Why is a cleansing balm good for the skin?
Cleansing balms are oil-based makeup removers that dissolve makeup without stripping your skin. Shea & Mango Butters helps to break down makeup and sunscreen while softening the skin.
Why is cleansing the skin important?
Without cleansing and purifying, your skin would be covered with a thick layer of dirt and oil which makes it difficult for the active ingredients in skincare to penetrate the skin properly. Having clean skin will allow for effective absorption of your skincare products and will make your skin more receptive to treatments that follow like exfoliators, masks, serums, and moisturizers.
When should I cleanse my skin?
Our RANAVAT esthetician recommends cleansing twice a day:
- In the morning to remove excess sebum and dead skin cells accumulated during the night, helping to balance the skin.
- In the evening to purify and cleanse the skin of (makeup, sunscreen, dirt, oil, etc) and better prep skin to absorb skincare treatments.
Will this leave my skin feeling greasy? Will it leave a residue? Do I need to use another cleanser after this?
The Lotus Cleansing Balm rinses clean, however, we always recommend a double cleanse with our Cream Cleanser for the ultimate royal cleansing experience. Our balm uses high quality oils that nourish your skin and do not clog pores.
Will it sting my eyes? Can I use this on my eyes?
While the formula is gentle for medium makeup, we recommend using a separate eye makeup remover for long wear performance makeup. When cleansing the eyes, we recommend using a cloth or cotton round to gently sweep over the eyes to gently break down the makeup.
How much should I use?
To remove light makeup: start with a dime-sized amount of the Lotus Cleansing Balm on dry hands and dry face. Gently massage onto face and eyes to loosen makeup. Add water to emulsify and rinse. Pat dry with a muslin cloth using light pressure to remove any residual makeup. Follow with Crème Cleanser for second cleanse.
To remove long-wear makeup: start with quarter-sized amount of the Lotus Cleansing Balm on dry hands and dry face. Gently massage onto to loosen makeup. Before adding water, use a cotton round to remove any stubborn eye makeup. Next, add water and emulsify, avoiding the eyes as you rinse. Follow with Crème Cleanser for a double cleanse to soften and smooth skin.
For intense eye make-up, using a separate eye makeup remover is recommended.
I have acne prone skin, can I use the cleansing balm?
