As the body’s largest organ, the skin functions as a natural detoxifier. It works hard to filter out toxins and pollutants, but sometimes it just needs a little boost. When environmental aggressors, product buildup, and stress cause skin to look lackluster, a detox cleansing ritual is essential to removing dirt and impurities and helping skin stay pure and healthy.
Luzern’s Double Detox Cleansing Ritual was designed to experience the luxury of both deeply cleansed and profoundly hydrated skin. Beginning with a dual cleansing treatment that includes a deep oil cleanse and a detoxifying facial masque, followed by specialty serums and a nutrient-rich moisturizer, the Detox Cleansing Ritual provides luxuriously clean and effective skincare.
Step 1: Double Detox Cleansing
Consuming plenty of water, fresh fruits, and vegetables helps the skin flush out toxins from the inside. But to thoroughly remove product buildup from the skin’s surface, a double cleanse is essential, especially in the evening.
- In the first step of the Double Detox Cleansing Ritual, you will begin with Luzern's Nuit Hydra Cleansing Emulsion -- a deeply pampering and rejuvenating treatment that melts away makeup and loosens congestion.
- Remove a nickel-size dollop of our Hydra Cleansing Emulsion, using Luzern’s branded spatula.
- With dry hands, emulsify the cleansing balm by rubbing your palms together to activate the natural fragrances designed to deeply relax and de-stress the body and mind.
- Apply balm to dry skin and gently massage in for 30-60 seconds, using slow, firm upward and outward movements.
- Massaging the skin helps to improve blood flow and activate your lymph nodes, which helps to eliminate built-up toxins.
- Upon completion, wet your fingertips, and work product through again. Once in contact with water, the Hydra Cleansing Emulsion immediately transforms into a milky lotion. Do not remove the balm.
- Following the application of the cleansing balm, you will apply the La Defense Detox Cleansing Masque. Luzern’s detoxifying cleansing masque is beneficial whenever skin needs a boost in removing deep-set dirt and impurities. Apply a nickel-size dollop of Luzern Detox Cleansing Masque over Hydra Cleansing Balm. Massage Cleansing Masque into skin and concentrate on any areas of congestion and embedded impurities. Upon completion, gently remove both layers with a warm cloth compress or Luzern Cleansing Mitt. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
Step 2: Essence
Refresh and replenish skin with L’Essentials Toning Essence. Choose between our hydrating or balancing essence, depending on your skin’s individual needs. Shake a few drops of the toning essence onto the palm of your hand (or a cotton pad) and apply with pressing motion onto the face and neck, moving from the center outwards. No rinsing necessary.
Step 3: Hydrate
Follow the Detox Cleansing Ritual by applying your favorite Luzern Serums to target specific skin concerns, followed by a Luzern moisturizer, which can help lock in optimum hydration. The Nuit line is specially formulated to maximize the rejuvenating power of sleep, with a complete program to firm and smooth the feel of skin, and even out the appearance of pigmentation so you wake up looking refreshed and glowing in the morning.
When to use it:
Luzern’s Detox Cleansing Ritual is recommended once a week or whenever skin needs a detoxifying lift. It is intended as a profoundly pampering and rejuvenating enhancement to your nighttime beauty routine, so skin can reap optimal rewards while you sleep.
