Apply Your Skincare the Professional Way: Utilizing Layering Technique
“A technique which maximizes the absorption and effectiveness of products”
A layering technique is an application method. This method is used when applying or layering your skincare products one after another in a specific order. This technique is used by skincare professionals in order to maximize the absorption and effectiveness of each product, while promoting hydration and overall radiance of the skin. The following are steps used to master the layering technique. Used in order to ensure the highest performance from your skincare products.
*The layering technique must be performed on perfectly cleansed skin. As a rule, the lightest or least viscous formulas should be applied first. Thinner compounds will be absorbed more quickly into the skin. The richer or thicker formulas should be applied last. Also, please allow from 30 seconds to a minute between each step to ensure complete penetration of the product into the skin.
STEP 1: CLEANSE THE SKIN
Use our Purifying Foaming Cleanser to clean your face, neck and eyelids. If you wear makeup, it is important to double cleanse your skin. Our cleanser is a sulphate-free foaming cleanser that gently cleanses and removes impurities from the skin.
STEP 2: EXFOLIATION (ONCE OR TWICE A WEEK)
STEP 3: BALANCE pH
Since water has a pH of 7 and your skin has a physiological pH of 5.5, it is important to rebalance the pH of your skin after cleansing. Use our Soothing Toner, which is alcohol-free with moisturizing and antioxidant ingredients.
STEP 4: APPLICATION OF SERUMS
STEP 5: APPLICATION OF AN OIL
Our Regenerating Age-Defying Oil is comprised of a synergy of nourishing and restorative organic vegetal oils. These assist in regenerating the skin’s protective barrier and restore its hydration. This product is rich in soothing, antioxidant and restructuring ingredients. The application improves the flexibility and elasticity of the skin bringing more comfort and a feeling of well-being.
STEP 6: HYDRATION
STEP 7: SUN PROTECTION (DAY TIME)
Finish by applying sunscreen to fight against premature aging during the day. It will act on the surface of the skin and form a protective barrier against UVA and UVB rays as well as pollution. Apply this protection as the last step of your layering technique for the best results.
