  2. Skincare Rules

 

Washing your face used to be a simple bedtime routine. But with the arrival of Instagram influencers posting their 10-step skincare routines, it could be quite confusing and frustrating to decide on which product and which routine to follow.

Luckily for you, we have a simple, 3-step skincare routine that you can adhere to. Our Ivy Leaf Skincare products uses ivy leaf extract as the hero ingredient. It has properties that are known to tone and tighten skin, reduce redness, and combat signs of aging.

How to use the 3-Step System:

1. Start by cleansing your skin with the Purifying Oil Cleanser.


Our purifying oil cleanser is uniquely formulated with ivy leaf extract to decrease inflammation and deliver a soft, glowing complexion. Our formula removes oil-based impurities, including sunscreen, makeup and everyday pollutants.
Directions: 

Apply 3-4 pumps of purifying oil cleanser to your dry skin and gently massage over your face.
Add lukewarm water and continue to massage to activate the foaming element. Rinse away with warm water and pat dry with a towel.

2. Immediately following the cleansing process, apply the Ivy Leaf Extract Concentrated Serum.


This high-concentrated formula (14% hedera helix extract) is designed to treat problematic skin and prepare for the moisturization products.
The MVP of our skincare routine. Combining ivy leaf extract with a specialized blend of antioxidants and moisture-binding ingredients, our serum addresses signs of aging and leaves the skin soft, plump and hydrated.


Directions:

Apply a dime-sized amount onto your clean, dry skin over the entire face and neck. Allow serum to fully absorb before applying a moisturizer.

3. Follow with the Restorative Moisturize to the face and neck.


Recognized as both anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory, ivy leaf extract is a naturally purifying plant ideal for restoring damaged skin. Our carefully crafted formula delivers deep hydration and reduces wrinkles, leaving the skin looking refreshed and renewed.

     

    Directions:

    • Apply a quarter-sized amount of cream to your fingertips and apply to your entire face and neck. 
    • Gently massage into skin, taking care not to pull or tug.

      Skincare Rules

      #1: Use only lukewarm or cool water. Never, ever use hot water. It can cause skin irritation and/or pimples. 

      #2: DO NOT forget your neck and chest whenever you do your routine. They are as important as your face. Buy yourself a v-neck shirt and use it as your skincare shirt.

      #3: Consistency is the key. There will never be a product that will work by using it once or twice. It should be a routine. It should be done daily for at least a month. These products need time to show their effect. The only exception, of course, is if it is irritating your skin. Then, stop using it asap.
