Skin Care Regime… Where do I begin…

Steps . . . 1, 2, 3!

So you know what your skin needs help with now what? You need to start with a basic skincare regimen. Here is what we recommend twice a day (morning and night).


Step 1 - Cleanse

Washing your face with a cleanser morning and night is highly recommended. This helps remove impurities, cleanses the pores, helps prevent breakouts, and prepares the skin for step 2 and 3. If you have dry skin, you can skip this step in the morning and go straight to step 2.


Step 2 - Hydrate

Hydration is such an important part of any skincare routine. Skin needs both water and good oils to stay healthy and work optimally. Skipping a hydrating step can leave your skin feeling dry which can lead to flakiness, redness and even break outs. A little known fact is that water also travels deeper into the skin then oils, so including a hydrating step can really make a difference in your skin. We use our alcohol free toners for this step. Both our toners will hydrate your skin but they will also balance your skin's PH after cleansing, will remove any impurities your cleanser might have missed, will tighten the pores (astringent), and then some (each toner can have added benefits such as deep hydration, anti-bacterial properties, increased cell-turnover, etc).

Step 3 - Moisturize

SO important! Whether you have super dry skin or oily skin, moisturization is key to healthy skin. Using a moisturizer everyday will help keep your skin supple and hydrated by sealing in moisture, helping it function better and fight off infections/irritations/premature aging, etc. A good moisturizer will leave your skin feeling healthy and refreshed and will not clog pores. The key point here is to choose the right moisturizer for your skin (use our color coding system to help you decide).


The Extras

What about premature aging and discoloration? What if my skin needs extra love to deal with dryness or breakouts? Well, we have some suggestions for you:

Recommended for all skin types:

Defining Eye Serum

This refreshing eye serum soothes and helps to reduce eye puffiness and dark rings around the eyes. Effective combination of healing peptides, aloe and cucumber help lift, firm, hydrate and increase the skin elasticity for smooth, even tone and texture. This powerful blend helps to protect the skin from environmental toxins and combats the visible sign of premature aging.

Microderm Abrasion Cream

Microderm Abrasion is used in to eliminate the top layer of the epidermus, bringing newer skin to the surface. We recommend weekly use at home as a beneficial part of your skin care routine. This product is ideal to polish off old layer of skin and helping to reduce fine lines and remove imperfections.

Vitamin C Serum

Our premium grade Vitamin C Serum formulation uses all natural ingredients including 20% Vitamin C, 11% Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin B3 to help moisturizer your skin. Our secret is using only natural ingredients and the most stable vitamin C. Our serum is a bit more liquid-y and that is a good thing as our unique formulation absorbs deeper in your skin, drying extra faster to allow you to apply other applications almost immediately. Our Vitamin C Serum will reduce wrinkles, fine lines and assists to repair sun damage and brighten your skin. Your skin will feel smooth, firm and radiant.

Hyperpigmentation Cream

This unique cream illuminates dull and stressed out skin with natural ingredients which help in minimizing pigmentation marks such as brown skin patches, refines skin tone, and diminishes blemishes. The formula is non greasy and non-oily and can be used as a moisturizer too, so you do not need to use multiple creams.

Overnight Moisturizers

We make day and nighttime moisturizers that we recommend alternating every day. Our day creams are lighter while our night cream or serum are more potent and meant to work overnight. For all skin types we recommend our Reviving day cream during the day and overnight we recommend your choice of our Lift and Firming Cream, Argan Oil or Age Defying Cream. If you have a mixture of skincare issue we can recommend a mix and match of products.

Lift and Firming Cream

This outstanding anti-aging moisturizer has an effective combination of grape seed, sunflower, sweet almond and shea butter that give the performance of a luxurious cream and natural olive based squalene, extracts of gingko biloba, olive leaf, blended with white, green and red teas which are highly effective in improving the elasticity and firmness of the skin. Leaves the skin smooth and youthful in appearance.

100% Argan Oil

Our 100% natural, 100% organic, pure argan oil is harvested and cold pressed from the nut of the argan tree. Argan oil is a multi-tasking miracle moisturizer that's organically grown and naturally chemical-free. As one of the rarest oils in the world, it has earned the nickname, "liquid gold." It's rich in high concentrations of vitamins, minerals and powerful anti-oxidants. Vitamin E and essential fatty acids are argan oil benefits that help hydrate and soften your hair, face, body, nails and everything in between.

Mixing and Matching.

What if I have "combination" skin or if I fit into more than 1 category? If this is the case, we recommend that you mix and match from our different collections to target each specific issue.
For instance, if you have dry skin and are breakout prone, you might want to try our Daily Essential Hydrating Cleanser to avoid over drying your skin, and the Problem Solving Toner to target your breakouts. The Reviving Day Cream is lighter weight oil is preferred for break out prone skin and the Problem Solver Hydrator can help prevent the breakouts. At night though, you could use Argan Oil to keep your skin properly moisturized and prevent dryness. On a weekly basis, you could steam and mask (or spot mask) use our Zit Zapper roller as spot treatment as needed and also on a weekly basis use our Microderm Abrasion.

Another example. What if you have dry mature skin with sun damage? For the cleanser you might want Daily Essential Hydrating Cleanser with the Daily Essential Hydrating Toner to help improve elasticity and for optimal hydration. As a day time moisturizer, you could use Hyperpigmentation Cream in the daytime, and the Age Defying Cream at night. For treatments, you could use the Defining Eye Serum, Vitamin C Serum and mask with Strawberry Apple Banana Fruit Mask.

Still Confused?

What is key is to listen to your skin. You may want to start by giving your skin a few days "off" by going product free. How you skin reacts will tell you a lot about what it likes and dislikes!
When trying to figure out what our skin needs and introducing new products, we recommend introducing one new variable at a time. That way you can tell if the new product is having the desired effect after a few days.
