    Answer

    All non-therapists (managers, owners, reception, makeup artist, hair stylists) are welcome to take Dermalogica D.N.A. Day 1 Discovering Tops Sellers. You will get to discover and play with our top selling products by experiencing them on your own skin, which is the perfect way to strengthen your retail knowledge.

    Follow this workshop by attending Dermalogica D.N.A Day 2  Navigating Targeted Systems.

    Navigating Targeted Systems is your guide to learning all about Dermalogica’s advanced retail product systems that directly work to prevent or correct specific skin concerns.
