LUX Skincare: Regimen Tips by Arcona Studio

Seeking to turn back the clock? ARCONA’s Spa Director Allison Marks walks us through Dry, Oily and/or combination skin, and shares with us what the best regimens are for our respective skin type.

Allison: Arcona suggests our Basic Five System for Dry, Oily and the Normal Starter Kit for Combination Skin.  Our Basic Five Systems are designed to balance the skin, increase cell turnover and create overall age management.
Dry, Oily, and Combination Skin types each will benefit from a daily Vitamin C antioxidant Serum  (ARCONA’S Youth Serum contains 20% Vitamin C as well as potent antioxidants such as Resveratrol).  Vitamin C will not only protect skin from the environment but also brighten and build collagen and elastin.

Dry, Normal, and Oily skin types will each benefit from a Retinol such as ARCONA’S Advanced A Serum.  Retinol is the gold standard to treat all skin types as it improves overall appearance of discolorations, photo-damage, fine lines, wrinkles and works to clear acne.  It won’t sensitize the skin like a prescription as it contains additional ingredients such as Matrixyl synthe 6 and Matrixyl 3000 peptides to further rebuild collagen and elastin. 
All skin types, including Dry need to cleanse, exfoliate, hydrate, and protect with SPF to turn back the clock.  Regular exfoliation removes the top layer of skin cells helping ensure active products applied can readily penetrate.  A double cleanse at night is also important for these skin types.  One cleanse is not sufficient to thoroughly remove makeup,  oil, sunscreen and debris collected on the skin from the day.  Oily and combination skin types benefit from lightweight hydration containing water binding ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid vs. rich oil based moisturizers.  All skin types need to wear sun protection each day, even on rainy cloudy days!  We also recommend an Eye Product AM and PM for the eye area as they are preventative and corrective, specifically calibrated with active ingredients for the eye area.

Thank you Allison and to Arcona for keeping my skin youthful and refreshed, get the look.
