From cleansers and mists to oils and serums - understanding the proper order of your OM skin products can be understandably confusing. So we’ve taken it upon ourselves to create a guide to your skincare regimen and share the suggested order to apply products for maximum efficacy. Reveal radiance from morning to night with OM.
Step 1: Cleanse
In our opinion - the most important step in any good skincare routine! Cleansing removes the dirt, sweat and makeup our complexions are subject to throughout the day, resulting in a clean, clear canvas for the rest of your products.
White Willow Purifying Cleanser is a beautiful daily cleanser for all skin types. This gel has a silky and sudsy texture that deeply cleanses while maintaining the integrity of healthy oils that lock in moisture. Relieve skin irritations and blemishes with a combination of white willow bark and sandalwood.
Blue Azul Soothing Cleansing Oil is a cleanser meant for normal, dry, and sensitive skin types. This formulation combines skin soothing oils and botanicals to remove impurities while easing inflammation and redness. Pro tip: apply to a cotton pad and use as a gentle makeup remover!
Keep in mind, the general rule of thumb post-cleanse is to apply your products from lightest to heaviest!
Step 2: Mist
Next up is your OM Face Mist! Mist onto skin and remove with a cotton pad to catch any leftover dirt or makeup post cleanse and prime skin for the beautiful botanical ingredients coming up next. Mists absorb quickly into the skin and actually help enhance the absorption and spreadability of elixirs, oils and creams.
Pink Coconut Hydrating Face Mist is a moisture-enhancing mist that infuses the skin with nutrients to restore suppleness for a glowing complexion. Coconut water instantly rehydrates, providing a renewed glow, while rose water and aloe reduce redness and inflammation.
Spirulina Tonic Clarifying Face Mist is a lightly hydrating mist formulated for problematic, sensitive and combination skin. Spirulina is rich in vitamins and eliminates toxins from the skin, while increasing skin metabolism to enable faster skin cell turnover and skin healing.
Step 3: Exfoliate or Masque
A relaxing ritual for the skin that we like to indulge in 1-2 times/week, our selection of treatments are a wonderful way to detoxify or provide an intense dose of whatever it is your complexion is craving!
Cocoa Coffee Exfoliating Dust is a blend of energizing coffee dust, antioxidant-rich vanilla and cleansing clays that stimulate and refine skin’s appearance, leaving it velvety smooth and radiant. The perfect way to clear away dead skin cells and revitalize a tired complexion.
Superfruit AHA Brightening Masque exfoliates the skin to deliver instant softness.Thanks to a unique blend of superfruit complexes and alpha hydroxy acids, skin feels smooth, rejuvenated and nourished.
Charcoal + Matcha Detoxifying Masque helps clarify your complexion while delivering a burst of antioxidants. While charcoal draws out bacteria and other micro-particles, matcha and French green clay detoxify to leave skin feeling revitalized, soft and balanced.
Step 4: Treat
Now is the time to treat! At this stage, skin has been cleansed from impurities and dead skin cells, and is ready for any treatments necessary! Your most active skin care products should be applied now.
Clarity Blemish Treatment is our favourite blemish-busting spot treatment that heals and treats breakouts thanks to a potent combination of blue tansy oil, black cumin seed oil and brightening Rosehip oil. Pro tip: add a drop or two to your favourite elixir, masque or moisturizer to help prevent future breakouts!
Step 5: Elixir
Our powerhouse elixirs (AKA serums) provide skin with a concentrated blend of ingredients that promote various benefits for your skin care needs. These should be applied before your moisturizer as the small molecular size means they penetrate deeply into skin. This helps skin retain water and maintain hydration, while boosting the effects of your moisturizer.
Pure + Calm Infusion Perfecting Elixir is a high performance serum that delivers an instant dose of active herbal extracts to minimize redness and inflammation. This oil-free formula is instantly absorbed with hyaluronic acid which works to keep the skin plump and hydrated.
Youth Infusion Age Defying Elixir contains hard-working Tripeptide-29 to dramatically increase the production of collagen. Hyaluronic acid penetrates deeply into the skin to plump and hydrate while tamarind seed and powerful green algae improve skin elasticity and smoothness.
Step 6: Face Oil
Our face oils are loaded with skin loving omegas, antioxidants and botanical extracts that deeply nourish, lock in moisture and encourage a smooth, hydrated complexion. Apply 1-5 drops to clean, slightly damp skin. Pro tip: Try out our OM protocol for a custom skin solution!
Marula + Cactus Age Defying Face Oil encourages a youthful glow while infusing the skin with antioxidants and nourishing hydration. Marula, prickly pear, and evening primrose oils provide beneficial fatty acids, defend against free radical damage and increase firmness and elasticity.
Rosehip + Black Cumin Perfecting Face Oil provides lightweight and fast-absorbing nourishment while reducing redness and clarifying your complexion. Rosehip, cranberry and black cumin oils are blended to instantly hydrate, improve skin tone, texture and pigmentation.
Step 7: Moisturize
Before applying moisturizer, reach for your favourite OM eye product! Apply a very small amount to the under eye area and follow around the orbital bone. While your eye cream is absorbing into your skin, apply your moisturizer. The final step in any good skincare routine, moisturizers help hydrate, smooth and create a protective barrier to keep the good stuff in and the bad stuff out!
Cucumber Tea Brightening Eye Serum helps eliminate dark circles and puffiness. Cucumber and caffeine work together to eliminate excess fluid build-up and ease inflammation, while bilberry delivers oxygen rich blood to all layers of the skin.
Bilberry Balm Antioxidant Eye Concentrate is a soft, waterless balm that is rich, gentle and concentrated to reduce the appearance of fine lines, puffiness and dark circles.
Our best selling Coconut Dew Hyaluronic Moisture Cream is ultra-hydrating, yet lightweight leaving your skin visibly balanced and supple. Coconut water instantly rehydrates while marula oil deeply hydrates, nourishes and improves skin. Moisture is retained for maximum hydration throughout the day with the help of hyaluronic acid, leaving you with a dewy, radiant glow.
