A good skin care regimen should start with cleansing. Washing your face with a cleanser made for your skin type helps to remove excess oil and dirt, preparing it for the following steps in the skincare routine. It is important to cleanse your skin only twice a day; washing it more often can strip away the skin’s natural oils and disrupt its pH balance. After cleansing, moisturise and protect it using creams, lotions and serums.
Your morning skin care routine should include cleansing. Cleansing your face in the morning is necessary to remove excess oil and sweat, while cleansing it in the evening is important to get rid of makeup and dead skin cells. Cleansing your face at night is just as important, but should be done twice. Use a gentle cleanser after washing your face in the morning. Avoid using too much of any single product, as this will only lead to irritation.
Cleansing is a key step in creating healthy, glowing skin. It helps remove dirt and dead skin cells and prevents clogging of the pores. It also helps make products penetrate deeper into the skin. Dr. Shamban recommends using a dry or clarifying toner made of witch hazel or salicylic acid. You should never use a harsh exfoliator as it can cause microtears.
