Step 4: Apply Emulsion Intense Hydrator ๐Ÿ”’

Use If you are NOT planning to go outside into daylight and there is no risk of UV exposure.

You should complete your Morning Skin Care routine with a moisturizer that suits your current skin condition. Apply a small pea sized amount in replace of SPF sunscreen. Following the Cell ID serum step; apply moisturizer into skin by gently press it into your skin. Because this moisturize has an oil base the idea is the press pat onto the skin, do not massage. This will ensure to lock in hydration.

Sunscreen helps protect your skin from further damage. Hydrate+ SPF is the perfect moisturizer + SPF combination designed to offer sun protection while providing hydration to the skin.


We recommend also recommend leveling up to Peptide Rich SPF 50 by Cosmedix for full coverge.




EVENING ROUTINE ๐ŸŒ™


The skin goes through a natural repair and regeneration process at night, know as the circadian rhythm. This is when cell turnover and collagen production tend to be more active. Using deeper more penetrating active ingredients at night can leverage this natural process and maximize their effectiveness.


Step 1: Cleanse with Benefit Clean Gentle Cleanser๐ŸŒฟ


Wet your face with lukewarm water. Apply a small amount of Purity Cleanser to your fingertips and gently massage it onto your skin in circular motions. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat your face dry. Active cleansers are great for evening cleansing to gently exfoliate, unclog pores, remove make up, remove oil build up and help revealing a smoother complexion. For next steps, we recommend adding Purity Clean Exfoliating as an active cleanser in the evening.

Allow each layer to full absorb before applying the next.



Step 4: Apply Retinol: Serum 16 Renewal Serum PM


Retinol is a of vitamin A which can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight. Therefore, you will only use this product during your evening routine when there is no exposure to sunlight.


Start with a small (pea-sized) amount and massage into your face and neck. Avoid delicate eye areas (eyelids and under eyes) If you are new to retinol, you will start with a lower frequency and gradually increase usage as your skin learns to tolerate it. Plan to use every other night. Replace Retinol Step with Moisture Recovery step alternately, every other day. You can apply a thin layer of Rescue+ Intense Hydrating Balm as a nighttime moisturizer on top of retinol.

Take your time building your skin care supply. Remember, skin care doesn't have to be overly complicated or expense. This starter kit will help you learn the basic fundamental steps and your esthetician will help you build from this baseline at your pace and budget. Every month get excited about replenishing your favorite products and introducing additional skin care into the routine.



Remember, skincare results can vary person to person, so be patient and give the product time to work. It may take several weeks to see noticeable results from a new routine. Consistency is KEY. Execute your Morning & Evening Regime every day to achieve best results.



If you experience any irritation or adverse reaction, discontinue use and contact your esthetician. We may need to introduce serums gradually as we rebuild the skin barrier and avoid overloading the skin.
