Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do I need to use a cleanser AM & PM?
A: Yes. Cleansing is part of the exfoliation process. Using a cleanser is important in the AM as it helps to remove the products of metabolism produced over-nite. You want to use a gentle cleanser so as not to strip your skin of its natural protective oils. Cleansing at nite is imperative, especially if you wear make-up. When you skip this step it can lead to clogged pores, break-outs and just plain un-healthy skin.
Q: How often should I use a scrub or Clairsonic type device?
A: This type of exfoliation is referred to as “mechanical exfoliation”. Any type of mechanical exfoliation should be limited to once a week maximum. Over-exfoliation can strip the natural protective oils from the skin and cause dryness and sensitivity.
Q: Do I need a toner?
A: It depends on the toner. The ingredients in some toners can be very drying. I suggest doing some research using google to look up the first 4-6 listed ingredients.
Q: Are products with oil bad for my skin?
A: No. Your skin produces oil and likes oil. I recommend an oil cleanser especially for oily skin. Oil cleansers help to keep your natural oils soft to reduce congestion.
Q: Do I need a facial?
A: Of course! If you are experiencing any kind of skin issue the best way to get a handle on it is to see your esthetician. I can also help to answer questions and guide your choices on products.
