Hello peeps! If I asked you what you think is the MOST important part of your skin care regime, what would you say? I bet most of you would say - moisturizing, or protection. Actually, according to many experts, the most important (and basic) part of any skin care regime is CLEANSING. Cleansing not only removes toxins and dirt from your face, it prepares the face for your moisturizer. In this 2-minute tutorial (the first in this series), we give you the heads-up on how to get the perfect cleanse each time - even if you're in a hurry!
Before we dive in to the "how to" of cleansing, just remember the basic purpose of cleansing. It's to get away oil-soluble impurities from your face, before you do anything else, including washing your face. A good cleanser dissolves away external contaminants like makeup, pollution, residues as well as excess sebum (oiliness) from your face without drying it. If you skip the cleansing and head straight to the face wash, you are setting yourself up for a host of problems, including blocked pores, blackheads, acne and oxidation-related problems like dark spots. So remember to cleanse at least once a day - typically end of day.
So there we go - really simple ways to cleanse your face and get it ready for the next big thing. Remember, proper cleansing is the easiest, least expensive way to a bright countenance!
