Do you tone after a cleanse?

If there was one thing that you may be missing in your life, it could be this…

Cleanser, serum, moisturizer and sunscreen – the most basic skin care routine that most people follow (well minus the sunscreen. It’s often neglected, unfortunately. *real tears*). However, although sunscreen is very important and should be used year-round, it’s not what we want to address in today’s blog. We’ll save that lecture for another blog!!

Whenever I conduct a skin care consultation, one of the questions that I always ask is “What does your regular skin care routine look like on a daily basis?” I typically receive a wide range of answers varying from no skin care routine at all to a full 782 step regimen! Ok, I may be exaggerating just a tad, but you’d be surprised at how extensive some people’s skin care routines are. The key to beautiful skin does not have to be a vanity full of different skin care brands. The key is consistency and the right products catered towards YOUR skin. It’s also important that you are properly using these products in the order that they should be used so that the skin can be prepped and ready to receive all of the good nutrients that your skin care products have to offer!

To properly prep the skin, the cleansing process is very important. What most people do not realize is that the cleansing process can be a 2-step and sometimes 3-step process. If the skin is not fully clean, all other products applied afterwards would just be a waste.

How to Cleanse the Skin:

  1. Cleanse with a Milky Cleanser. (If oily, start with a gel cleanser). I personally recommend starting with our GM Collin Hydramucine Cleansing Milk (or GM Collin Puractive Cleansing Gel for oily skin types). They are literally a luxury for your skin!
  2. Exfoliate (only if needed). This step helps to get rid of dead skin on the surface so that your subsequent products can have higher efficacy. We’ll dive deeper into exfoliation in another blog, because whew!
  3. TONE! This is that vital step that you may have been missing out on. Gasp!

 

Toning helps to  remove any residual dirt, oil, debris, or cleanser that may still be on the skin. It also helps to rebalance your skin’s pH. Some toners also include active ingredients to help treat different skin conditions such as dehydration or breakouts. Your skin should not feel stripped or tight after toning. It should feel refreshed and hydrated! Now that your skin is balanced, your additional products can rock out! Check out the toners that we at Tres Jolie Medical Spa retail and LOVE!

Hydramucine Treating Mist:

Great for all skin types, especially DEHYDRATED skin types as it helps to boost hydration and refresh the skin!

Sensiderm Treating Mist:

Recommended for sensitive/rosacea skin conditions as it soothes inflammation and calms redness. TIP: Pop it in the fridge for a nice refreshing mist when the skin feels warm! 

Puractive Treating Mist:

It’s oil controlling capacity is great for oily skin types without overdrying. TIP: Spray it inside your mask to curb the maskne!

Schedule your consultation today to determine your skin type and the best skin care regimen for you! Until next time, stay beautiful <3
