Since the rise of selfies and makeup highlighters, we’ve all coveted a luminous complexion. So why not consider extending that glow from the neck down? Our expansive Mangosteen Collection provides head-to-toe radiance with products for face as well as body. If your Clients need a full body skin care transformation, this collection is a wonderful product selection to have on hand. Lets explore the benefits of mangosteen as well as a skin care routine for the spa and at-home.
The Mangosteen Collection works for all skin types and treats a myriad of skin conditions. It’s gentle enough for sensitive skin (including the professional-only peel), but potent enough to resurface and brighten the appearance of a dull, tired complexion.
The main star of this collection is mangosteen, a tropical superfruit native to Southeast Asia loaded with antioxidants; it works with our proprietary Lactic Acid Complex and red clover flower extract to reveal glowing skin and minimized pores without redness or downtime.Plus, it’s easy to fall in love with this fruit for its heavenly scent — an aroma that comes straight from paradise and takes the skin care experience to the next level.
The Mangosteen Collection has immediately won over fans with its benefits for renewing and revitalizing the skin, particularly due to the formulas of the Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Cleanser, Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Concentrate and the Mangosteen Lactic Pro Peel 10%. Lactic acid is present in these formulas. It is a gentle alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) exfoliant that removes surface buildup and improves skin hydration for a brighter, smoother complexion.
With the Mangosteen Body Lotion and Mangosteen Replenishing Hand Cream in the collection as well, this superfruit is reigning supreme for body care too. These two skin care superstars use the same gentle lactic acid to resurface the skin all over the body without stripping — and actually restore the hydration essential to achieve that desired glow. While you’ll experience immediately radiant skin, the active antioxidants in mangosteen (known as xanthones) also improve and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. What more could you want in a skin care routine for both face and body?
For natural head-to-toe radiance, here’s a step-by-step face and body care treatment for an at-home skin care routine. Or, if you're a spa professional, note our additional steps for providing the full Mangosteen experience for your Clients.
Mix the Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Cleanser with a few drops of water to create a milky lather. The lactic acid gently loosens dead skin cells and pairs well with 2-3 shakes of the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant — optional for those who like a manual buffing action. Remove with a warm, wet towel.
For extra glow, use your favorite Eminence Organics exfoliant. We recommend choosing the right Vitaskin Exfoliating Peel (Calm Skin, Bright Skin, Clear Skin or Firm Skin) that matches your skin care goals. For spa professionals, follow this step with the Mangosteen Lactic Pro Peel 10% for next-level luminosity.
Tone & Essence
Spritz with the Mangosteen Revitalizing Mist for an invigorating boost, or apply using cotton pads. No rinsing is necessary … and minimized pores are guaranteed.
Follow with an essence, if desired. Dispense a few drops of the Birch Water Purifying Essence and gently press into the skin until fully absorbed. This game-changing step boosts hydration and provides extra plumping action.
To further customize your treatment, choose a mask based on your skin care goals. We're a fan of the Bamboo Age Corrective Masque for normal to dry skin types. Leave on for 5-10 minutes before removing with a warm, wet towel. We also love the Acne Advanced Clarifying Masque that gently exfoliates to clear the appearance of the skin.
Apply the Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Concentrate in a thin layer for a leave-on refining treatment that also works beautifully under makeup. Mix with our best-selling Bamboo Firming Fluid for extra benefits that improve the visible signs of aging.
Warm a small amount of the Mangosteen Gel Moisturizer between hands and massage into face, neck and decollete for an ultra-smooth, velvety finish. Feel free to add a couple of drops of the Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil for those in need of additional moisture — or simply for the luxurious feel and scent!
Spa professionals can perform a relaxing hand and arm massage using the Mangosteen Body Lotion. Or, if you're following this routine at home, enlist a willing partner for this step. Finish with the Mangosteen Hand Cream to resurface the skin and leave a smooth, silky feel.
Eye Care (optional)
It's importance to use sun care for a week after treatment (and always)! Brush on our Sun Defense Minerals and set with a spritz of toner or water. At the spa, this is a mandatory step after a peel treatment, as skin will be more sensitive to the sun.
Whether at home or in the spa, this treatment will leave the skin feeling resurfaced, refined and replenished. Which product from the Mangosteen Collection do you enjoy the most? Let us know in the comments below or tell us on social media.
