Are You Really Cleansing Your Face?
Hey Skin Lover! We want to bring to your attention the most important step to Skin Wellness...Cleansing. Cleansing is a woefuly misunderstood and undervalued aspect to healthy skin. Why, you ask? Well here it us. The importance of cleansing is misunderstood and undervalued due to "thorough" not being emphasized in the act.
Let's use the painting analogy as an example. In order to have a fully vibrant painting, the painter must first start with a clean and clear canvas free of any dirt or debris. This enables the canvas to openly receive and absorb various paint and structuring materials to produce a seamlessly smooth and legible masterpiece. The same goes for your skin. For naturally smooth and glowy skin and/or ideal makeup application, you must practice thorough cleansing. Thorough cleansing is in-depth cleansing that doesn't strip your skin of its natural oils, but frees the skin of all dirt and grim.
What are some ways to thoroughly cleanse the skin or what we call "Confirm The Cleanse?"
There are 3 simple ways to thoroughly cleanse your skin. Each strategy can be used every day before or after washing your face with your identified gel, foam, or cream cleanser. Or you can change it up each day, it’s up to you and which strategy your skin responds to. Your skin may love them all.
1.) The Double Cleanse Method:
Our favorite method thus far, the double cleanse method requires just 5 more minutes of your time to confirm that your skin is thoroughly clean. With this method we like to use the BBSkin InDepth Facial Cleansing Oil (Coming Soon) to dissolve away dirty skin oil that has combined with bacteria, makeup, dead skin cells and other debris from the face and replenish it with clean, nourishing oils that help balance the skin’s natural oil. After massaging the oil into the skin, we then wet a BBSkin Facial Cleansing Bar (Coming Soon) and rub it into the skin on top of the oil. This sends your skin into ultra-cleanse mode. Nothing can escape the tag team effort of the cleansing oil and the plant enriched cleansing lather from the cleansing bar. Rinse, pat dry, and your skin is ready for toner, serum, and moisturizer.
2.) Natural Witch Hazel:
This strategy is the easiest to remember and just as effective. After washing your face with your identified cleanser….whether, gel, foam, or cream, take a cotton ball or cotton round and apply natural witch hazel to it and rub onto your skin reaching all parts of your face. What shows up on the cotton ball after is what was left behind and is now gone. Witch Hazel is a natural astringent that helps to free your skin of dirt and debris without impacting the skin’s natural oils.
3.) Moisturizing Toner:
Adding a moisturizing toner to your cleansing routine will make all the difference in the cleanliness of your skin. There are many toners in the market, but a moisturizing toner has a specific responsibility. A moisturizing toner balances your skin’s pH level and prepares it to soak up forthcoming serum and moisturizer. Using a moisturizing toner such as the BBSkin Facial Boost Toner Mist after cleansing with your identified cleanser will indeed help to Confirm the Cleanse.
Try one of the above or all three. You can't go wrong and your skin will thank you for it. 💚
