Using a good facial cleanser cream is the first step towards taking care of your skin. The anti aging creams and the moisturizers that you apply to your skin will be of no use if you do not cleanse your skin properly in the first place. Let me tell you why.
Every day, your skin is exposed to harsh weather and various environmental pollutants. This makes your skin dry. To compensate, your skin secretes a lot of sebum. The combination of excess sebum, dirt and grime, and dead skin cells makes your skin an oily mess. Unless you clear this mess, the face creams that you apply will not be able to penetrate your skin deeply and nourish your skin cells. This is why you need to use facial cleansers.
Why not soap?
Most people use soap to wash their face. If you are one of them, read the next few sentences very carefully. You are making a big mistake. Soap tends to dry your skin. If your skin becomes too dry, it becomes flaky, itchy, and dull. It also starts developing cracks through which harmful bacteria can enter and cause infections. Cleansers, unlike soap, cleanse your skin gently without removing the essential moisture. So, it is a good idea to avoid soap completely and use a gentle facial cleanser cream.
What kind of cleansers?
Most cleansers these days contain synthetic chemicals like parabens which can be very harmful to your skin. So, it is advisable to go for organic products which are free of such harmful chemicals. Look for products that contain natural substances that are known for their ability to cleanse the human skin without making it too dry.
What are these substances?
Kaolin is a natural substance which is known for its cleansing properties. It is extracted from a special type of clay found in New Zealand. It improves circulation, heals inflammation, blemishes, and acne, and cleanses the skin gently. So, make sure you choose facial cleansers that contain Kaolin. Some other ingredients you should look for include cynergy TK, shea butter, active manuka honey, and macadamia oil. These substances cleanse your skin, rejuvenate your skin cells, reverse the aging process, and make your skin look softer and younger.
Should they be used regularly?
A cleansing mask, just like any other skin care product, should be used regularly. However, unlike a face cream, it should not be used every day. You can apply the cleansing mask to your face twice a month. You can apply the facial cleanser cream to your skin, leave it for about half an hour, and then wash it off. You can also use a good moisturizer every other week to have a balancing effect.
