What do you do when the happy marriage of your skincare routine starts to fall apart? Everything was going along just fine, but now you’re starting to notice some cracks. Something just feels different and your old routine just isn’t making your skin happy anymore.
It’s worth noting that a reaction or allergic response tends to happen immediately (within hours) after exposure to a new product or ingredient your skin disagrees with. Other changes in your complexion can appear more gradually due to hormones, diet, stress levels, or the natural changes that come with aging.
YOUR PORES NEED BREATHING ROOM
Skin cells have a natural renewal process where old cells are continually replaced by new cells. As you age, the schedule for new cell delivery slows down and dead cells begin to pile up on the surface.
In addition to dulling your complexion and causing blemishes or dry patches, the pile-up in your pores can prevent your skin from absorbing the nutrients and hydration your products are trying to deliver. Your pores are suffocating and it’s showing all over your face. 😳
START WITH A CLEAN SLATE
It seems small, but skipping your facewash for just a few days can contribute to build-up, especially if you go to bed without removing SPF or makeup.
We confidently recommend our Double Cleanse Kit for all skin types. Instead of an all-in-one approach or formulas tailored to a specific skin condition, this kit offers flexibility while also covering the basics that all skin needs: nutrition, hydration and exfoliation.
For a gentle clean Creme de la Creme Hydrant Cleanser + reusable Bonni-Pads remove dirt and makeup without any harsh ingredients. AHA/BHA Exfoliant Cleanser polishes your skin’s surface with non-abrasive jojoba beads, while Glycolic, Salicylic, and Lactic Acids loosen the bonds that keep oil and dead cells trapped in the pores.
VITAMIN C(ELL) RENEWAL
Once your skin’s basic needs are met, you can begin to tackle the deeper issues.
Many people think exfoliation means a physical scrubbing of the skin, but ingredients like Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) penetrate the deeper layers to boost new skin cells at the source. Vitamin C is also known to neutralize the effects of free radical damage and can help to improve the appearance of fine lines and dark spots.
It's not a bad idea to proceed with caution when adding a new active ingredient to your skincare regimen, especially if you have sensitive skin or have had a reaction in the past. Skin that is prone to redness or inflammation can benefit from our soothing Vitamin C Moisturizer.
This mild formulation uses the power of Vitamin C to target and repair damage, while soothing ingredients like squalane and marine extracts hydrate and condition the skin.

For more intense cell turnover, consider a concentrated complex like our Vital C Youth Serum made with 10% hydra-stabilized L-Ascorbic Acid + a blend of Amino Acids and Citrus Extracts. Just a few drops a day will target dark spots, rough texture, and build-up. Clients who use this product love their glowing results!
TIP: Exfoliation can bring refreshing results to dull skin, but don’t overdo it. Put a pause on exfoliating acids and scrubs any time your skin is experiencing tightness, sensitivity or irritation. Do not exfoliate if your skin is sunburned or if you’ve recently had a chemical peel or Microderm treatment.
Vitamin C can counteract free radical damage, but for serious sun protection, make sure you're wearing a daily SPF that is formulated to deflect and absorb UVA & UVB rays. Radiant Vital C is an intensely moisturizing SPF 30 that doesn't feel greasy or heavy on the skin. This formula goes on smoothly without leaving a white cast and has a pleasant natural fragrance that our customers love! Use it daily in place of your morning moisturizer.
