Depending on how you wash your face, your cleansing habits may be causing dry skin, irritation and breakouts. Here are some top dermatologist approved tips for face washing:

  1. Use a gentle cleanser. Cleansing should remove dirt, germs and excess oil, but anything too harsh will strip away moisture and irritate healthy cells. Our Reviving Cleanser is gentle and sulfate free!
  2. Make sure you wash away makeup, sunscreen and sweat, but don’t overdo the cleansing. Washing your face more than 1 to 2 times a day can actually cause your skin to produce more oil and breakouts.
  3. Stick to lukewarm water. Water that is too hot can overly dry out your skin.
  4. If you must exfoliate, don’t overdo it. Once or twice a week max. If you use Restorsea daily, you might skip additional exfoliation as our unique enzyme gently exfoliates dead skin cells. 
  5. Use a clean cloth to pat yourself dry… but not too dry. Leaving some droplets on the skin helps seal in the moisture when applying moisturizer.
  6. Be gentle to your eyes. The skin around this area is highly delicate so make sure not to scrub.
