Our knowledge and understanding of how the skin maintains, heals and protects itself has evolved expeditiously. We know that each and every step in our skincare routine is very important for the overall health of the skin and its ability to utilize nutrients.
When a skin problem arises, we often look to certain products and impatiently want to start in the middle, or even at the end with tonics, creams or serums only to find disappointment, thinking the product is at fault when actually our impatience is the culprit. How we use skincare products, and in what order, makes a big difference in the results we can achieve.
When the skin is reactive, inflamed or compromised by bacteria, pollutants, dirt, hormone imbalance or an autoimmune response, it is not able to properly receive the benefits of your skincare regimen. We need to take the appropriate steps to cleanse, calm and soothe the skin BEFORE asking it to receive nourishment and supplementation. Once the skin has been cleansed, we then need to signal it to stop "releasing" and prepare it to "receive".
We believe that artisan skincare truly is an art form that creates a special synergy between formulas and the skin. The right ingredients used correctly activate and enhance the skin's natural aliveness and bring balance and harmony. In order to awaken your skin's natural processes, we have broken our line into three simple steps.
The idea is not that you need to use all these products in your daily routine, but that you find your favorite(s) in each step, learn to work with your skin and listen to its needs. By paying attention to application order and utilizing proper application techniques (yes, every product should be applied in a specific way) your skin will get the most out of these powerful natural ingredients.
STEP 1 / Release
Our cleansing formulas have a gentle, yet deep cleansing action designed to increase the metabolic rate of your skin's cells and eliminate dead skin build up, bacteria and environmental pollution.
ASHES Reincarnation Cleansing Grains
As Ashes transforms into a foamy silky fluid, it deep cleans dirt, daily pollution and bacteria from your lovely skin. It won't strip your skin of its natural oils or disrupt its delicate pH balance.
SAND Red Mineral Polish
The yucca root in our Sand does the heavy lifting to soften and unclog pores as the red mineral crystals act as a gentle sweeper to lift and remove the brittle dead skin barrier.
RAIN Replenishing Oil Wash
As it effectively clears dirt, toxins and balances oil production, Rain strengthens and encourages your skin’s natural processes, allowing it to release, balance and heal.
STEP 2 / Restore
Our restoration products have a strong drawing effect with an inherent hydraulic action that removes any residue left behind during the cleansing process. They draw the skin’s own moisturizing fluids and natural nutrients outward to replenish the surface, dramatically increasing its moisture barrier, leaving the skin absorbent and able to accept the healing nutrients of repair and rejuvenation.
BREEZE Revival Mist
Toners are the forgotten Hero that is left behind when they are actually the key to everything working effectively. After cleansing, your skin is in an excited state from removing and releasing. Breeze cools and calms your skin, bringing it into a place of balance to receive much needed hydration and nourishment. Without this step, your serums and creams are stopped at the surface level.
PURITY Perfectly Clear Skin Tonic
Rich in ionized minerals, alkaline solutions and anti-fungal properties, Purity leaves your skin feeling alive, purified, clear and calm.
HONEY BEE Blossoming Revelation Mask
Our wild desert honey acts with a hydraulic motion, moving throughout the upper levels of the skin to rebuild moisture levels. This mask effectively allows the natural fluids to move up into the dry outer level to hydrate, smooth and soften the skin.
STEP 3 / Receive
We've created moisturizers to repair, lubricate and protect the skin’s surface with light, porous regenerating moisture. They activate the skin’s natural resources to work more efficiently and proactively. Each enlivened formula is designed to brighten and strengthen skin tone leaving the skin bright, clear and firm. These wild desert formulas not only support the skin's natural rhythms but also form a protective shield to guard against cellular damage.
HONEY DEW Youth Nectar
The application of our serum is as important as the ingredients. Serums are a high concentration of cellulose fluid rich in nutrients and healing ingredients designed to boost your facial cream and create a protective porous shield between your skin and the environment. Place a small amount of Honey Dew onto your fingertips and apply with light tapping motions. Begin tapping at the forehead and follow the bone structure around the eyes, cheek bones, nose and chin line, on the neck and chest. Finish with a light sweeping motion, as if you are removing dust from your face, to complete the application. The purpose of this step is to heighten the benefits of the ingredients and signal your skin to pull the concentrated healing ingredients deep into the layers of the skin. The goal is to firm the skin’s natural contours, giving definition to the facial structure. This application method activates your moisture barrier to restore resilient skin tone and vibrance.
CLARITY Awakening Face Cream
After you have applied Honey Dew, rub a small dab of Clarity between your palms and place your hands lightly over your face with a soft caress. Your delicate facial tissue will delight in the cool, velvety, deep moisture of this ultra luxurious face cream. Its "awakening" power creates a clear, rosy glow and healthy happy skin.
STARRY EYES Brightening Eye Cream
Packed with a healthy dose of vitamins, minerals, humectants, antioxidants and free radical scavengers, Starry Eyes repairs the skin's natural defense system to guard against environmental stress. This intense therapy formula promotes blood circulation, cell reconstruction and deep hydration. Your beautiful eyes will be smoother, brighter and refreshed.
