What to do if you’re sensitive to REVERSE Regimen

If you’re like me and have dark marks or sun damage on your face, you may want to REVERSE any dullness and discolouration but this is not the way to go if you have sensitive skin. It’s recommended you start with the SOOTHE Regimen to help moisturise, strengthen, calm and nourish your skin before moving onto other concerns.

However, if REVERSE was recommended from the Solution Tool, and your skin is red or irritated when using the products, this could indicate you may have scrubbed a bit too hard or that your skin is not used to the ingredients. If the dry, red, or irritated areas are confined to the cheeks or chin, it’s the result of over-exfoliation – either using the product in one place for too long or under too much pressure.

As a rule of thumb, don’t be heavy-handed with the cleanser, especially when you’re first starting out. Use your fingertips to gently apply the cleanser as you lightly scrub and get used to the regimen. Most importantly, be sure to follow the schedule in the brochure. Your skin needs to acclimate to the new lineup by ramping up the products as directed.

OPTION ONE:

If you believe that this is a result of scrubbing too hard or too long;

  1. Be sure to follow the directions. The REVERSE Regimen is introduced slowly so during the first three weeks, use a gentle cleanser, toner, moisturiser and sunscreen when not using the regimen.
  2. Avoid other forms of exfoliation such as scrubs, peels, mechanical brushes, washcloths, professional microdermabrasion and moisturisers with retinol or AHAs during this time.
  3. Be gentle and allow the products to do the work. Just use the fingertips to gently massage the Deep Exfoliating Wash evenly over the face.
  4. If skin begins to feel dry, layer a moisturiser over the REVERSE Dual Active Brightening Complex.

OPTION TWO:

If your skin is still reacting with redness or irritation, we recommend switching to the SOOTHE Regimen for 30-60 days then try REVERSE again after patch testing.

Always PATCH TEST new products three times a day for three days on your jawline.

  1. Apply a small amount of the cleanser for 30 seconds then rinse it off.
  2. Apply each product on a separate area and when you re-test, re-apply the products over themselves.
  3. Watch for a product reaction; redness, dryness, irritation, or swelling.
  4. When you choose products, do not use any that irritate your skin.

Use the SOOTHE Regimen for at least thirty days and begin to add the REVERSE Regimen in this way…
