Kit #3 is for the elevated alchemist, the alchemist who desires to not only keep the occasional breakout at bay, but also desires to reverse the signs of aging. The combo of oil cleansing + Vitamin C + Serum + micro needling provides major, transformational skin benefits.
Step 1: Cleanse your face with the cleansing oil
Your skin journey starts with daily oil cleansing with the AlKIMme Cleansing Oil. This method, of cleansing the skin with oil, will deeply clean your skin without stripping its essential barrier. The oil cleanser works by gently penetrating your pores, helping to dissolve the stubborn, thick sebum that causes breakouts and cystic acne. The cleansing oil removes the thick sebum and gently exfoliates the dead cells that often accompany breakouts and acne, but it leaves your skin soft and hydrated so that your sebaceous glands don’t go on full attack and create MORE oil!!!!!
To use: Apply two to three pumps of cleansing oil to the palms of your hands and apply to your skin, either wet or dry (Kim personally recommends using it on warm, wet skin). Allow it to deeply penetrate into your skin by gently massaging with your fingertips in circular motions, this will help to break down the stubborn oils in your pores as well as aid in exfoliation. Now you must remove the oil, by gently sweeping a washcloth over your skin in circular motions, this will leave your skin clean, exfoliated, and glowing.
Note: Always remove the cleansing oil with a warm, wet washcloth (a microfiber or baby wash cloth is preferable, however a normal wash cloth works well too) and be sure to use a fresh, clean cloth each and every time you cleanse your skin.
Step 2: Apply the Vitamin C
The next step in your skin transformation is the use of the AlKIMme Vitamin C serum. ALKIMme Vitamin C is a true miracle worker! This topical antioxidant is a superhero for your skin that will help to reduce acne scars, pigmentation, and pore size. Wrinkles and fine lines will fade, and over time disappear, your skin will glow with transformational radiance. After cleansing, apply the ALKIMme Vitamin C to your skin, making sure to cover any area you plan to treat.
To use: Apply two to three pumps of AlKIMme Vitamin C, thoroughly, to your face, neck, décolleté, and any other area you plan to treat with the roller.
Note: For maximum benefits, allow the Vitamin C to sit on your skin for two transformational minutes before applying the Serum.
Step 3: Apply the Serum
The next stop on your skin journey is the Serum. The Serum is a super-charged moisturizer for your face, neck, and décolleté and also acts as a highly hydrating and non-irritating eye serum. This rich, oil-free hyaluronic acid gel helps to seal in the skin’s natural moisture, repairing and replenishing vital nutrients. This results in smoother, hydrated, and younger looking skin. Now you’re ready to ROLL . . . derma roll that is.
To use: Apply two to three pumps of the Serum to your face, neck, décolleté, and other area you plan to treat with the roller.
Note: After your micro needling treatment, apply the Serum under your eyes as an eye serum.
Step 4: Micro Needling
The final step is micro needling (also known as derma rolling), this kit comes with two rollers, in two different needle lengths. We have teamed up the 0.2mm roller with her sister, the 0.5mm roller, which takes micro needling up a notch. First, is the 0.2mm length roller which is meant to be used three to five times per week to help the ALKIMme skin care ninjas penetrate into your skin. The other is the 0.5mm length roller. The 0.5mm roller is awesome at treating the skin on a deeper level by creating micro channels in the skin and creating a micro injury, also known as collagen induction. This helps your skin to heal from within which helps to reduce pigmentation and pore size as well as tone and firm your skin, basically bringing your skin back a few years. But you don’t have to have aging skin to benefit from this kit as it is always better to be proactive with your skin than reactive. So whether you’re looking to reverse the signs of aging or looking for preventative measures, this kit KICKS ASS!!!!!
To Use: Soak your roller in a minimum of 70% alcohol for 10 minutes. Allow your roller to dry in its case with the lid open. Roll each section of your skin horizontally, vertically, and diagonally for a minimum of 4 times in each direction, but no more than a maximum of 10. Treat your skin with the 0.2mm roller three to five times per week. Treat your skin with the 0.5mm roller once every three weeks.
Note: You may finish with one pump of the Vitamin C or Serum, applied all over the skin as a final seal of moisture. Be sure to soak your rollers in alcohol before and after each use. If you drop your roller, replace it, do not roll with bent needles. Do not roll over active, cystic acne.
You can choose to layer your Vitamin C and Serum and roll them both into the skin during your treatment with the 0.2mm roller or you can rotate and choose to roll either the Vitamin C or the Serum. Kim personally likes to do a layer one day a week, then the second time roll the Vitamin C, and the third time roll the Serum (making sure to do the lips as well for an added boost of Hyaluronic Acid hydration and lip plumping goodness).
