Flawless Skin: 7-Day Silhöuette Skincare Routine

“The best foundation is proper skincare.” – Anonymous

The secret to flawless skin has been revealed! Silhöuette has created a signature  7-day skincare routine that is proven to fade dark spots, brighten skin, prevent acne, smooth wrinkles, reduce signs of aging, and so much more!

The 7-day skincare routine is composed of 5 different steps, but not every step will be completed every day.

A-E Steps of the Silhöuette Signature Skincare Routine

A) Double Cleansing Method

The method was developed in Korea and quickly became popular all over the world! It involves first using an oil-based cleanser and then following it up with a water-based cleanser. Since oil and water don’t mix, the oil-based cleanser removes oily impurities, like SPF and pollutants and the water-based cleanser removes the impurities with water like sweat and dirt.

  • Part 1 Instructions: Oil Cleanse: Coconut Oil & Tea Tree Oil
    • Mix 1 tsp. of Coconut Oil & a few drops of Tea Tree Oil. Rub the mixture on your face in a circular motion for 30-60 seconds. Wash it off in warm water.
  • Part 2 Instructions: Salicylic Acid Cleanser
    • Use any cleanser that has salicylic acid as an active ingredient. Use the cleanser with a spin brush or a facial sponge for 1-2 minutes before rinsing it off in warm water. We recommend the Neutrogena Acne Proofing Cleanser because it contains maximum strength salicylic acid and features ClearDefend Technology, which thoroughly gets rid of dirt and fights acne while respecting the fragile skin barrier and helping to protect against future breakouts.
B) Glycolic Acid Cleanser

Glycolic Acid is the premier exfoliator in the beauty industry. It is derived from plants like sugar cane, pineapple, and sugar beets and contains botanical properties that renew, replenish, and treat the skin for a variety of conditions. It is great at exfoliating and removing dead skin cells, boosting collagen production, fading dark spots, brightening skin, reducing scarring, reducing wrinkles and fine lines, and so much more.

C) Silhöuette Clay Mask: Aztec Healing Bentonite Clay, Apple Cider Vinegar, Turmeric, Lemon

The Silhöuette Clay Mask is beneficial for so many reasons! The Aztec Healing Bentonite Clay contains healing properties, removes toxins from your pores, and reduces inflammation. It also lightens dark spots and scars. Apple cider vinegar contains alpha hydroxy acids that remove dead skin, which results in a healthy and illuminating facial appearance. The lemon is also beneficial at fading dark spots, brightening skin, and removing blackheads. The turmeric lightens dark spots as well and also is helpful in preventing acne.

  • Instructions: Mix 1 tbsp. of any bentonite clay and 1 tsp. of turmeric first. Then, add 1 tsp. of lemon juice and 1/2 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar to the dry mixture. Apply the mask to your face and leave it on for 5-10 minutes if you have sensitive skin and 15-20 minutes if you do not have sensitive skin. If your skin begins to feel irritated, immediately rinse the mask off in warm water. Then, after the clay mask is off of your face, rinse your face in cold water for an additional 10 seconds.
D) Night Hydration: Rosehip Oil, Glycolic Acid Facial Serum, & Bio Oil

After any level of skincare and exfoliation, you want to ensure that you moisturize and hydrate your skin. Rosehip oil is a source of hydration that improves skin tone, texture, signs of aging, and it also lightens dark spots. We recommend Aria Starr’s Rosehip Oil because of the high-quality grade and the great price. The Glycolic Acid Facial Serum by Provence Beauty moisturizes and gives your skin a glowing complexion. Lastly, the Bio Oil hydrates your skin, reduces the appearance of scars, evens out your skin tone.

  • Instructions: Apply 2 drops of the Rosehip Oil, 2 drops of the Glycolic Acid Facial Serum and 2 drops of the Bio Oil and blend it in the palm of your hand. Then, pat (not rub) the hydration mixture around your hand.
E) Morning Hydration: Vitamin C Serum & Daily Moisturizer

Vitamin C Serum protects the skin from sun damage, gets rid of dark circles under the eye, promotes collagen production, aids skin discoloration, and speeds up healing. When purchasing Vitamin C Serum, ensure that the serum contains at least 20% Hyaluronic Acid because of its extreme hydrating and skin beneficial properties. We recommend TruSkin Naturals Vitamin C Serum because of the effective ingredients and great price. In relation to the daily moisturizer, we recommend any SPF 30 moisturizer.
