3 rules for a correct facial cleansing

3 regole per una corretta detersione del viso

Never wash your face with just soap and water. In fact, this action is not sufficient to guarantee us a clean and consequently healthy skin. However, everything you hear and read about cleansing can discourage many people from taking proper care of their skin. Let's simplify it as much as possible and see three simple rules to follow for a correct facial cleansing.

Facial cleansing: Choose the right product

Before explaining how to choose the right type of cleanser for each type of skin, a premise is necessary: removing make-up does not mean cleansing. So before proceeding with face cleansing, you must first remove make-up.

The make-up removal can be done with a biphasic or oily product that allows you to dissolve the make-up. Only once this step is carried out, you can move on to the next step: cleansing 

Each type of skin needs a specific type of detergent. 

  • Gel cleanser: it is the ideal product for oily skin as its action allows to normalize the skin's sebum production. It is a very delicate type of product that does not excessively stress the skin.
  • Cleansing milk: the right solution for dry skin. Thanks to its full-bodied consistency, the cleansing milk removes impurities while keeping the skin hydrated. 
  • Mousse: a cleanser in foam or mousse, it is ideal for combination skin. In fact, its delicacy will be able to treat every part of the face in the best possible way, from the most oily to the driest. 

Face Cleansing: Morning and Evening 

Cleansing your face morning and evening is important to obtain clean skin and therefore free from imperfections. 

Cleansing should be done at two different times of the day, which are in the morning and in the evening. In fact, in the morning, cleansing the face is important to remove the dead cells that have accumulated during the night rest, in addition to the various bacteria coming from our pillow that may have deposited on our face. In the evening, however, cleansing is important to eliminate traces of makeup, smog and other external agents that we may have "collected" in our pores during the day. 

You can think of using a specific type of cleanser for the day and one for the night, but never skip these fundamental steps of skin wellness and beauty. 

Facial cleansing: The right order 

It may seem obvious but it is not. Applying all the products in the right order is essential for a good result. Before proceeding with the application of the day and night cream, it is also essential to make sure that the skin is completely clean, without any traces or residues of dirt and impurities. Only at that point can you proceed with the next steps and ensure an optimal result.
