Cleansing Sensitive Skin


Do you have acne-prone or problem skin? Scrubbing your face is not a good thing to do to get rid of any dirt or bacteria. We have a much better way.


1: Best to always be gentle


It is important to cleanse your face without harming the surface of your skin. Your skin can be a breeding ground for bacteria so it is advisable to cleanse your face twice a day using a gentle cleanser and toner. There are many products available but best to choose natural skin care cleaner and toner that are specifically for sensitive skin.


Carol James our formulator at Elixir Skin Food recommend that you avoid any alcohol-based astringent, as they can be very harsh on the skin and will strip your skin of natural oils and moisture.


2: Best not to scrub your face


If you have acne-prone or problem skin you may believe that scrubbing your face is good to get rid of any dirt or bacteria. Being hard on your skin is being hard on yourself and scrubbing will irritate your delicate skin resulting in your skin to become more inflamed. When you keep your skin hydrated by gentle cleansing, toning and moisturising, with the right skin care products magic happens, your skin will start to look healthier very quickly.


3: Ingredients to avoid in skin cleansers


Always read the labels of skin care products as most of them contain harsh ingredients such as salicylic acid and glycolic acid, benzoyl peroxide or retinol. These ingredients can cause your skin to dry out and thin.


Check out our Elixir Skin Food Lavender Bud Facial Cleanser and Lavender Bud Spray Toner they contain rich skin loving ingredients that are great for gentle cleansing your skin reducing bacteria, which could be one reason for skin acne, blemishes and pimples.


4: Keep facial cleansing light


After cleansing and toning your face apply a hydrating moisturiser. If you have acne prone skin then best not to use an oily moisturiser as you need to keep your skin hydrated and pores un-clogged. Elixir Skin Food has just the right one one; our Hungry Skin Gel Moisturiser will keep the skin hydrated, fresh and feeling good without clogging it. Love yourself because you are beautiful.
