Knowing how and in what order to use facial products can be confusing! However, to receive the most effective results from your facial care products, it is important to understand.
Below are our simplified recommendations using a sensitive skincare routine as an example:
The first step is cleansing. Cleansing should be done twice a day. Before and after sleep are great times for this routine.
We recommend using Perfectly Natural’s Glow Natural Rosewater Foaming Facial Soap and/or our Micellar Water Unscented Pads. Both cleanse gently, leaving your face feeling fresh and containing no harsh ingredients.
The next step is to exfoliate and gentle exfoliation should be part of your daily skincare routine. Exfoliating helps to remove the build-up of dead skin cells, revealing new skin cells beneath and allowing moisturizers to be more easily absorbed. This also helps to prevent pores from becoming clogged.
For sensitive skin, use our Simply Konjac Sponge (it may be used on its own or paired with our foaming cleanser). If your skin tolerates exfoliating well, try Perfectly Natural Soap’s, Exfoliating & Antioxidant Natural Facial Scrub weekly. It uses tiny wax beads to do the scrubbing and since the wax doesn't have hard, harsh edges, it won't give any micro-tears or abrasions to your sensitive skin.
Follow up exfoliating with a toner. Toners are mildly astringent, hydrating and soothing, helping to combat redness, but more importantly, they restore and help to maintain your skin’s optimum pH balance. Our Rose Water Toner is wonderfully gentle and calming, making it the best choice for sensitive skin. After cleansing, lightly mist the entire face, closing eyes, to protect them. Allow toner to air dry, which will only take a few moments.
Once the toner is dry, its time for serum. For sensitive skin, Glow Natural Facial Serum, is a great gentle choice for daily application. Serums are concentrated, potent age fighters, making them a valuable step in facial care routines! Serums are made up of very small molecules that are easily absorbed deeper into your skin and packed with antioxidants. They leave skin looking and feeling firm and toned.
The last step in your daily regimen is moisturizing. Moisturizing should be done twice a day. Perfectly Natural Soap’s Glow Natural Moisturizer and Triple Butter Night Cream serve as the perfect duo for day and night moisturizing. For drier or more mature skin, we suggest adding our Glow Natural Eye Cream to rejuvenate and soothe more the delicate under eye area.
Optionally, a weekly mask of our Rose Oatmeal Clay will brighten and even skin tones.
Using this simply routine as a guide will leave you with healthy, glowing skin!
