Nothing can compare to the fabulously glowing skin results you can get with an in-clinic treatment. There are times though, that life takes over and as much as you desperately want to get in for a treatment, there are too many other priorities. You still want to look your best for your holiday parties and family visits, so what do you do? Here are our top five pre-party at home treatments:



Quickest Fix: For when you have only 10 minutes!


Product(s) needed: Patchology Flash Sheet Masque of your choosing.


Treatment: Apply your choice of Patchology Flash Masque to clean skin.  Let sit for 5-20 and remove, massaging in any remaining serum from the masque. If desired, finish with your favorite lightweight moisturizer.

Brightening Vitamin C Blast: Perfect for dull looking, dehydrated skin


Products needed: Dermaquest C-Infusion Cleanser, Vivier Vitamin C Scrub, Dermaquest C-Infusion Masque (This is enough product for 20+ at home treatments)


Treatment:  Dampen your face with warm water and massage in a dime sized amount of the C-Infusion Cleanser, rinse. Massage in a cherry sized amount of the Vivier Vitamin C Scrub for 2-3 minutes.  Wrap your face in towel saturated (then wrung out) with warm water, let sit for 2 min, then use towel to gently remove scrub.  While face is still damp, layer the Dermaquest C-Infusion Masque 1-2mm thick over the entire face, let sit for 10 min and remove with warm water and a soft cloth.  Finish with your favorite serum and moisturizer.


Two Day Tone Up: When you can start the night before. Great for diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.


Products Needed: Dermaquest Mini Pumpkin Masque, Patchology Night Time Eye Gels, Dermaquest Hydrating B5 Gel, SkinCeuticals B5 Masque.


Treatment: Apply to clean skin, a thin layer of the Dermaquest Mini Pumpkin Masque, avoiding the eye area.  Leave on for 5-15 minutes. Remove with warm water and soft cloth. Once masque is removed apply the Dermaquest Hydrating B5 Gel to the entire face, following with Patchology Night Eye gels, these will sit for 5-20 minutes. Once removed, gently massage in any remaining serum left over from the gels.  You are now ready to apply 1-2 mm of the B5 Masque to the face.  Once it has absorbed mostly, go to bed, sleeping in the masque. In the morning remove with a gentle cleanser, re-applying the Hydrating B5 Serum and finishing with your favorite moisturizer.



Breakout Banisher: Perfect for Acne prone skin with mild inflammation.


Products: SkinCeuticals Clairifying Clay Masque, SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Masque, Dermaquest Essential Moisture

Remove with warm water and a soft cloth.  Finish with Dermaquest Essential Moisturizer.


Products: Dermaquest Algae Polishing Scrub, Vivier Kine C, Vivier Ultra Replenishing Hydrating Masque.


Treatment: After cleansing, massage Dermaquest Algae Polishing Scrub gently into damp skin for 3 minutes. Remove with warm water. Blot skin dry with a soft cloth, apply 3-4 drops of the Vivier Kine C Serum.  Once absorbed, apply an even layer of the Vivier Ultra Replenishing Hydrating Masque, massaging in as much as will absorb, and still leaving 1-2 mm on the skin. This can sit for 20-30 minutes.  Remove with soft cloth, dampened with warm water.  If desired, finish with your favorite moisturizer.  For maximum dewiness, you can sleep in the Vivier Ultra Hydrating Masque the night before.
