Why a Good Cleanser Is All Your Skin Needs
Posted on 24 May 2017
Everyone is always talking about the need to cleanse our skin. We all know that it’s important, but do we really know why? Let’s find out. Every skin type deserves to feel refreshed and renewed. When we love our skin enough to cleanse it, our skin will love us back. Washing our faces is not only invigorating but helps to remove dirt, oil, grime, and makeup. So what? Say goodbye to clogged pores, uneven skin tone, breakouts, and acne. Say hello to a brighter complexion, a radiant glow, and overall younger-looking skin.
Daily cleansing will help to remove all of the impurities that keep us from looking fresh. This allows the products that we really want to penetrate our skin to work properly. Regular cleansing also helps to manage pH levels which enables water retention. Boosting skin’s hydration in simple terms means that we won’t look as rough, wrinkled, or aged. If we want to maintain clear skin, keep away dryness, redness, and irritation, along with oil and grease - we need to practice proper skin cleansing!
Now that we understand the benefits of cleansing our skin let’s ask the next question. How often should we wash? The simple answer: it depends. It seems that the jury is still out on exactly how often to cleanse. Some say morning and night while others claim just once a day. What we can all agree on is that over-washing will lead to lack of moisture and irritation. This leaves us to common sense. Wash excessively oily skin morning and night, and always wash after a workout.
Any good cleanser will utilize a variety of key ingredients to achieve a healthy, beautiful looking complexion. Exfoliating elements like willow bark and jojoba beads are essential to unclogging pores and removing dead skin. Powerful ingredients like natural plant oils and kojic acid are crucial to flawlessly moisturized skin. Struggling with breakouts? Consider giving our Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Cleanser a go. The invigorating wash is a special one that should be used 2-3 times per week for normal, dry or sensitive skin and 4-5 times for acne prone or oily skin. A more gentle alternative is one that utilizes Vitamin C, which is necessary for collagen production and good for everyday use. It is up to us to know our skin type and choose a cleanser that will be the best match. Just don’t forget - there's a reason why we cleanse!
