A Facial Skin Care Routine

Here’s how to incorporate these three products into a tropical facial skin care routine that leaves the complexion brighter and smoother-looking.

1. Cleanser
For your cleansing step, try the Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Cleanser. This delicious-smelling cleanser contains lactic acid, a gentle alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) exfoliant that eliminates surface buildup and improves skin hydration for brighter, youthful-looking skin. It is formulated with mangosteen, which visibly enhances skin vitality and radiance.

How To Use
To apply, mix a small amount of product with water into your hands. In a circular motion, apply and massage gently with your fingertips while ensuring that you cover your face and neck. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Do not use on broken or abraded skin.

2. Toner
Next, apply the Pineapple Refining Tonique, a dual-action chemical and enzymatic tonique designed to gently exfoliate, visibly brighten and hydrate the skin. This exfoliating toner has a fresh pineapple scent and is formulated with PHA, enzymes (bromelain) and tranexamic acid. Working together, these ingredients team up to gently exfoliate and brighten the appearance of the skin. If you have sensitive skin, PHA is the exfoliating acid perfect for you. A non-irritating exfoliant, PHA targets the dryness associated with environmental stress while reducing the visible signs of aging. Because this acid focuses on surface-level penetration, sensitive skin types can apply this exfoliating ingredient without fear of irritation.

How To Use
After cleansing, apply an even layer onto the face and neck area with either your palms or a cotton round. Leave this on. Start with one application every other day and increase to daily use if you do not experience irritation.

3. Exfoliant
The Firm Skin Acai Exfoliating Peel leaves your skin looking firmer, more hydrated and feeling noticeably soft and smooth. This peel gently exfoliates using lactic and glycolic acids to renew a dull skin texture. It also creates firmer-looking skin thanks to a formula containing antioxidants sourced from acai berry, grapefruit and goji berry,

How To Use
Apply one to two pumps of the solution onto the dual-textured cotton round pads that are provided. Apply in circular motions ensuring you apply to your face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Leave it on.

4. Mask
You’ll love the Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Masque for visibly reducing the signs of fine lines and wrinkles. This cream-gel mask is formulated with Vitamins C and E to improve the appearance of the skin. This blend of tropical citrus fruits, leafy greens and avocado oil helps reduce the look of drying environmental stress as well as fine lines and wrinkles.

How To Use
Apply a small amount of the mask evenly over the entire face, neck and décolleté, if desired. Allow the mask to dry for five to ten minutes. Use a lukewarm face cloth in a circular motion to gently scrub off the mask and rinse thoroughly with clear water.

5. Essence (Optional)
If you feel like your skin has lost its natural radiance, or that you have a compromised skin barrier, an optional step in your routine is adding an essence such as the Kombucha Microbiome Balancing Essence. This essence is formulated with pre, pro* and postbiotics to enhance the skin’s glow, and primes the skin for all the products to follow in your skin care routine. You can learn more about pre, pro* and postbiotic skin care in this guide.

How To Use
Dispense a small amount of product in your hands or on a cotton pad and pat it onto cleansed and toned skin. Leave the essence on.

6. Serum
Tone and refresh the skin with the Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum. Boasting citrus fruits such as lemon and grapefruit, this lightweight serum helps protect your skin against the signs of aging, like wrinkles and fine lines. It also contains botanical ferulic acid, an effective antioxidant to help the skin appear bright, firm and plump.

How To Use
Apply three to four drops to your skin once or twice daily. Leave it on.

7. Eye Cream
De-puff tired eyes with the Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream. This eye cream smooths wrinkles and minimizes the appearance of dark undereye circles thanks to the inclusion of an ice wine active, caffeine and botanical peptides. You’re left with a smoother, more hydrated-looking eye area.

How To Use
Gently depress the finger trigger nozzle to dispense a small amount of product and use the cool stainless steel rollerball to gently massage the cream under the eye area in a circular, upwards sweeping motion. Use either once or twice daily on its own or under your favorite eye serum or cream. Leave it on.

8. Concentrate
Immediately refresh and revitalize dull skin with the Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Concentrate. A Lactic Acid Complex consisting of a proprietary blend of actives gently resurfaces the skin and refines pores for a more radiant, silky and youthful-looking complexion.

How To Use
Apply one to two pumps to cleansed skin once or twice daily. Leave the product on.

9. Facial Oil
The Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil firms and plumps the skin and provides deep hydration for all skin types. Infused with rosehip, jojoba and seabuckthorn oils, this luxurious facial oil provides essential fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins to improve the look of elasticity and texture.

How To Use
Apply a thin layer of oil (2–3 drops) to the face and neck with circular motions once or twice daily. Leave on. This oil can be followed with a moisturizer.

10. Moisturizer & SPF
The tropical Coconut Age Corrective Moisturizer hydrates the skin thanks to coconut oil, coconut water and shea butter. A Natural Retinol Alternative Complex also gives the skin a lifted and tightened appearance. Follow with an SPF like our Lilikoi Mineral Defense Moisturizer SPF 40.

How To Use
Apply a layer of moisturizer over the entire face and neck area. Leave on. For a lighter application, emulsify a small amount of moisturizer in your hand with a few drops of water. For extra hydration, apply a thicker layer on dry areas. Follow with an SPF.

11. Add-In Boost
Blend the Superfood Booster-Powder into your moisturizer before application. This fine powder mixes with a cream moisturizer to target uneven skin tone, brighten the complexion and reduce the appearance of dark spots. Rich in the superfood Kakadu plum, the powder delivers the fruit’s Vitamin C antioxidants to the skin, helping minimize the look of dark spots.

As International Educator Brian Goodwin, says: “Vitamin C is crucial for achieving that coveted natural glow. The Superfood Booster-Powder is enhanced with Kakadu plum — an ultra-potent fruit that contains 30-50 times the Vitamin C found in oranges.”

How To Use
Using the dosing spoon provided, add one leveled scoop of powder to a cream moisturizer in the palm of your hand. Mix well. Apply to the face and neck 1–2 times daily. Leave it on.

12. Mist
After your skin care routine, refresh your complexion throughout the day with a spritz of mist. The antioxidant-rich Mangosteen Revitalizing Mist contains superfruit, which revitalizes the skin’s appearance. This mist also minimizes the look of environmental stress, improves skin tone and reduces the appearance of pores.

How To Use
Cleanse skin and apply one to two sprays onto the face and neck or apply with a cotton pad, avoiding the eye area. Leave the mist on. To refresh the complexion, you can re-apply anytime during the day.
