Just because you can’t get to the spa or to see your esthetician, doesn’t mean you can’t add a little drama to your skincare routine. Here’s your recipe for a super simple at-home mini-facial to give your glow a serious boost.


What you need:

Mandelic Acid 3-In-1 Exfoliating Cleanser

Vivant Corrective Serum of Your Choice

Sulfur Clay Mask or Algae Soft Mask


  1. Cleanse the face with Mandelic Acid 3-In-1 Exfoliating Cleanser without rinsing it off
  2. Let the cleanser sit on the face for 10-15 minutes
  3. Rinse cleanser away
  4. Apply serum to the skin
  5. Layer Sulfur Clay or Algae Soft Mask on top
  6. Leave on until mask is dry and cracking (about 10 minutes).
  7. Rinse off.


Within the next 24-48 hours, you’ll experience the micro-peeling effect of accelerated cell turnover, which will result in visible improvement in tone and texture. The flaking will last for three to four days, and the skin will be left smoother, softer, and brighter.


Recommended serum and mask pairings:

For signs of aging: Rejuv Rx Peptide Concentrate + Algae Soft Mask

Antioxidant: Spin Trap Vitamin C & E Serum + Algae Soft Mask

For brightening: 8% Mandelic Acid 3-In-1 Serum + Algae Soft Mask

For mild acne in sensitive skin: 8% Mandelic Acid 3-In-1 Serum + Sulfur Clay Mask

For resistant acne: BP 10% Gel Medication + Sulfur Clay Mask


Our recommendations are based on the entry-level serums. If your skin is already acclimated to a more advanced level of serum, use that instead.
