Many women ask if they really need to cleanser their face and the answer is, quite simply, yes.
Cleansing is a vital part of any skin care routine but it can cause confusion, so we are here to help to clear things up.
Do I need to cleanse morning and night?
Yes. Cleansing in the evening makes sense because it takes away the makeup and dirt of the day but doing it again when you’ve ‘just’ been asleep seems a bit pointless. The thing to remember is that whilst you sleep, sweat and dead skin build up on your face so by cleansing when you wake you are left with a clean, fresh canvas for the day ahead.
Isn’t water in enough for my skin?
No, splashing water on your face doesn’t constitute cleansing. You wouldn’t splash a dirty shirt with water and wear it again so why do the same with your precious skin? A good cleaners will take away the make-up, dirt and pollution that sticks to you skin and leave it clean and fresh once again.
A good place to start is by using Dermalogica’s Special Cleansing Gel. This is a soap-free, foaming gel that removes impurities without disturbing the skin’s natural moisture balance and is suitable for all skin types.
Help, I hate my spotty skin.
The key to acne free skin is a good diet, sleep, water and the right products. Dermalogica Foaming Wash is a purifying cleanser that is perfect for troubled teenage skin and anyone who is prone to breakouts.
The gentle formula helps clean and purify the skin without stripping away precious natural oils. Orange Peel and Tea Tree energise and refresh the skin and Salicylic Acid breaks up dead skin cells and clears trapped oil to help deal with existing spots and prevent future ones.
I am fed up with my dry skin, what cleanser should I use?
The Dermalogica Essential Cleansing Solution works wonders for dry and prematurely ageing skin as it replenishes it and maintains moisture levels. Essential vitamins and plant extracts nourish and condition skin and because it is water-soluble it simply rinses off leaving you ready for the day ahead.
Can I use a scrub everyday?
Whilst gentle exfoliating scrubs have a place in a skincare routine they aren’t intended to be used everyday. The Dermalogica Skin Resurfacing Cleanser is a dual action product that can be used two or three times a week leaving skin visibly brighter and smoother from the first application.
Lactic Acid concentrate removes dead skin cells, Vitamin E conditions and enhances softness and soothing Rose Flower Oil calms sensitivity.
I’ve heard cloths are good for taking cleaner of, is this true?
Yes, there are a number of products on the market so choose one that is right for you. The Dermalogica Sponge Cloth is super soft and you simply dampen it with water before taking off the cleansing product.
