Facial cleansing & Moisturizing
Regardless of your skin type (blemish-prone, oily, combination, normal, dry or sensitive), facial cleansing and moisturizing should be part of your daily skin care routine - every day, morning and night.
Facial cleansing is important for removing impurities, such as dirt, oil, pollutants and bacteria. However it is also important you don’t strip your skin and disrupt your skin’s natural moisture barrier. While facial moisturizing is an important follow up step to cleansing, a facial moisturizer won’t completely ‘repair’ a disrupted moisture barrier if you’ve used a harsh cleanser.
Your Skin’s Moisture Barrier
Your skin has a natural moisture barrier and it plays an important role in maintaining clear, healthy-looking skin. Your moisture barrier helps defend against external elements that cause blemishes, dryness and sensitivity. When that barrier is disrupted, cracks form, allowing external elements like dirt, bacteria, pollutants and cosmetics to enter, which may lead to skin sensitivity and blemishes. Those cracks also allow precious moisture to escape, leaving your skin looking and feeling tight and dry. Therefore, it is important to use products that are gentle and do not disrupt your skin’s moisture barrier.
Potentially irritating ingredients often found in face care products:
- Sodium lauryl sulfate / sodium laureth sulfate
- Fragrance & Dyes
- Exfoliating scrubs or micro-beads
