Treatment Overview

A cocktail of botanical enzymes dissolves pore-clogging debris while balancing, softening and purifying skin, all without irritation. Smoother texture, visibly diminished pores and refreshing non-comedogenic hydration complete the picture.

An excellent introduction to acne facials, the Clarifying Enzyme Facial works equally as well on sensitized and flaking Accutane-parched complexions as it does on overactive oily skin.

Step by Step Instructions

Cleanse Phase: 5-7 minutes

First Cleanse: Apply Salicylic Wash and cleanse the face, neck and décolleté. Rinse and remove.

Second Cleanse: Apply a small amount of Cucumber Bead Cleanser to pre-moistened skin and perform a secondary, gentle cleanse. Just a little is needed if mixed with Salicylic Wash. (Skip this step if skin is sensitive).

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 Balancing Tonic to the entire face, neck and décolleté.

Skin Analysis & Exfoliation Phase: 10-15 minutes

Perform Skin Analysis.

Mix 1/2 teaspoon of Zyme Peel Powder with 1 teaspoon 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 Soothing Chamomile Eye Makeup Remover 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. The Zyme Peel mixture, while steaming, can be used with a rotary brush for those clients who have more oily build up. This increases the intensity of the peel…more effectively “digesting” oils and excess sebum. Steam the skin for 7 – 10 minutes, then remove with gentle cotton pads or towels.*

Spray Balancing Tonic on cotton pads and apply to the skin to restore the skin pH balance.

Perform gentle extractions and High Frequency if needed. LED light therapy may also be used at this time if desired.

Massage Phase: 10 minutes

Perform facial massage with Skin Nourishing Balm. Apply a very small amount to hands and begin massage. No need to remove excess balm unless you desire to tissue off excess.

Mask Phase: 10-15 minutes

Apply approximately a teaspoon of the Sensitive Skin Enzyme 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 while the mask is on the face. It is also recommended that cooling eye compresses be made with the Soothing Chamomile Eye Makeup Remover and let sit on the eyes at this time to further calm the eye area. Remove mask with towels and sponges or cotton pads.

Hydrate & Moisturize Phase: 3-5 minutes

Apply Hydrant Stabilizer to your hands and then massage into face, neck and décolleté to restore hydration and balance to the skin.

Finish facial with a light application of Oil Free Healing Lotion and Aroma Matte Day Cream SPF 30.

Tips & Tricks

Hydrant Stabilizer is a great product to recommend for “oil-phobic” individuals and/or acne prone skin that needs hydration.

Place your hands in front of the client when you have the Skin Nourishing Balm (before you perform the neck and shoulder massage). Although these are active, deep-cleansing treatments, it is still important to help the client feel like they are receiving a sense of pampering…this will help to create a good balance.

A cool towel, beauty globes or cold stones can be added at the end of the facial or right after extractions to add special “cooling” touch.

To make extractions easier on heavily congested skin: Apply a small amount of Skin Nourishing Balm to these areas shortly after removing the enzyme. Occlude with pieces of plastic wrap for several minutes, and then remove plastic when you get to the area, tissue off balm and perform extractions.
