Clinique’s World-Renowned 3-Step Skin Care System


Clinique makes great skin easy as one, two, three with the 3-Step Skin Care System – a quick, affordable, effective program for all skin types.

Clinically-formulated between a marriage of Clinique’s visionary dermatologist Dr. Norman Orentreich, and a savvy Vogue Editor, 3-Step Skin Care System is the foundation of Clinique skin care. They believed that Great Skin Can Be Created with an appropriate skin care regimen that includes a basic daily cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing system. Daily care over time is one of your best de-aging defenses.

“Good skin care pays off. Daily, in cleaner, fresher skin. And over time, skin is going to look healthier, longer."

– Dr. David Orentreich, Clinique’s Guiding Dermatologist



The steps of the system to be followed twice-a-day, morning and evening:

1.  Cleanse: Cleansing the face with Clinique liquid or bar soap makes for fresh, clean skin, never taut, dry or uncomfortable. Clinique Facial Soap comes in Extra-Mild, Mild, and Extra-Strength formulas.  Wash face with cleanser and use warm water to rinse after cleaning.

2.  Exfoliate: Clarifying Lotion, known as the “Difference Maker,” allows new skin cells to be uncovered and dead cells removed for skin to achieve maximum brilliance and clarity. Clarifying Lotion – in five formulas appropriate for various skin types – acts as a daily exfoliant. Dampen a cotton ball with Clarifying Lotion and sweep over face and neck.

3.  Replenish: All skin needs moisture, but some more than others. Benefits of Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion or Gel can be tailored to meet the needs of every skin type by applying moisture only where and when needed. It’s the perfect match to skin’s own natural moisturizing factor.

 From the very beginning, the 3-Step Skin Care System was designed to be used together, each step helping the others to provide optimum results.  Cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize.  The key is to use all three steps together and great skin is guaranteed. Three steps, three minutes twice-a-day will get your skin back in balance.

After one week of twice-a-day 3-Step Skin Care System daily use, dry patches and flakiness are gone for dry combination skins while oily skins see less midday shine and helps pores seem smaller. After two weeks, dry patches have disappeared, fine, dry lines softened, and oily areas are more balanced. By balancing your skin, additional beauty accessories work even better – treatment products are more effective, and makeup goes on easier and stays fresher, longer.

And in clinical testing, after eight weeks, across multiple ethnicities, all women saw moisturization improve by at least 26%, smoothness improve by at least 34%, and radiance improve by at least 25%.


The 3-Step skin care System Works for all Skin Types

Clinique separates skin into four categories: Type I: Very Dry to Dry; Type II: Dry Combination; Type III: Oily Combination; Type IV: Oily to Very Oily. Various strength-levels of the Facial Soap and Clarifying Lotion and textures of Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion/Gel can customize the 3-Step Skin Care System.  Skin type is determined with the guidance of a Consultant and the Clinique Computer.


Great Skin at any Age

Clinique believes beauty is not only about looking young, but looking good. The 3-Step Skin Care System, like an exercise program for your skin, adjusts to meet changing needs due to climate, age, season or hormones. Accelerated exfoliation or increased moisturization may be required to address specific concerns. Changing conditions are monitored and addressed with regular skin checkups – a quick consultation at the Clinique counter where Consultants are specially trained to work with skin of every age.
