The Importance of Cleansing Your Skin
Posted on October 16 2017
Cleansing is a vital component of any skincare routine, but unfortunately, it is also one of the most commonly neglected aspects of skincare. If you wish to maximise the effectiveness of your skincare routine, it is absolutely vital to effectively cleanse your skin each day.
Due to the amount of pollution present in the environment today, your skin is exposed to a huge amount of damaging chemicals such as cigarette smoke, car exhaust fumes, smog, dirt, and other particulates. These materials build up on the skin throughout the day, causing free radicals that oxidise and attack your skin. If these harmful pollutants are not properly removed from the skin they can result in an array of unwanted skin issues, such as accelerated skin aging, increased breakouts, inflammation, irritation, enlarged pores and more.
Cleansing your skin twice a day – or once a day if your skin is particularly sensitive, is the best way to remove these substances from the skin’s surface and prevent them from being absorbed, which wreaks havoc on the skin by slowing down the skin’s production of collagen and elastin, inhibiting the skin’s immune response and draining essential moisture from the skin.
In the morning, cleansing ensures that any excess oil and other unwanted particles that have built up over night are removed from the skin. Cleansing also acts an effective means of refreshing the skin, fortifying it and strengthening its barrier so that it is better equipped to tackle the effects of environmental exposure.
At night, cleansing removes all of the particles that have landed on your skin during the day and ensures that pollution does not remain on the skin and cause lasting damage. Without properly cleansing, the rest of the products you apply will not be able to work effectively, so make sure not to miss this vital step!
Our Edcysis Bio-Ferment Enzyme Cleanse is the best way to cleanse your skin, perfect for removing makeup and all other impurities. This luxurious cream cleanser contains a potent blend of intelligent ingredients. Super-fruit derived AHAs work to gently exfoliate the skin, sweeping away pollution, dead skin cells and any other harmful particles. Hyaluronic acid draws moisture to the skin and assists with strengthening the skin’s barrier.
Niacinamide also known as Vitamin B3, is a cellular-communicating ingredient that promotes skin calmness and clarity, balancing sebum production for a reduction in blemishes and a more even toned complexion.
This cleanser provides the skin with intense nourishment, containing avocado oil and aloe vera leaf juice for a hydration boost. Cleansing is essential for preparing your skin for the delivery of moisturisers, serums and oils and assists with the absorption of these intelligent ingredients.
This cleanser does not contain any physical exfoliators, making it gentle and suitable for daily use. Despite the abundance of cleansing products on the market that contain exfoliating beads, these products are actually very harsh and bad for the skin. Rubbing microbeads on the skin can cause tiny surface abrasions leading to roughness, redness and irritation.
Remember, cleansing is the basis of a good skincare routine. If you wish to achieve ageless beauty and maintain a glowing complexion, make sure you are cleansing your skin every single day!
