Step for a Healthy and Beautiful Skin

Choosing the right cleanser, according to the type and needs of the skin, is key to proper facial hygiene.

All experts agree that cleansing is the essential first step in caring for your skin. It is a mistake to think that if you do not wear makeup, you can do without this routine. Whoever chooses to clean their face only with water is also wrong, because they do not get a proper cleaning. Pollution, sweat or the cosmetics themselves accumulate on the surface of the face. If they are not removed, blackheads and other impurities may appear. In addition, the creams that are applied will not have the same effect, and the skin will lose its radiance.

Facial cleansing should be done twice a day, as the first step of the grooming ritual. In the morning, it is important to cleanse the skin with cleansing products to remove toxins that accumulate at night, as well as excess sebum and the remains of cosmetics applied the night before. Cleaning the face with just water does not remove all these residues. At night, facial hygiene is necessary to remove makeup, but also dirt that has accumulated.

Which cleaner to choose
From makeup remover milk, the star cleanser for years, we have moved on to a whole universe of products: micellar waters, makeup remover oils, cleansing balms, gels and soaps, foams … It is important to choose a texture and a formula that is comfortable and pleasant, but, above all, that it suits the skin type.

For dry skin, the doctors recommends “micellar waters and milk cleansers, above all. These skins need products with moisturizing agents, and, above all, that do not contain alcohol or astringent active ingredients ». For sensitive skin, the expert advises “Syndet products, called soap-free soap, which are cleansers formulated for sensitive skin because they are softer and more respectful of the skin barrier, and prevent these skin from being tight or suffering from redness and irritation.”

On the other hand, it is important to choose a specific product to clean and remove make-up from the eyes and lips. With makeup, these two areas take the worst part, shadows, eyeliner, masks, profilers, etc … all this load of product must be removed very well to promote breathing and repair. So we will need an efficient, non-aggressive, and protective removal product.

Double cleansing, the Asian ritual recommended by experts
In Korea and Japan, there is a deep-rooted tradition about the need to take care of the skin on a daily basis to protect it from aging. In these countries, facial cleansing is carried out in two stages: first, an oily product is applied and, second, a water-based one. This Asian ritual is the one recommended by dermatologists, pharmacists and beauticians to cleanse the skin. At least once a day, preferably at night, experts advise cleaning the skin with two products, this is what is known as double facial cleansing. It is a way to ensure that the skin is completely clean, and prevent pores from clogging.

Facial toner, the final step
Using a facial toner after cleansing is not a mandatory step, but it helps make the skin healthier and more beautiful.
