Your skin and its ecosystem may need some time to adjust to your new regimen, so try to be patient and consistent. Some of our best testimonials have come from customers who initially experienced an adjustment period. Don’t forget, true healing can take time. Here are some tips to get you through:
CRUDE was developed as a system using minimal ingredients to reduce potential irritants to the skin. We recommend using CRUDE alone for at least a month to get a good idea of how it works with your skin.
Experiment with Cleanse frequency. Try cleansing once a day instead of twice (or vice versa). Let your skintuition guide you to the right routine.
Don’t forget to wash your Pull Cloths after each use! You don’t want to put old makeup and bacteria back on your skin. Wash with a gentle, environmentally-friendly detergent and hang dry instead of using the dryer to keep them super soft and absorbent.
Make sure to Detox. It’s a crucial part of the CRUDE oil-cleansing system, especially when you’re just starting out. Most modern skincare routines include harsh cleansers and exfoliants and when making the switch to our much less abrasive oil-cleanser, it can often take the skin some time to adjust. Many of our customers find that they need to Detox less over time as their skin adjusts to this more natural way of cleansing.
“I had the WORST clogged, acne ridden, damaged skin. I started using CRUDE a year ago, and I saw significant change after about six months of using it. At first, I didn't see a huge difference, but my skin felt more clear. It took a long time to get my acne-filled skin healthy looking again, and now I can see significant radiance, even tone, and overall my skin feels better and has a better texture. I love CRUDE!" - Lauren
