These 3 steps are for whenever you want to give your pores a deep cleanse. They are especially helpful if you have large pores that have become clogged.
Steaming is the best way to unclog pores and deeply cleanse them. It’s easy and works well. Add a couple of drops of your favorite essential oil into a bowl of very hot water (boil the water and let it sit for a couple of minutes). Place a small towel over your face and lean over the bowl so the steam can do its work. Steam for at least 5 minutes. If you have clogged pores near your nose, it can take 15 minutes to get the full benefit.
Next step is to exfoliate. Use a high-mineral salt exfoliant to get deep into the pores and cleanse them. Exfoliant Supérieure contains finely-milled French sea salt plus willow bark extract that has all the benefits of ß-hydroxy acid without the sensitivity drawbacks. It provides two options. Either you can exfoliate for a minute and go to the next step, or, after you have massaged the exfoliant onto your face, you can leave it on for 20 minutes to get the most from the willow bark. Either way, you can boost the effects with a Clairosonic. You can read more about the best ways to exfoliate here: https://www.gaelleorganic.com/blog/exfoliating/
After exfoliating, rinse your face with Toner Supérieure, an alcohol-free, astringent toner. You can keep it in the refrigerator to increase its pore-minimizing effect. Dab the toner onto your face with a cotton ball and let it dry. The toner can become part of your daily routine. It will help prevent breakouts and keep your complexion clear.
