Jeanette’s Guide to Beautiful Skin…
Whether you are transitioning to My Luxury Organic Skincare line, Velvet Skincare, or you are starting a regimen for the very first time, being introduced to all new products can be overwhelming. This is a guide to help you with your purchases and help you understand what products to use…when…and why.
I will divide these into three categories: Age-defying, Detoxifying and Hydrating. I will also separate these products into your morning and evening regimen.
- AM exfoliate, tone, stem cells, eye cream, booster, hydrating serums mixed
- PM: cleanse, tone, stem cells, eye cream, 2nd booster, serum & night cream
step 1) Anti-aging citrus peel is both your morning cleanser as well as your exfoliator. This scrub is gentle and hydrating enough to use every day because of moisture-rich ingredients like jojoba and honey. Your skin will feel revitalized and rejuvenated with both manual and chemical exfoliation. This is our number one best seller and my personal favorite. I recommend keeping and using this in your shower each morning and gently scrub all over your face, neck and decollate.
step 2) Cucumber tonic is essential in balancing your ph and preparing your skin for your hydrating serums. This is the first product you will use on clean skin. I like to apply my cucumber tonic with a “textured” square gauze pad so that I am manually exfoliating away dead skin cells. Cucumber has many healing and hydrating benefits and the added witch hazel helps clean out pores, remove oil and debris and keeps skin clean and clear.
step 3) Age-Corrective rejuvenating serum with green apple stem cells is one of the hottest and most innovative ingredients on the market today. This gel based booster will help aid in the decline of your own stem cells. Use a thin layer all over face, neck and decollate. Remember to use on the entire eye area as well to help plump thin, crepey tissue.
step 4) Velvety eye cream is essential in keeping eyes moisturized and keeping fine lines and dark spots to a minimum. Use this before your serums and it will act as a barrier so the heat of your body doesn’t draw your serums into your eyes and irritate them. This is creamy and gentle and has just a hint of lavender. This will go on top of your green apple stem cells.
step 5) Next are your Boosters, we have two: Peptides and Hyaluronic acid. I recommend using our peptides during the day because our new formula has chamomile which contains flavonoids to help fight against free-radicals and are also loaded with antioxidants.
step 6) Serums are next and we have one base, Hydra-Cell Therapy and three treatments, Age-Defying, Quench hydrating serum and Anti-Acne. Mix 1 pump of Hydra-cell with 3-5 pumps of one of our three treatment serums in palm of hand and apply evenly to face, neck and decollate.. All skin types can use Quench during the day to mix with our hydra-cell. Our new quench hydrating serum helps plump up tired dry skin. Quench contains hyaluronic acid in it so you no longer need your hyaluronic acid “booster” during the day,
step 1) Cleanse at sink with one of our many creamy, nourishing treatment cleansers:
- Glycolic lemon for anti-aging
- Creamy Oatmeal for sensitive or dehydrated skin
- Creamy lavender as a moisture-rich but gentle clarifying cleanser
- Tea tree for detoxifying or to clear up acne or blemishes
- Pink grapefruit gel cleanser for a fresh invigorating cleanse (perfect for use with Clarisonic)
step 2) tone with our hydrating Rosewater toner to moisturize and soothe. This tonic does not contain witch hazel like our cucumber tonic. perfect to refresh and hydrate at night.
steps 3 & 4) repeat stem cells and eye cream
Step 5) Booster: Use peptides during the day and hyaluronic acid at night.
step 6) SERUM & night cream:
- for anti-aging benefits use our Age-defying Serum at night (vitamin c can make you more sensitive to sun damage so I recommend using such resurfacing ingredients at night).
- For acne-prone skin, blemishes or hormonal breakouts use our Anti-acne serum at night. You do not need to mix these with hydra-cell at night. Use la Creme night cream instead for extra moisture and a more emollient treatment.
The End! 🙂
Taking care of your skin is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. Healthy, radiant, beautiful skin will help you age gracefully and give you so much more confidence than any make-up application or botox treatment can do for you. Don’t cover up your face…let it glow! As a former model and make-up artist I can tell you the most attractive women I ever met were the ones who took care of their skin and wore less make-up. The prettiest girls are the fresh-faced girls… and that is true at any age. I love what I do because I enjoy making all of you lovely women look and feel beautiful… its the best part of my day.
I hope this guide helps you with your purchases and gives you a better understanding of my products and I hope you grow to love them as much as I do. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns as I am more than happy to help. Here’s to you taking that first step to taking care of you and thank you for your valued business.
