Before starting any skin care regimen, please consult your doctor.
The purpose of the anti-aging facial is to control future aging (non-surgical results) and to help correct past damage to the superficial tissues of the epidermis. Intrinsic factors such as: hereditary disposition (genetics) play an important role in the overall health of the skin. Extrinsic risks such as the use / abuse of drugs / drugs; use of tobacco / alcohol / abuse; hormonal fluctuations and sun exposure can wreak havoc on the skin. The sun is the worst culprit.
The integumentary system (the skin) is the largest system of the body and encompasses all other systems and organs of the body. Without this, we would look like something from a horror movie … "THE BLOB". There are six (6) skin functions: Absorption; Temperature regulation; Excretion; Secretion; Protection; Sensory. Because of its multiple functions, the skin is our first line of defense and must be treated with the utmost respect.
Follow these instructions to help you repair and to the best of our abilities … prevent future damage. Even if you use another skincare line, these steps can still be administered. This protocol is based on the brands LUMIRANCE and PURAMED Professional. Let's start.
1. Remove makeup with Cleanser Lotion (LUMIRANCE) or all makeup remover.
2. Use a warm washcloth and clean the face with GREEN TEA CLEANSER (PURAMED) or GEL CLEANSER / LOTION CLEANSER (LUMIRANCE). Use about the size of a big pea and work in the skin. Let stand on the skin for about 3 minutes. This will help break down and dislodge oils and impurities from the skin. This amounts to soaking a greasy pan after cooking.
3. Release the skin with one of the following ingredients: 70% alcohol / 90% or acetone (nail polish remover). Please use acetone with care as it is very drying. They all strip the face of any sebum (oil). They could sting, though. Use a cotton / square and rub your skin. Allow to evaporate and do not rinse.
4. Apply a chemical exfoliation from PURAMED 10% Glycolic or AHA 10% with the Kojic product you purchased with a cotton pad, a fan brush or a more aggressive treatment, use a gauze pad. Work in the skin with a circular motion paying particular attention to the corners of the eyes, naso-labial lines (corner of the nose to the mouth). DO NOT PUT IN THE EYES !!! Use a cotton swab and pass it under the eye tissue as close to the eyes as possible. DO NOT USE ON THE UPPER EYE COVER !!! Leave on for up to 10 minutes. Please consider your ability to tolerate the coat solution. Fill the sink with cool water mixed with a few spoons of baking soda (baking soda). This will create a stop of the reaction. Rinse several times at least (3 times). DO NOT RUB THE SKIN AFTER RINSE. CLEAN THE DRY SKIN ONLY. The acid will peck and itch. The more you use it, the less these symptoms will appear. Use every night as long as your skin can tolerate it without becoming raw or inflamed. A slight redness is expected. It could look like a sunburn. It's normal. STAY OUT OF THE SUN FOR LONG PERIODS. NOTE: This treatment is intended to dry your skin and loosen the link between the skin cells, which will allow them to detach themselves. Wait for PEEL to some extent. Everyone reacts differently because of the sebum (oil) content of the skin.
5. Serum Applications: Serums always come after the exfoliating phase of any facial and can be applied in any order. It is very important to remove the outer layers of the epidermis at least 2 to 3 times a week. Serums will penetrate deeper into skin tissue if you exfoliate them first (manual scrubs or chemicals).
6. Apply your vitamin C serum to 14%. (PURAMED) or ANTIOXIDANT SERUM (LUMIRANCE). Use about two (2) pumps and act quickly on the skin until absorbed. Can be used on hands and décolleté.
7. Apply Alpha Arbutin Skin Lightener Serum (PURAMED) or Skin Lightener (LUMIRANCE). Use one (1) pump. Apply quickly on the face, neck and décolleté. Can also be used on the hands.
8. Apply your hyaluronic regeneration serum (PURAMED) or SERUM (LUMIRANCE). Use one (1) pump and penetrate the skin until absorbed. Apply on the face and neck. This thing is BOMB! You will love it !!!
9. Use your SPF30 + (PURAMED) or HYRASHIELD 30 (LUMIRANCE) anti-aging moisturizing green tea every morning after completing step 2 and after any exfoliation to the skin (step 4). Always wash your face in the morning and evening and use sunscreen during the day.
By initially engaging in a daily program, then use it as needed for maintenance, your skin will be rejuvenated and crisp.
