ABOUT YOUR SKIN
Skin Type: Normal to dry skin
What is a skin type?
Describes how your skin is functioning. There are four common skin types: Oily, Combination, Normal, or Dry. Due to a host of influences, you skin type can change, so keeping up with your skin type with regular re-testing is important.
Discovering your skin type:
The bare-face method involves washing your face mild, gentle cleanser then pat dry. Refrain from applying any other products. After 30 minutes, observe your skin.
If shiny throughout - oily skin
If tight and flaky - dry skin
If a mix of oily and dryness, especially in your t-zone - combination skin
If hydrated and comfortable - normal skin
The blotting sheet method involves pressing a clean blotting sheet to the skin. Be sure to cleanse first with a mild, gentle cleanser, pat dry and allow to rest for 30 minutes. Hold the sheet up to the light to observe the oil markings.
If an abundance of oil - oily skin
If little to no oil -dry skin
If small amounts of oil from your t-zone - combination skin
If minimal oil - normal skin
Skin Concerns: Dryness, dehydration
Less sebum, an oily substance produced by the body to retain moisture to the skin, leads to dry skin. Dry skin lacks the necessary lipids (fats) needed to retain moisture and build a protective shield against external influences. Leading to a compromised barrier function.
Melanin rich skin tones tends to be more susceptible to dry skin as it lacks ceramides, fatty molecules that make up the outer barrier of your skin, preventing water loss.
SOOTHE is recommended to moisten skin with gentle, soothing ingredients that hydrate and provide relief to dry skin.

What is SOOTHE Face Serum?
Face serums are designed to offer a bigger impact to your skin care routine. Serums provide a great amount of active ingredients compared to a cleanser.
What is the benefit of using a facial serum?
Serums are made to nourish, protect, and hydrate skin. They contain active ingredients that will penetrate the skin's surface to treat skin-specific issues like acne, discoloration, dullness, or fine lines. Our HEAL face serum is designed to tackle acne-prone skin concerns with the use of our key ingredient niacinamide -- a form of vitamin B3 -- an anti-inflammatory.
How should I use a serum?
The best and effective way to use our HEAL serum is to apply following cleansing and toning. Can be applied morning and night, but we highly suggest applying in the morning to help protect skin against environmental assaults and free radical production produced by light.
