The Benefits Of Organic, 100% Plant Based Facial Cleansing

The Amazing Benefits Of Organic, 100% Plant Based Facial Cleansing

Before we dig into facial cleansing, here are the basic steps to cleansing your face without damaging your skin.

  • Use a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser that does not contain alcohol.
Soap based cleansers are better because they are generally free of harmful synthetics, alcohols and astringents.

  • Wet your face with lukewarm water and use your fingertips to apply cleanser. Using a washcloth, mesh sponge, or anything other than your fingertips can irritate your skin.

  • Resist the temptation to scrub your skin because scrubbing irritates the skin.

  • Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry with a soft towel.

  • Apply moisturizer if your skin is dry or itchy. Be gentle when applying any cream around your eyes so you do not pull too hard on this delicate skin.

  • Limit washing to twice a day and after sweating. Wash your face once in the morning and once at night, as well as after sweating heavily. Perspiration, especially when wearing a hat or helmet, irritates the skin. Wash your skin as soon as possible after sweating.

Now For The Interesting Details

Our faces are like living canvasses, reflecting our stories and experiences. Just as an artist prepares their canvas before wielding the brush, organic, plant-based cleansing sets the stage for a healthy, radiant complexion. Forget harsh soaps and cleansers – the future of skincare is all about clean facial cleansing with pH-balanced soaps, the unsung heroes of a glowing routine.

Striking The Perfect Balance: Understanding pH

Imagine your skin as a delicate ecosystem with a naturally slightly acidic pH of around 5.5. This acidity acts as a protective barrier, shielding us from harmful bacteria and environmental stressors. Harsh soaps and cleansers often disrupt this balance, tipping the scales towards alkalinity. This throws our skin's protective mantle into disarray, leading to a cascade of consequences:

    • Dryness and irritation: Stripped of its natural oils and acidity, skin becomes parched and vulnerable, manifesting as tightness, flaking, and redness.
    • Overactive oil production: In response to the disrupted barrier, the skin goes into overdrive, producing excess oil to compensate for the lost moisture, leading to breakouts and shine.
    • Weakened defense: A compromised pH barrier leaves skin susceptible to bacteria and free radicals, accelerating the signs of aging and increasing the risk of infections.

Enter the Organic, Plant-Based Soap Facial Cleanser: Your Gentle Champion

This is where pH-balanced organic facial cleansing truly shines. Formulated with gentle, organic, vegan, 100% plant-based ingredients, these cleansers effectively remove dirt, oil, and makeup without wreaking havoc on the skin's delicate pH balance. Here's how they work their magic:

    • Maintaining the Mantle: By gently cleansing without stripping away natural oils, pH-balanced organic soaps preserve the skin's protective barrier, keeping it soft, supple, and resilient.

Beyond The Basics: Choosing The Right Organic Cleanser

Not all pH-balanced soaps are created equal. some have synthetic and toxic ingredients that can be very harmful to your skin and your body. When choosing your perfect cleanser, consider the ingredients listed on the bottle, your skin type and individual needs. If you don't recognize an ingredient look it up before you put it on your skin.

    • Dry or sensitive skin: Any real pH balanced soap based facial cleanser with natural moisturizing ingredients like avocado oil, coconut oil, macadamia and kukui oil.
    • Oily or acne-prone skin: Any real pH balanced soap based facial cleanser is ideal for acne prone skin as it will cleanse without drying or irritating.
    • Mature skin: Any real pH balanced soap based facial cleanser containing ingredients with ingredients with high levels of antioxidants like vitamin C (Rose Hip Oil), vitamin D (Sweet Almond Oil) , and vitamin E (Avocado Oil or resveratrol (Kukui Seed Oil) to cleanse without drying and to combat free radical damage and promote collagen production.

Finally, How To Properly Cleanse Your Face

  1. Once you’ve picked the best cleanser for your skin type, wet your skin using nice warm water and massage the cleanser in your hands making a creamy lather and then massage the lather onto your face using only your fingers and continue for at least 30 seconds to one minute. 
  • About Finger Tips And This Is 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. Your fingertips are perfect so use them.
  • About Water Temperature And This Is Important. Your water should not be too hot or too cold :: we call it "Goldilocks 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.
  1. Rinse away the cleansing lather completely and pat your skin dry with a CLEAN towel. Change your towels daily if you can, as they harbor bacteria. Do not rub the towel horizontally across your skin, the fibers can be irritating to you skin.
  • About Patting Your Skin Dry, This Is Important. Anything that scratches your skin, stresses your skin, causing irritation, so just use a soft clean towel and gently pat your skin.
  1. Leave a little moisture on your face and with slightly damp skin, apply your facial toner. You’ll notice our toners use reverse osmosis water. Reverse osmosis water can help break down the large molecules of tap water into smaller molecule sizes, which better preps your skin to absorb your moisturizer and allows it to absorb more water for added hydration. The water in your toner is used as a neutralizer to rebalance your skin’s pH (it likes to be slightly acidic, around 4.5-5.5) after using a cleansing product, which is usually on the more alkaline side.
  2. 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.

Remember, Consistency Is Key. 

Just like a blank canvas awaits the artist's touch, clean and balanced facial skin paves the way for a healthy, vibrant complexion. So, ditch the harsh cleansers and embrace the gentle power of organic, plant-based facial cleansing. Your skin will thank you for it!

Bonus Tip: 

For an extra pampering experience, pair your pH-balanced organic soap with a lukewarm water rinse. Avoid hot water, which can strip away natural oils and irritate the skin.

With a little care and the right tools, your organic, plant based and vegan facial cleansing routine will be a transformative ritual, unveiling the radiant canvas that lies beneath. So, go forth, cleanse with confidence, and let your inner glow shine through!
