The perfect face cleanser to include in your skincare routine
Whiteheads. We all get them from time to time - some of us seem to get them all the time... so how can your skincare routine treat whiteheads? Are there any products specifically suited to tackling those pesky blemishes? Absolutely! The best way to treat whiteheads is through a quality facial cleanser rich in salicylic acid - not scrubbing your face raw.
What is salicylic acid?
You’ve probably heard of salicylic acid but you might not know what it is. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid - a family of acids more commonly known as BHAs. Salicylic acid is an organic compound used to combat inflammation and acne and is found in various over-the-counter and skincare products. It’s also often lauded for its anti-ageing properties.
What are the benefits of salicylic acid in a face cleanser?
Incorporating salicylic acid into your skincare routine can be an effective way to treat mild acne such as blackheads and whiteheads. When the hair follicles in your skin (also known as pores) get clogged with oil, dirt and dead skin cells, blemishes can appear. Blackheads are the clogged pores that are still open while whiteheads are clogged pores that have closed.
A face cleanser rich in salicylic acid will penetrate your skin, dissolve dead skin cells blocking your pores and hey presto - whiteheads be gone (with regular use, naturally). When salicylic acid is part of your skincare routine as a facial cleanser, you can feel confident those dead skin cells are washed down the drain. Use Divine Duo Be Mine, our facial cleanser bursting with salicylic acid goodness, to banish whiteheads within 6 to 8 weeks.

What other ingredients should I look for in a natural face cleanser?
As with all products in your skincare routine, choosing a facial cleanser with only natural ingredients is best. Natural oils (such as coconut, almond, avocado and jojoba oil) and flower extracts (like chamomile, jasmine or wild-harvested rose water) soothe, hydrate and protect the skin.
Why are wild-harvested rose water and jojoba oil important in a face cleanser?
Wild-harvested rose water has a calming and soothing effect on the skin which is particularly important when using a facial cleanser to tackle inflammation and blemishes. Suitable for dry, sensitive and inflamed skin, nourishing cosmetic products containing rose will be packed with vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. The antioxidants in rose help to strengthen skin cells and keep the skin’s moisture barrier strong and its astringent properties also make it an excellent combatant of acne, redness and inflammation. That’s a powerful flowerhouse!
Organic jojoba oil mimics the skin’s natural oils and can help to restore the pH balance in your skin. By softening your complexion and locking in moisture, jojoba oil is thought to also support the skin’s natural ageing process and helps the skin look plump and youthful. Don’t be mistaken that including jojoba oil into your skincare routine as a facial cleanser will block up your pores. It won’t. Instead, it will soothe inflammation and keep pesky blemishes at bay.
So if you’re looking for a natural organic facial cleanser to banish whiteheads, add Divine Duo Be Mine to your skincare routine.
