A common benefit of facial cleansing is the removal of dirt, oil, and other unwanted debris. Throughout the day the skin on your face is continually covered with bacteria, pollutants, viruses, dirt, and old (dead) skin cells. Daily facial washing removes these impurities to give the skin a fresh look. Without washing, your skin would be covered with a thick layer of dirt and grime which make it difficult for other products to penetrate the skin properly.
How and How Often Should You Wash Your Face?
To get the right type of clean it’s important that you find the right facial cleanser for your skin type. Consistencies and ways to use a cleanser can vary vastly. You can find anything from water-like cleansers to dense creamy cleansers. Some cleansers require rinsing while others can be used with just a cotton pad.
Cleansing should happen twice a day — once in the morning and once in the evening.
Overnight we sweat and our pores expel oil which makes us wake up with shiny or unclean skin. This is why we should start our day with removing excess oil, sebum and sweat from our skin and start fresh. In the evening cleansing can help remove makeup, oil and dirt that have accumulated on our faces throughout the day. Cleanse off any dirt and residue before you go to bed so that your skin can breathe and renew itself over night
