Proper facial skin cleansing

Facial cleansing is something we do every single day. Actually, twice a day if we're precise. But do we ever wonder if we're really performing the cleansing ritual the way it should be done? I know what you're thinking; this surely isn't some science that should demand so many words, deliberation, and great skill – after all, it's just washing the face. Yes, all that is true, but let's remember that this innocent task is the foundation that dictates the health and appearance of your skin. Does it still seem so unimportant?
 

Facial Cleansing

Facial cleansing is a relatively simple step in skincare, where it's worth remembering a few little secrets that can elevate this skincare step to a completely different level. The first significant importance is also the first major mistake in skin cleansing, and that is consistency. Studies show that a high percentage of people simply skip evening facial cleansing. What's most interesting in all of this is the fact that, in doing so, they omit makeup removal.

Why is facial cleansing important? 

Our skin is an organ that breathes, senses, excretes, absorbs, protects, and responds. It quickly informs us when something doesn't suit it. Throughout the day, the skin secretes sebum, sweat reaches the surface, we touch our faces depositing microorganisms on the skin, and dust particles and environmental pollutants get trapped in the pores. And that's not all. Makeup is an additional burden on the skin, which needs to be regularly cleansed from the face, allowing the skin to breathe. Regular facial cleansing reduces the negative effects of free radicals caused by particles in the air, which are significant contributors to premature aging. Furthermore, cleansing is crucial for removing dead cells that accumulate on the skin, contributing to a dull and tired complexion, clogged pores, and creating ideal conditions for the formation of impurities and pimples. Despite all of this, moderation is key in cleansing, as no extreme is beneficial. To help you navigate and find the right balance for skin cleansing, we have prepared some tips on how to clean the skin on your face.
 

Makeup Removal

Evening skin cleansing is essential. If you use makeup and creams with sunscreen daily, inconsistent and superficial removal can quickly lead to the formation of comedones, acne, and impure skin. For this purpose, as part of your evening care routine, we recommend double cleansing the face. It is the golden rule for healthy and beautiful skin, resulting in completely clean skin that breathes and is fully prepared to receive skincare products and undergo night rest and regeneration.

Proper Facial Cleansing

Morning Ritual

The skin rests overnight and is not exposed to as many substances and irritants as during the day, but it still secretes oil, sweats, and comes in contact with dust particles. This is precisely why morning cleansing is highly beneficial for it. Of course, this process differs from the evening one, as it is shorter and intended to refresh and prepare the skin for a new day. Moisturize your face, apply a small amount of cleansing gel to your palm, massage it into the skin, and rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

Evening Ritual

A single cleansing session takes care of the surface removal of makeup, protective filters, and impurities. However, it probably won't be enough for deep cleansing of the remaining dense and persistent textures and daily impurities. Thorough cleansing of facial skin is a crucial step towards cleaner skin with fewer blemishes, and it also contributes to the easier absorption of skincare products, enhancing their effectiveness.

After double cleansing your face, clean the skin as usual, but in two consecutive steps. In the second step, you can also cleanse with the same cleansing product, but your double cleansing routine may be more effective if you use two different cleansers for the double cleansing of the skin. As the first step, we recommend a oil-based product that effectively dissolves even the most stubborn makeup and SPF filters. The final cleansing step is done using a gentle cleansing gel that does not contain sulfates.
 

How to properly double cleanse the face?

Ultra-gentle Omega cleansing oil removes makeup, SPF filters, and excess sebum while maintaining the natural moisture of the skin and the balance of the skin's hydrolipidic layer. Apply the lightweight oil to dry facial skin over makeup and massage thoroughly. In the next step, add some water to your palms and continue massaging. A texture of a light milk is created as emulsification occurs. Then rinse off the remaining product thoroughly and dry your face. The cleansing oil leaves no greasy residue behind, leaving the skin clean and relaxed.

Continue the cleansing ritual with the second step. Use the Facial Cleansing Gel, which will remove the last traces of impurities from the skin and prepare it for further care. Massage the gel onto damp skin and rinse thoroughly. The skin is fresh and completely ready for the subsequent care.

Choosing the Right Cleansing Product

Carefully choose a facial cleansing product regardless of your skin condition. Even non-sensitive and unproblematic skin deserves high-quality products. When we talk about a quality product, we mean a gentle cleanser for natural facial cleansing that effectively and thoroughly does its job. Its advantage is that it does not contain artificial foaming agents, silicones, synthetic fragrances and dyes, or potentially irritating ingredients. A product with all these features is a facial cleansing gel that impresses with its versatility and cleansing effect, regardless of the type or condition of your skin. It is crucial that the skin cleansing product does not dry out the skin and respects the pH of the skin.

Avoid excessively hot water

Hot water can dry out the skin, making it more sensitive. It is more advisable to rinse your face with lukewarm or even cold water. Cold water can also be the final step in facial rinsing, as it enhances the microcirculation of the skin, positively affecting the secretion of skin oil and tightening pores, preventing new acne outbreaks. For sensitive skin, the use of cold water prevents the drying of the epidermis, as it does not damage the skin's hydrolipidic layer.
 

Cleanse your skin twice a day

Facial cleansing is most recommended twice a day. In case you find this unnecessary, never skip the evening cleansing. In the morning, you can adjust the ritual and simply rinse your face with plenty of water if your skin is normal or dry, but do not skip this step if you have impure and oily skin. Also, repeat the cleansing process after physical activity and sweating.

Is the use of tonic necessary?

Facial cleansing products today are significantly gentler yet equally effective as they were in the past. They respect the skin's pH, so the use of tonic is no longer strictly necessary for the complete removal of impurities and restoration of the ideal pH balance. The key is to prepare the skin for further care and moisturizing, which should be applied in multiple layers on well-cleansed skin. Ensure a perfect start to your skincare with a Moisturizing Essence enriched with antioxidants and hyaluronic acid for radiant skin.

Be gentle to your skin

The most convenient and gentle tool for cleansing is right at your fingertips, actually our fingers. With their help, you can clean the skin gently and precisely enough. You can also use various tools, such as cleansing pads or even more modern versions in the form of mini devices, but the touch of your fingers is still irreplaceable. Let it be gentle, acting as a light facial massage to indulge all senses.
 

Pay attention to the cleanliness of tools

Cleaning doesn't only involve the face! Before starting the cleansing process, make sure your hands are clean and resist the urge to wipe your face with a family towel. Bacteria can multiply on the towel, and as a result, you may transfer them to your freshly cleaned face. Use a soft, clean cloth or towel used only on the face. Gently pat your skin dry, avoiding rubbing or pulling.
 

Don't skip the moisturizing step

Clean skin is happy skin. To keep it that way, you need to provide it with sufficient moisture and protection against external influences. The ideal start and the first step in moisturizing, preparing the skin for the application of all other skincare products, is the Moisturizing Essence for radiant skin. It is an excellent source of antioxidants and moisturizing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, glycerin, hydrosols, which firm, refresh, and replenish the skin with much-needed moisture. Next comes the daily cream, which targets the specific needs of the skin. In the case of combination skin prone to pimples, the right choice is CBD cream for skin balance. For dry and sensitive skin losing elasticity, the ideal choice is the Vitamin Cream for the face.

Don't overdo it with the face scrub.

Sometimes the skin also needs some additional help in deep cleansing and exfoliating dead cells. We can assist it with a cleansing clay mask or a scrub in a mechanical or chemical version. There are many different forms to choose from based on the needs and condition of the skin, but caution is advised, as excessive scrubbing can harm and overload the skin. As with anything, moderation is key, along with a keen understanding of our skin's needs.
 

The foundation that builds effective care

Skin cleansing is a crucial step in skincare that deserves a lot of attention. Poorly cleansed skin cannot absorb care, as even the most effective cosmetic products will not help if the skin cannot absorb them. According to experts, skin cleansing also has a strong impact on the condition of certain skin conditions, so choose cleansing products carefully and build a consistent routine that will lead you to healthy, clean, and youthful care. If you are still unsure how to clean your face, you can turn to us for advice.
