Routines & Cleansers



The purpose of a skin routine is to have more motivation to wash your face and to help your complexion by applying products in an order that will help the best.

Cleansing: Washing your face

Toning:  Balancing the skin

Moisturizing: Hydrating and softening the skin

Think of your routine in three steps:



Cleansers are the first and most important step when it comes to washing your face.

Makeup removers like cleansing wipes and micellar water.

Water-based Cleansers

Oil Cleansers like cleansing oils, creams and balms



Properly Cleanse

Before you do anything, wash your hands. Washing your face with dirty hands is not good and unhygienic.

Wet your face with warm water.  

Use a dime-sized amount of cleanser and apply it to your face in a circular motion.

Keep doing this for about a minute.

Step by Step:

Rinse your face and pat it dry with a towel.

Double Cleansing

Double cleansing is when you cleanse your face with a cleansing oil and then cleanse your face again with water-based cleanser.

Ph in Cleansers

Finding a pH balanced cleanser ensures that the acid mantle won’t be damaged. The acid mantle is a fine protective layer on top of your skin that acts as a barrier. The acid mantle protects from breakouts, prevents water loss and preserves the health of your skin. If it’s damaged, it can lead to dehydration, oily skin, acne and sensitiveness.
