Face cleansers are an important step in any skin care regimen. We need to clear our skin of makeup and dirt daily, but could your skin problems be caused by your face cleanser? There’s a difference when it comes to face cleansers—some face cleansers boast about leaving you with a super clean face, but the long-term effects of over-cleansing with the wrong face cleanser will be the lack of beautiful, youthful-looking skin.
Buyer Beware of Harsh Face Cleansers
Not all face cleansers are created equal.
The skin care ads would have you believe that the “deeper” or more fully you clean your skin, the better—but that is not our approach to skin care. Using a cleanser on your skin should not leave your face feeling like you just scrubbed it with Mr. Clean. There are natural, protective oils and nutrients on our skin that should be left intact. While a deep-clean on your face skin can be achieved periodically through nurturing methods, your daily face cleanser should never give you a “squeaky clean” feeling.
Avoid sulfates as they will strip your skin of its natural lipid barrier.
When Should I Use My Face Cleanser?
Cleansers are best used once or twice per day, morning and night.
Some individuals with sensitive or dry skin may get best results when cleansing their face just at night. In the morning, a face bath of warm water followed by an organic skin toner is ideal to prepare skin for the day. For most skin types, a gentle exfoliant twice per week can help clear away dead skin cells that dull the surface appearance. Regular exfoliation can also help your serum to penetrate deeper into the skin.
This gentle and nourishing cleanser is ideal for all skin types. The Purifying Charcoal Organic Cleanser removes surface debris including make-up while delivering anti-aging benefits with DMAE. Purifying Charcoal Organic Cleanser leaves skin looking radiant, and feeling naturally clean. Prepare for your organic serum or organic moisturizer by following with organic toner.
Is the Purifying Charcoal Face Cleanser only for oily skin?
No. This is a great face cleanser for all skin types, but especially for those with normal to oily skin since these types tend to be susceptible to over-cleansing with harsher products.
