I highly recommend my specially designed “Too Much Sun Exposure” Facial Regeneration Ritual protocol as we transition from Summer into Autumn for repairing Hyper-pigmentation and renewing your post-Summer skin featuring OSEA Organic Seaweed Skin Care product line~
I’ve recommended OSEA for years because it consistently produces exceptional results with own skin and that of my loyal clientele and especially because it embodies the core elements of Wellness–its name is an acronym for Ocean. Sun. Earth. Atmosphere. Jenefer Palmer, its creator, founded OSEA 20 years ago with the intention of creating a natural skincare line free of toxic, synthetic ingredients.
OSEA delivers proven results without causing harm to our health or the health of our environment. Its lovely skin care formulations are made with certified organic, bio~available seaweed, and infused with pure steam-distilled and cold-pressed essential oils–these superior ingredients create powerful natural anti-aging solutions and assist in reducing the appearance of blemishes and hyper-pigmentation–eliminating the need for synthetic ingredients entirely. OSEA is free of synthetic chemicals such as parabens, petrochemicals, and sulfates.
Through many years of experience working with dozens of skin care lines, I feel professionally that this is the best skin care product line to utilize for an At-Home SELF-CARE RITUAL to do as a panacea for Hyper-Pigmentation. If you notice freckles, sun spots, redness, or dehydration on your skin presently, BEGIN doing this regimen as soon as possible, and then continue doing the 6 easy and luxurious steps I’ve listed below 3x per week for two to three weeks…six or nine treatments in total depending on the extent of your sun damage…to really facilitate the repair, re-hydration and healing of your skin.
By using this beauty ritual treatment faithfully, you will lessen the resulting damage of hyper-pigmentation from your sunburn, and will re-vitalize your skin pro-actively after Summer sun exposure before those undesired pigment spots appear. I advise you to start this program NOW and continue to use it regularly during the AUTUMN Season.
Start by applying about 4-6 pumps of the Cleansing Milk into the palm of one hand, use the fingers of the opposite hand to dip into cleanser and press you palms together, then apply the cleansing milk to a dry face with gentle sweeping strokes both in your AM and PM cleansing routine. Begin immediately adding small amounts of lukewarm water a little at a time to emulsify the cleanser on your face, neck, and décolleté while you gently and slowly rotate and massage the cleanser all over your skin. [Remove any eye or lip make-up first by using 1-2 pumps of this cleanser on dampened cotton pads]. Your face will feel pampered as you experience its soft milky-like consistency lift and dissolve any dirt, excess oil, grime, make-up, and sunscreen to thoroughly cleanse your skin without stripping it.
STEP TWO- Remove the cleanser by wetting a soft washcloth with fairly warm running water, turn off the faucet, and squeeze out the excess water from the cloth. Then press your very soft wet wash cloth to your face and let it lay over your face like a warm steam towel for about 15 seconds, turn the cloth over after its cooled slightly and apply the washcloth to your neck and décolleté areas for another 15 seconds. Finish by gentle press and release movements while slowly wiping away the cleanser with the washcloth–the removal should only take about 10 seconds. I remind you NOT to stretch or over-wipe your skin while using the cloth to remove the cleanser. While your skin is still damp follow with–
You’ll apply short burst sprays of either MIST all over the areas you just cleansed (face, neck and décolleté) while you press* and lift the watery-like substance lightly into and over your skin with your FINGERTIPS to assist with lymphatic drainage by using a super gentle pumping technique…beginning from the center of your forehead outwards to your temples, around the eye bones ever so lightly, across and under the cheekbones from your nose to your ears, across and under your jaw, continue with light hand over hand movements down the sides of your neck, then sweep with your palms across your décolleté and shoulders (this step should only comprise less than a minute).
*By misting and then gently pressing the mist into your skin rather than just letting it evaporate or wiping off, you will notice your skin feeling smoother, plumper and better prepared to absorb and retain the benefits of the next finishing products applied to your skin.
Either of these additional serums will greatly assist in relieving that dehydrated, irritated, sun-parched condition, yet be sure to follow with the BRIGHTENING SERUM for a two-pronged attack against hyper-pigmentation (even if you don’t see it yet since sun damage is cumulative and will show up weeks, months or even years later).
Do this combo moisturizing procedure by pumping 2-3 squirts of either Oil Serum from the efficient applicator into one of your clean palms and add 3-4 pumps of the Atmosphere Protection Cream into the same palm, blend together slightly with the fingertips of your opposite hand, then press your palms together and apply this highly nourishing emulsion by gliding it over all your skin’s pre-treated areas avoiding your eyes.
Used overnight, this nutrient-dense Cream will super hydrate and help with repaiiring any redness, blotchiness, or sun damaged/hyper-pigmented areas of your entire countenance.
STEP SIX- The last important KEY STEP in this protocol IS TO USE A REGENERATING MASQUE 2-3x a week usually in the PM (or whenever time permits) since it is an integral part to the successful outcome of this entire process.
After first doing the Cleansing procedure recommended in Steps 1 and 2 (referenced above). Apply a generous dollop of the Red or White Masks (or equal parts of both) into the palm of one hand and also adding several pumps of OSEA’s great new HYALURONIC SEA SERUM (moisture-boosting & anti-aging)~ https://oseamalibu.com/collections/serums/products/hyaluronic-sea-serum
You’ll need approximately 2 teaspoons total of Masque MIXED with 1-3 squirts of the super hydrating Hyaluronic Serum in the palm of your hand which you can then simply apply with your fingertips to all cleansed areas. Or, for a Spa-like Effect, mix the mask with the serum in a little cup or dish with a small spatula, and apply this mixture all over your face, neck and decollete with soothing strokes of a fan brush.
This special combo mask of the Red and/or White Algae Mask along with the Hyaluronic Sea Serum will plump and restore the moisture level in your skin as well as assist in gently removing dead skin cells from its surface. Leave the masque on 15-2o minutes and remove as above following the suggested STEP TWO, then follow with STEPS THREE through FIVE.
If you desire to follow-up your at-home regimen with a professional Facial, schedule an appointment with your local experienced Holistic Esthetician–I would highly recommend you contact the OSEA website to inquire about a local skin care expert trained in using their wonderful products in treatment for a renewing Autumn Facial.
(If, you go to another skin care practitioner or a nearby local or destination spa who does not use OSEA products, PLEASE REQUEST NO drastic peels, microdermabrasion, micro-needling, derma-planing, or other too invasive exfoliating treatments since these could add to your already stressed and sun-damaged skin). Less is always More when it comes to treating fragile, sensitive, de-hydrated, and distressed skin.
