Become an esthetician from the comfort and convenience of home with these facial tips borrowed from the pros. Follow these simple steps for a radiant complexion, whether the occasion is a special night out or it’s time for your weekly home facial:
Perfect Your Cleansing: Begin with a treatment cleanser and brightening toner to dissolve traces of makeup and dirt while minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. HydroPeptide’s Cleansing Gel: Cleanse Tone Makeup Remover is a multi-tasking cleanser that will balance skin’s PH, remove makeup and deep clean in one simple step. HydroPeptide’s Cleanse: Anti-Wrinkle Exfoliating Cleanser is an example of a gentle exfoliating cleanser that promotes healthy skin renewal and clarity. HydroPeptide’s Tone: Anti-wrinkle Brightening Tonernot only visibly shrinks pore size, it contains bearberry and lactic acid to promote a more even skin tone.
- For oily, normal and dry skin: Cleansing Gel followed by Cleanse and Tone will leave behind a flawless and radiant complexion for all.
- For maintenance, using the exfoliating Cleanse in the morning to increase cell turnover and Cleansing Gel at night to remove makeup is recommended. Tone can be used twice a day to prep the skin for a treatment serum.
- For sensitive and acne prone skin: Cleansing Gel is gentle enough to remove impurities without irritating the skin. This cleanser also contains Green Tea, Chamomile and Cucumber to soothe and protect skin from free radical damage.
- Depending on sensitivity level, Cleanse and Tone may also be used. A double cleanse and application of toner is not recommended for easily irritated skin types and those experiencing active breakouts.
Peel Away Impurities: HydroPeptide’s zero down-time, two-step Peel is a radiance-boosting home treatment to indulge in before any and all special occasions! Powerful Vitamin C-infused microdermabrasion crystals, wrinkle-reducing peptides and a unique lactic acid-activating gel will polish and plump your complexion to perfection.
