What to expect with Enozo skincare?Excellent! You’ve just taken your first step to reap the benefits of Enozo Skincare.
So you’ve read all the info, purchased the product – deserve an award for being patient enough to wait for delivery and liked what you’ve seen so far… now what?
Just slather it on? Hang on a second…
It’s time for the patch test
Wait, a patch what?…It’s when you apply a new product to a small, discreet patch of skin, like behind your ear or even on the inside of your elbow. Ideally wait 24 hours so you can look for signs of redness or irritation. It’s simply to get a feel for the product and to assess how your skin reacts to the ozonides and accompanying ingredients.
If you got a little excited and already rubbed your new cream all over, it’s going to be fine. But if you feel a stinging or tingling sensation that lasts for longer than 5 minutes and you look in the mirror and see a pink, slightly puffy version of yourself staring back at you, just wash the area you tested with water and a gentle cleanser, and then follow up with a basic moisturiser that you’ve used in the past. No, you don’t have to throw your new product out at this point. This just means that your skin is a little more sensitive to ozonides than most and that you have to work your way up to get that tolerance down.
It should however still be an enjoyable experience, so if the product is too much maybe try introducing it on alternating days and in small quantities to adjust to the product or the ozone you are attempting. Try the moisturiser on the same small area of skin the following day again and see how it reacts. If after a solid week of attempts and the discomfort persists… I’m sad to say but then Ozone might not be your friend.
Good habits you say?
Great skin is not simply a matter of DNA — your daily habits, in fact, have a big impact on what you see in the mirror. But depending on which
product reviews you read or doctors you consult, there is a dizzying number of opinions on everything from how to moisturise to how to protect yourself from UV rays. Ultimately, caring for your skin is simply personal. Here’s what you should keep in mind to establish a good foundation:
Think of your skincare routine as consisting of three main steps:
• Cleansing — Washing your face.
• Moisturising — Hydrating and softening the skin.
• Protection (Sunscreen) — Sun Protection against harmful UV Rays.
The goal of any skincare routine is to tune up your complexion so it’s functioning at its best, and also troubleshoot or target any areas you want to work on. As your skin needs shifts with age, so will your products – it’s not about creating perfection.
Allow these steps to become your daily ritual that fortifies your skin and grounds your day. Welcome to the world of Activated Oxygen and love your
What to expect?
On your first application you will experience an immediate feeling of Hydration. As the Ozone is absorbed and the fresh Ozone scent starts to subside, you will notice that the scent changes to other tones such as green tea, chamomile, lavender and more.
Once the Ozone starts to absorb into your skin you may possibly notice a slight tingling or “heated” sensation for a minute or two. Please do not be alarmed as this is temporary and very normal. It simply means that your skin is now adapting to the new formula and the ozonides of your new product.
Simply continue using the product and over time, the odd sensations will subside as your skin builds a tolerance toward the Ozone and the accompanying ingredients. After 6 weeks or so the odd sensations will be a thing of the past.
Your skin should start to feel clean, smooth and hydrated within a couple of days.
If you are noticing any resultant skin breakouts within the first month, this is very likely due to the ozonides clearing your skin tissue from toxins. Just soldier through, because once the skin breakouts start to clear you can consider your skin ‘detoxed’ and can now start to repair itself within a
Note: The product or moisturiser you are attempting however should never burn or sting.
If any reaction to the product is too much or overwhelming… no fret, simply wash the product off with warm water and gentle soap. Should this be the case, don’t lose hope, simply refer to our “Patch Test” section.
Give It Time
The science behind skincare products has come a long way but there’s still no such thing as an instant fix — you need time to reap the benefits. Results are only seen through consistent use.
Generally, aim to use a product over at least six weeks, once or twice daily, to notice a difference.
You’ve navigated the inevitable adjustment period and emerged triumphantly. Congratulations! From here on out your skin should be much happier, stronger with very little if any breakouts. Excess oil production should start to reduce creating a good balance for what your skin needs and your skin should look smooth and radiant!
