Valérie, Odacité Founder
Q: What Odacité routine do you recommend for mature, dry skin?
A: We recommend a double cleanse beginning with the Blue Aura Cleansing Water, followed by the Gentle Rejuvenating Cleanser. These products work wonderfully together because the Blue Aura Cleansing Water is a nice way to remove makeup and the Gentle Cleanser will further cleanse the skin without stripping it.
Bioactive Rose Gommage (twice weekly): This is great for gently exfoliating without drying the skin.
Aloe + Immortelle Hydra-Repair Treatment Mist: Not only is this smell wonderful but the plant oils are a nice way to dampen the skin and maintain a balanced pH prior to applying your Serum Concentrates.
Last but certainly not least we love the Oleosomes Time Release Delivery Cream. It does a beautiful job of occluding all of the products that we’ve applied without leaving your skin feeling weighed down.
Q: What is the difference between dry vs dehydrated skin?
A: We inherit our skin types such as dry or oily skin. However, people who are born with oily skin may experience concerns such as dehydration if we’re internally or topically lacking hydration. The wonderful news is that dehydration can be managed through diet, self-care, our skincare routine, and sleep. Many intrinsic and extrinsic factors affect the skin causing temporary concerns such as dehydration. This is why we love Serum Concentrates so much. They allow us to treat the skin in such a way that is tailored to our individual needs as they arise.
Q: I have dry skin but I’m afraid of breaking out, I’ve heard oils are a good way to care for your skin. What do you recommend I try first?
A: We love the use of oils for all skin types, it’s a matter of finding the right oils for your skin concerns. If you have congested skin or are prone to breakouts we recommend Jo+L Clogged Pores Serum Concentrate as well as our favorite serum concentrate which is Ca+R Vital Glow, we use this any and every chance we get.
Q: Why is the Temple of Beauty Facial a good option for dry or dehydrated skin?
A: This treatment allows us to address many concerns because the entire experience is customized, from the Gua Sha Stone you choose to the aromatics being used, along with the many ways we can customize the various steps in the facial.
The Gua Sha will help stimulate blood flow which will aid in the production of the sebaceous glands (they secrete oil) to help with dehydrated and dry skin. It will also allow for continuous positive results because of the ability to tap into the parasympathetic nervous system during your experience, leaving you rejuvenated.
