cleansing_tonicCleansing is the first step in good skin care. Cleansing helps remove dirt, dead skin cells, excess oil, and impurities from skin, helping to prevent clogged pores. However, cleansers must strike a balance between doing an effective job of removing excess oil and impurities while preserving the skin’s delicate condition, keeping the right balance of natural oils and moisturisers.

Washing your face can appear to be cleansing the skin but water doesn’t break down the oils and impurities. By using Cleansing Tonic to do this, these impurities are easily removed.

Using Elena’s award-winning Cleansing Tonic to remove make up before going to sleep helps avoid oils that are normally secreted by the pores being trapped. This in turn can cause a build up of dead skin cells and can even lead to breakouts of spots or acne. The main aim of using a cleansing tonic is to remove accumulated debris from the surface of the skin, therefore enabling it to breathe and stay looking vibrant and healthy.

The ideal cleansing tonic can be found by experimenting with different brands to find what suits your skin type. Elena’s Cleansing Tonic is carefully balanced to suit even the most sensitive of skin types, gently deep cleansing the skin, leaving it feeling soft and refreshed. This provides the ideal foundation for moisturising.

Ingredients used in Elena’s Cleansing Tonic are:

  • Witch hazel, a strong anti-oxidant and astringent, often used as a natural remedy for eczema or psoriasis.
  • Rose water, an ingredient frequently used in cleansers that cleanses the skin, removing dirt, oil and other pollutants from deep inside the skin pores.
  • Seaweed for its anti-fungal, antibacterial properties.
  • Chamomile for its antibacterial properties.
  • Violet for its antiseptic properties.
