Cleansing is the most important step in skincare, as it removes dirt, pollutants and makeup from the skin.
Without cleansing, the skin can become clogged with bacteria and dirt, leading to an increased risk of breakouts, dryness and other skin issues.
Cleansing should be done at least twice a day once in the morning when you wake up and once before bed. It is important to use products that are specifically designed for your skin type; if you have oily or combination skin its best to look for oil-free cleansers while those with dry or sensitive skin may prefer creamy formulas. For maximum effectiveness, massage the product into the face in circular motions before rinsing off with warm water. This helps to remove any residual makeup as well as sweat and sebum buildup from throughout the day. Afterwards, pat your face gently with a soft towel until it is completely dry.
Finally, use a gentle toner afterwards which will help close pores while restoring pH balance so that impurities cannot enter easily into them again. Applying moisturizer after cleansing also helps reduce dehydration of your complexion caused by using harsh products or environmental factors like air pollution and heat exposure from daily activities such as commuting or exercising outdoors. Toner can also be used directly onto spots where blemishes appear instead of all over the face for added spot treatment benefits!
