Skin Care Instructions

When you first purchase Circadia 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

Amondola

This milk cleanser is beautiful for sensitised, dry and aged skins. It’s also the perfect cleanser to pair with the salicylic cleanser if you have breakouts as it’s not drying at all. 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. If you’re wearing makeup, two cleanses are recommended.

Lipid Replacing

Our most popular cleanser, it’s suitable for most skin types and is a enzymatic cleanser which needs to be used dry on the skin before mixing with water so that the enzymes are activated. Dispense a 20c coin size 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.

Salycylic

I would recommend this cleanser for the PM cleanse, as it’s quite active and continued use AM and PM may result in some dryness. If you’re not wearing makeup, use a 20c coin size with wet hands (can be done in the shower) to massage into the face – focussing on the areas with breakouts – for about 30 seconds. Work the nose area well. Remove with a soft flannel.

If you’re wearing makeup then I suggest using one of the other cleansers first, as this cleanser can irritate the eye area when needing to remove eye makeup.

Vitamin Veil

This is an oil cleanser and it’s fantastic for dry skin, change of seasons and also after a series of treatments. Used in conjunction with another cleanser, it works very well to breakdown makeup – almost like a pre cleanse. It does leave a fine “veil” on the skin so this is why some clients do a second cleanse so they don’t have that feeling. Dispense a 20c coin size into the palm of your hand and massage it into your face. Work the eye area if wearing makeup and the lip area if your lipstick sticks. Remove well with a soft flannel and follow with a second cleanser if desired.

Micro Honey

This is an exfoliating cleanser with micro beads to gently exfoliate a few times a week or every day (if you like to exfoliate every day and your skin can tolerate it). It’s not stripping or rough which is why it CAN be used daily if clients desire. Not great for removing eye makeup due to the exfoliating action, however it can be paired with another cleanser to fix this problem. Dispense a 20c coin size into your hand and massage it into the skin for about 40-60 seconds, or until you can no longer feel the beads on the skin (they melt after a little while). 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 aged than is necessary. Remove with a soft flannel and ensure any remaining beads are off the skin.

Mists

Although these aren’t toners, Circadia 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. 

Serums

By far the most potent products in the Circadia 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 drops 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 the Big Three….Emergency Eye Serum and the AM/PM force of Full Circle. One drop of Emergency Eye Serum will be plenty for both eyes and massage gently. Any excess can be massaged into your lips. Then depending on the time of day, dispense less than a grain of rice size of Full Circle and massage into the eye area gently. Any remaining product can then be massaged into the lip area.

Moisturiser

Moisturisers in most ranges are the Main Event, however in Circadia 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 pump 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 Light Day SPF then after your morning moisturiser you would apply your SPF. 

If you’re using Night Repair, Night Repair Plus, Rose-ease or any of the specific night creams then you would use them as often as your Therapist has requested. For example, if you’re new to Night Repair Plus then you may only be using it every 3rd night to start with….in this case you would have another moisturiser to use in between. If you’ve been recommended the Vitamin A Gel then you will only use it on the area your Therapist has recommended.
