Cleansing is my favorite part my skincare ritual — and the one I like to take my time with. There is something so healing about washing away all the stress, worries and at the end of the day! Aside from its soothing benefits, cleansing is also a crucial foundation for your skincare routine, because it preps your skin for all the yummy products you’ll be applying afterwards. Here is my personal morning and evening cleanse ritual, which I do every single day.
Leah's Current Cleansing Rituals
The AM Cleanse
This ritual has made a huge difference to the look and feel of my skin and it is a truly joyous way to start the day.
2. Emulsify this blend between your palms and massage into dry skin.
3. Let sit for a few minutes while you make some coffee or cuddle your cat and allow the natural fruit enzymes and gentle AHAs to brighten and exfoliate your skin. Rinse well with cool water.
The PM Cleanse
This is where I do the double cleanse — no exceptions, no matter how tired I am. You can read our blog about Double Cleansing to learn why it’s so important! My first cleanse is always the same, but I like to mix it up with my second cleanse during the week. Both AM and PM, I always end by rinsing with cool water — the alternation between warm and cool water helps to boost circulation and really liven up the skin.
2. Emulsify the blend and massage thoroughly onto dry skin. I like to spend a good amount of time (at least a minute) really massaging my face — including the eye area, neck and decollaté. Rinse well with warm water.
