Are You Cleansing Your Skin At the Right Time?
Skin care is super important to your skin’s health but did you know the time you choose to cleanse your skin also plays a big part in its appearance? The time you cleanse can affect how your skin responds and can determine surface cell turnover. We are giving you the 411 on when you should be cleaning your face to get the best results for glowing-looking skin.
Let’s start off with saying that you should be cleansing your skin every evening before you go to bed. During the day dirt and pollution accumulate on our skin’s surface and you need to cleanse off those particles so that they don’t negatively impact your skin. For dry, sensitive and normal skin the best cleanser is a gentle, non-foaming cleanser to wash off any build-up. The product should be fragrance and alcohol-free so as to not irritate your skin. For oily and combination skin use a product that regulates oil production. Again we recommend using something alcohol-free because alcohol can dry out your skin and can cause your skin to produce even more oil, which is the opposite of what you want it to do. After cleansing you can apply a serum formulated for your skin type. This is especially helpful if you live in a city and are exposed to free radicals which can damage skin. Use a serum formulated with antioxidants such as Vitamin A, C and E, green tea, reservatrol or seaweed so they can help skin neutralize those particles and improve cell turnover during the night. Lock everything in when you apply a moisturizer at the end — for oily and combination skin look for an oil-regulating product and dry, sensitive and normal skin can benefit from a hydrating product.
Even though you cleansed your skin at night, you should also cleanse it when you wake up because sweat and oils have accumulated on your skin overnight. For dry and sensitive skin you may want to avoid this step or use a non-wash creamy cleanser. Oily and combination skin can benefit from a rinseable cleanser, to start the day with a clean canvas. Moisturize with SPF 15 or higher and you’re ready to face the day!
