There may not be a fountain of youth, but the skincare we use and how we treat ourselves can prevent or even reverse aging. Your body needs the right nutrients to fight off damage, and your skin is no different. Nutrients help the cells replicate and have more energy.
The key to getting healthy looking skin is a skincare routine.
Many skin care products contain harsh chemicals. When choosing cleansers, moisturizers or makeup, research the ingredients in them the best you can to confirm that they're safe. It is imperative to limit exposure to toxic chemicals because the skin absorbs them, stockpile them between the layers of our skin, and transport most of them into our bloodstream.
Here are the first 2 steps in having a flawless, beautiful skin:
First step: Cleansers
1. Cleansing Oil
After cleansing, your skin should never feel stripped or dry! With so many skincare products on the market, it can be hard to find a good natural facial cleanser that actually does the trick! Is your skin dry or dehydrated? Oily or acne prone? What if I told you that each of these problems could be solved by simply cleansing your face with oils. Oil cleansing may sound strange but it’s actually the perfect method to restore balance back to your skin!
How does oil cleansing work?
Over washing of the skin is a huge problem, particularly if you have oily skin. You may think that by scrubbing all of the oils from your face, you are thoroughly cleansing. However, what you are actually doing is forcing the skin to produce even more oils to compensate, which can cause breakouts and dry patches! That’s where oil cleansing comes in.
Our Oil cleansing works on the principle that oil dissolves oil. When Vooqo cleansing oil is massaged into the skin, the ‘good’ oils work to dissolve any ‘bad’ oils that build up on the skin’s surface and cause problems but also have the power to cleanse deep inside between the first and second layer of skin where infections and dirt build up causing acne and rosacea. The oily impurities from the surface include dirt, grime, makeup and oxidized sebum (which cause blackheads).
The oil cleanser binds to these impurities, which are then drawn out and washed away with a cotton cloth.
Which natural oil cleansers do we recommend?
Well, of course, ours which is formulated with a long list of essential oils with great skin benefits. These include highly moisturizing, soothing and antibacterial Camelia Oil, Sea Buckthorn, Grape, and Lemon Extracts, BHA fruit acids and more. This cleanser also smells lemony fresh and is so easy to use! Simply apply a warm cotton cloth over your face, then apply 4-5 pumps onto the skin, massage onto the face and then wipe it away. Your skin will be left clean with no oily or dry feel.
2. Scrub Face Exfoliator
While cleansing oil is clearly beneficial, exfoliating on a regular basis -- once or twice a week can improve the results of your skin care routine and help rejuvenate your skin. Whether you have dry, normal, oily or sensitive skin, exfoliation can bring new life to your complexion.
The process of exfoliation rids the body of any dry, dull skin by removing dead skin cells from the surface of the epidermis. By removing these dead cells, exfoliation can help keep pores from becoming clogged and leave skin with a refreshed and clean feeling.
What's the benefit to clean and clear pores?
Clogged pores can result in blackheads and acne. Furthermore, when pores are clogged, they appear larger. So, if you're worried about the size of your pores, although you can't reduce their actual size (genetics is the biggest factor in pore size), you can help diminish their appearance by keeping them clog-free.
In addition to the immediate visual benefits of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells speeds up the skin renewal process, allowing smoother, healthier skin cells to take their place. Not only will this help with fine lines and wrinkles, but it will help to ease discoloration as well.
Which natural exfoliator do we recommend?
Well, of course, ours which is formulated to exfoliate chemical and mechanical with the help of fruit enzymes and round rice beads. Vooqo Exfoliator also includes highly moisturizing clays such as Moroccan, Bentonite, Rice Bran Oil and more beneficial organic ingredients.
This Exfoliator also smells chocolate fresh and is so easy to use! Simply apply all over your face as a mask and let it sit for 10-15 minutes then wash it away. Your skin will be left clean with no oily or dry feel.
Now that you know that cleansing routine can lead to visibly brighter and healthier-looking skin in a matter of days, you need to know these 2 products are a complete cleansing routine. There is no need for makeup removers, face wash products, toners, scrubs, masks, or micellar waters.
