Just like wearing layers of clothing throughout the winter months, layering skin care products is the best way to prepare for what the day has in store for you—not to mention giving yourself maximum protection against sun damage and premature aging! So, how do you know if you’re layering your skin care products correctly? First, in the morning and evening, remember to cleanse and exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells and bacteria. Combine your cleansing routine with a Clarisonic Pro System for added exfoliation. The patented Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing Brush uses a sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to deeply cleanse the skin far more effectively, yet more gently, than traditional superficial cleansing or simple rotating brushes. The result is noticeably smoother, more radiant skin. Topical medications (if any) are applied next. These would include topical medications for acne or conditions like Rosacea. These topicals are followed by your favorite antioxidant. The eyes are a focal point and get special attention with an eye cream just for that delicate area! Two Infinity favorites are NeoCutis’ Lumiére and Lumiére Riche. This intensive line smoothing eye cream powered by PSP® helps visibly reverse the signs of skin aging.
Follow these steps with a moisturizer if you need one. In the winter months, you may try a thicker, more emollient cream. For the more humid months, a lighter moisturizer may do the trick.
