- Categories : Beauty Tips

To take care of your face, the first essential step is cleansing your skin. Indeed, your skin needs to be cleansed on a daily basis to keep it fresh and radiant. And contrary to what you might think, just because you don't wear makeup doesn't mean you shouldn't cleanse your skin daily. 

How to find the right cleanser for your skin ?

Throughout the day, the skin suffer from many external aggressions such as pollution, dust, heating and many other impurities. Therefore, it is essential to cleanse your face in the evening to help your skin breathe better during the night. 

To do this, you have to use the right product for your skin type and needs. Our 3 powder face cleansers are enriched with natural active ingredients and composed of 100% natural ingredients. Without any controversial ingredients or sulfate, they are enriched with prebiotic and vegan. What's the innovation ?

5 ways to use our powdered cleansers 

Once you've found the right product for you, it's time to apply it. Here are 5 different ways to use our powder cleansers:

Classic technique: pour a small amount of powder directly into your hand and massage your face

Nothing could be simpler, just shake the bottle well before use, then pour a dose of powder into your hand. Then add water and lather between your hands to obtain a milk. Apply this milk on your face and massage in circular motions to remove all the impurities and cleanse your pores. 

Rinse your face with warm water. Super fast and very effective. No more reason to skip your evening cleansing! 

Cocooning technique: using a reusable cotton pad or a wipe 

You can also use a washable cotton pad or a wipe to cleanse your face. Pour a dose of powder into your hand. Then add few drops of water, lather between your hands and gently apply this cleansing milk to your face. Once your skin is clean, moisten the cotton pad and gently rinse your face with it, starting from the center of your face and working outwards. 

It is important to wash the cotton pad well after use to avoid bacteria proliferation. 

This is the technique used by Margaux, our osteopath. Find her routine right here.

Expert technique: using a brush

For those who prefer to use a brush to apply the product, it is possible! Simply pour a dose of powder into a bowl, add a little water and mix it all together with your brush until it turns into milky texture. Then use your brush to apply it to your face evenly.  Rinse your face with warm water using your hands or a damp cotton pad.

With the brush you can apply the product more evenly on your skin.  

This technique is used by Emmanuelle Capus, our facialist and body expert, who has developed her own massage technique for the face and body: Mindful Massage.

Deep cleansing: using a konjac sponge

You can also use our powder products with a konjac sponge. This natural, biodegradable, vegetable sponge allows you to thoroughly clean and massage the skin.

Start by pouring a dose of powder into your hand. Then add a few drops of water and lather between your hands to obtain a cleansing milk. Apply to your face and gently massage in circular motions with the sponge until your skin is clean and makeup is removed. Then gently rinse your sponge and your face. 

Remember to sanitize your Konjac sponge about once a week by boiling it in a pot of water for a few minutes. 

At Yodi, we adopt this routine when we are looking for deeper but natural and gentle cleansing! 

Special technique for very sensitive skin: avoid using tap water

Your skin may be very sensitive, especially to limestone in tap water. But each problem can be solved. You can use purified water (a piece of vegetable charcoal in tap water will perfectly purify water) or spring water in glass bottles. It's up to you:  

-you can pour a little powder in your hand, add a few drops of spring water and mix it all together to get a cleansing milk and gently apply it on your face. 

-you can add a little powder in a bowl and mix it with spring water before applying it on your face with a brush. 

For rinsing you can use a glove (moistened with spring water or purified water). Your skin will thus be preserved from all the potential aggressions due to the limestone.

Neutralize limestone effects  

After showering or washing your face, your skin may feel tight or get red. This phenomenon can be due to limestone from your home water. The water limestone deposits on your epidermis, then crystallizes in the form of small needles that create an aggressive and very drying film on your skin.

In addition, hard water will also weaken your scalp. It can cause dandruff, itching and redness. 

Unfortunately, no specific care can durably remedy these problems as long as the water used is loaded with limestone. Water is considered hard when it is highly charged with calcium and magnesium ions, which are commonly known as limestone. The water hardness varies according to the soil geology in your region. Here is a map of France that shows the water hardness according to regions.

Which solutions ?  

The first solution is to filter tap water. To do this, it is possible to install a water softener at the end: the water softener is the most common system that removes limestone in tap water. Water is softened before it comes into contact with your skin or body. 

You can also use a carafe filter: if your only concern is the taste or limestone particles in your water, using a carafe filter can help you without using more expensive and extremely polluting bottled water.

Finally, it is possible to use active carbon called "Binchotan", a proven and highly developed filtration method used in Japan for centuries to purify water. It is a very economical and ecological way to naturally filter tap water.

Chemically, activated carbon is very effective as a filter. 

 

Filtered water is softened and has a neutral pH. It is also enriched with trace elements and minerals, calcium, magnesium, iron and potassium, which are removed by carbon. It is free of any bad taste you can find in tap water. It is purer and richer.

Now you're ready for a super gentle cleansing!

0 waste goal 

At Yodi, we want to offer you products that contain as little plastic as possible. Our bottles are made of aluminum, a durable material that can be recycled over and over again. 

In fact, aluminum can be reprocessed and reformed over and over again without losing its quality. Using recycled aluminum is much better because it preserves raw materials and saves 95% of energy.

It combines several qualities, such as lightness, mechanical strength and corrosion resistance, ductility (can be worked and deformed at low temperature without breaking), recyclability, and waterproofness, etc.

We are particularly involved in avoiding plastic, even recycled plastic, since it cannot be recycled indefinitely, it loses quality. 

Aluminum is ideal for cosmetics. Thanks to its lightness you can take it everywhere with you. It's elegant, perfect to decorate your bathroom shelf; its conservation properties are ideal to keep the powder dry. And we put a natural eco-friendly varnish inside the bottles to avoid any transfer between our powders and the aluminum!

The service cap is made of PP (recyclable) and can be upcycled thanks to our partner CEP-Recycling. The label is made of wood cellulose (not plastic), so it is compostable and biodegradable! Once your product is finished, you can send us an e-mail (to hello@yodibeauty.com) so that we can send you a return envelope to send us back your empty bottles. All you have to do is mail it back to us! It's free for you.

Some figures 

Every year, nearly 174 million shampoo bottles and 113 million facial care products are sold in France. The production, use and treatment of these products have a heavy environmental impact.

With Yodi, a 40g bottle of shampoo replaces a classic shampoo bottle (250mL) and a 30g facial cleanser replaces a classic cleanser (150mL). We could therefore save up to 80% of water compared to conventional cosmetics, i.e. nearly 35 million liters of water per year with our shampoos and 13 million liters of water with our cleansers. 

Ideal for sports, ideal for vacations, our powder skin care products will go everywhere with you !
