- Gels or Foaming Cleansers: Never apply your cleansing gel directly on a washcloth because it absorbs much of the product resulting in waste. Instead, apply with fingertips directly to damp skin, massage in circular motions, rinse well and give a final wipe with a washcloth.
- Cleansing Lotions: When using a cleansing lotion, always apply it to dry skin. If the skin is wet, it dilutes the cleanser and won’t clean as well. Massage in circular motions, rinse well and give a final wipe with a washcloth.
I suggest using the Renée Rouleau Facial Sponges.
