Q: How do I know if my skin is normal to dry?
A: Normal-to-dry skin will have patches where skin cells flake, the surface appears dull and fine lines are more visible, especially around the eyes and above the lip. Harsh cleansing, cold weather, indoor heat and arid climates make your skin feel tight and sensitive. Fortunately, people with normal-to-dry skin are usually free from blemishes and breakouts. For normal-to-dry skin, add Herbalife SKIN Soothing Aloe Cleanser to your daily routine.
Q: How do I know if my skin is normal to oily?
A: Normal-to-oily skin will look shiny, especially in the T-Zone (nose, chin, forehead and cheeks). These areas have more oil glands than other parts of the face and, therefore, are a bit oilier and break out more frequently. Pores may be more visible, blemishes more apparent and the face could be sensitive to harsh cleansers and drying alcohols. For normal-to-oily skin, use Herbalife SKIN Polish Citrus Cleanser.
Q: Is it necessary to use a moisturiser if I have oily skin?
A: In a word, yes! In order for your skin to function at its best, it must have adequate moisture. Even the oiliest of skin can have low moisture levels. No matter what your skin type is, moisturising is an essential step for healthy skin and should be done every morning and every evening before bedtime. The Herbalife SKIN line includes a Polish Citrus Cleanser developed for normal-to-oily skin.
Q: At what point do I apply serum? Is it better to apply before or after Night Cream or Day Lotion?
A: Serum always goes on BEFORE your moisturisers. Serums are generally a bit more light weight in texture and consistency. They are formulated to deliver ingredients deeper into the skin then most moisturisers can reach. This is why it’s so important to put serum on first followed by your Night and Day Creams. Remember to always cleanse and tone your skin prior to applying your serum for maximum results.
Q: Why is using a night cream important?
A: Skin cells replace themselves faster than any other cells in the body. The peak hours for cell reproduction occur while you are sleeping. It is during this time when your body repairs the damage that was done during the day. Because this is when new cells are born, it is imperative to use a night cream that is enriched with vitamins and nutrients to facilitate healthy cell renewal. Our Herbalife SKIN line contains an antioxidant-rich night cream for all skin types to help fight the signs of aging.
Q: Can I wear both the Eye Gel and Eye Cream at the same time?
A: Each product has been developed for a specific skin care function. The Eye Gel helps firm the skin around the eyes, while the Eye Cream brings much needed hydration and helps minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. For maximum benefit it’s best to stick to a daytime and night time regimen that includes the Eye Gel the morning and the Eye Cream at night. However, if you choose to use both, apply the Eye Gel first, wait a minute or so until it dries down, and then apply the Eye Cream over top.
Q: What is the difference between an eye gel and an eye cream?
A: An eye gel is generally used during the day to help revive the under eye area, providing a wonderful cooling effect that refreshes and energises the delicate skin. The Herbalife SKIN Firming Eye Gel helps increase your skin’s elasticity. An eye cream can be used during the day or night, but is generally applied at bedtime. Richer in texture than an eye gel, eye creams provide extra moisture and vitamins. Try Herbalife SKIN Firming Eye Gel and Hydrating Eye Cream for great results.
Q: Why do I need to exfoliate?
A: Everyone exfoliates naturally. In fact, we lose about a million skin cell particles every minute. Using an exfoliating scrub helps this process along. Teenagers completely regenerate their skin about every 14 days. By the time we reach age 40, that rate can increase to about 30–40 days, resulting in dry, ashy or mottled-looking skin. Proper exfoliation reduces the time cells sit on the surface. The scrubbing particles slough off the dry, dead cells and bring the newer skin cells to the forefront, giving us a healthier and more vibrant complexion. Herbalife SKIN Instant Reveal Berry Scrub contains Blueberry seeds for exfoliation along with jojoba beads to smooth and polish the skin.
Q: Why should I use a mask?
A: Masks perform accelerated cleansing, toning and moisturising all in one. They add moisture or absorb oils from the skin, and help refine the appearance of pores, dissolve impurities and tone the skin. The result is a soft, smooth complexion with improved texture and tone. It is a good idea to always follow your mask with a moisturiser or night cream to help maintain a healthy moisture balance.
Q: How long should I leave Herbalife® SKIN Purifying Mint Clay Mask on for maximum benefit?
A: You should leave your Herbalife® SKIN Purifying Mint Clay Mask on for at least 5 minutes, and up to 10 minutes for maximum benefit.
Q: If I decide to use a mask and exfoliate on the same day, which should I do first?
A: I would advise exfoliating the skin first. There is no sense in wasting a good mask on dead skin cells. By exfoliating first, you start with a nice, fresh face to mask. This will allow the mask to really deliver its benefits without any interference from dead or dying skin cells.
