Lets talk about Cleansing!
We all know we should do it, but sometime it's easy to think 'I just cant be bothered', or do I really need an expensive cleanser when I just wash it off? cant I just use soap? <- nope, no soap, we are not even going to go there. :P
Cleansing your skin is the first step is any skin care regime. Cleansing removes dirt, bacteria, makeup, sweat, environmental pollution and Urea to name a few things that get all up in your skins business!
Removing all this gunk prevents build up that leads to roughness, dryness, flakiness, irritation, congestion, breakouts, dullness, PH (acid mantle) in-balance and oxidative stress. Phew! That was a mouthful! and I could go on... you even have Urea seep out onto your skin when you sleep!
Anyone thinking they really want to wash their skin right now??? Next, what should we cleanse our skin with?
There are many skin cleansers on the market, but the question is, what does YOUR SKIN need? And is cleansing alone enough?
Cleansing your skin daily (twice a day is recommended, and it doesn't even need to be the same cleanser- you may like something more moisturising in the morning and more exfoliating at night for example.)
Cleansing every day helps to keep the skin clear for surface build up that could be causing many skin complaints that your skin normally gets the wrap for. A well cleansed skin gets more benefits from your other skincare products as these products will be able to penetrate deeper and more evenly.
Ursk's skin specialists recommend daily cleansing with the addition of regular exfoliation, serum application and daily moisturiser and sunscreen. It may sound like alot, but its really no biggy once you get into it, and when you see RESULTS you then cant get enough!
