Your skin is one of the many organs of the body that goes into a repair mode when you sleep. Don’t neglect this important opportunity to assist your skin in its night-time repair. Before retiring for the night, always cleanse your face and neck with CITRUS CLEANSING LOTION, tone with CUCUMBER TONER/ASTRINGENT, and apply one of our night-time moisturizers to help protect the proper moisture level of the upper epidermis. Below the surface, these night moisturizers work to nourish and encourage younger cells, for healthier, more rapid rejuvenation.
Most skin care programs add oils to dry skin, and alcohol or other drying agents to oily skin. Both dry and oily skin types need moisture – not oils or drying alcohols. When you apply oily products to dry skin, your skin sends a message to the brain that it needs to slow down your body’s natural oil production. It becomes a vicious cycle; the more oil you apply, the more dry your skin becomes. Likewise, applying drying alcohol products to oily skin sends a message to the brain that the skin needs more oil, and the cycles continue.
