Step by Step Instructions

Cleanse Phase: 5-7 minutes

Apply Gentle Facial Wash and cleanse the face, neck and décolleté. Rinse and Remove.

Spray a small amount of Soothing Chamomile Eye Makeup Remover on a tissue or cotton pad and remove eye makeup.

Spray onto a tissue or cotton pad and then apply the Sensitive Skin Tonic to the entire face, neck and décolleté’

Skin Analysis & Exfoliation Phase: 10-15 minutes

Perform Skin Analysis.

Mix one teaspoon of Zyme Peel Powder with enough Zyme Peel Activator to create a creamy paste. Mix with a semi-stiff fan brush and warm up under steam. Test on self to make sure it is not too hot, then apply to the skin. Spray Sensitive Skin Tonic on round cotton pads and rest on eye area, and over enzyme mixture, in areas where a client may be highly sensitive to steam. This allows for “indirect” warmth. Steam the skin for 7-10 minutes, then remove with gentle cotton pads or towels.

Perform extractions, high frequency and LED light therapy if appropriate.

Spray Sensitive Skin Tonic on cotton pad and apply to the skin to restore the skin pH balance, hydrate and soothe.

Massage Phase: 10 minutes

Start facial with hands then integrate stones. Incorporate Cold Stones: To chill your Aqua Cold Stones, place them in a bowl of cold water with a cloth or washcloth on the bottom so that the stones do not “clank”. (Do not use ice cubes as the water will be too cold).

Apply several drops of the Hydra Calm Massage Oil to the face and begin the cold stone massage to help eliminate fluid and congestion in the face, and reduce puffiness, swelling, and redness. Perform 2-3 minutes with hands only before incorporating the stones, and at the end of the massage. Be creative with your stones. For example, if the client has eye puffiness, spend more time massaging that area.

Cold Stone Step-by-Step

Select two small stones. Place them on the chin and slide them up to the
ears and down the side of the neck as shown in the diagram. Repeat 3 times. Note: Check with the client for comfort level. If the stones are too cold, it will be uncomfortable rather than soothing.

Place two small cool stones on the neck and slide then down as in the diagram. Repeat 3 times.

Place two small cool stones on the chin, slide them up the jaw line up to
the ears, and come down on the sides of the neck, ending along the shoulder as demonstrated in the diagram to the left. Repeat 3 times. Note: When stones begin to warm up, return them to the cold water and select two new stones.

Place the small stones at the corner of the mouth and slide them outward towards the ears and downward on the sides of the neck, ending along the shoulder as shown in the diagram. Repeat 3 times.

Place the small stones on the side of the nose and slide them outward towards the ears and downward on the sides of the neck, ending along the shoulder as shown in the diagram. Repeat 3 times.

Place the stones below the eyes and slide them outward and downward towards the ears and downward on the sides of the neck, ending along the shoulder as shown in the diagram. Repeat 3 times.

Place the stones on the forehead and slide them outward toward the temple and down in front of the ears and downward on the sides of the neck, ending along the shoulder as shown in the diagram. Repeat each of the three movements 3 times.

Place the cool stones on the chin, slide them along the jaw line up to the ears, and then down on the sides of the neck, ending along the shoulder as shown in the diagram. Repeat three times.

Place the cool stones under the chin and slide them up to the ears and down the side of the neck as shown below as shown in the diagram. Repeat three times. Finish massage with the hands for several final minutes. Tissue off excess oil (not necessary to remove completely) then apply mask.

Mask Phase: 10-15 minutes

Apply a teaspoon of the Balancing Thermogel Mask liberally with a fan brush. Leave on for 7-10 minutes. It is recommended that additional shoulder, neck and/or scalp massage be performed at this time for approximately 5 minutes while the mask is on the face. It is also recommended that cooling eye compresses be made with the Sensitive Skin Tonic and let sit on the eyes at this time to further calm the eye area. Remove mask with towels and sponges or cotton pads. For this skin type, super soft baby diapers or other gentle towels may be used.

Hydrate & Moisturize Phase: 3-5 minutes

Apply a small amount (2-3 cc) of Redness Relief Serum to your hands and then massage into face, neck and décolleté’.

Finish Facial with a light application of Collagen Eye Defense, and Botanical Soothing Cream SPF 30.

Tips & Tricks

Placement of smooth therapeutic cold stones onto hot spots pulls the heat out and leaves cooling relaxation in its place. The restorative, moisture-replenishing mask completes the peace and quiet, all to leave clients feeling totally at ease and comfortable in their own skin.

The 30 minutes express version of the treatment may be recommended as a series for clients that would benefit from a more frequent treatment program.
