Let's have a girl chat about cleansing our skin properly. Having the right products, and using the right technique/tools has always been the focus for many, but one thing we all seem to overlook is how long we cleanse our skin. Think about it, how much time are you really spending on cleansing your skin daily? I'm always on the hunt for new ways to improve my skin, whether it's trying new products or switching up my routine. So, when I came across Nai Roberts-Smith aka the LaBeautyologist, on Twitter, I saw a host of RT's from women raving about a skincare tip she gave them. Per this amazing Esthetician, she stated that cleansing your skin for 60 seconds can and will change the health of your skin. She also challenged her followers to put down their cleansing apparatus and use only their fingers for a deep cleanse. Whhhhaaaaa? No cleansing brush? Wild, I know but I swear, *right hand on Beyoncé's entire discography*, it worked!
I didn't change my facial cleanser, I didn't use the hands of sweet angel babies, it was simply using an entire minute to cleanse my skin thoroughly. The act of using a full minute allows your cleanser to dissolve any sebum blockage in your skin, and with that, your texture and tone will improve. A simple 60 seconds will give you softer skin, reduce redness and with continuous use of this method, you will notice an overall improvement. So now, I challenge all my Nolababes to the #60SecondRule using your favorite Nolaskinsentials facial cleanser.
Acne-Prone skin? Try the #60SecondRule using our Hyaluronic Aloe Cleanser. It’s great for dry, dehydrated skin that suffers from acne, yet needs hydration. It’s a blend of coconut milk, mango butter, hyaluronic acid, and aloe vera. It’s ideal for treating and combatting your acne prone skin.
Thirsty skin? Try the #60SecondRule using The Real You Jelly Cleanser. Created to melt away oil, while still moisturizing your skin, makes this cleanser perfect for dry and sensitive skin. Blended with hyaluronic acid, green tea, and cucumber, this cleanser offers a soothing cleanse and leaves your skin hydrated.
Oily skin? Try the #60SecondRule using our foam cleansers! Let the Glycolic Cleansing Foam or Clarifying Cleansing Foam work its magic on your skin. Both were created to cleanse, exfoliate and eliminate acne-causing factors. These foams will work overtime to flush out any excess sebum and any clogged pores, to leave your skin cleansed and refreshed.
I understand, after a night out with your girls or bae, coming home with a beat face can take some time to cleanse, tone, and moisturize — but sis, we both know how important it is to maintain your skincare routine. Take that extra minute to be kind to your skin, Nolababe style.
**Nola Tip: Massage your favorite Nolaskinsentials Serum, into your gorgeous face for 60 seconds as well to allow your skin to drink in all the benefits.
