&
The Facial Steam Cloth
The Facial Steam Cloth

Frequency: daily

The Ritual:

If it feels good, skip a morning cleanser altogether, massaging instead with warm water only or The Jasmine Garden, or introduce The Facial Steam Cloth to cocoon skin with gentle love. Press and repeat until skin is soft and cleansed before rinsing.


If you are particularly wiry, sensitive, or prone to ingrown hairs, heat The Facial Steam Cloth and pair with The Pendulum Potion prior to shaving. Massage The Pendulum Potion into dry skin, then wet hands and continue massage. Place The Facial Steam Cloth over face and neck and leave for 10 seconds. Press and repeat until skin is soft and cleansed before rinsing, then proceed to shaving.

Every 2nd or 3rd day, introduce The Clean Dirt to brighten, decongest, and free any dead skin or trapped hairs. Check out this Instagram post for important tips to make the very most of your experience. Blend The Clean Dirt with The Pendulum Potion on days your skin feels stressed, sensitive, or you are in need of more delicate care.

product:
The Problem Solver

$100.00
Frequency: twice weekly

The Ritual:

Indulge in a full treatment masque with The Problem Solver, waking up skin and encouraging cell turnover. Be sure to use enough powder to reach a rich, bubbling mousse  consistency - at least ½ -1 true tablespoon - blending with just shy of equal parts water. Watch a great demo video here.

step 4: Moisturize

product:
The Blue Cocoon
The Blue Cocoon
$180.00
&
The Youth Dew
The Youth Dew
$140.00
Frequency: twice daily

The Ritual:

After every cleansing or treatment, feed and hydrate skin immediately with The Blue Cocoon and/or The Youth Dew. Always massage both into WET skin. Skip your towel and go directly from rinsing to oils, while skin is still warm and most receptive. Don’t neglect the eye area and your lips!

step 5: Mist

product:
The Jasmine Garden
The Jasmine Garden
$70.00
Frequency: throughout the day

The Ritual:

Complete your cleansing ritual by saturating skin with The Jasmine Garden and continuing your massage. This game-changing formula enhances penetration and assimilation of everything that came before it, enabling the best possible absorption of both fat and water-soluble nutrients. This makes a world of difference for "oil-averse" and acne-prone complexions. Mist throughout the day to calm and refresh skin.

Bonus Tips

Simple can be just right. If it feels good for you, skip a morning cleanser altogether, massaging instead with warm water only or just a generous misting of The Jasmine Garden, finishing with The Blue Cocoon (which also happens to be magic for razor burn or irritation!). Between these two and regular shaving, your needs may be perfectly met.

My own husband uses nothing but The Youth Dew and The Clean Dirt and his skin now is better than when we met over a decade ago. When you find your right fit, things can get a lot less complicated.
