Deep Facial Cleansing Tips
The face is constantly exposed to the elements and being damaged by environmental pollution and air quality. The face is the only section of the skin which is exposed all year round.
Therefore it is vital to take more care of the face than any of body part.
Care for your face with this deep cleansing, detoxifying and moisturizing regime:
Deep Organic Skin Cleansing Routine
Step 1: Use a cleansing face oil on moist cotton pads to gently remove any touch make up – such as mascara, brow pencil and lipstick.
Step 2: Remove all traces of the cleansing oil with a natural ingredient toner or rosewater soaked cotton pads. Rose adds and helps to retain moisture and is suitable for normal, dry, mature and sensitive skin.
Step 3: Cleanse the face thoroughly using a bi-‐phase (water and oil) cleansing lotion or a cream cleanser. Work the cleanser deeply into all the nooks and crevices of the face. Take your time.
Step 4: Remove the cleanser with a muslin cloth moistened with hot water. Massage the cloth into all the nooks and crevices of the skin. Keep dunking the cloth into hot water, the heat from the cloth will help the cleansing process.
Step 5: Repeat the cleansing process with a facial polish or scrub (you can use maize or oat meal mixed with a little oil so that is slides over the skin). This step isn’t mandatory but is good to use 2-‐3 times a week or if skin is looking dull. Remove polish with the hot muslin cloth.
Step 6: Swipe over the face with cotton pads soaked in rosewater (or other hydrosol of choice) to remove all traces of cleansing products.
Step 7: Apply a deep-cleaning facial mask and relax for 5-10 minutes. Apply hydrosol-soaked cotton pads to the eye area or your own brand of eye gel/serum.
Step 8: Remove the mask with cellulose sponges and warm water.
Step 9: Ensure all traces of mask are gone then swipe over the face with hydrosol-soaked cotton pads.
Step 10: Pat the skin dry with a soft towel and apply your natural serum.
Step 11: Once the serum has been left on for 15 minutes, gently press a tissue to the face to absorb excess oil or leave for skin to soak up naturally if time permits.
