1. Cleanse

How to use: Work a dime-size amount of cleanser into the palm of your hand. Then, massage onto damp face and neck for 1 minute. Rinse.

2. Prep

How to use:  Swipe over clean, dry face.

When to use: Use 1-2 times a week, gradually increasing to once a day either AM or PM. 

AM: Do not use on the same mornings as Reflect Effect Mask. Use your Countermatch toner whenever you are not using your AHA Toner.

PM: Do not use on the same evenings as Reflect Effect Mask or Overnight Resurfacing Peel. Use your Countermatch toner whenever you are not using your AHA Toner.

3. Treat

How to use: Dispense one pump into hands, then massage into face, neck, and décolletage with upward strokes. Use daily after cleansing and toning, morning and night. 

Pro Tip: Brush your teeth with a non-toxic toothpaste while the serum soaks into your skin. I also floss after I put on my 2nd treat step to give it a minute to soak in before my moisturizer

4. Protect

5. Oils​

How to use: After moisturizer, massage four to six drops onto face and neck.
Oils

If you would like, you can use oils during the day. You can use the oil alone or mix 3 drops into your AM moisturizer. I use my oils at night after my moisturizer is on.  I let my moisturizer soak in for a bit. (Applying oils after your moisturizer allows the oils to seal the hydration into your skin).  If you are pressed for time, you can mix 3 drops of oil into your nighttime moisturizer too. 

Important: ONLY USE oils on the nights you are NOT using the Overnight resurfacing peel (Example: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, & Sunday)

+ I use the No. 1 oil around my eyes on top of my eye cream and on my cheeks, where I have sunspots. 

+ I use No. 2 oil  around my chin and forehead furrow for sagging and deeper lines

+ I use No. 3 oil on any redness, usually around the nose for me but great on cheeks and any rosacea

AM: Sun Protection

I take a break, letting all of that soak in, and enjoy my breakfast. Before I start applying any makeup, I put on Countersun Daily Sheer Defense For Face – SPF 25. Wearing an SPF is essential even in the winter because it blocks blue light from computers and cell phones (which damages our skin) and sun (UV) exposure from windows and time outside.

As always, if you have any questions, please ask. If you have any Before/After results to share, I love to see those too!
