The Summer Skincare Secret

Do You Really Need to Pre Cleanse?

When it comes to skincare, sometimes the simplest steps can make a the biggest difference. That's where pre cleansing comes in. This often overlooked and misunderstood technique holds incredible benefits for your skin, making it an essential addition to your daily routine. Let me tell you why this is one of my favorite steps and why you should start doing it too. 

Let’s start with how you precleanse. Oil attracts oil, so you want to use an oil base product like a cleansing oil or cleansing balm that emulsifies (rinses off with water) and doesn’t strip the skin or leave it feeling tight and dry. This step is crucial in the summer because of the added factor of sweat, especially with us spending more time in the sun.

Now that we know the how, lets discuss the why…

1. Bye-bye Dirt and Grime

Pre cleansing works wonders in removing the daily buildup of excess oil, dirt, makeup, and daily impurities that settle in your pores. It's like hitting the reset button for your face, giving it a clean slate to work with. By eliminating these impurities upfront, you set the stage for your regular face cleanser to do its job effectively.

 2. Skincare, Activate!

Imagine your skincare products working at their full potential. Pre cleansing helps to achieve just that. By removing surface grime, your serums, moisturizers and treatments can penetrate deeper into your skin. This means they can deliver their benefits more efficiently, leading to improved results and a radiant complexion.

 3. Fights Breakouts like a Pro

Clogged pores are a breeding ground for breakouts. Pre cleansing plays a crucial role in preventing them. By deep cleaning your pores, you reduce the chances of pore blockage. This step is especially beneficial for those with oily or acne-prone skin, giving you a better shot at clear, blemish-free skin.

 4. Hello, Hydration and Moistureization (that’s a word, right?)

Who doesn't love a hydrated, plump-looking complexion? Well, pre cleansing with a skin oil can help with that too! Our skin oil pre-cleansers are packed with nourishing ingredients that replenish moisture and balance your skin, leaving it soft, supple and glowing.

 5: Myth Buster

Pre cleansing is not a makeup removal technique, meaning everyone should pre cleanse whether you wear makeup or not. The purpose is to bring everything to the surface of the skin prior to cleansing your face with a milky or foaming face cleanser. Removing your makeup during this step is an added bonus. You skin oil or balm should be able to remove waterproof and long wear makeup to really benefit from pre cleansing. You should not have to use makeup wipes (gasp) or micellar water to remove anything remaining before your 2nd cleanse.

Don't underestimate the power of pre cleansing. This simple step can revolutionize your daily skincare and unlock your skin's true potential! To add this game changing step to your routine, check out our Rose Orange Moisturizing or Tea Tree Lavender Pre cleanse Skin Oils and if you prefer a cleansing balm, I have a couple of recommendation for those too.
