5-step weekly skin care regime - once or twice per week
Supplement your daily regime with exfoliator and mask.
Cleansers remove make-up and environmental impurities from the surface of the skin. Cleansing products from Raintree Organics skin care not only clean your skin but also hydrate, revitalize and invigorate leaving a radiant, silky and healthy complexion.
Directions: Apply a small amount of cleanser suited to your skin type over entire face and neck area and massage it in gently for 30-60 seconds moving your fingertips in circular motions, then wipe off with damp face towel or cotton pad. Use it daily as the first step of your skin care regime, followed by a refreshing toner.
Cleansing Concentrates from Raintree's organic Garden Professional Spa skin care Line http://raintree-organics.myshopify.com/collections/garden-line-for-professioanl-spa-use soften and remove dead skin cells, which enables the skin to self-purify and allows more effective absorption of other skin care products. Cleansing concentrates provide a gentle and convenient daily exfoliation as part of a daily skin regime and are especially effective for specific skin conditions.
Directions: Mix a small amount of cleansing concentrate with water in hands. Apply and massage into skin with fingertips for 1 to 3 minutes in a circular motion covering the entire face and neck and avoiding the eye area. Remove completely with damp face towel and follow with a refreshing toner. Use 1-2 times a day. Use also on problematic areas of the back and decollete.
step 2: toning
Toners refresh and balance the skin and remove excess impurities. Raintree Organics toners contain organic herbal extracts that balance the skin's natural pH level while revitalizing the skin with vitamins and minerals.
Directions: Apply toner over entire cleansed skin surface with a cotton pad and leave on. Use twice a day after cleansing or mask to remove excess products, or anytime your skin needs to be refreshed. Finish with serum and moisturizer.
step 3: exfoliating
Exfoliation brings vibrancy and smoothness to the skin. Regular exfoliation removes the build-up of the hard keratin layer and allows better absorption of other skin care products. Exfoliation unplugs pores and makes skin clear and even. For mature skin, exfoliation helps remove dry flakes, revive fatigued skin and reduce fine lines.
Directions: Apply a thin layer of one of Raintree Organics Body or face exfoliator to your skin after cleansing and leave on or rub it on your skin until it dries. Leave on for 15 minutes for optimal results. Gently scrub off with a damp face towel. Follow with a mask or one of our special treatments and finish with a moistirizer possibly supplemented with a serum.
step 4: treating
Regular use of a facial mask improves the health and elasticity of skin and can be used to control acne, rosacea, dryness, oiliness or other skin conditions. Masks and special treatments from Raintree organic's contain high amounts of concentrated vitamins and ingredients rich in nutrients such as bioflavonoids, peptides, pectins and phytoestrogens and are as varied and uniquely crafted as our moisturizers.
Directions: Apply to cleansed skin over entire face and neck area and leave on for 15-20 minutes for optimal results. Remove with a damp face towel. Finish with toner, serum and moisturizer. Use 1-2 times per week or as otherwise directed. Exfoliation increases the effect of masks.
step 5: moisturizing
Moisturizers hydrate and soften skin. Even oily skin needs a light moisturizer to maintain softness and suppleness. Select from a range of Raintree Organics moisturizers created for specific skin types and conditions.
Whip Moisturizers have fruit and herbal extracts with an acidic pH maintaining the acidic environment in which herbal ingredients can be activated effectively. These fine, light creams require only a small amount for use on specific conditions or for the maintenance of flawless skin.
Moisturizers are slightly richer with a pH level close to neutral.
Rich Moisturizers are created with very high herbal oil content for the treatment of oil deficient skin.
Directions: Apply a thin layer of moisturizer over entire face and neck area after cleansing and toning skin. Enrich moisturizer with one of our serums or oil concentrates to achieve an even more radiant complexion. Use it as a final step of your daily regime in the morning and the evening or use as otherwise directed. Moisturizers and rich moisturizers may be used as night creams for most skin types. Rich moisturizers are suitable to reduce the appearance of fine lines (eg. around the eye area) or treat lack of elasticity, and even prevent stretch marks (eg. during pregnancy).
enhancing the moisturizer for special skin needs or conditions
To maximize your resulst and skin care regime, adding serum treatments and oil concentrates to address specific skin conditions are key to having great looking skin. Due to the high herbal active ingredient concentration, only a small amount is needed for the treatment of conditions such as acne, rosacea, imbalanced sebum production, fine lines and wrinkles or lack of elasticity. A lecithin cover on the molecules of our liposome gels aids their absorption into the skin. Our herbal oils have very high levels of Vitamin E, so they not only protect and regenerate the skin, but also compensate the lipid film deficiency and decrease inflammation as well.
Directions: After cleansing and toning apply serum and massage in with circular motions on entire face and neck area avoiding the eyes. Apply moisturizer over serum and leave them on your skin. If you have oilier skin: Apply serum as a cream substitute in the summer or under very humid weather conditions. Use 2-3 times daily or as otherwise directed. Based on your skin condition use the herbal oils of Raintree Organics to enrich your moisturizer.
It is never too early or too late to start caring for those fine lines. Generally speaking, the sooner you start a preventative skin care regime, the greater the result that can be achieved. If you are over 25 we recommend you begin using our eye contour treatment. Should you have deeper wrinkles, our Wrinkle Eliminator Serum may be more effective.
Directions: apply a small amount of cream, serum or oil around your eyes with a gentle tapping motion. Do not pull the sensitive skin around the eye area. For extra hydration or deep layer oil deficiency apply a thicker layer in dry areas of body or face. Use it as a final step of your daily skin care regime in the morning and the evening.

Special Care Tip
Skin is affected by factors like changing seasons, your lifestyle, even hormones, so re-evaluate your skincare routine regularly. Be sure to exfoliate on a regular basis—this helps stimulate cell turnover and sloughs off dead skin cells, which can make skin look dull and prevent your foundation from going on smoothly. And remember: sunscreen every day is always a beauty “do”.
