How to Cleanse Your Skin According to Your Skin Type

Cleansing seems like a simple step — possibly the most straightforward one in any given skin-care routine. Wash, rinse, pat, and you’re done…right? Not exactly. Think of cleansing as the first step in treating your skin, because it is. These days, cleansers aren’t just there to remove grime and makeup. They’re now formulated to exfoliate, hydrate, calm, nourish, and everything in between — while, yes, still removing dirt, oil, sweat, and makeup. Because of that, the cleansing step in your routine may not look the same every time you do it. Depending on your skin type and how it feels that day, it may require a different approach. Here, how to customize your cleanse depending on the day.

Your Everyday Cleanse

Even if skin looks fine — think no breakouts, redness, or major dry patches — that doesn’t mean you can wash and call it a day. Rather, the One Plus One Method ensures that you’re getting every last bit of grime out of your pores. The One Plus One Method, for the uninitiated, entails washing for one full minute of massaging in an oil cleanser, followed by one full minute of massaging a foaming cleanser into skin.

In practice, that means cleansing first with the an oil-based cleanser like the Papaya Sorbet Enzyme Cleansing Balm, which melts away oil-soluble materials with a blend of papaya seed, camellia japonica seed, and apricot kernel oils, and following it with the Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser, which lathers up with hydrating suds (sans sulfates, of course).

Use this as the basis for cleansing no matter what’s happening on your skin.

When Your Skin Feels Dry or Dehydrated

Before we get into this, a little reminder: Dry skin and dehydrated skin are not the same thing. Dry skin is a skin type that lacks oil production — it just doesn’t make enough sebum. Dehydration, on the other hand, is a temporary condition that means skin lacks water in its outermost layers. (The common signs are flaking, ashiness, or redness, as well as more exaggerated lines and wrinkles.)

Either way, cleanse at night using the One Plus One Method, and then rinse with lukewarm water. Hot water can actually strip skin of its essential moisture, drying it out and potentially causing inflammation. Instead, opt for room-temperature water when you rinse to make sure moisture stays where it should be. Then, in the morning, rinse your skin (which can produce debris as a result of overnight metabolic processes and simultaneously loses moisture overnight) with the oil-based cleanser, which brightens and re-hydrates skin.

When Your Skin Is Super-Oily

The problem with oily skin is that well-intentioned people tend to fight it with harsh cleansers that strip oil. The problem here is that you then kick off a cycle of removing too much oil, which in turn spurs skin to produce more oil — so it’s like a self-fulfilling prophecy of greasiness. In short: not a great option! However, an oil-based cleanser can absorb oil from your skin, and without starting that cycle to boot.

So, use the One Plus One Method in the evenings to remove makeup. Then, in the morning, wash off any oil that collected overnight with a foaming cleanser. You can even create a mini clarifying mask by leaving the Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser on for five to 10 minutes in the morning, which brightens and smoothes skin.

When Your Skin Is Breaking Out

While you may be tempted to scrub a breakout away, resist the temptation and instead treat it gently.  In the evenings, do the double cleanse using the One Plus One Method. Then, instead of drying your skin with your everyday face towel, simply pat your damp face with clean hands. That’s because unless you’re doing laundry 24/7 or have a vast collection of clean washcloths, you may be reusing the same one over and over — and a damp towel is a breeding ground for bacteria.

If you’re acne-prone, you already may know that bacteria are a major contributor (the offending microbe is called P. Acnes for a reason), so it’s best to minimize repeat contact with any germs. (Here’s a primer on how to #DitchtheTowel, if you want to learn how to do the patting method without making a mess in your bathroom.) In the A.M., wash any oil, product residue, and dirt away with the foaming cleanser. As with oily skin, you can use the Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser as a mask for a fast exfoliation and brightening.

When Skin Just Has a Lot Going on

Dealing with a combination-skin situation? You’ve come to the right place. Just like the multi-masking technique before it (i.e. the concept of applying different face masks to separate areas of the face, as needed), this consists of using cleansers depending on where to need them. Use a nourishing, oil-based cleanser on dry areas, like the cheeks, and save a foaming wash for your T-zone and chin (or anywhere else that looks oily).

Then, in the morning, take stock of your skin. Does it seem more dry? Or does it look extra-greasy? Take it as your cue to use either the oil-based cleanser if it’s dry, or the foaming cleanser as a mask to clarify skin and cut oiliness. We’re all about caring for skin day by day, and this is no exception

The Answers to All of Your Papaya Sorbet Enzyme Cleansing Balm Questions

In case you missed it, we just launched our first every cleansing balm! Here are some questions you may have about the new Papaya Sorbet Enzyme Cleansing Balm, answered below.

Why should I use a cleansing balm?

Cleansing balms are great for anyone who wears makeup regularly, or for those with skin prone to dryness. This formula cleanses without stripping, simultaneously moisturizing skin. Our cleansing balm is formulated to work for all skin types and gives an instant, hydrated glow, even if your skin isn’t dry.

How do the different forms of papaya benefit skin?

The 3 forms of papaya (papaya enzymes, papaya seed oil, papaya extract) are all rich in vitamins A, C, E, and fatty acids, but each form has different concentrations. They all help to smooth, brighten, moisturize, and soothe skin but the oil has higher concentrations of fatty acids while the enzyme actively smooths.

Is this suitable for acne prone and oily skin even though it’s oil-based? 

Yes! The formula will remove stubborn makeup, SPF, and buildup and gently exfoliate the top layer of skin which can help to prevent clogged pores and breakouts.

Since it exfoliates, is it safe for everyday (and 2x a day) use?

Yes, it is safe. The formula has many soothing ingredients, papaya enzymes are a gentle smoothing ingredient, and it is tested to be safe for sensitive skin and eyes. 

What is the best place to keep this cleanser?

The formula should be stored in a dry, cool environment. Always close the cap fully to keep the formula from drying out. Do not keep the formula in the shower as this is a damp, wet environment. Avoid getting water into the jar.

Can this be used alone, or does it need to be followed with a second cleanser?

Yes, it can be used alone! If you want a more thorough cleanse to remove makeup and SPF, we recommend double cleansing with the Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser.

Can I use this when I’m not wearing makeup or in the morning?

Definitely! Since the formula’s benefits go beyond makeup removal, it’s great to use AM and PM. The formula easily removes oil and skincare from the night before. It also preps skin for the day’s skincare and makeup routine by smoothing and hydrating.

Does this remove waterproof makeup, mascara, and SPF?

Yes! If you want a more thorough cleanse, we recommend double cleansing with Blueberry Cleanser and using the 1+1 cleansing method.

How does the formula effectively remove makeup without PEGs (polyethylene glycol)?

PEGs are used as effective ingredients for makeup removal but can cause sensitivity when consistently used, especially for sensitive skin. Because the skin on your face  and around your eyes is delicate, we chose to formulate without any PEGs. Instead, we used sorbitan oleate, a solubilizer extracted from olive and other oils work together to effectively remove the makeup.

How is the formula fragrance-free but still has a fruity scent?

Papaya Sorbet Enzyme Cleansing Balm does not have fragrance (synthetic or natural) but has a scent derived from naturally fragrant extracts. Naturally fragrant extracts are plant-based extracts that inherently possess a potent, pleasant scent. The blueberry extract and strawberry extract in the formula naturally smell great which is what gives the formula that fruity scent.

Where does the color come from?

The natural color comes from a small amount of non-irritating bell pepper extract.

Where was the formula made?

The formula is made in Korea.

Will this sting or burn if it gets into my eyes?

No, the formula has been clinically tested to be safe for sensitive skin and eyes. 

How long should I massage the formula around my eye area to remove stubborn makeup? Is there a specific cleansing technique for this?

We recommend the 1+1 method. Multiple layers of skincare, makeup, everyday pollution, oil, and dirt require more than one step of cleansing to be fully removed. Double cleansing with the 1+1 method (where each step is 1 full minute) is a great practice to achieve hydrated, bouncy, and truly clean skin. 

Do I use this on dry or damp skin? Will it remove makeup the same either way?

It’s best to apply this to dry skin to more effectively break down makeup. Apply to a dry face and massage into the skin to stimulate circulation and to allow the natural oils in the formula to latch on to dirt and grime. Then, splash your face with water and the formula will emulsify and turn from a balm to a milky oil.

What’s unique about papaya enzymes in comparison to pineapple enzymes?
Enzymes are a type of protein that allow a reaction to take place. Some enzymes can be used to dissolve proteins to help exfoliate the skin and get rid of dead skin cells and while some of their actions are similar, different enzymes are found in different fruits. Papaya enzymes are specifically called “papain”, while pineapple enzymes are called “bromelain”. Papain  helps to dissolve and remove dead skin cells, improving skin tone and texture. It may also help with wound healing, reduce inflammation and have antibacterial properties. Bromelain, an enzyme found in pineapple, contains cysteine proteases and is considered particularly helpful for wound healing as well as for bruising.

Can I use the cleansing balm in the shower? Is it as effective?

Yes! Be sure to tightly close the jar and remove it from shower after usage. We recommend storing in a cool, dry spot.

Why does this cleanser leave a glow?

The papaya enzyme gently sloughs away dead skin cells and brightens while the nourishing oils create a healthy, hydrated look.

Is it non-comedogenic or non-acnegenic?

Enzymes are great for acne-prone skin since they resurface the skin, getting rid of the dead skin cells and prevent pores from getting clogged. While the formula is not certified non-comedogenic or non-acnegenic, we use lightweight oils that are suitable for all skin types.

What’s the difference between this cleanser and the Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser? Doesn’t Blueberry remove makeup and smooth it too?

Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser is a water-soluble, foaming cleanser with AHA while the balm is oil-soluble with enzymes. 

What’s the difference between enzymes and acids?

Acids can exfoliate dead skin cells and living skin cells, whereas enzymes are proteins that digest protein bonds between dead skin cells to gently exfoliate the skin. Acids can also affect the pH of the skin and the type of acid and the concentration determines the depth of exfoliation that can occur with an acid. Some acids, like BHA (beta hydroxy acids), are oil-soluble and can penetrate deeply to help to clear out clogged pores. While both acids and enzymes are considered chemical exfoliants, enzymes break down protein bonds to help eliminate dead skin and do not rely on acids or other granules. While enzymes can be used on all skin types, it is especially good for those with sensitive skin or those just starting with exfoliation.

Can I leave it in the fridge for an extra cooling effect?

Yes, this won’t affect the formula’s effectiveness and can create a soothing sensation.

Will this leave a filmy residue on my face after I wash it off?

It will not leave an oily, greasy residue, or alternatively strip skin of moisture. Instead, your skin will feel fresh, smooth, and moisturized.

Can I use enzymes and acids together in my routine?

Yes! If the acid products are very potent, we recommend to patch test or gradually introduce new products into your routine.

Can I use it to remove Watermelon Glow or Avocado Sleeping Masks after cleansing with this?

Yes, you can use this cleanser to remove makeup, skin care, and SPF. For removing our face masks, we recommend using a water-based cleanser like Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser.

If I lose the spatula that comes with the product, should I be dipping my fingers directly into the tub? Is that hygienic? Will the formula be affected if there’s water residue left in the tub?

We recommend using a spatula with all jar products. If you have another clean spatula, that works just as well! If you use your fingers, it is best to wash your hands and dry them thoroughly to make sure the formula remains hygienic. 

Can this packaging be recycled?

Every part of this packaging is recyclable. The glass jar, the inner lid, and the entire carton can be recycled curbside. The plastic cap and spatula can be recycled through our Terracycle program. Please clean the leftover product out of the jar before recycling!

5 Reasons to Add Blueberries To Your Skincare Routine

They may be small, but in the fruit world, blueberries are some of the biggest badasses of the bunch. Each tiny berry is packed with a powerful cocktail of vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants to help ward off everything from high cholesterol and blood pressure to cardiovascular disease and cancer. In fact, studies have shown that blueberries contain one of the highest antioxidant levels of all fruits. And their perks aren’t just limited to internal health: They also boast serious skin-boosting capabilities, making them a no-brainer when it comes to looking and feeling your best. Here’s the scoop on why you should be working them into your daily beauty rituals for a healthier body and better skin.

They help you achieve glow-getter status

Blueberries are more than just a tasty snack: When applied topically, your skin reaps the brightening benefits, says Rachel Nazarian, M.D. of Schweiger Dermatology Group in NYC. “Thanks to vitamins C and E, which naturally help remove dead surface cells and stimulate new ones, skin looks smoother and brighter.” As a result the wonder fruit is now finding its way into high-tech skincare formulations like the Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser ($34), which is equal parts makeup remover, exfoliator, and cleanser. Packed with a mix of antioxidant-rich blueberry extract, dead skin cell-sloughing AHAs, and moisture-boosting hyaluronic acid, the bouncy jelly exfoliates tired, dull skin and infuses it with so much moisture, you’ll swear it’s a serum.

They even out your complexion

“Vitamins C and E also help minimize sunspots and uneven pigmentation by removing surface skin cells, which cause discoloration,” says Dr. Nazarian. Take advantage of that brightening ability with the Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser: Slather on a generous layer as a five-minute mask for an instant pick-me-up.

They plump you up

Well, your skin to be exact. In addition to all that vitamin C and E, “blueberries also contain a healthy dose of vitamin A, which stimulates the creation of more collagen and elastin,” says Dr. Nazarian. Why is that so important? Because they’re the foundations of youthful skin—the more collagen and elastin you have, the tighter and more supple your complexion will be.

They wage war on wrinkles

Blueberries are naturally rich in anti-inflammatory properties and a particularly potent type of antioxidant called anthocyanin. Together they strengthen new collagen formation and help prevent cell-damaging free radicals produced by sun exposure and pollution from causing wrinkles, skin aging, and all-round cloudy skin, says Dr. Nazarian. In other words: “These vitamins act as a shield against daily damage to skin,” she says.

They’re not just good enough to eat

Munching on these little superfoods has healthy benefits all around (stronger heart! better digestion! lower blood sugar!), but you can also use their mojo to the max by applying them topically, too. Dr. Nazarian’s tip: In a blender, whip up a cup of Greek yogurt with a handful of blueberries and a teaspoon of honey. Not only does this make a sweet, nutritious snack, but it’s also an effective face mask. After 10 minutes, your skin will soak up the high vitamin content of the blueberries, while the “yogurt acts as a chemical exfoliant, smoothing skin naturally,” says Dr. Nazarian. And the honey? That’s a humectant, which means it’s super hydrating. Now, that’s food for thought.

The Beauty Thread: Revive Lockdown Locks With Three Vintage Styles

For this month’s The Beauty Thread, our Social Media Manager Maria is talking us through how to breathe new life into lockdown hair, with three easy vintage-inspired styles that can be achieved in minutes.

I’m a frequent salon-goer and always get giddy at thought of my next visit, as my hairdresser always comes with fresh ideas for colours and cuts. However, four months in and the roots are here to stay, and even though I’m sure my hair is thanking me for the dyeing hiatus, I’m left a little uninspired. LiB’s Hair Week has me feeling more excited though, and I’ve been experimenting with styling again. I’m going to show you three vintage-inspired hairstyles that are easy to achieve and give the hair a fresh uplift.

STYLE ONE: HALO UPDO

WHAT YOU’LL NEED: 

The halo updo is perfect if you only have a limited amount of time to style the hair and you’re looking for something elegant. I love how it gives off vibes that you’ve painstakingly put it together: the ease of this can be our little secret!

1. First things first, give the hair a gentle brush through – I use my trusty Tangle Angel compact brush for this. 

2. Lay out your bandana, before folding it in half diagonally so it forms a triangle. From there, fold (or roll) the bandana from the wide end to the triangular tip, so that when you tie it, it creates a halo. 

3. Tie the bandana to your head, making sure all of your hair sits underneath the bandana.

beauty-thread-halo

4.  Starting from the front of your hair, carefully loop your locks around the bandana and tuck it in behind the scarf, pinning shorter hairs in place.

5.  Tuck, pin and repeat until you’ve fixed all the hair in place! Spray liberally with hairspray for a look that lasts.

beauty-thread-halo-2

STYLE TWO: EASY 20s FAUX PIN CURLS

WHAT YOU’LL NEED: 

  • Lots of bobby pins and salon/hair curl pins (optional)
  • Hair gel (and a lot of it) and hairspray 

Pin curls are one of the most notoriously hard hairstyles to master. They take time and patience…and skill too. During my quest to create 20s pin curls, I actually cheated and decided to simply curl the front, leaving the rest in a bun and now it’s become my signature slicked-back look! Here’s how I achieve it: 

1. First, you’ll need to section your hair off. Leave a small piece at the front on each side (these will be used to create your curls) and the rest will be gathered into a bun. 

2. Comb through the back section of your hair, applying copious amounts of gel and keep the hair taught so you create a nice tight bun, securing it with your hairband. 

3. Now to tackle the front of the hair. Wet the hair slightly, and comb through a large amount of gel (be generous with it!).

pin-curls-beuaty-thread

4. Then using your comb, start at the roots and drag the hair downwards to create the peak of your curl. If you have salon clips or hair curl clips, this is where these come in handy. Add pins to support the curls and hold them in place (use bobby pins if you don’t have these!) and create a sleek trough with your fingers by moulding the hair and clipping in place. Repeat down the side of your head, and if you have any more hair left over, tuck it behind your ear and add it to your sleek bun.

5.Repeat on the other side of the head, and don’t worry about symmetry with the waves, I think the more unique they look, the better.

6. To ensure the curls keep their shape as they dry, I like to wrap them in a bandana to protect them: you can even sleep overnight with this to let them set, or if you’re tight on time, simply wait until the curls are dry, then add hairspray for a stronger set before removing your pins. 

 7. Add desired hair accessories and you’re ready to rock your 20s look!

beauty-thread-pin-curls-2

STYLE THREE: 80s SPAGHETTI CURLS

WHAT YOU’LL NEED: 

80s hair is making a comeback in a big way this year, and one of my favourite ways to hide my roots and give my hair some real volume is with fun spaghetti curls. Here’s how to get the look: 

1. When applying any heat to the hair, it’s really important to grab your heat defence spray and apply that first. Then section your hair with clips or hairbands, (however you like to do things!) 

2. The key to this is to only curl really small amounts of hair, concentrating on creating consistent, tight curls with your chopstick wand.

3. Once you’ve curled your hair, spritz with hairspray, and add your favourite hair accessories!

Summer Faves and Raves: Skin Care and Makeup From Honest Beauty

Got some thoughts on the latest makeup and skin care from Honest Beauty. Here are some things I’ve been using and loving…

Cat Eye Kit – Mascara & Eyeliner

This one comes with 1) a dual-ended mascara with a primer on one side and a black lengthening mascara on the other, and 2) a fine-tipped black liquid liner with a flexible felt tip. The primer and mascara combo stretches and lifts lashes for a natural-looking fringe that feels lightweight and doesn’t smudge. As for the liner…it’s SO GOOD. It’s long lasting, deeply pigmented (no blue undertones) and extremely precise. I’ve sweated and cried with it on, and it doesn’t move. Surprisingly though, it’s still easy to remove at the end of the day.
