Colder weather tends to dry out my skin…how many times per day should I moisturize?
JC: Twice a day, AM and PM, after cleansing. If you still feel dry after moisturizing due to cold weather, apply a second layer! This should do the trick. If you need more, use more, but if you can’t seem to get the moisture benefits you need then you need a much better moisturizer! You will get what you pay for when it comes to caring for your skin.

Should I moisturize before applying foundation? Why or why not?
JC: Always before. You want all that luscious moisture to be absorbed and to do it’s job without trying to penetrate makeup or any other products or sun screen.

How many times a day should I cleanse my face? I normally do morning and night, but is that too much? Or not enough?
JC: Always twice. AM and PM. If you’ve having a super packed day or late night and can only get to it once, then be sure to do your cleansing and skin care routine before bed!

What temperature water is the best for skin care?
JC: Always tepid. Never hot! If you experience breakouts, it’s best to use cool water until the breakout is cleared. Warmer to hot temperatures increase inflammation to the skin and any skin conditions, so avoid it when possible. If your having a professional facial or skin treatment your specialist may use hot temperatures as part of the ‘treatment’ and should be well versed about the specific care and treatment of your individual skin’s needs- just don’t try it at home.
