Handy Hints, Snippets Of Information, And Other Helpful Resources That Didn’t Seem To Fit Anywhere Else! We Hope You Find Them Useful!
Don’t Stop At Your Face!
Make sure you always extend the application of your Synergie skincare products to your neck and décolleté – and your hands too!
Investing in high-quality, medical-grade skincare like Synergie will produce great results for your facial skin, but it’s important to extend the benefits of the products to your neck and décolleté too. These areas are particularly prone to aging, as the skin is thinner and especially susceptible to sun damage – and lines associated with how we sleep*.
The Synergie line includes a product especially formulated for the neck/décolleté (Elastense), but even if you don’t use this specialized item, you can still ensure this area is well looked after simply by wiping your palms on the skin of your neck and décolleté, after applying your usual serums and creams to your face.
Similarly, aging hands can be quite a concern for many of us. Synergie has a dedicated cosmeceutical hand cream (Hand ResQ) to target the hands – but it’s also a great idea to finish off the application of your serums and creams by rubbing your palms across the backs of your hands, making use of every last drop, so that your hands/neck/décolleté all look like they’re the same age…
*TAL editorial aside: Aren’t those vertical lines in the décolleté so annoying? If you can make yourself sleep on your back all night, great! A client once told me she taught herself to sleep all night on her back to avoid decolleté lines by putting a crocodile clip in the hair on each side of her head above her ears; they make it too uncomfortable to lie sideways!
Daily Routine: The Basics of Using Synergie Skincare
Did you know that there is a specific “order” in which to use your skincare products? It’s pretty simple really, and is summarized below.
- Basic routine is Cleanse → ” Treat “→ Moisturize / Protect
- Use thinnest product to thickest (i.e. more liquid/runny first)
- Wait ~5 minutes after applying serums, before applying moisturizers.
- Vitamins A and B are compatible but never mix or use at the same time as either form of vitamin C.
- Use vitamin C in the morning and vitamins A+B in the evening.
- One pump should be sufficient for the face and neck.
