How many times have you skipped the cleanser, opting for a makeup wipe instead, only to find that your skin starts to look a little dull after a few times of doing this?
Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. But if you can start to make cleansing part of your daily skin care ritual, your skin will reward you!
Why is cleansing important?
Cleansing is essential for removing dirt and grime that may have accumulated throughout the day. It helps clear clogged pores, keeping skin looking healthy and free from impurities. It’s also the first step in a skin care regimen, and really sets a good foundation for the products that follow. Cleansing should be done morning and night, and always followed up with a good toner.

Tips when cleansing
When cleansing your skin, always be sure to apply with clean hands, and to rinse with lukewarm water. Hot water will strip the skin of necessary oils, while lukewarm water will protect the skin’s natural moisture barrier.
Pat your skin dry with a clean towel before following up with your other products.
Also, be sure to cleanse twice a day, and don’t rely on makeup wipes for your daily cleansing ritual.
