To select a skin care routine, we highly recommend booking a facial with a knowledgeable, certified professional at Spa Serenity or any of the Baraboo or Wisconsin Dells area spas . Our Estheticians have the experience and training to recommend professional treatments that boost your results as well as educated guidance for your home skin care routine.
To enhance your knowledge, we’ve compiled the essential steps for a skin care routine as well as additional recommendations tailored to your unique skin type and concerns.
1. Cleanse | Twice per day, morning and night.
A thorough cleanse clears your skin of oil and debris that can lead to clogged pores and dullness. It also prepares your complexion for further treatment, making it easier for your skin to absorb the beneficial ingredients in the rest of your routine.
2. Tone: Essence, Facial Mist or Toner | Twice per day, morning and night.
Toning completes the cleansing process by conditioning your skin and adding beneficial vitamins and minerals to your complexion. Unlike alcohol-based toners of the past, today’s toners, essences and facial mists support the effectiveness of your cleanser by adding replenishing ingredients that support your skin’s health. Cleansing and toning work together like shampoo and conditioner: Both steps help keep the skin as healthy as possible.
3. Exfoliate | Once or twice per week.
Exfoliating is essential to encourage healthy skin cell turnover, eliminate buildup and relieve pore congestion. Exfoliants comprise gentle chemical, enzymatic and physical varieties for home care, as well as more potent peels and treatments which must be administered by a professional. We recommend consulting with your esthetician to determine the best approach for your skin type and concerns.
4. Mask | Once or twice per week.
An additional treatment to indulge in is a face mask. Face masks contain high amounts of concentrated vitamins and nutrient-rich ingredients which absorb efficiently into the skin, making it appear healthy and resilient. In addition to their hydrating and firming benefits, masks can be used to control more persistent skin concerns like acne, large pores and dark spots.
5. Treat: Serum, Concentrate or Facial Oil | Twice per day, morning and night.
Your daily routine should include a serum, concentrate or facial oil. These potent formulas contain concentrated amounts of active ingredients to target concerns and neutralize the effects of environmental stressors.
6. Eye Care | Twice per day, morning and night.
Some areas require a lighter touch. The skin around your eye area is seven times thinner than the rest of your face and needs to be treated with special care. Regular eye cream application not only maintains the health, thickness and elasticity of this delicate area, it also reduces the look of fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness.
