The first step in your morning routine is a good cleanser. A balm texture is great for dry skin as it retains the natural moisture while cleansing. A jelly cleanser is ideal for oily or combination skin – it’s very sensitive and won’t change the pH balance of skin very much. Use an oil cleanser if you have blackheads or bad skin texture. The various oils will combat breakouts and dehydration while gently exfoliating. We love giving ourselves face massages with an oil cleanser before rinsing off. 

You absolutely must exfoliate once a week to remove the rough patches and prevent breakouts. It also allows your skincare to absorb into your skin faster.
