Organic Cleansing Essentials
One of the most soothing parts of my day is when I start my evening skin care ritual by cleansing my skin. When cleansing my face, it feels like I am washing away the stress of the day and preparing for a relaxing sleep. It’s the moment when I can disengage with everything else and focus on myself for a few moments.
Before I read Perfect Skin, I used to cleanse with Awaken Cleanser every evening and a few times a week, I would use an exfoliating cleanser. I thought it was good for my skin to have a vigorous scrubbing. What I learned from Perfect Skin was that an exfoliating cleanser would actually strip my skin of good bacteria, which makes my skin more prone to breakouts.
Every evening, I use Awaken Cleanser to remove my makeup and cleanse the skin. It has a light, milky texture and is made from aloe vera and sunflower seed oil, which cleans the skin without damaging it. It has the most incredible scent (think lavender and rosemary) and leaves the skin clear and refreshed. While gentle, it is still incredibly effective and is strong enough to remove my eye make up.
2-3 evenings I week, I like to give my pores a deeper cleansing and boost of hydration so I apply Angel Balm after cleansing and leave on for 20 minutes. Angel Balm is quite possibly the most iconic Soveral product and receives rave reviews from beauty editors worldwide. It doubles as a deep pore cleanser and regenerative mask. You can also use it as lip balm and cuticle oil. I keep an extra jar packed in my travel bag because my skin tends to feel a bit grimy and dry when traveling.
Since I have adjusted my cleansing routine, my skin feels softer and smoother. If your skin is dull, dry or breaking out, I encourage you to try these cleansers. I am confident they will leave your skin refreshed and glowing.
