The Glowing Face, Part 1

Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and frequently exposed to toxins.

Skin is your body’s coat.  It protects you from the elements, helps you stay warm or cool off depending on the weather, it keeps your organs in your body, and keeps out germs and water. Cleansing regularly will remove any dirt and residue from your skin. Keeping it your skin clean is important both for achieving a healthy glow, and avoiding build up, which can cause breakouts.

How To Use It:

Start by washing your hands.  If you are using a gel or foaming face wash, apply to damp skin with fingertips.   Cream based cleansers should be applied to a dry face. Massage product into the skin with a circular motion, rinse well, and wipe down face with a clean, damp cloth to remove any residue.  Follow up with a balancing toner. 

TIP:  applying cleanser with a facecloth will absorb too much of the product.  Use your fingers and save the face cloth for the final step.
