Facial Series: Why Is Cleansing Important?
Cleansing the skin is necessary to remove dirt, pollution, makeup and other impurities that build up on the skin. Some of nature’s best cleansers must contain oil because the skin makes and has a natural layer of oil called sebum. A cleanser must be able to mix with the skin’s natural oils to help remove unwanted residue from the face. This may seem difficult to believe, but natural oils that mimic the skin’s natural sebum are a wonderful way to cleanse the skin. This is why most of our cleansers contain natural oils such as jojoba, coconut, sesame or olive.
Golden Path Alchemy carries some cleansers that are oil-free for those who feel an oil-free cleanser is necessary. The main purpose of holistic skin care is to bring balance back to the skin. Often overuse of harsh, alcohol-laden cleansers, toners and creams cause the skin to produce too much oil in an effort to replenish the moisture that it loses due to these unhealthy commercial products. Follow cleansing with our toner and facial herbal serum, then finish your beauty ritual with one of our facial oil serums or moisturizers.
