SKIN CARE 101- ESSENTIAL SKIN CARE ROUTINE
Chose a cleanser suited to your skin type. Place a small amount into your hands and emulsify with lukewarm water. Apply to the face in a circular motion, covering the entire face for 30 seconds. Remove from the skin while gently scrubbing with a damp face cloth or sponge and rinse thoroughly, alternating with warm and cold water. Then pat dry with a soft towel. This action will remove dirt, pollution and impurities from the skin’s surface and prepare it for toning and moisturizing.
Apply one to two sprays of toner, suited to your skin type, over the entire face and leave on. Toners are important to balance the natural pH of your skin and to infuse your skin with natural vitamins and minerals. Your skin will feel rejuvenated with each spray with the added aromatherapy benefit contained in the real fruits and herbs.
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 massaging in to skin in a circular motion for a few minutes. If want you can leave on skin like a mask, to dry for a few more minutes. Use a face cloth moistened with lukewarm water to gently scrub off the remaining exfoliant masque using a circular motion while scrubbing (if skin is not sensitive). Rinse thoroughly with clean water.

MOISTURIZE DAY AND NIGHT
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. For a lighter application, emulsify a small amount of moisturizer in your hand with a few drops of water. For extra hydration, apply a thicker layer in dry areas.
Using a gentle tapping motion, apply a small amount of eye cream to the contour area all around the eyes, including eye lids, taking care not to tug the delicate skin around the eye area.

Apply Sun Defense Minerals ( a powder formula that can be water proof) or a daily SPF moisturizer to finish and protect the skin.
