We know first hand that if a skin routine is complicated, you simply won’t follow it. That’s why we kept things really simple with 4 steps to follow in the morning and again at night. We even marked each product with a 1, 2, 3 or 4 so you know exactly when to use it. If you want to learn more about why each step is important to the overall health of your skin, read on.
Cleanse to remove daily build up of dirt and oil without stripping the skin.
We all exfoliate naturally, shedding millions of dead skin cells daily. But cleansing is still necessary to remove the daily accumulation of dirt and oil. MVO cleansers wash away the grime while keeping the topmost layer of the epidermis—the stratum corneum—intact.
Many other cleansers use harsh surfactants or sudsing agents that actually strip the skin of its environmental protective barrier, exposing it to damage from the elements. And, unlike other cleansers, we never use glycolic acid that can dry and irritate the skin. Instead, we use lactic acid because it increases the water content of the epidermis so it doesn’t dry out.
