Benefits of Simple’s Facial Washes
Cleansing, this step in our skincare routine eliminates dirt, grime, oils, and other impurities from our faces to endow our skin with a fresher look than usual. It maintains the hydration levels of our skin, cleans our pores, and retains and replenishes the moisture in our skin - which is why a face wash from this range is a non-negotiable addition to your repository, and the perfect way to kickstart your everyday skincare ritual. We’re all pursuing that highly-coveted youthful glow fashioned by celebrities, aren’t we? Well, this takes you a step closer to achieving a lit-from-within, flawless glow.
For Dry Skin
The Simple Kind to Skin Moisturising Facial Wash is formulated to tackle the problem of dryness. Free from artificial colours, fragrances, alcohol, and dyes, this product lathers into a soap-free foam enriched with the goodness of pro-vitamin B, which softens the skin, vitamin E, which nourishes the skin and bisabolol, which moisturises the skin. The facial wash leaves out 4 ingredients that sabotage the health of your skin - it steers clear of soap, for instance, that strips the skin of natural oils; harsh chemicals that damage the skin; colours or dyes that disturb the pH level of the skin; and artificial fragrances that irritate the face. Its primary aim is to cleanse the skin of dirt and impurities, rejuvenate, and moisturise organically - and without drying your face out. And since it’s a foam-based cleanser, it’s ideal for sensitive skin.
The Simple Water Boost Micellar Facial Gel Wash Face Wash is perfect for dry and dehydrated skin as well. Enriched with skin-loving minerals as well as plant extracts, this vegan water-gel formulation rehydrates your skin within seconds while cleansing it gently. Ideal for winters, we say!
For Oily Skin
The Simple Kind to Skin Refreshing Facial Wash is perfect for oily, acne-prone skin. Infused with pro-vitamin B as well as vitamin E - just like its moisturising counterpart - along with the goodness of triple purified water. This medley of ingredients strives to hydrate, nourish, and replenish your skin without causing any irritation. Apart from working toward revitalising the skin, this facial wash nourishes, removes dirt, oil, and other impurities. It removes excess oils without stripping off your skin’s natural oils - and leaves the skin feeling fresh. Keeping in mind those with the most sensitive skin, the product leaves out colours and dyes, harsh chemicals, fragrances, and soap in its formulation.
For Spots and Pores
The Daily Skin Detox Purifying Face Wash is your skin’s saviour if you’re struggling with clogged pores and oily skin. This facial wash is laced with the detoxifying properties of thyme, witch hazel, and zinc to remove dirt, makeup, and oils while being gentle on the skin, and strives to reward you with clearer, fresher skin.
How to Use Simple’s Facial Washes
It’s quite simple actually. After cleansing your face, all you have to do is pour a coin-sized portion of the product on your hands, and pat the concoction into your face and neck with gentle upward and outward movements.
To maximise the effectiveness of this product, just wet your face with lukewarm water, and squeeze a dollop of the facewash onto your hands. Work the formula into a lather, and massage your face in circular motions. Once you’re done, rinse your face with lukewarm water, and pat it dry.
Just wet your face, lather a little bit of facial wash in your hands, and apply the resulting foam to your skin. Massage it into the face, and rinse it off thoroughly. You can follow it up with the Daily Skin Detox SOS Clearing Booster for best results.
Lather a small amount in the palm of your hand, and apply the soft, silky concoction to your face. After working it into your skin, rinse it off thoroughly. Post which, you can layer your skin with a Simple moisturiser that you like.
