A dailyskin care regime is one of the most important parts of maintaining your skin's health. The following are valuable steps in good skin care for both men and women.
Step #1 - Cleansing
Cleansing should be done first thing in the morning and last thing at night to be most effective. This removes surface impurities, make-up, and excess skin oils, helping to prevent pores from becomming clogged. It is important to use gentle skin balancing cleansers suitable for your skin type. Avoid harsh soaps and other products containing alkalines and chemicals that can dry your skin and wash away natural essential oils. All of EcoSentials soaps are chemical free and all Natural. Quality cleansers may contain such ingredients as clay. This helps to gently exfolliate and cleanse in one step.
How you cleanse your skin:
Moisten your face with lukewarm water and cleanser.
Gently spread the product over your skin, using soft, upward circular movements for about a minute.
Never scrub or use downward motions on your face as this may cause premature wrinkles or sagging, especially around the eyes. Rinse off the cleanser using lukewarm water and gently pat dry your face.

Step #2 - Toning
The second step to give you the very best skin is to use a toner for your skin type. Toning sould be be done
after cleansing - before moisturizing. Toners remove any left-over residue from cleansers and help refine pores and prevent build-up of dead skin cells. In these busy times, many women often leave this step out, however it is just as important as the cleansing or moisturizing of your skin. If you want healthy, vibrant skin with a minimum of lines and wrinkles, don't skip this step. Quality Toners
will minimize the appearance of pores, protect the skin from loss of moisture, add nutrients and restore the skins' pH balance. A good toner will remove surface oils and debris which may be helpful for oily or acne-prone skin.
How you tone your skin:
Always apply the toner to a cleansed face. Avoid the eye area. The correct way to apply a toner is with a cotton cosmetic pad. Saturate the cotton pad and gently pat the toner over your face and neck area. Most people, however, prefer to mist on a toner. It is a good idea to mist your face and neck with your eyes closed, about 6 inches away. Never rub your skin when applying a toner.
We have the following Toners prepared for you.

This refreshing and moisturizing toner is loaded with anti-oxidants, nutrients from Vitamin A, C, E, Linoleic Acid and others to help regenerate the skin. Rosehip oil is high in GLA which helps reduce the signs of aging and combats the drying effects of the sun.
Clarify Toner - for sensitized, oily, rosacea, ec-zema, or acne skin. Infused with soothing, anti-inflammatory White Willow Bark Extract and heal-ing Organic Tamanu Oil. Good for Teens and Tweens troubled skin.
Step #3 - Moisturizing
The third step of your daily skin care regime should be done morning and night. Your skin needs to be moisturized to restore moisture loss from the drying effects of the elements; wind, sun, central heating, cold and polution to name a few. A good moisturiser protects your skin, provides nutrients and prevents moisture loss, thereby slowing down the aging process. A quality moisturizer will maintain the acid- mantle of your skin keeping the ph in balance.
Moisturizing is an essential part of facial care for both men and women.
How you moisturize your skin:
Use after cleansing and toning. Apply moisturizer to damp skin. Put a sufficient amount of moisturizer into the palm of your clean hands. Warm it up and soften it gently with a circling motion between your hands before applying to your face. This will make it more spreadable helping to prevent a too-heavy application in any one area. Apply the moisturizer (excluding the eye area) using an upward stroking motion to your face and neck using your fingers, ensuring that every part of the skin has been covered. Lightly massage the lotion in until it is completely absorbed into the skin. Use your ring and index finger tips to apply moisturizer to the sensitive skin around your eyes. Dabbing them while gently walking the finget tips around the eyes. Never drag on the delicate muscles around the eyes. This may cause premature wrinkles, sagging and dark circles.
Hot Tip: If you want amazing results, let the moisturizer absorb for about a minute then re-apply moisturizer again.
