Skin Reset Program

 

 

Introduction

Did you know that overindulging with creams and facials can aggravate your skin condition rather than improve it? But the real issue is that our skin, through constantly being ‘fed’ with nutrients or been stripped of its oils and defenses, loses its natural ability to cleanse, turnover, heal and glow. When skin is covered with layers of products and make-up every day, it also gradually loses these natural abilities and becomes more sensitive than it once was. This contributes to the fact that there are more people with sensitive skin than ever.

 

Skin Reset Program is designed to help create a smooth transition as you gradually reduce the amount of synthetic chemicals you use whilst introducing a minimalist skincare regimen with completely natural ingredients. By eliminating synthetic ingredients for at least 21 days, which is the cycle for skin turnover, the outer to middle layers of skin will be purified leading it to regain its natural abilities. With a minimised skincare regimen, the skin also works ‘harder’ to absorb all the nutrients you consume and apply to it.

 

What to expect

 By the end of 21 days, you will be using 3-4 skincare homemade products comfortably.

  1. During these 21 days, you will not get any facial treatment in a spa or salon, except for home care face massage which you may do yourself.
  2. You will be purifying your skin by having a weekly day without any skincare products and make-up (which means 3 times during the program).

 

Step 1 – Find your baseline

Start with this questionnaire to ensure that you can successfully complete the programme, as well as to customise the intensity of the programme based on your current skin condition and lifestyle.

 

Step 2 – Preparations

  1. De-clutter all the commercial products and make-up listed in the questionnaire (skincare products and routine section). You won’t use it if you don’t have it, so give away or discard rather than hiding them somewhere else where you can always find them.
  2. Have the following homemade skincare prepared:

Castile Face wash

Eye make-up remover (if you use eye make-up)

Gentle exfoliating cleanser

Face massage oil

Natural make-up powder

Natural sunscreen (optional)

Jojoba oil

 

Step 3 – Schedule

Choosing the right time frame based on your schedule and lifestyle is essential to completing the programme successfully. If you are travelling, attending a wedding (especially if it is your own), having important meetings, presentations or outdoor activities, start once those events are over.

 

6 days a week (for most people this would be your working days):

  1. Wash your face in the morning with water only. Drink plenty of water throughout the day especially if your skin feels dehydrated.
  2. Use Natural Sunscreen and Natural Make-up Powder only before going out. You can touch up during the day time as necessary. Moderate eye make-up is allowed.
  3. As soon as you get home, wash your face with Castile Face Wash.
  4. Using pure jojoba oil, employ the Good Night Face Massage

 

1 day a week (for most people this would fall on one of their days off):

  1. Carefully choose the best day when you do not need any product on your face, ideally a day when you can stay at home and relax. Spread your three days across the 21 days rather than use them up consecutively.
  2. Wash your face in the morning with water only. Drink plenty of water throughout the day especially if your skin feels dehydrated.
  3. Do not apply any products at all throughout the day, except a small amount of jojoba oil to ease dryness if needed.
  4. Follow your daily observations and make note of any changes in your skin.

 

Step 4 – Observation and Analysis

Learn to observe and analyse your skin condition regularly. Firstly look for the areas of improvement  before you look for problems. This is an occasion to acknowledge the positive change your products and lifestyle changes have brought, to give you the motivation to continue your journey.

Take a good look in a magnifying mirror to catch little signs that may not be visible to the naked eye:

 

  1. Preferably do this in the morning, before you wash your face. If this is not possible, choose a time when you are not wearing make-up and within half an hour after washing your face.
  2. First, look at your complexion. How does your skin look in terms of colour and texture?
  3. Second, check the firmness by lightly pinching your eyebrows or pressing your skin.
  4. Lastly, feel the texture of the skin. Also check your blood circulation by gently pressing under the eyes or on the cheeks.
  5. Next, you should look at areas of concern, but discern whether the problems are temporary due to your monthly cycle or to a lifestyle change, so that you approach them holistically. Typical common skin concerns and signs are the following:
  • Fatigue complexion: dull, dark in certain areas
  • Irritated: Red, inflamed, lower in temperature
  • Pigmented: Red or dark, dry in certain areas
  • Congested: Rough, dull, oily, dark spots
  • Overly hydrated or dehydrated: less elasticity, rough, dry
  • Sluggish: less elasticity
