1. Get a Facial
Treat yourself to a professional facial. (If you’re around New York City, book yourself a fabulous facial at our skin care salon.) Monthly facials will yield optimal results, but you will notice a difference in your skin almost immediately after one facial—typically your skin will look brighter and clearer due to extractions, a professional-grade exfoliant, and treatment mask. It’s worth it, trust us!

2. Use Toner
Toner is often overlooked, but a few swipes of it on your face will instantly refresh the skin. Choose one according to your skin type.

3. Apply Glow-Enhancing Serum
Give your skin a ‘shot a glow’ by applying a serum packed with skin-boosting ingredients such as vitamin c, peptides, and collagen. (We love this super-hydrating, oil-free serum)

4. Soothe  and Hydrate Tired Eyes with Eye Gel or Cream
Moisturize and revive the eye area with an eye cream or gel. We like to store our eye products in the refrigerator for an instant, cooling method of helping to reduce eye puffiness.

5. Exfoliate
Exfoliating will instantly polish the skin, leaving it looking brighter and resurfaced. Use either a scrub or an alpha-hyroxy acid.

6. Apply a Mask
Treating your skin 2 to 3 times a week with a face mask will quickly target your biggest skin issues. For example, a hydrating mask can perk up dry skin while an oil-absorbing treatment can help reduce acne.

7. Spot Treat 
Have any acne blemishes? Nip them in the bud by spot-treating accordingly. For whiteheads, use our Drying Lotion overnight. The Buffering Lotion is a good choice for Cystic Acne.
