Cleansing helps remove dirt, oil, and other impurities from the skin’s surface and in pores. It is the first step in improving skin appearance, preventing blemishes, discoloration, inflammation, and general dullness. It is also the first step in nourishing skin and protecting the delicate structure that keeps skin functioning in a healthful manner!
When cleansing, it is essential that you choose a product that is gentle, natural, and devoid of harsh, irritating ingredients. Unfortunately, many cleansing products are designed with soaps and surfactants that can actually strip the skin of its natural oils, leaving it tight, dry, and susceptible to irritation. If you’ve ever washed your skin and feel it pull tight against your face afterwards, it’s likely that you have disrupted the natural layer that protects skin against bacteria and moisture loss.
After cleansing you want skin to feel fresh and supple, not tight and dry.
A cleanser I recommend:
The first step in the Celloxylin regimen, Crème Cleanse, is designed specifically with your skin’s delicate structure in mind. It contains natural surfactants derived from coconut that foam beautifully to wash impurities away. In addition to cleansing the skin’s surface, Crème Cleanse travels deep into pores to prevent buildup and blemishes, all without compromising skin barrier function. It is gentle yet effective, leaving skin clean, bright, and hydrated.
To get the most out of your cleansing experience, follow these tips:
- Use warm water when you cleanse. Water that is either too hot or too cold can damage skin.
- A little goes a long way! Crème Cleanse effectively rinses away impurities without the need for excess product or prolonged scrubbing. When rinsing, gently wet your face with warm water, massage a pea-sized amount of Crème Cleanse over skin in circular motions, rinse clean, and pat dry!
- Pay attention to how your skin feels! If your skin feels tight and dry after cleansing, you’ve likely overdone it. Apriori Beauty’s cleansing products are designed to protect the skin’s natural barrier layer and prevent stripping of natural oils during cleansing. However, if you have naturally dry skin or are exposed to environmental factors that cause drying, washing with a cleanser 2x per day may be too much. In this case, cleanse with Crème Cleanse at night (to remove makeup and buildup from the day) and simply rinse with warm water in the morning.
- Begin steps 2-5 of the Celloxylin regimen immediately after cleansing! The Celloxylin regimen is designed to take advantage of water absorbed during rinsing to help carry moisture deep into skin.
