No matter what your skincare needs are, cleansing should be the obvious and essential first step in your regular skincare routine. Your morning routine should focus around protection and prevention and your evening routine should focus on repairing. Throughout the day, our skin is exposed to impurities such as dirt and oil which can and cause blemishes and breakouts.
A proper skin cleansing clears pores of debris to prevent dirt buildup, allowing the sebum oil to reach the skin surface unimpeded; decreasing the chances of a breakout.
We have picked one of our favourite natural cleansers and why it could be the perfect solution for you.
Hemp Seed Oil
Hemp seed oil is a fantastic anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory cleanser. This makes it perfect for almost all skin types, even if you suffer from oily or dry skin. Hemp oil can regulate your skin’s oil production and moisturise without clogging your pores.
Hemp seed oil contains high levels of omega-3 and omega-6 which can help treat underlining skin conditions like dermatitis. It also contains linoleic and oleic acids, chemicals which have been proven to have anti-aging properties and we cannot produce them ourselves. These acids can reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as slow down signs of aging.
Make your own:
Hemp seed oil can be applied directly to your face and skin. You can add your favourite essential oil to add even more cleansing power. If you like lavender, which is also anti-bacterial and has a lovely fragrance, simply add a few drops to the oil and apply.
We recommend storing your cleanser in a little bottle with a dropper. You only need a palmful each day, so a small bottle should last you a long time.
How to apply:
Day or night, simply pour a little cleanser in the palm of your hand and gently massage into your skin. Leave the oil on for two minutes and use a warm, wet, hand towel to gently wipe off any residue. Revealing perfectly clean skin.
