Heat is a moisturizing warming booster in a roll-on form – which creates a wonderful and intense warming effect for most people. However, what you may not know – or think about in your daily routine – is that it may not necessarily work the same way for everyone. Our skin is a large living organ, and therefore there can be variations in how Heat – and all other skincare products, for that matter – interact with the skin.
For most people, the warming effect occurs immediately after rolling it on – and diminishes over a few hours, but it can be reactivated for up to 24 hours. Afterward, the skin is left soft and supple.
To ensure you have the best experience with Heat, here are some tips for you
Shake the product before use.
Always try it on a small area of skin first to ensure you can tolerate the product. It is normal for the skin to become slightly red where the product is rolled, but redness beyond the application area is a sign of sensitivity. If the skin becomes red, it is a clear sign that it is working, and you will typically also feel a pronounced warming effect.
Start with a small amount when rolling it on. If you feel you need more, you can always apply more.
Apply Heat to warm skin, such as after a hot bath. When the skin is warm, it is more receptive to the product. This is especially important if you feel that your skin has difficulty absorbing and working with the product.
If you want more warmth, you can reactivate the warming effect for up to 24 hours by adding additional heat, such as a warm cloth or physical activity. Or use a hairdryer for a minute if you want a significant boost.
If you desire less warmth, you can mitigate the warming effect by applying oil to the area. This is also the best way to neutralize the product in the skin if you don't want any additional warming effect.
Due to the very intense warming sensation that Heat can provide in some individuals, it is not recommended for use on children.
