Routines for your skin type- Miiko Skin Co

February 21, 2016


 

The way you use your Miiko Skin Co Products will change depending on your skin type, the season, and the climate.

Here are a few ways I use the products...

1. General Routine: Your Starting Point

Saving Face Wash + Saving Face Toner + light/moderate application of Face Oil 

  • Here is where you will discover the rate at which your skin will ingest oil.
  • Generally, this is a good daily routine for regular-dry skin types and anyone living in a dryer climate.
  • Women who do not deal with acne or blackheads enjoy this daily routine to help with age prevention, scar treatment, and reducing the signs of sun damage.
  • Suggested products: Saving Face Wash, Saving Face Toner, Glitter Face Oil, Golden Face Oil, & I-Coco

2. Morning Routine: Acne-Prone and Oily Skin Types:

Saving Face Wash + Saving Face Toner

  • This is your go-to routine for acne-prone and oily skin. This is also a great routine for active lifestyles. When you finish sweating at the gym or at a juicy yoga class wash out your pores with the Saving Face Wash, and balance the skin surface with the Saving Face Toner
  • Great for the summer season and more humid climates
  • Women love this routine for smaller pore size and reduced blackheads.
  • Regular use of the Saving Face Toner will provide a natural chemical exfoliation and contribute to a healthy glow of your skin. 
  • Suggested products: Saving Face Wash, Saving Face Toner,


3. Oil Cleansing Method + Toner: All skin types (1-3x per week) 

Gently massage a Miiko Skin Co Face Oil onto a dry face in circular motions, and rinse off using a warm cloth/warm water. Follow with a light use of the Saving Face Toner

  • Oil cleansing is a natural way of cleaning the skin without using any soap at all. After all traditional soap is made using an oil base. 
  • Also, oil cleansing will moisturize the skin and help strengthen the stratum corneum (the top layer of your skin)
  • This method will also help balance oil production on the skin. Letting the skin know it does not need to product anymore oil in the oily zones!
  • Completing this routine with toner will help reduce pore size and balance the skins PH.
  • Suggested products: Saving Face Wash, Saving Face Toner, Glitter Face Oil, Golden Face Oil, & I-Coco

 

2. Physical Exfoliation (DIY 1-2x per week)

Recipes

  1. 5 pumps Face oil + 1/4 c epsom salts 
  2. 1 tsp I-coco + 1/4c morning coffee grounds
  • Using the Saving Face Toner will provide you with chemical exfoliation every day. (learn about the difference between physical and chemical exfoliation here)
  • Physical exfoliation is good for maintaing a healthy young skin tone, however it should not be practiced more than 2 times per week. Do not practice physical exfoliation if you suffer from severe bacterial acne inflammation. It is just spread the bacteria around. 

Tips:

  • Let the epsom salts sit on your face to allow minerals to absorb into the skins surface. Helps to support mineral balance in the skin.
  • Apple the coffee grounds under the eyes to bring circulation to the surface of the skin and reduce dark circles under the eyes.
