This is to be used at night as a prequal (first step) to your nightly deep cleanse. It is not necessary to deep cleanse in the morning, if done the previous night.
If your skin feels tight after your cleansing routine, your products are too harsh. Over-cleansing the skin creates weakness and has a tendency to inflame the skin in the form of rashes. Over-cleansing acne-prone skin strips it of its natural oils and forces it to produce even more sebum (an oily substance secreted by the sebaceous gland). An excess of sebum combined with dead skin cells can block pores and cause acne blemishes such as black heads and pimples.
How Does it Work?
To be simple, oil dissolves oil. The Pre-Cleanse Purge is an oil cleanser that dissolves excess oils and built up bacteria in the skin. It also helps to lock in all products put on after it.
- Squeeze 2-4 drops of Pre-Cleanse Purge into your hands and rub your hands together to blend all over your face. Do this for 2 minutes.
- Add warm water to your hands and blend the oil/water mix all over your face for 1 additional minute.
- Take a warm rag and hold it over your face for 30 seconds. This helps to open your pores. Then use the rag to gently wipe off the oil.
- Then continue with your washing your face, using toner, and moisturize.
