Gradually, your skin will go through a long process of healing and becoming more balanced.
The first two weeks are what we call the Adjustment Period. You may experience some additional flare ups during this time. It’s important that you only use Exposed Skin Care sparingly during these first two weeks.
Between weeks 2 and 4, your skin should start to heal.You’ll notice old blemishes starting to recover and fewer blemishes altogether.
Between weeks 4 and 8, you’ll see visually noticeable improvements. You will have very few blemishes by this point. Your complexion will be clearer and any redness you may have had will be reduced. Your skin will be slightly smoother than when you started.
By week 10, Exposed Skin Care will be preventing new breakouts. Your complexion will be improved, skin redness will be down, your skin will be smoother, and you’ll notice a reduction in the size of your pores.
Don’t Use Too Much
When it comes to chemicals, less is more.
Using more product won’t speed up results or be better for your skin – quite the opposite, is true actually: it could make your skin worse.
You’ll always want to make sure that you’re not overdoing it on how much product you’re using, but never is this more important than at the beginning. You’ll want to start off using a smaller amount than you’ll be using when your treatment is in full swing. The serums, in particular, will need to be used in moderation.
Be Careful Not to Irritate Your Skin
When you rub, touch, squeeze, or poke your skin, you irritate it. When skin is irritated, it makes your acne worse. When applying product to your skin, be careful not to scrub too hard.
It’s a good idea to be gentle on your skin at all times, but it’s especially important to keep in mind while messing with it to apply various products.
If You Have Dry or Sensitive Skin
Skin that is prone to getting dry or red has a tendency to be sensitive to skin care products. For these skin types, be sure to only use a very small amount, or only use it once every other day.
If You Have Oily Skin
For skin that retains more oil and is more prone to acne, you can afford to use more serum than other skin types can.
That being said, you can’t start off using a lot of serum. Start off with just a dab. Over the first 2-3 weeks, slowly add more serum little by little. Eventually, you might get up to using as much as half a finger length of serum.
For very oily skin types, or types that suffer stubborn acne, you may use the treatment up to twice per day.
Start with the facial cleanser. Wet your face, then lather up a small amount of Facial Cleanser in your hands. Massage onto your skin for 10-15 seconds. Take care to be gentle as we talked about earlier and avoid contact with your eye area.
Rinse your face with lukewarm water.
After rinsing, dry your face by gently patting your skin off with a towel.
After using the Facial Cleanser, use your bare hands to apply a small dab of Clearing Tonic over your face.
As always, avoid contact with your eye area.
Acne Treatment Serum
Before your skin dries from the Clearing Tonic, gently work a small amount of the Acne Treatment Serum over areas of your face that are prone to blemishes.
Don’t pat the Acne Treatment serum with a towel like you would with other products. Instead, let it dry completely, which could take 3-5 minutes.
Make sure to avoid contact with eye area.
In the evening, you’ll want to follow a similar routine to the one you took in the morning. Use the Facial Cleanser and Clearing tonic in exactly the same way as before.
Instead of using the Acne Treatment Serum, use the Clear Pore Serum. Much like with the Acne Treatment, use the Clear Pore Serum while your skin is still wet from the Clearing Tonic.
Apply the Clear Pore Serum over your more blemish-prone area, avoiding your eyes. Allow to dry completely before using any other products.
As an optional 4th step, you can use the Exposed Skin Care Moisture Complex. After completing the other three steps of the treatment plan, either in the morning or evening, wait until your face is completely dry and then lightly dab the Moisture Complex on your skin.
Be sure to only pat the serum on, do not rub. Be gentle on your skin.
