I want to talk to you about, how to use facial cleansers. As you know cleansing the face morning and night is very important. I know sometimes when you have had a long day, and your tired, you would love to skip the bedtime ritual of cleansing the face, but it really is a must and never should be forgotten to do.
Cleansing the face removes all the dirt and oil that has accumulated throughout the day. Smoke, dust, outside pollutants and perspiration that has settled on the skin and in the pores. Cleansing the face is a essential part of a skin care regiment and should always be practiced everyday.
Facial cleansers make your skin feel clean, smooth and fresh. They should never leave a residue on the skin after washing the cleanser off. They wash away make up and dirt and make your skin feel soft.
There are different types of cleansers on the market and finding out what your skin type is and what works best for you. Being informed and knowing the basics will help you make the right decision, when purchasing a facial cleanser. The purpose of a cleanser is to clean the skin, without drying or irritation.
If your skin is combination or tends to be oily, look for cleansers that have oil-absorbing ingredients. They won’t leave your face feeling like you have a film on it.
If your skin is dry to sensitive look for cleansers that are more moisturizing and gentler to the skin. They have more nourishing ingredients to protect the skin. They can contain vitamins and essential oils that also will not strip the skin and dry it out.
If y our skin tends to be acne prone, look for cleansers that have salicylic acid. This is a beta hydroxy acid use to treat acne, blackheads and skin that is prone to breakouts. It works like an exfoliate and can penetrate the skin follicles It also helps in the prevention of breakouts.
When washing your face with a cleanser, always wash your hands first. This will help to eliminate bacteria and any germs that are on your hands and being transferred to your face, where they can cause a break out.
Splashing your face with lukewarm water will open the pores up to allow the cleanser to go in and do the work of cleansing more deeply.
A small amount of cleanser is usually all that is needed to cleanse the face. Apply the cleanser with circular motions with your hands or you can use a pad or face cloth.
Always rinse the face with cool water. This will close the pores and tighten the skin. Be sure to rinse all of the cleanser off the face, around the hairline and the neck.
When drying your skin, never rub or pull on the skin on the face. This can cause wrinkles, especially around the eye area where the skin is very delicate. Always pat the skin dry.
By following these steps, your skin will be ready to moisturize. The moisturizer will have a better chance to do its work, on a clean and healthy skin.
