1.DISCOVER RANGE MINI: CLEANSING AND MAKE UP REMOVAL
The sebum we produce mixed with the dead skins we naturally shed throughout the day, skincare products, sunscreens and makeup, dust, smoke and various pollutant from our daily environment, all build up in a layer and sit on the surface of our skin. This dirty layer needs to be cleaned every day to prevent the clogging of pores, to promote the good oxygenation and healthy skin cell regeneration processes. Accumulated dead tissues and impurities are sometime difficult to clean thoroughly, without over-stripping the fragile barrier that is our skin.
Pure virgin oils are a fantastic gentle option to dissolve, and lift dirty fatty build-ups and waterproof make up, while respecting the integrity of our skin.
WHAT IT DOES: Carrier/ Virgin oils GENTLY removes pollutants, dirt, excess sebum, and oily makeup and sunscreen. They leave the skin barrier protected and do not destroy the skin natural Ph (does not strip). They form a thin layer that prevent skin dehydration. They calm irritated skins and promote a good regeneration of the skin cells, helping good and healthy tissues repair. They even complexion and keep the sebum production balanced. They nourish and gives your skin a healthy, luminous glow and leaves your skin clean, feeling soft, supple and stronger.
SUITABLE FOR: all skin types even oily, pimple and irritation prone skins. Highly recommended for dry, sensitive, delicate, fragile, damaged, irritated skins.
HOW TO CLEANSE YOUR FACE OR REMOVE MAKE-UP WITH OILS?
Basic cleansing oil: pick 2 virgin carrier oils from your pack according to the condition of your skin. In a clean amber bottle, mix them in equal quantities (50/50)
Apply the oils directly onto your dry face; Use your fingertips to gently massage the oil into the skin.
Day cleanse: light and fast method for the beginning of the day to cleanse, nourish and protect your skin, all at the same time. Also great for sensitive areas (around the eyes, eye lid and lashes): soak a cotton pad with the oil(s) of your choice, dab your face and the concern areas and let the oil’s lifting power work for a few seconds. Gently wipe off the oils.
Evening cleanse: to remove the day’s accumulated grime or heavy make-up and other impurities: Apply a little (1/2 to 1 teaspoon) of your chosen oils/blend directly onto your dry face. (You can emulsify with a little warm water on your fingertips).
Gently massage the oils into your skin using circular motions with your fingertips. Don’t forget your eye lids and contours, and your lips. Always be gentle and take your time to let the oils do their work.
Soak a cotton cloth in warm water and wring it out to remove all excess water. Use the warm humid cloth to gently wipe off the oils.
Pat dry with a towel.
After cleansing or removing make-up,
Some people do not like the feeling of an oily residue on their face.
If this is your case, follow your oil cleanse by a light wash with a neutral gentle soap or a spray of hydrosol (floral water) on a cotton pad to remove any leftover oils. Your face doesn’t feel oily anymore, it should be soft and relaxed. Hydrate your skin (spray of water, hydrosol, or Aloe vera) and moisturize for the night (cream, lotion, or your own serum).
TO MAKE YOUR OWN DUAL-PHASE GENTLE CLEANSER
All you need is a virgin oil and a hydrosol or liquid aloe vera of your choice to create a cleanser that is both nourishing and hydrating. Choose virgin oils and hydrosols that are best adapted to your skin needs of the moment.
In a spray bottle, mix equal part (50/50) virgin oil with the liquid of your choice. That’s it! You are done. Shake well before each use (since oil and water do not mix) and spray on a cotton pad before swiping your face gently.
Ex: jojoba oil with lavender hydrosol (soothing and purifying on irritated skins), rosemary hydrosol, tea tree hydrosol (purifying on pimples, acne prone…)
Not more than once a day.
Most people choose to oil cleanse at night to remove the day’s accumulated impurities.
Followed by a gentle soap and warm water rinse directly afterward to remove any oily residue before applying a light serum or moisturizer for the night.
Some people with very dry, irritable or sensitive skins, also choose the oil cleanse method in the morning, to give their skin extra soothing, protection, and nourishment throughout the day.
It may take a week or two for your skin to adjust and become happily balanced and radiant.
If you are getting an increase in breakouts, especially after you’ve been oil cleansing for a couple of weeks, you may need to choose to gently face wash after your oil cleanse, change the oils you use, or stop oil cleansing altogether.
