VĪ & ROSE skincare Frequently Asked Questions
How often do I use the VĪ & ROSE System?
The VĪ & ROSE system is a 30-Day system intended for daily use at the end of your day. Face scrub is intended for once a day nighttime use, as to exfoliate and remove the day’s impurities and dead skin. For morning wash, you can rinse your face with warm water and then wipe cotton pad across face with Pre-Cleanse (follow with Glow Spray and a sunscreen).
An 8oz bottle of Pre-Cleanse will be released as an option soon for those who would like to use it as a morning wash or need more for heavier makeup removal.
VĪ & ROSE also has a morning wash in the works, coming soon!
Do I have to use all four steps to achieve great skin?
Steps 1-4 achieves a proper and complete daily skin-care routine. Each step plays an important role in maintaining healthy skin and assisting in the skin's healing process.
1. Pre-cleansing ensures that you are not rubbing makeup/dirt further into your pores with a face wash, but removing before you scrub.
2. Exfoliating scrubs are effective in removing dead skin that clogs pores, which allows cell-turnover and new, healthy skin.
3. Using a toner contributes to removing excess skin product such as sunscreen or makeup. Toners also balance your skin's pH and tightens pores.
4. Completing the four steps is our Glow Spray, which is a vitamin-infused moisturizer. This step is important in the nourishing of your skin and keeping skin supple and hydrated, thus preventing wrinkles, healing blemishes, and protecting against free-radical damage.
For some skin types, adding a heavy moisturizer is not necessary, so our Glow-Spray is sufficient for all skin types to: retain moisture, nourish and aid in skin repair.
Some skin types do require extra moisture.
If a heavier moisturizer works for you, you may continue use. VĪ & ROSE currently has a cream moisturizer in the making!
Much traditional advice recommends you shouldn’t exfoliate every day. Doesn't this degrade the quality of the skin?
The outer layer of skin in both men and women is called the epidermal stratum corneum. You need to exfoliate that before it can even tolerate proper cleansing. Daily damage, age damage, and sun damage need to be exfoliated before the face is truly cleansed.
Why don’t more dermatologists recommend exfoliating every day?
"When most doctors say exfoliation shouldn’t happen every day, they are talking about standard scrubs, which is sandpaper in a bottle. Exfoliating properly is a nightly event. It’s sort of like exercise." (Dr. Harold Lancer who recommends daily exfoliation / dermatologist to celebreties such as Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Oprah and Victoria Beckham)
*VĪ & ROSE uses sugar as the scrub exfoliatant. Sugar is a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the environment into the skin. So it will actually help hydrate your skin and keep moisture within. It is also an extremely gentle exfoliant.
With any exfoliant, make sure you are scrubbing very gently. A lighter scrub is more effective as sugar won't dissolve as quickly.
Why should I keep my products in a cool place?
We recommend keeping products in a cool, dark place because controlled temperature will help retain the product's nutrient content. Your products are safe in any cool place out of direct sunlight.
It is recommended to use your products within a 60-day time period as to get highest potency of vitamins for skin repair.
Because cool temperature preserves, no unwanted additives are needed. Keeping products away from heat and sunlight preserves fresh ingredients by slowing down the growth and reproduction of microorganisms and the action of enzymes that causes the fresh ingredients to lose nutrients.
Don’t all-natural products need preservatives?
Our products are made with essential oils with preservative properties—such as thyme, and tea tree oil.
Can products be used on their own, outside of the step-system?
Yes. Our products are beneficial to use with any skincare products, in the same step-order as our four-step system. For example, you can use another brand's makeup remover, then our scrub, then another products toner, and finally, our Glow Spray. Or whatever other order you may like.
