Our customer experience team is asked every day how best to care for skin prone to blemishes at any age. Fortunately, finding a calming, balancing routine is easier than you think.
Outbreaks mostly occur with oily or dry skin. Outbreaks occur with oily skin because the skin forms overproduced oils that can be trapped in hair follicles and clogged pores together with dead skin cells and bacteria. The opposite is the case with dry skin, where oils are underproduced and the skin becomes vulnerable without a protective barrier (or acid protective layer).
When it comes to the soothing of all sensitive skin types, we recommend that you limit your routine to the essentials and start with a caring daily cleansing. Then when your skin feels ready for these gentle next steps, try our proven routine for flawless, combination skin and oily skin.
For oily or combination skin, we recommend starting with a dash rice plant & rosemary BioAffinity Tonic . The natural antioxidants in rosemary water help clean and balance clogged skin and oily T-zones. If you leave the skin moist after applying a tonic, the next products in your routine can easily be absorbed by the skin.
For dry skin, replace the rice plant and the rosemary tonic with one of our lotus and orange blossoms .
Then moisten the skin with Geranium & Thistle Rebalancing Day Cream. Safflower oil helps to mattify the skin and reduce the appearance of large pores.
First remove makeup and SPF with the Light Work Rosehip Cleansing Oil. Even oily skin types should not shy away from this step. Oils adhere to oils – so using a cleansing oil helps remove the last traces of stubborn makeup and waterproof makeup from the skin without peeling them off or causing irritation.
First dab the face dry, then thoroughly clean twice with Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser. It is important that you massage it into dry skin because the nourishing oils slide off the damp skin instead of removing dirt or residues from the skin.
Apply two to three consecutive nights a week Copaiba & Zinc Perfect Balance Blemish Serum . It gently soothes redness, inflammation and bacteria without drying out the stain or causing irritation.
On nights when you are not using serum, massage Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil into your skin before bed. The regenerative sterols relieve inflammation that surrounds the blemish and promote healing. A facial oil suitable for all skin types is an important step in caring for the skin when the skin is free of breakouts.
Once or twice a week:
Treat your skin to our Copaiba Deep Cleanse AHA mask – the gentle fruit acids on the inside loosen dead skin cells and pull out impurities.
Add a peel to your evening cleansing program by applying Kukui & Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator to dry skin after cleansing. Then continue with your tonic plus serum or facial oil.
