How often should I be cleansing and toning my skin?
Preparing the skin is an essential step in both your morning and night routine. Cleansing and toning ensures the skin is primed to receive the maximum benefits of treatments and moisturizers.
What kind of cleanser should I be using?
It is important to find a cleanser that leaves your skin feeling clean and refreshed without feeling over–dried. Ultra Facial Cleanser is a mild formula that deeply cleanses without stripping the skin of its natural oils.
What is the best way to cleanse the skin?
We always recommend cleansing the hands first before washing the face. Gently massage the cleanser into damp facial areas using small circular motions tocreate a rich lathering effect that removes impurities. Be sure to avoid the immediate eye area, then rinse thoroughly.
What does Squalane do for the skin?
Squalane is a highly refined moisturizing oil steam-distilled from the olive. It is silky to the touch and mimics the natural oils found in skin, allowing for easily absorption. This signature Kiehl’s ingredient found in over 60 of our formulations, helps to restore skin’s natural moisture balance and keep it ultra soft and supple.
What is the most effective way to apply a moisturizer?
Apply to cleansed and toned facial skin day and night as needed avoiding the immediate eye area. Apply evenly by dispensing onto fingertips and dabbing a small amount on the cheek area, forehead, and chin before massaging the formula over the face. Use upward, circular motions.
What should I use to moisturize my eye area?
The skin around the eyes is both delicate and sensitive, and it is imperative that products used in that area are specially formulated as well as ophthalmologist–tested. For daily hydration around the eye area, we recommend using Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado both morning and night. It provides a quick burst of hydration to the eye area, while reducing puffiness and dark circles.
Is Ultra Facial the recommended regimen for oily skin?
For oily skin, without problematic acne or unusually large pores, we recommend using the Ultra Facial Oil–Free 3–Step Regimen. This collection works synergistically with the skin to visibly reduce oil and control shine without stripping skin of essential moisture in three steps: drawing moisture in with water–infused humectants; locking in essential moisture with naturally–derived sugars; and lastly, reducing shine with oil–free conditioners to balance the skin’s natural oils.
Step 1: Cleanse hands and gently massage Ultra Facial Cleanser on damp facial skin using small, circular motions — avoiding the eye area.
Step 2: After cleansing, moisten a cotton pad with Ultra Facial Toner and gently sweep along the face to enhance the cleansing effect — avoiding the eye area.
Step 3: Apply Ultra Facial Cream by dabbing small amounts on the cheeks, forehead and chin. Massage over the face using upward, circular motions – avoiding the eye area.
