DEVON'S FAVORITE TIPS
1) Remove Your Makeup -- You must start with a blank canvas if you want your skin to enjoy the full effects of your skincare.
2) Cleanse -- This step ensures that your pores are cleaned, prepped and ready to allow deep product penetration.
3) Active Products -- For all products you use post-cleanse, apply them in order from the thinnest to the thickest.
Any ejected pus, sebum, or grime can easily seep into other pores, leading to further breakouts.
And, unless you're trained as an aesthetician, the damage incurred from the popping will likely remain on your skin much longer than if you had simply left your pimple alone.
The secret weapon to perfect skin = exfoliation in moderation.
Exfoliating 2-3 times a week with a physical scrub that has lactic acid is a perfect way to achieve beautiful skin.
Repeatedly squishing your head into your pillow night after night promotes collagen breakdown.
As much as possible, we recommend positioning your head so the lower half of your face never touches your pillow. Or even better, sleep on your back!
Derms agree that the skin repairs itself overnight, so products with active ingredients and thick moisturizers are best used in the evening.
Before bed (or when you get home from work), do a double cleanse, exfoliation (2-3 times a week), add a toner or mask, and finish with a night cream.

THE FOUNDATION FOR TRUE BEAUTY
Everyday your face faces off against environmental toxins like pollutants, bacteria, dirt, and dead skin cells. Daily washing removes impurities revealing a fresh, healthy look.
The best offense is a good defense. To prevent the signs of aging, take steps to nourish your face with corrective agents that can heal, hydrate, and replenish the skin.
This is the most crucial component of your skincare regimen. Daily sunscreen use all year long helps guard against everything from fine lines and wrinkles to skin cancer.
