Cleansers house a plethora of benefits that not only help your skin maintain its optimal health, but will also alleviate symptoms, such as acne, blackheads, and other blemishes. While there are many different cleansers on the market that promise to rid your skin of unwanted blemishes and refresh it’s vigor, what’s really important is having the right ingredients. However, there is a time and place to wash your skin to reap the best benefits. So when exactly is the right time to cleanse our skin? Well, the answer lies in your skin type and other factors, such as how active you are. If you sweat more, you’ll need to wash more and vice versa.
Janssen Cosmetics offers many different cleansers for the face and body, whether you have oily skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, or demanding skin. With just the right ingredients, you can help balance your skin’s microbiome and keep it looking and feeling it’s best everyday.
Always Wash in the PM
Every night, your skin goes through a repair mode, releasing antioxidants, building up your skin skin cells so it’s useful to know that sleeping in makeup, or going to bed with the day’s grime all over your face and body can counteract this process, swiftly leading to blackheads and blemishes. This happens when dirt, oil and bacteria accumulate in the pores, blocking them, which over time can lead to unsightly complications within and on the skin.
What’s been building up on your skin won’t just go away over time and if you don’t wash in the morning, then washing at night at least helps the natural regeneration process, since skin cells typically renew themselves as we sleep. Whether you have oily skin, mature skin, dry skin, Janssen Cosmetics’ Mild Cleansing Cream, among others, works for every skin type, and is especially useful for those with sensitive skin. With naturally-derived oils, this cleanser is useful for makeup removal or as part of your daily washing regimen.
Listen to Your Skin
Some find that washing the skin in the morning helps to keep the skin cleaner throughout the day. Pay attention to what your skin is trying to tell you. If you are washing multiple times a day, you may want to scale back the cleansing sessions. Likewise, if your skin is feeling greasy and you’ve been only washing it once a day, then an additional skin cleansing may be needed.
It is ideal to wash your skin at least once per day, but many dermatologists agree that twice is better. While those with oily skin will most likely benefit from washing 2 or maybe even 3 times a day, over washing the skin may lead to more oil production than desired. However, those with naturally dry skin may find that once per day is enough since the skin doesn’t produce enough oil on it’s own to lubricate the skin naturally. It’s really up to you to assess how your skin feels after cleansing.
More Than Cleansing
Now that you know the importance of daily washing, there are additional steps that are also needed in the cleaning process to keep your complexion in top shape. One of them is exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells to reveal, fesher, more luminous skin. Exfoliation also helps products such as ampoules, serums, toners and creams to absorb better.
Ampoules, supercharged serums with powerful ingredients, improves the texture of skin. Not everyone uses ampoules, but they are very useful in providing more clarity, brightness, rejuvenation, as well as moisture to the skin. In addition to cleansers, ampoules easily absorb into the skin, after dirt and debris have been adequately washed away to help deliver deeper nourishment.
A cream is always the last step and is just as important as the cleanser. Creams help to keep your skin balanced and adequately hydrated and is one of the most important steps in the cleansing process. Along with cleansers, creams should be used daily, providing the purpose of keeping the skin hydrated and locking in moisture. Like cleansers, there are various formulations for creams that are ideal for mature skin to the most sensitive skin.
There are many wonderful benefits to using a skin cleanser, which helps to protect the skin, provide hydration, and keeps the skin supple. Cleansers are very necessary to the skin’s overall vitality and health and beauty.
