Step 1: Cleanse

The first step to a healthier complexion is cleansing. Be sure to remove dirt and other pore-clogging bacteria.

Step 2: Shave

The best time to shave is after you shower. The warm water allows pores to open and softens facial hair before shaving.

As you shave, go with the grain, not against it. This will help to prevent hair bumps from forming

Step 3: After Shave or Serum

After Shave
After-shave is used to help heal nicks and cuts, stop bleeding and calm discomforted shaved skin.
These highly concentrated and fast penetrating fluids provide a potent dose of nutrients and bioactive ingredients deep within the layers of your skin, much farther than moisturizers can go. Serums also work deeply to bring oil and hydration into balance, strengthen your skin, and increase visible firmness and youthfulness.

Product Suggestions:

Step 4: Moisturize and Sunscreen

Applying a hydrator (water based for oily skin) or moisturizer (oil based for dry skin) while skin is still damp helps to lock in additional moisture.
Sun is our worst enemy in the battle against premature aging. UV rays cause damage to our skin causing wrinkles, dark spots and blotchiness. Sunscreen is the most important step in a daily regimen in helping to protect skin against cancer.

Step 5: Body Care

Your face is not the only part of your body that needs exfoliation and moisture!

Using a nylon puff or a sea sponge loofa 3-5x a week will make skin smoother and minimize itchiness.

Your skin needs moisturized from head to toe, especially dry spots like elbows, knees and feet. Apply moisturizer following a shower or whenever your skin demands it.
