A Greener Clean!
Skin needs to be kept clean to be healthy. It is our biggest organ and the most hardworking too. It is constantly being attacked by free radicals, UV rays, pollutants and irritants. In response to these constant attacks, your skin will either produce sebum to protect itself or it will react and show signs of stress that will cause sensitivity and painful areas.
Your skin will appear dull and lifeless if not cared for properly. Cleansing will remove excess sebum, dead skin cells, grime and makeup. Once your skin is clean, it is ready to accept any treatment products that you wish to use. If the skin hasn't been cleaned correctly, any product you apply will be wasted.
Add a Natural Face Wash
Many people use only water on their skin, however, this isn't enough to wash away impurities and the grime that your skin accumulates in a 24 hour period. It is simple to add a natural face cleanser for cleaning your face. A face wash can be used in the shower or while standing at the sink.
This is a no-fuss cleansing method yet the natural ingredients in the face wash, will benefit your skin and you will see and feel results immediately. Natural face cleanser won't strip away your natural oils and are gentle on skin. It's as easy as using lukewarm water to make a foaming cleanser, massage into your face and rinse off.
If you prefer not to use any kind of a cleansing wash, you might be more suited to a Konjac sponge. Konjac is a natural plant fibre and is a natural facial cleanser. Konjac sponges are great for gym bags or for travelling. All you do is soak in warm water and then use in a circular motion on your face. The Konjac sponge will give mild exfoliation, remove dead skin cells and will leave your skin looking and feeling rejuvenated.
Facial Cleansing Oils & Creams
We have seen the rise of the oil cleansing method. It is extremely popular and that is because it works! Eve Lom was instrumental in the rise of oil cleansing and many followed, improving on that original cleansing method. Often an oil cleanser is limited to one or two ingredients meaning it is pure and simple.
If you have an oily skin or an acne prone skin, then an oil-based cleansing method will actually improve your skin. Cleansing oils and natural cleansing balm will regulate sebum production and reduce the amount of oil that your skin produces. Your skin will be nourished instead of being stripped and the ingredients in the balm or oil will feed your skin and reduce sensitivity. How does the oil cleansing method work? You warm the oil or balm in your hand and massage gently into your skin. You only need a small amount. It will dissolve makeup, waterproof mascara, eye make-up and excess sebum. Remove the cleansing balm or oil with a cloth. You can use your flannel or for a more gentle removal, use a damp muslin cloth like the Balm Balm Muslin Cloth. Dry skin will be hydrated with use of a cleansing balm or oil. Cleansing your face can often leave dry skin feeling tight and sensitive, this won't happen with a natural cleansing balm.
Olive oil, coconut oil and castor oil are often blended with essential oils to make natural cleansing oils and balms. The recipe will be tailored to use specific treatment oils for specific concerns. Have a look at our Balm Balm and Lyonsleaf range of cleansing balms.
Lyonsleaf makes their cleansing balms without water. This is important to Lyonsleaf as they want to know that 100% of their active ingredients are getting right to where your skin needs them.
