Clean, clear, beautiful skin is something that most of us desire and strive to attain. Women with beautiful glowing skin aren’t just lucky. They are also very disciplined about caring for it from the inside AND the outside, knowing that healthy skin is achieved via good nutrition, effective skin care, and various lifestyle habits.
One of the foundations for beautiful skin is daily cleansing. Not only does cleansing help to dissolve everyday dirt, grime, make-up and excess sebum, it also helps to unblock clogged pores. However, not all cleansers are created equal, and some can do more harm than good, by disrupting the delicate moisture and pH balance of your skin, resulting in redness, irritation, dehydration and premature ageing of the skin.
That’s why at Be Naturallyou we only stock cleansers that support the natural function of your skin, leaving it clean and clear, whilst also hydrated, soft and nourished.
Tip: for effective results, cleanse twice. The first application removes dirt, grime, and make-up, whilst the second application helps to nourish the skin.
Tip: Cleansing is a beautiful opportunity to take a quiet moment in the day to nurture your skin and be grateful for the beauty that you be. If you catch yourself judging your complexion or self, please remember to STOP, and turn those thoughts 180 degrees. What if what you see as flaws are what others perceive as beauty? There is no single definition of ‘beauty’. By you truly being you, is what makes you beautiful. Gift your self to the world and be the unique gift of beauty that the world needs right now.
Following are six cleansers we can’t live without:

What they say: An oil-based cleanser containing a blend of organic and biodynamic essential oils, plant extracts as well as spagyrik tinctures of gems and crystals, for skin that tends towards dehydration. The blend of sesame, avocado and spelt oils help in the removal of make-up and impurities for a gentle yet effective cleanse, whilst helping to maintain the delicate moisture balance of the skin.

AEOS Gentle Cleansing Lotion Pink may assist in encouraging and replenishing these pink qualities.

Our brandand product selection is based on thorough research, based on 16+ years of industry experience. If we are not 100% convinced that an ingredient is safe, we won’t stock the product. ‘Natural’ and ‘organic’ products and online shops are becoming more prevalent these days. Whilst this is great, it also is rather confusing, as many ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ brands out there contain toxic and harmful ingredients that sound ‘natural’ or ‘naturally-derived’ but are indeed irritating to the skin and internal organs. If you are unsure about any ingredient, product or brand, please don’t hesitate to get in touch in the comment box below.
