Exfoliate: DERMAFLASH 2.0
Exfoliating your skin is one of the most important steps in achieving bright, luminous skin, as it sloughs away impurities and can help tighten large pores, creating a smooth palette for makeup. The morning of a big event is no time to skip exfoliation, but it’s important to choose a gentle exfoliator that won’t irritate or inflame the skin. Prep your skin like the pros with the DERMAFLASH 2.0. It’s inspired by an in-office treatment called dermaplaning, and uses gentle sonic vibrations to gently remove dead skin cells and any unwanted fine hair right in the comfort of your own home. Skin will be left baby-bottom soft and ready for the benefits of your other skin care products.
Cleanse: Vichy Purete Thermale Beautifying Cleansing Micellar Oil and Revision Skincare Brightening Facial Wash
A soft, clean and smooth palette is essential for any award-worthy look, so the day of a big event, take your cleansing routine to new heights by using a cleansing oil and a facial wash. Start with a cleansing oil like Vichy Purete Thermale Beautifying Cleansing Micellar Oil – it uses micellar technology to gently dissolve impurities and any lingering makeup from the skin and eyes. Camellia oil further nourishes the skin leaving it soft, supple and moisturized. Next, choose Revision Skincare Brightening Facial Wash to brighten up your complexion with Vitamin C, licorice extract and lily extract and further smooth way any rough texture with salicylic and glycolic acids.
Revitalize and Soften: Exuviance Bionic Oxygen Facial
A mask treatment is a wonderful way to relax and pamper yourself before a big event while further nurturing your complexion.
