Step 1: Cleanse – Customize your cleanser to your skin type.
– Combination/Oily Skin Recommendations: Salicylic Face & Body Wash, 10% Glycolic Moisturizing Cleanser, Green Tea Foaming Cleanser
– Normal/Dry Skin Recommendations: Chamomile or Lavender Creamy Cleanser, Green Tea Fortified Cleanser, Gentle Antioxidant Soothing Cleanser
– Acne Prone Skin Recommendations: 5% BP Wash, 10% Benzaderm Wash (for body)
Step 2: Exfoliate – An essential step to remove the top layer of dead skin cells while generating collagen.
– Combination/Oily Skin Recommendations: Glycolic/Salicylic Pads, Retinol x5 Pads, Dual Action Toner, 2% Salicylic Exfoliator, Glycolic Pads (10% or 20%)
– Normal/Dry Skin Recommendations: Glycolic Gel (7.5% or 10%), Retinol Smoothing Serum, Multi-Complex Night Crème, AHA Marine Moisture Crème, Papaya Mint Scrub
Step 3: Moisturize – Antioxidants are particularly important to have in your moisturizer, including Vitamin C, Vitamin E and green tea.
– Topical antioxidants provide: UVA/UVB protection, stimulate collagen production, alleviate inflammation and protect against free radical damage.
– If you currently have a moisturizer that you like, but it doesn’t contain the
antioxidants you want… you can use additional products in your routine, such as our Acai Moisturizing Mist or Triple Antioxidant Crème
– If you need a new moisturizer, we recommend: Triple Antioxidant Crème, 20% Vita C Gel, Ultra Benefits or Fortified Moisturizer
Step 4: SPF – The #1 cause of wrinkles is sun damage. We have a variety of physical and chemical sunscreens, moisturizers and makeup with SPF protection for you to choose from and test out at all 3 of our locations.
– Look for a broad spectrum sunscreen that protects against UVB and UVA radiation.
– Use SPF 15 or higher every day over your moisturizer and SPF 30 or higher for extended outdoor activity.
