There are many facial cleansing products in the market and this is why it is very important to be careful when choosing the right one for our skincare.
The types of cleansers are:
- Cleansing mousse
- Facial cleansing gel
- Emulsion and lotion
It would be better to avoid soaps for skin cleansing as well as cleansing mousses or gels that contain soap making ingredients, because they completely remove skin oiliness and cause dehydration. Moreover, extremely powerful cleansers should not be used even for very oily acne-prone skin, because when skin oiliness is completely removed then the skin is forced to secrete extra oiliness in order to balance the situation resulting in stimulating the follicular glands even more.
When choosing cleansing mousses or gels, then these should be of neutral PH and without soap making ingredients.
If an emulsion and lotion is chosen for daily skincare, it should be noted that the use of the lotion after the emulsion is necessary in order to remove any water-soluble deposits (that the emulsion cannot remove) and any emulsion residues that contain cleansing elements and should not remain on your skin.
It is also very important to note the following regarding the necessity of skin cleansing in the morning. Because our skin releases toxins, oiliness and other metabolic wastes at night, when we wake up in the morning we have to cleanse it appropriately so that all these substances are not trapped in our skin by the immediate use of day cream.
Tips: Ask your beautician for a recommendation concerning cleansers suitable for your skin type.
