Perhaps it was an adolescence spent using astringent pads and other abrasive cleansers that led me to associate the adage “no pain, no gain” to facial care. If I didn’t feel my skin tightening and pores shrinking in horror with each application of harsh cleansers, I figured they must not be working. After recently trying Mama Mio’s Clean Slate, a new high protein facial cleansing system, I have changed my way of thinking. Apparently, facial cleansers don’t have to leave you feeling like you have literally had the life-or at least a day’s worth of living-sucked out of you.
With a list of natural ingredients that includes aloe vera juice, eco-certified coconut-derived cleansers and moisturizing omegas, without all those severe chemicals found in soap-based cleansers, it’s no surprise that Clean Slate leaves your skin feeling naturally refreshed and clean rather than tight and stripped.
The Clean Slate regimen also incorporates some facial fitness, which is detailed in the included booklet. Don’t worry, you won’t need to tack on extra time at the gym-just an extra 30 seconds in the morning and again at night for some facial stress relieving stretches. The Scream, a morning exercise, boosts circulation and prepares your face for the daily grind. Meanwhile, The Lioness will calm and relax your face at the end of the day and-even better-it may help prevent you from grinding your teeth at night (something I’m sure my dentist will appreciate).
