IS YOUR SKIN BEING CLEANSED PROPERLY?
Cleansing your skin properly –
One of the most important things to do
for your skincare to get the best results as expected.
Many women do not pay attention to this step or assume that just washing their face with water or ordinary cleansers is enough. However, washing face that way does not help their skin to be properly cleaned. Then, no matter what expensive skincare products are applied to their skin, it is difficult for the skin to absorb all the nutrients. It’s even worse that there may be pimples because the residual dirt clogs pores.
“Do you know, if your skin is properly cleansed, after just over 2 weeks, you can feel an amazing improvement on your skin?”
Let’s check if you have common “misconceptions” about cleansing our skin and find yourself the best skin cleansing method in this article.
List of common misconceptions about cleansing skin
Misconception 1: “Washing face with only water or cleanser”
Water can wash away only the dirt (seen with the naked eye) on the skin but cannot completely clean the layers of sunscreen, makeup, lipstick, eyeliner … Especially, in the current polluted weather with lots of dusty smoke, fine dust, if you wash your face just with water, “you will probably go to bed with dust from the street”. Meanwhile, with the help of makeup remover, face -wash, dirt, bacteria, makeup, and dirt deep down in your pores can be absolutely lifted away from your skin.
In fact, many women with their skin sensitive and irritated with cleanser lines, have to wash their face with water only. However, at present, cosmetic production technology has been very advanced with many natural, organic, skin-friendly cosmetic products on the market, that can be safely used to clean the skin.
Misconception 2: “Makeup Removal needed in case of makeup, without makeup, no need for makeup removal”
|This is not only a misconception but also a common habit because most of us assume that if we do not wear makeup, you only need to use cleanser for a simple face washing procedure. However, in order for our skin to be perfectly cleaned, we need to remove “sebum & dirt” from our skin after a long day.|
|Excess sebum is hard to be lifted away with water. In fact, “sebum” is the excess oil of the skin, secreted by the body to help moisturize the skin. However, the “sebum”, after a day of dirt clinging, will become a cause of acne if not cleaned thoroughly. Only when makeup is removed, clean these sebum layers can be completely removed from the skin. It’s thanks to the ingredients ,which can “vacuum” and “sweep away” to clean up the makeup layers, found in makeup remover products.|
|Only after the sebum is lifted away completely can effectiveness and efficiency of facial cleansing products be maximized. It’s due to the fact that the face wash products are designed to slip into deep pores to make them clean. Is it really hard to have our face completely cleaned if there are still sebum on your skin?|
Misconception 3: “Face wash products are all the same”
