Elevate Your Beauty Ritual with a Hybrid Cleanser
The simple act of washing the face is elevated when your cleanser is doing more than simply cleaning. A host of new and inventive cleansers from the green beauty set contain luxury oils and unique formulas that clean skin without stripping. These new cleansers are redefining the first step in skincare and turning our cleansing routine into a self care ritual.
Cleansing is the first step in skin care, but tends to be a bit an afterthought with an outdated approach that since it's not staying on the skin like a moisturizer, it's not as important. But it is! And with the newest formulations created with better, not just cleaner, skin in mind, the idea is to remove dirt and impurities while beneficial oils and ingredients working to calm, soothe, protect and nourish.
When to Cleanse
It’s very important for healthy skin to remove makeup before bed and to clear the skin before treating it depending on your skin concerns. But, whether you cleanse in the morning is up to you. Following a full cleansing routine isn’t for everyone in the am, often just getting the face wet in the shower is enough for some. For others, cleansing preps the skin for makeup, and is part of a morning ritual that sets the tone for the day. Use your own discretion based on your skin’s needs.
Just remember to go easy on your skin. Too harshly cleansing can strip the skin making problems like spots, acne, and dryness worse. Look closely at your skin and respond to what it needs instead of religiously doing the same thing everyday.
