How to Use an Epionce Regimen

The right order for a skin care routine

When using a daily skin care regimen, it’s important you know how to use products in the correct order to ensure you’re getting the best results. But it can be a complicated: from mixing and layering to applying a long list of serums and creams, a skin care routine may seem complex. Understanding the proper order to apply your skin care products will help you achieve best results.

Why Is A Daily Skin Care Regimen Important?

Using a regimen every day helps maintain the appearance of healthy-looking skin. It also helps support the outermost layer of the skin responsible for protection. Like brushing your teeth, applying products daily is the best way to getting great results from your skin care routine. Start by talking to your Epionce skin care professional.  With years of training and product knowledge, they will give you the best advice to address all of your skin concerns.

Applying Products in the Proper Order

Epionce products were created to work best when used in a specific order. Applying your skin care regimen in the right order ensures products work correctly. When following a regimen, you are preparing your skin to receive the best benefit from ingredients in the remaining products. The best way to use Epionce is to start with a cleanser, then follow with correcting products to help clean pores and smooth uneven texture and skin tone. Serums and moisturizers will follow, and a sunscreen is important to finish a morning skin care routine. Avoid mixing products, but layer one at a time with lighter formulas like serums first, followed by heavier products such as creams.

Begin with Cleanse & Prepare

You will experience best results using a cleanser for your specific skin type, but you can adjust based on your preference – whether a creamy, foaming or gel cleanser.

  • Milky Lotion Cleanser is best for dry/sensitive or mature skin types. The creamy moisturizing cleanser leaves skin feeling clean and hydrated and soothes delicate skin.
  • Gentle Foaming Cleanser is ideal for normal/combination skin and the go-to cleanser for most skin types. The lightly foaming face wash effectively removes dirt, oil and makeup without causing it to feel dry, tight or stripped of natural protective oils.
  • Lytic Gel Cleanser is best for oily/problem-prone skin. The multiple NewBeauty® Beauty Choice Award winning gel cleanser is a fan-favorite for the cooling, calming feeling it leaves on skin and its effectiveness for blemish-prone and oily skin types.
  • Purifying Wash prevents and treats adult acne with a combination of Spearmint, Willow Bark Extract and salicylic acid that helps clean pores, control blemishes and prevent new breakouts from forming.

 Why Use A Toner?

Toners are usually a skipped step, but this simple product can round out any skin care routine and prep the skin for the next steps.

  • Balancing Toner is packed with humectants to help dry skin hold onto much needed hydration.
  • Purifying Toner incorporates Willow Bark Extract to help control visible shine and clean out pores to prevent blemishes.

Correcting Imperfections

Correct & Boost products address specific skin concerns like aging, visible redness and blemishes. When added to a regimen, these powerful treatment products speed up the effectiveness of the regimen. A Lytic for your skin type can be used as part of a morning and evening skin care regimen. The lotion-like product acts similarly to a retinoid cream to help calm visible redness, reduce blemishes and has anti-aging benefit.

As part of the Correct & Boost step, MelanoLyte Skin Brightening System helps reduce the visible appearance of unwanted dark spots and uneven skin tone. The hydroquinone-free system consists of MelanoLyte Tx, a lotion-like product for day and night use; and MelanoLyte Pigment Perfection Serum, a lightweight serum for your evening routine. Products work together to help brighten and even out skin tone.

To really enhance a natural glow, add Enriched Firming Mask to your evening regimen one to two times weekly. The rich, hydrating mask calms redness and leaves skin looking rejuvenated and bright.

Choosing a Renewal

The truth is that moisturizers are not all the same, and this step alone can help or hinder results. Epionce Renewal facial products provide skin with active complexes to help reverse imperfections and are formulated with the proper ratios of naturally occurring lipids the skin needs to function properly. This includes signature Epionce botanical ingredients to calm skin and reduce visible redness, as well as hyaluronic acid to enhance the appearance of elasticity and hydration.

Looking for even more hydration and rejuvenation? Intensive Nourishing Cream gives skin even maximum hydration and anti-aging benefit! Key complexes help reverse damage caused by years of sun exposure and hold in moisture. Use Intensive Nourishing Cream as an anti-aging night moisturizer to help reverse the visible appearance photodamage for more radiant, supple and smooth skin.

Before your Renewal, apply Intense Defense Serum to help improve visible signs of aging, dullness and smooth skin. This lightweight, quick-absorbing multivitamin serum is packed with nourishing botanicals and hyaluronic acid to enhance skin’s youthful appearance and helps skin hold onto moisture for a natural, healthy glow.

Protect & Prevent Damaged Skin

Finally, a good regimen always includes a sunscreen in the morning! Applying sunscreen year-round is essential to help guard against damaging UV rays and the visible effects on the skin. Epionce Ultra Shield SPF 50 goes on sheer under foundation or can be used on its own. For a tinted sunscreen or as a primer under foundation, Daily Shield Tinted SPF 50 is best before applying makeup.

Getting Started on A Regimen

The most important step in achieving beautiful, healthy-looking skin is to get started on a consistent skin care regimen. While you don’t have to worry about doing damage from using any Epionce products, to ensure you experience incredible results start by talking to an Epionce Professional who help you create a complete skin care routine. They can help ensure you have confidence you’re using the best products for your unique skin needs, and you will see the most benefit from a consistent regimen.
