Do I still need to continue my weekly exfoliation routine?
It’s true that cleansing grains gently exfoliates the dead skin cells so you may notice less and less skin build up. Having said that, it may still be beneficial to add an exfoliant 1x weekly to your routine. This can be a more targeted approach for specific treatments in addition to the gentle care your cleansing grains provide.
Why does my skin feel dry after the shower even with cleansing grains?
It could be due to a few reasons - long showers, hot water, pre-existing dry skin. In case of oily skin, the grains may overwork to remove the excess oil. In any case, always apply moisturizer on damp skin, both after face cleaning or a shower. Over time you will notice the skin feeling softer and not dry.
Do I need to moisturize even though it contains humectants?
Humectants work to attract moisture from the environment to your skin. The moisturizer will work to create a protective skin barrier and trap the moisture inside. Hence you need a product that will do both for you, for nourished and hydrated skin.
Can I use this on sensitive skin?
Yes! It makes cleansing grains such a versatile product to have. The natural ingredients make it safe to use on all skin types. However it’s best to NOT use on overly sensitive or broken skin. If you’re dealing with a breakout, best to wait until it’s healed up, too, before using cleansing grains.
Can I use this daily?
We recommend using our cleansing grains 3x every week on alternate days for the full body. The natural ingredients cleanse and gently exfoliate without irritating the skin or affecting the water-oil balance. So even if you feel the need to use it more often, go ahead! However if you notice any discomfort, it’s your skin telling you to slow down. Listen to it!
What should be my basic bath routine with cleansing grains?
Cleansing grains are easy to use, they work for all skin types in all seasons and are gender-neutral. For adults, we recommend cleansing grains in the shower followed by our facial toner & oil for cleansing-toning-moisturizing routine. For children, skip the toner. Apply the oil on damp skin to lock in moisture for longer.
