Skin slugging refers to a skincare technique where an occlusive product is applied as the final step in a skincare routine to create a barrier on the skin's surface. The purpose of skin slugging is to seal in moisture and prevent water loss, particularly beneficial for individuals with dry or dehydrated skin.

As with any skincare practice, it's important to pay attention to how your skin responds and adjust your routine accordingly. If you have specific skin concerns or conditions, consulting with a dermatologist can provide personalized advice tailored to your skin's needs.

It's advisable to patch-test new products and introduce them gradually into a skincare routine.

Using Sweet Caroline No.4 All-Over Salve for Slugging is a great way to lock in moisture and promote hydrated, healthy skin. This petrochemical-free Salve contains natural ingredients like Calendula Flower extract, Vitamin E, Olive Oil, and Rosehip Oil, making it a safe and effective choice for those with concerns about synthetic ingredients in their skincare routine. 

How to use the Sweet Caroline No.4 All-Over Salve for Slugging:


Start by cleansing your face thoroughly to remove any makeup or dirt. This step ensures that you're applying the Salve to clean, fresh skin.

Apply Skincare Products:

After cleansing, apply your regular skincare products, such as toner and serum. It's important to note that experts advise against pairing slugging with potent agents like retinol, as trapping these actives can lead to unpredictable results on your skin.

Prepare the Salve:

Take a small amount of Sweet Caroline No.4 All-Over Salve with Calendula Flower, Vitamin E, Olive Oil, and Rosehip. Warm it up in your hands until it becomes soft and spreadable. This step makes it easier to apply the salve evenly.

Apply Thin Layer:

Apply a thin layer of the Salve to your face, focusing on areas that tend to be dry. This initial layer provides a base of moisture for your skin.

Allow Absorption:

Allow the Salve to absorb into your skin for a few minutes. This step ensures that the product has time to penetrate your skin.

Apply Generous Layer:

Apply another thin layer of the Salve to your face, this time applying it more generously. This layer will create a barrier to lock in moisture.

Overnight Treatment:

Leave the Salve on your skin overnight. This extended contact time allows your skin to absorb the maximum benefits from the salve.

Morning Routine:

In the morning, rinse your face with water to remove the salve and follow your regular morning skincare routine. Your skin will feel deeply hydrated and nourished.
