Are we keeping up with our homecare regimen? This may actually be the best time to focus and give your skin the full attention it needs.
Many of us are now 2 months behind on our monthly facial schedule- ouch! The good news: masks that keep us all safe also keep the lower half of our faces protected from sun-damage. That leaves the upper half to continue to protect with Colorescience Total Eye SPF35 for the delicate eye contour and SPF50 Mineral Face Shield in Regular or the new Glow version (see video below) read physical Zinc and Titanium Dioxide for the forehead and of course the decollete!
Since “Peel Season” (Spring) came and went without enjoying your peel series, you can still offer yourself a mini home peel weekly, combined with the right mask, to achieve noticeable results.
Let me recommend some home options for EXFOLIATON + INTENSIVE MASKS to help maintain that lovely skin, until I have a chance to personally attend to it for you 😉
Concern: Your skin may be looking dull or lackluster and in need of radiance through cell turnover and regeneration.
1.Exfoliating Multi Acid Pads (Jan Marini) ONCE/WEEK. These come 30 pads per jar, giving you 7 months of weekly homecare peels. Though not the 40% solution I offer in-salon, the 12% acid cocktail will SHAKE, not just stir up your regimen!
Apply a pad over clean skin and let activate for 10 min (tingle tingle!) Wash off.
2.Luminate Mask (Jan Marini) with a brightening complex to also help with dark spots (aka hyperpigmentation).
Follow above Multi Acid Peel with thin application of this mask, leave on 10-15 min. Wash off and apply serum and cream, et voila!
Concern: Dry, Sensitive Skin that can’t handle strong acids but needs a boost of hydration and light exfoliation.
1.SOTHYS Lactic Acid Daily Exfoliator. This alpha hydroxyl acid is gentler than most (and you know the French prefer gentle care) and ideal even for sensitive skin. Just because it’s sensitive doesn’t mean it won’t benefit from dissolving that dead, dry layer of skin to reveal brightness.
2.SOTHYS Hydra-Smoothing Mask with Boletus mushroom extract and hyaluronic acid for intense skin hydration.
