Cleansing may seem like the simplest part of your daily skin care routine, but it’s actually the step that many people get wrong. Some all too common bad habits when it comes to cleansing can cause a whole host of skin problems, including dry patches, irritation, oiliness, redness, clogged pores, and breakouts. Keep reading to discover how to cleanse correctly and what you may be doing wrong.
Make Sure Your Cleansing Both Morning and Night
Most people only cleanse before bed. Whilst cleansing in the evening is essential in rinsing the skin of any dirt and debris that may have collected during the day. This doesn’t mean your skin will stay clean overnight. Your skin is still working while you sleep, so cleansing your skin in the morning is important to reduce oil production and drops of perspiration that may have formed overnight.
Don’t Over Do It
Whilst you should cleanse twice-a-day, that is more than enough. Overwashing the skin or harshly scrubbing at it can strip the skin of natural oils, exacerbating your skin’s oil production, leading to acne.
Cleansing For Sensitive Skin
If you’ve got sensitive skin, you’ll want to make sure your hands are completely clean or alternatively use a soft washcloth to avoid irritation.
ZO Offects Hydrating Cleanser is the one for you. It gently hydrates and rejuvenates without disrupting the moisture barrier. Using panthenol and allantoin to soothe, repair, and restore skin, it sweeps away all the dead skin cells and supports cellular renewal.
Plus, it is best to use warm water. Both hot and cold water can be harsh on your skin. After washing, gently pat skin dry but leave it slightly damp.
