The importance of a good cleanser in a complete skincare routine
You only get out what you put in – it’s true of many things, but nowhere is it more true than with your skin.
To look and feel your best, you need a skincare routine tailored to your needs. Forget genetics, the power to look great and stay healthy is in your hands, and it doesn’t have to be hard.
Complete skincare vs consistency
There are a million skincare routines out there, ranging from a scrub down with a bar of soap to an elaborate 15 step process. At their core though, most skincare routines boil down to a simple ‘cleanse-exfoliate-protect-moisturize’. However, the steps of your skincare routine aren’t necessarily what you should be focusing on.
You can make your skincare routine as simple or as complex as you like, but the most important aspect is consistency – if you don’t have the energy or time for a longer routine, don’t sweat it. Just do what you can manage with consistency.
Consistency is key for a number of reasons, the most important of which is that skincare isn’t a race. It’s a skincare routine for a reason – it can take 6 weeks for products to take full effect, and your skin is constantly being "removed and replenished", as the superficial layers of skin are constantly replacing themselves. Therefore you need to regularly care for your fresh skin if you’re going to keep looking your best.
Priority #1 – a quality cleanser
Now, regardless of how simple or complex your routine is, you’re going to need a cleanser.
It’s the most fundamental and essential part of any skincare routine – cleansing your skin of dirt, oil, makeup and any pollutants or impurities will keep your pores and skin clear and healthy. With regular use, you’ll look and feel great even if your routine stops there.
With that in mind, it’s important to find a good cleanser - we recommend our Beeautify Gentle Honey Cleanser.
Made from the medicinal jarrah and woodlands banksia honeys unique to the pristine wilderness of Western Australia, this honey-based cleanser is an excellent choice for any skin type.
The main active ingredient, Jarrah honey, has one of the highest antioxidant levels in the world, and possesses ground-breaking antimicrobial power. Its active ingredient, hydrogen peroxide, can even help reduce the severity of acne and skin blemishes. Jarrah honey is also well known for its skin healing properties and is extensively used in medicinal skin therapies.
Unlike many other products, the Gentle Honey Cleanser doesn’t roughly over-exfoliate your skin. Instead, it uses the natural viscosity of smooth honey to gently provide a mild exfoliation for your daily routines, while helping to accelerate cell renewal. Its balanced pH also helps maintain your skin’s acid mantle, helping your complexion glow.
Our cleanser doesn’t stop there – it contains a range of locally sourced organic extracts and natural oils to soothe and nourish your skin. Not only do they provide powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-septic and anti-microbial properties, but they’re also brimming with antioxidants that help protect your skin from environmental damage.
Just as important as what it is in a cleanser, is what is not in a cleanser. The Gentle Honey Cleanser doesn’t contain any sulphates, artificial colours, or synthetic fragrances. It doesn’t even contain artificial preservatives or harsh detergents – the unique self-preserving formulation keeps it fresh, while the gentle foaming action is derived from coconuts.
Best of all, it smells delicious.
Do try to resist the urge to lick it though.
