There are many ways to wash your face, but if your skin is normal to dry, I highly recommend beginning your routine with the Ever Skincare Luminous Cleansing Balm. Not only does it feel luxurious, but it leaves your skin feeling radiant and soft. Did you know that many people don’t know how to properly use a cleansing balm? In fact, I initially didn’t! We often think of washing our faces as lathering up with foaming cleansers, but depending on your skin type, this isn’t always the way to go. Here’s how to properly use Luminous and get the most out of it:
1. Start with dry skin and clean, dry hands. I know it goes against everything you thought you knew about face wash, but this step is key. Warm the balm between your fingers and gently massage it in circular motions throughout your face. Luminous also doubles as a make-up remover!
2. Grab that cloth. Take a clean cloth, dampen with hot water, and wring it out. Pro tip: use muslin cloths for an even deeper, gentler clean. Place the hot, damp cloth over your face and wait a moment for the steam to open your pores before proceeding to the next step.
3. Wipe it away. Take your muslin (or other!) wash cloth and gently wipe away the Luminous. If your make-up is heavy, you might need to repeat steps 2 and 3.
