This is a question a lot of people ask themselves on a regular basis. It is easy to forget or choose not to do the twice-daily facial cleanse. Many people feel it takes too long or that “skipping it this time won’t make much difference”. But that is where they are mistaken.
Failing to cleanse is exactly what often leads to clogged pores, pimples and blackheads, or even outbreaks of acne and enlarged pores. To maintain or improve the skin’s freshness, glow, elasticity and clarity, good cleansing routines are vital.
Every day, our skin is bombarded by damaging environmental factors. Sunlight, pollution, makeup and an accumulation of dead skin cells can all cause skin blemishes. To prevent this, and avoid premature signs of aging, good skincare routines morning and night are essential. During the night, our bodies work to get rid of waste products, partly through perspiration. We also rest our heads on pillows that may be covered in makeup residue, bacteria and dust mites. To avoid layering makeup on top of this the next morning, and blocking your pores even more, a good cleanser is a vital ingredient in an effective skincare routine.
Take account of your skin’s condition
Have you ever found that your skin is sometimes extra dry in the T-zone, or that your cheeks appear shiny with excess oil? These are typical signs that your skin is being affected by environmental factors, including changes in the climate. During the transition from one season to the next, it is not unusual for the skin to reflect these changes. That is why it is important to tailor your skincare routines to the state your skin is in – not simply use the “same old stuff” all the time. If your skin is dry, you should choose products that add plenty of moisture, while oily skin may need oil-absorbing products. Since the various areas of your face may have different needs, it is not surprising that multimasking has become an extremely popular trend. Multimasking means applying different masks with different properties to different areas of the face at the same time. In this way, you can add more moisture to your dry forehead, while you remove blackheads from your nose and exfoliate your chin to eliminate surplus skin and oil.
