Deep Clean Your Routine: 5 Simple Steps for Clearer Skin

When it comes to balancing blemishes, consistency is key, as is avoiding overly drying acne mainstays, such as Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid which can cause irritation to skin. Instead, opt for gentle ingredients that protect the skin’s natural barrier for maximum recovery. This comprehensive five step routine will have you on your way to clearer skin in no time.

STEP 1

Keep it Clean


Everything begins with a cleanse. Cleansing removes traces of makeup, pollution and blemish causing bacteria. The antidote to surface buildup, Ocean Cleansing Mudd busts blemishes with two types of Organic Seaweeds and purifying Tea Tree and Peppermint oils. Use as your daily face wash for active blemishes or as a weekly treatment under shower steam for a deeper clean. Best of all? This cleanser fights blemishes without stripping skin of the vital moisture it needs.



STEP 2

Tone


After cleansing, mist face with a toner. Toners prep skin to absorb the active ingredients of the other products in your routine. Sea Minerals Mist soothes surface redness caused by blemishes and fortifies the skin barrier with three mineral-rich Organic Seaweeds. This pore shrinking toning mist keeps skin looking clear, calm and hydrated. Pro tip: Stash in the fridge and spritz for an instant, anytime refresh.



STEP 3

Treat


Fast track your skin’s recovery with a spot treatment.  Essential Corrective Complex tackles blemishes and prevents future ones. Thyme, Tea Tree, Rosemary and Juniper oils shrink spots and soothe redness. Bonus: This potent elixir doubles as an all over facial oil to keep skin hydrated and comfortable all year long.



STEP 4

Moisturize


Next up? Seal everything in with moisture. The temptation to combat breakouts by drying out skin can actually exacerbate oil production and lead to new blemishes.  Blemish Balm is a lightweight moisturizer that hydrates with Jojoba oil, while twelve plant actives deeply purify skin. This gentle formula maintains a dewy complexion without clogging pores.



STEP 5

Detox


Detoxifying, calming clay masks can boost your skincare routine when used a few times a week. Packed with good-for-you ingredients like French Clay, Organic Seaweed and Canadian Willow Bark (a natural alternative to Salicylic Acid),  Red Algae Mask fights breakouts, fast. Perfect for spot treating blemishes or for an all over detox, this mask does it all – without irritating side effects.
