The Skin Suite ~ How we love to use them, or it's a little refresher if you're already familiar with Qēt.
We know that keeping our Qēt routine quick and effective is important. If it takes too long to do the routine we won't do it. If it doesn't work, then what's the point?
It also has to be safe to use, and we should enjoy using it. This is where the fresh botanicals come in.
Here's how we love to use our Skin Suites. It's the same whether it's the full sized treatments, or if it's one of the Getting Started Facial Kits.
Step 1: How to Use our Cleansing Oils
It's good, clean (fresh!) fun! We formulate each treatment to benefit a different complexion. The treatments can be helpful for oily complexions (yes, even oily skin benefits from using a cleansing oil properly), combination and comfortable, and dry or dehydrated skin conditions.
👉 To use, massage 2-4 pumps of cleansing oil directly onto the face, neck, and even the décolletage. You can apply your cleansing oil directly over any makeup, sunscreen, sweat, or any dirt you've picked up during the day.
You can have your face slightly damp or dry when applying your cleansing oil ~ your preference. Here's the important part. Remove your cleansing oil completely with a wet washcloth or cotton pad. Rinse and repeat if necessary.
Oil removes oil, and in doing so, it offers a COMPLETE cleanse without over-stripping the skin. Makeup, sunscreen, impurities, pollution ~ they'll all be cleansed away. There's no need to wash your face afterward ~ you're already done.
You can apply your cleansing oil as an eye makeup remover for non-waterproof mascara and eye makeup. Or, we have an eye makeup remover here that we love... your option. 😍
Step 2: Exfoliate
Choose the a clay option in the Skin Suite, for skin that has congestion and clogged pores. Choose the herbal option for more of a gentle surface exfoliation. Each of the two exfoliant options in our Skin Suites offer both gentle physical exfoliation from the botanicals and organic ingredients, and they offer a natural chemical exfoliation, from the plant enzymes and natural glycolic acids from the plant ingredients.
👉 To use, pour a tiny bit into the palm of your hand and add plain tap water. This will wake up the actives and ingredients in the exfoliant. Mix the exfoliant with the water and gently apply to your face. Remember our neck and décolletage can benefit from this step as well. Rinse with water to remove. It's important to hydrate (tone) and moisturize (serum) after every exfoliation.
We prefer to exfoliate at night and use the toner and night serum immediately. Then, while we're resting, our skin has a chance to restore itself and drink in the nutrients without fighting the day and the elements. But... if the morning is a better time for you, then that's the best time for you, which is better than no time at all. 👌
Step 3: Tone
Just a mist or two of our botanical toners is all that's needed. It's an important step to maintain the proper pH level of our skin, and it's a perfect pairing with our day or night serums to help them penetrate and spread on the skin.
Our toners add hydration to the skin, which is different than moisturizing and is oh-so-necessary.
👉 To use, add the mist or two to your hand, shake and add 2-5 drops of your day or night serum to it. Blend them together and massage onto your skin.
You control the level of hydration and moisture your skin is asking for based on the amount of toner and serum that you mix together. This can be customized for you and your skin ~ it can depend on your current complexion, your age, and even where you live and the time of the year.
Steps 4 and 5: Day and Night Serums
Our serums are different than just adding an oil to the complexion. Each serum is a blend of carefully selected plant actives, phyto-nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants to address various skin needs. Additionally, rather than using a synthetic or animal-based hyaluronic acid, we use organic plant humectants to maintain the moisture level of our skin.
👉 To use, it's REALLY important to shake your serums well. There are heavier and lighter viscosities of ingredients that naturally separate. After shaking them, add a mist or two of your toner with your 2-5 well-shaken drops of your day or night serum in the palm of your hand. Massage them together and apply directly to your skin, neck, and décolletage area. Anything left over can really benefit the thin skin on the tops of our hands as well.
We also like to remind people to empty the dropper when putting the cap back on the serums. This will prevent the actives from prematurely softening the dropper top which is meant to be pulled apart and recycled when finished. Then when you're ready to use the serum next time, you're shaking the entire bottle of goodness.
Remember that you can easily customize these quick steps according to your skin's needs. Add or take-away the amount of toner and serums as needed.
Oils work beautifully with our skin ~ oil is already a component of healthy skin. BUT... keep in mind that not all oils are good for skin, but there are many oils that are GREAT for skin!
This is the reason we have the variety of formulas that we do.
Our skin depends on us to adjust our care as we see fit. Having the ability to adjust the hydration and moisture to take care of our skin is easy and effective with our Skin Suites.
Bonus Option: Vitamin Serum Boosts
Our Purely Suite Serum Boosts are very different than our serums and are meant to boost them, not take the place of them.
They're naturally rich in Vitamins A, C, F, E, and even K. Rather than use a water-filled vitamin boost that includes a powdered vitamin and a mixture of synthetic preservatives, we've selected a few oils that are naturally rich in the variety of vitamins and antioxidants that our skin drinks up and loves. No harmful side effects, nothing synthetic or potentially harmful.
👉 To use, add a pump before or after using your day or night serum. We love to use the Purely Cranberry Serum Boost with our day serums, and the Purely Rosehip Serum Boost with the night serums. The Purely Squalane Serum Boost can be combined with any and all of these boosts and serums, and it's also a fantastic alternative to the silicone-filled makeup primers out there. Mix and match to see what feels the best to you. They all play well together.
🍅 I've said that that our vitamin serum boosts are like an organic and delicious tomato. The tomato can be wonderful all by itself. However, when we mix that organic and beautifully-ripened garden heirloom tomato with additional fresh and delicious garden delights, it suddenly becomes the most delicious salsa, or gazpacho, or pomodoro. I think you get the idea. 😋
