Addicted to “full” creams?

Start your detoxification now and cure your skin in less than 6 weeks!

Do you still believe that greasier creams contain more ingredients and are therefore richer? That these creams will take better care of your skin and will better hydrate it? Do you enjoy the comfortable feeling of a more oily film, seemingly better protecting your skin?

Well, time has come to decrypt some myths. At last you will understand why, after all those years of spreading creams, you have not advanced at all. Your skin still feels “dry and pulling” without a cream and your wrinkles only increase.

The skin, as a cover for our body, prevents it from dehydration. Within our body there is a surplus of water. Outside the dry air is waiting for us. The constant but unnoticeable evaporation from liquid through our skin makes us lose about 1 litre of water per day for which we compensate by drinking water. The healthy skin ensures a gradual transition preventing so that we don’ change from a plum grape to a dried out raisin. A good thickness of the skin, a healthy cell division of the upper skin layers and our sebum production ensure a supple, waterproof cover.

During the ageing process the skin gets thinner, the cells divide slower while forming dead and dry skin flakes on the surface and the sebum production slows down. All these elements give us an uncomfortable and tout feeling.

We tend to be lazy and therefore do nothing to improve the situation but instead we apply a greasy film to our skin, which slows down the invisible and gradual evaporation of liquid and holds it just under the greasy layer. It is as if we cover our skin under fresh foil! It does feel comfortable but it’s not a solution. In time the skin will only get thinner and thinner because the dry skin flakes accumulate and our own sebum production slows down, causing blogged pores and possible spots. Millions of women suffer daily from this “instant” solution which only further weakens their skin.

The worst about it all is that we get addicted to these oily creams. When we stop for a while… we start missing them. Like the withdrawal symptoms after giving up pills, alcohol or drugs. We grab back our old creams and so we age more and more.

What is the solution to this? Just like with any other addiction we must, in order to break through the routine, start by analising the condition of our skin. A proper diagnosis on medical level. After that we will start using techniques which stimulate the skin’s thickening (roller), removing the layer of dead and dry skin cells (scrubbing) and finally we will treat the blood vessels, which also are responsible for the evaporation, with soothing ingredients. The whole is finished off with serums that restore the barrier for the most sensitive skins. Fortunately this whole process goes automatically with the YourSkinType™ measure and advice system and the additional customized IKARI Cosmetics.

Of course this whole process will not be without withdrawal symptoms. All of a sudden the “protection” is removed and work has to be done to guarantee a happy future. You may opt for a more gradual change, thus improving your comfort but also extending the duration. But any way…. the reward is enormous! Luckily your IKARI consultant is there for you and will help you with advice and support through these dark days.

Why do oily creams not work against ageing? Active ingredients dissolve better in greasy creams. Therefore it is a simple formula. But once applied to the skin the active ingredients remain in the cream and do not penetrate into the cells that are less oily. That’s why active serums are lighter in texture, so that they can encourage the transition of the ingredients to the oilier cells.

Curing the skin means most of all activating the skin and not protecting it under an oily cover.

Start now and enjoy the skin you deserve for the rest of your life.

Tip! Apply your cream in several layers which each time 10 minutes in between.


A greasy layer of cream is no blessing for your pores and even less for your make-up. Besides your skin cannot absorb such an amount of grease and the grease will remain as a film on your skin.

Start your day with the purification of your skin and apply a thin layer of the customized cream. Than have your breakfast or perform your other morning tasks. After 10 minutes you will no longer feel the cream on your face and you may then apply a second layer.
