If you're anything like me and find that there's not always time to schedule a facial or skin care treatment into a busy week - especially when the sun is shining and the great outdoors is calling, there are some easy at-home facial treats that we've put together which can give you that 'just-stepped-out-of-the-clinic' glow but all within the comfort of your own home. Here are the simple steps Lisa recommends along with the perfect product to get the job done.
Step 1 Hydra Boost Cleanser, Purifying Gel Cleanser, Sensi Calm Cleanser
Moisten face with lukewarm water apply a generous amount of cleanser onto your fingertips, gently massage the cleanser all over the face. Remove with lukewarm water and sponges. Carry out a second cleanse, again removing with sponges.
Step 2 Bright and Clear Solution
Apply Bright and Clear Solution onto a moistened cotton pad and apply all over face including the neck with either a gentle upward movement or light patting to the skin, depending on your preference.
Step 3 Lotus Scrub
Moisten face with lukewarm water and apply a small amount of scrub with your fingertips, gently massage on to the skin in a circular motion for one minute. Rise thoroughly with lukewarm water.
Step 3 Enzymatic Peel
Apply an even layer over the face, neck and décolleté with fingertips. Leave for 3-5minutes. Remove mask with a cold compress ensuring no product is left on the skin.
Step 4 Retinol 0.25% or 0.5% or 1.0%
Apply 1-2 pumps onto fingertips and apply a thin even layer all over face, neck and décolleté. Do not apply too close to the eyes.
Step 5 AHA Renewal Serum
Apply 1-2 pumps onto fingertips and gently massage onto the face, neck and décolleté.
Step 6 Recovery Balm
Apply sparingly to face, neck and décolleté
Step 7 Hydra Light, Hydra-Calm, Hydra Smooth, Hydra Dew, Hydra Clarite
Apply 1-2 pumps and gently massage into the face, neck and décolleté in an upward motion.
Step 8 Pro Effect Luminescent Base
Apply 1-2 pumps of serum and gently massage onto the face to complete the facial.
Finally, to keep your skin care regime tip top from the inside out take a daily dose of the amazing Skinade which we love in the clinic and highly recommend for an extra boost to your system.
