Whether your skin is too dry, too oily or too sensitive, the cause is almost always improper cleaning. Either too much cleansing with harsh products and over-exfoliation, or too little cleansing with overloads of heavy creams and failure to remove enough.I realized this skincare regime was different when I was sent a detailed questionnaire asking me to describe my daily skin care routine. After I sent in my questionnaire, I received an indepth email describing what I needed to change in my skin care routine to create glowing skin. I have large pores mixed with dry skin. Simone Francis experts were very detailed in the questionnaire as well as in their reply to me. I loved that I didn't have to play the guessing game they told me what my issues were, what could be causing them and what products are best for me.
I was using an anti-aging serum. My 30th birthday just past and I realized I better start taking better care of my skin, what I didn't realize was the product I choose had an ingredient similar to botox which obviously works well when injected into the skin layer but has shown no evidence in helping when absorbed from the top of the skin. What a waste of money that was! Next I was using a acne treatment which was way to harsh for my skin adding to my dryness problem. And who knew the powder that I was using was settling into my pores cause loads of problems besides making them appear bigger. I was really impressed by all the advice I was given and excited to stop my normal routine and give Simone Francis a shot.
I read the included directions and wondered if it would be too time consuming. The morning routine began with "The Sandwich", a mixture of moisturizer, refining scrub, and soap. The evening routine included cleansing with Milk Cleaner and following with toner and optional moisturizer. Once a week, I scheduled a mask treatment. I discovered the day and night treatments took only a few minutes per day. The mask was a ten minute treatment that I could put on and forget while I did other things. I will say it does take a few minutes for the line minimizer to dry so start early if you are putting on makeup. The experts at Simone France also recommend going without makeup whenever possible but I haven't been brave enough to go without makeup for long periods of time. Want to learn more?
