Every day as we head outdoors for school or work, we expose our skin to a multitude of toxins. We often come back home with dull faces and vow to pay better attention to our skin’s health. But then we dismiss the idea as too taxing. What if we told you that taking care of your skin is as easy as a daily three-step skincare routine?
Cleanse, tone, and moisturize. This is the mantra of skincare bloggers around the world. Let’s start with that first step. Gently cleansing your face at the end of the day can wash away bacteria, makeup, and the dirt and grime that accumulated over the day. Not only that, but it also prepares your skin for the creams or serums you want to layer on top.
Ordinary cleansers, however, may sometimes contain chemicals that have side-effects. To steer clear of these potentially dangerous ingredients, we suggest a natural way to cleanse your skin for a glowing, healthy look.
How it Works
Toxins love to hide in open pores, sometimes reaching deeper inside the skin layers and causing black or whiteheads to appear. The job of a cleanser is to bind directly with the product or grime on your skin, removing it gently.
Whether your cleanser should be oil-based or water-based depends on your skin type. Some cleansers promote skin regeneration, while some of them have added compounds that can maintain skin health. Others incorporate exfoliating beads in the formula to remove dead skin cells from the epidermis.
A cleanser should be used every night before you go to bed and as soon as you wake up the next morning. This is the ideal way to prevent damage and maintain skin health in the long run as long as you use gentle and natural ingredients.
Make sure to choose the best kind of cleanser for your skin type. The wrong choice can dry out the skin or worse, cause a breakout.
The Right Way to Use a Cleanser
Even if you come across just the right product, it will not work properly if your method isn’t right.
Pump 1 or 2 pea-sized drops of Pearl Cleanser solution on to the palm of your hand. Blend with small amount of water. It is perfectly fine to apply the cleanser on wet on dry skin. It depends on your preference and works either way. You can monitor your skin over time to see what works better. If dry application is your method of choice, you will need to add some water to it as you wash your face.
Using a washcloth is fine, but if you have sensitive skin, try using just your finger tips in a gentle circular motion. Some people with sensitive skin find that washcloths irritate their skin and so application with just fingers works better for them. One of the ingredients in Pearl Cleanser is salicylic acid, which performs a mild exfoliating function, helping to lift and remove dead cells and the dirt attached to them.
If you do decide to use a washcloth, use a microfiber towel soaked in warm water to be as gentle as possible.
Rinse Your Face
Rinsing your face with water is an essential step; otherwise unnecessary residue may be left behind. Make sure the water is not too hot or you will dry out and irritate your pores. The usual recommendation is warm water since it is much better for your skin.
If you like your face to feel invigorated, finish your rinsing with some cool water.
Cleansing Different Skin Types
Knowing your skin type is important if you want your skincare routine to work. You may have dry skin, which needs moisture infused products, or oily skin that works better with water-based ingredients. Or you may have an oily T-zone with dry skin on your cheeks.
The first step is recognizing your type. There are many articles on the web that may be of help. Once you know what your skin needs exactly, it will be much easier to provide for it.
Oil-based deep cleansers are much the rage these days. While they may be able to penetrate deep into the skin layers, they can also bring the stubborn gunk in your pores to the surface. Many people with a more greasy skin type have reported breakouts and spots. If you also have oily skin, invest in a gentle foaming cleanser. Remember to check for sulfates! Your skin can do without detergents, thank you.
Whether your skin type is dry, combination, or oily, Pearl Cleanser is tender enough to suit you. With its mostly-natural ingredients, this cleanser dials down the risk of chemical side-effects.
Aloe, Jojoba, and Safflower
The aloe vera plant has long been known for its soothing properties. A key ingredient in Pearl Cleanser, it calms the skin and restores its pH balance. Another main ingredient of the Pearl Cleanser formula is Jojoba oil. It has anti-inflammatory properties that can work wonders for skin that’s blemished or tired of everyday dust and smoke.
These two magic ingredients are combined with Safflower, which removes dirt and oil without drying out the skin. Niacinamide works on the side to tighten pores and reduce dullness.
Smoothes Skin and Complexion
The three main ingredients combine with other natural compounds to form a mild but effective product. It has been shown to speed up cellular turnover, smooth the complexion, and tighten the skin in a few weeks’ time. Regular use can keep your skin glowing and slow down the signs of aging.
Easy on the Skin
Pearl Cleanser brightens and maintains your skin without the risk of side-effects. Because all our ingredients are natural, they do their job without hurting or damaging your skin. You can safely use the product twice a day without worrying about dryness or breakouts.
If you are new to skincare, it may seem unrealistic to hear the words ‘easy’ and ‘skincare routine’ in the same breath. But trust us, replacing your usual face wash with a gentle, nourishing cleanser will show you results you never expected without the loss of natural oils. Keep telling yourself that your skin is precious and it needs a tender, caring touch. We look forward to seeing what Pearl Cleanser does for you!
