~ Rinsing with only water will not clean the skin alone, as there is nothing to emulsify oils and pollutants on the skin. Cleansing is like brushing your teeth: morning and evening!
~ Hand and body soap is a NO!! They will completely dehydrate and irritate the skin because their pH is too high for our face. Our skins pH is slightly acidic (around 5). Soaps are highly alkaline (around 8 or 9, possibly higher).
~ When you have a dry, dehydrated or sensitive skin, use as LITTLE water as possible on your skin. Our skins pH is happiest between 4.5 and 6 (5.5 being talked about as the ideal). Tap water can be 6.5 – 8 pH!! Rinsing can serve to cause MORE dryness or dehydration. In Ireland we generally have hard water due to our natural limestone landscape and this effects our tap water.
~ In Ireland, we looooove to use hot water at the sink and in the shower, and again, it’s not ideal for the skin, particularly Irish skin! It will put pressure on already delicate capillaries and can add to high colouring, acne, rosacea, anything already red and inflamed.
~ When using cotton wool with cleanser, wet the pad, squeeze out and then run gently over the skin. The fibres of dry cotton can irritate plus you will have a more effective removal with damp cotton as it glides easily over the skin.
~ If you use a sponge or face cloth to cleanse your skin, ALWAYS wash it off with soap afterwards to remove bacteria and residues before to reuse it again.
