Well… Summer’s just about over and your skin has taken a lot of abuse. UV rays have broken down collagen and weakened elastin.. Your skin may have a healthy tan, but deep down, your dehydrated, pigmented skin is yelling for help.
Here’s a great treatment I had done a few weeks ago by Alexis Robertson, Image Skincare Massachusetts Territory Manager and Educator (click here to visit & LIKE her Facebook Page).
This fabulous treatment will help your skin get back to optimal health and ready for peel season!
(Only to be done by your aesthetic professional)
Organic Passion Peptide Resurfacing Treatment step by step:
1. Double cleanse. First cleanse is done with Vital C hydrating cleanser. A creamy, hydrating cleanser that removes all makeup and impurities. With its famous orange peel smell and a luxurious creamy feel, your skin will soak up all the goodness resulting in nothing but a soft glow.
2. Second cleanser: Ormedic Balancing Gel Cleanser. This gentle cleanser leaves your skin squeaky clean without any build-up or residue. Organic green tea, chamomile, and a harmonizing blend of comfrey, calendula and rich botanicals, deliver essential nutrients to restore your skin’s natural balance. Leaves skin soft, hydrated, and naturally clean.
This layer stays on for a good 5 minutes, then rinsed off. Your skin will already look & feel fantastic!
4. Next, comes a layer of the Ormedic Balancing Soothing Gel Masque..
An ultra-gentle, organic cooling gel masque formulated for compromised, inflamed or irritated skin. Organic Aloe Vera, Arnica Montana and licorice quickly help reduce redness and other signs of irritation while bringing sensitive skin into healthy balance. (Also may used at home 3 times a week for highly reactive, rosacea or acneic skin types). Check out the list of key ingredients below… What an incredible masque!
5. After removing the Gel Masque, a 25% hyaluronic acid (HA) facial enhancer is applied. HA is a super hydrator and is well known for its plumping & filling effect, which is what Juvederm and other injectable fillers are made of.
It’s also a major component of skin, where it is involved in tissue repair. When skin is exposed to excessive UVB rays, it becomes inflamed (sunburn) and the cells in the dermis stop producing as much HA, and increase the rate of its deterioration. HA deterioration products then accumulate in the skin after UV exposure. (This is one of the reasons why this treatment is great after a summer of sun!)
6. Then, a layer of the Ormedic Balancing Antioxidant Serum. This unbelievable serum is “A silky, ultra hydrating botanical serum infused with organic Japanese green tea, Aloe Vera and a copper-complex peptide. Perfectly absorbed, it continuously balances your skin from within and lastingly restores its ideal moisture level. Leaves your skin intensely hydrated with a healthy glow.”
(www.imageskincare.com)… My description wasn’t as “on-point” as theirs.. 🙂
7. Next… (oh yes.. there’s more!) we apply 25% Antioxidant Facial Enhancer. (which, BTW was added to the first layer as well):
Step 8. Ormedic Balancing Eye Lift Gel..
Smoothes and diminishes fine lines
Instantly hydrates Eyes
Diminishes dark circles
Relaxes crows feet
9. Daily Defense Tinted Moisturizer… My fav SPF!!
This pure physical broad spectrum UVA/UVB moisturizer provides an even skin tone and healthy glow while protecting against the damaging effects of the sun. Enriched with essential vitamins and potent anti-oxidants as free radical scavengers.
10. Lastly, the Ormedic Balancing Lip Enhancement Treatment.. I love this!
A super hydrating anti-aging polypeptide lip complex, which dramatically enhances the appearance of lip contours. Adding up to 40% more moisture, volume and reducing fine lines with repeat usage. (I also love using this lip treat after lip augmentations… lips look and feel amazing!)
And that’s it!
