Fall is coming. It’s time to erase summer’s skin damage and renew your skin with Vita -C Wild Berry Treatment. This light at-home peel uses completely natural and in season berry acids to remove old, dead cells. Even those with sensitive skin can use it (special directions apply) with refreshing results.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if all of us could get monthly facials? Not quite realistic budget-wise and time-wise for most. But why not give yourself a mini-facial at home to get rid of summer’s skin damage? We look in the mirror now that fall is approaching and realize that we all need it: fine lines appearing out of no where, sun damage that creeps in (even when we wear big hats), enlarged pores, hyper-pigmentation and dark spots, and areas of old breakout (hardened papules under the skin), etc. So we have Vita-C treatment to renew and refresh!
How does Vita-C Wild Berry Treatment work?
This light home “peel” has the unique ability to bring a high concentration of vitamin C esters to the skin while using the gentle aha action of wild blueberry, cranberry and red raspberry. The vitamin C esters, vitamin E and herbal extracts create a synergetic blend that helps to fight off the assault your skin encounters on a daily basis and protect from an onslaught of from free radicals. The base is organic aloe vera juice which balances the peeling effects of the organic wild berries with moisture and protection.
The purpose of the Vita-C treatment is to carefully bring your skin to the “breaking point” of where it is just peeling and then stop and let your skin recover. This recovery period is VERY IMPORTANT. You do not want to use any suppressive therapies (such as anti-biotic ointments or steroid/cortisone creams) on your skin during this time. You also want to make sure to EAT WELL, hydrate, and be respectful of the sun.
One jar of Vita-C is about 3 months supply and the ingredients are at least 70% organic/100% vegan. Please be aware to use clean utensils to dip into the jar to preserve the integrity of the ingredients. This cycle of peel/recovery may be repeated up to 6 times in a year, or more if your particular skin warrants it. (Just listen to your skin and don’t over-do it, OK?)
- USE AT NIGHT on clean skin
- For sensitive skin, coat with N&R Oil or No Evil before applying.
- Mist face with Holy Cow Mineral Mist
- Apply a thin layer over the entire face, avoiding sensitive eye area ( include your brow line, behind the ears, & down the neck)
- Avoid any skin that is currently sunburned, but it’s excellent for post sunburn.
- Either rinse after 5 to 10 minutes ( for sensitive skin) or leave overnight (for more resilient skin)
- Be sure to moisturize with N&R Oil or No Evil and Holy Cow Mist in the morning
- Use until gentle peeling occurs (5-10 day depending on the condition of your skin)
- Allow 3 weeks for your skin to recover and rebuild before repeating
- Use for 3 consecutive months (repeat same treatment as above).
This is one of our products that does different things for different people. For some, especially those with thick and rough skin, continuing this treatment monthly can yield excellent results in reducing fine-lines, scarring, sun damage, and hardened breakouts that remain under the skin.
For others, who have sensitive skin, the results can also be wonderful, but they will not need to use it as often and should take more breaks if they feel any dry patches or irritation resulting.
How do you know if your skin is more resilient or sensitive? Using Vita-C will tell you pretty quickly how sensitive your skin is. If you experience irritation and dry patches after only a few days use, or intense peeling right away, congrats! You’re super sensitive! Just pull back to one day every few days and let Vita-C work its magic slowly.
