Breaking down the basics: Cleansing

Posted on

 How would you like to learn about cleansing your skin without stripping your skin of essential components? 

Let's start with an important reminder that our skin's purpose is to keep out the bad while maintaing the good.  So we need to work with our skin, not against it.

When it comes to cleansing the first and most important question to ask is, not am I getting my skin completely clean, but, am I stripping my skin by over cleansing?  

Irritations, rashes, flakes, breakouts, etc. can all be signs you are over cleansing and therefore stripping your skin of essential components.  The skin needs to maintain its protective barrier and natural healthy oils in order to maintain optimal skin health.

So if you are experiencing any of the above listed challenges, what we are saying is….stop over cleansing your face!  Cleansing your face is only necessary 1x per day.

OMG…. you said what…...only wash my face once a day…

Yes, believe it or not, you really only need to fully cleanse your face once a day (most commonly in the evening) to remove make-up, residue, sunscreen, free-radicals, dirt, sweat, etc.   Each evening use room temperature water (hot and cold water can upset the skin's balance), mix with your Milo Micro Grains until you have a good paste like consistency and apply in light circular motions to your face and neck. Our micro grains also work really well with an electronic cleansing brush.  You would apply the grains in the same manner to your face and then use your electronic brush over the entire face.  Rise thoroughly with water and pat dry.  

Morning: Begin with a quick fresh water rinse (remember use room temperature water) or skip the rise and start of your morning routine with your Laguna Colorada Cleansing Tonic.  Use 2-3 pumps on a cotton pad or towel and wipe over your entire face and neck to start your day with refreshed and highly nourished skin.

*From time to time, individuals can experience extremely oily skin in the morning and may feel that the tonic is not enough on it’s own and find it necessary to wash twice daily.  This is perfectly ok - as everyone’s skin is ever evolving.  As a rule of thumb cleansing and micro exfoliation once daily is preferred but when your skin is not agreeing, listing to it and adjust accordingly.

**If you have been at the gym, out for a run, or exploring the great outdoors, the Laguna Colorada Cleansing Tonic is a great go-to quick cleanse product to use immediately afterwards.  With its antiseptic and antibacterial properties, along with it’s ability to kill free radicals, it will help to keep the skin clean and in balance even after you have been challenging it all day long!
