The Clinique 3 Step Skin Care System. It was my first introduction to skin care - way back when.
I recently revisited this simple 3 Step System. The steps are still the same, but the products have gotten even better.
The 3 Steps are cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize. The products are different for different skin types, though. Or as Clinique says, your skin profile.
Finding out your skin profile is simple. You can either visit your local Clinique counter, or you can fill out an interactive profile online. Your profile will let you know exactly which products you should use.
My recommendations were to start with the Liquid Facial Soap - Extra Mild, follow that with Clarifying Lotion 1, which is a liquid toner, and to finish up with Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. I love the fact that the soap is now in a liquid form for my skin type - it is simple to just pump out of the bottle. And just one little squirt gives me enough to remove all makeup, dirt, and oils from my face. The clarifying lotion removes every last bit of film from my face, and it makes it feel alive - refreshed. Finally, the moisturizing lotion is available in a pump too - and it is still a good daily moisturizer for me.
Make a revisit to the Clinique counter, if you haven't been there recently. And give the 3-Step a try.
