Cleansing – What Why and How

In a nutshell,*What? washing your face *Why? so you don’t get spots *How? with a facewashCleansing glorious cleansing! One of the biggest impacts on your skin. If done right it can change your face! You’ll glow, you’ll be clean, you’ll be Miss Smooooth… if done wrong you’ll sigh, you’ll probably apply more makeup. In my acne story the biggest B-I-G-G-E-S-T impact in clearing up my skin was changing my cleansing habits. For those of us prone to acne, this is probably our most important step!*What is cleansing? Put simply, washing your face. Cleansing means getting off all the makeup from the surface and – hopefully- washing away all the gunk that’s sunk into your pores throughout the day. It’s also important to cleanse in the morning, but you’ll be able to use a lighter product and it’ll be much easier.*Why do we need to cleanse? Spots, blackheads, whiteheads, blocked pores aging… isn’t that enough? Let’s take a second to think about all the nastiness that gets onto and into our skin during the day, make-up, bacteria from unwashed makeup brushes (is this you? naughty!), pollution, bacteria from doors etc on your fingers when you touch your face, dirt in the air (think bus exhaust fumes – yuk!), in some cities fine dust is a problem and of course your skin’s own oil. Think about it all just sitting on your face, bacteria, pollution, dirt, make-up, oil, and then you reach up to touch your face and this nasty cocktail is wiped into your pores… do you feel like you need to wash right now?! Me too!! >>>>If this is not cleansed away properly you WILL get spots, blackheads, whiteheads, congestion, fine bumps under the skin and blocked pores.*How do I cleanse thoroughly and properly? Cleansing is not about scrubbing and scrubbing and scrubbing. As tempting as it is to grab a high alcohol, exfoliating, harsh cleanser and scrub your face, you will only make skin issues worse. I made this mistake as a teenager, I did everything wrong. I stripped my skin of its oil, I scrubbed until my face was red, I irritated my young skin and gave myself more issues.Your cleansing routine needs to 1. Clean out your pores, 2. Be gentle to your skin- no irritation! 3. Be suited to your skin type. The best methods involve rinsing with water.If you wear face makeup during the day you may want to double cleanse or oil-cleanse to be absolutely clean.Cleansing What, Why and How – PART 2Now we know the What Why and Hows of cleansing it’s time to choose the right method for you,*Foaming facewash These tend to be aimed at acne/oily skins and particularly teenagers. Be careful, they are most likely to be astringent and dry out your skin. Check the ingredients list and do not buy if it contains any of the ingredients listed at the end of this post. Always remember gentle gentle gentle.*Exfoliating facewash As above with exfoliating beads to scrub the dead skin off – should not be used every day.*Creamy facewash or ‘hot cloth cleanser’ My favourite morning type of cleanser, a very creamy texture allowing you to spend time massaging your skin and less messy than a foaming facewash. Thanks to the huge popularity of the queen of all hot cloth cleansers, ‘Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish’, there are loads of lower priced copy cats out there to try.*Cleansing milks Like a thin lotion, best used rubbed over your skin with fingers then wiped off with a cleansing sponge or muslin cloth and rinsed with warm water. Sometimes the directions will say ‘apply to cotton wool and wipe over your face’ — call me crazy but that just doesn’t seem like it’ll get my face clean!*Astringent/lotions My least favourite. A consistency more like water than lotion (Remember Biactol and Clearasil from the 90s?). Pour onto cotton wool, wipe over your face. Most likely to cause irritation, least likely to get your face clean. *Oil cleansing method My favourite! Basically, open your pores with a hot flannel, massage oils onto skin, let it get into your pores to melt away dirt, wipe away with muslin cloth and rinse for beautiful clear, soft supple skin and no irritation! Start with Sweet almond oil, keep it really simple.*Ingredients to avoid*Sodium lauryl sulphate, IRRITATION! Drying, irritating, usually in any ‘soap-like’ cleansers. Also included in lots of shampoos to get your hair clean. Avoid contact with your face, avoid avoid. (This is NOT the same a sodium laureth sulphate which is generally considered perfectly OK to use)*Alcohols to avoid, not all alcohols are bad for your skin but steer clear of isopropyl alcohol and ethyl alcohol which will dry out and/or damage your skin with repeated use.*Parabens, methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, heptylparaben any word ending in paraben! A low cost preservative, too big to address here but for those of us prone to acne, keep away.Look out for Toner – What Why and How too.Adapted from http://www.promisingbeauty.blogspot.com
