How to wash your face
DON'T: USE BUBBLES
Bubbles mean a disruption of your skin's protective barrier and we recommend steering clear of them.
Although your skin feels cleaner when you work up a nice lather, the surface of your skin becomes defenseless against bacteria and free-radicals post foaming.
And that's not all. When oils are stripped away from the skin, your sebaceous glands are triggered and start over-producing oils, which is why you may notice your skin becoming more oily as the day goes on.
This creates a vicious cycle of drying and over-producing that leads to clogged pores and acne.
DO: CLEANSE TWICE
Instead, we recommend dual cleansing. Cleansing first with an oil cleanser appropriate for your skin's responses followed by a water-based cleanser to remove any remaining impurities.
The Makeup/Dirt Cleansing Oil or Activated Charcoal Cleansing Oil bonds to oil-based impurities such as sebum and makeup while Rosewater Cleanser removes water-based impurities such as sweat and politely carries away any residue of dirt and debris that your oil cleanser has bonded to.
AND YES, IT'S FOR EVERYONE
Even if you have oily skin. Dare I say, especially if you have oily skin. Trust us on this one.
Put aside everything you've ever believed about putting oils on your face. With the right formulation, oils are highly beneficial for your skin's health.
If you've always struggled with oily, acne prone skin, and you've never tried to oil cleanse, I encourage you to start now. You'll be amazed at how clean your skin will feel and how it will actually start to balance it's own oil production.
