Facial Oil or Serum?

Facial Oil or Serum?

We are often asked...

How do I use my Oil Nouveau and Hyaluronic Elixir Serum!?

Should I use them AM or PM?
Should I use them together?
Where do they fit in my routine?!
Do I need both of them?

We suggest applying Hyaluronic Elixir Serum in the evening.  At night, your skin goes into repair mode, and while you sleep your skin gets thirsty and needs extra water for repair.  Using the Hyaluronic Elixir Serum opens the door for water hydration.  But, an open door is a two way street.  If the hydration door is open, it can let water in...and out.  That is why we want you to be asleep, and in repair mode, with the least amount of exertion and exposure.

During the day, your skin goes into protect mode, and all day long your skin is working hard to do its job and fend off aggressors.  It needs energy, nutrients, and antioxidants to keep the pace. We love Oil Nouveau during the day because it is a blend of THE strongest antioxidants available and it is absolutely FULL of nutrients that skin converts to energy.

So, what is the best way to incorporate these products into your routine?
Check out our suggestions on when to use these products:
Morning - In the Shower

  1. Soak Konjac Sponge in small bowl in your shower for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Remove the Konjac Sponge from the bowl and squeeze it out. Place a generous scoop of Facial Cleanser in your choice of Lemon Lavender, Orange Grapefruit, or Honey Rosewood, onto the flat side of the Konjac Sponge.  
  3. Gently buff the sponge and cleanser onto face and neck, carefully avoiding the eyes.
  4. Rinse your skin and put the sponge back in the bowl.
  5. Now it is time for Oil Nouveau!  And, YES! We suggest you keep it in the shower! 
  6. Fill the dropper of the Oil Nouveau about 1" full and squeeze the oil onto the palm of your hand. 
  7. Massage the oil in your hands and then massage the oil onto your face, neck, & decollate.
  8. Let the oil steam into your skin.
  9. Continue on with the rest of your shower.
