I believe there are two approaches to beautiful, healthy, radiant skin. The first is a holistic approach where you are mindful of your stress load, water intake, the food you eat, especially sugar, and being mindful to make sure you get a good night's sleep. There is evidence that skin cells regenerate faster at night - during sleep.
The second approach to beautiful skin, which I think is most important - is how and with what you cleanse your skin. Regular, daily skin-care is essential, and the cleansing stage is the most important.
Right after I heard about the OCM (oil cleansing method), I went to work creating Luna. I knew that shifting to this gentle, intoxicating natural plant oil cleanser was the best thing I could do for my skin. And, I believe Luna is the best thing you can do for your skin too. I promise you that, no matter what skin type you have, Luna will leave your skin soft & plump, not dry or tight, but feeling nourished. Each bottle of Luna comes with our free 100% bamboo cotton face cloth.
Packed with anti-bacterial and anti-aging properties, Luna is gentle, nourishing, a bit intoxicating, and our oil blend helps to protect your skin's acid mantle. I love it. My skin loves it, and so many others love Luna too.
Why Use The Oil Cleansing Method
Oil is the only ingredient that dissolves and removes layers of makeup. The ‘like dissolves like’ principle pertains to the plant-based oils. Oils bind to oil and gently lift off the dirty oils on your skin without clogging your pores.
Double Cleanse - Luna First and Luna Again or Goat Milk Face Bar Cleansers
Your first cleanse in the evening is Luna, your oil cleanse ( remember "like attracts like" and oil is the only ingredient that dissolves and removes layers of makeup and the pollutants from the days). Then cleanse again with either Luna or one of our moisturizing Goat Milk Face Bar Cleansers. I tend to switch back and forth between Canyon Pink Clay + Citrus or Activated Bamboo Charcoal + Rosemary.
DIRECTIONS: On dry skin, apply 4-5 pumps in the palm of your hand and then massage gently into your skin. Take a minute and give your face a gentle massage to stimulate the blood flow. Allow all the aromatic magic of Luna to soak into your skin. Then, use your warm, wet soft Bamboo Face Cloth included with Luna, a warm, soft face cloth and press it gently into your skin, sweeping upward until your face is cleansed.
Luna is so good because of all the natural plant oils it contains. Oils such as Tamanu oil, composed of phospholipids + glycolipids, which protect the skin's moisture (lipid) barrier. I added our farm’s botanical blend of Calendula oil flower infusion along with Camellia oil - one of the best-kept secrets of skincare. Camellia oil protects the skin against external environmental elements, reduces the appearance of mature skin, and gives a refreshed look to the complexion. Of course, Luna is layered with other nourishing ingredients like Ylang Ylang, Lavender, Frankincense, and Jasmine.
