Cleansing skin twice a day is an important part of a proper skin care routine. Cleanse skin with the right ingredients and lukewarm water to ensure you do not irritate your skin.
One effective cleanser among NV Perricone products is Gentle Cleanser with Olive Oil Polyphenols.
Read on to learn more about this nourishing cleanser and how to correctly cleanse with it.
Why Olive Oil Polyphenols?
In ancient Greece and Rome, olive oil was so popular that they built advanced ships for the sole purpose of transporting olive oil from Greece to trading posts across the Mediterranean. The ancient Romans used olive oil at the Roman baths. They reportedly had beautiful skin thanks to olive oil’s powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
The polyphenols found in olive oil are stable and protective antioxidants that can be effective in improving the general health and appearance of skin. Olive oil is also rich in oleic acid, an emollient, while the essential fatty acids found in olive oil nourish the skin.
With all of these benefits, it is no wonder that olive oil polyphenols are included in Gentle Cleanser’s formulation. Gentle Cleanser also includes another key science important in Perricone skin care: DMAE.
DMAE tightens, tones, and re-contours skin’s appearance.
Cleansing the Right Way
What’s great about Gentle Cleanser is that it doesn’t irritate the skin like cleansers with scrubbing grains can.
Gently massage Gentle Cleanser into damp skin by hand. Abrasive pads and washcloths can disturb the skin and produce age-accelerating inflammation. Rinse with lukewarm water. Cold and hot water can break capillaries.
Be sure to not overwash your facial skin. Cleanse only twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening.
Follow with any Perricone anti-aging treatments and moisturizer.
