daily / weekly

Cleansing - Washing your face is essential for removing dirt, oil and debris. Remove impurities by washing twice daily for most skin types.

Moisturizing - Keep your skin hydrated by moisturizing twice daily or as needed. A moisturizer will help keep your skin balanced.

Exfoliating - A gentle exfoliator helps remove excess sebum and dead skin cells to make way for glowing new skin underneath. Start with once per week and then see what your skin needs. To go one step further, consider adding a weekly mask. Find one that suits your specific skin goals.


Professional Visits - Just like taking care of your teeth, it's important to supplement you at-home regimen with regularly-scheduled professional visits. A deep cleansing, exfoliating and hydrating treatment will enhance the work you're doing.

- One treatment that covers all of these (and is #1 recommended professional treatment among skin health professionals) is HydraFacial, perfect for any skin type and customizable for any need, goal or issue.

- According to a survey of skin health professionals, most recommend getting a HydraFacial every 4-8 weeks, depending on your individual needs. To find out what schedule works best for you - and how to personalize your treatment for best results - take HydraFacial's Skin Health Assessment.

Medical-Grade Products - You can also talk to your aesthetician about upgrading to medical grade products and enhancing your regimen with other skin health treatments.


Dermatologist - Regardless of skin type, it is important to visit a dermatologist at least once per year for a full body skin scan.

That's it! It may seem like a lot of parts and pieces, but the good news is, these are all small, simple steps that can work together to give you the healthiest and best looking skin of your life.
