I can tell women a lot more about protein powders than I can about setting and facial powders. If it wasn’t for my Bare Minerals and MAC staples, I’m not sure what I would really know. But, I’m slowly working on that. I’m a woman who wears a lot of sweat on my face, but taking care of my skin is very important to me. Healthy skin only helps a good face beat look even better!

Like so many active women out there, we are often on-the-go from the gym to our careers, or heading out to conquer our days, so how can we keep our skin healthy with ease and without having to pack a million products in our bags?

The answer – CLEANSE by Lauren Napier.

I came across this amazing woman and her product on Instagram. Ms. Napier was kind enough to introduce her cleansing wipes to the fitness community through Black Fitness Today. She is a celebrity make-up artist, whose work has been seen in the most recognizable publications and media outlets, with clients ranging from Drake to Colin Powell.

Here’s a quick Q & A:

BFT: Tell us about your career and how your CLEANSE brand was born.
LN: When I look back at my career, I ask “Where did the time go?” It’s been 15 years in this business. I started at the MAC counter just before the MAC Cosmetics bubble burst. My experience evolved and I started working on photoshoots, then movies. In the midst of my career as a makeup artist I developed a passion for healthy skin and skincare products – then CLEANSE by LAUREN NAPIER was born.


BFT: What has been one of your most memorable moments to date?
LN: I have had the fortune of having a very fun filled and exciting career. One of my favorite experience was on a Vogue Magazine photoshoot. The shoot was for British Vogue and we were shooting a British Oscar Nominee in a trailer park in Malibu. Not just any trailer park, but a trailer park, in Malibu with million dollar trailers parked beach side! After the 12hour day was all said and done, the entire film crew ate pizza and had beer on the beach after the shoot. A huge part of my job is about taking advantage and exploring all of these hidden treasures and locations that I would never even know existed – I treasure sharing those experiences with all of the fun people who I meet. 

BFT: Who should use CLEANSE by Lauren Napier? 

LN: CLEANSE by LAUREN NAPIER is perfect for the fitness enthusiast. Removing makeup prior to a workout can help maintain clear skin while gently and effectively cleansing the skin’s surface. Using CLEANSE by LAUREN NAPIER after a workout helps to reduce acne caused by bacteria found in perspiration. CLEANSE is lightweight and slides neatly into your gym or day bag. 

BFT: Why is it important to maintain clear, healthy skin, especially while living an active lifestyle?

LN: It is important to maintain healthy skin and a healthy bod. Our skin is our largest living organ and is a representation of our overall health, it goes hand in hand. 

BFT: For anyone trying to maintain or improve the condition of their skin, what’s a simple routine one can begin today?

LN: The most simple way to improve your skin condition is to avoid touching your face. Oils and bacteria transfer from hands to the face easily congesting the skin creating clogged pores and acne. Avoid touching your face and CLEANSE!

 

I was excited to try CLEANSE and this product did not disappoint. I believe it’s a must have and here’s why:

1. I never took cleansing wipes that serious, because although they all seem to take the dirt away, I’m always left with a dry face. I have extremely sensitive skin yet the wipes left my face soft and and I didn’t have to follow up with any moisturizer.

2. These wipes are excellent for make-up removal as well. Everything comes off.

3. Luxury skin care can also be convenient. These wipes are packaged individually and take-up minimal space.
