Facial cleansing is by far the most important element of skincare. It doesn't matter how old you are, what type of skin you have, or what problems your skin has, you simply can't go without cleansing twice a day. To effectively remove dirt that builds up on the skin during the day, or sebum when you wake up, use good-quality facial cleansing cosmetics. Ideally, those with additional conditioning ingredients. Taking care of your skin and looking after of all of its needs while cleansing? It’s simpler than you think!
Great makeup removal
Face cleansing is the main part of skincare, and it all starts with thorough makeup removal. Gels, liquid makeup removers and micellar water are designed to remove foundation, eye shadow and mascara from your skin. They're used for their cleansing properties, but it's even better if they also include nourishing ingredients perfectly suited to your skin type.
During makeup removal, the skin is often exposed to mechanical damage, so gentle cosmetics should be used. The best solution is micellar water or cleansing lotion. They should contain soothing and moisturising ingredients, particularly if you have skin that's sensitive and prone to damage. In such cases, soothing micellar water with aloe vera is a must – not only will it remove dirt, but also help soothe irritation.
Daily face cleansing with a gel
The next step is thorough facial cleansing. Great options include face wash gels and pastes. This step is designed to remove any residual makeup and impurities hiding in the pores. What’s more, thorough cleansing will reduce the risk of imperfections.
It's worth checking which additional nurturing properties the face wash gel or paste has. You should also match them to your needs. If you're afraid of excess dryness from water, the best solution is a moisturising cleansing gel with blackcurrant oil, which quickly restores the moisture balance. If irritation is a bigger concern, try almond cream cleansing gel with D-Panthenol.Excess sebum can be removed using a clay cleansing paste. Bamboo, mint and orange are ingredients that mattify, freshen, and minimisepores. All of these cosmetics are designed for different skin needs, but they have one thing in common – they're great for cleansing.
Should a scrub be enzymatic, coarse or contain acids?
Deep cleansing of the face can't be done without a scrub – you should use it two to three times a week, so as not to dry out and irritate the skin.
It should be matched to the type and needs of your skin. A mint exfoliating gel is an ideal solution for people with oily and combination skin. It's perfect for mattifying and tightening pores. Don't use a coarse scrub for sensitive skin – an almond enzyme one will definitely be a better option for this skin type. It contains almond oil and D-Panthenol to protect and soothe. On the other hand, combination or oily skin loves coarse scrubs.
Cleansing face masks are a must
A deep cleansing mask once or twice a week? What a great idea! Although cleansing cosmetics used every day remove most dirt, including anything hidden deep in the pores, it's good to apply a mask from time to time. It contains concentrated ingredients, leaving your face deeply cleansed, much smoother and more pleasant to the touch.
A face cleansing mask can provide the skin with nutrients, making it a great solution. Intensively cleansing clay masks often contain ingredients that moisturise and nourish the skin.
