Quick Cleansing Tips to Achieving a Flawless Complexion

  • Now that you have found your cleanser remember it takes up to six weeks for the effects of a new skin care routine to show on your skin, patience is key when trying a new product!
  • You only need a small amount of cleanser, no more than a 5-cent piece – extra product does not equal extra clean.
  • Wash you face daily at the sink using warm water and a washer, this water will loosen dirt and clogged pores while the washer will act as a light exfoliant on your skin.
  • Keep the lid on your cleanser closed as exposure to air can cause bacteria to grow in the bottle and you do not want bad bacteria on your skin.
