Hi, I was wondering if this is a good routine for my 47 year old skin.

AM: Skin Signals Solution followed by P&R Day Cover

PM: LacSal or Exfol cream.

I'm a also a fan of Emu oil. Is it better to use it in the morning after the P&R Day Cover or in the evening, after the exfoliation cream?

Dear Lizzy:

That is a great routine! Actually we have a number of clients who do exactly that...

This is what generates some good results using the products you've outlined:

................................................................................................................................................................

• Easy-to-Follow Regimen for Visible Results

AM Use:
AM - After cleansing the skin, apply a light amount of Skin Signals Solution (the only copper peptide formula combined with peptides from enzymatically hydrolyzed elastin and collagen). The application should be so light that it just barely covers the area without leaving the skin excessively wet or damp. Most clients apply approximately 4 spritzes (upper left, upper right, lower left, lower right... with perhaps an additional spritz on the neck/décolletage area). Use sparingly.

Optional Tip! Afterward, apply a very light amount of Protect & Restore Day Cover (this is a mild copper peptide cream with added mineral UV reflector).

Moisturization Tip! Finish in the morning OR apply in the evening: Emu Oil-S Lipid Replenisher for Skin. Biochemically, emu oil is very comparable to human skin oil and is a biological oil that works well as the perfect moisturizer.


PM Use:
PM - After cleansing the area, apply a light amount of LacSal Cream (a 10% hydroxy acid leave-on exfoliator). Apply lightly and leave-on. Leave-on hydroxy acids work to slowly dissolve the links between damage skin cells and heighten skin cell turnover rate.


NOTE: How and when you would use your Emu Oil will depend on your skin type. Drier skin types may find that finishing in the morning with a very light application "locks in" the skin nutrients of their copper peptide products. Others with normal-to-combination skin type may use a bit of Day Cover after Skin Signals and find that their skin is well moisturized with just the lipids/oils found in Day Cover...they simply apply a bit of Emu Oil at the end of their day, after waiting about 30 minutes after LacSal. There really is no wrong way to do it.
