If you're trying to simplify your skincare and makeup routine, knowing when to cleanse, how to cleanse, and what cleansing products to use, can help you discern the essential from the nonessential and optimize your cleansing routine.

We’re taking a look at five simple steps that’ll help you perfect your skin cleansing routine and achieve radiant, healthy-looking skin.


1. Remove makeup first

It's important to remove all traces of makeup before washing your face as product left on the skin could lead to blocked pores and inflammation. A gentle makeup remover such as B.O.M. Voyage Cleansing Balm will nourish the skin and effectively remove makeup and dirt, without the irritation often associated with makeup remover wipes that contain high amounts of alcohol and synthetic fragrances. Enriched with jojoba seed oil, pear fruit extract, and evening primrose oil, this nourishing formula will help balance, hydrate, and condition your skin.

To remove makeup, place a small amount of product onto clean, dry hands, then gently massage it onto dry skin, focusing on areas with more makeup. Rinse with warm water and follow with your cleansing routine.


2. Choose the right facial cleanser

Whether you have normal, dry, oily, or combination skin, you’ll want to choose a cleanser specifically formulated for your skin type. Dry skin types do best with cream formulas, while oily types will benefit from foam formulas or gel cleansers. Alternatively, you can opt for a gel-to-foam formula suitable for all skin types such as Drift Away™ Cleanser. This gentle face cleanser offers a double-cleansing effect without stripping the skin and is enriched with coconut water, fruit extracts, seawater, and kelp to hydrate, balance, and revitalize the skin.

  1. Wet your face with lukewarm water – hot water can strip the skin of its natural oils, while cold water keeps the pores closed, not allowing dirt to be removed effectively.
  2. Apply one pump of product to clean fingertips, then gently work it into your face, jaw, and neck using small circular motions.
  3. Rinse with lukewarm water, making sure to remove all product from hard-to-reach places like the nose, ears, and hairline. Pat dry with a soft towel dedicated solely to drying your face. Do not rub.
  4. Follow with your usual skincare routine

Repeat twice daily.


3. Use a toner

Toners are liquid-based formulas designed to remove any leftover traces of dirt or makeup after cleansing and reset your skin's pH so it is prepared to remove bacteria and environmental pollutants. They also contain additional ingredients for specific skin types and concerns to help you balance your skin before moving into your day. Popular additions include rosewater, which has anti-aging properties, salicylic acid or witch hazel, especially beneficial for acne-prone skin, and hyaluronic acid, which promotes skin hydration, leading to a more youthful appearance.

Mist Connection Essence and Toner combines skin-loving camellia japonica seed, evening primrose, sunflower, and avocado oil with hyaluronic acid and niacinamide. This evens out, balances, moisturizes and preps the skin so that the rest of your skincare routine works more effectively. The mist spray makes it an easy addition to your face cleansing kit, helping you achieve balanced and hydrated skin.


4. Do a deep cleanse weekly

Exfoliation plays an important role in deep cleansing the skin. The goal of exfoliating is to unclog congested pores by clearing the build-up of dead skin cells, minimizing the appearance of pores, and improving skin texture. Fast Lane Instant Facial™ is our high-impact AHA/BHA-packed exfoliating mask that does just that, giving you a brighter, smoother, more youthful complexion without being harsh or irritating to your skin.

It’s suitable for all skin types and only requires 20 minutes once a week, making it easier than ever to stay gorgeous on the go.


5. Don't overdo it

If you have acne-prone skin, it may be tempting to wash your face more often, exfoliate excessively, and experiment with harsh chemicals that promise to fight acne. However, overdoing it is likely to lead to irritation, redness, and inflammation, which will only damage your skin further.

Once you've found products that your skin responds positively to, stick to them! Follow the guidelines listed above and always follow your cleansing routine with a hydrating moisturizer such as Dive In™ Moisturizer.

Be sure to avoid harsh chemicals such as parabens and phthalates, synthetic fragrances, sodium lauryl sulfate, and sodium laureth sulfate, which can cause uncomfortable reactions and skin irritation.
