No matter what your skin type, you may like to discover the benefits of double cleansing, where a cleansing balm is applied before the cleanser or face wash in order to remove oil and make-up from the skin.

How to apply your cleanser or face wash

A daily cleansing routine morning and evening is important for healthy looking skin. It is important to cleanse the skin in the morning to remove fats, waste products and dead skin cells so your skin will be able to breathe. It is especially important to cleanse the face and neck before bedtime - to remove the day's dirt, grease and make-up.

  • Cleanser
    For use both day and night in your cleansing routine. Using your fingertips apply the cleanser in small circular movements to face and neck. Remove with cotton wool or wash off with warm water and follow with a splash of cold water to stimulate circulation.
  • Face Wash
    For use both day and night in your face care routine. Shake gently and apply the face wash to moistened skin and massage gently into the face and neck. Rinse with tepid water and pat dry with a towel. For added anti-blemish properties our Oy! Foaming Clear Skin Face Wash can be left on for a few extra minutes.
  • Cleansing Balm
    Apply a warm muslin cloth to face and neck. Warm the balm in your hands, inhale the therapeutic aromas and massage gently over face, neck and eyes. Remove with warm muslin cloth. Finish by rinsing the cloth in cold water and pressing gently over face and neck.

Why is it important to remove your make-up?

Foundations and coloured day creams pollute your skin and prevent it from breathing, so a good cleansing routine is essential to enable your skin to repair and restore. When you cleanse your skin you stimulate the blood circulation and essential nutrients and actives will more easily be absorbed through the skin. At night your skin works to form new, fresh skin cells which renew your skin. Without removing make-up you are stopping the restorative power of your skin.

Skin cleansing tips

  • Cleanse your face and neck at least one minute morning and evening.
  • Select the cleansing product suitable for your skin type (depending on season)
  • Do not wash your face with too hot or cold water - both can damage the small blood vessels in the skin.
  • Do not use cleansing products that contain alcohol (ethanol/ethyl alcohol) - they remove the skin's protective layer of natural fat, and over stimulate the glands to increase fat production.
  • Exfoliation should be part of your cleansing routine to remove dead skin cells and performed twice a week
