Cleansers & Scrubs
Every day, as a result of both natural body processes and external elements, skin accumulates unwanted substances that reduce the smoothness, vibrancy and youth of the face and body. Unlike shampoo, which should only be applied no more than a few times a week, facial cleansers work best when applied daily. With the help of daily facial cleansers and their formulas designed to dissolve and wash away dirt, makeup, dead skin, excess sebum, and debris, you can begin your skincare regime with fresh skin and go to bed with a clarified face free of pore clogging makeup.
Almost everyone deals with pesky blackheads and whiteheads in their life. The best cleansers to free your skin are pore cleansers. Facial pore cleansers penetrate deep into clogged pores and flush out all the unwanted substances that water just cannot reach.
Following up with a toner and moisturizer for men and women is crucial to preventing future harmful particles from entering the pores and restoring moisture that may also have been stripped away by a cleanser.
What Does a Facial Cleanser Do?
Facial cleansers are great for removing make-up, oil, dead skin cells, and all kinds of pollutants from your skin, unclogging pores and preventing the formation of acne or other skin conditions. As cleansers are specifically made to be used on your face, they are a better option than soaps. As soaps usually have a pH of 9-10, much higher than the skin's pH of 5, they can change the balance of your skin and cause bacterial growth, resulting in acne.
How Often Should you Wash your Face?
While using a cleanser sounds great, you should make sure to not overwash your skin. Kiehl's experts recommend washing your face twice a day: Once in the morning to remove the bacteria that collects on your face when you sleep, and once at night to take off make-up and the dirt that is collected throughout the day. It is also recommended that you should wash your face after a workout to get rid of the sweat and bacteria to avoid clogging your pores.
How to Scrub your Face Properly?
The first rule to scrubbing your face is to ensure you have the right scrub for your skin type. When washing your face, make sure your hands are clean. Try to use warm water to ensure that your skin is hydrated. Most importantly, be gentle with your face to avoid causing damage to your skin. After you rinse off your skin, you should moisturize your face even if you have combination or oily skin.
