Not all of us are born knowing exactly which skincare product should be applied first. And with a dizzying amount of information (and opinions) on the Internet, it’s oftentimes overwhelming to figure out.
We breakdown the 7 phases of beauty and their correct order, as well as the products to use for each step.
Morning and evening cleansing promotes a clear, even complexion by removing dirt, pollution, and unbalanced oils in order to support and protect the delicate acid mantle balance.
Twice daily skin nourishment is fundamental to cell regeneration, protection, and optimal skin health. Antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, amino and fatty acids, and dense phytonutrients are bioavailable in pure, organic plants and herbs that support effective skin function and slow skin deterioration.
Minimum twice daily skin hydration is crucial for maximum effectiveness in all other phases of skincare, creating an essential delivery system for nutrients and actives to penetrate and benefit the skin. Continual hydration supports cell health and circulation but also enhances moisturizers for plump, firm skin.
The twice-daily application supports circulation, nourishment, and protection from dehydration (and drying due to cold temperatures) by binding surface skin cells and reinforcing the lipid barrier. Properly sealing in hydration maintains a soft, plump, and bright complexion. Serums are perfect for regenerating your skin.
Daily environmental protection is essential to effective skincare. Nutrient-dense moisturizers that contain rich plant antioxidants help offset skin damage from pollution, while Broad Spectrum, high SPF coverage with natural, non-nano Zinc Oxide sunscreen protects skin cells from free radical damage.
6. Exfoliate (to be done after cleansing)
Twice weekly exfoliation removes unwanted dull & dead cells, reveals healthy new skin, and stimulates regeneration. Proper exfoliation is also key to boosting the effectiveness of all other skincare products and techniques.
7. Activate (to be done 1-2 times a week)
Weekly skin activation treatments stimulate and accelerate the body’s own natural healing process, restoring circulation, relieving stagnation, and clearing impurities to support firm skin and a toned, bright complexion.
