Throughout the day and over time natural oils, dirt and pollution build up on your outer skin layer. These impurities can block pores and lead to inflammation, dull skin tone or blemishes. By washing your face with a face cleanser twice daily you help decrease these impurities, unclog pores and start the path to healthy, beautiful skin. Make sure to follow with a face toner to refresh, re-hydrate, and prep skin for your serums and moisturizers.
Ideally, you should wash your face twice a day, at morning and at night. When you wash your face with sink water, you are generally washing it with hard water which can cause dryness and a dull skin tone. By sticking to washing your face twice daily you are minimizing the contact with hard water and the chance of skin dryness. If you sweat after a workout or in the sun, reach for a Micellar Water or Micellar Face Wipes to remove the impurities without the hard water.
It is important to wash your face in the morning and evening with a face cleanser. Even if you wash your face before bed, as you are tossing and turning, your face comes in contact with your hair oils that remain on your pillowcase. Wash your face in the morning to cleanse your skin of these impurities and create a clear canvas for your morning skin care routine.
There is a reason that you were taught to always wash your face before bedtime. When you sleep your skin is working hard to repair itself against aggressors and it is therefore important to go to sleep with a clean face. Throughout the day natural oils, dirt and pollution build up on your skin which can lead to clogged pores. By using a face cleanser at night you are decreasing these impurities and allowing your skin to work while you sleep.
When choosing a face cleanser, make sure that you choose the right cleanser for your skin type. If you have dry skin reach for a comforting cream or milky cleanser formula. If your skin tends to be more oily or acne prone you can add a salicylic acid cleanser to your daily routine in order to remove dirt and impurities. If you have combination skin you can use a gel cleanser that will remove impurities without being too harsh on skin.
Look for a face cleanser that naturally exfoliates skin, such as a salicylic acid cleanser to unclog pores. Alternate this exfoliating cleanser with a sensitive skin cleanser such as a micellar water to ensure that you are not over-drying your skin.
Micellar water has been a French skin care staple for years as its no-rinse solution allows you to avoid the effects of hard water on skin. Tiny oil molecules called micelles are suspended in a soft water solution for a gentle way to cleanse.
