Basic and Intensive Routines
If any skin reaction occurs, stop any Basic or Intensive routine immediately and apply Conditioning routine to soothe skin.
Use finger tips to lightly apply products, no rubbing, tugging or patting required. Use the press and roll method to gently massage Sunscreen 5/5M in.
Other than Sunscreen 5/5M, products can be applied immediately over each other with no waiting time required. It is normal for face to feel 'wet' after applying. Allow skin to absorb products normally without patting dry.
Depending on your skin types, you may experience the following skin reactions when applying any DR's Secret routine:
ItchinessThis is usually due to a lack of moisture, hydrate more with Moisturizer 6.
OilinessThis might be experienced at the initial stages as skin is still adapting to the products. Condition will improve with continuous use.
HeatThis is usually a normal response to the skin renewal process, use Refining Serum 9 to cool skin.
TightnessThis may easily be mistaken for skin dryness but is in fact the effects of skin tightening and sculpting
Reddish SkinThis is usually due to increased blood circulation, use Moisturizer 6 and Refining Serum 9 to calm and cool skin.
The process of skin improvement may vary depending on individual skin conditions. You may experience one or more of the following stages:
Roughness & DullnessSkin surface appears rough and dull as rate of skin cell renewal increases, causing old dead skin cells to be accumulated on the surface.
PeelingMicroexfoliation happens at skin surface, natural peeling may occur during this stage.
BlemishesSkin may experience purging during the first few weeks of the transition stage as skin is renewing itself. More sebum may be secreted to achieve a balanced moisture and sebum level.
Brightness & RadianceCompletion of skin renewal treatment, skin is now rejuvenated and radiating from within.
