If your Clients are looking to target wrinkles and the appearance of aging, a spa facial is the best way to ensure they see results. The peptide technology used in Eminence Organics Marine Flower Peptide Collection offers a collagen boost that can help them look and feel their best at any age. Read on to find out more about the ingredients in this collection and how to incorporate these products into a facial that will leave your Clients with a youthful-looking glow.
Peptides are amino acids that make up certain proteins needed by the skin – including collagen. We’ll skip the science lesson (unless you’re into it) – but essentially when they’re added topically (via skin care), peptides can stimulate your skin to make collagen. More collagen “can lead to firmer, younger-looking skin, may help reduce inflammation, even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of wrinkles,” according to Healthline.
If you're looking to help your Clients experience the benefits of peptides, our Marine Flower Peptide Collection uses plant-based peptides as well as marine flower technology. The peptides in this collection are naturally derived from sacha inchi (a perennial plant native to certain parts of South America and the Caribbean) and rice protein, designed to take advantage of our natural collagen-building processes to increase the look of firmness and elasticity in our skin.
The Marine Flower Peptide Serum and the Marine Flower Peptide Eye Cream also contain our Smart Collagen+ Complex, a skin care ingredient formulated with cruelty-free collagen, natural plant peptides and sustainably sourced freshwater and saltwater algae. The Smart Collagen+ Complex and potent plant peptides give your skin the look of increased strength, elasticity and suppleness, while advanced algae extracts boost the appearance of firmness and provide long-last hydration.
With all of those benefits in mind, we have developed a Marine Flower Peptide Collection Facial Protocol that you can offer in your spa to help Clients achieve a younger-looking complexion.
Cleanse: Combine a small amount of cleanser with water in hands and massage into the skin with fingertips in a circular motion. For all skin types, use the Stone Crop Gel Wash, which is a great pick for a non-buffered peel application. If you’re dealing with normal to dry skin types, the Firm Skin Acai Cleanser will slightly buffer the skin.
Tone: Apply Neroli Age Corrective Hydrating Mist – a collagen-boosting toner with Natural Retinol Alternative and Swiss Green Apple Stem Cells for all skin types, especially mature – all over the face and leave on.
Exfoliate: For dry or dehydrated skin types that aren’t sensitive, apply the Firm Skin Acai Exfoliating Peel with dropper onto a cotton round or dispense directly into your hands. Apply in circular motions covering the face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Do not rinse as there is no need to neutralize. Or for any skin type, including sensitive, you can apply the Arctic Berry Enzyme Exfoliant and the Arctic Berry Pro Advanced Peel Activator to the skin. Neutralize with the Soothing Chamomile Tonique by spraying into the palms of hands and massaging the tonique into the skin until absorbed, or by saturating two cotton rounds and pressing them lightly into the skin. Continue until tingling sensation has subsided. Rest the skin for 1 minute.
Mask: For all skin types, a good option is the Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Masque, which harnesses the natural power of Vitamins C and E to improve the appearance of skin. The Firm Skin Acai Masque can help normal skin appear firm and plump. Alternatively, our Bamboo Age Corrective Masque is great for dry skin, helping it appear lifted and tightened with the help of our Natural Retinol Alternative.
Massage: A 5-minute massage with the Marine Flower Peptide Night Cream layered with the Arctic Berry Peptide Radiance Cream will help reduce the appearance of wrinkle depth and fine lines while promoting skin elasticity.
Add Essence: Gently press a few drops of the Birch Water Purifying Essence until fully absorbed to increase elasticity and improve barrier function.
Layer Serum And Concentrate: Start with the Marine Flower Peptide Serum to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Allow 30 seconds for optimal absorption and leave on. Follow that with the Marine Flower Peptide Concentrate to help protect collagen from degradation for a smoother complexion.
Moisturize: Apply Marine Flower Peptide Night Cream to the face, neck and décolleté. Gently massage until absorbed. This rich and velvety cream locks in moisture and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while rejuvenating the look of crepey skin.
Eye Care: To minimize the appearance of dark under-eye circles, apply a thin layer of the Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream to the eye area using light blending motions until absorbed. Follow by layering Marine Flower Peptide Eye Cream to provide long-lasting hydration and visibly improve the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes.
Layer Lip Care: Apply a thin layer of the Marine Flower Peptide Lip Serum using a Q-tip or fingertip and apply to the lip surface, outline, and surrounding area to target fine lines, wrinkles, and expression lines. Gently massage in using circular movements. Leave on. Next, apply the Citrus Lip Balm for a plumped and hydrated satin finish.
Sun Protection: After application of a peel treatment, skin will be more sensitive to the sun. Application of an SPF product post-treatment is mandatory. Advise your Client to use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing and limit sun exposure for a week afterwards. Apply the Lilikoi Daily Defense Moisturizer SPF 40 as per instructions to finish and protect your Client’s skin.
