Skin Care Instructions

When you first purchase Cosmedix Skin Care products, all the amazing options may seem a little overwhelming! And whilst it’s not a difficult range to navigate and use, I have put together this page so new and regular clients can pop in and check how to use their products if they have a mental blank!!

Cleansers

Purity Solution

This oil pre-cleanser is beautiful for sensitised, dry and aged skins. It removed excess oil, makeup and SPF easily and quickly.  Dispense a 20c coin size into the palm of you hand. Without mixing it with water, massage it into your face for about 20-30 seconds. If you have congestion on your nose, focus on that area for a further 20 seconds. Remove the cleanser with a soft flannel, make sure you focus around the hairline, under the jaw and behind the ears. You can then cleanse again with this or use another specialised cleanser for your second cleanse. This cleanser should not be used over the eyes if you have false lashes on.

Benefit Clean

Our most popular cleanser, it’s suitable for all skin types and contains antioxidants to reduce irritation and prevent stripping, whilst providing a deep, effective cleanse. Dispense 2-3 pumps into the palm of you hand. Without mixing it with water, massage it into your face for about 30-60 seconds. Then wet your hands and massage for a further 30 seconds. If you have congestion on your nose, focus on that area for a further 20 seconds. Remove the cleanser with a soft flannel, make sure you focus around the hairline, under the jaw and behind the ears. If you’re wearing makeup, two cleanses are recommended. This cleanser is fine to use over the eye area and will not cause irritation.

Crystal Cleanse

This is the Creme de la Creme of cleansers! Containing liquid crystal technology, prickly pear and coconut oil, it gently and effectively removes all the days debris from your skin. Dispense 2-3 pumps into your wet hands and lather over your face and neck. Gentle enough to go over the eye area to remove makeup. Work the nose area well. Remove with a soft flannel.

This cleanser works best alongside Purity Solution.

Purity Clean

This is a concentrated exfoliating cleanser suitable for oily, congested and acne skins. It works very well to break down makeup and also works extremely well after Purity Solution. Dispense 2-3 pumps into the palm of your hand and massage it into your face. Great for removing long lasting makeup and lipstick. Wet hands and continue to massage, paying extra attention to any congested areas. Remove well with a soft flannel.

If you’re using this cleanser as an exfoliator, just leave it on your skin for an extra 5-7 minutes 2-3 times a week. Remember the cooling sensation is normal and make sure you remove thoroughly.

Clarify

This is an exfoliating cleanser for problematic skins. Dispense 1 pump into your hand and massage it into the skin for about 20 seconds after your have first cleansed any makeup off with a different cleanser. Focus around the lips, chin and nose as dead cell build up in those areas create a thickened look to the skin and appears more congested than is necessary. Remove with a soft flannel. This cleanser is not suitable for use over the eye area.

Toners (Benefit & Purity)

Although these aren’t really toners, Cosmedix mists are very specific and actually assist in hydrating and treating the skin. They are also perfect for using during the day to re-hydrate and re-treat the skin. After cleansing and before serum application, spray 2-3 times into the palm of your hand and massage into your face and neck. During the day, spritz over your makeup 2-3 times to reset and rehydrate. Do NOT get purity balance in the eye area!

Treatment Serums

By far the most potent products in the Cosmedix range, these powerhouses are specifically designed to address every skin type and condition. However they are all used the same. Your Therapist will advise you on WHEN to use your serums as some are specific to either day or night.

After cleansing and misting, use 1-2 pumps of your serum and massage into your face and neck. If your skin is still dewy from your cleanse/mist then it will go further. Don’t just apply to dry skin as you’ll need more……and you remember how expensive your serums were don’t you!!

Eye Products

For the absolute best results for the eye area, your Therapist would have recommended Eye Genius. Squeeze the tube GENTLY until a drop appears at the end of the tip, use your ring finger to transport it to under your eyes and massage gently around the eye area. Any excess can be massaged into your lips. Always keep away from the lid area and the tear duct area. If you start forming milia in the area, you know you’re using too much or you need a lighter cream. If this happens, speak to your Therapist.

Retinol Treatments

All Vitamin A serums/creams are used the same. At night only and AFTER you’ve cleansed, misted and used your Vitamin C. Dispense 1-2 pumps and massage into your face, staying away from your eye area and sides of the nose. Retinol has the ability to “creep” which means it will move around by iteslf through the cells even if you don’t put it in a certain area. Retinol must be removed in the morning and your day creams can then be applied with SPF if required.

Bakuchiol is an oil, so can be used AM or PM with only a few drops needed to cover the face and neck area.

Moisturisers

Moisturisers in most ranges are the Main Event, however in Cosmedix they are simply the final act in a series of Main Events. Specific to your skin type, each moisturiser is used the same – dispense a 1c coin size into your fingers and massage into your face and neck. Your skin should still be damp from the mists and serums and be able to glide easily. Any excess can be used on the back of your hands. If you’re not using the Hydrate + SPF then after your morning moisturiser you would apply your separate SPF if required.

Illuminate & Lift is used at night time on the neck and decollete area only.
