Cleansing is an essential step in having vibrant healthy looking skin. Cleansing helps to remove all dirt, oil and impurities from the surface layer of our skin.

Choosing a cleanser depends on your skin type.

  • Do you have rosea, psoriasis, allergies or other skin problems?
  • Do you have dry to normal skin or combination to oily skin?
  • Do you want your cleanser to exfoliate?
  • Do you want your cleanser to freshen?

How do I cleanse?

  • Choose an appropriate cleanser for your skin type.
  • Wet your face with water or a damp facial cloth.
  • Apply your cleanser in an upward and outward motion, avoiding the skin around the eye area.
  • When finished thoroughly remove cleanser with damp facial cloth.

Moisturizing hydrates your skin, keeping it firm, helping to prevent the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibers.

Choosing a moisturizer depends on your skin type.
