Let’s Face It 101 Part 3 – Clarifying Skincare for Oily Skin

Caring for oily skin doesn’t have to be confusing or complicated. Webster defines the word “clarify” as to be made clear or illuminated. Who doesn’t want to be in the world with clear purpose and an illuminated mind? Our skin wants to be clear and radiant, too. The Essential Clarifying Line is your go-to lineup of skincare for oily skin.

Initially designed for people with chaotic or oily skin, the Clarifying Line is suitable for normal and dry skin, as well, especially when life gets a little overwhelming and your skin needs a little extra love and attention. The organically preserved Clarifying Line uses charcoal, MSM, antioxidants, and vitamins to care your skin.

As you did last week, you’ll discover the skincare products you and your customers’ deserve, and how to apply them at home or in the spa.

Skincare with the Clarifying Facial Line

Step 1: Cleanse

Clarifying Facial Cleanser – Help your skin through those chaotic times, and combat the oil! With the incredible oil and dirt binding properties of activated charcoal and the powers of tamanu oil and MSM, you will be able to deep-cleanse while refining your skin’s texture. The Clarifying Cleanser is an incredibly effective, gentle, and refreshing cleanser for oily skin. Organic green tea extract, rooibos tea extract, tamanu oil, organic willow bark extract, provitamin B5, vitamin C ester, vitamin E and organic olive oil gently moisturize, while the charcoal deeply cleans. This cleanser is very effective for all skin types, utilizing both a cream-based cleanser and surfactants.

At Home Application of Clarifying Facial Cream Cleanser

  • Squeeze a pea-sized amount into dampened palms.
  • Work into a very slight lather.
  • Apply to wet face, neck and chest.
  • Massage in upward circular motions with your fingertips, avoiding the eye area and concentrating on troubled areas.
  • Rinse thoroughly with tepid water and pat dry with a clean, soft towel.

Spa Application of Clarifying Facial Cream Cleanser

  • Ensure smooth “glide” by adding water or a spritzing toner
  • Pay extra attention to areas of congestion.
  • Use a steamed towel to remove traces of cleanser.

Step 2: Exfoliate

Exfoliants help remove dead skin. Exfoliating leaves skin soft and supple, enhancing a natural, fresh look.

Clarifying Facial Exfoliant combines gentle jojoba beads, organic aloe, and organic olive oil. Blended with a fantastic set of multi-fruit acids, including organic pineapple extract, organic papaya extract, bilberry extract, organic cranberry extract, organic orange extract and so much more, to clarify, smooth, and soothe your skin.

Step 3: Tone

Toners help the skin by balancing the pH, minimizing the look of pores, removing residuals missed during cleansing and preparing the skin to receive the serums and moisturizers to come.

Chaotic Skin Facial Astringent, with the soothing power of organic aloe, MSM, and organic rooibos tea extract, this toner helps calm chaotic skin. The incredible combination of cranberry extract, organic lavender extract, organic green tea extract, organic oat straw extract and organic calendula extract keeps skin clean, fresh, and soft.

Step 4: Serum aka nourishment

Serums provide fast absorbing, concentrated ingredients to create beautiful, glowing skin. Always use a small amount under your moisturizer as part of your skin care.

Clarifying Facial Serum is excellent skin care for oily skin, and normal, combination and chaotic skin types will love it, too. With organic aloe, DMAE, hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil, organic rooibos tea extract and vitamin E, this serum soothes and provides skin with critical nourishment. We love adding just a touch of pink grapefruit Essential Oil for a bright, citrus scent.

At Home Application of Clarifying Facial Serum

  • Follow with Clarifying Facial Moisturizer.

Step 5: Moisturize

Every face (neck and chest, too), needs a moisturizer on a daily basis, even if you have oily skin. Moisturizers’ primary function is to help keep all of the nourishing oils from your serum on your skin.

Clarifying Facial Moisturizer  Organic aloe, organic shea butter, organic rooibos tea extract, and organic green and white tea extracts blend deliciously with organic jojoba oil, DMAE, and evening primrose oil. We’ve added vitamin C-bursting rosehip oil, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin E rounds out this hard-working moisturizer. Never greasy or oily, your skin will look and feel soothed, hydrated, radiant, and refreshed.
