Using a high-quality cleanser is Step One of rock-solid skin care routine.
For most of us, our day to day lives takes place in an environment that puts our skin under constant stress. Pollutants and irritants latch onto our skin throughout the day, clogging up pores and causing oil and dirt to add up.
Cleansing goes toe to toe with grime, unclogging our pores, removing make-up and sloshing off any dead skin cells. Cleansing sets the stage for any products that come after, giving you more bang-for-your-buck with your toners, eye creams, serums and moisturisers.
What goes onto your skin also goes into your body. When we look to food for a nourishing healthful boost, we know to go for all-natural, high-quality ingredients (with the one exception being ice-cream, but I’m pretty sure that has soul-boosting-benefits). The way we view skincare products should be no different, with better quality ingredients leading to better quality skincare results.
Looking to lower your ecological footprint? Going organic and natural where possible helps protect the ecosystem, harmful synthetics and chemicals can have a destructive effect not only on our health but our soil and water.
Brushing for Boosted Benefits
While your fingers can do a fine job, our Sonic Cleansing Brush takes your cleanser to all new grime busting levels. Up to 11 times more effective at removing grime and makeup than manual cleansing alone. Our brush gets to work with tiny sonic pulses, brushing your skin with anti-bacterial bristles that dislodge any impurities, all while remaining gentle on your skin. A game changer for sure.
Debunking Cleansing Brush Myths
I have sensitive skin, won't brushing cause irritation?
Nope, just be gentle and don’t go overboard, staying with your usual cleanser and brushing twice per week is a good place to get started.
You may experience a breakout after brushing for the first time, this is the adjustment period and what your seeing is transient acne (a short-term reaction to the stimulus brushing has on your skin) – remember nothing good comes easy, once you’ve detoxified your skin its health will go from strength to strength
Won't it just spread bacteria around my face?
This only happens if you don’t clean your brush after use.
- Rinse the brush head under warm water and use an unscented liquid soap to remove any dirt and makeup residue
- Using your fingers, massage the bristles in a clockwise direction for a minute, switch to counterclockwise and repeat the process.
- Once a week, soak the brush heads in some surgical spirits for a minute and don’t rinse off after, this will kill any remaining bacteria.
- Always let your brush heads air dry.
- Whilst the handle is water resistant, it is not waterproof so don’t submerge and wipe dry afterwards.
- For best results replace your brush heads every 3 months.
- The same way you wouldn’t share your toothbrush, don’t share your face brush with anyone else.
I have acne, is a cleansing brush out of the question?
Absolutely not! Our brush can help treat acne, eliminating excess sebum (a major contributor to acne production). You need to pick the right cleanser to pair with it (we can help) and introduce brushing slowly, two to four per week, paying attention to any angry outbreaks, scale back use if needed.
Be careful if you suffer with Cystic Acne (angry, tender red bumps from deep within your skin) as brushing can worsen this form of acne.
