Q: If I am oily and/or acne-prone, can I use Serum Concentrates?
A: The answer is YES! Our Serum Concentrates are a skin game-changer even for oily and/or acne-prone skin types and here is why- not all oils are created equally and at Odacité, we use only the highest quality and naturally sourced ingredients from around the world to create our serums. Our serums help provide optimal nourishment to the skin, contribute to the overall balance of our natural oil production, and finally use nature’s natural astringent ingredients to help clarify and decongest the skin.
Q: What are 3 essential steps that should be in a balanced skincare routine?
A: Say it with me now- Cleanse. Treat. Exfoliate.
As we all know, an effective yet gentle cleanser is the first imperative step to a proper skincare routine. Without properly cleansed skin, you are walking an uphill battle.
Once you have established cleansed and prepped skin, a great serum will surely change your skin routine. By selecting a customized serum concentrate you are able to address specific skin concerns your skin experiences day-to-day.
And last but not least, exfoliation. Consistent yet gentle exfoliation is key to maintaining a fresh and youthful appearance. The reason being is that as we age, our natural ability to shed dead skin cells slows immensely. This can cause the complexion to appear dull or lackluster. But by incorporating an effective exfoliant it allows the product to do all the heavy lifting. For example, our Bioactive Rose Gommage works to remove all topical dead skin cells while maintaining the precious skin barrier. The result is a soft and bright complexion.
Q: Can I use multiple serums to address my multiple skin concerns in my daily routine?
A: This is a fantastic question. Here at Odacité, we actually actively encourage you to mix your serum concentrates! Everyone’s skin is so incredibly unique that it makes sense that our own personal skin concerns are just as unique. We created 18 incredible and specific Serum Concentrates to address a wide range of concerns. The beauty is that the mixing combinations are endless! You really can achieve a truly customized experience for your skin.
Q: What are your personal MUST-HAVE products?
A: For starters, a great toner can really elevate your skin as it helps to balance the pH and prepare the skin to receive all the nutrients and moisture from your moisturizer and serums. I really enjoy the Rose + Neroli Hydra Vitalizing Treatment Mist as it works perfectly for balancing, hydrating, and minimizing the appearance of the pores. It is formulated for combination, normal and sensitive skin and will help to restore a fresh complexion.
My second must-have is the Spring in Tokyo Youthful Purity Serum. This serum helps to achieve a beautiful and clear complexion. It simultaneously is also amazing at combating the appearance of the first signs of aging, and because of its antioxidant properties, it helps to contribute to neutralizing free radicals. I absolutely recommend this serum if you have adult acne-prone skin. This is friendly for all skin types.
My third and final must-have is the Jojoba Beads Exfoliant.
I love this exfoliant as it renews the skin and minimizes the appearance of pores with ease. It has such a nice soft scent and feels really nourishing on the skin. It is very important to implement this step into your skincare routine at least 2x a week.
This exfoliator is a physical method of exfoliation, but because it uses Jojoba Beads to slough away your dead skin. Jojoba Beads are made from 100% pure and biodegradable natural Jojoba wax, which have no sharp edges. They are superior to other exfoliating agents because they do not leave micro-lacerations. These microscopic cuts could result in premature wrinkles and provide an entrance for bacteria into the skin's surface.
