The 10 Skincare Commandments

  1. Cleanse

    Cleanse your face EVERY SINGLE NIGHT to remove dirt, oil, makeup and debris that you have collected in your pores throughout the day.

  2. Prevention

    Use SPF, SPF, and SPF every day for the rest of your life! Sun is the skin’s worst enemy and is the #1 cause of aging our appearance! At least a daily sunscreen of 15 preferably higher 30+ especially for outdoor activity.

  3. h2>Eye CreamUse EYE CREAM a.m./p.m. to treat the delicate tissue around the eye area that is aging us the fastest and gets the most abuse with expressions, squinting and facial movement.
  4. Treatments

    Antioxidants, serums, retinoids, all fight free radicals the other aging culprits and strengthen and replace collagen. Always apply treatments BEFORE moisturizer and SPF.

  5. Moisturizer

    The true fountain of YOUTH! Treat premature aging and preserve the skin! Knowing your own skin type will better direct you into the strength and type of moisturizer your skin best needs.

  6. Exfoliate

    EXFOLIATE at least once to twice a week! This will take off the dull outer layer of skin giving you a healthier glow. It will also help fade discoloration and dislodge stubborn dead skin cells for clearer, brighter skin as well as allowing the better absorption of all your anti-aging products.

  7. Anti-Aging

    Do a once a month “overhaul” with a glycolic peel, microdermabrasion or mask that will work to increase cell turnover and stimulate new collagen to reduce sagging and wrinkles.

  8. Lifestyle

    LIFESTYLE – Nutrition, Exercise, Sleep, Reduce Stress, Avoid Unprotected Sun Exposure , NO Smoking, Limit Alcohol

  9. Change

    CHANGE products season to season due to so many factors that can cause skin to act up.

  10. More

    MORE is NOT always better! Use only the recommended product amounts since they are highly concentrated and you can get too much of a good thing causing you sensitivity or skin issues that you don’t truly have.
