DIRECTIONS AND INSPIRATION TO GET THE MOST OUT OF OUR SKINCARE PRODUCTS
Check out the blog here for more derma rolling details.
*All of our products are very nutrient dense, as every ingredient serves a purpose. There are no fillers, and no water. As with any rich formulation, very little is needed!
STEP 1: CLEANSE with C5
Gently roll the bottle to stir up jojoba exfoliating beads. Put a small amount of the cleansing oil in your palm. Using both hands work on entire face in small circular motions while avoiding your eyes. Rinse with warm water, and towel dry.
WHY? Proper cleansing is vital to set the stage for healthy skin. Your skin is exposed to various environmental hazards, not to mention possible excess oil production, dirt, or residual makeup. Like attracts like, so by using an oil based cleanser, you will help attract oil away from your skin, making it the perfect cleanser for all skin types. This will cleanse your skin of toxins and free radicals that accelerate skin cell damage. Take the time to set a routine up that allows for cleansing at the end of your day, and your skin will love you for it!
STEP 2: DERMA ROLLING (AKA Collagen Induction Therapy)
Prepare roller with isopropyl alcohol spray bottle included in kit. Starting from your chest, up to your neck, to your face and using even pressure, roll derma roller 3 directions; vertically, horizontally, and diagonally. Lift up after each roll. Avoid eye socket areas. Do not roll over any open blemish, cut, scrape, etc. Rinse derma roller under hot water, and disinfect with 70% isopropyl alcohol. Use .25mm roller only every other day. Use .5mm roller only 1 time per week. Do not share rollers.
WHY? Derma rolling is an effective technique to help treat scars, acne scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles. (Click here for medical reference) The small handheld roller has tiny titanium needles that create tiny indents in the epidermis layer. This allows for the nutrient rich products to reach deeper beneath your skin. Over time, this will promote new elastin and collagen growth, and a reduction in fine lines, and open pores. Unlike other skincare treatments, derma rolling does not require down time, or increase sensitivity to the sun, and it is suitable for all skin types.
The rollers we use are .25mm and .5mm, and do not puncture through the skin, and do not cause bleeding. There are derma rollers with larger needles, but we recommend having that done by a dermatologist, or licensed Esthetician.
STEP 3: TONE with T5
Gently roll bottle before use to incorporate ingredients. Spray toner over entire chest, neck, and face while avoiding your eyes. Another option would be to use a cotton pad or cotton ball to evenly distribute the toner. Leave face wet with toner while applying eye cream and serum in the next two steps, to aid in the delivery of the products deep within the skin.
WHY? Toning is meant to hydrate and balance the ph of your skin, and to tighten your pores. This makes the skin tighter, and smoother. A little goes a long way!
STEP 4: DEPUFF AND AWAKEN WITH E7 EYE CREAM
Apply a small amount under your eyes, smile lines, pucker lines, and any other fine lines. To avoid bacteria in your product, use only dry and clean fingers.
WHY? E7 is loaded with vitamins, antioxidants, and nutrients that will fight off the free radicals that cause our skin to age. It also will minimize fine lines, lighten scars, tighten pores, and reduce puffiness leaving you with healthy and beautiful skin.
STEP 5: NOURISH WITH S5 OR S3 SERUM
Be sure to apply on top of moist skin, as that will be 10 times more permeable than on dry skin. Using the dropper bottle, start with just a few drops at a time, using your fingers to apply starting on your chest, upwards through your neck, and face while avoiding your eyes. Resist the temptation to continually massage it in, and allow it to naturally absorb into your skin.
WHY? S5 is an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-oxidant serum rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin E, essential fatty acids that will heal, nourish, and protect your skin.
STEP 6: MOISTURIZE WITH M6 OR M5
Warm a small amount of moisturizer with your hands and cover entire chest, neck, and face. To avoid bacteria in your product, use only dry and clean fingers.
Why? Using this powerhouse moisturizer will seal in the products with a protective layer, and nourish your skin with only the finest ingredients. This will leave your skin hydrated, soft, and smooth.
Step 1: Rinse
Rinse face with warm water, and towel dry.
Step 2: Tone with T5
Gently roll bottle to incorporate ingredients. Lightly spray toner onto face, or spread using a cotton pad.
Step 3: Moisturize with M6 OR M5
Using a dime size amount, warm between your hands and apply evenly to chest, neck, and face.
