Cleansing your skin is an important and healthy habit to have; just like brushing your teeth. But it’s important to do this gently, which is why we recommend using cleansers made of natural ingredients and avoiding harsh detergents like SLS that can strip, irritate and dry out the skin (we have a few gentle cleansers to choose from). Exfoliation is also something that can help keep your skin looking fresh by removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin which can make it look dry and dull. The silicone bristles gently cleanse and scrub the skin without the sharpness of some exfoliating particles found in commercial exfoliating products. Using a cleansing pad is also a great way to encourage blood flow in the face through the massaging action. The handy, pointed shape of the design allows you to easily hold the pad and easily clean around the eyes and nose. You’ll wonder how you ever got on without this.
What's the best way to use a cleansing pad?
We recommend applying desired cleansing product directly onto the bristles on the pad and then applying to a wet face. Massage cleansing product into the skin with upward, circular motions (we think they work well). The longer you do this the better as it allows for a deeper cleanse. It’s also a great excuse for a face massage which invigorates the skin and feels really nice too. Rinse the pad of any product and then continue to scrub the face in circular motions. This will help wash some of the product off and gently exfoliate the skin. Rinse face with warm water and repeat as required.
Can the silicone cleansing pad be used with an oil cleanser?
Yes, and we highly recommend this. Once your oil cleanser of choice (we make one of those) has been worked well into dry skin with your fingertips, wet the cleansing pad and further massage the oil cleanser into the skin. This will help emulsify the oils so they can penetrate deeper into the pores to dissolve old oil and dirt. Do this for at least 30 seconds (even longer if you have the time) to get the most benefit, and add a bit more water into the mix if needed. Once you’re done enjoying your face massage, rinse face with warm water. Follow with your favourite serum and moisturiser for a complete skincare routine.
