arO2 1% (specific product as per skin type)
This is the product that can be used by everybody. For very sensitive skin, if necessary, you can start out using it once a day and as the skin starts to adjust, increase it to twice a day.

Start by removing any makeup and cleansing the skin in the evenings with the Cleanser. After removing the Cleanser, you then apply a thin film of the 1% to the face and neck. Allow 2 to 3 minutes for it to penetrate. If there is much of the cream left on the face, you have used too much. The little amount that remains can be gently massaged into the skin.
In the morning, after rinsing your face and neck with warm water, apply a thin film as you did in the evening. After it has penetrated, you can apply makeup.

2 2%
Directions for use are the same as for the 1%. This product contains 2% oxygen and is normally used on thicker skin; oily skin and problem skin. It can be used on most skin, except very sensitive skin.

2 3%
Used for spot treating acne, hyperpigmentation and other skin problems. It is normally only applied to the problem area and not the whole face. Place a small dab on each problem spot and let penetrate for 5 to 10 minutes. It can either be removed or gently massaged into the skin. This will depend on how sensitive the skin is. In the cases of severe acne, it is best just to remove it, as even a gently massage may cause discomfort.

The Cleanser does not contain any water and is a blend of different oils. Since it does not contain water, it does not have any preservatives in it. It is excellent for removing makeup and especially for sensitive skin. You MUST add water to it, when using it. The Cleanser is very hydrophilic and will adsorb a lot of water. It will start out as an oil, then change to a milky lotion. You must remove it with warm water and cotton pads or other soft material.

Put a little of the Cleanser on your fingertips and rub your fingertips together. The warmth of your fingers, will start to liquefy the Cleanser. Gently massage the face and neck using small circular motions, ADDING A FEW DROPS OF WARM WATER, AT A TIME.

After the Cleanser has gotten very "milky," remove it with warm water and cotton pads or other soft material.
The Cleanser is very effective, when used properly and is excellent for dry skin or you can use it on a warm moist cotton ball to remove eye makeup.

If you properly use the Cleanser in the evening, you can just rinse your face in the morning with warm water, and then apply the appropriate product your esthetician recommended.

The Scrub is a mild abrasive and helps to remove dead cells. Use once or twice a week. After cleansing, apply a small of the Scrub to your fingertips and gently massage your face and neck with a small circular motion. Add a few drops of warm water, at a time. This will make the Scrub easier to apply. Avoid stretching the skin. Massage for about 2 minutes. Remove the Scrub with warm water and cotton pads or other soft material.

arO2 Mask
Dried milk is mixed with deionized water, and used as a base for this oxygen emulsion. The Mask also contains beta-carotene, tocopherol acetate and ascorbyl palmitate. The milk gives the Mask a "sticky" feeling. The plastic wrap is used to keep it from drying out. The Mask should stay moist during use.

Use once or twice a week, after cleansing. Apply a thin film of the Mask to your face and neck. If you have very dry skin, you can gently massage in a few drops of the Facial Oil, before applying the Mask. Cover the Mask with any brand of kitchen plastic wrap. You can divide the plastic wrap into two or three sections. This should make it easier to apply. Leave in place for 20 minutes. Remove the plastic wrap and use warm water and a soft sponge, cotton pads or other soft material, to remove the Mask. You can then apply the
arO2 product suitable for the skin type you are treating.
