In San Diego dry skin can be a chronic issue, especially in winter time. Internally, you want to take in ample fluids, eat Blood and Yin-nourishing foods, and eat some sour-tasting foods to astringe fluids. Dry skin that is not weather-induced is a sign of Blood and/or Yin deficiency.
This is a new addition to the 302 line and is already performing miracles. After my mom, Judith’s, stay in the hospital she developed Blood and Yin deficiency as is common after a prolonged exterior invasion (infection). She is still recovering and her skin was rough and dry. After two days of using 302 Recovery Day/Night her skin is incredibly soft and fine lines have disappeared. The results are due to the high concentration of phytolipids of avocado oil which have a remarkable softening effect on the skin.
Who Benefits: Those needing a great deal of hydration. This cream leaves a protective dewy layer on the surface of the skin. It is appropriate for dry skin types or dry, windy weather. It also doubles as an excellent hand cream.

This continues to be our most versatile moisturizer. Deeply hydrating but non-greasy, it can be applied thick over serums at night or in a thin layer under sunscreen/makeup in the morning. Excellent for adult acne or enlarged pores as it won’t clog pores. (A great trick for enlarged pores is to apply 302 Serum followed by Healing and Restoring Cream at night.)
Who Benefits: All skin types. This cream leaves a protective matte layer on the surface of the skin.
How to Use: Use day or night as needed. As with all our moisturizers, Healing and Restoring Cream does not cause dependency and does not contain actives that can cause irritation.
Contains refined jojoba oil, phytolipids of avocado oil, and capric triglycerides (highest quality coconut oil). This oil blend is the base for all 302 active oils (302 drops, 302 Plus Drops, C-Boost, A-Boost, and Lightening Drops). Refining natural oils makes them safe for even the most acne-prone skin to use. Refining removes the large lipid molecules which clog pores and can cause breakouts. Unrefined, these oils are not recommended for acne-prone skin.
Who Benefits: All skin types. This oil leaves a dewy layer on the surface of the skin. It is appropriate for even the most irritated, sensitive skin.
How to Use: A little goes a long way. Use day or night as needed. As with all our moisturizers, Moisturizing Drops does not cause dependency and does not contain actives that can cause irritation.
Japanese women typically perform 2 cleanses at night: an oil wash to remove makeup, sunscreen, and pollutants, followed by a soap wash. This provides a very thorough, yet gentle cleanse. In the U.S. cleansing with oil has enjoyed a resurgence. The problem is that oil, even good oils like jojoba or coconut, contain large lipid molecules that can clog pores. 302 Normal/Dry Cleanser contains refined avocado oil where the large pore-cloging lipids have been removed. It also contains natural surfactants making this an incredible “oil” wash.
Who Benefits: Excellent makeup remover for all skin types. Perfect for dry skin but provides a deep cleanse for all skin types.
How to Use: Use like all 302 cream cleansers. Apply one pump to dry skin, massage in, and let sit for 60 sec. Wet your hands and apply another pup, massage in, and rinse.
