The Facial Wash Dilemma…
Soap and water…the simple solution to washing off dirt. If it’s good for the body, why not the face? Because it can do more harm than good in the long run…
THE QUEST FOR SQUEAKY CLEAN
In the quest for the “squeaky clean” sensation, we tend to over-wash, over-scrub, and over dry our faces. Because the facial skin has fewer layers than the skin in most other areas, it is more susceptible to damage by harsh products.
The fallacy of the “squeaky clean” feel is that you strip away the acid mantle, weakening the skin’s first line of defense. A diligent daily routine is all you really need to keep your skin properly cleansed.
THE CLEANSING RITUAL
The market is filled with an abundance of cleansers, making it a challenge to find the one that best suits your skin. In general, a cleanser is a cleanser by the mere ability of the product to clean the skin. However, some cleansers are better than others depending on skin type and condition.
GEL-BASED CLEANSERS tend to be more suitable for oily or acne-prone, combination skin because they are free of oil or emollients, as they remove daily residue and leave the skin feeling fresh.
CREAM-BASED CLEANSERS help restore moisture in the epidermis for dry skin types as they cleanse. Sensitive skin may also prefer their soothing sensation.
Skin Care Tips
