23 Jan My favorite 6 step cleansing routine featuring Environ’s Dual Action Pre-Cleansing Oil
My favorite 6 step cleansing routine featuring Environ’s Dual Action Pre-Cleansing Oil. The way we wash our face sets our skin up for each step that follows. Your cleansing routine has the ability to decongest and tone your pores, exercise your skin, and balance your natural moisture barrier. If performed too quickly or by using improper products for your skin’s type and condition you can also strip your skin, increase clogged pores, deplete your natural barrier of protection i.e over-dry and create red irritation on your skin. Most of us have never truly learned how to properly wash our faces, and many of us are not getting the full benefits of our expensive and beloved skin care products because of that. My favorite skin cleansing routine takes about 5 1/2 minutes to perform and the benefits you will receive from giving it a try daily should be noticeable within just a few days.
I was inspired to write this post after observing that 3 out of every 5 clients I see are unaware of how to properly cleanse their skin, and are suffering with unnecessary acne and extra blackheads because of it! I even had one client recently tell me she learned to wash her face through the Noxcema commercials in the 90’s which meant that she was cleansing for approximately 7 seconds. Her congested skin was the result of her not knowing how to thoroughly wash her face.
For this post I will be featuring Environ’s Dual Action Pre- Cleansing oil which is one of my personal favorite products for deep cleansing my own blackhead-prone skin without over-stripping. What I love about this product is that it is that it is formulated to emulsify once water is added over-top of the oil so it rinses clean without leaving the skin feeling oily or weighed down. I use this product on my clients in all of my facials and I can safely recommend it for ALL skin types. Since oil attracts oil, it does a beautiful job of loosening up existing blackheads that may want to lodge themselves onto your T-zone. When used daily, the way I am about to teach you, you can expect to see clearer, cleaner looking skin very quickly. If you are acne-prone please do not be afraid to use a pre-cleansing oil. On the contrary it will help to dislodge clogged pores while hydrating your skin. A high quality cleansing oil will actually keep your skin clearer, not clog your pores as you may fear.
