Use twice a day morning and night. Use the vitamin C serum during the day and the vitamin A serum at night.
How do you use the body butter?
As this aromatic body butter contains 2% essential oils it can only be applied to the body not the face and not to be used if pregnant. For optimum results dry body brush before a shower. After the shower apply the body butter in upwards strokes from the feet upwards. This is great for dry aged skin and the scent will last for many hours. You can also add it to dry hair ends. As this is an anhydrous product (does not contain water) avoid putting wet fingers or water into the butter as it will deteriorate and not last.
