Can the Cleanser be used to remove eye makeup?

The cleanser has some amazing exfoliating properties that give skin that great glow!  That being said, it may be slightly too much for the eye area, but you are welcome to try it and see if there is any irritation.  Some people do use it as a light eye makeup remover and have no problem.  I just err on the side of caution due to the papaya enzymes, and without knowing the sensitivity of your skin, it would be hard to gauge.

Is the Cleanser safe for sensitive skin?

Thank you for writing with your question! So the cleanser is a little tricky, it would be best to try a sample and see how your skin reacts.  On one hand it could be the perfect cleanser (mild exfoliant) for a sensitive skin type because that type of person can’t use manual scrubs or anything too active.  So the cleanser does have some actives but they are fairly mild and it just would be hard to completely tell how your skin would react.  Worst case the skin would turn pink/red, but you wouldn’t have any lingering side effects so it’s a matter of how comfortable you feel with that potentially happening. It’s funny because I’m pregnant and before I didn’t have any reaction to the cleanser but now I turn a little pink and I can feel some activity.  I actually love this though as it reminds me how it’s doing good things and eating away bacteria and killing dead skin.  So with that in mind it’s all relative to how sensitive and how bad the rosacea might be.  When in doubt, try a sample at home first and see how it feels.

What are the benefits of Eye Serum?

The eye serum is amazing. It is fairly lightweight so it is great on all skin types. The sugar beet helps to circulate the blood flow minimizing dark circles and the alfalfa is soothing and calming for the delicate eye area. The rhodiola root extract helps to strengthen and reduce puffiness or inflammation.

Which products should I use at night?

Nighttime is an excellent time to apply product since we are indoors with little exposure to pollution or UV rays and it will stay on the skin up to eight hours without interruption. While all skin types should use the Kahina cleanser, the oily skin could follow with the Argan Oil and/or the lotion while the normal to dry could follow with the the lotion and for added hydration apply the serum on top. All skin types can use the eye serum to help combat fine lines and boost antioxidants in the skin.

I have acne prone skin. Can I use the serum?

If you have acne prone skin you may want to stick with the lotion or Argan Oil instead of the serum. Although there are many healing and soothing benefits to the serum that would help your acne, the carrotseed oil that is in the serum is probably too heavy and is better suited to drier skin. The heavier an oil is, the less likely it is to penetrate the skin, therefore leaving the surface of the skin emollient. If acne prone, this oil can be too much and can exacerbate the situation. Both the lotion and the Argan Oil are lightweight and absorb really well. For acne prone skin I would recommend using the lotion during the day and the Argan Oil at night.

Are Kahina products safe for children?

The Kahina serum and Argan Oil are both soothing and healing and would be beneficial for a child however all the other products may be a little too active and most importantly not formulated with them in mind. I would say Kahina products are safe for a child although I wouldn’t say they are best suited for them. There are some active regenerating ingredients that help turn cells over for aging skin and I think it could be slightly irritating to a young child if used regularly. Children’s skin is ideal in that has a built in system that regenerates skin and turns the cells over very quickly (hence that scab on their knee is better in only days). Adults need an extra hand in stimulating the process.

Is there anything I can use on my neck area?

The neck definitely gets neglected in our home care routines. Therefore, it is best to get in the habit of using your facial products all the way down the neck, maybe even on your décolleté once in awhile. The skin on the neck can get dry and show fine lines, so it will greatly improve the texture if you exfoliate and hydrate that area regularly. Using Kahina Facial Cleanser to loosen dead skin and following with Kahina Serum is a perfect combination that will achieve a smoother, softer neck.

What can I do about fine lines and wrinkles?

There are certainly a number of things you can do to help soften the lines you already have, as well as numerous things you can do to prevent lines from showing up. First and foremost you need to protect yourself from the sun. The sun has harmful rays that break down our collagen and elastin, which in turn causes the wrinkles. Aside from sunscreen, vitamin C is a great anti-oxidant that helps to strengthen the skin and fight free radicals that break down our collagen. Vitamin C is found in the Kahina Eye Serum and will help combat those crows’ feet we all dread.

It’s also important to exfoliate. By exfoliating we are polishing the skin and eliminating the dead skin buildup that makes the wrinkle appear worse than it is. As we age our skin cells don’t turn over as quickly as they once did, so it is important to manually encourage the process. The Kahina Cleanser has willow bark and lactic acid, both gentle and natural exfoliating agents.


I have oily skin. Which product should I use?

I would highly recommend the Kahina Facial Cleanser, the Kahina Lotion and the Kahina 100% Organic Argan Oil. Kahina Cleanser has honey and willow bark, which are both anti-bacterial as well as papaya and lactic to help gently exfoliate without being too abrasive on an active breakout. The Kahina Lotion is lightweight, hydrating without any lingering residue. Lastly the Kahina Argan Oil, this will help heal and nourish sensitive breakouts without clogging to the pores.

Will argan oil help my eczema?

Eczema varies in severity and can range from just mild itching and redness to skin so dry it is cracked, oozing and very sensitive. Most people initially treat the problem with the traditional medication of hydrocortisone cream, however this builds up toxins in the body and loses it efficacy over time.

Eczema needs hydration and also needs calming to soothe the inflammation and redness. Argan Oil provides relief to both of these symptoms as well as providing tons of anti-oxidants to help heal and prevent the eczema from returning. In addition to the great benefits of the Argan oil it’s important to look at your diet and to keep your immunity strong for the greatest chances of overcoming the symptoms of eczema.
