BEST GENTLE CLEANSER & TONER (FOR EVERYDAY USE AND SENSITIVE SKIN):
Algotherm Gentle Cleansing Milk – By far the best GENTLE cleanser I’ve ever used and continue to use. This is my daily cleanser and has been for YEARS. Milky cleansers are gentle and non irritating plus do not strip your skin of its natural oils. This one in particular I LOVE because I can wash my eye area with and take my eye makeup off with (although when I wear a lot of eye makeup I still use an eye makeup remover as well). No Glycolic, No Salicylic – Super Gentle
Algotherm Toner – Best Gentle Toner. I’ve also been using this one to go along with my cleanser for AGES. A lot of people don’t use a toner which is really important. It finishes off the cleansing process, helps to minimize pores and at the end of the day if you wear makeup you will be STUNNED to see how much additional makeup it removes on your cotton ball! – No Glycolic, No Salicylic – Super Gentle
FOR HYPERPIGMENTATION AND ACNE SCARRING:
Algotherm Youth Clarifying Fluid with SPF 30 – I did mention that if you have pigmentation issues you should probably get a peel or something of the sort but if you are looking for something for at home care and a moisturizer that helps for pigmentation this is a FANTASTIC ONE. This light fluid efficiently protects skin against UV rays and aggressions strains. It brightens and unifies complexion. The appearance of dark spots and fine lines is soothed over and reduced. We have MANY clients on this moisturizer who LOVE it. One thing our clients really like is that it has SPF 30 already in the lotion as well which also protects against further sun damage as well.
FOR ACNE, CLOGGED PORES TREATMENT (AND CAN EVEN HELP WITH DARK SPOTS AND FINE LINES):
Glycolic Cleanser – I talked a LOT about Glycolic in the video as you probably heard. I have been using Glycolic products on my face since the age of 12 and I swear by the. Our Glycolic Cleanser is by far our best selling cleanser. It has 10% Glycolic in it and helps to exfoliate the dead skin while treating your acne and trouble spots. We recommend using the Algotherm Gentle cleanser in the morning and this cleanser at night to not overdue it. Remember overdoing anything is not good for your skin so always think everything in moderation!
Glycolic Moisturizer – This glycolic moisturizer is amazing! This would be your night cream for before you go to bed. You apply this to cleansed skin (avoiding eye area) and it helps to treat your acne. Again, glycolic will not dry you out as salicylic and benzyl peroxide and others do. Glycolic keeps the skin balanced and glowing which is why everyone loves it. You can do this every night or every other night. I always recommend to start with the 5%PM. Keep in mind – I have been doing Glycolic for YEARS and I only use 10%PM. Don’t be so eager to go high right off the bat. Better to start slow.
FOR OILY SKIN:
Algotherm Purifying Matifying Fluid – This daily moisturizing treatment regulates excess sebum leaving the skin less oily and clearer, day after day. It matifies, soothes, and delivers comfort and radiance. Its matte finish and anti-shine action make this treatment an excellent make-up base that all women will love. This product will act as your moisturizer and you will apply it day and night onto cleansed skin but it will control the oil production for oily skin and give you a more matte look throughout the day.
FOR DRY SKIN:
Algotherm Repair Re-Source Cream – 5 in 1, the Repair RE-Source Cream instantly comforts, moisturizes, lastingly nourishes, revitalizes and protects the skin from dryness. The skin’s suppleness and comfort are restored for lasting well-being. Apply morning and night to cleansed skin.
Dr. Grandel Contour Balm – A great eye cream for eyes and can also be used on lips as well.
