How to use Lyonsleaf beauty balm
Apart from the fact that it’s completely natural, made only with active ingredients and contains neither water nor chemicals, we love the fact that beauty balm can be used in so many ways.
Lyonsleaf beauty balm is suitable for all skin types, whether you have dry skin, oily skin, normal or combination skin, problem skin or sensitive skin you can use and benefit from this beautiful balm. It is not, however, suitable if you have nut allergies or are allergic to plants from the daisy family or have specific allergies to any of the other ingredients.
First of all Lyonsleaf beauty balm can be used as a cleanser using the oil cleansing method. Oil cleansing or hot cloth cleansing is a gentle, nourishing, balancing and hydrating method of cleansing that lifts away dirt, grime and dead skin cells to reveal healthy and radiant skin.
Instead of using harsh soaps and chemicals that strip the skin, oil cleansing uses the principle that like dissolves like. Massaging a little of the balm into dry skin will remove even waterproof eye makeup, dissolve dirty sebum (including blackheads over time), while application of a hot cloth opens the pores and removes dead skin.
As well as effectively cleansing the skin Lyonsleaf beauty balm also improves the skin barrier. Instead of stripping natural oils which can cause overcompensation and breakouts, cleansing with natural oils nourishes the skin, locking in moisture and giving you soft plump skin all day.
No stripping the skin of its natural oils and improving the skins natural barrier has the effect of balancing both dry and oily skin. And because a good skin barrier also keeps out pathogens you can use beauty balm to protect against breakouts and infection and to soothe conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Beauty balm can also be used as a deeply hydrating moisturiser and intensive moisture mask. Many people find they no longer need to use a moisturiser when they start oil cleansing but for others applying a small amount of the balm to cleansed skin is rich and nourishing, you can even do this before drying your face for easier application and absorption.
Once you have a pot of beauty balm you’ll also discover it makes a great intensive moisturiser for dry skin patches all over the body, a wonderful hand and nail cream, a Hydrating lip balm you can even add a spoon of sugar for a great body scrub.
