How to use your products

    As you get to know your products you will naturally fall into your own, simple routine. However, if you are new to Helena Lane Skincare it can be helpful to have a guide to get you started.

    If your skin is unbalanced, damaged or suffering you may benefit from following this routine until your skin feels and looks healthier. If your skin is in good health, feel free to experiment and see what suits you best.

    Remember I want you to do less to your skin, not more. Listen to your skin every step of the way and only use what you need. 

    As your skin becomes healthier, you’ll find you will naturally use less product each day; you may not moisturize for a day or need to cleanse every night.. and that’s not just OK, that’s perfect!

    THE ROUTINE

    At the beginning of your day…

    Cleanse:
    Wipe all over your face and neck with simply a warm, wet cloth.

    Layer water:
    Spritz with Hydrating Mist, apply Hyaluronic Serum or simply leave your face damp.

    Layer oil:
    Choose a Face Oil or Moisturizer.
    Apply a couple drops of Face Oil all over your face using fingertips.
    Alternatively, warm a tiny amount of Moisturizer between your fingertips and pat into face and neck, starting where your skin feels driest.
    (Tip: If you can still feel moisturizer on your skin after 5 minutes you have used too much. Our skin only absorbs what it needs.)

     

    At the end of your day…

    Cleanse:
    Hold a warm, damp cloth over your face and neck to soften make-up and dirt and relax your facial muscles.
    Massage a pea size amount of Cleanser into your face and neck and leave for 2-20 minutes (I brush my teeth!).
    Remove the cleanser with the warm, damp cloth.

    When your skin is well balanced you can stop here – no need to use anything else, unless you want to of course!

    Layer water:
    Spritz with Hydrating Mist, apply Hyaluronic Serum or simply leave your face damp.

    Layer oil:
    Warm a tiny amount of Face Oil (a couple of drops), or Moisturizer between your fingertips and pat into face and neck, starting where your skin feels driest.

     

    Once or twice a week…

    Exfoliate/mask:
    Mix mask and exfoliant with water or hydrating mist to form a paste.
    Apply to face and neck in gentle circular motions.
    Wash off immediately or leave for 1 minute (sensitive skin) to 5 minutes (not sensitive).
    Rinse off with cool/warm water and follow with a water layer and then a moisturizer or face oil.
