HOW TO USE OUR CLEANSERS

WHAT IS CLEANSING?

Cleansing is the essential first step in your skincare routine. Cleansers dissolve daily dirt, grime, impurities and make-up, gently clearing the skin to leave it ready for the next step of your routine. There are cleansers available for every skin type to help address your skin's concerns.

HOW TO APPLY CLEANSERS

STEP 1
Tie your hair back away from your face. Dampen your skin with lukewarm water.

STEP 2
Apply a coin-sized amount of your chosen cleanser, work between your hands and apply to face.

STEP 3
Massage into your skin, including your neck.

STEP 4
Rinse with lukewarm water, or remove with our Muslin Cloth.

STEP 5
Use a cotton pad to apply your chosen toner to dry, cleansed skin.

WHAT TYPES OF CLEANSERS ARE THERE?

Creamy cleansers, like our Vitamin E Cream Cleanser, are perfect for cleansing and hydrating dry skin, while clearer formulas, like our Seaweed Cleansing Gel Wash help to mattify oily skin.

If you like a gentle skin-cleansing routine, lather up with our Tea Tree Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser or Drops of Youth™ Gentle Foaming Cleanser. If you want to remove more pollution, add Drops of Youth™ Liquid Peel or Vitamin C Glow Revealing Liquid Peel to your ritual 2-3 times every week.

WHAT IS DOUBLE CLEANSING?

Double cleansing is a two-step method for cleaning your skin: the first step removes make-up and SPF, the second step simply cleanses the skin. Double cleansing may be necessary if you wear a lot of make-up, a daily SPF or spend a lot of time in a city, which can result in added pollution on the skin.

Our Camomile Cleansing Oil and Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter are the perfect duo for leaving skin cleansed, refreshed and nourished.
