after i finished a few bottles of the s.w. basics cleanser, i decided i needed something a little more heavy duty. i rotate between three different cleansers now; it seems like a lot, but they each serve very specific purposes in my medicine cabinet. i mainly use the ren gentle cleansing milk every night; my skin is dry, so it can use as much nourishment as it can get. i don't wear a ton of makeup (more about that routine coming in a later post)!
most mornings i just use water, but for mornings that i feel a little grimy (sometimes i sweat when i sleep, what?), i use indie lee's rosehip cleanser. first of all, indie lee and her team are among the nicest women i've ever met, so many pluses for her products. but second of all, it's effective. it gently cleanses, but also helps brighten the skin and the rosehip oil has lots of anti-aging properties.
so there! cleansing! it takes about 30 days for your skin to see the full benefits of new products, so be patient with new products. and, obviously, if you have an allergic reaction to a product, stop using it! but if you encounter small breakouts in the first 30 days, stick with it! they will clear up, and your skin will be happier than ever.
