If you saw this month’s Sweet Talk, you’d know how much we ALL LOVE makeup (and some of us like the fetal position hehe). With Halloween just around the corner, this time of year is an MUA’s dream! But, after all the hauntings stop and the costumes come off, we are still left with our skin. Our glorious skin that is about to be in every family photo from now until January! If you remember from Lina’s ‘5-minute makeup challenge’ from the webisode, there were 3 main products sitting off to the side from the ‘I Love My Skin Kit‘. These powerhouse products will not only return your skin to its glorious pre-costume vigor, it will keep you glowing for years to come!
The Skin Kit
This gentle cleanser is safe for ALL skin types. Presept thoroughly cleanses your skin while maintaining your Ph balance. But it does so much more than that as well. With its star ingredient, Acai, you can expect results. Acai, as we all know, is a powerhouse antioxidant that can help repair sun damage. In addition to this, though, Acai is loaded with B vitamins -which is great for eczema; Vitamin E-which aides with collagen reproduction and strengthens elasticity; as well as all 3 fatty acids detrimental to skin strength. The simple act of cleansing your skin literally helps you to battle environmental stressors and prevent accelerated skin aging.
This toner is the key to getting your products to work in unison! Essential™ Tonic is simply that: essential. Myrrh calms and soothes the skin. So, if you are experiencing any breakouts or irritation, this tonic will provide relief. Myrrh also has antifungal and skin healing properties as well. The real magic of this tonic, though, is Lactic Acid: Essential™ Tonic has 7% Lactic Acid. Lactic Acid is one of the most gentle AHAs on the market. It’s safe for daily exfoliation and aids in lessening the appearance of scarring from acne. In addition to exfoliation, it helps promote collagen growth.
Hydration at its purest! Restore™ Hydrating Lotion is perfect for sensitive, oily and dry skin types alike. It is safe to use from head to toe, fragrance-free, paraben-free, petro-free, formaldehyde-free, and non-comedongenic. Glycerin works towards locking moisture into the skin without leaving a residue or clogging pores. The proprietary blend of 5 essential oils and extracts work towards healing skin and reducing acne without sacrificing moisture. It’s the perfect way to finish off any skincare regime!
While this kit is perfect for at-home use post hair-removal, it is also a perfect kit for your client’s daily skincare needs. While doing your pre-treatment routine, chat about the skincare benefits that the cleanser and tonic have. Discuss daily cleansing rituals and see if this is a good fit for your client’s lifestyle. During post-treatment, discuss the benefits of hydration vs moisturization (even for oily and acneic skin!). Point out that Restore is a HYDRATING lotion. Also, keep a kit in your treatment room, as well as in the retail area. Being able to touch, feel, smell and experience a product really peaks interest.
Whether in a gym bag, carry-on luggage or on your bathroom sink, the I Love My Skin kit is a must have for any costume-wearing ghoul! Keep your skin glorious in ALL your family photos for months and years to come!
