Skin Types

DRY/MATURE SKIN

Dry and/or mature skin tends to be just that – dry and thin with small or invisible pores. Common skin complaints include dehydration, tight skin, fine lines and/or wrinkles and premature aging.

COMBINATION SKIN

Combination skin types don’t struggle with overly oily or overly dry skin and typically consider themselves to have “normal” skin. When their skin is out of balance, they may experience sensitivity, breakouts, redness and/or inflammation.

OILY SKIN

Oily skin types usually have thicker skin, larger pores and are oily in the T-zone. Common skin imbalances include excessive oiliness, cystic acne and/or blackheads. If you can put a tissue anywhere on your face and absorb oil, this is your line!

NOTE: Our skin changes with the seasons, so those who are on the cusp of two skin types may need to adjust seasonally. For instance, if you are on the cusp of dry and combination skin, you may need the dry kit in the fall/winter and the combination kit in the warmer months. Feel free to contact us at [email protected] if you need help determining which kit is best for you.

Return of the Beauty Ritual

In the chaos of life in this millennium, BLOOM believes in taking the time to connect the modern woman with her true femininity. We don’t offer a general cleanser or moisturizer – we offer a personalized beauty ritual to practice daily and enjoy with deep satisfaction.

 Step 1: GLOW and POLISH

Dampen your face with water. Put a dime-size amount of GLOW onto a cotton ball/pad and swipe your eyes and face clean of makeup. Put a scoop of POLISH into the palm of your hand and add a dime-size amount of GLOW and a few drops of water. For morning and evening use, make a paste and rub lightly onto your face for about 30 seconds. For a deep cleansing mask, leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse well and pat dry. {Extremely sensitive skin types should only POLISH once daily}

Step 2: HYDRATE and NOURISH

Spritz your face liberally with HYDRATE. Do not dry. Gently rub two drops* of NOURISH into your skin and allow to soak in. If you are feeling dry, apply NOURISH directly to your skin after using POLISH. *(Start with 1-2 drops and increase as needed.)

Step 3: RESTORE

Apply a small amount of RESTORE to the area around the eyes and elsewhere on the face, as needed. The area between the eye brows and the “laugh lines” next to the mouth are especially nice.

Enjoy your beauty. Enjoy your BLOOM.
