TREATMENT PREP by Cosmedix

Updated: Sep 22

Congratulations on taking the first step to a new skin care regimen. The Treatment Prep Kit by COSMEDIX Skin Care is the perfect choice to help prepare skin for the professional aesthetician treatments you will receive at your next visit.



MORNING DAILY ROUTINE โ˜€๏ธ Step 1: Cleanse with Purity Clean Exfoliation Cleanser ๐ŸŒฟ 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. You can use morning and night without stripping the skin. After treatment your aesthetician may recommend adding a gentle cleanser for morning use and an active cleanser in the evening.


FYI: Purity cleanser offers effective cleansing without the traditional foaming or bubbly experience often associated with other cleansers (More bubbles does not mean cleaner). Instead, it operates through an emulsifying and lathering action, which means it creates a creamy texture allowing the cleanser to surround and trap oil and debris, making it easier to rinse away with water without stripping the skin of it's natural oils or leaving residue on the skin.

Step 2: Benefit Toner ๐ŸŒฑ (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 Simply Brilliant Brightening Serum โœจ Dispense a small (pea sized) amount of the 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 Hydrate+ SPF REQUIRED: If you are leaving out the house during daylight hours you will need environmental protection from pollution and sun exposure. During the daytime, it's crucial to follow up with a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 or above. Sunscreen helps protect your skin from further damage and prevents the dark spots from worsening due to UV exposure. We recommend leveling up to Peptide Rich SPF 50 by Cosmedix 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 Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser ๐ŸŒฟ 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. Step 2: Benefit Toner ๐ŸŒฑ (This product is NOT included in Kit, Available for purchase a la carte) Apply Benefit Balance 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: Serum - Water Based ๐Ÿ’ฆ (NOT included in Kit, Available for purchase a la carte)

Deliver targeted nutrients and antioxidants to your skin with a lightweight serum. Your aesthetician will help you choose one that addresses your specific concerns, whether it's hydration, nourishing, soothing or firming. Layer multiple serums for deeper penetration.


Step 4: Apply Retinol: Define Age-Defying Treatment with Hydroxy Acids & Retinol 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 nighttime moisturizer on top of retinol.

Step 5: Every Day Moisturizer


Ask your esthetician to recommend a daily moisturizer you can you use for AM or PM to lock in hydration with a moisturizer that suits your current skin condition.

Step 6: Moisture Recovery Mask ๐Ÿ’งwith Rescue+ Intense Hydrating Balm & Mask Use this product every other day as an alternate to Retinol. This product can be used for extra hydration or as an overnight mask. Apply a pea sized amount to clean dry skin. Apply as a Mask by applying a thick layer and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly or wear overnight! Step 7: Eye Cream ๐Ÿ‘ Apply a nourishing eye cream to the delicate skin around your eyes.

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.
