Leah's Current Cleansing Rituals

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. 

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.

1. Wash hands. Then apply three pumps of Citrus and Citrine Toning Mist to you palm with 1-2 pumps of Pamplemousse Cleanser

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.

First Cleanse

1. Scoop a small dollop of Bless Balm into your palm, followed by 2-3 pumps of Pamplemousse

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.

Second Cleanse (5-6x per week)

1. Follow up with Kalima Cleansing Powder, activated with Citrus and Citrine Toning Mist. This helps deeply cleanse the pores and brighten the skin.

2. Simply apply this magic mixture to dry skin and allow to fully dry before rinsing clean.

Second Cleanse (1-2x per week)

1. Blend Honey Love Exfoliator with one pump of Pamplemousse before applying to your skin. This combo is magic! 

2. Spend a good minute or so gently exfoliating the skin with Honey Love, then let her sit for a few minutes before rinsing clean.
