How do the Dayenne skincare products work to combat oily and acne-prone skin?
Dayenne contains young brewer's yeast cells and pure natural plant extracts of Echinaceae, Rudbeckia and St. John's Wort. The young brewer's yeast cells regulate the level of sebum produced by the skin, oxygenate and deep cleanse the skin pores and maintain a healthy skin pH mark of 5.0. The natural plant extracts ensure the overall health of the skin. Regular use of the Dayenne skincare products will ensure that the skin is maintained in a healthy state. In such a state, blemishes will be healed and further blemishes will be prevented.

Most acne medications are designed primarily to get rid of existing acne. Such treatments normally contain harsh and often harmful ingredients. The Dayenne skincare range is a natural, safe, gentle and effective way of caring for oily and acne-prone skin. It does not contain sodium lauryl sulfate or benzoyl peroxide. It has no unpleasant or dangerous side effects. It can be used on the whole face or acne-prone area and begins to work right away to get rid of existing acne and help prevent future breakouts. Since it is formulated with soothing plant extracts such as Allantoin, Chamomile, Echinaceae and St. John's Wort, it leaves the skin feeling healthy and hydrated instead of dry and taut.

I am allergic to yeast. Can I use the Dayenne skincare products?
The Dayenne skincare products contain young brewer's yeast cells that have been manufactured in a partly patented process that stabilizes the active properties of the yeast cells. Dermatological tests are regularly carried out and no negative side effects of the Dayenne products are known to date. However, as in the case with any other allergies, common sense needs to be used and if any reaction is seen, usage of the product must be discontinued.

How long will it take for the Dayenne skin care products to work on acne and blemishes?
Dayenne has been formulated to work with the natural processes of the skin. There will be noticeable reduction of sebum after the first application. Significant results will be seen within 3 to 6 weeks.
Top
Will Dayenne leave my skin feeling dry and taut?
No – the Dayenne skincare range was carefully formulated with young brewer's yeast cells and natural plant extracts to thoroughly cleanse the skin without stripping or drying the protective oil layer of the skin. The Dayenne skincare range will leave your skin feeling healthy and hydrated instead of dry and taut.
Top
Are the Dayenne products pH balanced?
pH is the acid mantle across the skin's surface. The pH factor of healthy skin works as a defense by affecting the skin's ability to ward off infection and disorders and saving the body from having to fight beneath the surface as well. The entire Dayenne skin care range contains young brewer's yeast cells. These young brewer's yeast cells provide the skin with a healthy pH mark of 5.0.

Do I have to use all the Dayenne skin care products?
Each product has a very specific function for the care of skin. The cleanser deep cleanses the skin, removes dead skin cells and other impurities whilst penetrating pores to attack bacteria, the soap is excellent for cleansing areas of the face, neck and shoulders that may be prone to breaking out in acne, the toner stabilizes the pH balance of the skin and helps maintain the moisture levels of the skin, the mask deep cleanses the skin and regenerates skin cells, the day cream is an excellent moisturizer and also regulates the level of sebum produced by the skin, the night cream moisturizes and nourishes the skin while you sleep and strengthens irritated skin tissue and the cover stick covers up troublesome spots and blemishes while at the same time working to “heal” the skin. All the Dayenne skin care products contain young brewer's yeast cells and work in harmony with each other to maintain healthy radiant skin. It is recommended that the entire range is used.

How do I use the Dayenne skin care products?
Follow the early morning skin care regime and the late evening skin care regime for best results.
Top
How do I apply the Dayenne toner and the Dayenne moisturizer?
When applying the Dayenne toner and the Dayenne moisturizer it is best to apply in an upward sweeping motion. Skin cells are like shingles on a house, they form one on top of the other in a downward direction to self protect. So it is very important to apply products in an upward motion to maximize absorption.
Top
Why is using the Dayenne toner important and can I skip this step?
Using the Dayenne toner is a crucial step in your skin care routine. Toning with the Dayenne toner is the equivalent of giving water to your skin. Regular water cannot be absorbed and will dry out the skin even more. If the skin does not have a sufficient amount of moisture, premature wrinkles, excessive oil and breakouts will occur. Using the Dayenne toner helps the skin absorb and retain nutrients in a more effective manner. The moisturizer should only be applied after toning to maximize benefits.
Top
How long do I have to wait before I use the different products? Can I apply a treatment product or moisturizer when my skin is still damp from the toner?
The Dayenne cleansers, toners and other skin care products are pH balanced to work together, so you don't have to wait between steps.

Top
Should I use the cleanser once or twice a day?
In the morning you want to remove all of the dead skin cells that have shed overnight, and at night you want to remove the makeup, excess oil, and dirt, so you should cleanse twice every day.
Top
How much cleanser do I use?
About one teaspoon should be perfect, but you may need more or less depending on personal preference and how much makeup you routinely wear.
Top
I am scared of using the Dayenne moisturizer because I have oily skin. What should I do?
There are many misconceptions when it comes to diagnosing oily skin. People with naturally oily skin should use the Dayenne tonic lotion and Dayenne d.c. to control the secretion of oil. However, most people who think they have oily skin are in fact dehydrated. When the skin is dry and dehydrated, oil glands work very hard to compensate for the skin's dryness. The dryer the skin becomes, the more oil is produced, thus leading to breakouts and large pores. Oil cannot be mistaken for moisture in the skin. The Dayenne toner and Dayenne moisturizer may be used to calm the oil glands.
Top
Is it really necessary to use a night cream?
Night-time offers us a calm, quiet atmosphere in which to rest, where temperature and humidity remain constant. The skin at night is more receptive to products which help moisturize and revitalize, and cellular renewal is at its peak. However free radicals, one of the main factors in skin ageing, remain active at night and continue to aggress the skin and diminish its natural renewal capacity. A good night cream will help boost the skin‘s natural renewal capability, compensate for any slow-down due to age and offer protection against free radicals.
Top
Is the cleanser pH balanced?
The pH for the cleanser is between 5.0-5.5, the same as the skin's pH range.
Top
I don't wear make-up. Do I still have to cleanse my skin twice daily?
Daily cleansing is always vital – even if you do not wear make-up – as dirt and oil can clog the skin pores causing blackheads and spots.

How do I know that Dayenne is working?
During the first week, users will notice a significant reduction in redness and inflammation. During the second week, existing blemishes continue to heal. During the second and third week, acne may appear to worsen. This is normal as the skin gets rid of oils, bacteria and impurities from the pores. Once this stage is passed, there is a visible reduction in new breakouts and significantly clearer skin will be noticed.
Top
Dayenne was helping my acne, but now my acne seems to be getting worse.
This is a natural response indicating that Dayenne is actually working. As your skin purges out the oils, bacteria and impurities from your pores, your acne may in fact get worse before it gets better. This is normal. Keep using the product, this stage will pass.
Top
Can I get samples?
Samples of Dayenne are not available because the products take a full four to six weeks to show full effectiveness.
Top
Are the Dayenne products tested on animals?
Dayenne skin care products are not tested on animals.

I normally break out just before my period. Can the Dayenne skin care products help?
Using the Dayenne Face Mask and the Dayenne Tonic Lotion for 3 days prior to menstruation will ensure that break outs are kept to a minimum or do not to appear at all. The Dayenne Face Mask is excellent for getting rid of excess oil and impurities which may be caused by increased hormonal levels during this time. The Dayenne Face Mask will also rid the skin of dead cells, debris and other impurities, leaving behind a healthy glowing complexion that looks refreshed and feels smooth.

My skin gets oilier in summer. How can the Dayenne skin care products help?
The sun increases the amount of sebum produced by 10%. As the Dayenne skin care products regulate sebum production, they are extremely successful in combating break outs. Regular usage of the Dayenne skin care products will ensure that the normal level of sebum is maintained, thus preventing break outs.

I have a big event coming up. Can you recommend a pick-me-up for my skin?
The Dayenne Face Mask, when used with the Dayenne Tonic Lotion is an excellent pick-me-up for dull and lifeless skin.
Top
How long will it take before I see results with the Dayenne skin care products?
The Dayenne skin care range has been developed and formulated to work with the natural processes of the skin. When you first use the Dayenne skin care products you will see the difference in the vibrance of your skin. It is unrealistic to expect to get rid of all your blemishes overnight. However by investing a little time morning and night and by following the Dayenne rituals, you should soon see noticeable results.

Top
Will any of the Dayenne skin care products bleach my clothes or towels?
No. The Dayenne skin care products do not contain ingredients found in some skin care products, which can cause clothes and bedding to become bleached.
Top
If I sunbathe, will my skin condition improve?
Sunbathing or using sunbeds is not a suitable way to improve your skin condition. Excess sun exposure can cause sever damage to the skin. A suntan can help mask some of the inflammation on your skin and moderate exposure to UV light may appear to reduce inflammation, so you might feel that your skin improves in the short term. But many people find that their skin worsens after returning from a holiday - this is primarily due to drying out of the skin’s surface as a result of sun exposure so the sebaceous glands go into over-drive to help compensate.
Top
Why is steaming important prior to using the Dayenne Face Mask?
Steaming encourages the pores to relax and liquefies the oils so they flow more freely to the surface, so clearing and preventing blackheads. Steaming is a good way to prepare skin for a deep-cleansing Dayenne Face Mask as it opens the pores and sets the elimination process in motion.
