Each step of the Full Circle of Skin Conditioning integrates into the next. The sugaring treatment will remove dead skin cells and hair which leaves the skin perfectly prepared to absorb and utilise all the wonderful, nourishing and hydrating ingredients in the Phenomen-all, super-powered with the addition of Restore. When the skin cells are softened and other skin conditions kept at bay, the skin is prepared for easier exfoliation. Exfoliating any excess dry skin build-up primes the skin for the mud application, and allows it to penetrate easier and deeper in order to purge impurities and detoxify the follicles. Now when you return to sugaring, the treatment will be easier, faster and even more effective!
“NO MATTER WHAT PART OF THE CIRCLE YOU START WITH, YOU WILL ALWAYS GAIN IMMENSE BENEFITS SIMPLY BY GETTING STARTED.” -ALEXANDRIA PROFESSIONAL® CEO AND PRESIDENT LINA KENNEDY
The foundational steps of skin care are cleansing, toning and moisturising, and this must be done consistently on a daily basis to maintain skin health. (If you’d like to know more about these steps, you can find more information in the post Full Circle of Skin Conditioning: Daily Care). But did you know that the secret to getting the most from your daily care is actually your weekly care? Regular exfoliation improves the efficacy of the products you apply every day, which means you moisturiser is able to penetrate deep into the skin where it’s needed most and not get stuck in an excess of built-up skin-cells. For optimal skin health and integrity, the following two steps should be incorporated into your home skincare regime on any area you are having sugared, to ensure you get the best results from your treatment.
Exfoliation is the key to vibrant skin. Regular exfoliation removes the hard keratin layer build-up, bringing luminosity and clarity to the skin. For younger skin, exfoliation unplugs pores and keeps the skin clear and smooth.
The Alexandria Professional® Salt Smoothie® is formulated with the highest concentration of round, granular Dead Sea salts. Gently exfoliating with Salt Smoothie® regularly not only helps eliminate unnecessary dead skin cells, but it will also mineralise and hydrate your skin.
Begin by squeezing out the proper amount for the area to be treated. Blend into both palms and begin massaging into dry skin by using small circular motions. Do not wipe off. Soak hands in warm water, shake off excess, and start to massage the Salt Smoothie® into the skin. Repeat until Salt Smoothie® is completely absorbed. Pat dry if you’re not following up with Mud Puddle®. Salt Smoothie is safe and gentle enough to use every day!
Mud Puddle® is comprised of a medicinal blend of natural thermal properties, one of which is Silicon Dioxide. Mud Puddle® contains 60% Silicon Dioxide, which is a building block of collagen from the skin to bone. It is a natural anti-inflammatory that deeply penetrates the skin and clears stored toxins. It will naturally keep your skin brighter and softer. Immediate results are experienced when using Mud Puddle®, which makes it a wonderful addition to your facial skin care home regimen as well.
Three easy ways to benefit from Mud Puddle®:
- Blend with distilled or purified water and apply a thin layer on the desired area. Leave for 10-20 minutes. If the mud dries too quickly, spritz with water to re-hydrate so it continues to “work” – MudPuddle® is only active when wet and is able to be re-wet as many times as desired without losing efficacy.
- Blend with Restore™ Hydrating Lotion to provide a deep hydrating treatment.
- Soak in a bath with ½ cup of Mud Puddle® added to the water.
Maintaining professional and at-home regimes of these treatments is a sure way to improve your skin’s integrity. We recommend starting off using the Full Circle Travel Kit to begin your introduction to the program.
