BFF Application and FAQ

ABBO Application and FAQ

Application:

A few drops (2-3) rubbed between the palms and patted or massaged into face, neck and decollette right after cleansing or toning, while skin is still damp. Since oils tend to migrate in the eye area, avoid the eyelids and undereye areas-use the orbital bones as a boundary.

 

If your skin is very dry, it will soak up a lot of the oil. Exfoliation helps with this, so does drinking lots of water, and of course, using the serum regularly.

 

In winter, when skin is extra dry, try applying the serum oil when skin is still wet--it will mix with the water and be extra-hydrating. This winter I will also offer an extra rich version of the serum.

 

Summer skin needs much less; a drop or two can be combined with your regular sunscreen.

 

To take advantage of the aromatherapy benefits, rub a few drops between your palms, then cup them over your nose, inhale deeply...say "ahhhhhh" and smile (optional) then apply it to your face and neck.

 

How Often? As often as you feel you need it.

Use at night, after your cleansing routine.  The Non-Blonde uses it on top of her retinol product. It gets along with other treatments quite well.

 

For daytime treatment, give your skin a few minutes to absorb the oil before applying make-up. Or, if you are in a hurry, you can mix a drop in with your moisturizer, primer or BB cream.

 

Shine?

As an oil, it will make your skin shiny, for a few minutes, until it absorbs. For those who have oily skin and wear make-up, a light dusting of powder will take away any residual shine. In summer months, when your moisturizing needs are less, a drop can be added to your warm weather mosturizer,sunscreen, primer or foundation, then used

full strength at night. Some people only use this serum at night, and use a sunscreen/moisturizer or mattifier during the day.

 

Storage?

Packaged in light-protective bottles. The bathroom cabinet is usually the opposite of a cool dry place, and not a good place to store lotions, cream, serums or cosmetics! So keep the serum away from heat, and use it within a few months after opening. The serum has many oils with preservative aspects, but any oil will eventually become rancid if exposed to oxygen and high temperatures. If you are going to store it for more than a month without using it, put it in the refrigerator. It will partially solidify, but will liquify again at room temperature.

 

Shelf Life?

One year from date of purchase.

 

CAVEATS?

Use with common sense, and at your own risk. I created this formula for MY sensiitive skin, and no one I know of that has tried it has had a reaction--quite the opposite, it seems to calm skin. But each person is unique.Natural ingredients are potentially just as irritating and problematic to

sensitive skins as synthetic ingredients.

 

Some dryness and flakiness can be due to fungal infections of the skin or various skin diseases. This product does not treat skin disease, please see your dermatologist if you have patchy dryness or other symptoms not helped by moisturizing.

 

Please do not misconstrue any of the above for medical or psychological therapy, diagnosis or treatment. Please see an appropriate professional.

Application:

After bath, or shower--right after your towel off, or even before you towel off:

Direct a couple of squirts into your hand, rub plams togther, then massage well into body skin.

 

If your skin is very dry, it will soak up a lot of the oil. Exfoliation helps with this, so does drinking lots of water, and of course, using the ABBO regularly.

 

In winter, when skin is extra dry, try applying the serum oil when skin is still wet--it will mix with the water and be extra-hydrating.  If your skin is super dry, you might try adding a mineral oil based moisturizer on top of the ABBO. Abbo's oils are absorbed by the skin, mineral oil products sit on top of the skin.

 

Summer skin needs much less; a drop or two can be combined with your regular sunscreen.

 

To take advantage of the aromatherapy benefits, rub a few drops between your palms, then cup them over your nose, inhale deeply...say "ahhhhhh" and smile (optional) then apply.

 

Safe to use after shaving.

 

Oil on my clothes?

Be sure to apply a few minutes before you get dressed, like you would any moisturizer. If the oil is slow in absorbing, towel off excess, then use less next time.

 

Benefits?

Smoother, softer body skin.  Side effects: did you know that giving yourself a quick massage every morning helps to "flush" your lymphatic system and gives you a bit of the other benefits of massage, both psychological and physiological? A great way to start or end the day.
