Skin Care Routine 101
At Shanti Wellness Centre, we believe in providing high quality, natural, skin care product. With most of our shelves filled with the Eminence Organic Skin Care products, many customers may not be aware what they need for their skin type or what steps are required for healthy skin.
For basic essential skin care, you only require the following 4 steps:
Cleanse: Choose a cleanser suited for your skin type. Place a pea size amount on your hand, add water to activate and apply to face in a circular motion for 30 seconds. Remove with a damp cloth then rinse thoroughly. This action will remove dirt, pollution and impurities from the skin’s surface and prepare it for toning and moisturizing.
Tone: Toners are important to balance the natural pH of your skin and to infuse your skin with natural vitamins and minerals. Apply 1 to 2 sprays covering your entire face and leave on. Your skin will feel rejuvenated with each spray with the added aromatherapy benefit.
Moisturize: Choose a moisturizer suited to your skin type. Hydrate and soften the skin with a moisturizer suited to your skin type. Even oily skins need a light moisturizer to keep skin soft and supple. Apply a layer of moisturizer over the entire face and neck area and leave on. Using a small amount, spread over entire face and neck. For a lighter treatment add water.
Night Care: If you want to diminish the signs of aging, hydrate your with moisture-rich products that deeply nourish and support your skin’s natural renewal process while you sleep. By using active natural ingredients, you’ll wake up with a bright, radiant and more youthful looking complexion.
This routine takes less time than brushing your teeth. You can easily cleanse your face while showering, then add toner and moisturizer in 30 seconds!
If you’d like enhanced skin care then you require more products, and some do not have to be applied daily.
Enhanced Skin Care
Exfoliate: It is important to exfoliate your skin at least once or twice per week to help remove dead skin cells and dirt that can dull your complexion. To exfoliate, first cleanse the skin, then apply the exfoliant suited to your skin type and allow to stay on for 5 minutes. Use a face cloth moistened with lukewarm water to gently scrub off the remaining exfoliant.
Mask & Treat: Find a mask suited to your skin type or to the condition that you are treating. Emulsify a small amount of the mask in your hand with a few drops of water and apply evenly over the entire face and neck areas as well as the décolleté. Allow the mask to dry for 5–10 minutes. Use a face cloth moistened with lukewarm water to gently scrub off the mask using a circular motion. Rinse thoroughly with clear water, and pat skin dry. This step can be done once or twice a week and a mask helps to draw out impurities from your pores.
Prevent & Correct: Remedy specific skin care concerns, such as lack of firmness, acne or rosacea, with an active serum, booster-serum, concentrate or oil. Once you experience the benefits of this step you’ll want to continue to include this essential step in your daily routine. Apply your treatment after toner in a thin layer and leave on.
Eye Care: Using a gentle tapping motion, apply a small amount of eye cream to the contour area around the eyes, taking care not to tug the delicate skin around the eye area. This step could also be become part of your daily routine.
