Why you should be using a cleansing balm

Few steps are as important as the cleanse, which sets the tone for the rest of your skincare routine. Every healthy skincare routine begins with properly cleansing the skin whether that be a gel, foam, scrub or oil. While there are so many cleansers and types on the market, it can be difficult to find the perfect one. In addition, as temperatures rise our skincare regimen also must undergo a seasonal shift. While SPFs and lighter moisturizers seem to take priority, one summer skincare essential that should not be overlooked is the cleansing balm. A cleansing balm is a gentle and effective solution that easily melts away makeup, dirt, SPF, oil and impurities from the day. The award winning Cerabalm has become a cult-favorite multi-purpose cleansing balm for all skin types and ages. 


What is a Cleansing Balm?

A cleansing balm typically comes in solid form and undergoes a transformation when applied to the skin. It turns into an oil upon massaging and then emulsifies into a milky texture when water is introduced. Cleansing balms, like Cerabalm, are suitable for all skin types but often favored by those with dry or sensitive skin due to its gentle nature on the skin barrier. A cleansing balm is typically used as a first cleanse in the evening since it serves as an effective makeup remover and any other impurities that lay on the surface of the skin. 


Benefits of a Cleansing Balm

Adding a cleansing balm to your skincare arsenal will keep your skin clean, refreshed and balanced. Additional benefits include:

  • Calming stressed skin
  • Hydration boost
  • Deep cleansing without stripping the skin
  • Effortless makeup removal
  • Can be used on all skin types 


How to use Cerabalm 

  • Application: Using the spatula, scoop out a pea-sized amount of the cleansing balm and gently warm the product in your hands
  • Melting: As you massage the balm onto dry skin, the heat from your skin begins to gently melt the balm into an oil-like consistency. This oil effectively breaks down makeup, sunscreen, dirt and other impurities
  • Dissolving: Since oil attracts to oil, the balm pulls excess oil on the skin including sebum and oil present in makeup and sunscreen to the skin surface 
  • Emulsification: Add water to the oil on your skin to start the emulsification process. This will turn it into a milky consistency and will lift away the now dissolved impurities from the skin.
  • Exfoliate: Finish your first cleanse with a damp dual wash cloth to remove the balm completely
