Our delicate skin takes a beating every day. Damaging elements like sun, dirt, oil, bacteria and airborne pollutants wreak havoc on our skin, causing premature aging and making it appear older, drier, and less healthy than it should be.
If you’re anything like us, the thought of countless skincare products with complicated applications sounds exhausting. So what can you do? The answer: a simple skincare routine that actually produces noticeable results.
Powered by the anti-aging powerhouse immortelle oil, the following skincare routine can help you reverse the visible signs of aging, like wrinkles, fine lines, puffy skin, sun damage, scarring, and more—not to mention help prevent blemishes and breakouts.
We see smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin in your future! Here’s how to achieve it:
For best results, repeat the following routine both morning and night. Don’t forget to wash your hands before applying each product to avoid yucky consequences like bacteria or infections. Also be careful not to tug at your skin when using skincare products and to apply with a gentle upward motion.
Cleansing is the foundation of every effective skincare regimen. Removing any hidden dirt, makeup, oils, and pollutants from our skin is absolutely crucial for avoiding clogged pores, breakouts, and other blemishes.
If you wear makeup often, it’s a good idea to double cleanse, just to ensure each layer is thoroughly removed. For makeup users, follow the directions below starting with an oil-based cleanser, followed up again by a lighter, water-based cleanser.
When cleansing, use lukewarm water. Gently massage your face in small, circular motions, working your way from the middle of your face out. Don’t forget to cleanse your neck, too, also using small circles in an upward motion.
Because the skin around your eyes is thinner and more delicate, you need to be especially gentle when cleansing this area. Using the tips of your ring fingers, sweep back and forth across your eyelids and under eye area. The water and cleanser should allow you to glide smoothly without applying too much pressure.
After cleansing for at least 60 seconds, carefully rinse your face and pat it dry with a clean, soft towel. For best results, cleanse both in the morning and at night before bed. We also recommend cleansing after workouts and outdoor activity.
Exfoliating can produce remarkable results—smoother, brighter skin and a better complexion included—but you really only need to do it a few nights a week.
We suggest mechanical exfoliation, which uses a scrub, brush, or other tool to remove those dead skin cells that give our skin a dull, drier look. It’s all about listening to your skin and finding the right balance between too often and not enough. We suggest starting with once a week and eventually working your way up to 2-3 times a week.
Masks are another excellent tool, helping reduce and prevent redness, dryness, and inflammation like morning puffy face. They’re also great for giving your skin a quick pick-me-up whenever it needs some TLC, resulting in a smoother, fresher appearance. They’re basically a must before dates and your weekly girls’ nights out.
For an easy DIY mask you can make at home, mix 3 drops of immortelle oil, (aka Helichrysum Italicum essential oil) with 1 tbsp. honey and the whites of 1 egg. Or, simply add 3 drops of immortelle oil to 1/2 an avocado smashed. Then, just sit back and relax for roughly 20 minutes. You deserve it!
It might be tempting but trust us, you don’t want to skip on toner, which revitalizes skin chemistry and preps it for absorbing much-needed nutrients.
Without an antioxidant toner, your skin is vulnerable to free radicals, which damage our skin’s collagen, leading to dark spots, wrinkles, and sagging facial skin.
Both the energizing Grapefruit & Aloe Facial Toner and the soothing Lavender Anti-Aging Toner harness the power of immortelle essential oil to help turn back the clock. To combat skin damage, acne and free radicals, mist your face and neck with one of the above toners, let it soak in for about 30 seconds, then gently pat your face dry with a soft, clean towel.
While your face is still dewy from toning, reach for your Anti-Aging Facial Serum.
Enriched with a decadent fusion of rose hips, vetiver, clary sage, ho wood, sea buckthorn and Helichrysum Italicum, nothing fights aging like our Anti-Aging Facial Serum.
To reduce inflammation, fine lines and wrinkles, simply place a few drops on your fingertips and gently pat them onto your face.
To target sun damage, dark spots, scarring, and breakouts, dilute 4-8 drops of immortelle oil (aka Helichrysum Italicum Essential Oil) with almond, coconut or jojoba oil, and apply to affected areas.
A nutrient-rich moisturizer is a must for preventing loose skin and restoring your skin’s natural elasticity and firmness.
Add 3-5 drops of immortelle oil (aka Helichrysum Italicum Essential Oil) to your chosen moisturizer and apply liberally to your face and neck. To prevent sun damage, follow up your moisturizer with a light, non-oily natural sunblock.
Did you know in addition to its many beauty benefits, a daily skincare routine can naturally soothe stress, anxiety, and promote good vibes!?
Now go on and treat yourself: light a relaxing candle, diffuse some stress-melting immortelle oil, and indulge in your new, age-defying skincare routine daily. You deserve it! Fresher, younger-looking skin is just around the corner.
