To show off a youthful face that transpires purity and freshness you have to start at the beginning: “facial hygiene”. We sometimes forget it or do not give it the importance it has, but the most important step for the care of our skin is to cleanse the face.
Using the right products for our skin type and needs will make the treatment we apply afterwards much more effective.
The importance of a good facial cleansing?
The skin is the organ that covers our body. It is the heaviest one, the largest one and the most exposed. So many times the skin is unprotected against external aggression of daily life.
Imperfections, pollution, the oil our skin generates can end up blocking our pores and preventing our skin from breathing, thus losing luminosity and uniformity in the tone, and also reducing the effect of the treatments applied later.
For this reason, although you have put on makeup, facial hygiene is essential before going to bed, as during the night the skin is purified, cellular renewal takes place and DNA is repaired.
It is also important to cleanse the face when you get up, because during the night the skin generates lipids and dead cells that you have to remove, among other reasons so that the treatments applied afterwards are more effective.
First it is necessary to go frequently to your usual aesthetics centre for an in-booth facial hygiene and to be prescribed cleansing products suitable for your skin type.
Follow the daily facial cleansing routine steps:
- The first step: remove makeup from the eyes with an efficient, gentle product such as makeup removal lotions, biphase formulas and oil.
Process: soak a cotton disc and rub, massage with circular movements until no makeup residues are left.
- The second step: remove makeup from the face and imperfections with the makeup remover that best responds to the needs of your skin.
Dry or normal skin: the most suitable and recommended products for this skin type are the cream and milk textures, although there are also oil cleansers, in this way you will completely eliminate dirt and makeup.
Combination skin: this skin type allows to use products that are rinsed with water. Gel or foam textures are recommended that free the skin from imperfections and makeup without drying it. A micellar water would also be suitable.
Oily skin: it is the one that needs most cleansing as it generates a great amount of lipids that accumulate throughout the day and make the tone dull. The right textures for this skin type are gel or soap.
- The third step: and final one is to apply a lotion or toner that balances the skin’s pH.
With the skin clean, without imperfections, the face is ready to continue with the facial beauty routine.
