Cleansing your skin with the right product in the right way is an important first step on the path to skin health. Excessive cleansing or using a product that's too harsh will disrupt the natural microbiome of the skin resulting in a ripple effect of a vast range of unwanted skin conditions. On the other hand, not cleansing thoroughly enough can result in the skin becoming congested, stagnant, and dull. My intention here was to formulate a product that effectively cleanses the skin while supporting the integrity of its natural functions — working with nature knowing the ingredients won't compromise our health but instead work to elevate the vibrancy of the skin and life force of our entire being. The ‘press + hold + breathe’ ritual deeply cleanses the skin while encouraging attentive touch and movement within the layers of the skin. Get the cleansing step right and everything else will fall into place.
Botanical-11 Oil Cleanse is ideal for:
Although it sounds counterintuitive to use oils if you have an oily skin type, the plant oils chosen actually work to unblock congested pores and rebalance the skin.
Starting with dry hands and a dry face, pour the Botanical-11 Oil Cleanse into the palm of your hand using enough to allow the hands to glide effortlessly over the face and neck.
Pressing both palms together, bring to the face holding cupped hands over the nose. Pause for a moment to take a few deep breaths — inhaling deeply through the nose then allowing the exhale to flow effortlessly out again through the nose.
Spend between 1-2 minutes massaging the cleanser over your skin focusing extra attention on any areas of congestion or muscle tension to thoroughly clean the skin while encouraging microcirculation below the surface. To remove, take a warm, damp facial compress cloth and press against your face, hold for a few moments, taking a few deep breaths once again before wiping away any residue. Rinse the compress cloth with warm water and repeat the 'press + hold + breathe' ritual two more times.
If removing makeup or sunscreen cleanse the skin twice — a faster first cleanse to dissolve all traces of anything on the surface on the skin. Then spending more time with the second cleanse (as outlined above) to work at a deeper level.
Follow with the Rosa Geranium Facial Mist, your choice of facial serum No. 03 — calm, No. 04 — hydrate, No. 05 — renew, (or something bespoke) and / or Anahata Facial Balm Concentrate. A bespoke Botanical-11 Oil Cleanse is also available.
