Rushworth of Decleor and Carita explains this trend.

Flawless skin is always in vogue and with a crowded skincare marketplace, it’s important to educate both spa owners and consumer alike on the basics of treating and protecting the skin. From multi-purpose products to those that target specific skin concerns, skincare is a daily regime that works to suit individual needs.

As the Cosmetic Aromatherapy expert, DECLÉOR was founded on the premise of the Aroma Duo concept, a two-step program that both treats and protects the skin to address a variety of skin concerns, from dehydration, hyperpigmentation to aging skin. Skin serves as a barrier to defend against external aggressors and environmental factors. If our skin is doing its job, but with the Aroma Duo concept, DECLÉOR has discovered that using its proprietary Aromessence™ a blend of 100% pure and natural Essential Oils and Plant Oils- along with a corresponding day cream in its two-step beauty boosting concept provides deeper penetration of the day cream along with enhanced radiance and natural beauty.The result is a clinically proven long-lasting and highly effective skincare regimen that targets the skin concerns at the core level.

The benefits of aromatherapy and essential oil products are well known – they target skins most common concerns including: dehydration, wrinkles, dark spots, sensitive areas, and aging.These pure and effective essential oils are nature’s most powerful ingredients. For example, the essential oils of rose and chamomile are calming and soothing to provide relief for sensitive skin.For dry skin, the ultra-nourishing oils of hazelnut, avocado and rosemary essential oil invigorate the skin and restore moisture beneath the surface for long-lasting hydration. As women’s skin ages, fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging appear so the essential oils of Iris, Immortelle, and Frankincense stimulate the regeneration of skin cells as well as the promote the reduction of the appearance of wrinkles, while lifting and toning the skin.

DECLÉOR uses a highly selective blend of 3-9 essential oils in each Aromessence™ serum to achieve maximum results, target specific problems and more effectively activate the benefits of the day creams while promoting deeper penetration of these benefits.The molecular structure of each essential oil allows it to diffuse deep into the skin and deliver the active extracts from the perfectly paired creams to the heart of the problem.

The expertise of the Aromessence™ Serums is backed by the clinically proven results to deliver a highly effective skincare program.This marriage between science and nature can be found in the Aromessence™ Excellence collection, which targets wrinkles, loss of firmness, dryness and hyper-pigmentationin a comprehensive anti-aging two-step ritual.The combination of Aromessence™ Excellence Ultra Regenerating Serum with Excellence de L’Age Sublime Regenerating Cream penetrates deep into the skin to not only reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but also treat and protect the skin and addresses visible signs of aging.

DECLÉOR knows that when it comes to your skin, the best things often come in pairs.The Aroma Duo collection creates and unmatched skin care routine that’ll last all day long.
