The first step towards healthy skin is proper cleansing. Cleansing the skin with organic facial cleansers removes oily residue, makeup, dead skin cells, and waste by-products. The face should be cleansed at least twice daily. Morning cleansing removes the overnight build-up of impurities and airborne particulates. Cleansing skin at night removes makeup, oils, bacteria, pollens and pollutants.
A face cleanser is only a superficial skin cleaner, designed to loosen and lift light makeup, pore debris, waste by-products, air borne pollutants, dead skin cells, excess sebum, excretions, and secretions. A well balanced and gentle cleanser cleans without compromising the natural pH or acid mantle of the skin, or stripping the protective lipid barrier. The cleanser is usually rinsed away with warm water. However, a slight trace of cleanser residue and loosened pore debris will always remain on the skin which must be removed for deep cleansed pores. The best removal method is toner damp cotton pads. Then, and only then, do you have truly clean skin!
The most important cleansing is the one performed in the evening. City dwellers are more susceptible to air pollution which contains sulfuric chemicals. These air borne particles react with the skin and are partially converted to sulfuric acid which is dehydrating and harmful. This is also when makeup and mascara need to be removed with the lotion cleanser. The morning cleansing may be omitted if skin is dry or sensitive. Simply freshen skin with toner on cotton.
Dampen face with warm water, dispense two pumps and gently massage face paying special attention to problem areas, wings of nose and hairline. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry. Follow with toner on cotton pads to complete the deep pore cleansing process.
