Successful outcomes on your road to optimal skin health is 20% what your esthetician does to your skin during a treatment and 80% what you do at home to care for it on a daily basis. Professional skin treatments are usually spaced apart every 2-8 weeks based on a person's age, skin condition, and how fast results are expected to be noticeable. Home regimens are designed to be followed twice daily and should be adjusted as needed. To keep up with your skin health between your appointments you can use the following protocol as your guide. Contact Cindy to customize your product formulas and instructions. Scroll down for some "DIY Facial Kit" options.
Apply PRECLEANSE with dry fingers to a dry face and neck to dissolve surface debris. Add water to emusify before removing with a warm, wet washcloth.
Dispense a small amount of CLEANSER appropriate for skin type, mix with a little water, and massage all over (avoid eyes). Remove with warm, wet washcloth.
Using the EXFOLIANT of your choice, use as directed on the package.
Apply generous layer of a MASQUE. A treatment serum mixed in or applied underneath will magnify benefits. Use as directed on tube and remove with a warm, wet washcloth. This is the last product that will be removed.
Spray face and neck with TONER. No need to let dry before next step, in fact, it's usually best to apply a serum while skin is still damp.
Apply a treatment SERUM and/or topical medication as directed. Which serum depends on desired benefits.
Apply rice-grain sized amount of EYE CREAM under eyes, on brow bone, and in crow's feet area.
Apply a thin layer of MOISTURIZER to face and neck.
If your moisturizer doesn't contain SUNSCREEN, apply a sun protection product if during daylight hours.
Apply a moisturizing LIP BALM.
To do your own Lip Renewal, Eye Renewal, or Hand Renewal, request instructions. Please note that you won't do all steps twice every day; exfoliants and masques should be used only as often as directed. Your day and night regimens may vary slightly.
