Can you tell us more about the new TimeWise® Even Complexion Mask?

The TimeWise® Even Complexion Mask is a great addition to the TimeWise® family of products because it delivers instant brightening benefits so that skin immediately looks more radiant. The mask is infused with botanical extracts to help deliver visible brightening. This product is great for everyone but is a perfect complement for those who are already using TimeWise® Even Complexion Essence, which is formulated to improve skin clarity and minimizes the appearance of skin’s imperfections, like age spots. This mask is the perfect product to help prepare your skin for applying the Even Complexion Essence serum. When you use the mask together with TimeWise® Even Complexion Essence, you’re truly getting the Even Complexion “Power Pair.” Using both products as part of a skin care regimen will leave your skin looking more radiant and even toned.

Should I sell my customers the TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Set or the TimeWise® Even Complexion Mask?

You can’t really compare the TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Set and the TimeWise® Even Complexion Mask because they are completely different in the benefits they provide and the concerns they address. The Microdermabrasion Set provides exfoliation, whereas the Even Complexion Mask delivers instant brightening benefits. The mask is a gentle formula that leaves skin feeling soft and moisturized, while delivering instant brightening benefits so that skin immediately looks more radiant. Also, the Microdermabrasion Set should not be used on those with skin conditions, like acne or sensitive skin, but the mask can be.

How do I know whether to sell TimeWise® Night Solution, TimeWise® Replenishing Serum + C, or the TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Set to my customers?

While it’s possible that the current economy is one reason this question is asked so frequently, here are a few important distinctions to know about these products:

  • TimeWise® Day Solution Sunscreen SPF 25* and Night Solution are not supplements – they are part of the Miracle Set™. If a customer can only afford one product, we recommend the Night Solution. Customers will likely experience the results and then, depending on their needs, may try the other products in the Miracle Set™.
  • The next product we would recommend is the TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Set. The higher level of exfoliation it provides is critical in keeping skin from looking dull.
  • Next, we suggest Replenishing Serum +C. This fantastic supplement is truly focused on firming the skin.

Do I really need TimeWise® Day Solution Sunscreen SPF 25* and TimeWise® Night Solution? Can they be substituted for other supplements?

The TimeWise® Miracle Set™ is designed as a set and the products need to be used together to gain the maximum benefit for your skin. The set is really the foundation of our brand. TimeWise® Day Solution Sunscreen SPF 25* is critical for sun protection, the TimeWise® Night Solution for repair. It’s fine for your customers to add supplements on top of that, but we don’t recommend leaving the house without using the complete TimeWise® Miracle Set™.

As an example, the TimeWise® 3-in-1 Cleanser offers exfoliating and toning every day. This isn’t the same as the exfoliating you can get from the TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Set. Different levels of exfoliation may be needed depending on your skin’s needs.

The supplements are exactly what we call them – supplements. Not everyone is the same age and has the exact same needs. The Miracle Set™ provides the foundation for healthy skin; the supplements provide the customization for your customers’ specific needs.

What is the secret to beautiful skin in our 60s and older?

The secret to better skin at this age is moisturization. Cell turnover continues to slow down as we age, so exfoliation also continues to be important. Continued use of the Miracle Set™ will address these needs but supplements like the TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Set and extra hydration products will provide additional benefits.

What is the secret to beautiful skin in our 50s?

In our 50s our skin’s support structure decreases causing an increased rate of sagging. We need to use products with ingredients that stimulate collagen, combat free radicals, and boost hydration. The Miracle Set™ offers these solutions but you may also want to consider adding supplements such as TimeWise® Replenishing Serum+C to get extra lifting and firming from collagen-enhancing ingredients.

What is the primary benefit of the Miracle Set™ for someone in her 40s?

In our 40s the signs of aging continue with more noticeable wrinkles, sagging, dark spots and discoloration. The Miracle Set™ can help with hydration and enhance collagen. For dark spots and skin discoloration, you may want to consider adding supplements like TimeWise® Even Complexion Essence and TimeWise® Even Complexion Mask. TimeWise® Even Complexion Essence is clinically shown to restore skin’s natural, even tone in as little as four weeks. And of course the TimeWise® Even Complexion Mask provides immediate brightening benefits. Together, the two products make the Even Complexion “Power Pair!”

What is the primary benefit of the Miracle Set™ for someone in her 30s?

In our 30s we begin to outwardly notice the signs of aging. Skin may require more hydration and may have reduced collagen (which can make the skin seem less firm and less elastic). The antioxidant-enriched formula in TimeWise® Age Fighting Moisturizer provides essential hydration that skin needs and the TimeWise® Night Solution contains two peptides which act together to restore and renew the appearance of skin by helping stimulate collagen. The Miracle Set™ is perfect for women in their 30s.

What is the primary benefit of the TimeWise® Miracle Set™ for someone in her 20s, especially when it’s possible for her skin to look so good at that age?

Of the 11 age fighting benefits in the Miracle Set™, the number one benefit is the sun protection we get from TimeWise® Day Solution SPF 25*. In our mid 20’s, although skin degradation is not clearly visible, we are already on the decline. This natural aging is then combined with a period in our lives where many of us engage in the risky behavior of tanning. To protect our skin, it is important to start using a daily sunscreen protection as well as a skin health regimen, such as the Miracle Set™, to keep skin looking young for the long term. In our 20s and throughout our lives, sun protection is the key to healthy, youthful-looking skin.
