How To Use Your Luminance Skincare Samples.
Your facial skin has simple needs. It needs to be Cleansed, pH Balanced and Moisturized. It likes to be treated gently with warm water and your gentle fingertips.
About Fingertips And Water Temperature
Finger Tips Are Important. Your fingertips are the perfect cleansing tool for your delicate facial skin. Anything with texture will scrape your skin and cause unpredictable and unwanted reactions. So avoid wash cloths, sponges or even micro fiber facial cloths. Just use your fingers, they're perfect
Water Temperature Is Also Important. Your water should not too hot not to cold :: we call it "Goldilox Water". If it's too hot, it'll dehydrate your skin. If it's too cold, it'll close up your skin and your cleanser will not be as deeply penetrating as it needs to be. Nice warm water is always best and it feels wonderful.
So Lets Get Started
Shake your Delicate Facial Cleanser: To mix the ingredients and then wet your facial skin with nice warm. Now, spray a bit of Delicate Cleanser onto your hands and massage it into a nice creamy lather. Massage the lather onto your face using only your fingertips and continue for at least 30 seconds to one minute.
About Patting Your Skin Dry: This Is Important. Anything that scratches or stresses your skin, stresses your skin causing irritation, so just use a soft clean towel and gently pat your skin.
Spray On Your Rosewater Toner: just a light mist covering your face. Take a minute to notice it smells just like roses, that's because it's 100% pure rosewater. The toner is rebalancing the pH of your skin after exposure to tap water.
Apply Your Moisturizer And Serum: Leaving your skin a little bit moist with toner is the perfect time to apply your serum or moisturizer. Moisturizers and Serums penetrate more deeply requiring less to do their job properly if your skin is just a little bit moist. If you're using a serum apply it first to your slightly damp skin. Wait a few minutes and apply your moisturizer.
Consistency Is Important.
Just like a blank canvas awaits the artist's touch, clean and balanced facial skin paves the way for a healthy, vibrant complexion.

Why Our Soap Based Facial Cleansers Are Amazing
- Natural Ingredients: Soap-based facial cleansers are crafted from natural oils and fats combined with an alkali. They lack many of the toxic and skin damaging synthetic chemicals found in nearly all commercial facial products, especially the facial cleansers. This translates to fewer chances of allergic reactions, sensitivities, or long-term damage to your skin and your body.
- Gentle Cleansing: Soap-based cleansers effectively remove dirt and makeup without causing excessive dryness or damage to your skin. Their lipid-rich composition helps maintain the skin's natural barrier.
- Environmental Consideration:Soap-based cleansers, especially when crafted from organic and sustainably-sourced ingredients, have reasonably small environmental footprint. Ours are 100% biodegradable and free from harmful microplastics, which can pollute water systems and harm marine life.
Why Toning With A pH Balanced Floral Water Toner Is So Wonderful
- Need For Floral Water pH-balanced Toners: After cleansing, a pH-balanced facial toner can help restore the skin's natural pH. Ingredients like rose water, orange water, chamomile water or lavender water are ideal natural toners that will soothe the skin and rebalance its pH. Learn About pH
- Your Skin's Acid Mantle: The skin has a protective barrier called the acid mantle, which typically has a pH of around 4.5 to 5.5. This slightly acidic environment is crucial for maintaining skin health, preventing bacterial growth, and ensuring proper skin hydration.
- Tap Water: Most tap water, especially in urban areas, has a higher pH, often leaning towards alkaline. Using tap water, especially combined with an alkaline soap, can disrupt this acid mantle.
The reason your skin needs moisturization is when you gently cleanse, you remove all the stuff that has accumulated during the day. Along with the excess skin oils and skin cells that are spent, you remove some of the natural oils your skin needs.
Moisturizing With A Plant-Based Moisturizer
- Richness of Nutrients: Plant-based moisturizers often derive from sources like seeds, fruits, or nuts, making them rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids that nourish the skin. Learn About Moisturizing Ingredients
- Sebum Is Critical: Oils like jojoba closely resemble the skin's natural sebum, ensuring that plant-based moisturizers hydrate the skin without clogging pores or causing breakouts.
- Absorption And Efficacy: Many plant oils and extracts are more easily absorbed by the skin, penetrating deeper layers and delivering nutrients more effectively than their synthetic counterparts.
- Anti-Inflammatory And Healing Properties: Ingredients like chamomile, calendula, and rosehip oil have natural anti-inflammatory properties, soothing irritations, and promoting faster skin healing.
And Our Planet Needs Something As Well
- Environmental And Ethical Considerations:Plant-based moisturizers are often more sustainable and ethical, particularly when sourced organically and without harm to the environment. They don't rely on petrochemicals or animal by-products, making them a cleaner, more ethical choice. Why We Do Things The Way We Do
- And For The Planet:We do everything we can to make our footprint on this planet small where we might be harm and large where might do some good. We Are Doing What We Can
