Cleansing Your Face

You should always take off all of your makeup before you go to sleep. Cleansing oils are one of the quickest and most painless way to remove all traces of makeup. After you remove your makeup with a cleansing oil, (without wetting the face first) use a gentle cleansing cream/soap (Gathered From the Garden has some wonderful ones!). This will remove any residue the cleansing oil leaves behind. Double cleansing is crucial to maintaining great skin.
When I first heard about double cleansing I was a little skeptical. Using an oil to clean my face sounded heavy. With some research, I learned that oil makes an excellent cleanser because it cleans gently without stripping your skin of its vital natural protective layer. Because oil attracts oil, excess oil is gently lifted off of the skin, along with dirt and other impurities. Japanese and Korean women use cleansing oils to remove makeup—even waterproof mascara. Ever notice how beautiful their skin is? The oils Gathered uses are VERY light including jojoba oil which isn’t really an oil at all.
After cleansing, follow up with a toner and a good moisturizer. Gathered carries both of these too.
