Anti-Aging Morning + Evening Facial Protocols
Our Facial Protocols are a step-by-step guide with information regarding the why and how to achieve best results from the Angels and Sages product collections.
Links to all of our products are included in these protocols so you can easily build your best routine no matter if you're a seasoned pro or using our products in the comfort of your home.
Products in our anti-aging line are created to work on all skin types, and sensitive skin. Due to the nature of the aging face, we do lean towards drier, and thinner skin that is a bit more sensitive due to the hormonal changes that come with age.

Defy | Anti-Aging Morning Facial Routine
Step 1 | Cleanse
Our founder likes to joke that she has the skincare routine of a 12-year-old, even though she is 50. The thing she hates most? Washing her face with soap. We don't judge anymore. She looks great for 50. Best practice is twice daily facial cleansing using a soap-based or an oil-based cleanser.
Directions: Apply and massage into skin with a little water to boost foaming action, rinse with clean cloth and warm water.
Step 2 | Tone
Toners and facial mists are important to help balance the ph of your face after washing. They also usually smell pretty good too -- so you get a pop of aromatherapy while balancing out the chemistry of your face.
Close your eyes and apply a spritz or two of Replenishing Facial Mist.
Use: Replenishing Mist
Directions: Close your eyes and hold the bottle of replenishing mist about 6-8 inches from your face. Push the pump and enjoy. You only need 1-2 sprays of product in your face. The goal is not to be wet. Allow to dry and move to Step 3.
Step 3 | Serums
Serums are designed to be concentrated solutions of products that DO something. Typically, a little goes a long way. We recomend everyone be on a great vitamin c serum to help fight free radicals and brighten skin.
Use: Daily C.
Directions: Pump a drop or two into your hand and apply to face, using gentle, upward motions. Allow the serum to dry and immediatley follow with a moisturizer.
Directions: Pump a drop onto your fingertips. Apply just under your eyes with your index or ring finger. Do not press. Your skin in this area is delicate, and needs a gentle touch.
Step 4 | Moisturize
Moisture and hydration are two different things in terms of skincare. An aging face needs both. Some folsk love rich facial creams, and others prefer light oils that penetrate quickly. No matter your preference, both of these choices are wonderful.
Directions: Apply your chosen moisturizer using your fingers in a patting and upward motion.
Step 5 | SPF
We don't care where you buy it -- but you really need a good SPF every day to help keep those pesky signs of aging away.
Step 6 | Lip Balm
Your lips need hydration too.
Use: Nourish Now Lip Balm
Directions: Take a small amount from the jar and apply to your lips
