CLEANSING & TONING CORRECTLY: WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT & WHAT DO I LOOK FOR?
With all the focus on powerful serums, eye creams and masks, you may be putting little thought into your cleanser and toner – if you even use a toner at all. The truth is, your skin depends on them to look and feel its best. Everything else in your skincare regimen – serums, creams, masks – will work BETTER if Step 1 and 2 is done right. So what to look for?
CLEANSING: KEEPING IT GENTLE IS KEY
Freeing your skin of dirt, pollutants and make-up is crucial because they can irritate skin and block other treatment products from being absorbed properly. At the same time, keeping it gentle is key because stripping can trigger irritation as well and make your skin overly sensitive to active treatment products. Our ever-so-lightly foaming, sulfate-free Rice Facial Cleanser leaves skin feeling clean, ready for the next step, but also soft and supple thanks to a touch of nourishing Candlenut Oil.

EXPECT MORE FROM YOUR TONER!
This is your chance to soothe, refresh, hydrate and balance skin’s pH. Not all toners are created equal, though. Avoid harsh ingredients like alcohol, and instead look for hydrating and antioxidant-rich, soothing ingredients. Our Tamarind Tea Hydrating Toner, while oil-free and alcohol-free, quenches thirsty skin, soothes and smoothes with a combination of Hyaluronic Acid, Green, White & Black Teas, Rice Bran, and Tamarind Seed. The result: Skin is saturated with vital hydration and stays soft, supple throughout the day. You will notice the difference!

Match Made In Cleansing Heaven:
Pair Our Rice Facial Cleanser With Your Favorite Cleansing Brush
Do you love the deep clean and face massage you get from your favorite electric cleansing brush? Next time, pair it with our Rice Facial Cleanser! Since cleansing brushes provide a deeper and more thorough cleanse (including makeup removal,) it’s all the more important that you pair it with a gentle cleanser that won’t strip skin. Refrain from using a scrub together with your brush and stick to no more than 2-3 times per week.
