they had been at 20. But DCL isn’t a person. It’s a skin care brand known for making its customers enjoy those youthful looks instead.
If you’re new to DCL, here’s why you need to add them to your care routine.
Why DCL Rocks So Much
Anyone can make a lotion that smells nice. DCL knows what really makes a skin care product great: real, honest to goodness scientific discoveries.
Your skin is complex, and the world has nowhere near a complete understanding of how it works and how to make it as healthy and beautiful as possible. That’s why DCL has committed themselves to ongoing research in their Connecticut lab: a commitment that has led them to produce over 7,000 unique formulas. Out of those thousands, only a few have made the cut as the true showstoppers that make up the DCL product line.
Fortunately for all of us, though, DCL hasn’t limited their research-backed products to a single specialty. They have products for the face and for the body as well as the scalp. They have anti-aging products and acne-fighting products. That means we all get to benefit from their brilliance.
The Top DCL Products You Need in Your Cabinet
So you want to add DCL into your skin care routine, but where do you start? There are a few products that the brand is especially well-known for.
Peels and Exfoliants
As we go about our daily lives, our skin takes on damage and aging little by little. Every once in a while, it needs a fresh start. That’s what you get with DCL’s advanced peels.
Take the Multi-Action Penta Peel for instance. It harnesses the power of lactic acid to exfoliate away your dead skin cells and your damaged surface skin.
All the while, the hyaluronic acid in this unique peel is restoring smoothness, softness, and plumpness to your fresh skin, giving you a bright, young look.
Another fan favorite is the G20 Radiance Peel. It’s a simpler formula for those whose skin may be too sensitive for the Multi-Action Penta Peel. Not to worry, though, because it has a similar effect: using it a few times a week can fight back against fine lines and wrinkles and make you look as refreshed as you feel.
Most skin care products focus on your facial skin. After all, our face is what we most often think of when we think of our identity. But your body needs some love, too.
DCL has several high-end products designed to replace every bottle of drugstore lotion you’ve ever tried. One standout is the C Scape High Potency Body Lotion.
The product gets its name from the vitamin C it uses to brighten and revitalize your skin. Of course, it wouldn’t be a powerful body lotion if it didn’t deliver a giant dose of hydration as well. The lotion even uses lactic acid to soften your skin.
Want better skin without adding lotion to your skin? DCL has a product for that, too.
Ditch your regular body wash and swap it out for the T Shampoo for Hair and Body. Not only does this give you livelier, smoother skin with nothing more than your morning shower. And who doesn’t love cutting some of the unnecessary clutter off their shower shelves by trading in your shampoo and body wash for a single great product.
You’ve probably heard this before and you’ll hear it a hundred more times: sun protection is one of the most effective ways to keep your skin looking young and fresh.
DCL, however, knows that it’s difficult to add a whole new step into your routine. That’s why they have a line of products that combine sun care with skin care.
Have dry skin that needs a moisturizer but you don’t want it to clog your pores and rekindle your blemishes? Use the Ultra Light Hydrator SPF 30, perfect for your mornings.
What if you already have some sun damage or natural aging? You can tackle the aging you already have and slow the process in the future at the same time with the Skin Renewal Complex SPF 30.
Seeing DCL’s Results for Yourself
We could sit here all day and tell you how fantastic DCL’s products are, but at the end of the day, there’s only one way for you to know: to try them for yourself. If it’s time to freshen up your skin care routine, look no further than those featured products that can work wonders on nearly anyone’s skin.
