It is common for a client’s skin to have a combination of skin problems. You can discover changes in texture, redness, loss of elasticity, or dry, flaky skin. If you’re wondering how to repair and protect skin that is tender and dry, we have a Repair & Protect facial treatment plan to replenish your clients’ skin barrier.
A Repair & Protect facial treatment for dry skin: step by step
Step 1: clean
Start by cleaning your client’s skin to remove any blemishes, dirt, or makeup build-up. The Coconut Milk Cleanser is formulated for dry skin and contains coconut milk, calendula oil, virgin coconut oil and a BioComplex. These natural ingredients protect and maintain the appearance of the skin during the BioComplex minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Another option suitable for all skin types is the gentle Stone Crop Gel Wash. With chamomile, stone crop and shea butter, this cleanser provides moisture and minimizes the appearance of blemishes.
Step 2: toning
Our Stone Crop Hydrating Mist was developed for the appearance of uneven skin textures. It contains stone fruit juice, lavender, and jasmine to help increase the skin’s moisture levels. Moisture is the key to improving the texture of the skin, leaving the skin looking radiant and hydrated.
Step 3: exfoliating & extractions
If your client has sunburned skin, skip the exfoliating and extraction step. Otherwise, perform extractions as needed. For a peeling, apply the Rosehip & Maize Exfoliating Masque in a ratio of 1: 1 mixed with water. Leave the mask on for five to seven minutes before removing it with a warm, damp cloth. Rose hip moisturizes and improves the complexion, while cornmeal and salicylic acid gently remove dead skin. In this step you can offer an additional lip peeling with the Citrus Enzyme Lip Exfoliator. Apply a thin layer of scrub to the lip and leave it on for five minutes. Remove with a damp sponge, then blot with a tissue or clean towel.
If your client’s skin is suffering from environmental stress, the soothing face and body hydrator with rose hip and lemongrass is recommended to soothe dry skin. No massage is required. It contains rose hip and aloe to moisturize and revitalize the appearance of the skin. This hydrator contains a Natural repair complex is extracted from rose hips and rosemary to protect the skin from the drying effects of environmental stress.
Step 4: masking
Apply the masks after extractions with a facial massage or simply as a leave-on mask. For oily skin, apply the moisturizing Stone Crop Masque to minimize greasiness and improve uneven skin tone. Honey, lemon and stone fruits provide a moisturizing effect to smooth the appearance of the skin. Emulsify a small amount of the mask in your hand with a few drops of water and apply the face mask to the entire face and, if desired, the neck and cleavage area. Let it dry for five to ten minutes before removing and rinsing it with a lukewarm cloth to make sure the skin is clean.
Apply the Yellow Sweet Clover Anti-Redness Masque to dry or normal skin following the same steps as the above mask. With jojoba oil and sweet clover, this is a gentle product made from biodynamic® ingredients from Demeter International Certified Biodynamic® farms.
Now is a good opportunity for you to offer your customer an additional treatment for the neck, décolleté and hand and foot treatment. Apply the moisturizing Rose Hip & Lemongrass Soothing Hydrator or Apricot Body Oil. Massage in and leave to take effect.
If your customer is afraid of puffy eyes, you can perform an additional eye treatment with the cucumber eye gel. Cucumber, shea butter, and bearberry work together to rejuvenate the appearance of the skin and minimize puffiness in this sensitive area.
Step 6: massage
It is time for your client to feel relaxed and calm with a facial massage. Mix the rose hip and lemongrass repair balm with a few drops of either the Facial Recovery Oil or the Rosehip Triple C + E Firming Oil. Emulsify, apply and massage in for five to seven minutes. Carefully remove the excess product with a warm, damp cloth.
Do not massage the sunburned skin, but apply the Rosehip & Lemongrass Repair Balm lightly and seal it off with a spray of the Stone Crop Hydrating Mist.
If the area under the eyes has very dark circles, you can do an additional eye treatment with Wild Plum Eye Cream to lighten the area.
Step 7: serum
Regardless of the skin type of your customer, combine the Calm Skin Arnica Booster Serum and the Stone Crop Serum and apply a layer to the skin and let it take effect.
Step 8: moisturizing
An important step in repairing your client’s skin is moisturizing. For dry skin types, use the ultra-rich rose hip and lemongrass repair balm. This product is often recommended here as it improves the skin tone, texture, and appearance of dry skin. For oily skin types, apply the Rose Hips & Lemongrass Soothing Hydrator for face & body. Normal skin types can use both products. For extremely sensitive skin, add a few drops of the Rosehip Triple C + E Firming Oil and apply gently.
Step 9: eye care
Apply a thin layer of Marine Flower Peptide Eye Cream or Bearberry Eye Repair Cream to the eye area. Use gentle mixing agitation until the product is absorbed and allow it to act.
Step 10: solar defense
To protect against sun damage, apply a moisturizer with a sun protection factor and leave it on. The Red Currant Protective Moisturizer SPF 40 is ideal for combination skin and normal skin. It contains zinc oxide, a natural mineral that forms a physical barrier and protects the skin from sun damage. Also formulated with Youth Shield Antioxidant Complex (Red currant, elderflower, magnolia bark) this sun protection minimizes the appearance of signs of aging.
For normal, hyperpigmented skin, apply the Bright Skin Moisturizer SPF 40, which combats the appearance of dark spots and provides sun protection. You can use Tropical Vanilla Day Cream SPF 40 for all skin types. With a relaxing, tropical vanilla scent, this sunscreen contains shea butter and aloe that moisturize the skin while providing sun protection. Finally, apply the Sun Defense Minerals SPF 30 for an additional sun care step on all skin types.
Step 11: lip care / additional lip treatment
End this treatment by protecting your client’s lips with the Citrus Lip Balm or the Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm SPF 15. To add color, mix some powder makeup into the balm, for example No.4 or No.5 sun protection minerals.
