mature skin

Identifying your skin type is essential in developing a daily care and treatment program that will help you maintain clear, healthy, radiant skin.

For a skin care program to be the most effective, your regimen of cleansing, toning, moisturizing and specialized treatments must be tailored to your own unique skin.

Over time skin loses its elasticity, and expression lines begin to appear. More mature skin can appear rough, coarse and even multi-colored due to melanin deposits.

The aging process can be managed through diet, exercise, sleep (to rejuvenate tissue) and avoidance of sun exposure. Maintaining a daily skin care program, specifically tailored to mature skin, can keep skin softer, smoother and healthier.

cleanse

Cleanse twice a day with a glycolic acid wash to reduce dead skin cells, improve skin texture, and promote brighter skin.

mask
