Tips for ALL Skin Types

Most of us all know the basics of skin care: cleanse, tone, and moisturize. But a lot of us don't know why we should exfoliate, use a masque and a serum. Here are some answers to why everyone should incorporate these 3 into your skin care regimen.

Why Exfoliate?

Exfoliation is the key to vibrant skin. Regular exfoliation helps remove the hard keratin layer build-up and brings luminosity and clarity to the skin. For younger skin, exfoliation unplugs pores and keeps the skin clear and smooth. For mature skin, exfoliation is essential to help minimize fine lines, remove dry flakes, and revive sluggish skin.

Why use Masques?

Using a face masque once or twice a week will dramatically increase the elasticity and health of your skin. For instance Eminence Organics Masques contain high amounts of concentrated vitamins and nutrient-rich ingredients. When used consistently, once or twice per week, masque applications allow active ingredients to penetrate deeply into the skin giving additional hydration and firming benefits. Treatment masques can be used to control acne, rosacea, dryness or oiliness.

Why use Serums?

Serums are secret beauty elixirs to infuse skin with pure vitamins and herbs. Serums are applied as the last step before moisturizing after your skin has been cleansed and toned. The light liposome base of the serum ensures deep penetration into the skin to impart a healthy glow from within. The active ingredients plump and smooth skin to give it a luxuriously youthful look.
