CLARIFY by Cosmedix

Congratulations on taking the first step to a new skin care regimen.


The Even Skin Starter Kit by COSMEDIX Skin Care is the perfect choice to improve the appearance oily, blemish-prone skin.


MORNING ROUTINE ☀️


Step 1: Cleanse with Clarify Salicylic Acid Foaming Cleanser 🌿


Wet your face with lukewarm water. Apply a small amount of Clarify Salicylic Acid Cleanser to your fingertips and gently massage it onto your skin in circular motions. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat your face dry. You can use morning and night without stripping the skin however once oil production is regulated we recommend adding Benefit Clean Gentle Cleanser for morning use and continuing Clarify Salicylic Acid Cleanser as an active evening cleanser. We do NOT recommend use of this product or any product containing Salicylic Acid if you are pregnant or lactating.



Step 2: Benefit Toner 🌱 (NOT included in Kit, Available for purchase a la carte)


Apply Benefit Antioxidant Toner to balance your skin's pH levels and tighten pores. Use after cleansing. Moisten a cotton pad with the product and swipe it over your face and neck. Avoid the eye area. Allow it to dry before applying the next product!


This step can help balance your skin's pH and enhance the absorption your serum application.



Step 3: Apply Clarity Skin-Clarifying Serum ✨


Dispense a small (pea sized) amount of the Clarity Serum onto your fingertips. Gently massage the serum into your skin using upwards and outwards motions. Pay particular attention to areas with hyperpigmentation or uneven skin tone. Allow serum to fully absorb into your skin before applying any other products. This may take a minute or two.



Step 4: Apply Shineless Oil Free Moisturizer

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 Clarity Serum step; apply moisturizer into skin by gently press it into your skin. This will ensure to lock in hydration.



OR > ALTERNATIVE TO SHINELESS


Step 4: Apply Hydrate+ SPF (NOT included in Kit, Available for purchase a la carte)


Highly Recommended: If you are leaving out the house during daylight hours you will need environmental protection from pollution and sun exposure. 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. You can use Hydrate+ in replace of Shineless however Hydrate+ moisturizer is not oil free.


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





EVENING ROUTINE 🌙


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 Clarify Salicylic Acid Foaming Cleanser 🌿

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.

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.



If you have not already scheduled your follow up appointment or would like to schedule a Skin Consultation you may book your next visit to STEAM Beauty & Wellness Spa using our 24/7 Online Booking portal
