STEP 1: CLEANSE
The key to results with any skincare product is akin to painting. You must first clean and “prime” the surface so that no debris or build-up interferes with a smooth and lasting application.
OPTION 1: VITALITY CLEANSING MILK and LOTION (TONER)
Both contain refreshing grapefruit extract. A “milk” simply designates an emulsion rather than a gel that would be recommended for oily skin. Cleansing milks dissolve debris and makeup without stripping the skin of it’s natural oils. Toners, applied with a cotton round, remove every last trace of dirt, oil or makeup and prepare or “prime” the skin for the next step.
ADD-ON: Sothys’ Eye and Lip Makeup Removing Fluide is gentle yet effective enough to remove waterproof makeup. Mallow extract softens with no greasy residue for this delicate area.
OPTION 2: MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER
More recently introduced to the US, micellar waters have been widely used in Europe for a very long time. For a quick 2-in-1 face and eye makeup cleansing routine, the little micellar cleansing clusters dissolve eye and facial makeup or sunscreen by applying with a cotton round.
STEP 2: DAILY ANTIOXIDANT ULTRA C DERMOBOOSTER
This lipid soluble Vitamin C is the ultimate free-radical scavenger to target signs of skin aging and hyperpigmentation. You don’t skip your daily body’s vitamins, why would you skip your facial skin’s daily dose? Apply one pump onto clean skin before your cream.
STEP 3: SKIN SPECIFIC SERUM HYDRA 3HA INTENSIVE HYDRATING SERUM
The ultimate “lubricator”, Hyaluronic Acid hydrates our eyes and joints. And 50% of the hyaluronic acid in our bodies resides in the skin. As we age, these levels decrease, leading to drier skin and the appearance of deeper lines. Normal/Combination skin “plumps” with daily application of this serum, reactivating the skin’s “hydric” (moisture) memory. And serums are formulated with much smaller molecular weights that penetrate deeply to deliver their concentrated actives.
STEP 4: MOISTURIZER DAY: HYDRA 3HA YOUTH CREAM NIGHT: NOCTUELLE
Prevent the slow depletion of hyaluronic acid in the skin with this day cream which not only creates a protective film to prevent moisture loss but also stimulates moisture retention over time. At night, Noctuelle detoxifies daily environmental damage with a polyphenol complex while stabilized Vitamin C and , Nasturtium extract stimulate cellular activity.
