Let’s talk SKINCARE GOALS, shall we? So many products, so many questions. We are going to break it down so you know exactly how to get your skin glowing!
Manual, brush or towel? Manual cleansing with your hands is great for anyone with normal to sensitive skin types. Not too exfoliating, not so gentle it doesn’t get the job done. Love those cleansing brushes? So, do we! Just make sure it is silicone. Bristle type brushes harbor bacteria and will stifle your progress. Brushes are great for normal to oily skin types. If you have sensitive skin nix the brush. Cleansing towels are more suited for your skin type. They are easy on your skin and just throw them in the wash when you’re done. What could be easier?
BONUS TIP-Spend time with your cleanser so it can work! 60 seconds, small circular motions. Up your cleansing game with a double cleanse in the evening to really boost your skin’s performance.
