Benefiting from Mir skin care
Mir is designed to balance and soothe sensitive or blemish-prone skin without clogging pores and is the only range free from irritants, fragrance, essential oils, sulphates, fatty alcohols and comedogenic substances. Our products are also used by people with calm, clear skin who would like to keep it that way.
You could spend all day reading the skin care tips on this web site but there's a much easier, quicker way to benefit from Mir, stop reading about it and start using it!
Generous samples of all products including Mir Argan Beauty Oil can be found in Trial Pack B - and we ship worldwide!
We've designed Mir to be beneficial, simple and effective and to suit your skin and the way you like to care for it. If you think this sounds complicated, you're wrong, nothing could be simpler and the results will amaze you.
To feel the full benefits, you should use all five products - six if you use both moisturisers. You won't need anything else. If you use other skin care products at the same time, the ingredients in them may interfere with Mir. (This does not mean that you should stop using medication.)
It may take a few weeks to notice a difference, so do persevere.
Four week sample plan
See individual product pages for detailed usage instructions and tips:
Cleansing Gel: Use twice daily from the outset or once a day if hypersensitive, for example in the evenings if you wear makeup, you can simply rinse with warm water in the morning. You can occasionally wipe Cleansing Gel off with a damp muslin cloth but this may cause friction which can sensitise the skin, wiping also drags the skin so can accelerate ageing.
Moisturising Lotion: Use as required from the outset. N.B. a little "tingling" is natural and will disappear within a few days. (We use effective levels of natural active ingredients which ultimately help to soothe, balance and heal and which produce a cooling sensation, sometimes misconstrued as sensitisation. The tingling indicates that your skin is not in perfect balance and may recur from time to time if you use other products, over exfoliate, use a heavy hand with Skin Refresher or have health issues.)
Skin Silk Lotion: Use as required from outset.
Skin Refresher: Use instead of Cleansing Gel (occasionally) from the outset or in addition to it in weeks three and four. Use a very light hand, even the softest cotton wool can sensitise if you scrub your skin with it.
Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser: Use once a week from week two, as often as required but no more than once daily for weeks three and four. Hypersensitive skins should remember to follow usage instructions to the letter, the aim is to move the product around the skin applying no pressure whatsoever.
Mir Argan Beauty Oil: Use in conjunction with other Mir products as required.
ALWAYS REMEMBER: If your skin is highly sensitive... LESS IS MORE!
Mir “rinse massage”
If you don't rinse properly you won't feel the full benefits of our brilliant cleansers, after washing continue to massage your skin extremely gently throughout the rinsing stage. The aim of the rinse-massage is not to stimulate the skin; it's simply to remove the product from your face. Mir cleansers will remove all your make up and city grime and leave your skin refreshed, cool and soothed. Unlike other cleansers, they won't strip away the acid mantle, which protects your skin from bacteria/ pimples and helps to keep it moist.
Mir "finger exfoliation" method
After rinsing off Mir Cleansing Gel or Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser - and while your skin is still wet - gently move your fingers around your face in small circular movements paying particular attention to any "rough" areas. You'll feel the loose skin flakes roll away under your fingertips. Don't overdo this. The aim is simply to remove flakes that are already loose and ready to come away. Rinse well and pat dry. Apply Moisturising Lotion by patting and pressing in, not rubbing.
Mir body "rolling exfoliation" method
Wash with a mixture of Mir Liquid Silk Gentle Body Wash and Mir Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser, rinse well and repeat, pat off excess moisture so that your skin is almost, but not completely, dry. Using the palm and heel of your hand rub your skin firmly but gently, i.e. in such a way that you do not cause undue friction or redness, until the loose skin flakes start to roll off. You will be amazed at the results.
Mir "one-handed rinsing"
Do you get wet elbows and splash water everywhere when washing your face? Don't rinse with two hands, just use one: bend down so that your face is close to the basin; if you have long hair, use one hand to hold your hair back and rinse with the other.
Mir "cool palm therapy"
The palms of your hands are wonderful tools for soothing your skin and applying products. Here are a couple of tips: when your face feels hot, irritated or appears flushed run your hands under the cold tap to cool them, place cool wet palms over face, repeat as necessary; if your skin needs a moisture boost apply a drop or two of Mir Argan Beauty Oil to the dry palm of one hand, wet the other hand, shake off excess water and press palms together and rub to mix water and oil, place palms over face pressing gently and rolling, cup them to avoid eye area.
