Here’s How To Cleanse Skin

One of the biggest skincare mistakes that people make is not correctly cleansing their skin. A glowing complexion starts with regular and effective cleansing, but so many people either skip this step or fail to do it right. If you do not thoroughly clean your skin not only are you increasing your risk of blemishes, breakouts and irritation, the rest of your skincare routine may not be as effective, if you’re not working with a blank canvas. Wondering how to cleanse skin properly? We’re here to help.

How To Cleanse Skin Correctly

Cleansing skin goes beyond washing; it is about completely cleaning and prepping skin so that it is ready for the next step in your skincare regime. The first thing to do is to ditch your ‘fast beauty’ cleansing cheats, like face wipes or water cleansers. These can be a good on-the-go swap, or as the first step in a more thorough cleanse, but they will not do the job properly if used alone. If you’re using a face wash or foaming cleanser, or washing off a treatment cleanser, use warm rather than hot water, as this will be gentler on your complexion and prevent drying out your skin. And be mindful of your skin type when choosing your perfect match; sensitive skin will suit a mild gel or wash over a heavy oil-based product or too much scrubbing with a muslin cloth. Finally, invest in a high quality cleanser that will not only remove every trace of dirt, makeup and other debris but will nourish and protect skin, too. Here are two of our best cleansing solutions currently available on Pure Skin Boutique.
