What Is the Best Way to Wash Your Face?
You probably don’t pause and think about how important washing your face is, or how much your skin thanks you for it! When you wash your face, you’re literally washing the day away—this simple act is a chance to clear your pores from any free radicals they’ve been exposed to throughout the day, and your pores get a chance to breath and reproduce sebum, or the skin’s natural oil. When asked about the best way to wash your face, we always point back to The Lancer Method, which has three easy steps: Polish, Cleanse, and Nourish.
First, Polish: If you’re wearing makeup, it’s important to take it off, since makeup blocks the pores from receiving any of the benefits of our skin care products if it’s still on. Once you remove your makeup, take a small amount of your exfoliator (or Polish, as we call it around here) and massage it over your face and neck. Using an exfoliator removes dull, dead surface cells and prepares your skin for additional treatments. Our Polish has natural plant enzymes and minerals, like brown sea algae that moisturizes and stimulates collagen production, which is the protein that keeps your skin nice and tight.
Second, Cleanse: Don’t just wash away your exfoliator with only water; rather, find a cleanser that will sweep your skin clear of any exfoliation debris and provide extra pore-cleansing power. Once you’re done exfoliating, apply a small amount of cleanser to your skin and massage it over your face. Our Cleanser is enriched with Sodium PCA, which adjusts skin to its proper pH balance, which is important since makeup and the environment can dry your skin out throughout the day.
Finally, Nourish: Once you rinse off your cleanser, apply a small amount of moisturizer to your face, neck, and eye area. Nourishing your skin allows it to retain its moisture and boosts its oxygen level. This is in part to a unique compound isolated from Nasturtium flowers that increase intercellular diffusion of oxygen, which leads to healthy glowing skin.
These three steps will not only lead to healthier skin, but will promote your skin to act younger, meaning you have the extra benefit of looking younger, too! Plus, The Method is available for multiple skin types and in travel sizes, so you can care for your skin wherever you are. Let’s give three cheers for the three steps that will lead you to putting your best face forward!
