Steps on washing your face properlySeptember 29, 2015
The importance of cleansing your face daily.Washing or cleansing your face seems pretty basic, but we all consider skipping this step from time to time or maybe just forget. Let’s see why cleansing your face is important.
Your skin is the largest organ and it is important to make sure you are taking care of it – especially your facial skin. Since your face is not covered by clothing, it is naturally open to receiving the most abuse from the outside world from a variety of sources such as UV exposure, humid climate, air conditioning or heating, cigarette smoke and other pollutants. To help protect the skin from environmental damage, it creates a moisture barrier of an oily substance called sebum. While sebum is beneficial to your skin, if it stays on the face too long without being cleaned it can mix with makeup, dirt, debris, sweat, etc. This may cause a blockage of skin follicles leading to acne, blotchy skin, irritation and overall unhealthy looking skin
Cleansing allows the skin to breathe properly and freely and aids in preparing the skin to receive any nutrients while helping to restore the skin’s natural oils that can be temporarily impaired by makeup application.
Another benefit to cleansing your skin is that it promotes blood circulation to your face. Good circulation allows the blood to tint your cheeks and give it a naturally pink color.
Your cleansing routine shouldn’t be reserved just for the evening. Cleaning make-up and daily dirt from your face is definitely important, but cleansing away the dead cells and pillow lint in the morning after waking up can be just as important before putting on new make-up for the forthcoming day.
By washing your face twice daily as directed, using the products appropriate for your skin type and needs, you will experience cleaner, healthier and younger looking skin.
