How to Resurface + Renew Skin With the 7 Day Soak
Looking to reset, resurface, and regenerate your skin? Now is the perfect time to try our founder, Dimitri’s 7 Day Soak. If you tune in to watch Dimitri during his HSN shows, then you’ve most likely heard him speak about his secret to glowing skin. This intensive but simple regimen delivers incredible results you can see and feel after just seven days! We’ve broken it down for you here in three easy to follow steps:
Cleanse as you normally would in the morning and at night. We recommend the Non-Negotiables® AM + PM Cleanser Duo, but be sure to try our latest Divine Elixir Luminous Skin Facial Cleansing Oil to effortlessly melt away waterproof makeup and sunscreen. The oil cleanser can be used as either a first step, if you’re a fan of double cleansing, or as your standalone cleanser, especially if you have really dry or sensitive skin.
Depending on your skin type, step up your exfoliating routine with either of these two options:
If you currently exfoliate every other day, step it up to every day. Alternate using the Non-Negotiables® Multi-Acid Resurfacing Pads and Non-Negotiables® DermAppeal® Microdermabrasion Treatment
If you currently exfoliate daily, increase to 2x per day. Use DermAppeal in the AM and the resurfacing pads at night. Be sure not to rinse off the formula after using the pads. You’ll want to leave it on to let it work its magic throughout the night!
Please note: Exfoliating with the multi-acid pads can cause sun sensitivity. Be sure to wear a natural SPF of 30 that physically blocks both UVA and UVB rays.
After using either DermAppeal or the resurfacing pads, saturate your skin with an entire dropper full of the Divine Elixir Luminous Skin Oil. Continue to spot treat dry areas throughout the day. Please note: No other skincare is needed during these 7 days.
Speeds up cell turn over with a combination of chemical and physical exfoliants
Chemical and physical exfoliation provides different benefits. The Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) and Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) are chemical exfoliants found in the Multi-Acid Resurfacing Pads. That means that even though you are physically scrubbing your skin with DermAppeal, these acids like Glycolic + Lactic Acid, which are AHA's, provide mild exfoliation that breaks down dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Meanwhile, Salicylic Acid, a BHA, penetrates deep into pores to unclog and control sebum.
Partnering a physical exfoliant, like DermAppeal with a chemical exfoliant allows the physical exfoliant to easily remove the dead skin cells and grime that were effectively broken down by the AHA’s and BHA found within the Multi-Acid Resurfacing Pads.
Allows for deeper penetration of the oil
Unclogging pores and removing all forms of build-up, dead dry skin, and oil allows for a clear path for nutrient-dense oils to penetrate the skin. Just like how you wouldn’t put skincare on unwashed skin, exfoliated skin is the best vehicle to allow your skin to effectively and efficiently soak-up and optimally absorb all of the firming, nourishing, and anti-aging benefits the Luminous Skin Face Oil has to offer. This leaves the skin saturated and full of all those incredibly important fatty acids. And as Dimitri would say, “plump like a baby.” Who wouldn’t want baby soft skin?
Speeds up Collagen Production
As we age, our skin slows down its natural collagen production which is what helps keep our skin looking firm and youthful. Regular exfoliation can help promote collagen response in the skin that results in a complexion that looks more rejuvenated, youthful, glowing, and most importantly, healthy!
We really can't think of a better time to try the 7 Day Soak than during this at-home quarantine. We’re certain you’ll experience results you can see and feel. Go on, get your glow on gorgeous!
