How to use:  Pour a quarter-size amount into hand. Gently press into face and neck with fingertips. Use morning and night after cleansing and before other skincare. It dries on your face quickly.

3. Treat

How to use:  Dispense 1-2 pumps into the hand. Smooth onto face, neck, and décolletage with upward strokes. Use morning and night. Rub remaining into hands!

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

4(a)

How to use:  Apply the product with your ring finger. Gently pat around the eye area until fully absorbed. Use morning and night.

Note: if the Countertime eye cream is too heavy for you to put makeup on right away try the Countermatch Eye Cream for daytime and the Countertime eye cream at night.

AM

How to use:  Dispense 1-2 pumps into the hand. Smooth onto face, neck, and décolletage with upward strokes. Use daily in the AM.

4(b)
PM

How to use:  Scoop a small amount onto fingertips. Massage gently into face, neck, and décolletage with upward strokes. Use nightly, as well as during the day if extra hydration is needed.

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!
