What the heck do I do with this stuff?
So you like what you see and you're ready to start loving your skin, but your a bit confused about what you need and how you use it all. No problem. Let's get started.
First, for the more basic routine, the following is the bare minimum routine that you should follow daily for optimal results. In reality, it takes less than five minutes and it goes a little something like this:
BASIC SKINCARE REGIMEN
Step 1: Cleanse- do this twice daily with the cleanser designed for your skin type. If you aren't sure which one that is, we are happy to help!
Step 2: Balance and Tone- this should follow every time you cleanse. It helps to pH balance your skin and can also remove residue and dirt that was left behind after cleansing. It also helps to clear dead skin and minimize pores. Choose the toner that best suites your skin type
Step 3: Moisturize- even oily skin needs a balance of moisture so it's best to not skip this step. Our moisturizers also contain antioxidants to help protect your skin throughout the day and to reduce the look of lines and wrinkles. Don't skip it!
Now...for you product junkies like us with specific skin problems, this is the best daily routine to adopt. This may take up more room in the bathroom, but only takes a few seconds longer than a basic program.
BEST SKINCARE REGIMEN
For optimal results:
Step 1: Cleanse- follow the same instructions as listed above
Step 2: Twice weekly use a facial scrub or mask
Step 3: Balance and Tone- follow the same instructions as listed above
Step 4: Apply treatment serums or facial oils. Serums come before oils if you are doing both.Oily skins should use oil overnight only. Acne treatments also go here.
Step 5: Apply light moisture for day or a heavier moisturizer or overnight cream before bed. This should always be the last step as moisturizer create a barrier over the skin and can prevent actives from reaching your pores.
