General Guidelines

1. Cleansing is the first step in any skin care regimen. Cleanse your entire face and neck area by a gentle cleanser (do not use any type of soap to cleanse your skin) before applying a treatment at nights.

2. Moisturize your skin everyday when you wake up in the morning to protect your skin against environmental harshness. Use of sun blocks is also very crucial. Physical sunscreens are much safer as opposed to chemical sunscreens. Hippocrates Sun block only uses physical sunscreens.

3. Exfoliate your skin once every week with a gentle exfoliator using your circular fingertips motions. Hot bathes may be quite useful once every week as they could loosen scales on your skin and make exfoliation more effective (we do not recommend use of hot bathes more than once a week). Also they help to deep cleanse your skin. Use plenty amount of moisturizer after a hot bath. Cold showers everyday are very refreshing and part of Hippocrates antiaging skin care.
