Step 1 to Clear Skin: Cleanse
Clean skin is happy skin. Keep your skin clean from the outside with our Face Facts Clear Control Cleanser. Wash your face at night to remove perspiration, grime and the excess oil that has accumulated during the day. Don't over wash your face as you will strip your skin of its essential oils, triggering your skin to produce even more oil.
Clear your skin from the inside with Rooibos & Ginger tea to flush toxins and to improve blood circulation. This tea is packed with antioxidants that contribute to healthy skin at the cell level. Don't forget you can also rinse your face with Rooibos & Ginger infused water to banish bacteria that cause pimples. Simply drop a teabag or two into warm water in your sink, let it infuse the water, and then rinse your skin.
Step 2 to Clear Skin: Exfoliate
My husband struggled with excessive oil production on his skin and these two changes were the turning point for him. The first was switching to Annique Rooibos products and the other was exfoliating regularly. We recommend using Annique's Essense Enzymatic Exfoliator with fruit enzymes and bamboo beads at least twice a week. Be sure to exfoliate when your skin is particularly oily, for example, after sport, hiking or working out. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells and prevents dirt from clogging pores.
Step 3 to Clear Skin: Masque
Why masque? Applying a masque soothes the skin and reduces inflammation. Annique's Face Facts Charcoal Mud Masque contains cooling camphor to calm irritation and bring relief to the skin. Its detoxifying charcoal acts like a magnet to help absorb toxins and impurities thereby preventing breakouts and keeping your skin clean and acne free. For maximum benefit, masque once a week.
Step 4 to Clear Skin: Detox
I cannot say enough about Annique's Essense Skin Clear to deal with breakouts and blemishes. It is my go-to product to deal decisively with clogged pores and pimples. Apply it regularly to keep pores clear, and use this product to target individual pimples and breakouts clearing them up in double quick time.
It's like a detox for your skin!
Step 5 to Clear Skin: Nourish
Nourish and support your skin's own healing process with Annique's Essense Liquid Skin Nutrition. This Rooibos-infused spray with vitamins is ideal for acne and problem skin as it both nourishes the skin and cleanses pores deep down promoting a clearer, spot-free appearance. Spray onto your skin morning and evening to eliminate skin impurities.
Step 6 to Clear Skin: Moisturize
Did you know that the key to eliminating acne is to moisturize your skin? Yes, you heard me, moisturize your skin. Using the correct moisturizer for your skin relieves skin stress and allows your skin to balance its own oil production. Of course, we recommend Annique's Face Facts Clear Control Moisturizer.
